29 Nov

So Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone and I only purchased one present.  Last year I bought so many things on those 2 days I was nearly done with my shopping, but this year the sales just didn’t entice me.  And, I’m still struggling with what to get everyone.  My siblings and I talked about going for quality over quantity this year, meaning that if we are interested in one expensive present, maybe we can all just go in one it.  I think that’s a great idea because I have several expensive items I’m pining for right now.  They include:

A DSLR camera:

I’ve wanted a new camera for some time now.   I know you’ve heard me mention this before, and my desire for a new camera has only intensified.  I’ve seen several Groupons for photography classes too, but I’ve held off on buying one because I didn’t want to learn anything else on my point and shoot, I want to step it up. 

A new light fixture:

Again, I’ve wanted this light fixture for a while.  I’ve seen it in the dining room of a few bloggers, and I’m in love.  I have the perfect spot for it, now I just need the new fixture. 

A Dyson:

Um, enough said.  Who doesn’t want a Dyson?  Sean even wants this present.  We had one momentarily, and I remember thinking it was pretty good, but not realizing just how good it was until it was gone.  Now that I don’t have it, I weep whenever I vacuum.  Ok, not really, but basically I go over the same spot over and over only to then pick up the item that my vacuum is unable to get.  Vacuuming sucks.  I know this would be remedied by the Dyson.  We might even fight over who gets to vacuum.  Probably not, but like I said might

A chair (hopefully we could then get rid of some of our living room furniture)

It’s just so cute, and the print is perfect.  It would go so well with the couch that I eventually want to get.  I’m worried Target will stop carrying them before I’m ready with my new couch, so it’s on the list, though I’m not sure I’m ready for it just yet. 

Now that I’ve written this post, I feel like a huge jerk because my plan when I sat down to write was to talk about the present I want to get for Sean.  But, somehow it turned into everything I want.  Don’t worry though, I’ll be back with my gift idea for Sean.  I need some advice, and since he doesn’t read the blog, I can tell you all what I’m getting him!

What’s on your wish list this year?

    Oh my gosh! I just saw a version of that chandelier at an oh so swanky store in Berkeley this last weekend…and believe me, no one could have afforded it. I had no idea there was an inexpensive version out there! I love everything on your wish list, and completely agree with the “quality versus quantity” thing. I always love receiving (and giving!) something truly special.

    Wow, we’ve got similar taste!I asked for a dyson for Chanukah a few years back year and a similar chair from target (dolce lounge chair) was on my Chanukah list for this year! [] I literally *just* put it together and I’m really impressed with how it looks in person! Here’s hoping you get everything you want!

    haha i love that you started the post thinking you would write about what to get for sean. i remember that light fixture from your earlier post–it’s so pretty! i saw it at DWR the other day. i hope you get a camera! in terms of vacuums, just wanted to make a plug that the miele vacuums are fantastic as well and very compact! although of course the dyson is pretty awesome as well. could this be longer.

    The way you need to look at it is that you are asking for things that will be good for the both of you!! Thats totally how I swing things like when I got my expensive camera for my birthday- it would be for both of us since our pictures are for us. Also, the vacuum and chair are for both of yall too!!

    Oh, and the new camera will change your life!! Mine totally did. I got the Nikon D3000 and it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me!

    I LOVE that light fixture! If I had all the money in the world I’d buy it for you. 🙂

    My coworkers got us a Dyson as a wedding gift and I love it! I’ll never get another brand of vacuum. I hope you get one for Christmas! 🙂

    Great list!! I’d love a new camera lens for Christmas, but those babies are pricey, so I think I’ll just save up for it myself! 🙂

    Dyson Dyson Dyson! We have the Dyson Ball and it makes my life complete. Its funny, but you don’t realize how sucky your current vacuum is UNTIL you get a Dyson. Just don’t decide to use the suction hose to vacuum your mattress…unless you are prepared to see all of the dead skin that will be sucked out of it. Yeah, I wish I was kidding…have you seen them do that on HSN? I used to work there…eeeeeek.
