Craving Creature Comforts

The materialistic side of me needs occasional petting. Sometimes a stroll through Target does wonders for this need, other times I need crave creature comforts of a higher degree. Things like...



This Canon Rebel XS SLR digital camera. I want desperately to take my photographs up a level in quality. With this camera, I would be able to do that. Every time I see someone on the street with one, I get a shiver of envy. I can't help it. I just know that as soon as I get my hands on one I'll end up taking it with me all over our fair city. My husband is being a bit of an enabler when it comes to this spendy decision... he keeps telling me what a good photographer I am and that I really should get it so I can document our daughter's life with a quality camera. I may fall victim to his suggestion.



These Frye boots. Or some similar Frye boots. I have coveted a pair like these for about 5 years now, though I have never allowed myself to fork over the cash. They are pricey boots, those Fryes, but worth every damn penny if you ask me. I'd probably wear them in my sleep just to make it really worth it. I used to be a heels kind of girl, but now I fancy myself as a super-cool leather boot kind of girl. Which brings me to my next love...



Beautiful new sundresses from Anthropologie. I have 3 gorgeous sundresses from this smashing shop, but alas none of them fit me anymore. *wipes tears away* See, when Lulu was growing inside my belly, my ribs expanded to accommodate her 8 pound, 9 ounce body and... well... those ribs, they never went back. None of my beloved Anthropologie dresses will zip over my ribs anymore. I have thusly chosen new dresses to take the place of the old dresses.



A washer/dryer combo machine. There is no way that I could ever have this creature comfort in my current living situation. It would take all manner of re-piping the kitchen and I seriously doubt that would happen in a place where my landlords can't even be bothered to do even the smallest of maintenance tasks. But a girl can dream. Yes, a girl can dream about doing laundry. She dreams of doing it in her own house instead of doing it in a laundromat around the corner.


There you have it. The sum total of all of these items is somewhere around $3,000. If I win the lottery anytime soon, I'll be treating myself.

And if your mother should win the lottery she will buy you all these things and more...

You are a girl after my own heart! These things would almost all be on my short list. (Minus the camera, but plus a lens for the camera I do have)
I feel a bit like a stalker and have been perusing your blog. You really do take some great photos and you have a really good eye. You should get that camera. You would do wonderful things with it. Hope to see you and Lucy again soon!
