My birthday is November 24th, one month before Christmas. So, for all of you lovelies (ahem: mom, dad, Jonathan… do I have your attention?) that want to get me something, here is my wish list!
This year we are going to Vegas as a triple celebration – Jonathan’s 21st, my 24th, Dad’s 32nd birthday (ha!), and Mom just loves Vegas. So I don’t expect any birthday gifts (aside from delicious buffet meals in Vegas and having a roof over my head), but these are all things that I need (ok, I don’t need another bottle of perfume) and would LOVE to open up on Christmas Morning.
I need a rice cooker and vegetable steamer. My epic adventures (read: failures) with cooking greens could be completely resolved with this kitchen appliance. Also, this will save me from having to buy rice from the Chinese restraurant down the street. Rice just never turns out as good when cooked on the stove top. And my kitchen has a red theme. This will match perfectly.
I also need a salad spinner (ref. above epic adventures with greens). I think this will be far easier than me shaking off Kale in the sink. Once we start getting a lot of lettuce in the farm share, a salad spinner will certainly come in handy.
I have an obsession with perfume. I love this Fendi perfume – it’s a little dark, a little musky, and really good for a night out on the town.
Gift cards are always a safe bet to get me.. here are some ones that I wouldn’t mind seeing stuffed in my stocking!
Now that I have my new Ipod Shuffle, I want to be able to buy music to put on it. But, I am too cheap to pay 99 cents per item for said music. So, an Itunes gift card would be great!!!
I love getting a good and healthy fast food breakfast on the way to work. My two favorite options: Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts
And I sort of also want a Tofu press. I want to start incorporating Tofu more in to my diet – but it is hard to cook unless prepared properly. Since I am grossed out by the thought of pressing my tofu with a kitchen towel or paper towels (fibers, gross!), this will come in handy. I can also use it to get water out of spinach and other veggies!!
There you have it, Santa (ahem: mom, dad). This is what I want for Christmas. And if
I get impatient and buy these before Christmas a little elf borrows my credit card and buys any of these things before Christmas, I will be sure to let you know 🙂
10.27.2011 – an update. I have been looking for one of these GPS watches at a reasonable price point. I want one!
Heart rate. Distance. Time. That’s all I need!
