Thirty Day Challenge-Day Twelve

We had such a great weekend but it went by way too quickly.  Friday I worked and then went for a long walk with my friend Lyndsay (we are thinking about two miles).  It was nice to finally get outside since it has been raining sooo much lately.  Friday night Josh and I just laid low since he had to take a huge/important test early Saturday Morning.  Saturday night we went out to eat at Margaritas (YUM!) with his friend Pete.  After we went to a UMO hockey game because my dad gave us some tickets he got from work.  I had never been to one before and we had lots of fun.  Today we slept in longer than originally planned so we didn't do too much.  I went for another walk with Lyndsay and then Josh and I did laundry/cleaned the apartment.  I am currently avoiding writing a paper by blogging.  :)
Today's challenge:
Christmas is coming soon!  Post your Christmas list for all to see.
Well, I have been struggling to come up with a Christmas list this year but I will do my best!  Please don't judge my expensive taste-that is the reason I don't usually post Christmas lists :/ Loved ones: Please do NOT feel required to buy me anything off of this list!
In no particular order with websites included (in case anyone is feeling generous, haha!):

Boots I have been wanting:

Ugg Boots: Size 5 Classic Tall for women in Chestnut.  They have free shipping right now!
Round-toe Stiletto boot in brown leather, size 5 1/2
Clothes I would love to own (any of these would be fine in different colors as well, if the ones I chose are unavailable!):
 American Eagle Puffer Vest in Navy, size medium (I read in the reviews that it runs small) On sale for only $20!
Women's American Eagle Boyfriend Racer Tank in baby pink, size small.  These are buy one get one 50% off and I totally wouldn't mind getting a 2nd one in any of the other colors (I wear these to practice allll the time!)
 Hollister Co. Womens (Bettys) Wheeler Springs Sweater in Pink, size medium (This is the PERFECT teaching cardigan!)
 Hollistor Co. Betty's (Women's) Solana Beach Sweater in red, size medium (another cute teaching cardigan)
 Hollister Co. Betty's (Women's) Jack Creek Sweater in Navy, size medium. (Teaching obvi.)

Women's American Eagle Pocket Cardigan in purple, size small (for teaching of course!  I love this color but any of them would be appreciated.)
American Eagle Classic Cardigan in Raspberry Bubble (pink), size small. (Another teaching sweater that I would love in any color, but the pink stands out to me most.  On clearance for only $20!)
 Old Navy Women's Corsage Cardigan in Light Heather Gray, size small. (A TON of Old Navy cardigans just went on sale for $20, including this one.  Any of the colors would be amazing...I love these!)
Old Navy Women's V-Neck Cardigan in Tahiti Lagoon (turquoise), size small. (Another one of the Old Navy cardigans that is on sale for $20 that I love!)
Old Navy Women's Rosette Cardigan in Coca Powder, size regular-small.  (Yet another teacher sweater...are you seeing a trend yet?)
 Old Navy Women's Lace-Front Tank in Hibernation (white), size small (great high neck for under teaching sweaters which is unfortunately difficult to find.)

Old Navy Women's Lightweight Ruffle-Trim Top in Street (gray), size small. (great for under teaching cardigans!)
Charlotte Russe-Sleeveless Scoop Neck Ruched T-Back in green OR white, size small (another to wear under teaching sweaters!)
Maurices Satin Ruffle Front Top in Nine Iron (gray), size small (for, you guessed it, teaching!)

Books I would LOVE to have/read:  
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, Magic Hour by Kristin Hannah, Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen, Just Listen by Sarah Dessen, Precious: A Novel by Sandra Novack, A Child is Missing by Karen Beaudin, Must've Done Something Good by Cheryl Cory, Chosen by Chandra Hoffman, and anything else on my "must read" shelf on Goodreads.

Childrens books I would love to have for my classroom:
1000 Best New Teacher Survival Secrets by Martin and Brenny, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See? by Eric Carl and Bill Martin, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carl, Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney, Olivia by Ian Falconer, David by David Shannon, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst, Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel, etc. etc. etc. 

As you probably noticed, my focus right now is preparing for teaching.  I am in desperate need of teaching clothes and materials at the moment!  Trust me when I say you can NEVER have too many cardigans when you are a teacher :)   For fun I also love hoodies, sweat pants, socks (both ankle athletic and tall for under boots), gift cards, anything Boston Redsox, and candles.  I will probably add to this Christmas list if I find other items I would be interested in for Christmas!
