what i want wednesday - pinterest edition!

I've been adding things to my wishlist the past couple weeks in preparation for christmas(!!!) but as you can see it's mostly boring things like coffee pots and coats (although isn't that yellow old navy peacoat just so cute? I'll post a picture of it because it's blog-worthy)

So today I decided to do a roundup of things I want from pinterest, because if you're not on pinterest yet, you should be.  Follow me! (or just see all the awesome things I've found without having to sign up.)  There's just so much inspiration all in one place that links back to it's original source so it's easy to create a list of things you want for your living room, for example, and see them all together like a mood board, and be able to decide what looks good together and what doesn't, then when you're ready to buy things just click on them to be taken to the online store.  It's really a great tool but it's also so fun and inspirational.  Here's a list of pretty things I want that I found on pinterest.

Cute wraparound sweater that is no longer available on its website... does anyone know where to get one or one that looks like it? I really really love this sweater.

I've been considering getting a Mac since starting my webs design class last week and hearing my teacher harp on about how if you're going to be in the design field you really need a Mac, and these woodgrain laptop skins are so awesome.

I want everything in this picture.  Such a cute outfit.  The good thing about finding outfits that have been put together on polyvore is that you can see how everything looks together then go to polyvore to find the links to each piece of the wardrobe.

buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwich spicy chicken blue cheese chicken salad sandwich closet cooking recipes
Found on pinterest, via closet cooking
Another fun thing about pinterest is that you can find great recipes... I found this recipe for buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwiches and just had to make them on monday.  and boy were they good! i omitted the blue cheese and carrots though, and just served some ranch on the side for dipping.  if you haven't seen the closet cooking website you're really missing out on great recipes.
