I don't know about you, but I have the HARDEST time coming up with things I want. I can always find things that I like, but when I get to thinking about things that I really want as a gift. I'm clueless. I have to think. Hard. For days. It's almost like I'm thinking to myself:
I really want that, but I don't have the money to buy something that is of no use other than to be pretty in my house. And if I don't have the money, then why should I ask you to get it for me for Christmas?Do you ever think that way? Gets me every time. Then, the other thing I think about is:
If I really want something it would be a Lowe's gift card so I can try and get some more projects accomplished around the house. But gift cards are so impersonal.So, once again. I am left with the question: What do I want for Christmas?
This year I've tried to make it a little easier. Over the past few weeks I've been thinking about items that I want/need. No guess work. Makes for a very happy husband and an even happier wife. :) No arguments or drama this Christmas folks!
A kitchen trashcan. I know, classy right? We put it on our wedding registry and never got it, so I'm putting it on my Christmas list instead. We need a new one. B.A.D. The one we are using now is from when John and I were at WCU. It has lived a long (and beer filled) life in Harrill dorm, the big house on the hill, our apartment, and now our house. It's time. to. go.
So here is our lovely:
Some fiberglass plant urns for our front porch. I need some yard decorations badly. John is not one to get out there and do more than the necessary amount of yard work. So it's up to me to make it pretty. And I think these will do quite nicely flanking our front door. Maybe some beautiful ferns in the spring/summer? I can think of many possibilities. What do you think?
I reallyreallyreallyprettypleasewithacherryontop want one of these:
Aaaah. A way to keep all my music in one place. No more CD's flying around my car as I take turns and they come whipping out of the visor holder! No more digging, stretching into the back seat or fumbling around. No more, no more, no more!
