It's that time of year in which everyone starts sharing everything their little hearts desire. So here is my twist on that trend. This isn't necessarily a Christmas wish list (although I wouldn't complain if I received any of these items...). In fact, this is essentially a wish list in a wish list. A wish list INCEPTION, if you will. :)
So here we go for the first, more "grand picture" wish list. I'm at that point in my life where I'm ready to put down roots somewhere (see previous blog entry for further proof). So, my dream life plan, or a bit of a "life wish list", goes something like this:
1. Husband gets a full time job. Hopefully within the next six months or so, we will find out whether that is where we currently live or if we are going to relocate to find this stability.
2. Buy a house. I'm fine with renting somewhere a little bit bigger, but it is so hard to find a rental that will actually let you have pets, and I have gone too long without a dog. Plus, the monthly cost of renting vs. owning is about the same.
3. Sell a bunch of our stuff online or at a garage sale. Since we are poor, we have pretty much taken anything we can get for free or cheap. It is all fine for right now, but my taste is always evolving. And I would love to get a little bit of money for the stuff I already have so that I can invest in some more quality pieces.
4. Invest in some more quality pieces. :) This would be over time of course, and collected from various places. I've had a difficult time really decorating anywhere we have lived so far because I know we won't be there for a very long time. Instead, I've been saving up some ideas for our eventual "permanent" home.
I've been collecting a few home decorating wish list items from my favorite sites on a secret board on Pinterest. So here are a few of the types of items that I would love to invest in! So, here we go with the second, more materialistic wish list. :)
What are the home decor items that you are drooling over? And where are your favorite places to shop? I feel like I go to the same places over and over. I need some variety in my life! :) Leave your suggestions in the comments!
