Wish List – Part 2

Since my last Wish List a week or so ago, I figured it was time to wish, again.  I can keep dreaming, right?

Items 1 through 5 are here

6. A personal masseuse to come over for weekly house calls.  My entire body back is prone to major issues and I am a massage junkie.  I would love pay Heather or Christin to be on-call.

7. Bedding. Luxurious, amazing, wonderful bedding.   You can never have too many sets of 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets on hand, right?

My bedding is West Elm but I always love new bath + bedding items.


8. More time.

I need to work on Item #4.   At least 6 hours. And that hasn’t been happening unless there are more than 24 hours in a day.

I am so pressed for time, that microwave recipes are my BFFs.

Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes


9. Nearly anything on Etsy

That’s where I got my Camera Bag, but there are tons of other cute things I covet.

10. Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer

I know, I can keep dreaming.

From my last recipe post, Vegan Sloppy “Lentil & Bean” Joes, glad they looked good to you.  At least I satisfied my inner Manwich craving. Thanks for telling me I am not the only one with a Manwich crush, either.  And it’s vegan, too.

Dessert: No-Bake Vegan GF Pumpkin Pie

It’s not really pumpkin pie season, but this is a Wish List post.  Bloggers always wish it was pumpkin season, right?


1. What’s on your wish list?

It’s fun to window shop, internet browse, dream, and wish.

But as I said before, money and material things don’t necessarily make one happy.   It’s important to find happiness in non-material things because a Gucci bag isn’t going to warm your soul for longer than a month or so.  Once that initial hit of retail euphoria wears off, you better have something else that’s going to make you happy.  Like a Kitchen Aid Stand mixer.

2. Weekend plans?

Working, working out, kitchen time, errands, time with Scott & Skylar, and hopefully enjoying the weather, but they are talking rain. Boo!

3. Reader’s Requests? Have any requests or topics you’re interested in hearing more about?

I have been enjoying Angela’s Daily Glo Series, Tina’s Blog Dogs, and Kath’s Home Neat Home series.  None of those have to do with food, and I love them all.

Food & recipes, fitness, shopping, tips, workouts, recipes, you name it, I love hearing what you’d like to see more of!

  1. hey averie!

    woo hoo! it’s the weekend! yipeeeee!

    ah, wish list! thanks for sharing yours.

    massuese – they’re called “registered massage therapists” up here. i just started seeing one regularly again and wow-oh-wow: total awesomeness! thank goodness for wicked insurance coverage on massages. another good part? she’s just a 5-minute walk from home!

    kitchen aid stand mixer: i’ve had one for 10 years now and use it 5 times a year, max. if you’re not a regular baker (I’m not), I wouldn’t recommend getting one. spend your money on more useful appliances, such as an immersion blender (perfect for soups and if it comes with a mini chopper attachment, even better), a spice grinder (perfect for grinding your own flax and spices, e.g. toast cumin seeds and then grind them = heaven), food processor (if one doesn’t already have an almighty vitamix!)

    super-soft sheets: i’m with you on that! i’m super picky about sheets; they HAVE TO me super soft!

    more time: me too!!

    my wish list:

    – a new camera (mine’s 6+ years old and i’m waiting for it to be unrepairable first… sigh… practical me)
    – more time ;-)

    my weekend plans are low key: gym, make granola, drinks with friends.

    requests: hmmm! i’m really happy with what you post (fitness, food, thoughts). i’d be interested in hearing about work-life balance with a young child. speaking of which, skylar looks so grown up now! :-)


  2. Girl, I would be your on-call massage therapist any day!! ;) I just gotta start making the big bucks so I can fly out every month or so to hook you up and enjoy that Cali weather (and your lovely company, of course!) :D

  3. Summer would be the first thing on my wish list right now! Secondly would be to have a TV designer come in and redo my basement for us! I have zero sense of style. LOL Third would be a dog. But we just don’t have the time right now. And we already have 3 cats. :)
