Mommy Wish List

Quick weekend update - we had a fantastic one!  After seeing an absolutely awful foreclosure house Friday afternoon, we agreed that we were going to take the weekend off of stressing about houses and regroup on Monday.  Then I got a frantic email from our realtor at 6:07 am Saturday morning.  I can't get into details right now (because I don't want to jinx anything - yes, I'm superstitous like that), but it ended up not being the no-house-talk weekend we were hoping for.  But we are hopeful that it was worth it.  Anyway, Sunday we had a great family day.  We took the kids to the zoo, which they absolutely loved.  Then we just hung out, I vacuumed out the van (wow, did it need it!) and we went to the car wash.  Great weekend overall!  Oh, except that little basketball game Saturday night.  Let's not talk about that.  I'm still depressed.  I need another day or two to digest that.

I don't know what made me create this little list.  I think it is the spring weather we are having (finally in the 50's).  But I don't buy myself stuff very often.  I'd much rather spend the money on new clothes for the kids or spoil them with a new toy that they pick out by themselves.  I like shopping for clothes for Tyler too or surprising him with a new Brewers sweatshirt or something.  I usually wear the same things over and over and I hate shopping for myself.  I consider myself pretty low maintence, but I do splurge and get my hair highlighted twice a year.  With that being said, I do have a small list of things that would make me pretty darn happy.  Things I would buy myself if I had lots of money and maybe somewhere to go to actually show some of it off.

In case someone near and dear to me is reading this, I thought I better be very specific.  Mother's Day is coming soon.  Now I just need to teach Kyla and Kase how to read.  Hmm...

1.  New running shoes - Mine have holes in them, which doesn't keep me from wearing them, but it would be nice to have some that don't get my feet wet when it's raining or where you can't see my toes :)
These would do :)
2.  Rain boots - Every mom needs rain boots right?

Love me some polka dots :)
3.  Distressed jeans - I could use a few pairs of jeans now that I think about it.  I only have one pair that fit and they are not very cute.

Love these from Gap
4.  Fresh tulips - I told Tyler not to get me flowers on Valentine's Day.  I'd rather have them on a random day when I'm least expecting it.  If I had lots of money, I would have fresh flowers on my table at all times.  They just make me happy.

A bright, fun colored vase would be good too!
5.  Brewers hat - It's baseball season and we love our Brewers.  I'd love a hat to throw on quick when I run errands, take kids to the park, or whatever.

I like this one - or any women's one that has the netting stuff in the back.
6.  A weekend getaway (I'd even settle for one night) - I've been feeling a little stir crazy lately.  Since I quit my teaching job in January, I don't think I've been anywhere but Target.  Ok, that might be a little bit of an exaggeration, but not too far off.  I'd just like to go somewhere, nowhere specific, just somewhere that involves a hotel, eating out, walking around seeing things, maybe even an away Brewer game to Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis?  I need somewhere to wear those cute new jeans :)

There's not a picture of all of that so I just chose Chicago since it was pretty :)

That's all for now, that's not too much to ask, right?  I'd be thrilled with any one of the six!

Hope you all had a great weekend!
