It's a BIG birthday year for me...I'm turning 30 in less than two weeks!!! It's kind of hard to believe. It's like King George says though, I still feel 25, most of the time ;) Our trip to Charleston was an early birthday present to me from Juston and he knocked it out of the park for sure. Since Caroline and I share a birthday, we had to take the trip early. So naturally, Juston's birthday duty is complete, unless he wants to get me some Gigi's Cupcakes, but I still make a birthday list every year anyway. One that I usually buy myself everything off of haha. Happy birthday to me!
So here it is; My Dirty Thirty Birthday Wishlist.
I love how classic and timeless Annie Griffin Collections pieces always are and this dress caught my eye as soon as it was released with the summer 2014 line. I typically never buy from AGC unless it's on super clearance during their warehouse sales since they're pricey. But I have gotten some amazing deals from the warehouse sale....like 60-80% off retail. And I'm always trolling eBay, too.
I have turned into a perfume junkie here lately and I love these scents. I'm sort of torn between Dot and Honey. Honey reminds me of summer so I'd love it all year I feel like. It's more subtle. Dot has a really sweet scent that I love as well so I may end up with both. It's good to have choices in life ;)
I love this bag SO MUCH. It's actually sold out in the stripes online, but they have it in dots, which I don't really love as much as the bold stripes, but it's still cute.
Random and a long shot but still on the short list is this Concept2 Rower. Juston and I have talked about getting a rower for the house for quite some time now and this would be my top choice. We don't belong to a gym, so all of our workouts are dome at home, and a lot are Crossfit style, thus rowing would be implemented frequently. We've talked about a treadmill, but for the money, you can run outside for free pretty much year-round here, so it would probably end up sitting more often than not. I found a much cheaper option that would probably get the job done and a middle of the road option that will likely end up going with sometime down the road unless we're able to find one of these from Craigslist or someplace like that.
And last but not least...
I'm in the process of saving up so that I can do a mini-makeover on our front room. I want to paint the walls, change the curtains, add in some new accent pieces and eventually (like a few years from now) get a new couch. I'd also really love to junk the ginormous bachelor monster television that takes up 1/4 of the room. Juston got that piece before we were married, otherwise, it would be in the basement right now. This run is on the list for the mini-makeover taking place over the next few months. I have loved this rug since I saw it quite awhile ago in Ballard's catalog. It's so subtle but elegant and a great neutral so it can be moved around and used in different spaces if ever need be.
So there it is...my birthday wishlist. I'm compiling a post of Caroline's wishlist as well. We typically only get her one bigger gift and maybe two smaller ones. She plays with the simplest of things so it's really a waste to splurge on a ton of things that will likely not be used too much.
I feel like since I'm approaching a milestone birthday I should do something epic to celebrate, but I'm drawing a blank. We've already got Caroline's birthday party planned, so mine takes a backseat to that, but still, you only turn thirty once. I may have to search Pinterest and see what I can come up with.
