The Covet List

In my continuing effort to procrastinate in finishing my honeymoon recaps and start my wedding recaps ( I've set a goal to get them cranked out before our 1 year, o.k. that's a really lazy goal, but I'm a lazy blogger, so it works) I am going to go on a sidetrack.

This is a pure and simple "I want" post. You know, that mental, or perhaps not so mental, running list of things that you have been jones-ing to have for months, and would surely die happy (or so we've led ourselves to believe) if you had them all.

Without further ado, I present to you, my current "Covet List"

1. Our wedding photos - . . wait, what? yeah, you read that write. The disclaimer: it's totally not our photographer's fault that we don't have our wedding photos yet. They have been in our online proof gallery for months, just waiting for us to purchase the digital negatives. The real reason behind the delay lies in the fact that we just never came up with the mula to buy them before the wedding, and are currently saving up to do so. I CANNOT WAIT until I can hit "add to cart" on these lovelies, cause recaps are fun!


My regular point and shoot Nikon got me through a semester abroad and 4 years of college just fine, but now that I'm a big girl and want to take big-girl (read: not crappy) pictures, I could really go for a camera that can keep up. . .and actually take a halfway decent indoor photo. I mean, really, is that too much to ask?

3.  A decent night's sleep, no . . . scratch that, an AMAZING nights sleep

yes, I've laid on one, yes, they are as amazing as everyone makes them out to be, and one needs to make its way to my house, STAT.

You see, sleeping is not just something I do to survive, I view sleeping as more of a hobby, I'm really really good at it, so why not have the best equipment for all of my  . . . hobbying?

4. The "I Chee" of Kitchen appliances

Somehow, I've convinced myself that, if I possessed this piece of culinary genius, I would suddenly have the time, energy, and skills to whip up endless culinary creations that my friends "ooo" and "ahhh" over. Images of sending my tiny processor sailing over the railing of our 4th story apartment are coming to mind. . . .gimme gimme gimme. On a separate note, why does it seem that every recipe calls for a food processor? Are they trying to mess with me?

5th and Final on the List: I-want an I-phone!!!

Do I really need to explain this? It's the single best social networking, blog following, productivity fueled device out there right now. And my crap-berry just won't die!

Come hell or high water, I'm marching into my local Verizon in September and snagging my piece of the 2011 American Dream!

So tell me, what's on your current covet list? Maybe your list will make me add to mine ;)
