1. Egg Nog Latte – Just when I’m doing really well at cutting down on Starbucks, here come the holiday drinks. How can I drive by without stopping for an egg nog latte? I need restraint.
2. Caramel Truffles – After all the Halloween candy, the last thing we needed was more chocolate. Yet, I walked into Whole Foods yesterday, and their holiday truffles were out. This year, they have caramel truffles. Kill me now.
3. Pirate’s Booty – Whole Foods had Pirate’s Booty on sale - 2 bags for $1.99. They practically jumped in my cart. The only problem is that they put crack in this stuff. If I sit down with a bag, and it’s gone in seconds.
4. Pumpkin Scented Candle – I was down to a six-month supply on candles, so you can see why I needed this. I didn’t have one that quite smelled like a freshly baked pumpkin pie.
5. Pull-ups – I thought these would go hand and hand with the Dora potty. Georgia thinks differently. She will not wear the pull-ups. In fact, she will run naked around the house until I show her that the only thing I am putting on her naked bottom is her regular diaper with the picture of Blue on it.
6. Honeyroasted sunflower seeds – Damn Whole Foods to hell!
7. Leftover Halloween candy – Okay, we have buckets full of Halloween candy, but we didn’t have any Heath bars . . . . or Take 5 bars. We do now.
8. Pantene shampoo and conditioner – Not my fault. Georgia threw it in my cart, and I paid for it before I noticed. Gaaaa!
9. More white wine – Okay, scratch that one. After potty training my daughter, this one falls in the “need” category.
10. Paddle brush – When you’re attempting to straighten curly hair, you need to blow dry with a paddle brush. Eric doesn’t get why my other (round) brush won’t work for that. So this one is a debated need. Of course, then he argues that I don’t “need” to straighten my hair. Dude.
11. Everything in the Nog family – In our house, we now have regular egg nog, pumpkin flavored egg nog and milk nog. Not only that, but I had to restrain myself from buying the apple spice flavored nog. See - clearly, I’m not insane.
12. Yogurt – I don’t particularly like yogurt, yet I buy it with the good intention of eating it, then it sits in the refrigerator until it passes its expiration date, I throw it away, and I buy more. Okay, maybe I am crazy.
13. Fur-lined Crocs for Georgia – The only shoes Georgia has wanted to wear since March were her Crocs. Since it was getting cold, I spent $30 (much to Eric’s chagrin) and bought her fur-lined Crocs. She hates them with a passion. When I attempt to put them on her, she kicks them off and screams so loud that she could shatter glass.
