My ‘If I had a million dollars’ wish list

The other day Mr. Weekly Bite and I were fantasizing.  Fantasizing that we had all the dinero in the world and could buy anything we wanted whenever we wanted.  So we asked the question: If you had a million dollars to buy to your hearts content what would you buy?  If we were gazillionaires, of course we would donate to our favorite charities… but this is our fantasy list.  Enjoy.

My pick:

1) Pistachio Green & Cream 1968 Vespa Scooter

Isn’t it so pretty! I’ve had a thing for Vespa scooters for many years now.  There’s something about them that I love.  Whenever Mr. Weekly Bite asks me what I want for a birthday for Christmas present I say this.  The thing is I don’t want just any vespa.  It has to be this one.

At least I can fantasize 🙂

Mr. Weekly Bite’s Pick:

2)  Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Mr. Weekly Bite has an unnatural obsession with this vehicle.  This was the car he drove his last two years in college.  He sold it after he graduated and has regretted it ever since.

My Pick:

3) Canon 5D Mark ii

This is way more camera then I will ever need or know what to do with.  But this is a fantasy list, right?  I’ve had the pleasure of shooting with this camera, and trust me, it is dreamy.  I highly doubt I will ever own this camera.  Right now I have my eyes on the 7D, which will probably happen in like 30 years.

Mr. Weekly Bite’s Pick:

4) Magnum PI’s Ferrari

I rolled my eyes when he pulled this image up on my computer.  But this is a fantasy list, so I guess he’s allowed 😉

My Pick:

5) Unlimited shopping spree every single day for the rest of my life to these two stores

I love everything J Crew makes.  Even the questionable stuff.  And Anthropologie, well, I could easily set up camp in that store if I needed to. Having a unlimited amount of spending every day for the rest of my life at these two stores would make me one happy lady 🙂

Mr. Weekly Bite’s Pick:

6) The Magnum PI Helicoptor

Again with the Magnum PI!  Apparently he’s obsessed with Magnum PI.

My final pick:

7) Madsen Cargo Bike

I’m beyond obsessed with this bike!  I love everything about it.  The look, the efficiency, the fact that it has a high cuteness factor… it does it all for me.

I can picture myself on a warm summer day with a cute sundress on, M buckled in the back as we make our way to the farmer’s market.  Remember – this IS a fantasy 😉

So there you have it.  That’s our fantasy wish list.  If you had a million dollars, what would be on your list?

Happy Day Dreaming 🙂

    How cute is that bike? I’ve never seen anything like it. On my wish list would definitely be a house cleaner. And said house cleaner must be present to clean my kitchen every time I finish cooking or baking something. 🙂

    A taco truck stationed outside my house. I can’t help it. I am from TX and could eat a taco for every single meal of the day, every single day of the year.

  19. Estela - Weekly Bite said on January 13, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    A taco stand would be a dream! I would be happy if they just had one in our neighborhood 🙂

  20. Melanie Flinn said on January 13, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    You are funny. That bike is pretty cool…..not sure it would be on my list, but looks fun 😉 I am right there with you re JCrew & anthro!

    Love your blog! Just stumbled upon it & will be back.

    You are adorable…and so Modern-Old School. If I had a million? I’d finish my basement and put in a real home gym and a real home office. I’d also give my kitchen a makeover…like one with a freezer that has a working ice maker.

    Or, I could just move and buy a house on the beach somewhere. 😉

    I love this post; who doesn’t love to dream?
    I would love a top of the line kitchen to cook in, with excellent lighting.
    I would buy every camera lens I could even if I don’t know how to use them.
    And I would get the dog of my dreams which I’m putting off doing until I know I can really take care of it.
