Where do I start??

I go through times where I want to throw out everything and start over...from the beginning.

I have a fantasy of having a vanity like some of these in our master bathroom. Our house is not even a year old, so that's not happening anytime soon.

I'd love to have new bedroom furniture someday, but I'm really happy with the armoire that my parents gave us the first Christmas after we were married and the headboard that I designed (term used loosely!!) and my Daddy built. I'd settle for a new comforter or quilt for our bedroom.

I need a new hair dryer. And yes, I really need one. My current hairdryer isn't that old and works great, when it works. You have to wiggle it and jiggle it and hold it just right.

In the kitchen, I need a new crock pot (because I broke the crock that goes with the pot) and I'd like to have a new complete set of cookware and dishes.

I need to do something with a wall in the dining room. I've been looking around and have lots of ideas. For some reason, my heart wants white dishes on our "Stucco" walls. It's a leftover dream from the dining room in our old house when my mom bought me a few cute white plates at the antique mall.

The thing that I'll be marking off of my want/need list first is a steam mop. It's not the most fun or exciting, but the hardwood floors are kicking my butt and they never look clean enough to me. I can't wait to get one!!!

I returned all of the dinnerware we got when we were married because we needed other stuff a lot more. I just bought an inexpensive set at Target but only got 6 piece setting. The stuff is disappearing though I can only account for 3 broken pieces. Suppose it's growing legs just like my forks that are disappearing.

If I could get everything I wanted....

Let me know how that steam mop works out. I was looking at one the other day in Target.

We have a list of things we want for the house. I think we all have moments where it feels like we need EVERYTHING at the same time.
