I’m cheating a little this week, since I just did this Wish List Wednesday post last week. (Ahem. Hil? Pray tell, where did you get the idea for your blog carnival, anyway? ;p Hmm?) So, as to not bore my regular readers with a redundant post, here are the wonderful things that are on my “favorites” list this week, even if I don’t actually HAVE any of them. Yet.
Let’s deviate from Wordless Wednesday, shall we, so I can share with you all the yummy things I’ve recently decided I
need would love to have, should an extra $500 gift card show up in my mailbox.
- The soundtrack to the movie Valentine’s Day. Jim and I saw this movie over the weekend, and it was such a great experience. Good cast, good story, good music. I’ve checked out the soundtrack, and I can just see me playing it to Baby Girl as we hang out in her nursery (which is really coming along, by the way).
- Lisa’s new pewter heart. Sigh. Love.
- This painting of Kim’s:
Of course, not this exact painting, as I don’t plan to name the baby Caroline. But something like this. I think this is my favorite font that Kim uses, and I really like the layering on this canvas. So, yes. Wish list and all that. (Hey, Jim, how cute would it look if it said Reese? How about Tessa Reese?)
- We have inherited my great-grandmother’s buffet/sideboard, and it’s now at home on the back wall of our dining room. I have a vision of how I want to accessorize it, and I think I’ve found the perfect lamp to go on each end:
The shade is very similar to the shades on our chandelier, and I love the shape and color of the base. These lamps are currently on sale at Pier One, and I’m just trying to justify the cost. Oh, and I suppose I should ask Jim if he likes them…
- Because I’m just so ready for spring:
I have never, ever justified the cost of Yankee Candles. Not when WalMart sells equally yummy-smelling ones for a meager $5. But. I burnt a Yankee Candle’s Mistletoe all through December, and now I’m hooked. I LOVED the way the whole house would fill with the aroma, and I’m ready to have that house-filling delightfulness again, with a springy twist.
So, there’s just a little peek into what I’ve been lusting over the past few days. But until my AmEx gift card shows up, I’ll satisfy myself with the more readily-available treat of Zantac and TUMS. This late-pregnancy heartburn is kicking. my. butt.
