birthday wishlist

My birthday is on Saturday and while I'm always a fan, here's why I think this year's birthday is a big deal:
  • I will be a quarter of a century old. I will be closer to 30 than 20. Whoa.
  • It's my last childless birthday. Something tells me it's only going to get harder to enjoy the all-about-me moments.
  • It could be the last birthday for a while that Andrew will be around, since he'll probably be deployed more than he's home over the next few years. Boo to that.
  • It's on a Saturday, which means I get to do whatever I want all.day.long.
  • I took Friday and Monday off to try and use some PTO before Andrew's unavailable, which means we can celebrate over a 4-day weekend. Yesssss.
In honor of my birthday, I decided to show you some things that have been making me smile lately. It's my birthday list, if you will. Because it's my birthday and it's my blog and I can do stuff like this without feeling guilty. Agreed?


Here we go...

bday collage

  1. Knotted necklace by Marine Parents on Etsy. I especially like the cerise and the jade green. So happy.
  2. Bird nest necklace by Pinking Edge Designs on Etsy. Precious, right?
  3. Starbucks NYC Architecture Mug. I've only been able to find it on eBay and at $20, I'm wishing that I'd paid $10 when I saw it in a Starbucks while we were in New York this Christmas. I loved it immediately and as silly as it sounds, I've regretted that I didn't get it.
  4. Poppy headband by Much Love, Illy on Etsy. Headbands are my new thing, especially as I try to grow my hair out. And because I can go without fixing my hair and still look cute :)
  5. House print by Volume 25 on Etsy. There's no better motto for a Navy family...
  6. Knotted headband by Marcelacamargo on Etsy. I've coveted this headband for a long, long time. So fun for summer!
Cute stuff, I know. Happy birthday to me!

  1. I want that knotted headband. Did you see the belt?!

  2. Don't forget, you share a birthday with one of the cutest little second cousins *ever*! ;)

    Happy early birthday!! :)

  3. Closer to 30 than to 20? Whoa.

    Okay, can I strangle you now? ;-)

  4. I'm closer to 30 than 20 too. I don't think that's such a bad thing.

  5. I have to disagree with one comment...birthdays only get SO MUCH BETTER when you're a mom, because life means so much more, and you have someone who truly believes that you hung the moon to spend the whole day with you -- plus at around 2 years old, they're old enough to sing Happy Birthday to you...or at least a close rendition!

  6. I know, right? Such a fun shop!

  7. Never! This is a bigger birthday for him anyway :)

  8. Um, I was with you on your 30th birthday. I know what I'm looking forward to ;)

  9. I appreciate your positivity.

  10. Ha! I hadn't thought about it that way :)

  11. I know, right? It's such a fun shop!
