Christmas List & Link-Up!

Is it just me, or is this month already flying by? Christmas is just over a month away, and I have yet to buy a single gift. So send me your Christmas lists, people! Last year, my mom randomly asked for my christmas list and since I already did a post about it, I just sent her the link. I totally forgot about this until my sister asked a few weeks ago when my Christmas List blog post was going up…so I started thinking!
It gets so difficult as I get older to make a wish list, so if you have any ideas for me, I would love to know!
  1. Copper Mugs. I am all about Moscow Mules lately, so of course we need the right type of cup. These would also be a great addition to our bar (in progress)
  2. Amazon Echo. I have heard some great things about this, and we have wanted a bluetooth speaker for our house. This is the perfect combination of “smart house” and a speaker for right now.
  3. Alex and Ani Bracelets in gold. I actually love 4 different ones, V initial, sailor’s knot, Ravens logo, and a shark fin.
  4. GoPro Session. Dave has a GoPro but I feel like he doesn’t use it enough, and he doesn’t capture the moments that I would. So it would be awesome for each of us to have one for our travels.
  5. Camera. I have had the same camera for 5 years and while I love it, it’s slowly dying. Some functions don’t work very well anymore, and there are much better options out now. I don’t have a specific option that I would like, but my two favorites are the Sony A6000 and the Canon SL1
  6. Black Hunter Boots (size 9). I give in, I would love a pair of these! I went back and forth on black or purple, but the next item on my wish list makes black the perfect choice.
  7. Purple Hunter Boot Socks. Perfect!! Nice and cozy socks and they make my boots black and purple?! Yes please!
  8. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. I love this mascara, but I really am not one to spend so much on makeup. A gift would be great, and I know my sister is dying to have another excuse to go to Ulta. (Hi Emily!)
  9. Ugg Slippers. Okay, so maybe not this exact pair because that price tag is insane, but I love the stripes!
  10. Foldable Citizen Bike in Navy Blue. Dave has been talking about getting these bikes for so long. It will be great to wake on weekend trips and on the MegaBus!
There are also a few blog and business things I would love:

Now, because I am ALL about link-ups right now. I am so excited to announce that I am teaming up with Mary from Eat, Drink, & Be Mary for a Christmas Card link-up! On December 14th, we would love for you to link-up and share your Christmas cards with everyone! This will also be motivation to make sure they are sent out by the middle of the month 😉
I can’t wait to show off our cards this year, yay for our first married Christmas! I also can’t wait to see everyone else’s! You can grab the button below, and come back on December 14th you link-up with your post!

    Everybody keeps on talking about Hunter boots and they’re so cute, but I don’t know if I’d actually use them in Texas because the weather doesn’t get that cold. Yay for a Christmas card linkup! This is definite motivation for me to get my cards out sooner rather than later (but not before thanksgiving!).

    • Macy Volpe

      I say the rain in Texas is enough of an excuse 😉 I love them so much. We just talked about when we would send out our Christmas cards, and we are waiting until the week after Thanksgiving!

  • Veronica Vargas

    Ohhhhhh yes! So excited about the link up!! Woohoo! Love your Wishlist! The hunter boots you will love! Perfect for the Wishlist! I need to get mine going!!

    • Macy Volpe

      Yay! I can’t wait to see your cards. I hope I get them, if not I might buy myself a New years present 😉

  • Lauren

    I saw those boots while I was in Asheville and was SOOOOO tempted to try them on!! They might need to go on my list, too 😉

    • Macy Volpe

      We BOTH need them! 😉

  • Meg Taylor

    Oooh yay I hosted a Christmas card link up last year and loooooved seeing everyone else’s cards. I will definitely be linking up this year! Last year I also made a wish list on my blog waaaayyy too late, so I feel like I need to make one earlier this year to share with my mom, too 😉

    • Macy Volpe

      yay!! I am so excited to see your cards! I am glad my sister kept reminding me to write mine, I just needed to sit down and actually think of things!

  • Charlotte

    Great git ideas! I love Alex and Ani–bracelets make a great gift idea (taking notes). and those Moscow Mules–so cute!

    • Macy Volpe

      They really do! Such a great price and they have so many different options. Thanks for reading!

    I’m seriously wanting a Nikon D3300! I’ve started dropping hits to Casey, haha. I think it’s a good beginner camera, but would welcome any thoughts!

    • Macy Volpe

      Our friends have the Sony that I linked to, and it is amazing. I’ve heard good things about the D3300 as well though!

  • Anne @ Love the Here and Now

    Loving your wish list! I have black hunters….bought them as a gift to myself this fall and I love them! I’ll have to check into the socks. My daughter outgrew her Ugg slippers so I am the proud owner of (gently used) slippers and they are amazing. I have to be honest; I am not a fan of the Moscow Mule but I love the mugs. I think I need some to add to my bar cart.

    • Macy Volpe

      Thank you!! The same things happened with my Uggs, I gave them to my mom once they started getting snug. She loves them more than I did now. I would also love a bar cart! I should have added that to the list.

  • Sarah Alway

    This is genius! I need to do a post like this for relatives who are constantly asking me for a list. Also I LOVE the copper mugs from Crate and Barrel. They are a little bit different of a shape than others I’ve seen and they’re our absolute favorite. Moscow Mules are the best!

    • Macy Volpe

      It worked out so well last year, it’s funny how many people have asked for it. I didn’t even know they read my blog haha.
