Holiday Fantasy Wish List

This Holiday Season I do not have a long "for real" wish list. We are doing home add ons and renovations so we are focusing on that and traveling, instead of getting tons of mindless gifts that we do not need. However , I was thinking of all the things that would make me incredibly happy this year (besides the obvious--world peace, cure for all fatal diseases, health, happiness Gary Gulman etc) . I have compiled a list of stuff that may or may not ever happen--hence at this point it is all fantasy. Here are a few items on my fantasy list-
First off-- I would LOVE if Tom Ford/Estee Lauder would make the fragrance of the Azuree Oil into a Parfum. It is beautiful and fresh and I would buy it by the bucket. On this same subject, I also pray for the day that the Aedes De Venustas home fragrance line becomes a Perfume, EDT, lotion and soap line too. Have you tried the Aedes scent by la Artisan? It is beyond beautiful. Find it at
I wish the first 2 seasons of Anthony Bourdain No Reservations ( plus bloopers and out takes) would come out on DVD. I love Anthony, and I love his show! I would bet some of the stuff behind the scenes is hilarious! EDITED TO ADD--All new shows start on New Years Day of Anthony Bourdain No Reservations. Watch it. Anthony will smoke--you will laugh. Anthony will eat--you will laugh. Anthony will travel to some unexpected place in the world--you will laugh, but probably learn something too. Check it out on The Travel Channel.
I want a butt like Jessica Biel. I am doing squats as I type this. DAYUM!
I want a rhinoplasty a la Ashlee Simpson. Great improvement. Yes, I have secretly wanted rhinoplasty for about 10 years now. Ashlee looks great, and her rhinoplasty really made a difference.


Lastly, I REALLY wish Subway would get a drive through. I thought all my fantasies were answered when Starbucks went drive through, but no I am never satisfied--I always want more. There are so many days I would totally eat at Subway, but I am too lazy to park and go in. So are you listening Subway? Start making drive throughs!!!

What are some of your fantasy holiday wishes?--keep it clean ha.

Have a wonderful day!

WORD UP Gretchen! Annie (at Blogdorf) adores Chipotle too. Maybe we can start a blog petition?

When are you headed to Chicago?

Have a great day!

Some Subways DO have a drive-thru. I practically lived on Subway during my gestational-diabetic pregnancy because I could get lo-carb wraps there.

Good times.

Rhinoplasty? YOU? Seriously, your face is pretty damn near perfect. I can't even remember your nose, which means it probably already looks like Ashley's.

Me, all I want for Xmas is sleep.

I agree. I want a drive-thru at Subway or Quiznos...bad. I hope you get everything on your wishlist except the rhinoplasty. You do no need it. You do not want to suffer from post-nasal drip like Roseanne or one nostril smaller than the other like Tori Spelling. But bless your heart for thinking Ashlee's is an improvement. I think she looks really good, too.

*Hi K--
So lemme get this have SONIC AND DRIVE THROUGH SUBWAYS? And long legs and great intelligence.....oh the injustice of it all!!!!
Thanks for the kind words....but yes I have a honker.

Sending you wishes for blissful, peaceful sleep.

Oh yes, Quiznos has such good stuff. I love their salads. Bless my heart for thinking Ashlee looks good! HA. The post op pics of her in Chicago (the musical) in London were beautiful. And I really do not like her one bit.

Hi ParisJasmal - thanks for sharing your fantasies.

I've often wished for a drive-thru at Subway myself - a drive-thru at Boston Market would be nice, too.

Did I hear that "No Reservations" starts up a new season in January. I hope so - I need some more Anthony Bourdain. Personally, I wish they would release "30 Something" on DVD - I loved that show.

As for Ashlee Simpson (RANT STARTS HERE)- what the hell is she doing in 'Chicago' anyway? The part of Roxie Hart is written for a middle-aged (or near middle-aged) woman - even Renee Zellwegger was a little on the young side. How does Ashlee Simpson get away with the line "I'm older than I ever intended to be." What is she, 22?

You do not need a nose job silly, you are beautiful! My fantasy wish would be cooler weather in Phoenix, maybe rain more than once every three months. A way to make Starbucks be low cal, low fat and still taste good (not diggin their lite versions.) MN Vikings would win the Superbowl:) and my figure would magically tranform to match scarlett johansson!

I would like to put in dri ve-thru's at Chipotle, Subway, and Quizno's for all you wonderful people but lets not forget about us disabled people who can not drive. I would add delivery service, especially to Subway:)

Another fantasy is to have a sensitive permanent dye for the lashes so it would not have to be redone as often!

I will be in Chicago the 14th-16th! I am saving my pennies for my solo shopping on the 14th while my husband is in his meetings.

From your photos, you do not need are gorgeous!

Stay looks as though it's about to get pretty winter-y in the next few days!!

Hi Joni-
I am glad you opened the window back up. RIP R. A.
You are correct about our secret boyfriend Mr. Bourdain. New shows starting New Years Day. Hooray!
Speaking of 30 Something--have you seen the show Brothers and Sisters with Calista Flockhart? Well one of the stars of 30 Something is in that show. Very good show.

I know ...I know...I know about Ashlee in Chicago. It is so sad how shows put ANYONE in whom they think will sell more tickets. Just like Drew Lachey as Roger in Rent--WHAT THE HELL? I would have never paid to see Ashlee in Chicago but her pics on the cover of US WEEKLY were beautiful, and I will pay 3 dollars for US WEEKLY cause I am classy like that and that's how I roll.
Lovely day to you dearest Joni.

*Hi Nicky-
Thanks for stopping by. And Thanks for the kind words.
I am loving all your Holiday shopping ideas on Swish Style!
I totally agree with you on the Starbucks lite stuff. I have tried to like it because I try to keep my sugar intake under control, but the lite stuff does not even hold a candle to the regular fatty, sugary and topped with whipped cream stuff! YUM!
GO VIKINGS --and YES Scarlet Johansson--what a bod and I would not mind having her lips either!

I will drink a raspberry mocha with lots of whipped cream in your honor today!

*Dearest Thumpermoo,

Awesome fantasy to have any restaurant of our choice to deliver--and for the price to be reasonable. I know you would have some Chick fil a brought to the crib! Oh how I miss Chick fil A. That last time I had Chick Fil A was with you in Denton many moons ago. No Chick FA here in the Mid West.
And yes...the perm eyelash tint would be fabulous.
Lovely day Thumpermoo!

I would love to *see* a Chipotle! LOL I keep hearing about that place.

I think I would like to move in to a Sephora. I'll keep my fantasy list short and sweet and maybe it will come true! *oh please oh please oh please* :)

Oh my Jen--you have never even seen a Chipotle? Maybe that is better as their food is loaded with calories and carbohydrates, but it is sooo delicious.

I could not live at Sephora because their lighting is WAY TOO BRIGHT. One time I fainted at Sephora--I had a show that night so I was already stressed, but the lights were so bright and hot I just fell plum over. HUMILIATION!

Have a great day!
