In just under a month I will be turning the big 2-6. Usually birthdays are not a big deal for me. I like things low-key (which I am sure is obvious). My dad's birthday is 4 days before me so we usually combine our birthdays together for one family dinner. It typically falls on St. Patty's Day so my mom makes up a full scale St. Patty's Day meal. So good. Nothing gets me drooling like crispy potato pancakes.
The hubbs usually asks for what I want and I say, "nothing" but secretly hoping he will get inspired and go on a shopping spree to spoil me. Does not happen, but he always gets me something very nice.
I have been catching myself surfing the net looking for things I can ask for from the hubbs and the family. For the past couple of birthdays, I have been getting house stuff but I am kind of over that whole thing. I am not trying to sound spoiled (which I definetly am not). I want something for me... not something for the dining room wall or for mowing the lawn (okay that was a bit exaggerated). People usually ask me what I want but I feel weird about giving them my list, but I think that is the way I am gonna roll from now on. I know I appreciate it when someone is direct with me on what they want. This goes for Christmas too. I know I may be too old to actually ask for things, but the reality is, my family is going to continue getting me gifts so they might as well be what I was wishing for, right? So in no particular order, here are some items which have tickled my fancy.
J.Crew Sweater Dress
Kate Spade purse
Tiffany & Co necklace
Cozy GAP sweater for Spring
