Wish List

It's July... Which means that it's time to start thinking about what I want for my birthday/Christmas. "What do you want for your birthday?" usually starts on October 1, and "What do you want for Christmas?" generally starts at/around Thanksgiving. (even though the post date says January--that's because I changed it to say that so this wouldn't show up at the beginning of the blog)

Ergo, I decided I should keep a list of things I want so when people (aka 'family') finally start asking, I'll have a better answer than 'hmm, I could really use some new socks.'

  1. Training treats for dogs at the shelter - Puproni, Bil-jacs, Blue Buffalo, Beggin' Strips, etc.
  2. Toys for dogs at the shelter (Kongs, stuffed toys - get 'em cheap, though)
  3. Consumables for the dogs at the shelter (bully sticks, rawhide chews, pig's ears, etc. - Amazon has some pretty good deals on bully sticks)
  4. Martingale collars for dogs (size Medium seems to be the best size to get) - order 'em for cheap from Amazon
  5. 6' nylon leashes for dogs (1" wide is best)
  6. Freedom Harness for dogs - size M and size L - I don't care about the color so get whichever color is cheapest. 
  7. Donate to your local animal shelter or to Dogs Out Loud
  1. Kitten toys (they tend to like small stuff they can carry around - so maybe a value pack of the little mice or a pack of 1" diameter pom-poms you can get at a craft store)
  2. Warming Disk/pad for foster kittens ("Snuggle Safe" seems to be the brand) - or you can just google "Warming Disk Kittens" to see what it looks like.
Gift Cards:
  1. Gift Card to Petsmart
  2. Gift Card to Amazon 
    1. I would buy either dog-related stuff listed above, kitten related stuff listed above, Lua the Pup T-Shirt, or a treat pouch for training
  3. Gift Card to HEB
  4. Gift card to Academy
    1. I need more running socks, shirts, and yoga pants (size small should work for most cases), socks - size 6.5
  5. Gift card to Ikea
  6. Gift card to Lowe's or Home Depot
  7. Gift card to H and M
    1.  size small
  8. Gift card to Old Navy 
    1. Shirts: size small
    2. jeans: 'sweetheart' or 'dreamer' styles in size 0 or 1
  9. Restaurant gift cards (can't go wrong with Italian) 
  10. AirBnB now has the option of giving gift cards which is cool, but it requires you to create an account to send one.
  11. Gift card to Google Play store (to buy books)
  1. Gift cards to garden centers - The Great Outdoors and The Natural Gardener sell gift cards that you can purchase online.
    1. I could also use 2 more Dripping Springs Ollas, or some of the smaller ones for flower pots, or I can make my own using plain terracotta pots
    2. I could always use more natural fertilizers like Sea Weed or Fish Emulsion
  2. Felco One Hand Pruning Shears or Picking and Trimming Snips (small hand size is probably the best)
  3. Long Handle Hose Nozzle - sold at most garden stores and HEB.  They look like this)
House and Home:
  1. Kamenstein 3oz spice jars (can be found at the Kitchen Collection at the Outlet mall)
  2. Variera or similar shelf rack to use wasted space in cupboards (can be found at Ikea)
  3. "Thirsty" coasters 
  4. Access Flosser Refills

  1. Texas Stars hockey tickets
  2. Musical/Orchestra/Play tickets (specifically Jurassic Park in Concert)
  1. +30 degree to +45 degree sleeping bag (for backpacking)
  2. Wool shirts - great for backpacking - SmartWool is a great brand, albeit pricey
  1. Community TV series (Dani already got me season 1)
  2. Lilo and Stitch movie
  3. About Time movie
  4. We're the Millers movie
Other Clothing:
