my true nature...

i know that i have been very serious in my blogging as of late. so serious that perhaps i have fooled you all into thinking that i am some kind of serious philosophical selfless being.

well, i haven't fooled those friends that know me really well. and those of you who have been deceived... this blog post will clear all that up really quickly. because frankly i am a person who at her core wants things to be given to her... and by "things" i mean gifts. i am all about the gifts.

my love language is gifts (and words of affirmation) but mostly gifts.

the most important question you can be asking yourself right now isn't, " who am i going to vote for in the upcoming november election?" nope, the most important question that should haunt you by day and disturb your dreams by night is, "what am i going to procure for lea's upcoming october birthday?"

so here is a list of my favorite things that i don't own yet (all from my "items to procure" board on pinterest. and by "items to procure" i mean "items other people need to procure for me".) oprah had her list of her favorite things that she owned and loved that she gave out to everyone to share the wealth. mine is a slightly different list. things i would LOVE to own that i want other people to give to me. turns out my list is not quite as magnanimous as oprah's. then again, my bank account is not quite as magnificent as oprah's.

so let's get started. rev up your visa cards (and because i am a "giving" person, if you click on each item's photo it will take you to the actual website where you can procure said item. too good of me. too easy for you.)...

i bet it is a bit pricey. but who wouldn't want a post it note coffee table? can't actually find the place to order this. so you are off the hook for giving this to me... this year.
