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?" Um...no.

So, there it is, my Wish List.

What is yours?

Would you like to comment?

  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! http://www.amazon.com/Hoover-Bagless-Upright-Vacuum-S2220/dp/B00020BQGK/ref=cm_cr-mr-title 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 now...it'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.
