things I wants......The Blooming Hydrangea

The Blooming Hydrangea

So, just in case you are getting bored (is that even possible?) with all the items I'm wanting/obsessing over....I thought it might be fun to hear about what some of my fellow blogging friends like/want/can't live without.  First up is Ange from The Blooming Hydrangea....she is responsible for one of my absolute favorite blogs....has the creative gene.....if you don't believe me, check out her cloffice and bathroom:

and is one of my blogging best friends forever {BBFF}, yes, that just happened.

Anyhoooo, here we go!


Good Morning Peeps!  I am so excited to be guest posting over here with one of my awesome Blogging Friends or as we call ourselves BBFF, Patience, who blogs at White Lacquer!  Isn't she the best? I just love her bar cart she found the other day at Goodwill and am hoping one day she finds one for me as well. Shipping might be a little spend but it will be worth it!  Plus, what about that settee?  Gorgeous isn't it?  This girl has style! 

Today I'm going to share with you a few things that I love and some things I have on my want list!

To start things off, I'm going to be a bit pracitcal because I am a mom.  I really want a pretty mudroom that also hides the items of four kids.  I am so tired of shoes, hats and mittens being scattered all over the mudroom floor.  I am hoping to make something like this soon, as in before my kids graduate high school!

So maybe that was a little too practical, right?  All practicality and reasoning aside, I want this, for reals. In fact, I want this real bad.  Maybe Santa will bring me a nice shiny new camera for Christmas, one can hope right!

Ok, this is a little silly but I really would love to have an owl.  Even better how about an owl with glasses?

Any DIYer that loves to paint things, can not live without their trusty spray paint!  Even better than that, I can't spray without my sprayer handle.  It is a must have for me and I love it! Just try it and see how your finger doesn't feel bruised after pressing on spray paint triggers for hours at a time.

I already own three pairs of boots but I think these might make my collection complete, love these! In fact, I pinned them twice.

I love Salted Caramel, is anyone else obsessed with this as well?  Just look at this goodness mixed with chocolate, is there anything better?

I just had to wipe drool off my keyboard so I could finish this post.  If you want to make me some of that yummy goodness and send it to me, I'll email you my address.  Seriously. Because if you happen to look at the directions, it takes time to make these and I don't know if I have that amount of time right now. I need to finish painting all the oak trim in my house first.
Finally, I can't make it through the day without my phone.  I joined the world of s
mart phones in September and now I don't know I lived without it.  I use the Google Reader app on my phone so I can read while waiting at an appointment, in the bathroom, yes it's true or even during a really boring meeting.  Shhh, don't tell.  I use the internet to look up coupons for stores like The Childrens Place, Joann Fabrics and American Eagle.  Along with that nifty bar code scanner app to help me find the best deal and see the reviews of products before I buy.  I also love the  Good Reads app for when I am at the library looking for books to read and I cant remember the author or book name.  Of course I also have the Craigslist app which has come in handy many a times.  This phone is awesome and I'm so glad it's mine!

I really wanted to add boobs to the things I want list but that  would've been kind of weird and I have the money to get some.  I also wouldn't voluntarily put myself through an unnecessary surgery cause I'm a big chicken. Was that TMI?
Thanks for letting me share some randomness with you all today. It was great fun visiting and I hope you'll stop over and say hi!


Thank you so much for sharing Ange!!!  I will also take a cute owl with glasses!  Check her out daily at The Blooming Hydrangea!!!
