My Wish List

Now that I'm working I've been thinking about some things that I want to buy. After I put a dent in my bills of course, have to be a responsible adult before I indulge myself. I've seperated the items into things we need and things I want.

Things We Need

A new Queen sized mattress. We are currently sleeping on a very uncomfortable full sized bed. This is probably what I'm going to get first. I need a comfy, large bed!

Floor lamps- at least two. Our living room gets kind of dark.

Things I Want

A Chi straightner. This humidity in Louisiana does nothing for my hair. I need agood straightner to combat this.

The new Canon Rebel XTI. One of my goals/dreams is to be a professional photographer. I'm going to buy this camera for my 25th birthday present to myself.

A new laptop. I've never had a laptop, but I want one. This isn't a necessity since Sean and I are going to get a new desktop for ourselves, but I would SO love to have my own laptop. *Sigh*

Of course the obvious clothes, shoes and various seasons of my favorite T.V. shows are also on the list, but those aren't really noteworthy.

Sean still is in the field, so looks like Boomer and I will be hanging out tonight. I'm contemplating going to the gym to run, but I'm also hungry and would like to eat. I don't like to eat before going running though as it makes my stomach unsettled. What to do?

One thing I am going to do tomorrow is take my camera to downtown Leesville and take pictures. I work on Main Street and while walking to the post office today I noticed so many things I want to take pictures of. If any of them are good I'll try to post them tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a great start to their weekend!

Ah, I am so sorry, I accidently hit "Reject" instead of "Publish" on your comment on my blog. I read it and loved it...thanks for commenting! I just didn't want you to think I hated your comment :)

ps- I would LOVE a bigger bed!

Hi. I have a Chi Straightner and it is totally worth it. My hair is so curly and it straightens it flat as a board. It is really expensive up front, but I have had mine for about a year and a half and it still works great.

Yay for wish lists...Rob and I are wishing for a ton of stuff for our apartment, it seems like the moving in process never ends! Sorry that your husband is still out in the field, crazy infantry! Hopefully they'll come back soon. :)
