What I wanna buy Wednesday - 06.01.11

Oh hai there blog friends! Once again, I must apologize for being sooo absent. work is so crazy right now, because {as I mentioned a little bit ago} I am doing a rotational assignment in addition to my normal workload in order to possibly get a promotion at the end of this year. This promotion would mean A LOT to the Dennifers. What with all our {ahem} added expenses (read: Baby AJ).

Annnywho, the summer is upon us here in Northern VA & IDK why, but it's kicked me back into a DIY'ing mood! I finally finished up my spring summer DIY wreath & I can't wait to show it off to all of you - likely later this week, I'll need to upload the pics first. Also, my munchkin is now 7 - YES SEVEN months old. Ugh, I can't believe it. Time flies way way too fast. More on her cuteness also coming up soon in her 6-7 month recap. I really need to get on the ball & start doing these monthly again, but the only time I have to blog is either at work, which right now, is not an option &/or at night when the munchkin falls asleep. But I am determined...I love blogging & I will get my mojo back! I know, I know, I keep saying it, but I really do try to get back on the ball & then time just escapes me.

Okay, so now back to the purpose of this post - my favorite weekly feature: "What I wanna buy Wednesday," woot. I have gotten a lot of good feedback on this feature, so I'm thinking of making it a weekly linky party. I'd love to see what all of my blog friends come up with & have you all link back here! WDYT? Would you do it? Who doesn't love fantasizing about the things we'd love to buy? In any event, here's my top 5 things I'd love to buy this week:

1. A large ottoman with storage space:

A certain someone will be getting mobile here soon, as such, the Dennifers are in the process of assessing our baby proofing our casa de Dennifer so that our little munchkin doesn't hurt herself once she starts crawling 7 walking running all up & thru here. Our current coffee table from Target is nice, but is not exactly baby friendly. It has sharp edges & I'm not really into the look of those table edge thingys (although, we'll likely have to use these in a few other places regardless), so I suggested to the hubbs that we buy a nice {soft}, stylish yet functional ottoman to replace our coffee table. And, he actually agreed with me! We just missed the memorial day furniture sales, but maybe we'll be able to catch a 4th of July sale somewhere so we can pick up one of these babies!

2. A couple large storage baskets:

Again, a certain someone has made it necessary that I purchase large baskets for toy & misc. storage so that my living room can avoid looking like a playroom! I have been searching online for nice looking & most of all, affordable baskets for our main level - LR/DR area & found these darlings at Crate & Barrel. I think I'll most likely put them under the entryway table that I have between the living & dining rooms. I might even get a smaller one to put under one of our side tables! I heart basket storage & you can't beat the price!

3. PBK Beach Wrap:

Can you see a theme?! Most of the stuff I wanna buy has something to do with my little munchkin! PBK actually just had a sale on these wraps that I missed out on, but I think their beach wraps are totally cute. I think I'll wait to see if they have an end of season sale on these & maybe grab one up then. We are going on our first family vacation to Orlando in November, so this would be perfect for that. Also, someone is a big time water baby & loves the pool:


Buuuut, if they don't go on sale again, I doubt I'll buy one. I can't bring myself to spend over $30 (after S&H) on a towel! Very cute though. :)

4. Waterproof Labels for Baby AJ Stuff:

Sigh. My little munchkin will be entering the world of daycare here soon (more on that later), so I'm trying to stock up on everything we'll need to send along with her everyday. Could I buy a label maker & make plain labels? Sure, but what's the fun in that?! I LOVE Cherry Hill Designs cute labels & they have such a huge assortment to choose from & best of all, they are very affordable! Oh & one more great thing about these labels - they are waterproof, so you can easily wash whatever you stick these on without worrying the label will come off in the dish or clothes washing machine!

5. Victoria's Secret PINK lounge pants:

I always make sure to stock up during the Victoria's Secret semi-annual sale, which is going on NOW - go check it out!! Well, in my most recent VS shopping splurge, I decided to try out a pair of these lounge pants & I am totally in lurve with them. They are comfy & lightweight, but still stylish enough to wear out of the house if I need to, woo. The perfect lounge pants. These babies get 2 thumbs up from me & I'd love to grab another pair!

So that's WIWB this week, how about you?! (Don't forget to let me know if you'd be interested in a weekly link party to this feature, I'd love to hear your feedback!) 'Till next time!
