Eat Drink & Be Mary: Dear Santa...

11.17.2014

Dear Santa...

I know it's only November, and that Thanksgiving hasn't even come yet...but Christmas is everywhere y'all.  It's in Target.  It's taken over Starbucks.  Heck we're already practicing for our school Christmas play + clogging Christmas recital.  Might as well embrace it y'all.  Tis the season.


And if I'm being completely honest, I've been listening to Christmas music while at the gym, too.
 So all this Christmas can only mean one thing, it's time for the 2nd Annual These are a Few of My Favorite Things link up with Cheers Y'all + friends.  And I'm not one to say no to make a wish list.  Girls love making lists.


Dear Santa, [aka: mom, dad, Thomas, anyone...]
Eye-Fi Wireless SD Card [found here
This memory card, sends the photos taken with your camera straight to your phone/tablet/computer using wifi.  Preferable the 16GB because well I take an insanely large amount of pictures.

Starbucks Traveler Mugs [hearts | polka dots
My dad may tell you I don't need either of these because he thinks I have too many.  To that I say, there is no such thing...good thing y'all don't know him.  Because seriously, aren't they the cutest?

 
Camera Strap [sequins | navajo print | polka dot]


Gift Cards specifically to Starbucks or Target, but you can never go wrong with any giftcard!



...I'm actually short on ideas this year, so share in the comments what you're hoping for this year so I can get some ideas!





 
 Say hello to this month's sponsor, Chelsea!

  1. I had no idea they had ever invented such a thing as a camera wifi SD card. Crazy! And I now want one. But first I need my "big girl" camera. That's the top thing on my Christmas list! I especially need one to work on my food photography. ;) Have a fabulous week, Mary!

  2. Aw crap... That sd card is freaking brilliant.


    A Samsung Galaxy 2 camera is on my wish list (and I'm pretty sure wrapped in my living room already lol). If it didn't already do the whole wifi thing... I'd totally need one of those SD cards. Ha

  3. Love that starbucks mug - so cute! I'm also wishing for a Better Life Bag. And one of those specialty planners - Emily Ley, Erin Condren, Whitney English, any or all of the above ;)

  6. I've never heard of a memory card that can do that! That's awesome! I will definitely be adding that to my list this year!!

  8. Ok so I've seen those SD cards in the past but thanks for reminding me!! I think I need to add that to my list as well :)

  9. Those Starbuck cups are soo freakin cute I want both and I don't really drink coffee! I have a really short list this year myself, it gets shorter and shorter the older I get.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm adding the memory card to my list now! Great idea. I think the older you get the shorter your list is. All I really would like are new running shoes and gift cards.

  11. yes to all of these!!! i don't actually have anything on my list this year. i'm pretty content with what i have… which rarely happens haha

    ReplyDelete
  12. I can hardly contain my holiday excitement. I've been inspired by your list! We set a $25.00 budget for gifts in my family so I always try to come up with little things to ask for, like fun new jewelry, nail polish etc!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love that Starbucks traveler mug! I hope you get it!

    And random but I’d love if you shared this post on my new Weekend Snapshots link up. The link-up just went live today!

  17. I do believe that I need that wireless card too. I would add some really cute jewelry from Etsy, you know artisan type stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes to all of the above. I love the memory card! How do I not know about this? Probably because I don't have a camera yet...

  19. I like to add Etsy giftcards because I always find cute jewelry throughout the year! Also, that memory card looks awesome, but first I need a camera :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love your list! It reminded me that I need to add a camera strap to my own list! I didn't know about that type of memory card either and I think I definitely need it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. That mug is super cute!

    I'm all for Amazon giftcards or uh, cold hard cash, because they're the most versatile! :P

    ReplyDelete
  22. that memory card is SO cool! definitely adding that to my list too!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've never heard of a memory card so awesome! I'm adding that to my list too haha.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I want the SD card and the camera strap...and a camera to go along with them :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great ideas!! I need to add to mine haha xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd love to have a cute camera strap, but my husband uses the camera for work, womp womp!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love that camera card! That would make life so simple and awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha, what a mental picture to see some grown man with a sequin and tule camera strap! What a bummer.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes, camera would be the first step! ;) Ask Santa!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Isn't it the coolest thing? It would be so convient!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think it's a great item for any blogger or photographer; such a cool invention really!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've never even thought about an Amazon gift card, but that's a great idea. Cash is always a fave too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes, you do! You just can't get as quality of a picture (even though phone cameras are getting better) from your phone, and now the card makes it possible to have them on there. So cool!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Etsy giftcards are a fantastic idea! I hadn't thought of that, but I'm constantly buying things off of there. Haha, yes a camera should probably come before the card. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha, my dad is actually the one who told me about this memory card around the beginning of the year, and I just remembered it (perfect timing if I say so myself). Maybe Santa will bring a camera this year?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great idea. I love all the different stuff Etsy has to offer; there are so many creative people out there!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I linked up. I'm so glad you agree; I hope I get it too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Isn't it darling? There were so many to choose from I had the hardest time choosing which one I like most.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Exactly, you should meet my dad and tell him! ;) I say the same thing.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Setting a limit is a great idea; we haven't done that but probably should. My brothers and I are usually pretty good and getting smaller-ish things for each other. Off to check out your blog; thanks for stopping by!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I feel the same way this year, but my parents always ask me for a "big" gift..so far I'm going with the memory card.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Agreed, my list is definitely shortening each year. I got running shoes for my birthday, so I've got that covered haha.

    ReplyDelete
  43. They'd be great for hot tea or hot chocolate too! Agreed, RIP never ending Christmas lists from when we were 7!

    ReplyDelete
  44. You are so welcome, I figure a lot of bloggers would be interested in it. It'll make things so much more convenient.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Isn't it so cool?! Some people really blow my mind with the things they can invent.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I feel the same way Jasmine. We have all of our family come to my house for Thanksgiving, so we wait until after to get our tree. But that doesn't mean there isn't Christmas decorations in my room!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Isn't it an awesome idea Tela! I'm so glad I could help you figure it out then...it'll be a well used gift I'm sure. You can't go wrong with those two stores. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I've never heard of a Better Life Bag so I'll have to check that out. For my birthday I ordered a planner from Plum Paper Designs (on Etsy) and LOVE it. You can customize it and I use it as a blogging/daily planner and it works awesome. Great ideas Sarah!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow the camera comes with the wifi feature...that's pretty awesome! Christmas presents are already in your house? I really need to get a move on.

    ReplyDelete
  50. It's genius really. A camera would be perfect for you; I can hardly imagine your recipes looking even better!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love these! I'd be so happy with a Starbucks gift card - addicted!

    I'm hosting a Nordstrom gift card giveaway on my blog - would love for you to enter! http://www.bohochiccafe.com/2014/11/17/olive-plaid-and-a-giveaway/

  52. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a wireless SD card, but that is the coolest thing ever! When I get a DSLR camera, I'm definitely going to have to get one of those SD cards.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Haha I started shopping in September, in fear that I couldn't afford everything I wanted to buy. My boyfriend even has gifts wrapped! I haven't gotten that far... lol

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow, I'm totally impressed! I have 5 birthdays between now and Christmas so I've just started getting those gifts. Then it'll be on to the Christmas gifts...yikes! I may need your help.

    ReplyDelete
  55. yes to the starbucks gift card and the mug. The SD card is neat! My digital camera connects via wi-fi to my phone and it's SO handy!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I set up the Starbucks holiday set and you better believe I bought some of those mugs and travel cups the day after! Barista perks!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love my eye-fi card and I'm in the market for a new camera strap. I love your picks and may need that polka dot strap!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lucky you, do you get a good discount? If I worked their I don't think I could resist either!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh that's awesome yours already connects. Who doesn't want another coffee mug!?

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've got that mug on my wishlist too! Starbucks mugs are the best!

    ReplyDelete
  61. So glad to hear you like it. I am seriously hoping for that this year. It seems like such a genius idea!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I already have to admit I have that mug…and a couple of others (oops). I really want a cute camera strap too, I love those that you posted!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I ended up getting one of the mugs myself, and one from my brother! Still on the search for a camera strap though. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Taylor.
