One of the things on my wish list is to take a day just for myself. I think I would like to lay on the beach all day, get all cleaned up (nails, toenails, hair, etc) and  go out to dinner at a nice restaurant. I wouldn’t mind going downtown to walk around through the shops. I would even love it if I got to sleep in to start the day off. :) I look forward to next Friday when this wish becomes reality!

This week I am wishing I could find some cool apps for my iPhone, iPad and Macbook! Does anyone have any suggestions of Apps I should add to my Wish List?

I realized today that my wish list does not have to be limited to items that I can just buy in the store or online. I have a wish list of things to do, things to buy, things to learn, things to give.

I think when you can actually get past yourself then you’re able to DESIRE or WISH for others to receive. I think the next thing on this Wish List Wednesday should be that I  would love to sponsor another one of the Compassion International children. I am currently sponsoring my little boy, Jhonatan, from Peru. He will be 11 years old in September. I’ve had him since August 2003 so I’ve had the chance to give towards his Christian education and write letters with him about his faith and family. I know right now they are in need of sponsors for some of the older children. The younger ones are so cute and innocent that most people want to sponsor them first so the older ones get over looked. Working in a collegiate environment I see the importance of influencing kids while they are young.

I would challenge you to take some effort to spare $38/month to help sponsor a child this year. I am thankful for the words of love and hope that I receive from Jhonatan and I would love to be able to give to that godly opportunity to another child.

So why is this on the WISH LIST if I have already sponsored a child? Well, I want to sponsor another one. Why is it on the WISH LIST? I hope to get to a place financially to be able to pay for this exciting opportunity. And you wonder what you can do to help? Click on www.compassion.com to learn more about becoming a sponsor.

As I walked around downtown Chicago with Ashley and Kayla on Wednesday we walked quite a few blocks and enjoyed some sites along the way. I think I have decided that the more I am able to financially afford it the more I am going to take advantage of visiting places around the USA. Being in a college I have a huge advantage of meeting people from all over the USA and therefore have a built-in personal tour guide where ever I decide I would like to travel.  Some of the places I shall place on my wish list for this Wednesday’s post would be New York/Manhattan area, California, New Orleans, and New Mexico. So who is up for doing some traveling?

This week’s wish list is something that was inspired tonight while me and Clark were sitting in the Arizona Diamondbacks stadium in Phoenix. I was kind of shocked that he had never been to a Major League Baseball field before or football or anything. I guess I was a little surprised because I have been to quite a few stadiums in the last 8 years. I’ve been to the Indianapolis Colts arena against the Baltimore Ravens and their practice facilities. I have been to Chicago White Sox, Milwaukee Brewers, Atlanta Braves and now the Arizona Diamondbacks stadiums for MLB. I think I would like to add to the wish list to visit as many MLB stadiums as I can while traveling across the US of A.  I don’t have an expiration on attaining this wish list item, but will prioritizes this into any travel plans I might have. I know one of my top will be Wrigley Field in Chicago  – Home of the Cubs!

Until those times come… Here are a few pics from the Arizona Diamonbacks game tonight!

After holding out forever to get Adobe Photoshop CS3, I finally have found some time to play with it and learn it a little better. Now I am 2 versions behind on Adobe Photoshop CS5. I would love to have this program because it removes about 5-10 steps of work due t the pre-set modes to remove, clone, and transform graphics. There are so many options to make a new world of graphics, wordpress designs, etc. The hold back? Mainly the money, but it is now on the wish list which means it has become top priority!

One of the things I have been looking at and thinking about is a Fisheye Lens for my Canon 50D. I use to have a fisheye wide-angle macro lens attachment for my old Canon Rebel which is why I am interested in that again. It is just a fun lens to have that gives you a unique and fun perspective on the picture you’re trying to capture. See some example photos taken with a fish eye lens.

This is one of those items I am saving some change for! What’s on your wish list?

So I am always doing so much work on my computer and I am about to do some traveling so I decided I might need to get me some quality headphones. So I added some Skullcandy Headphones to my WISH LIST recently…

Thanks to my #THUGLIFE partner in crime, @WaziKbabee, who I am going to miss so much… I’m getting the hook up on this sweet pair of headphones. Phoenix and Chicago… here I come! :)

Wish List Item #1…..CHECK!

What should I blog about this summer? As you can tell I struggled to blog this last semester on the topics like Mindful Monday and Why Not? Wednesdays. Too much time and thought to be put in to those topics so I never got around to them because I stayed busy and tired. I hope to spend some more thoughtful time this summer talking through my blog.

Manic Monday – this one does not have a description.

Taste buds Tuesday – Taking a challenge to try new foods at old restaurants or try a new restaurants all together. OR it might be a new recipe I try at home.

Wish List Wednesday – I am always trying to get new gadgets or fashionable outfits and so I am going to start a wish list.

Tourist Thursday – I am going to try to do one touristy thing each week and I will blog about it.

Free on Friday – Free advice, Free resources, Free things to do, Free time

Speak to me Saturday – Talk about something that has spoken to me this week.

Read on! Enjoy the summer!
