I know receiving presents isn't the true meaning of Christmas. But it happens.
I like to think of myself as a practical person in general. Here's whats on my practical Christmas (and in general) gift wish list:
Ive made a few from what i could find from thrift shops but i cant help but swoon a little bit when i see genuine vintage milk glass cake platter. I just cant fathom spending $40+ on a used old one. So appreciate them from afar. I do bake enough to where these would get a lot of good use out them... practical.
A Canon 35mm 1.4 L and 70-200 2.8 L, to be exact. When we film i notice i lean toward the 35mm more than any other lens. And when we are shooting from far, and i need to get up in your grill, the 70-200mm is our go to. Both are a necessity for our company that we currently rent because they are so expensive. Practical.
A Standing Garden Bed!
Sure, i could bend down but that would strain my back. Strap some legs to that garden bed and lets grow our own food without worrying about the dog and gophers invading. Practical!
Im too embarrassed to share with you how bad my current shoes look. My converse, toms and mock moccasins souls are falling out and have holes in the toes. Now i'm not all about overpriced, hipster shoes but they are so comfortable to me. I'm a creature of comfort and i don't care. Practical.
iPhone 4 to go to Verizon!
Macbook Pro 17"!
We want to replace our laptop with the newer Macbook Pro that way we both can be editing at the same time, in separate rooms, on location or while watching TV in the living room. Totally Practical.
Our living room is a addition to the house so it doesn't have a/c or heating vents running through it making it the extreme weather room. We don't have a fireplace in our house either and i miss it so much. What could solve both of these issues? THIS. They even make them with DVD shelves and come in black. Hello new TV stand. Plus i think this will hold June's attention longer than her shadow and keep her from staring attentively at nothing with me telling myself shes just looking at angels. Practical.
And what's at the top of my list...
June becoming a dog lover!
Let me clarify, June loves small dogs. Proof: This picture. This time last year my friend Amanda had her dog live with me and June for about 3weeks and June loved Rico. Its just June doesnt realize how big she is and plays too rough with them and i have to watch her like a hawk. Now, with that said, June HATES dogs her size and larger. Like she turns into Cujo. We have no idea why and i've tried contacting the dog whisperer but he didnt get back to me. We really want to have more dogs but we wont while June is still around and still misbehaves around other dogs. Shes lucky shes so dang cute. EXTREME PRACTICAL.
