Need:Vintage Vornado Window Unit -- I first fell in love with this fan at a super posh retro-mod store in Denver. With a hefty price tag of $300 I had to part ways with the beauty, as she was more of a greed than a need. Cue the superhero music; boyfriend to the rescue! My fella found one on eBay that had never been used, in mint-condition, with the original box, for less than half the in-store price!!! Greed meet need.
Read:The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary by Andrew Westoll -- You had me at Chimps... oh and the Jane Goodall recommendation! This book was recently purchased and is at the top of my to-read list. I think there has always been a little bit of my heart tucked away in the forest of Tanzania among the wild chimps. I'll just have to go someday to reclaim it.
Greed:Meadow Lark Farm Dinners: Boulder, CO -- This precious reclaimed school bus doubles as a kitchen on wheels and visits a number of farms surrounding the Denver/Boulder area. Each new farm location provides an opportunity for local farms to feature their seasonal harvest in specially handcrafted meals. Can you imagine? A crisp fall night, walking through the fields, twinkling lights, a full glass of red wine, and an absolute celebration of seasonal flavors! It's THE perfect fall date night. With a high but very worthy price tag, and tickets that are sold on a lottery system, this greed will not be a reality this fall. Sadly, the season is already sold out. Le sigh!
