An appeal to Santa


Dear Santa,

I just wanted to let you know that I've changed my mind about something. Remember back when I said some things about leather not being compatible with motherhood? A long, long time ago? Well, my kids are much more clean now. I've stopped using my purse as a garbage bag for all the treats my kids get at the store and in public as I bribe them to stay happy for just 10 more minutes. And I'll be honest- I know I blame it on the kids because I can, but I'll try not to leave my bag laying around just anywhere. I won't put it on the car floor while kids walk on it with slushy shoes; I'll not carry a spill-proof sippy cup in my bag because somehow, some way those darn things always manage to leak. In other words, Santa, I'll protect this bag or this bag (might be asking much) with my life. And the watch...it's smart woman's jewelry. A decorative piece and a time-piece all in one! I've always been practical like that. How often does Fossil have sales on bags? (never) How often do they have sales on beautiful watches? (rarely) It's up to you, but this could be a good investment. I know I've been good.

A Believer always,
CC

P.S. I guess the watch is optional.

Cute bags and watch!!! I KNOW you've been good enough to get at least one, but why not all?!? It just might happen! Good luck!

stephanie said...

hmm maybe that is my problem. I haven't been writing to santa

I love my Fossil purse - which was incidentally less than either of those two specimens! But that watch - VERY cool... hmmm, maybe I need to be dropping hints to hubby again, after all - my birthday isn't TOO far off right?

OOOOOH! I love the Red bag and the watch (that's a good sale price). I hope you get what you want this year. If I were you, I would sit on his lap myself AND send the letter so you make sure your on the nice list!

Santa says you can't get all three,
So let's just see which one it might be!

Subtle, Cocoa. Very subtle. =)

Rut has just been waiting to intercept a letter to Santa like that one. But maybe you can just send Di to Chinatown and get you a knockoff for quite a bit less? Then you won't feel nearly so bad when the sippy cup spills and the dum dum sticks--because we all know that is what really will go in that purse!
(hasn't that watch been on your list awhile?)

Erin: I found your blog on Liz's. I love the subtle way of telling Santa what you want. Super cute! I'll have to remember that!

LC said...

Could you get one for your birthday and one for Christmas? or What if the watch were inside the purse? would that still count as one gift?
ha ha. fun post!

Der and I chuckled at your not so subtle hints for Santa. It's a good thing he reads your blog!
