What I want for Christmas…. From your Wife/Girlfriend

Brandy Jo Blackburn shared this awesome list on December 6th, you can see the original post here:
Feel free to comment on what you would add to the list below.
Oh and be sure to share with your significant other too.

My husband declares he has no idea what to get me for Christmas….because I “haven’t given him a list”.
Wife tip…..we share a bank account. And we’re both adults with working vehicles and decision making skills. Giving you a list of what i want just adds 14 steps to me buying my own s###.
So I’m about to do every fella a favor here…..
Here’s some stuff she wants, but won’t get, or plan, for herself. You’re welcome.
1. Mani/Pedi…between diapers, laundry, kids, dishes, and work, her feet and hands are ruined possibly forever….make them soft and pretty for at least 2 weeks!
2. Massage (a professional one…not a coupon for 4 minutes of you rubbing her back through her shirt in the hopes of ultimately getting laid)

{Metro Detroit Mommy Note: I LOVE Essential Massage Therapy in Ferndale}

3. An empty house for 24-72 hours. NO LESS. but longer would be cool.
4. A planned weekend with her friends. Fancy hotel, ALL plans pre-made, kids arranged, concert/play/movie/event tickets bought.
5. A cleaning company to come and do even just ONE deep clean of the house. We know about the dust bunnies. We’ve named them. They’re not going anywhere unless we have hired help.

{Metro Detroit Mommy Note: I highly recommend Devon from RMS Services, 586-634-4976}

6. An upgrade to her engagement/wedding set. a new wrap, added stones, whatever suits her.
7. Concert tickets w backstage passes. Sitter (or lets face it, grandma) booked. Hotel overnight a bonus.
{Metro Detroit Mommy Note: Check out the great deals for Olympia Entertainment shows coming this Winter.}
8. Get her car detailed. There are more Cheerios under those car seats than aisle 7 of Walmart.
9. Facials/Massages/Hair appointments PRE-BOOKED for as many months as you can afford without getting a second mortgage. (Bonus points if you work them nicely into her schedule and make arrangements for where the kids will be…..the hair appointments I’ve canceled due to no sitter makes my hairdressers soul cry)
{Metro Detroit Mommy Note: My favorite salon is Jenny’s Salon in Madison Heights.}
10. Dish duty (laundry duty/kids bath duty/grocery duty/ meal planning duty/that thing she HATES TO DO duty) for one. whole. month. don’t just make a cute coupon, hide it in a drawer, and then weasel out of the work. STICK TO IT.
11. Gift cards for a girls night out. (Besties notified and booked!)
12. A weekend, with you, in “the big city”. Plans made. Sitters booked.
{Metro Detroit Mommy Note: Check out MotorCity Casino Hotel, they offer full spa services at the D.Tour Spa.  See our review here.} 
13. A local hotel room booked for her for a whole night (or two!)….ALONE! set up the room before she gets there. Have the hotel remove the alarm clock.

14. “That incredibly pointless but so pretty thing she drools over in a magazine but wont ever ever ever purchase, because responsibilities n shit”
15. Jewelry. duh. and so help me if you buy her something in the shape of a butterfly or heart, or that changes her finger colors, may your willie turn green out of sympathy.
16. Designate a “Moms day” for a whole year. “Sundays you leave the house, and you don’t look back, and I won’t call you when you’re 3 minutes down the road asking where we keep the milk.”
17. Think about the one thing shes vented about multiple times in the last month. Now figure out how to make it go away for at least a week.
18. Hack her Pinterest. There’s your list.
{Metro Detroit Mommy Note: or if you know here username, you don’t have to hack it.. I even have a board: “Wish List” hmmmm…}  
There. Now go. Don’t tell her where you got the idea.
Since this is being shared like crazy, why not do some good with it?! SHAMELESS PLUG TIME!
Want to help deserving Veterans meet their celebrity heroes?
My friend Bowser (a Viral Phenom…you know him as “the guy wearing the pug tshirt, sitting with the pug wearing a guy tshirt”!!) runs an NPO that does just that!
Check them out and help a vet!
