Dear Santa (My almost Impossible Wish List)

"All I want is what I... I have coming to me. All I want is my fair share.
~ Sally Brown

Dear Santa,

It's been a while.  The last time I wrote to you,  I asked for a Holly Hobbie Easy Bake Oven.  

Which, I actually got.  Thanks :)

But now I'm an adult and I'll be damned if I'm going to ask for something like an oven...someone may expect me to use it.  

Anyway - now that I know you make good on your word.  I thought I'd put together a little list.  Just in case you're wondering what a busy working mom wants.  I've given this list great consideration.  These aren't your run of the mill items like a pair of slippers or earrings.  These can't be found at your local Lord & Taylor or Target.  These are custom made gifts that only Santa Claus can provide.

  • The perfect pair of jeans:  Kind of like those Traveling Pants jeans but they are just for me. Dark denim, only.  3 pairs: skinny, modern trouser & bootcut - I like variety. I want jeans that are perfect; they will always fit, even after a weekend of eating cake and fried chicken.  I can go out to eat in them and not need to unbutton after I'm done with my meal.  AND - I want them right at the waist - I am too old to do crack.  Especially while at the playground.  (bonus: If I can wear my highest heels or flattest flats - the length will always be right.) 
  • Speaking of high heels:  I want a pair of sexy high heel shoes and/or boots that I can parade around all day long in and still dance in all night (because you know, I go out dancing all the time).  And I want them to feel as warm and cozy comfortable as a pair of Uggs.  No color preference. Surprise me! 
  • A Magic Washer/Dryer:  The washer will be able to wash all different clothes at once without any damage.  All stains come out - without some kind of extra spray.  And I want a dryer that dries clothes without a single wrinkle.  Collars - no problem?  Pant pleats - of course.  A pleated skirt - that's the specialty!  And wouldn't it be fantastic, if all the socks came out perfectly matched.  
  • My Waist: From 1999 - I was 24.  I don't think further explanation is necessary.  Though, I guess, I could work on this myself if I absolutely had to.  
  • No Maintenance Eyebrows:  I've been plucking, waxing, tweezing those bad boys for almost 2 decades - I'm tired.  I just want thick, clean, perfectly arched brows with absolutely no maintenance.  No wax, no tweezers, no brow powder to fill in the gaps.     
  • An Answered Question:  I want to come home from work and ask The Boy about his day.  And I'd like him to answer.  This is the one thing that seems the most attainable.  I know this will eventually happen, I'm just not sure when.  I'm not sure if you could help out with this - but it's worth a shot.  I wouldn't need anything else ever if you could make this happen sooner rather than later.      

I realize some of things may be out of the realm of possibility - especially the first 3.  So if any of these items puzzle you - ask Mrs. Claus.  I am sure she'll know what to do.  

Thanks Big Guy...
