My Wish List

I don't usually do two posts in one day, this is rare, but I have some free time - dinner done, little man napping, husband running an errand.

Quiet house.

I saw this Wish List idea on another blog the other day and it made me laugh out loud reading some of the responses. It's simple, list 5 things you need/want and explain why. They can be simple, extravagant, or much needed.

Here are mine:

1. A new camera. I'm sure you are all literally bored to tears with some of my blurry, out-of-focus, flash induced pictures. What can I say...I am still using the same camera my husband and I bought the night before we left for our honeymoon almost 4 years ago.

2. A vacation. Related to #1. Our last vacation was that honeymoon almost 4 years ago. I think I deserve one. And I'm not talking about a weekend trip to the next state over. I want one that requires a plane ride.

3. A vacuum. Yep, I said it. I want a vacuum. Ours died about 3 months ago and I am currently using our Shop-Vac. Yeah, the thing you use to clean up BIG spills, like basement floods or sawdust from construction work.

4. A new set of pots and pans. We are down to two pots and one large skillet. For a foodie like me, this is very disheartening. Just the other day another one got thrown in the trash as the non-stick coating was entering our food.

5. A pedicure. My last one was when I was almost 9 months pregnant, last August. Not sure why I even got it as I couldn't see my feet...but it felt good. Other than the person sitting next to me asking, "are you having twins?"

So, there it is, my Wish List.

What is yours?


  1. I have a Canon Point and Shoot. I forget the name, but I can email you if you're interested. It wasn't that expensive, about $100 I think and takes awesome pics IMHO.

    About the vacuum - I can recommend a CHEAP and AWESOME one! Under $50 with free shipping from Amazon! It was the first item I was ever compelled to write a review on for Amazon and I gave it 5 stars. I've had ours for over 3 yrs now and it's tiny, light, and works awesome on the hard wood floors and rugs.

    Amen to the vacation and the pedicure! I hope you get to get at least one thing on your wish list soon!

  2. great list! Mine is a kitchen aid :)

  3. I wish for summer year round.
    I wish for a healthy baby.
    I wish for my cat Annie to live as long as possible.
    I wish The Shepherd and I continue to be best friends for as long as we live.
    I wish that my market garden business takes off in the next few years and I can be a work at home mom and raise my kids on the farm.

  4. Why haven't you had a pedicure since August? They are A-mazing! Go get one's strappy sandal season. :)

  5. I think this is a very good wish list. What's on the top of my wish list? To have more free time.
