My Birthday Wishlist

Thursday, April 11, 2013
So, I'm turning 30 this week!! I think I am the same as most people, a little sad to say Goodbye to my 20's and I have that feeling that I am 'getting old', but at the same time it doesn't bother me that much. There is so much great stuff to look forward to this year that I'm looking ahead with excitement and anticipation, not the dread of more grey hairs!

For a few weeks now Joel has been asking me what I want for my Birthday, and my answer has been: 'I don't know'. I honestly haven't really had that much time lately to think about myself and what I want. So this week I took some time and sat down and happily searched the interwebs to find some things I love and would be very happy to receive for my birthday. So this post is really for Joel (and my parents), but I hope you enjoy it too! There are lots of pretty things to look at!

Joel can be a great gift giver, one year I got an IPad for Christmas, complete surprise! But, he also has a tendency to revert to very 'practical gifts'. He and I think very differently about gifts, which is why in the past I have received a cutlery set, a scanner and a kettle for different Birthdays or Christmases. Not that I want to sound ungrateful at all, but seriously, A KETTLE!!!! It was a lovely kettle, but a kettle all the same, I thought he would have learnt his lesson after I got cutlery, but no. In his man wired brain he figures if you need it, you should get it as a present. My thoughts are that I like to try to buy people things they love but wouldn't necessarily buy themselves, something that is a treat! So, this year, I wanted to help him out a little, I like surprises, but because we don't have heaps of money to splash around, I don't want to waste it on things I don't like either.. does anyone else have this problem?

  1. I love those shoes at number 11 They are seriously funky. The thirties really are exciting I was so pleased to be leaving my 20's behind, why I am not sure but I was. Hope it is the best birthday ever. My hubster gives some strange presents at times as well but never a cutlery set or kettle.

  2. Great picks! I love all the shoes!
    I now buy my own presents...Daddy R is very hit or miss with his gifts so I have taken to just treating myself. And he does the same on his birthday. Not as exciting as opening a wonderful surprise, but I am always pleased with what I pick for myself!
    Happy birthday!
