All I Want For Christmas






Now that Christmas time is near, it's time to revisit this subject. I've been asking for the same thing now for several years in a row but have yet to get it. Will someone PLEASE tell Brian that for $8, he can make me a very, very happy wife? Interestingly enough, these cute little guys can be purchased HERE. Obviously I'm not the only lady in the world that thinks pink tools are a good idea!

I had my own hammer and screwdriver before we married but somehow mine became his, moved to the garage and has yet to be seen or heard from again. I'm a thinkin' that if I were to have a pink hammer and screwdriver that neither Brian nor Ryan would be caught dead using them and therefore they would stay where I put them and would be accessible when needed! Not that I'm known to use one or the other often, but it would be nice to have a set handy. In their own little cute pink tool box would just be icing on the cake. Not to be demanding or anything.

Which all of this reminds me of a funny story. They were asking the children at Emma's daycare what their mother's wanted for Christmas, I'm thinking this was when Emma was 3. She told her teacher that her mommy wanted a "screwdriver". I was told later that the teachers all laughed and laughed and laughed because they thought I was referring to an adult beverage! Guess there must not be that many ladies who ask for a pink screwdriver for Christmas!

I think this is a wonderful gift. When I moved into my apartment, my best friend got me a girly tool bag. I love it!

Good Luck with that... I completely understand the tools missing...and we own a construction company... but some how when i need a hammer or a drill... i can hardly find them!!!! About every 2-3 years i need a new cordless drill... because mine disappears and sometimes returns all nasty.

If i knew your hubby... i would make sure he gets it for you! I hope that you get them... they are sooooo cute, too. I am a fan of pink tools... and you are probably right about the guys not wanting to use them.

I'll pass along this to a certain hubby! Maybe he's afraid if he gets you your own set you will take matters into your own hands. :o)

I remember reading about a guy who was putting something together and asked his little boy for a screwdriver. The boy asked if he wanted a mommy screwdriver or a daddy screwdriver. Curious, the man asked for a mommy screwdriver. They boy brought him a butterknife. :)
