Dear Santa

Christmas changes once you have kids. Suddenly, it's not about you anymore. Not even a little bit. My husband and I have decided not to exchange gifts in the interest of spending more on the kids and when other people ask what I want I find myself saying things like, "just shop for the kids".

I'm OK with this. 100%

As a matter of fact, I spend most of my time perusing the Internet looking for things that I think the kids would want instead of for myself because shopping for kids, especially a toddler who is just starting to grasp the idea of Christmas, is a blast. (Toys are so much cooler now a days)  I fully believe in spoiling the crap out of my kids each year.

But let's face it, Mama could use a little pampering too sometimes.

So Santa, if you are listening, here is my wish list...

1.) A Silhouette Cameo.
I want need this machine. Ahh the things I could do with it-including all the things I've found on Pinterest that require it. Plus?? I have a little dream of opening up an Etsy shop featuring artwork and crafts with quotes on them and this little machine could make that dream a reality. I've been saving my pennies Santa, but I could really use your help.

2.) Zumba Classes
I am fortunate to have deflated quite a bit since Nolan was born, but the key is to keep it off now.

3.) A Housekeeper
Because any extra time I have these days is devoted to sleeping, eating, or showering and my baseboards (&everything else) are feeling neglected...

4.) A new hairdryer
My current one tries to eat my hair and I have been too lazy to buy a new one. If you wanted to throw in a new flat iron too, I'd be down with that.

7.) A new house
This is a WISH list right??

Also, I would like to ask that you stuff my stocking with only Hershey's Mint Chocolate Truffle Kisses. They are only around this time of year and I LOVES them. (Now you see why I need the Zumba classes??)

What do you want for Christmas???

One more thing I want- make my holidays extra jolly and "Like" me on Facebook.
