Ooooh! I want that!

I'm a sucker for commercials. I'll see one for something as random as oven cleaner and think, “Oooh, I want that!” This got me to thinking about the many things I often find myself wanting. I know, it’s a waste not-want not world these days, but I can’t help myself.

I want that!

This is the perfect example – and the reason I thought to write this post – I saw the Lollipop Dell commercial for the new Mini laptop and said to Cor, “Oooh, I want that bitty pink computer. It’d be perfect for when I travel!” It’s only 2.5 pounds!

These loves have been on my wish list for six months now (since Christmas). Sadly, they're always on back order. ALWAYS! Come on, Pottery Barn! Give me a break and make more of these so that I can give one a happy hoot home.


It’s only a matter of time before I can enjoy this manmade wonder in my own town. (In-n-Out is coming to Draper soon.) In the meantime, I’m left wanting this Cali goodness.
I had the pleasure of test driving this handy little camera with the fantastic zoom and extra large preview screen, and boy howdy is it nice. It's just looking for a permanent home in my purse.

I love my pups. I do. But I’m a cat person at heart. And I’m especially fond of orange neens (Meg-speak for “cats”). Alas, my DH is allergic, which means my orange neen shall remain on my “Want” list.

I love red and I love sweaters, making this Anthropologie beauty a must.

I’m a bird nerd and Fossill’s number one fan—match made in heaven here!

How delightful is this new paper from Cosmo Cricket? Definitely a want.

I’m told this Hawaiian shave (that’s “shave,” not “shaved”) ice from Matsumoto Shave Ice is the king snow cone. Well, I L-O-V-E me a good snow cone, and I plan on bowing before this king sometime in my lifetime.

My love of snow cones and burgers leaves me wanting/needing this new Wii game. How would it be to have abs like hers?

As you likely know, supporting breast cancer causes is something near and dear to my heart. As you may also know, I’m a big Ford Mustang fan. So, when I saw that Ford released a Mustang that supports breast cancer, I was intrigued. And when I saw that it had pink incorporated, I was hooked! I SO want this. Of course, more than any of these things, I want a cure for cancer. One day…

So, what’s on your list of wants? You can leave me a comment or maybe you can post a list of wants of your own and leave me the link. Wait. Did I just start my own blog challenge? I think I did. Uh oh. What next? Chain e-mails? ;) Seriously though, I’d love to know what you’re wanting these days. You might say I want to know.

At the top of my wish list is a Cannon 50D

We just bought the little Dell for our college son (he has a desktop already-spoiled) and I secretly covet it! I want (need) a new mattress! Maybe a housekeeper...
Loved your list!

I seriously need to join you in stalking for those owl pillows. Are they PB or PBK?

Becky said...

I want to have a new car, and that little stang is pretty smoking...
I want my family and friends to be happy and healthy, can't buy that unfortunately.
I want some new schamncy shoes to replace the ones that the bad babies ate, but I am afraid to get any until I know for sure they are out of that "phase".
And I want my butt to be smaller without having to eat less or exercise more.
That was fun to think about that, thanks for the challenge!

Megan said...

All good wants, ladies. I agree that the 50D, a housekeeper and a smaller backside would all be fantastic!

Sherry, the owls are PBK. You can find them on their website under "plush toys."

Thanks for the great comments. They make me happy. :)

A printer with great specs and 12 x 12 print capacity, a external hardrive, a better portrait lense, and a bedroom set for our house being built!!

A baby. I just want a baby.

Well, one more thing: it would be nice if my three and a half year old would actually LET me take her picture. It's hard for a picture lovin' mama to have a daughter who doesn't like her picture taken!

Megan said...

Ohh! I LOVE that Fossil purse.

Jennifer Leigh said...

I love Canon! I want the Rebel so bad! Some day!

Alice said...

hmmm...more hours in the day? a clone of myself to maybe get everything done that I'd like to...guess a full-time housekeeper would be pretty good too :) oh, and another two or three months of summer vacation!

Hmmm... maybe I should do a want list. Hmm... what is even *on* my want list?!

And ohmigoodness, had I known that you love Mustangs when I first met you, I would have told you... LOL... when I arrived in Anaheim, they had ran out of economy rental cars. So for my entire stay in CA (one week), do you know what I drove around?! A white Ford Mustang, Baby!

MmmHmm, and it was fabulous! And I would have given you a ride! Heck, I would have let you take it for a spin around the block! *sigh* Maybe they'll run out of economy cars next time too... ;-)

*reyanna klein* said...

Oh! And p.s... that Brooke set from Pottery Barn (that cute one with the owls and trees) is my absolute favorite EVER! I'm actually contemplating buying the whole crib set PLUS twin set for my future daughter... just in case they retire it before I *have* a daughter. :)
