Wednesday Wants

Since Christmas is right around the corner (yay!) and we're also moving into a new place this weekend (which means décor ideas galore!), I thought I would make a list of some things I'd like to have :)  Not that anyone that would buy me a Christmas gift reads my blog  lol  (wishful thinking I suppose). And my wants can be a little on the pricey side :) imagine that....


1.
 
I really want to do a photo wall like this one that Tatertots and Jello did.  I think it's awesome and it's happy and cheerful and just really cool.  She put the full tutorial up here on how she did it and even where she got everything.  The picture frames can be ordered from Cut It Out and then you just paint them whatever color you want.  I think this could be a little bit of a pricey project and I would want it all completed and not just a piece here and a piece there so I'll have to save for just a little bit :)  The frames themselves aren't bad but they don't come with glass and they have to be spray painted so by the time you add all that together and then also order your print...it adds up.  I really like the table she has here too.  She painted an old piece that her grandmother had.  I need to start perusing yard sales!
 
2.
 I want this mirror from Ikea.  I like the thick frame and I like that it can hang on the wall or just sit on the floor.  And I like that it's only $99.  I need to be able to see if I look ok completely before I walk outside lol "Do these boots really go ok with this dress?" type of thing :)
 
3.
This is a crappy picture but I want this lil' Pandora charm for my bracelet.  It's a gondola from Jared :)  It will be the only Pandora thing on my bracelet but WHO cares! lol
 
 
4.
I'd like a new down alternative comforter/duvet.  Doesn't have to be this one but something similar.  I think I want a king size since Darren and I tend to tug the comforter back and forth between each other lol  I want to get my mom to make a white duvet cover and have a luxury hotel feel to it.
 
 
5.
 
Along the same bedding line.  I'd really like a headboard.  I like the look of the button tuft headboards but man are they expensive (I'd say at least $400 in the store).  We don't have any bedroom furniture right now.  We have a chest of drawers that actually belongs to my brother but we don't have nightstands or anything so obviously I'd like some bedroom furniture.
 
6.
Gift cards for clothes are always greatly appreciated and needed.  And now that I think about it....it's sad that these are the only 4 stores I can think of.  I obviously need to get out shopping more.  I just can't ever afford clothes from White House Black Market or Ann Taylor or Banana Republic, etc etc.
 
 7.
If I had a spare $700 or whatever...I'd like a new laptop.  I'd like one that I can put Photoshop on so I can do everything on there that I want to for my blog without having to sit at a desk and do it because I sit at a desk ALL day long.  I don't want to do it at home too.
 
8. Random expensive wants? I'd like to travel.  I'd like to do a photoshoot with Bobbi+Mike. I'd also really like to have a baby.  Perhaps we can make all of that happen within the next couple of years :)
