Christmas lists & this week's looks.

'Tis the time to write Christmas lists!  How are y'all doing on putting yours together?  Are you having a hard time or do you know exactly what you want? 
I'm almost always in the latter group.  I think part of the reason is that when I first start thinking of what I "need", I come to the conclusion that I am so fortunate to have all of the really necessary things in life: food, love, clothes on my back, and a roof over my head. I don't need anything.  Not one thing. Ever again.  

But, then I get asked "Okay, well, if you don't need anything, then what would you like?" 
What would I *like*?  Well, I can think of a million things that I'd LIKE! Sweaters, boots, tennis shoes, stuff for the house, a new computer, a new phone… and then before I know it, I get overwhelmed with ranking which things things I'd like more than others and trying to predict what my gift-givers' budget is.  So, most of the time, I take the easy way out and just say "GIFT CARDS, please!".
But, there really is something so fun about receiving a gift that you didn't specifically ask for-- an actual surprise!  Because at the end of the day, you're receiving something special from someone that you love-- what could be better than that?!
