things i want tuesday :: books (purchased)


i'm doing my things i want tuesday a day late since yesterday as focused on the little dude's birthday. this week i'm actually featuring things i not only want, but purchased! i haven't received them yet but hope that some of them will be arriving today. i had a $50 amazon gift card that i won on a blog contest which was burning a hole in my e-mail in-box for months. i finally bit the bullet and bought the following three books that were on my list and only ended up paying $6.00 out of pocket! sweet!


i am most excited to get this book. it looks so amazing. the colors alone have me excited to flip through the pages.


i know i've been running my business for 8 years already, but i'm always interested to see if there are any little nuggets of info in these books that i haven't thought of or used yet.

finally, the pioneer woman cookbook. you may remember me mentioning her before when she featured some of my photos on her blog. i've been a fan for a long time. i shared my love for her blog with my aunt who in turn bought her cookbook. i'm not a huge cookbook person so it never even really crossed my mind to purchase it. (sorry pioneer woman!) well, my aunt brought the book with her to thanksgiving so that i could take a peek. let me just say: this is not just a cookbook. it's a work of art. her amazing photos are scattered throughout and it looks more like a coffee table book of fine photography than a cookbook. AND, according to my aunt, her recipes are to die for! sounds like a win, win to me! can't wait to dig through this book.
