Things I Want That I Love (AKA someone gimme $300, stat!)

Have you guys ever heard of Mindy Kaling? She's an actress/comedienne/writer on NBC's "The Office" (she plays Kelly Kapur). My friend Nicole and I have celebrity girl crushes on her, and dream about being a trio of best friends on zany adventures. No, we're not 12 years old shut up. :)

Anyway, Mindy used to blog about stuff she bought that she loves. It inspired me to start posting here and there about items in a similar fashion. But, since I'm not a famous actress (yet?!? ha, please), I'm twisting it and writing about my virtual wish list. Maybe an anonymous benefactor will just send me everything. That happens sometimes. Right?

All-Clad 51125 All Clad Stainless-Steel 12-Inch Fry Pan with Lid According to America's Test Kitchen (they know things), this is the best one out there out of every brand...and it has the price tag to prove it! It's available on Amazon for $90, and at fancy department stores for double that price. I recently purchased a cookbook in which every recipe (including desserts) is cooked in the aforementioned fry pan. It would be fiscally imprudent of me to NOT buy this pan.

The Lenox "Chirp" holiday accent plates.  The original Lenox "Chirp" china is what my husband and I (or just I, who are we kidding) registered for when we got married. I love the design, it's vintage, yet modern, Asian inspired, colorful, and definitely NOT boring like the china everyone else had on their wedding registry. We only use it for holidays, so these new accent plates would be perfection for Christmas. Granted, I've never hosted a Christmas dinner because I still live in a crappy apartment in a different state than both of our families, but that's neither here nor there. When that day comes, I want to be prepared with fancy plates, darn it!
