Birthday Wish List

My Birthday is approaching. I will be 27 on October 5th, which is a not as scary as turning 25 was. I know, I am still young. But having a hard time realizing how fast my life is flying by. But the hubby just turned 30 and seems to be handling it pretty what's 27! :)

Since the hubby and I are on a plan to pay off all our debt in 2 years and then buy a new house we haven't been spending money. So I am excited for my birthday to come along and to maybe get some of those items I have been eyeing. So here I go.

I am redoing my kitchen and dining room (although I have no time right now) But these are pretty dishes I found that I think would go really great with the "idea" I have in mind. They are at one of my favorite stores, Bed Bath and Beyond. Plus I always have 20% coupons to use.

How cute is the antique flour grinder? It would look nice in my "new" kitchen. It is an item at my favorite etsy shop. The best part, it's only $4.00.

Philosophy Pure Grace Perfumed Body Lotion

This smell is intoxicating for me. I just keep smelling my hands!

A J.C. Penney's Gift Card

I have lost more weight and all of my professional work clothes are now falling off me. Girls at work keep asking me why I don't just buy new pants. Oh if it were only that easy.

I would also love a Charlotte Russe gift card. I can once again fit into their hip teen clothes. See 27 isn't so bad. Plus they have great costume jewelry for cheap cheap.

Last but not least I need new fall candles. My favorite is the Spiced Pumpkin, but while online I found a maple syrup pancake scent. I would really love to have that also. Can't you just smell it now. I would burn it in the morning so the hubby would think I made pancakes only to find out it was just my new candle. Ha ha, that's mean.


  1. Thanks for the birthday hints!!

    Love those dishes!

    Brian bought me Philosophy Amazing Grace over a couple years ago and I just eeked out the last of it a couple months ago. Sad day!! I love that their lotion feels light and the scent lasts all day.

    Fall candles scents are my favorite - they make the house sooo cozy. I haven't smelled the maple pancakes - but that one sounds great.

    I have to say I am jealous of your weight loss. Ha ha. The scales have been creeping the other way for me. I am seriously going to have to get back on track!

    Love Elaine

  2. B -- I need to see new pictures of your skinny new self!

    Great job losing weight! I would love to lose the last of my baby weight before we start working on another baby....Oh well, I guess I have a few months to keep losing....


  3. First of all, thank you for including my shop on your birthday list ;)

    I know what you mean about paying off debt. We never get to spend money (even though I will admit we went crazy last month) I always look forward to my birthday because it is the one day I can just get a little of what I want and not feel guilty about it.

    ...and guess what? My birthday is only 2 days after yours! ...but I will be WAAAAY older than you and your husband :) (and its not too bad)
