My Wish List

I like lists. It's who I am. Lists and calendars. So by no means is this a hint to my parents for my upcoming birthday, it's just a list of things I would like or read about on other's blogs. And since the last time Ray and I bought each other birthday gifts (his is 4 days after mine) or Christmas gifts, the year started with the number 1, this isn't a hint to him either. We just don't do gifts to each other. We would much rather use our money on gifts for the kids.

But in the event that I a) buy a lottery ticket, and b) win the lottery, I can go straight to this post and hit PURCHASE ALL and be happy.

Garmin Forerunner 305
Top of my list. Instead of planning out my runs prior to heading out, I could just go, and this nifty device would tell me how far I have run. HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE.

A Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. Yes, I enter every.single.contest on Pioneer Woman's site to win this, but considering thousands of people enter, my chances are slim. Pathetic, really that I don't own a food processor. I have a few recipes I want to try (like homemade pesto) that require this. And no, using a mixer doesn't work. Believe me, I have tried.

Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

This is a pretty cool lense, end of story (not really end of story, I guess I should add it's a really expensive lense that would definitely require a lottery win).

A Spibelt

I plan on eating a Gu or some sort of energy gel every 45 minutes during the half marathon WHICH IS LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY. They are only giving out a gel at mile 8 on the race, so this nifty belt holds 5 Gu packs, keys, phone, etc.

A Virginia Tech Jersey

Just because I want one. And that reason is good enough.

I'm a list lover, too :) All the things on your list are pretty cool. I'm drooling over the lens.

Hi! I just did a half marathon and I bought one of these:

I loved it! There's even a pouch that can hold your fuel.

Have fun!!
