1. A telephoto lens for my sooooooo nice new camera

2. A new keyboard the legs are broken and the space bar sticks.

3. A new nice electric can opener.

4. An airplane ticket for fun.

5. A new iron it is starting to spit and that is not nice for an iron to do.

6. A new Comforter for my bed I got paint on mine but it doesn't show much.I like this one do you?

7. A new microwave--Is it safe to use if metal is showing through the lining?

8. Some e-books for my Ipod. New territory for me.

9. Some extra fun dates for Hubby and I.


10. Save towards a new Dining Room set

11. Save towards new counter tops

Okay... hmm... I'm a really indecisive person, so maybe you should ask the next person. LOL. I would say go for the new keyboard and new iron first... they seem essential. But personally... go for the fun things! Hahaha.

Gattina said...

Ask for more money and buy it all, lol !

Sandy Carlson said...

I vote for the lens! Good luck.

Happy New Year girl!!! :)

Spend it on personal stuff that will make you happy.

I would do flowers for the garden of course and if you plan on being in your house for a while then definately the countertops, but if not then airline tickets to someplace FUN! You lucky dog to have so much to choose from is awesome.
PS... I hope you are feeling better.

I like the comforter -- and I'm impressed with your camera.

txmommy said...

wow! what fun choices! I WOuld go somewhere!

Greatfullivin said...

I would save some for an essential, I would give some away, and I would buy the flowers for the garden so I could enjoy my gift for a long time to come! Have a great 2008!

Morgan Leigh said...

Ummmm....er....I would go for the microwave or the lense for the camera.....but I don't know...

:) Happy TT!

Well it depends on what you're looking for... practical or fun. Since it's a Christmas present I would say a photography class, date nights or, e-books... but you really do need a new keyboard so maybe that. I was very grateful for my space bar when I got home!

MissMeliss said...

Oh, I'd go for the plane tickets - nothing beats travel.

ellen b. said...

Oh man those are all such great choices! Yikes! Forget the iron or can opener. Get something more exciting or something like the date or travel! happy 2008...

Dont make me get out my flying Monkeys! said...

Im all about the photography class!

Nice 13!
Come visit my delicious posting! I'm sorry if you are on a diet for 08, but I couldn't resist this post!

Lori said...

I say to use it for whatever you want the most. Start with something that you really, really want and go from there:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

The Gal Herself said...

I vote for #8 or #9. Let us know what you finally decide (and thanks for visiting my TT)

Chelle Y. said...

I would spend it on something that will last a long time, so you can enjoy it more. (Dates are memories that will last too).

Danielle said...

Ooo...that would be such a tough decision!!!

Buy Michael Webb's 300 Creative Dates for your ipod, take your husband on a couple, and use your third wish to get three more wishes?! LOL

Happy New Year!

Danielle said...

And I hope you start feeling better :-)

jenn said...

I want new counters too!
Happy tt!

Nicholas said...

I'd go for the keyboard or the plane ticket!

Pamela Kramer said...

Get as much as you can with the money you get. That lens would be hard to give up! LOL - Happy TT

Linda R. Moore said...

I'd probably schlep it into a savings account for now. ;)

Thanks for visiting my TT. :)

Darla said...

Oh, since it's a gift, go for the nice stuff--I'd go for the extra fun dates, myself.... well, I'd think about it, and then I'd probably go for practical, like the keyboard and the iron, or saving up for the furniture or countertops. LOL

Hope your cold's better soon!

Janet said...

The lens or the airline ticket is TOTALLY what I'd go for!

Jenny McB said...

Umm, could get the keyboard for a very reasonable price and then lens. Definitely go fun! Happy New Year.

MamaArcher said...

hmm so many choices, I would vote for some extra fun dates with the hubby!!

DrillerAA said...

If you decide on the keyboard, make sure you go to a wireless keyboard and mouse. I love them.
The photo class would be a great investment. I have a soooooo nice Nikon D80 and I am investing in a PhotoShop Elements class, but I would love to take a photography class as well.

Happy TT

Jennie said...

oooooooooooooooh... the option! wow! do something fun that will last... i always like to "see" what my money will buy...

good luck!

forgetfulone said...

That is way too hard to decide! I would love a plane ticket, a new dining room table, new countertops, a photography class, dates with my husband. I can't decide!

melissa said...

Lens, then countertop. But I have counter-lust right now so I'm biased.

Regina said...

Well if you are practical, then something that would benefit the family.. you know an iron, appliances, etc.
But I personally am trying to remember to do something for me on a regular basis, so in a case like this clothes, jewelry, travel...you know something for YOU!

Blessings, Regina

Mitchypoo said...

I'd buy a plane ticket and go to Holland and buy some tulips bulbs! Happy TT and thanks for visiting!

Sharon said...

Wow, you've got a lot of fun choices there! It would be hard to choose!

Nicole Austin said...

I vote for something fun, like #4, 8, 9 or 12. You can't buy something practical with gift money. Gotta get something you'll really enjoy!

Dane Bramage said...

Get a combination microwave keyboard and can opener. I don't know where you would find such a thing but I am all about value!

Thanks for visiting my T13!

Mrs. Monkey said...

Wahoo for you!!! I had to scroll down for like forever just to tell you what I think. I almost forgot twice. You are having a good comment day.

Ok. I'd put it in the drawer of my nightstand, no interest, but no temptation either. Watch the ads and get me keyboard when they go on sale or go to a thrift/second hand store to get one. Then I'd save for those gnarly counter tops. That granite looks BE-A-U-TEE-FUL.

JustRandi said...

Ohhh Shopping!! I love the new lens and the comforter.
I'd definitely NOT get the iron, or the can opener. No fun there.

Tink said...

No things that have to be replaced, that's not the purpose of Christmas money! :-) I'd go for the lens and books!
Thanks for visiting my TT; sorry I'm this late in returning the favour!
