Not asking for much am I?? OK seriously folks when I start my Christmas baking I probably make 12-15 types of cookies and squares and I still use an antique mixer ( and I can say this honestly because I saw the same mixer in an antique store in September, remember that story?) And while we are on the topic of need I really could need a new stainless steel oven and fridge… OK maybe that’s not a need but it is a want. My kitchen could use a bit of a steel spruce up.
OK, I know that may seem a little excessive but on a more realistic note I do need the Red Keurig, I have the black/steel one but this red baby would go so very,very nicely on my cupboard and then of course it needs the matching blender right?? and then truly what self respecting lover of holidays doesn’t need a Marguerita machine??? Well I know I do.. and my holiday party and all the guests would be much appreciative.
I know, I know it is supposed to be that time of year we think of others and I really should focus more on Kent’s needs not my own all the time but dang he is a tough one, to quote him directly ” I don’t need anything, I have everything I need” Seriously what on the heck are you supposed to do about that?? Every year I search high and low, not for something he thinks he wants or needs but for that something special that will make him just go WOW. Last year we said no gifts and instead gave each other tickets to the Autozone Liberty Bowl in Memphis with a shopping trip on the way back ( now that was awesome) This year we are heading to Charlotte and the Belk Bowl but we are allowed to spend some money on each other, so back to the drawing board for me, what can I get that would be special?? Well I think I found it, Truly I mean it, I really do think I found it, have you heard of Man Crates? Their Motto is:
We say ‘no’ to ugly neckties, cologne samplers and executive trinkets. We don’t save wrapping paper, we don’t do ribbons.
