Birfday Giffs

T-12 days until my birthday and just in case last night’s post was a little too serious for you, I thought I’d lighten the mood with my birthday-wishlist-daydreams. Tyler keeps asking me what I want and I simply can’t decide…

An iPhone? I’m only turning 28 but my Blackberry is turning 3, which is like 104 in cellphone years. It needs to be restarted approximately 3.6 times a day.  It’s time to put her to sleep.

Then, of course, I’ll need one of these to protect my new baby…

Or perhaps some cowboy boots? I’m a Southerner, I have way too many cute sundresses to not own any cowboy boots, and it’s almost fall…

A cover for my Kindle?  Shocked that is hasn’t been scratched yet.  Lurv this one on Etsy.

Maybe a point and shoot? Yes, we have a big fancy camera but it is way too big to carry around for everyday use and our little camera is five years old and takes terrible, grainy pictures.  In case you haven’t noticed

Jesus Calling: Seeking Peace in His Presence [Book]Rachel talks about this book all the time and I know a ton of people who have read it.  I think I would love it.

Cricut Expression personal Electronic Cutting Machine, White IncludesOr a Cricket Cutter?  I don’t really feel like I can ask for this because I haven’t done my homework in researching them and there appear to be fifteen different models ranging from $85 to $500.  All I know is that I want something that I can print vinyl stencils with from patterns I make in Photoshop.  Just thinking about all of the pillows, distressed crates, etched glass, and word art I could make makes me salivate.  Please advise.

Or perhaps a pony. Yes, I think a pony’ll do just fine.

So…I think that covers it.  I, of course, would be lucky to get just one thing off here. Or nothing because I don’t truly need anything.  This is my “Whoops—the bank accidentally deposited $1,000 in my account” daydream list. 

So, which of these should I really ask for?

Your phone really is 104 years old (the ball thing falling out has got to drive you crazy) and I think a new little camera is awesome. But that's because those are my top two when the bank makes an accidental deposit into my account...

Well, you NEED a new phone. So that should just be a given. NO gift, you should just get the iPhone. We LOVE ours!

I'd also take a cover for the kindle. I don't know how you haven't scratched it yet either. I love mine. That is also a need. No gift, a need. You should just get that one too.

Ok, so for a gift.... The camera and the boots! I don't know anything about that machine, and a pony...well would you really have space to ride him in DC? So, the camera and the boots!

Boots for sure! I have a million pairs and still can't have enough. I LOVE Durango boots. They need no breaking in. They are about $200 bucks, but I've had one pair for over 5 years, and they are still going strong. So...they really are the best investment when you know there will be a new phone in like 6 months.

I say the phone or the kindle cover. I don't have an iPhone...I've got an Android, but you'll LOVE it!

As for the Kindle cover...ay yi yi, it's saved mine from several disasters;)

The good thing is if you get the iPhone, it's kind of like getting a point and shoot camera too:). And of course, Jesus Calling would get my vote too!

Get the pony!!!

Ok, realistically, many of your items are also on my birthday wish list as well...so, my vote goes for iPhone AND cover (ummm....LOVE the cover!!!), Kindle cover, and camera! And the boots...well, those are also needed.

And I know I completely did NOT help narrow things down at all. Welcome! : )
