Christmas Craving

I’ve been counting down the three weeks until our winter break at school begins.  We’re done on December 16th, and I have THREE WEEKS OFF following that.  Like I said, I adore this school schedule.  D and I decided to do a quick little trip this year sort of as our Christmas present to each other.  We’re doing an all-inclusive in the Bahamas for four nights.  I’m beyond excited.  Since D and I are vacationing, we figured we would go smaller on the gift front and do stockings with a smaller monetary limit.  Here are a few of my Christmas cravings

Fun nail polish 

Nail polishes are the perfect stocking stuffers!  I loving matte polishes this season or any of Essie's winter collection.

Leg warmers

Olivia mentioned AA when I posted about my want for over-the-knee socks.  I think these are amazingly perfect.  Pair with some thin socks and keep your feet extra warm in winter boots.

 No, not diamonds for me.  I lost my favorite black "diamond" studs before we left Athens.  My "pearls" finally looked so awful I could no longer wear them.  The current cubic zirconias are on their last legs as well.  It's beyond time for a couple new pairs...

Elephant necklace

[J Crew, $24; on sale for $14]

I fell in love with this necklace quite a while back.  There's something about a cute critter on a necklace that I love.
Garmin footpod

 [Amazon, on sale $36]

I'm pretty sick of using my unreliable Nike+ for running.  With the cooler weather coming in, I'm doing a lot more running on the treadmill.  I'd love to finally have a footpod to sync my Garmin on the TM.

Until I can crochet awesome pieces like these, I can always use more ways to keep warm!

I could go on forever, but I keep the rest on my Amazon wishlist...where I also keep my pricier wants :)

I just bought the elephant necklace this past Friday and have already worn it twice! Possibly three times after today...

Love those leg warmers. I got a couple of pairs and they are the best.

Those nail polish colors are pretty...I don't see a lot of glitters from Essie. They must be new. And my sister is getting that elephant necklace for Christmas. It's perfect for Alabama! :)

Love glitter nail polishes and LOVE those gold knotted studs!

Yes to everything... especially the three weeks off. We get the same. Do you have a furlough week or do you usually have the 3? Either way... I am READY!I like your idea of going on a little trip and getting small gifts! I think getting only socks for Christmas and then going on a trip sounds like a great trade off.

Wow, great list. I think I want pretty much everything you listed now :) I have been loving all the glittery nail polish I've been seeing around. So fun!
