Hinting, hinting...

All by myself again… Just me and my Chinese food leftovers… So, ahem… no recipes again… I’m sure you’re not surprised…

I was sitting here wondering about Santa... He must be a pretty busy guy, getting all those wish lists, and planning all his shopping/toy making… And I figured, why not be proactive and write him a wish list now? So he knows what I want and all. So he can plan me into his shopping schedule…

And therefore I wrote him a letter… I hope he has access to the Internet, as I only correspond online nowadays.

Here it goes…

Dear Santa.

How are you? Did you have a good year? Did you keep an eye on me? You did? Then you must know I’ve been a good girl. So it is with complete belief in my goodness that I’m sending you my wish list for this year.

First of all, I would like a huge mansion. The kind that celebrities are usually not satisfied with and constantly have to rebuild. I’m not that picky, Santa. That house J.Lo. got and spent millions on upgrading? I would’ve been just fine with it. Really. Even if it only has one pool. That’s cool with me.

Secondly, I’d love a nice Mercedes convertible. For cruising around my mansion. You can’t really expect me to walk around it, can you? I mean, this is the 21st century. We don’t walk. Unless we’re in the gym. Cause that’s our only way of justifying inventing both the elevator and the stair master.

Of course, given the above, I’d like a membership to a mega snobby gym club with a personal trainer and all. Or you can build a proper gym in my mansion. I leave that up to you. As I said above, I’m not that picky.

If you dab into medicine, you could consider taking care of the whole morning sickness nonsense… You know, sixth month of it, that’s kinda pushing it. And of course once you’re on that wave, you might as well make me skinny again. I can take a rain check for that till March. But then I’d like a Britney Spears type of makeover (just the skinny part, thank you…)

Some furniture would be nice too. The whole empty dining room thing looks a bit strange… But I’d have to go shopping with you, Santa, cause that’s something I am pretty picky about… Sorry…

If you really can’t master those, at least consider giving me a proper KitchenAid Mixer. You know, that fancy one, with all kinds of attachment. Cause I don’t have any mixer at all. And that’s a shame…

You may even forward this last request to my husband.

And if he complains about the budget, at least convince him to get me a small hand-held one. I could probably live with it till next Christmas… If he accompanies it with some diamond earrings or a very nice card…

Thank you, Santa.

Yours truly,


PS: and if the above mentioned husband wants something for himself, feel free to tell me what it is, cause I'm flat out of ideas...

Dear Vasilisa,

Your husband wants a Porsche.


-ps- I don't see you on my good list. Instead, you get to have morning sickness for the full nine months.

I'm going to forward that list to Santa with my name on it, too. (Well, except the morning sickness part. I'm okay on that front.)

I want one of those full size mixers, too! They are so ridiculously expensive. Also, I'd like a food processor. I got a Cuisinart mini-prep one when I got married, and it's awfully cute, but it can't handle much.

But I doubt Santa will come through for me. If he's watching, he knows how lazy I am in the kitchen. Maybe he'll bring me a Pizza Hut gift card.

Very sweet letter.

Santa got me a new house (not a mansion, but I'll take it) for Christmas this year...and also my birthday, my anniversary, Valentine's Day...I'm set for a while.

Socks always make nice gifts. NOT!

I've always wanted a KitchenAid Mixer too! And for some reason I want a red one. Problem is that I don't bake.

That gives me an idea - I want a hot tub. Yeah, I'd be very happy with that.

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
