All I Want for Christmas...

Yes, I know it's early November.

However.

This Christmas is my 3rd away from my family, 3rd while it's cold outside, 3rd as 'woe is me'. So I get to act like a little spoiled brat, and do my wishlist now. Too bad I can't send it to Santa.

Anywho. Yes I know we are going to NYC for Christmas, huzzah! But still. A girl likes some presents.

This year, in September, I told KC I knew what I wanted for Christmas. After he was done rolling his eyes, he asked what I had in mind. I said 'something Pride & Prejudice related'. He did his fake shocked face, and then said 'yeah....?' like I had something in particular in mind. I didn't. All I want is something that I love from someone I love. I have tons of copies of P&P and other things, but I've picked them all out for myself. So I told him he could pick anything out, just as long as it's P&P (or Jane Austen) related.

This was my face when I saw the pillow:


You know, just sayin. It could be any of those things, or none of them and I would be completely happy as long as he picked it out himself. And if he read my blog, there might be some ideas. Just sayin.

What do you want for Christmas?

  1. I love that you have your list ready and it is something that you totally love! I had to laugh at the "an expensive pillow" after everything else had a link with a price! hahaha! I hope that he finds the most awesomest (that is totally a word) P&P thing out there that you don't even know about yet! :)

  5. I am still trying to get my husband to take the hint and get me a new HP set for Christmas/birthday lol. He doesn't share my love for books and doesn't understand I want book-related things! Pride and Prejudice and Kitties is intriguing.

    ReplyDelete
  6. hahaha ohhh you and P&P = so entertaining and I love it! I can only hope he comes through with something pretty fabulous! (Cannot believe Christmas countdown is on!) xoxo

  8. You are too cute!!!!! I love all your ideas and I bet he does too! You just made his Christmas shopping super easy.

  9. I like the Pride, Prejudice, and Kitties. I don't know why but reading that made me literally LOL. I almost died.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Pride, Prejudice, and Kitties...that is hysterical! I love it. I have this bad habit of buying myself my own present to give to my husband to give to me. I already have my Christmas present for this year from him...lol. It's not that he's bad at buying gifts either, I just always know exactly what I want so i figure why not save him the hassle, right?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Christmas in NYC is the best! We did that last year (and I really want to go again this year!) AND we still did presents. So you definitely need everything on this list in addition to your trip :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. YAY I can't wait for you to spend Christmas here :) :) :) We will absolutely have to stumble into a bookstore or two and find you something P&P/Jane-related from New York

    ReplyDelete
  13. haha i love it! i might need to put some of this stuff on my wish list...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I hope you get all things P&P for Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love this list! I feel like I really need to read Pride and Prejudice and Kitties. It sounds like my kind of book. Those collectible versions are SO pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Want. That. Mug. :) I definitely wrote a Christmas list a couple of weeks ago and sent it to my mom who sent it to whoever wants to buy me something. You have to write lists this early so people have time to decide what to get :) lists are helpful! I wish Joey would give me one now and then.... I think each year for Xmas my parents get him a gift card for Hockey Life (a hockey store... was that obvious? ;)) and I get him a skate sharpening card as part of his... 10 free sharpenings. SO exciting..... lol wow ramble! Cute cute list though!! XO

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my gosh, I love this. I'm a P&P nut (my husband doesn't understand the fascination), so I hope you get EVERYTHING on this list!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I want that mug and pillow and I haven't even read the book!.

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL! While it is an expensive pillow indeed, I think it's a perfect gift idea for you! How thoughtful of you to help your husband out and prepare this list for him. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. NYC for Christmas sounds like a dream! I am the same way, I love to be surprised to I try and put hints up everywhere without every really saying anything :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your deep love for P&P seriously puts a grin on my face, everytime! This is a great idea for a post... Hubs and I were talking about Christmas gifts just last night and I always give him a few helpful hints ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love how much you love P&P! And definitely love that fun pillow! So happy for you that you're going to NYC for Christmas!! Eek!

  37. Love this very subtle post!!!!! ;) I hop the Mister nails it this holiday season!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. So lucky! I've always wanted to spend New Years in NYC! It's on my bucket list. Of course, I love all your P&P choices. ;) We should start a Jane Austen book club. (maybe I've been watching too many movies..hah)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Well I'm zero help because I think you NEED all of these things ;) though especially the calendar and that set of books!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I had no idea there was so much cool Jane Austen shit out there!!!!! Obviously someone has done her homework... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, if he can't figure out something P&P then he is in trouble :) I had no idea there was so much available. P and I like to do trips for Birthday/Holidays...though he usually cheats and buys something too. He's very thoughtful, for my birthday this year we went to Maine and I got my camera (early but still it was "for" my birthday) but on my birthday he had pictures printed I had been meaning to have printed for a frame I bought which was SO sweet and thoughtful :) I personally would rather skip the whole gift giving thing and just not get any gifts and not have to buy any either ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think you need the mug and a very pretty edition of one of the books.

    ReplyDelete
  43. This is soooo cute! I love how much you love P&P. It reminds me of my pink obsession. Someone had a pink waterbottle today and started talking about the other flavors it comes in. I was like...are they pink? I don't care about anything other than I can have a pink drink!! Sorry, off topic. I love that pillow and at first was like that's not expensive but OMG for a pillow yes. I've never spent that much on a pillow.

    ReplyDelete
  44. NaNoWriMo takes me away from blogland and reading blogs for a week and you publish the mother load of P&P posts. Really Kristen? lol I've never read any P&P variation/derivative novels. Are they good? Also, I need that mug right meow.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love this list!! And it makes my heart flutter how much you love to read the classics like I do! Im serious ... we're a dying breed!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I just saw Austenland with Kerry Russel, and it was super cute! It didn't get great reviews, but if you love Jane Austen...it will be right up your alley!

    ReplyDelete
  47. He definitely has it easy! Love the box set of her complete collection.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hahah! You are P&J obsessed! Too funny! I hope you get ALL of it! :) I haven't even thought about what I want for Christmas... I should do that. Although I'm pretty sure everyone is going to buy for the baby instead. Lol

    ReplyDelete
  49. The Jane Austen Rules: A Classic Guide To Modern Love is a book I've been wanting to find. As a married woman it would be of no practical use to you, obvi, but it seems like it'd be a fun read :)
