Let’s be honest, we all have something in the back of our mind that we really, really, really want. I’m not talking a new car, house, or vacation. I’m talking something more in our immediate reach. I suppose you could put a tablet/iPad into this category. Even that is often something that many of us would use for professional needs, not just a desire.
Disney fans will likely be familiar with the Dooney & Bourke collection that are made for the parks.
Originally, they were only available at Disney parks and cruises, but now some can be ordered from The Disney Store. I once wrote about saving Pluto thanks to a Dooney. Alas, I did not win, but it was fun trying. While at Walt Disney World, I would stop and swoon over the bags. I could have, maybe should have gotten one, but I was being practical. Of course, I kept taking photos and sharing with my friends on Twitter that often talk about their Disney Dooney & Bourke purchases.
Yes, I even asked Ellen stop in the hall at the Yacht Club to model her cute new bag. It goes so well with her ears don’t you think?
So my question to you is inspired by Disney Dooney & Bourke:
If you were able to splurge on an item you really want, but may not be practical, what is it and why? Remember no house, car, vacation, or item that would be for professional gain.

Oh, those are cute! I bet they have a *cute* price tag, too! LOL! I really, really want a Coach bag. I know it’s totally impractical, but I think a nice, classic bag could be carried for years. I keep my purses forever! And yes, an iPad would be really great, too. And an iPhone. Oh dear…I can’t choose just one!

Those sure are cute! You pose a tough question – I think I’ve been programed to think ‘practical’…so I can’t come up with anything I’d splurge on! :)
Have a great weekend! :)

Well, you know what I bought, but seeing the other pictures, I’m thinking…hmmm, should have bought the other shape/color/style. I guess I need to keep saving for november!
First of all….you go for that Dooney. Not only do you deserve it, you will definitely get your money’s worth out of it. As far as splurge goes, hey, I cut corners left and right just so I can get in that occasional splurge.
Have a great weekend!

NY is quite guilty of buying me anything I ask for. That is why many times I don’t mention frivolous things I might think I need. LOL I do want a few new pairs of Fit Flops which are close to $100 a pair and I really think I need some Fiestaware serving pieces. Perhaps new swingset for the backyard since the one we bought at Walmart started falling apart in less than a year. Ask me before you purchase! ;)

I want a iphone BAD! I could maybe justify it as a blogger “need” but deep down I know it probably wouldn’t impact my blogging. I just want one :) Did I mention, BAD?! LOL.

We really splurged last weekend on a romantic anniversary getaway in Quebec City, but I have no regrets. Sometimes you need a little something for self & sanity, and also for the couple at the helm of the family.
