What I’m Eyeing

June 30, 2013 in I Adore What I Love
It’s the last day of June, which is absolutely absurd to me.  Like, why is this summer flying by so quickly?  And this weather in Chicago is weird, and by weird, I mean so not as warm as it usually is; though it makes my staying at work after Summer School a little easier as I attempt to clean out and set up my new first grade classroom for this upcoming school year.  Anyways, today was a gorgeous day and my husband and I have taken full advantage by walking around all over this beautiful city that we call home!  For me, that’s what summer is all about… taking in the sweet smells, breathing in the warm air, and noticing all the things that usually would never even phase me in my busy lifestyle trotting around from place to place. 

So I have to admit – this post has nothing to do with the above.  Usually I try to connect my written ideas with the topic that I am posting about, but on this lovely Sunday afternoon, I decided to also give you a little insight into my life.  Which I guess is also what this little blog is all about… giving you a small glimpse into my life and sharing with you about the things that I love and adore.  Obviously the above paragraph fits the bill for that, right?!
With that being said, let’s talk things I want!  Anyone I know will tell you that if I see something I like,  most of the time I will buy it immediately.  Admittedly, this isn’t the best way to live but I can’t help getting a thrill out of shopping and buying new fun things. Just can’t.  Some things, though, are just out of my price range and better saved for a future birthday gift… or holiday gift… or well, you get my drift.Now, you’re probably wondering if I have a birthday coming up and the answer is no (it’s in September), or if there is a special holiday coming up that you don’t know about – and again, the answer is no, but in today’s post I thought I’d share a few things that are on my current list for someone else to buy me in the future.  Yikes – did that sound horrible?  I really didn’t mean for it to but who doesn’t like getting a gift you really want?!  Exactly =)  Maybe I’ll even splurge and buy one of these uhmaze items for myself in the coming months… hey, you only live once!!
