I hate that question.
Because I never know what I want.
The big things I really wanted this year were a Garmin and a subscription to Runner’s World.
I bought my Garmin myself because I couldn’t wait til Christmas. My Nana got me a subscription to Runner’s World as an early Christmas present!
So, recently, I have been asked many times by friends what I want for Christmas.
“What do you want for Christmas?”
“Hmm…well, i don’t really know. I kinda already have everything I want.”
Yesterday I went to Target.
Target is amazing. Target is like the BEST PLACE IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD. And Target has stuff I want.
Every stinkin’ time I walked past the athletics section I was like, “I want…”
Yea, my issue is that I don’t really like to spend all that much money on myself. it makes me feel selfish. I have no issue buying expensive things for other people though. Like, once upon a time, I wanted this really expensive brand of mascara (ok, i know that’s lame, but this is a true story) but I didn’t want to buy it for myself cause it was EXPENSIVE. So I got it for a friend for her birthday instead. 🙂 Whatever.
I am not dead cause I didn’t get that mascara and my friend is happy cause she got awesome mascara from me! So I guess everything worked out!! 🙂
Ok, so back to my point, which is that there’s all this awesome running stuff at Target and I want it ALL!!! But it’s all super duper expensive. And, i went to MC Sports to get new running shoes. I had to walk right past the women’s running clothes. *drool* Ugh. I want it all. On Friday, I’m going shopping with some friends, like Christmas shopping. BUT, clever me has already been stockpiling some presents for people so I only have to buy a million presents instead of a million and 5. Woot. My hopes are that I will be able to buy something for myself also cause when things I want are on insane sales I will go buy it! 🙂 We’ll see. Although I probably shouldn’t buy stuff for myself because then no one else will know what to buy for me.
See, I am one of those people who has money and a job that supplies me with money every week. So if I want (or need) something, i go and buy it. That’s why the things I want right now are like:
1) a facebook
2) unlimited texting
3) an iPod.
See? But I’m not allowed to have any of those things.. so maybe this is just a case of wanting what you can’t have?
But I want running stuff. Like those spandex compression running pants
(i have them in capris and totally adore them). And there’s something called a SPIbelt. which is a belt to wear when you are running. i actually just found out about it but there are great reviews on it and I want it!!! 🙂
What do you want for Christmas?
