All I Want for Christmas

By now, most people (read: not me) have finished their holiday shopping, and are hunkering down for a weekend of festive music, cookies, and wrapping presents.  But just in case there’s anyone out there who hasn’t quite finished up yet, here’s what I’ve been adding to my Christmas list for the past couple weeks.

Ticket to BlogHer ’15

Last summer, I attended my first conference – Boldface.  It was a creative writers’ conference in Texas, and my attendance was sponsored by my alma mater’s English department.  I had an amazing time and learned so much, and since I’ve been dreaming of attending a blogger conference.

BlogHer ’15 is being held in NYC, a city I love visiting, and have never had a chance to see in the summer.  It’s a well-known conference with some great speakers, and amazing opportunities for networking but unfortunately, even with the student rate (which, since I’m still enrolled in school for my paralegal license, I’m pretty sure I’m eligible for) it’s a pretty expensive weekend once you add in the price of a hotel room.

Yarn

For the last several months I’ve been pretty much neglecting my crochet projects.  Now that it’s getting cold out though, I’m ready to curl up in bed with a ball of yarn and a new pattern.  The only thing I need now is more yarn.  (Okay, I always need more yarn)

A New Wardrobe

Seriously.  If anyone ever accidentally stumbled over here thinking they were on a fashion blog, they’d be immediately corrected by the mere sight of my closet.  Especially now that I’m working in an office, my clothing is seriously lacking and I could use a trip to Ann Taylor to fix that.

This Calendar

Great Musicians, 2015 calendar.  I ran into this beauty on Pinterest and basically fell in love right off the bat when it lured me in with a Fleetwood Mac quote.

    Can I get in on this new wardrobe? Because that would be fabulous.

      Yes!! We can go shopping together!

    Oh I’m hoping you can go to the conference! I love conferences and I’m wishing to go to a blog conference sometime too! :)

      I hope you get to go to one, too Gina!

    I love fun calendars! The one you picked is a great choice. :)

      Me too! It’s silly, but it’s a small thing to look forward to the new month so I can see what the next page is.

  • Amy Oraftik

    I haven’t done any of my Christmas shopping either!

    • http://www.sheisfierce.org/ Kiersten McMonagle

      Oooo so glad I’m not the only one! Hopefully I’ll have a chance to go tomorrow!

  • Jessica Marie

    I ended up making a list. Thanks for that idea! http://clayxmatthewsxfan89.blogspot.com/2014/12/all-i-want.html

      I’m glad it inspired you!

    I would LOVE to attend a blog conference next year. It will largely depend on where Dan and I end up living! That’s very much up in the air right now, so we’ll see.

      Oooo I hope you get to!! My biggest problem is that for the most part, blog conferences take place in places like New York and Texas, which means that I’d also need to rent a hotel room, get a plane ticket, etc. I know there’s at least one in the Philly area, I think I just really had my heart set on BlogHer.
