If I had a million dollars

Ok, so I don't have a million dollars, but I do have Christmas money burning a hole in my pocket. I promised myself this year that I would think about what I wanted to get before I just started spending. I've already bought this great bag:

It came today, and I love it!

Yesterday I registered for a 6-week long photography class. I got my camera last year and have been meaning to learn how to really use it. I don't want to become a professional or anything, but I'd like to be able to take great pictures of my kids. My sister is taking a class next weekend, and she really inspired me to go ahead and take a class. Hopefully you'll get to see my pictures improve.

After registering for the class, I got excited about photography and found this on

It's a camera strap slipcover. They make slipcovers and actual straps. I don't know if I'll actually get one or not, but they're super cute. My sister-in-law got one for her birthday, and I loved it.

I still haven't quite decided what else to buy. I've thought about an iPod Touch because I'm dying to beat my brother-in-law at Words with Friends.

This storage ottoman has also caught my eye:

I think it would fit great in our bedroom. We need a little extra storage and a place to put the decorative pillows (instead of just on the floor).

Speaking of storage benches, here's the one we put together last weekend:

Sorry it took me so long to get a picture of it. We still need to get more drawers to go in it, but I really like it. I think it'll be the perfect place to store toys when the babies get a little bigger.

So, there's the wrap-up of my Christmas. Is there anything you've found lately that you think I need to have? Please share!
