Things I Want Vs. Things I Need

One of the things I decided to work on about myself was realizing the difference between things I want and things I need. I have come to the truth that there are very few things I need. I want to tell you this has saved me a bundle of money. You see I really don't need that new chopper that Vince, the Sham Wow guy, is peddling. Come to think of it I don't need a Sham Wow nor do I need a Snuggie. Honestly if someone wanted to send me these things for FREE I would gladly accept them and then come on here and lord it over everyone else that I got them for FREE. Only no one has been beating down my door to give me anything. Oh I follow the Pioneer Woman religiously and I try so very hard to win just one little item off her blog. I mean I would love to have a copper colored Kitchen Aide Mixer or a brand spankin new Nikon camera, but again it ain't happening. I think she see's my moniker and says "nope I'm not choosing her". I really do think it's personal, but I'm not paranoid or anything.

I digress the reason I'm writing this is because I have found something that I think I both need and want. You see Miss Priss, my granddaughter, is having a birthday. I am going to her birthday party 2000 miles away. Now I haven't gotten to spend Christmas with her or Thanksgiving or even hunt for Easter eggs. I have missed all of these things. I am thinking that I NEED to video her Birthday Party. I mean think about it had I had a video camera last year when I made her the Exploding Barbie Cake I could have shared it with all of you.

Anyway I was over at Two of A Kind Working on A Full House and she is giving away this really cool little camera by Creative Labs.

Now I'm not going to lie to you I don't think I have a snowball chance in hell to win but I just thought this little camera was too cool. I also think this is something I really really need. I mean I'm not sure my life will go on without it. So I'm thinking if one of you would like to just send me this camera for FREE then it would solve all my problems right? In the meantime I'm going to go sign up to win it and cross my fingers. What ever you do, don't go sign up to win this camera and spoil my chances.

*******BREAKING NEWS*********It has come to my attention that I am in fact a weener, I mean winner! I won over at Bliss. WoooHooo! Tarjay here I come. Thanks Staci!

I do love our little video cam like that. It's what we took the video on when we ziplined!

Well, I *was* gonna enter, but you've made me feel guilty, so I'll just stand back and watch you win.
Good Luck, and I hope you get what you both want and need!
Fingers crossed...

Congrats on winning! I'm hoping to be a weiner at one of PW's contests someday, but so far, no luck. If it's meant to be, it's meant to. Enjoy your new camera, and your granddaughter's birthday!
