It's My Birthday....

....and I can act weird if I want to! 

Today I turn one year older, but hopefully I do not look a year older! As you get older birthdays are never as exciting, not sure why that is but I'm sure it has something to do with not having fun birthday parties with all your friends and not having a ton of presents to open.  I know that as an adult I can plan a party for myself (or hubby can...hint.hint) and invite all my friends, but I guess I have just never thought to do that.  I think I might do that next year, get ready KS friends!  As for the presents, well if money grew on trees I would have B buy me my wish list but there are more important things to put our money towards right now.

This does not mean that a girl can not dream and have a wish list.  So in honor of my birthday I wanted to share some things that are on my wish list.  Feel free to be super kind and send me presents....just kidding!!!  

  1. Colorful Chunky Necklace by Power of Jems on Etsy
  2. Purse Protector
  3. Everyday Italian by Giada Laurentiis
  4. Wilton Non-Stick 6-Cavity Donut Pan
  5. Coffee Mug by NS Pottery
  6. Runner Necklace by Simple Starfish
  7. Rose Sugarplum Camera Tote by Jo Totes
  8. Joy The Baker Cookbook by Joy Wilson
  9. Sugar & Cream Set by Pigeon Toe Ceramics
This is not a complete list, but these are on the top of my list today.  I thought of two more things I really want and did not add to the above list, this and this.  

Speaking of wish-lists, have you heard of Elfster?  If not, go check it out because it is a great place to keep an online wish list.  When I find something I want, I try and add it to my Elfster wish list.  Now B never has the excuse of not knowing what I want.  He never knows what to get me because I'm pretty picky about what I like and do not like!

I first learned about Elfter when I was part of an online craft gift exchange.  The entire exchange was done through the Elfster website, so there are many things that the site can be used for.  Does your family do Christmas gift exchanges? This website would work great for that. Each family member could put their wish-list up so you can see the wish-list of the person you have drawn for the exchange. Nifty, uh!

Do you always have a wish-list of things you want for holidays and birthdays?  What is one thing on your wish list right now? 

I'm off to get ready for the day so I can enjoy a coffee date with some friends.  I'm celebrating with B this weekend! 

**This blog post is not sponsored and I did not get paid to say any of the above.  And Elfster does not know I'm chatting about their great site, the above opinions and thoughts are all my own. 

Til' Next Time,
