Wish List...28th Birthday!

Thursday, July 7, 2011

It's July, meaning it's birthday month lovelies... the 17th to be exact! I know some people cringe at the thought of turning a year older, yet, I like to take a look back at what all I accomplished in year's past and it reminds me I am just "maturing" like a fine wine and refining my tastes, right? Yeah, I'll just keep telling myself that.
What better way to put myself in the celebratory spirit than when Mom , Jeff, and family relatives emailed me asking for birthday present requests and ideas--don't mind if I do...here's a little peak at some of the fun little bits and pieces I am hoping to get:
(1) Ray Ban Wayfarers--classic and stylishly chic...love these puppies and would love to own a "nice" pair of sunglasses that didn't come off the rack at Le Target--let's be honest, I don't have the best reputation for taking care of nice glasses so we'll see
(2) Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch--I've got my Swiss watch I wear everyday, but I am looking for more of a statement piece for my left arm...something like this would be lovely!
(3) Any item from our wedding registry that wasn't fulfilled...crystal or small kitchen electrics and serving pieces--I don't care. Heck, I want that PB Claro Cake Stand like there's no tomorrow!!
(4) Home Office Desk Chair...if I am ever going to get serious about finishing this room, I need a chair. This is essential...Ballard, come to my rescue!
(5) Figure Eight Necklace via Anthropologie...ahhh, beautifully delicate
yet still substantial to wear with almost anything
(6) Cookbooks--I'm expanding my collection and I'd love to have more...Sandra Lee, The Barefoot Contessa--I love them all!!
(7) Sparkly Tom's Shoes...fun footwear for a great cause! Big win in my book.

What's your favorite things to ask for when your birthday rolls around? I know I'm growing up slowly but surely, but can't help act like a kid again when present time rolls around each year...we celebrate in style and I have some fun activities lined up--woo hoo!!

  22. I love that necklace!! Also, as for sunglasses, I used to have the absolute worst luck with them--I would break them, lose them, etc..BUT, since I've invested in an expensive pair I take super good care of them and if you get them as a gift you'll be even more likely to want to take care of them!

  23. I love making wish-lists, especially for holidays/birthdays! I feel the same way about sunglasses, I'm so nervous to invest in a expensive pair when I'm constantly scratching my Target ones! If you get them let me know how it goes :)
