Birthday Surprise...

My birthday is on the 19th of this month. I will be 32. So, for 32 years, my birthday has always fallen a couple of weeks after Christmas. Therefore, the presents I don't get for Christmas, I usually just re-ask again for my birthday. Good plan, huh?! I have always thought so, and my plan usually works out great!

Here are a couple of items that were on my wish list for this year...

I love this necklace from Lisa Leonard. I designed it (in my head) to have 3 separate tags...one for each of the kids names. I am not much of a flashy, jewelry person, so I love how simple and delicate it is. I could wear it with almost everything.

Yes, I know this is a vacuum. But, I really, really need a new one. One that works on carpet and hardwoods. The kids are dirty, I tell ya!


Some fun rain boots! I see these on my friends, and I love them! So, so cute!!

and, sometimes...

I receive items that I haven't even thought of yet, and are a COMPLETE surprise!

So, no matter what I may get for my 32nd birthday, nothing will ever top this amazing gift!

Too bad I can't open it until September! :)
