Birthday Wishes

This week I turn 26, which means I'm officially on the downslope of my 20s. Does that make me too old for a wishlist? I don't think so.

Canon PowerShot S95
I have yet to be bitten by the DSLR bug — right now I just want a new point-and-shoot to upgrade from our 4-year-old Canon PowerShot SD750, which doesn't even support remote capture.

Short, skinny black pants for work
My only pair of black trousers is a wide-legged pair from Banana Republic. I'd love a different silhouette that I could wear with either heels or flats. My mother-in-law wore a nearly perfect pair to our early Thanksgiving on Saturday. She said they were from Ann Taylor, and I think they may have been these.

Knee-high cognac boots


I've been on the hunt for a pair of these, with no luck so far. It's complicated by the fact that any shaft larger than 14 inches in diameter will leave my bird legs swimming. These Miz Mooz Flynns may be a possibility.

A winter hat from Queen of Hats

(Queen of Hats)
My only winter hat is a bright green knit cap from the Gap Factory Store. It's not exactly appropriate for work or going out. Queen of Hats is a charming local boutique, but some of their felt hats run a bit more than I'd spend on myself.

A cooking class

(The Black Tie Company)
This is Goal #18. A lot of cooking classes seem to have little to no relation to home cooking, but it appears that several of Black Tie's classes would actually be helpful — subjects like risotto, Latin-influenced cooking and the basics of French cuisine. Yum!
