Wish List

Dear Santa,

I'm fairly certain, even with the occasional naughty moment, I've made the "nice" list this year.
Since I don't have my helper elves (a.k.a. Christa and Jenny) this year to help the hubster shop for me, I thought I'd best send word to you personally.

I would like:

A pair of snowshoes - because I really need to start being more active in the winter. These updated ones look a little easier to handle than the wooden ones with the tail on the end whose only purpose seems to be tangling up my feet and landing me in the snowbank.

A long black trench coat - a down-filled one that comes all the way down to my knees! I understand this type of coats puts me at risk of looking like a big giant puff-a-lump. I am willing to take that risk for the sake of staying warm and toasty.

Flannel sheets for our bed - I like the printed ones like these with snowflakes or pinecones or plaids. Again, I'm thinking about my warmth and comfort since I'm not a huge fan of winter (no offense to you and your choice to reside in the north pole).

Scrapbooking paper like the kinds shown HERE, printed on recycled kraft paper. I love the look of kraft paper right now for my albums and I'm ALL OUT! That's a shame, Santa, you really should help me re-stock.
True Blood DVD in Season 1 to start. Because I hear it's awesome. Because I don't have HBO. And because I feel the need to satisfy my thirst (get it! I hope you have a sense of humour, Santa!) for all things vampire.
And last but not least - a purse! The teal/greenish one I found one at Avon a few campaigns back. I'm hoping you may have read my mind and ordered from our local representative already because it's no longer showing as available on the website. I understand I may have gone a little overboard with the purses last year when I asked for FIVE. I hope you'll forgive my obsession and allow me just this one...pretty pleeeease!

Oh, and how could I forget!!!
Chocolates!! Lots of them. Fill my stocking full, if you wouldn't mind. Pot of Gold. Cherry Blossoms. Ferrero Rochers. Macaroons and Rosebuds. Terry's get the picture, Santa. I'm sure you're quite experienced in this sort of thing.
I hope asking for all those sweets doesn't put me on the naughty list!
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Myrna Hynes
P.S. Would you mind helping people remember that it's okay to say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hanukkah" or whatever specific occasion they may celebrate? and not just "Happy Holidays" all the time? - that's just getting aggravating!

Amen on the Merry Christmas and I hope you were a good girl so Santa gives you everything on your wishlist :)

You're too funny Myrna...I miss you! Not that I've spent 'that' much time with you over the past, ummm, 10 years of our lives - but I miss you. You're so much fun to be around. You're full of life...and I need a little of that lately!!! Thanks for making me feel all warm and happy while reading yoru made my day! Hugs,
