I tend to get stuck on something I want… and then obsess over it until I get it. A good example is my new lens, the 50mm f/1.4… It was first recommended to me by my current boss when I took my first ever photography class. I obsessed over it since February, and eventually got one. I did all kinds of research and looked at several other lenses, and ended up at square one. I love the lens, but now I’m wanting a new camera… A full frame camera that will be able to utilize the lens the way it was meant to be.
This baby is currently my obsession. A Canon 5D Mark II. The price is a bit steep, and I’m not willing to pay it right now. However, I know that I’ll be obsessing over it for the next several months until I can get my hands on one.
Not only this, but I’ve also been obsessing over a new ring… I know that a lot of people out there think I’m an idiot and should be happy with the ring I have, and I AM. However, both Husband and I believe that if we had the means we would have bought a much more elaborate ring when we were getting married. My ring is not small by any means, but it is simple, and I want fancy. I’m a girl… can you blame me?!
I LOVE the halo settings. Husband and I both loved a simple halo setting when we originally started looking at rings, except the ring we both loved was $20k… for two students living off of a retail pay, and a new job that (for the hubs) we didn’t want to overdo it. But now, we’re making considerably more than what we were making back in the day. And when I went back to looking at rings, I figured I’d go all out, and get something a bit fancier then the simple halo I liked so much.
This is the ring that I wanted… but I’m kind of thinking that I like the round stone better… it is a bit fancier.
My final and possible most expensive obsession right now is a house. Since we decided to buy a home when we move to Arizona, I’ve been house shopping online. I’ve found several that we love the floor-plans of. Houses and decorating. Husband and I agreed that we’d get a new home, and have the builder do only the minimal work that we cannot do ourselves, like hardwood floors throughout and gourmet kitchen. Everything else we’ll be doing ourselves, just because we really enjoy the process of decorating and updating.
I am dying for a light kitchen. I love, the light cabinets that have that worn country look. And I defiantly want a gas stove and a double oven.
We will have an office/library in our home, since I’ll be working from home. I’m thinking the floor to ceiling bookshelves are a MUST.
HA! I just had to get these out of my system, because I have been driving myself mad thinking about all the things I want. My NOW monster is coming out again, and it really needs to find a corner and go sit quietly until we pay off all the things we need to.
For now, I’m going to keep pinning and lusting and paying off bills … so please forgive me if my posts are a little dreamy for the next few months.
