Christmas List

Once you get to a certain age (it would seem), you really struggle to find things for a 'list' which my sister requires EVERY year...I mean come on, we're adults...if we want something we generally will just buy it ourselves.  But to make her happy I came up with a few things...

I couldn't help it...I figured she laughed really hard when she saw this on there (but I also know she looooves to spend a lot of money and make everyone happy, and it couldnt hurt to ask)

For some reason I crave coffee a lot now, and having a one cupper at the house would be fab.  This Mr Coffee model (Keurig) is cost effective too


My favorite running shirt by Lululemon (Run Swiftly) in either long sleeve or short sleeve AND in the new color Paris Pink

Lots of gift cards please!  Visa, MC or Amex thank you very much.  Cash is king!
 Additionally, there were 2 other tops I wanted and sent her info on, but neither of them have images online anymore as they were limited edition shirts (one was the Lululemon Manifesto in purple and the other is a Houston Texans shirt that was put out by Pink by Victorias Secret).  I know I am not going to get that one though because she called me freaking out because she couldnt find it and wanted me to see if I could find it online (I couldn't; the one I saw was in the store when I was out Christmas Shopping and evidently they sold out in no time at all)...I did find a replacement one though so we'll see... :O)

Every year I try and try and try to get my family to go along with adopting a family in need and putting the $$ we spend on gifts for each other towards giving a Christmas to a family that goes without.  My niece would totally do it, but my sister and nephew...we'll they still have way too much commercialism in them...

And this year, yet again, my sister hogs all the ideas from everyone, not sharing with anyone, therefore most everyone is getting gift cards from me.  Granted I did go out of my way to personalize them based on their likes and interests, but still.

So.  What's the top thing on your list?

I like your list. The lulu shirt is so pretty. I want some stuff from there too. And gift cards. Yes please! I'd rather have gift cards because I'm too damn picky about everything and would rather get something I need/want/can use as opposed to the effffn popcorn and cookies my aunt still sends me. Its the thought that counts right? Ha!

I think I'll make a list now too. :)

One thing I left off...for the person(s) at ROWAN COMPANIES TO QUIT READING MY BLOG. I've asked nicely many times...

So Sam, if you and/or you FAGF wouldn't mind...that'd be great.

Same issue. If I want it and its affordable, I probably already bought it. That leaves things that are super expensive... And gift cards. Bring on the giftcards!!! Or running shoes, can you ever have enough???
