Happy Friday! It's officially my birthday weekend; which is slightly less exciting than it use to be, but it's still a cause for celebration! My friend, Shelly, recently shared her Christmas list, so I thought today I would share a few things that would be FAVORITES of mine if I happen to receive them for my birthday...or Christmas...heck, I don't want to be greedy, my family can use this list for gift ideas for Valentines, Mother's Day, or even my wedding anniversary. Take as long as you need to fulfill my wants.
Top Ten Things On My Birthday/Christmas/Valentines/Mother'sDay/Any Day List (In No Particular Order)
I'm obsessed with the signs and mugs that my friends have made with theirs, and I would love to have my own to make some things for our house, and for gifts.
2. Camera Lens:
I got my first "big girl" camera last year for Christmas and I have loved using it and experimenting with it. I'm not exactly sure what lens I need; but if you're reading this, Santa, I want the same lens as my cousin Stephanie.
When I'm running errands on a daily basis, picking up kids, dropping by the grocery store, etc, I don't usually carry a purse, but trying to manage a wallet and a phone is disasterous, and I usually end up dropping one. I need a wristlet that I can use as a wallet, but can fit my iPhone into, too. #BasicMomStruggles I also like a Michael Kors and Kate Spade version. If you have one you love that fits an iPhone 6 with a Lifeproof case, please share!
Originally I wanted a Fitbit, but then I found this Garmin that keeps track of the time, and does all the basics of the Fitbit for a slightly lower price. Now, my heart is set on a Garmin Fitness tracker.
I read a review of this book recently on another blog, it sounded like a modern day book of manners for entertaining. One of my goals in 2017 is to read more; I'd like to start with this one!
This is one of those splurges that I like to indulge in every once in a while. For some reason, I never buy Philosophy for myself, but LOVE it as a gift.
7. Volcano Candle from Anthropologie (or Amazon)
I love the scent of this candle, and the coziness that a candle brings to a home.
I'm pretty sure I am going to buy myself this for myself with my amazing Kendra Scott birthday discount (if you don't know about this discount, ask me), so if you're looking to buy me something, disregard. Kendall will be happy; I'll stop borrowing her necklace all the time now. And look, Kendall, we can twin! I mean, what 16 year old doesn't want to twin with her mom? :)
I LOVE over-sized, pretty mugs! These are perfect for my morning coffee, and my sleepy time tea each evening.
10. And, what I am really hoping to do sometime in December...go see...
I'm slightly obsessed with the Kennedy story, and cannot wait to see this movie! I'm actually having a hard time finding a theater that is showing it locally, though. If any of my local friends know of one, let me know. Birthday celebration sure change when you get older, right?
So, there you have it,
Mark friends and family, my Birthday/Christmas/Valentines/Mother's Day wishlist.
In case you missed my blog lately:
My Tuesday Talk was all about our Thanksgiving break; and I shared a delicious and easy party food you need to make this Christmas.
On Wednesday, I shared my Thoughts On Christmas Movies. Some we like to cuddle up and watch each Christmas...and one movie you should definitely avoid!
I'll see you back here next week...when I'll be another year older!
