To Spend or NOT to Spend

THAT is the question. I don’t have any curtains hanging in my house, but I would like to start slowly dressing my windows. First up, my office!

I want long, chocolate curtains, but my dilemma is: do I spend the extra $$$ to get good quality curtains or do I get the cheapo’s? What have you done in your house?

Fabulous Footwear Friday

It’s been a cold one down here in Houston people! (And by cold, I mean highs in the 40’s, which FORCED me to turn my heater on, which FORCED me to act like a big cold baby…) Anyway, I know that’s not cold to most of you, but while I was throwing my “it’s too damn cold pity party”, I decided to look for some cozy shoes to make me feel better. Could these not be any cuter!?!?!?! And the price made them that much more fab!

Birthday Wishlist

There are so many things in this world that I would love to have but a) will never buy for myself, and b) could not afford right now even if I did want to buy them. That, my friends, is the beauty of a birthday, and mine is right around the corner. Here are some items that are on my birthday wish list this year…

  1. Macy’s,  Keurig B60 Coffee Maker, Single Serve : This might be one of the greatest kitchen appliance I have ever used. For anybody who drinks a cup or 2 of coffee every day but not a whole pot, this is the perfect gift. No more cleaning a coffee pot. Ever again.
  2., KitchenAid 5 Speed Blender : Yes I want a blender for my birthday. And yes, it has to be this color.
  3. Victoria’s Secret, Motorcycle Jacket : I love this jacket. Every time I get a Victoria’s Secret catalog in the mail I drool over it.
  4. Old Navy, Women’s Sliver Wedge Boots: I really want some tall, flat boots in this camel color for the fall, and these are super cute without a super high price tag.
  5. Amazon, Mikasa Cheers Too 16-ounce White Wine Glasses :  I got the original Mikasa Cheers white wine glasses as a graduation gift and would love to have the full set.
  6. Target, Sex and the City 2 I loved the show and I love this movie. It was even better than the last one. I have the entire series on DVD as well as the first movie, so I need to complete my collection 🙂
  7. Amazon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse : Although it is not available yet, I am holding out hope it will be here by my birthday. I am a Twi-hard, what can I say.
  8. Target, Tom Tom XL 340T GPS : I will be the first to admit that my sense of direction sucks. When I eventually leave the small college town I currently live in, a GPS for my car will be a must have.
  9. Reebok,  RunTone Action Shoes : I just recently started running and I really want a pair of these shoes.  Who doesn’t want their butt to look better?
  10. Direct From Mexico, Large Thick Talavera Cross : a) I love all things Mexican (especially food and decor), and b) I collect crosses

Oh and one more thing…

Chocolate Brown Wiener Dog

A brother or sister for Lily 🙂

I’m Puzzled

I think these little gems are the coolest things.  I think they can act as a fun, functional hiding places for some of your more precious items.  Some of these boxes take 5, 10 and sometimes up to 20 different moves to merely open them.

  1. 10 Step Japanese Puzzle
  2. Indian Cat Puzzle
  3. Keepsake Puzzle Box – I own one almost identical to this, love it.  Fun to just disassemble and reassemble.
  4. 3 Step Polish Box
  5. Large Celtic Design Secret Box
  6. 4 Step Japanese Box
  7. 5 Move Morrocan Box
