Pintrest Wish List

So, I have pintrest, which a lot of you have too...anyway, I find myself constantly looking at my "Wish List" board. I put things that someday I plan on getting...who knows when. But I recently put tons of books. I have the Jane Austin leatherbound classic book from Barnes and Noble...and when Patty told me, "You should get some more" I said..."WHAT?! THEY HAVE MORE?!" and I went online and drooled. Here are some of my faves. 

I want so many of them. I think around 27 or something. I have a vision of having them displayed and reading out of them and reading my children out of the chidrenish ones. Someday, I really will have all those books. And with my new goal of reading classics, I just know it will all work out. I had this idea of rewarding myself with a new book everytime I finish one of them. They are ginormo so it would be quite a feat. And of course I would get some with gifts ;)

A couple other things I have been eyein'. 

Sigh...oddly enough, I don't get depressed or anything when I look at my "wish list". I just love pintrest for these reasons. I don't have to forget when I see something I want. Before when my birthday or Christmas came around I was like...dangit! What did I want? Now I have a solid picture list and it's so easy.

Here is my pinterest if you are into that kinda thing.

I didn't get pinterest when it first happened. But I'm thinking I should do it now- for the whole "I don't wanna forget thing" because it happens all the time. I love that headband/scarf. So youthful. I don't think I can pull that sort of thing off now. Wooden spoons- never seen that before. Somehow I lost some of my metal spoons and my dang plastic ones- the measurement has worn off and you can barely read most of them. It is so annoying. I need to replace them, but it aggravates me a bit, because they're still functional. It's just easy to grab a 1/3 cup instead of a 1/2. I'm so glad you came to visit!!! Yeah that documentary! I was thinking the same thing! The old history! CRAZY!!!! My friend has a grandma that went through it and wrote about it in her journal. Maybe it was a great grandma. I don't know. But can you believe the horrificness?!?! Pure evil. I remember wanting to collect books, but then I realized the language was all wierd, atleast it was THEN to me. Like Alice and Wonderland I think is totally wierd old english. So the idea has faded. But they ARE beautiful bookds. It would be a cool display. I'm such a pitiful reader. I can only read when it's relevant or actiony. I'm realizing I'm the opposite with movies. I love the slow ones the most. They are like therapy to me. That's how I felt about the VOW. I can see why people would hate it, but I don't know. I just loved it. So far, I'm the only one I know that didn't despise it, let alone enjoy it. Have a great day!!!

Looks like a fun goal, and I think you should get the books if you really want to. I really like the swinsuit, and those wooden spoons. I think your idea of having a picture so you won't forget is great. Love you Hugs
