All I want for Christmas

Parisienne's my-eyes-are-bigger-than-my-budget fantasy Christmas list:

- Chocolate from La Maison du Chocolate, my favorite Parisienne chocolaterie (though there's some tough competition)

- A cashmere sweater from Eric Bompard

- A sexy nursing nightgown (yes, they do exist!) from mamanana.com (I've got it in burgundy, but I'd like it in black)

- A weekend for two in the medieval garden inn at the Prieuré d'Orsan

- A New Year's feast at the three-star Les Près d'Eugénie

Parisienne's fantasy Christmas list for le Petit:

- Some sort of babywearing poncho like this one, but in a better color.

- A German-made wooden farm. Okay, he's a bit little for it still, but we'll play with it in the meantime.

- Kites. We've got to take this kid out to fly a kite. So he doesn't have the coordination and his attention span may still a bit short, and at just over six kilograms, he couldn't hold onto the string in a strong gale. But I know he'd be utterly fascinated with the bright colors.

I see we have similar tastes! I have this awesome poncho from Eric Bompard that I wore pretty much everyday while I was pregnant.

And I have the nightgown too ... In pink! Also, I love the Japanese Weekend PJs.

And...We almost went to the Pres d'Eugenie last christmas (we were visiting my in-laws close to Lourdes so not too far) but ended up in Biarritz instead for our "babymoon." I was sold on the amazing spa :-)

Wow! You have inspired my own fantasy list. I want to have a candelight dinner in the desert. I'm thinking Morocco.

@MIF - Isn't Mamanana great? I have a lot of stuff from there that I'll wear long after I've stopped nursing. The nightgown is great because it manages to be both sexy and sooo comfy. I don't have any Japanese Weekend stuff, but I think I'll splurge for a second pregnancy.

My husband took me to the Pres d'Eugenie for our five year anniversary last year, and it was unforgettable. I would go back in a heartbeat. However, we thought the hotel accommodations were too expensive for what they were -- best to stay elsewhere and just indulge at the restaurant.

@Steph - Candlelight dinner in the desert, I could go for that, too! Especially since it's suddenly turned FREEZING here in Paris. Or a cruise in the Greek isles? What I'll get is a noisy family dinner with my crazy French extended family. Not romantic, but I love it anyway.

I've actually been fantasizing about a cruise along the coast of Turkey on one of those smaller yachts. Mmmm ... someday. I am having dinner with my crazy Pennsylvania family. Large groups of family members always makes for an interesting day!
