Dear Santa,

I've been a very good girl this year.

Many people bombard you year after year with ridiculous requests for Christmas.


I'm so sorry for their greed.


My list is short. I'm sure you'll agree.


Not only is my list short but it's also very practical. It's a practical list with items that are necessary for any mom to be a GOOD mom.


So, without further ado, here is my *short* list.....

1) These boots are certainly *necessary*. I live in MI. MI is cold. My feet need to stay warm to maintain my health. I need my health to be a good mom. UGGs are necessary.



2) I've had my eyes on these for awhile now.....please remember that the cost only reflects their superior comfort....Cole Haan is a master in the art of foot comfort and deserves to be rewarded.....comfort is a *necessity* for any successful mother....you know....with all the running around I do for them.....

They also come in black. I'm not choosy....surprise me....



3) I've been pining for this item below since last May. Remember this post? I'm still trying to come up with a believable "it's a necessity" argument. I'll have to get back to you on this one....but trust me....it's *necessary*.....


3) And a watch (such as one of the two below) is necessary for a busy mom like myself to keep track of time. I'm sure you'll agree that this is more a *necessity* than a *want*. And please pay no attention to the price tag as the cost only reflects it's high quality craftsmanship and reliability. Which, again, is *necessary*.




4) Now this....this fine item below with all its sparkley bedazzlement is a *want*....definitately a want..... but, in keeping with the *necessary* theory..... it's *necessary* for a mom to get an occassional *want* so that said mom can be a happy smiley mom....no?




5) Gift certificates are good too. I'm not one to scoff at a gift certificate as a cop out gift. I know you're a busy man. Any gift certificate will do.....but a gift certificate to......




So that I may pay this man a visit.....





So that he may transform my body from this.....



To this.....




Would leave me forever grateful.....ummmm.....and healthier.....yes, definitely healthier. Because we all know that less body fat = more energy = healthy = ......nec-ess-ary!

6) Or how about a family trip to Italy. It's so very important and *necessary* to teach our children the art and culture of our heritage.


7) Looking for a stocking stuffer idea? How about this?.....



With a little of this......




Please keep in mind, Santa, that cost is relative. My list is really quite practical. While others are asking for world peace and an end to world hunger....yeah right, like you could ever afford THAT tall order.....I'm merely asking for several *small* items. Items that you'll no doubt agree are *necessary* for me to be a good mother.


Um, yeah, about that Kindle....also very *necessary*...reading is educational....moms need to be educated....therefore....Kindle = *necessary*!

I love that Kindle. I want it, too, even though I'm not at all materialistic.

PS- I live in the town of the HQ of C-H. I am invited to their yearly friends sale. Come visit in Feb. The deals will make you cry.

Kate @ Life As I Live It said...

You're so funny! I love your stocking stuffer. Of course, mine would be red. :)

Leslie said...

rofl, love the stocking stuffer. Can I come over and play when you move in?? And yup, count me in too. I want a kindle. But I was wondering if I bought one, would they rule those out next year, and start making better faster models, would the old ones become extinct and not worth anything? I don't know. Love your list!

Kelly said...

JESUS MARY JOSEPH WOMAN!!!! This is exactly why I love you because you are such a simple girl. ROFL

I want Santa to paint my bedroom and make it sexy!!!!!! That is all I ask for.

Dan's got it going on but I think these things may even break him. LOL

Kristin H. said...

If you get the plastic surgery you will have to post an entire series of pictures and details letting us in on the process. Because I'm just that kind of nosey.

Tracey said...

Ok spill the beans...where did you see those clog like shoes. I want a pair too!!!

Ashley said...

Maybe 'Santa' will read this and at least get you a few of these items. I think you may be out of luck on that house, though. Haha!

jodieboedie said...

I think if we all go together and ask for one collective gift from the man in red, we may just get that stocking stuffer!!! It's certainly big enough for everyone and we'd never run into each other on accident ;-)

I want the black shoes!!!

Lisa - I'm so jealous.

Kate - I dont care what color it comes in...I'd take purple even...

Leslie - there are already rumors that a new and improved model is coming out...so I'm tempted to wait and look into it again for maybe my birthday cause then I'll bet I could find the "old model" for a fraction of the price.

Kelly - That's why this list is for SANTA! NOT Dan! And who are you kidding....I know the first thing on your list is a POLE for your bedroom....paint....psh (insert eye roll)!

Kristin - If I ever get cosmetic surgery AND come out looking like Halle Berry I will proudly post LOTS of "after" photos.

Tracey - I saw them at Bloomingdales when I was in Chicago. I know Nordstrom and Macy's carries Cole Haan but they're quite pricey.

Ashley - Yeah, I know.

Jodie - That's what I told my family. I'm trying to talk all my immediate family members into going in on it but no-one is biting.

Kori said...

Add me to your list, okay? Not that you want ME for Christmas, mind you, but that you want Santa to get just a few of those trifels for me as well.

Dana said...

LOVE IT!!!!! great list.... i too want a better body and new Uggs...

Kelly said...

Good luck on the gifts - Kelly is getting a diet coke (large if she's good)

Love Randy

Angela said...

Hi! I just stumbled across your blog and I totally love it! You are a great writer -- and very creative! I am totally with you on the whole I need to go to Italy because it's educational thing. If you don't mind, I'd like to add you to my blog roll. Leave me a comment if that's okay. I'll definitely be stopping by again :)

B Boys Mom said...

Dear Santa,

I also need one of each on the list. So make two.

Love it.

Brooke said...

I think you stole my christmas wish list! I love the sparkly one!

Breanne said...

I am with you on the ugg boots. Love that style.

Mama Zen said...

Those Cole Haan's are to die for!

Jannie Funster said...

Whoa - I'll take that kitchen!

I saw those boots, or ones that looked similar, they seem all wind-provoking, all holey and such. Not real warm?

I'll take the bracelet too, thanks.

A watch not so much, I use my cellphone to tell time.
