My wishlist this year: need vs.want

Tis the season to start decorating and start making lists! Our 3 year old has even caught on and told us he wanted to make his list for Santa. Yes, this is only the beginning!

My wish list is short this year. Most of all, I just want to have an uncomplicated pregnancy for the rest 5 months and a healthy baby to arrive in April. But, if you twisted my arm, I might share with you some things I wouldn't mind unwrapping this year. I am not requesting anything fancy, I would just like some practical items. Things I "need" more than "want".

I am in desperate need of new tennis shoes. Especially after the baby is born, I am going to kick my fitness routine into high gear. I love my Saucony's that I currently have, so when I spotted these in Orange I knew I had to have them! Grid Shadow Genesis $80 on Zappos

I have had my eye on this J.Crew peacoat forever. It's a timeless classic and perfect for Kansas City winters. I find I don't wear my heavy coats I used to have to wear in Chicago! Her Majesty's Peacoat in Navy $258

I am in need of a some organization in my life. I could use a new dayplanner and some cute file folders. I came across from these fun printed planners from Sarah Pinto. Right now you can get a planner, one notebook and a set of notecards for $30. What a deal!

I think I love the poka dot pattern the best...

I am in desperate need of some new pajamas. Marigot Collection is a Kansas City based company that makes the most gorgeous cotton pajamas and cashmere lounge wear. I have my eye on these Lorient print pajamas with shorts. They are available for pre-order now and will ship mid-February. $150

I have been taking The Bar Method classes at the brand new studio that opened here in Kansas City. I am officially obsessed. It's a fantastic workout, and I hope to continue this through my pregnancy and after. I would love the DVD's to do right after the baby is born. Once the baby comes, I will only have a few months to get in shape for swimsuit season!!!!

I have been doing photography on the side and would love to get a new lens. A photographer friend recommended the Canon EF 50MM lens. I looked at some photo examples take with this lens and they are amazing. The lens itself is only $106 (on Amazon). Anyone use this lens? Would you also recommend it?

So, I am dying to know...what is high on your list this year?  


  1. I saw those orange shoes at TJ Maxx this weekend. May want to check yours out.

  2. Mel, I have been wanting to get a great new camera - do you have any recommendations for a novice?

  3. We just got the Canon 50mm/1.8 too. Came highly recommended by two photographer friends. Mollie - we have the Canon EOS Rebel T2i...also highly recommended for novice. And get the book Momarazzi....

  4. Totally hear you about a healthy pregnancy and baby, as that is first on my list! Also expecting in April(with a boy this time)! Love the orange sneakers and those cute pj's. The J. Crew coat would look great on you!

  5. Mel - I have that lens. LOVE it. Great for faces and details. Yummy baby and kid pics. (And congratulations!)

  6. Those Saucony's are on sale for $60 at www.saucony.com! :)
