I’m pretty sure I made Santa’s “Nice List” this year!

I’m giving you a sneak peek into my wish list.  Naughty or nice, you might just get some ideas from my list.


1.  Queen Anne Cordial Cherries

Queen Anne Cordial Cherries

The Christmas season officially starts once I buy a box of Queen Anne.  Now, they even have Cordial Blueberries, and they are as delicious as they sound.

2.  Yankee Candle

I love changing scents with the seasons.  North Pole is my favorite holiday scent from Yankee Candle.

Because the holidays don’t last forever,… *Sigh*… Vineyard is, by far, my favorite regular scent.

3.  Fuzzy Socks

I just love a nice warm pair of fuzzy socks in the winter.  Whether they are hidden away inside a pair of boots or worn alone around my house, a pair of fuzzy socks make me feel warm and happy.

4.  Coffee

The ONLY reason this wasn’t first on the list is because coffee is not just special to me around the holidays or in winter.  Coffee is one of my favorite things all year long.  I especially enjoy sampler packs because I love trying new varieties and finding new favorites.  You can read my review Here or order it at the link below.

My Absolute New Fave Flavor

5.  Auntie Anne’s Pretzel

Auntie Anne's Pretzel

All that mall shopping makes me hungry.  Auntie Anne’s Pretzels are my favorite junk food splurge.

6.  Bing Crosby Christmas Music

Bing Crosby

I just love the traditional music of the Rat Pack.  Bing Crosby is my favorite this time of year, but I won’t object to Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole.  Actually, a little Ella, Billie, or Louie belting out Christmas tunes is kind of nice, too. (Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, or Louie Armstrong, of course)

7.  A Christmas Story on DVD

A Christmas Story DVD

My favorite holiday movie!  I can watch it over and over.  To be perfectly honest, I do watch it over and over and over…

8.  Snow Globes

Why snow globes?  Because I’ve never really grown up.  Hopefully, I never will.

9.  Her

She breathes fire, and she knows it. You had better know it, too.

My daughter may be all grown up and living on her own, but it is not Christmas without her.

10.  Silk Nog

Silk nog

By far, Silk Nog is my favorite holiday beverage.  I look forward to it every year.


11.  Chick-fil-A Calendar



Chick-fil-A puts out a calendar every year.  It is not just a calendar, but also comes with a card.  You register the card online then bring it into a Chick-fil-A each month for a free treat.  There is usually at least one month whose free treat pays for the entire calendar.


There you have it!  Eleven of my favorite things.  I hope you got some ideas or learned a little bit more about me.  I had a lot of fun making this list.  May you all have a Very Merry Little Christmas!
