This might be one of the single greatest things I have EVER heard of! Hold onto your seats.
Here's the thing, I'm a list person...are you? I make lists for just about EVERYTHING! Traveling, grocery shopping, work lists, Christmas lists, things I want lists.
It gets exhausting, really.
I also have learned that my husband can not read my mind...it's true ladies. Men are not mind readers, nor psychics. In fact, they're not even good at hints. If you have a man in your life and you want something, there is only one way to ensure you get it...tell him! This was a rather sad revelation for me because I LOVE surprises!
I realized I had to change my ways though. I started by first telling my girlfriends what was on my wish list, then telling hubs that he should "check with people, because people know things" and hoping he would check with the right people. That didn't work out.
Then I started telling "the people that know things" to offer up this advice and knowledge to hubs. That worked better, but that was confusing and stressful.
Then I started sending hubs links to things that I *liked*. Unbeknownst to me, he actually took it upon himself to create a "Kelly" file on his computer and save these things!!! I was beyond ecstatic when my birthday came around and he bought me this fabulous Michael Kors watch I had been pining for!
I was a proud wife.
There are flaws in this approach however. What if his computer crashes and he loses the "Kelly" file. What if my computer crashes and I lose my wish list. What if he goes shopping and forgets to take the list with him! I'd probably end up with some new hunting gear and a gift set of duck calls. Not okay.
But as I was perusing my blog list today I came across Wists!!! Huge thanks to Jamie at isuwannee.com for bringing this to all of our attention!! A wist is a...wait for it...online wish list!!! It's GENIUS!!!!!
All it takes is a few clicks of the mouse and you add another item to your Wist list!!!
Bryan NEVER has to ask me again what I want.
The only question I have lingering right now is...
WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS!!!!!
