Shaina's Christmas List: Forget-Everything-Else-Because-These-Are-The-Only-Things-I-Really-Want Edition

I'm so sorry...I know I've been neglecting the blog lately. I'm not even sure why...just a combination of work being busy, and home being busy, and just generally feeling...you know, busy. But I thought I'd throw together my LAST and FINAL Christmas list.

Okay. I know, this looks ridiculous. But I have been wanting YogaToes for awhile now. Every time I wear heels or tight shoes, I daydream about how fantastic it would feel to stretch my toes out at the end of the day. And every time I get back from a run, and my feet feel all weird and crazy, I wish I had some yoga toes to stretch them out again. I have a lot of foot issues with running...my toes, my arch, my over-pronation...and I would just love to pamper my feet a little bit with these bad boys. :)


Now that I am working on becoming a serious runner, I would LOVE to have a Garmin Forerunner. This is the 405CX. It is SO COOL. Over the winter, my runs will become longer and longer, and I'm really going to need to have a good way to track everything. This is at the top of my list for Christmas/Birthday/whatever. I'm also so happy the Garmins started looking less like crazy wrist computers and more like watches. :)

I am dying, dying DYING to have a Nikon DSLR camera. There are so many, and I'm really not sure which one is best for me...but I would really love to get back into photography again, and I'm going to need a camera while Matt is gone (he'll be taking our digital camera with him). I have so many friends who have this amazing camera, and wow...the quality of the photos is amazing.
So, now that you know what I'll be asking Santa Claus for....what's on YOUR Christmas list this year?

The 405 is a definite must have! Okay, not must have, but... must lust after! We love ours! :) It really helps with training. And it's SO FUN to see a google map of your runs/bike rides/walks.

Lord, girlie, GET THE GARMIN!!!!!!!! Beg, plead, do whatever it takes, but get it. It has changed B's running life and made marathon training actually enjoyable for him. He will rave about it forever to anyone if I'd let him. I bought it for his 30th bday, and while he kept saying it was too expensive, it was the BEST gift he's ever received. Also, if you ever decide to do a marathon, the Non-Runners Guide to Marathon Training is the best book to read during it.

I got B's Garmin on Amazon for about $100 less than the Garmin store. Definitely check it out. Then you can stock up on another Wish List item!!

Hey - when I see you in December, you can play with my new Nikon & see if you like it! I have the D3000 & I LOVE it. Not to mention it's priced right for a high-quality DSLR!

Jackie said...

I'm a Canon girl, but really...any DSLR will do! They take such beautiful pics :)

I think that your gifts get substantially more pricey as you go down the list. . . I don't know why I felt like I needed to point this out- but it seemed important enough to hit the comment button. However now, I am not so sure . . . oh well.

Oooh. You want both of the things I want! I am going to get a D3000 tonight. They have them on sale at the Ritz Camera Store here in Jacksonville. I am dying for a Garmin. They sell some of the newer ones on Amazon for $100-150 a piece. I am training for a half-marathon and would LOVE one of those nifty devices for my solo runs.

Excellent choice in gifts!
