    I'll fix you Up.
    I will make the necessary arrangements for you, I will get whatever you need.
    "Let me know what day you'll be arriving in town, and I'll fix you up."

    We're all for it.
    We agree with you and are in favor of it.
    "I told the others in the office about your suggestion of sponsoring a blood drive. We're all for it."

    I'll take your word.
    I believe what you say, just because you say it.
    "Are you sure this bridge is safe? It looks dangerous to me, but I'll take your word for it and go across it."

    Make up your mind.
    Make a choice or a decision, right now.
    "Do you want mashed potatoes with your steak, or a baked potato?"
    "I don't know....they both sound good....."
    "Make up your mind, I don't have all day to wait!"

    "You asked for it!" = " you deserve it!"
    Yes. Often used sarcastically.
    Also sometimes used as a rejoinder when presented a requested item to someone.
    The clerk at the bank is obviously very busy, and John keeps calling for her attention. She finally stops what she's doing and asks him, "May I help you?"
    "May I have change for a dollar, please?" he asks, handing her a bill.
    Infuriated at being bothered for something so trivial, the clerk brings him a roll of one hundred pennies, instead of four quarters.
    "You asked for it, you got it," she says, slamming the roll on the counter.
