I’m a big fan of only two shows on TV, and two shows only! Gilmore Girls, which I’ve been fortunate to obtain all seasons of, and ER, which I haven’t ever been able to get. So, on my wishlist is seasons 1 through 15.

There’s also a magazine on the list that I’ve always wanted to subscribe to, a couple pieces of jewelry that I really love and one last thing that is totally hobby related and includes:

So, that’s what I’ve got on my list for this year. Do you keep wishlists for your birthday? What’s normally on them?
