Wow Wow Wednesday

I'm really trying to get back on track with my blogging, but it just doesn't seem to be happening very well lately. I jumped back on the Weight Watchers train last week so I've spent a ton of time entering my points into my online points tracker.

I got the late summer 2008
Pottery Barn Kids catalog in the mail Monday and have been salivating over the many things I wish (coveting) I could get for the boys! These are just scratching the surface of the things I would love to have out of the current catalog.

These
backpacks are a little big for Bailey and Maverick right now, but I would love to have them and the matching lunch boxes for Mother's Day Out.

I just love this whole room! The beds and the red tub chair are way up on my wish list, though!

Since we spend a ton of time outside, I've been eyeing kid sized outdoor furniture and I love what Pottery Barn has to offer. This Safari Animal stuff is way cute and so is the Chesapeake stuff.

Unfortunately or maybe fortunately, most of the things I like are sold out! Not that I need to be buying any of these things on my wishlist for the boys. Maybe I'm just dropping hints to the grandparents :o)

Since I'm dropping hints, I might as well add one for myself, right? I've been hung up on these grommet style drapes for a while. My hang up is the reason I haven't bought drapes for our new house because I'm not going to spend the money unless I'm getting exactly what I want. Since I need to cover 3 different windows to the tune of 6 separate drapes at the price of $89 per drape - you can see why this cheapskate, clearance shopper hasn't bought new drapes. That doesn't include the high speed rods that I would want to go with the drapes.

Our music minister's daughter manages a Pottery Barn store in California. I haven't asked the 'Can your daughter get me a discount?' question yet. I've been waiting until I'm serious about making a major purchase which may not ever happen. Just thought I'd share my Wow Wow wishlist with you. Hint Hint!

Have you tried LL Bean for the backpacks? You can get a small one with a monogram for like $25. My mom got one for my nieces and they are really nice.

I love the safari furniture! So cute!

Hey, I was just JCPenney's site and looked at the grommet style valances and that had hundred of grommet panels in all colors. I love that look too. Give it a whirl and they were cheaper than Pottery Barn I know!!!

LL Bean is amazing... They have 100% return policy... even years later... even if you don't like the color anymore! I buy all my boys winter clothes from them since the knees never last!
