7 Quick Takes: My Christmas Wishlist

7 Quick Takes

Linking up with Mary Kate as well for her gift-giving link-up.

Gift cards from Barnes & Noble. I have a NOOK. I like to read. Enough said. 🙂 I’m also having to replace books which were damaged while they were being stored and it makes more sense to get them on my NOOK.

Gift cards for Kohl’s. I’m slowly having to replace out my wardrobe and I’m fond of the stuff at Kohl’s. I can try stuff on in-store and I’ve actually found clothes that I would wear when I’ve shopped there.

Peace on earth. A girl can dream, right?

A Kiva loan. Kiva loans allow you to loan money to entrepreneurs all over the world to help them become self-sufficient. I’ve made 17 loans and only $200 has been my own funds or new loans that people have given me as present. This means that those funds have been loaned out several times over and it’s honestly the highlight of my month to get an email saying that I have Kiva credit. I’ve made loans to 12 different countries on 3 continents and 16 of those 17 loans has been paid back or is in the process of being paid back. (One person did default and unfortunately that does happen on occasion.)

A Target gift card. Daniel needs some long-sleeved shirts and I’m a fan of Target’s clothes on him. I love the Circo and Cherokee brands and I find that they hold up to lots of abuse.

For Daniel to develop speech. He’s making so much progress right now in that area but it’s hard to be patient sometimes. I did get to see him say the letters in his name when I was dropping him off at school on Tuesday. When his ABA tutors have been working with him, they make him sound out words.

For Brett and Iris to have families adopt them. Do you see these lovely children?

L-R: Brett and Iris

Brett still needs a mama. Iris finally has a family committed to her and their dossier has been submitted to her country.

  1. Shared #6 with Dean, and his edited response (and I feel the same way) is “That’s f’ing awesome news!” This must make you so happy, as it made both of us do a happy dance.

  2. Kohls, Target, and Nook (though I have a Kindle, but some idea) – it is a shame we don’t live close by one another :(.

    I’ve been praying for Daniel ever since you asked me to for the marathon, I was so excited to read #6 and will continue praying!
