Well, as usual, I'm going to talk about Pinterest today. I'm sure that's real a shocker to you faithful readers out there. So... Reason #4283565912134023.3 I love Pinterest - aside from getting your recipes and amazing DIY projects: I can create a wish list for my Mil and Ma.
It's really a great website to store anything and everything on it. I just wish they'd create a secret board so I could pin gift ideas for friends and loved ones without them seeing it!
After getting a glimpse of my board (the pic above), I trust that none of you are surprised at seeing (1) a puppy and (2) a pair of Toms. A girl can never have too many Toms (or puppies for that matter) in my book.
Anyways, I wanted to highlight a few reasonable and unreasonable "wishes" on my wishlist this year. I say that because I'm now at a point in my life where I'm not really wanting a lot of $15 items anymore (although jewelry from Forever 21 & the Loft is always accepted and appreciated) and this really saddens me... :( Does this happen when you get older or am I just getting a little too high maintenance? Anyways... This year more than ever I've wanted $50, $150, $200, & $600 items (see what I mean by unrealistic?). So in light of my awkward wish list, I thought I'd share a few of my fav's from it.
So here's my realistic list:
These are FABULOUS wash/scrub rags from Crate & Barrel. We received some as wedding gifts and I've been hooked ever since. I highly recommend them.
I love me some Jane Austen... since she's dead and doesn't have anymore to say on her classics, I'd love to read P.D. James' murder mystery Pride and Prejudice style.
A few swimming items for my first sprint triathlon.
And last but not least, a new pair of Toms... I think I have 4 pairs on my wish list. So once again, 4 might be unrealistic ;) BUT I just wanted to give folks some options. Leave a little surprise in it, ya know?
Ok onto the unrealistic items on my wish list. Don't judge me.
We'll start of big...
The Ipad2. Fancy Pants - I know. Enough said there...
If we're going to do a triathlon, a girls gotta have a bike ya know? (I feel like a kid again putting a bike on my wish list)!
The Keurig B60 - The Mister has his French Press and I think this would suit me just fine. I like this model a lot because it has the variety in cup sizes. Also, I like it a lot because it is similar to the one we had in our room on our honeymoon. :)
And probably the most unrealistic of all...
Man's best friend.
So that's what's on my list... What's on yours? And please tell me I'm not alone in having a crazy wish list this year...
