Erin Burnett's Shopping List for Suitors

We have seen Chris Matthews drool over her on live television but he might have second thoughts after reading the extensive shopping list of CNBC's Street Signs anchor, Erin Burnett. Her expensive list of things she wants from suitors was published in Men's Health as 8 Ways to Impress Me. None of the ways in which one can impress Erin has anything to do with personality. It all comes down to spending big bucks on Erin as you can see from her list:

1. Pack Your Bags
Any guy who can plan a trip to an exotic locale, such as Mongolia, Mozambique, or Papua New Guinea, would impress me.
2. Buy Me a New Atlas and Globe
You could unlock my heart by allowing me to dream up my next trip. I love to travel, and hope to eventually set foot in 100 countries. I have many more to go.
3. Do Something Special for My Parents
Family is important to me, so round-trip business-class tickets to Australia and New Zealand for my parents would earn you big points in my book.
4. Relax Me
Yoga keeps me calm, so I'd be impressed if you thought to send a yoga instructor to my apartment for private sessions.
5. Help Me Work Out
Finding an exercise bike at my door would be great for rainy days when my Raleigh M80 mountain bike and I are stuck indoors.
6. Edify Me
Reading is a passion of mine, so a gathering with a couple of my favorite authors, especially Jared Diamond (Guns, Germs, and Steel) and Robin McKinley (The Blue Sword) would make for an exceptional evening.
7. Please My Palate
Hiring a personal chef to prepare meals for the few nights a week I am home would be unforgettable.
8. Send Me Packing
A man who recognizes the importance of my time with the girls is a keeper. A long weekend spa getaway for my sisters and me would be perfection.
So Chris Matthews should keep this in mind the next time he drools over Erin. He is going to have to dig deep into his pockets if he wants to impress the material girl. And for the big bucks he is expected to shell out, he probably won't even get to spend any "quality time" with the Street Signs anchor since demand #8 on Erin's shopping list is to send her "packing" to spend a long weekend holiday spa getaway with the girls.
