My new Starbucks Jonathan Adler ceramic mug with lid. Made getting up this morning that much easier.
Seasonal flavored creamers.
My new mousepad/notepad. The one in the picture has an M, but mine has a K with a print of a koala wearing a crown. It's great.
The hand-illustrated Christmas cards I ordered from the greatest place called Rifle Paper Co. Their hand-done illustrations are great and they even do custom ones! Check it out.
Shopping online for Christmas presents. I've never been much of an online shopper, but wow, it makes it so much easier. And the shipping fees don't really bother me much if I can get all my Christmas shopping done at once without even leaving my chair.

Listening to Sufjans Stevens Songs for Christmas. This is my favorite CD ever, no matter what season it is. Slightly eclectic christmas music that also has beautiful hymns, including my favorite, "Come Thou Fount". This is one of the songs we sang at my baptism :)
Treehouses. The inner child in me wants to live in a modern treehouse someday. How peaceful and beautiful it would be to live in the trees with all the wonderful natural wood. Mmm. I like this one.
