4. An elevated blender that works fast - I actually already have the Blendtec, and I love it. WORTH IT! Blends smoothly the first time around (even tons of frozen stuff), removes so much of the frustration I had with my regular blender - and time. I can't recommend it enough.
5. Comfort on my back patio - this is the season that all I want to do is relax outside, especially since we have a great backyard that my kids can run wild, but our outdoor space is not relaxing. Our whole yard needs work (landscaping, organization, patio feng shui), but I want to start with a pair of chaise lounges.
