FF – 5 things on my wish list

Did I ever tell you that Christmas time is my favorite time of the year?  I may have mentioned it once or twice.


And what do you know?  It’s here again!  Here are some things on my Christmas list this year.


1.  The beautiful, magnificent Mac.





Okay, so I’m cheating a little since Jon and I already bought this for ourselves as our Christmas gift to each other.  And let me tell you – it’s totally awesome (except that it’s loading about 5 thousand updates right now and therefore I am back on my PC…le sigh).


2.  An apron.  And not just any apron, a Jessie Steele apron.




This has been on my Christmas list for about 3 years in a row now!  I still don’t own a single apron and I’m sick of the food all over my clothes.


3.  Wine of the month club.




I swear I am no a lush but I just love tasting new wines!  There is no better way to taste a wine that I’ve never tried before than to trust someone who hand selects them just for your enjoyment!


4.  Saute Pan.




I want to start replacing our old and outdated pots and pans and why not start with a pan I don’t even own yet!  I love cooking sauce and pasta, but we don’t even own a pan for one!


5.  Pretty much anything from Express or H&M.




I love clothes and wearing pregnancy clothes for most of last season, I’m dying to refill my closet with the new trends!


What’s on your wish list?

What are you favorite stores to shop?


Got a Friday Five?  Link up!


  1. I want a kitchen scale. I often half recipes and it would be nice for meats to know exactly how much I’m making for the seasonings.

  2. That is the cutest apron I’ve ever seen! I hope you finally get it this Christmas!!!

  3. I have that pan and rarely use it, lol. Mostly because I don’t cook.

  4. The biggest thing on my Christmas list this year is a DSLR camera… I can NOT wait!!! :)

  5. I love Express!!! Especially their glittery holiday stuff. And I’m digging the colors of their spring collection!
    I own more sauté pans than frying pans- I find them more comfortable to use. We bought a bunch this year when we switched from nonstick to stainless. Myhabit occasionally runs awesome sales on stainless cookware- check it out.

  6. I’m finally jumping on the FF bandwagon, and totally jacked your idea this week ;) Thanks for letting me link up. Oh and that apron is adorbs.

  7. Since I live out in the boondocks shopping is pretty limited so when I do go somewhere I make sure they have a Kohl’s. I love me some Kohl’s! What I really like is I can buy gift cards at my grocery store and get quadruple fuel points then I turn around and use the gift cards when I go to Kohl’s or shop online. Win Win!

    I really don’t want anything for Christmas. I’d rather give than receive. No wait. The one thing I asked for this Christmas was a Tupperware egg white seperator. And I know my sister-in-law ordered it for me. Oh and TNT bought me a scrapbooking rolling tote. So excited to use it, but I will probably end up wrapping it for myself! lol

    • Carrie – LOVE those two! They sound awesome. I love giving gifts too, but I love receiving them almost as much ;) ps I order almost all of my gifts online anyways!

  8. I have TWO of those pans, and I reach for them for almost everything I cook! The All-Clad 3 quart saute pan that you have pictured there is in my opinion the best pan you can buy. I got my first one when I was 21? 22? and it’s still just as good today at 34 as it was back then. Spendy, but when you never have to buy another pan again? Worth every penny! Cooks like a dream! I can’t say enough good stuff about it. :)

  9. love all of this! Especially the wine, saute pan, and clothes :-)

  10. 1. I need a Mac- pronto!
    2. If I had an apron that cute, I’d probably cook every.single.day.twice. Well, not really, but that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it! Oh, new pans and some good wine would also help ;)
    3. Express and H&M are definitely my go-to stores. I LOVE their clothes- and they actually fit me! Plus, I can always find great deals and awesome clearance items. My son also benefits from my H&M love- they have such cute baby clothes!!!
