With my birthday coming up in exactly a month, I thought it would be fun to share my birthday wishlist! Some years I have long list (like this year), and other years I can't think of a thing. Maybe it is because I am actually on a budget being married, but I have a lot of things on my list!
And I'll be 25- so a reason to celebrate!
I just missed buying this dress from Anthropologie for my cousin's wedding, but sadly it was completely sold out to when I hit "buy"! I was so so sad. I'm keeping it on my list juuuuust in case someone happens to see it in a size 8 or 10 :-)
I'm also asking for a new monogrammed sweatshirt. A sweatshirt is a staple for me to throw on after work and I am really in need of a new one!
At first I was 100% opposed to Lululemon. I thought anyone who paid an obscene amount of money on workout clothes was CRAZY until I discovered the pace setter skirt. I can't wear Nike shorts or other types of running shorts because of my thighs and in the summer it gets too hot to wear long black running pants. I tried the pace setter skirt on over the summer and was hooked. I need a few other pairs. If I cant find a pair of shorts that doesn't chafe (sorry TMI) my legs, I honestly don't care what the cost is!
I feel like Tory Burch Revas are on my list every year. I've worn out my pair I bought in 2011 and keep saying I'm going to get a new pair but a) they are overpriced and b) super uncomfortable. I just think they go with everything and I don't walk around much at my job now so sitting down wearing them would be OK. I don't need them by any means... If I could find a knock-off pair or something comparable, I'd ditch Tory in a minute!
I've had my grandmother's monogrammed gold necklace since she passed away in 2001, WAY before monogrammed jewelry was in style. My mom has a pair of earrings with her maiden monogram and I've always loved them. I don't have too much with my new monogram, so I think this could be a great gift!
A Garmin watch/GPS is honestly THE thing that I want for my birthday. I love my Nike+ app, but I don't love that I can't see it when I run and it doesn't count calories when I am doing other exercises. I think a running GPS would really motivate me to add more miles to my routine. Would you recommend a Garmin or a Polar watch? I'll take either, and whichever "does it all" for less!
Now that we live on the water I wear a hat a lot on the boat. A monogrammed baseball hat would be such an easy gift (and inexpensive!).
I've been contemplating getting a juicer with our leftover wedding gift cards. I think my magic bullet bit the dust lately (SAD FACE), so I wouldn't mind something to up my fruit and veggie intake! Again, something I don't need by any means but fun to have!
Last but not least, I dorkingly (is that a word? maybe not....) want a pair of garden shears! I usually have fresh flowers in the house and cutting them with scissors is not cool. Maybe it will make me start trimming the vines going up our front steps, too? #wishfulthinking
Is there anything else that a 25 year old needs? Ok I don't really need any of this. But birthdays come once a year and then six weeks later it is Christmas... so I think my family has it pretty easy with my list this year! :-)
And happy 22nd birthday to my cousin Anna today!
