Wishing my Husband Cared about my Wish List...

I took Thursday and Friday off last week and it was glorious! I ran errands, went on walks with the dog, actually made my bed in the morning, took a pair of jeans I've had for at least a year to get hemmed...it was amazing that I could actually get things done during the week. I was kicking butt and taking names with all of the time I had on my hands so when the errands were done there was nothing left to do but shop! I come by it honestly.

Have you met my mother and Nana? Sophie Kinsella based a series of books on them. I digress...


Sometimes when I go shopping I find nothing. My husband likes those times. This was not one of them. Lately it seems that EVERYTHING is cute. From the clothes to the shoes to the watches to the purses, back to the shoes...It's all very tempting. Dave's favorite 2 words are NO and BUDGET so I am left to wish and hope and dream. I'll share a few of those dreams with you...

I can't get enough of maxi dresses in the summer. I think they are so cute, flattering, and they're literally the most comfortable things I put on. This dress is from the BP section at Nordstrom so it won't break the bank at $48.
These had me at hello. Trouble is, I like them in every.single.color. Oh, and Dave would never let me pay this much for "flip flops". Ever.


This Michael Kors satchel is at least 3 X cuter in person than it looks on your computer screen. Guaranteed. My mom and I were both in love. The good news for me is that she usually gets what she wants so I'm holding out hope that this is no different and I can carry it when it's old news to her. :)


I am in LOVE with these stackable rings from Tiffany's. My sweet sister and dear friends each got me one of these for my 30th birthday and I adore them. They are so perfect and meaningful and I would love to add this "I love you" band from a special someone to the stack. (Was that hint as subtle as a bus or what?)


These would go with everything. No more justification needed. The link sends you to J. Crew but Dillard's and Macy's sell them too and they are slightly cheaper. Especially if you can get them with a coupon at Macy's.


This is the one thing on the wish list I can actually get, because at $15, it's a no fuss purchase. In fact, I might go get it today just to make me feel better about all of this wish list business. These Camelback water bottles are my absolute favorite. I have several colors, but I have my eye on this one because of the shape. Finally one that will fit in the cup holders in my car! You need this for all that water you'll be drinking this summer!
Happy shopping!

Great wish list! I love the TB sandals and gold sperrys. I had no idea camelback finally makes a water bottle that will fit in cup holders. I love my camelback but hate that it fits nowhere in my car!

That Dave... what a hater! Fun list though!!! My "wish list" consists of a haircut, new plumbing in the front yard, a pedicure, an external hard drive in case my computer crashes and other awesome stuff like that. :)

Those sandals? NEED THEM.

Love the stackable rings.

Sara said...

Love everything on your list! Now if you could just get Dave to say those two words together..."No budget!" then all would be well and you could shop til you drop! Oh, wouldn't that just be heaven?

Love that maxi dress - so cute! And the shoes are to die for. Adorable things like Tory Burch sandals and handbags are the reason why B and I have separate bank accounts. Well, that and his expensive golf habit. :)

That striped dress is too cute! ... and oh, how I love Tiffany's! I've been dropping hints to Bailey about the "I love you" ring for MONTHS! We're two of a kind, girl! <3

No & Budget are often thrown around from my fiance. Men are no fun! ;)

Loving the stackable rings!

WOW--my Dave and yours must be kindred spirits (NO & BUDGET are his favorite words). I too am a shopper and LOVE finding the deals. I very rarely buy items that are not on sale BUT Dave argues that it doesn't matter if it was on sale or not, it was bought and I did not NEED it!! He gives in and I have yet to return anything but I believe that is more due to my mad skills of persuasion!!

By the way...that water bottle is GREAT!! We have two and I feel like I drink more water because it has a straw in it. DO IT!!
