Birthday Wishlist

There are so many things in this world that I would love to have but a) will never buy for myself, and b) could not afford right now even if I did want to buy them. That, my friends, is the beauty of a birthday, and mine is right around the corner. Here are some items that are on my birthday wish list this year…

  1. Macy’s,  Keurig B60 Coffee Maker, Single Serve : This might be one of the greatest kitchen appliance I have ever used. For anybody who drinks a cup or 2 of coffee every day but not a whole pot, this is the perfect gift. No more cleaning a coffee pot. Ever again.
  2. Overstock.com, KitchenAid 5 Speed Blender : Yes I want a blender for my birthday. And yes, it has to be this color.
  3. Victoria’s Secret, Motorcycle Jacket : I love this jacket. Every time I get a Victoria’s Secret catalog in the mail I drool over it.
  4. Old Navy, Women’s Sliver Wedge Boots: I really want some tall, flat boots in this camel color for the fall, and these are super cute without a super high price tag.
  5. Amazon, Mikasa Cheers Too 16-ounce White Wine Glasses :  I got the original Mikasa Cheers white wine glasses as a graduation gift and would love to have the full set.
  6. Target, Sex and the City 2 I loved the show and I love this movie. It was even better than the last one. I have the entire series on DVD as well as the first movie, so I need to complete my collection 🙂
  7. Amazon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse : Although it is not available yet, I am holding out hope it will be here by my birthday. I am a Twi-hard, what can I say.
  8. Target, Tom Tom XL 340T GPS : I will be the first to admit that my sense of direction sucks. When I eventually leave the small college town I currently live in, a GPS for my car will be a must have.
  9. Reebok,  RunTone Action Shoes : I just recently started running and I really want a pair of these shoes.  Who doesn’t want their butt to look better?
  10. Direct From Mexico, Large Thick Talavera Cross : a) I love all things Mexican (especially food and decor), and b) I collect crosses

Oh and one more thing…

Chocolate Brown Wiener Dog

A brother or sister for Lily 🙂

Who Needs Two Sleeves Anyway?

You’re Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One side is a little slutty and the other is conservative and buttoned up. What a great concept!

  2. Arden B, Swirl Print One Shoulder Top
  3. Victoria’s Secret, One Shoulder Tunic
  4. Ralph Lauren, Sonya One Shoulder Top
  5. Forever21, One Sleeve Top

Holy Robe

I’m starting to think in advance to my hospital stay coming up in a few months. Yes, I’m panicking about many things: epidurals, possible c-sections, the health of my baby… and the condition of my bathrobe. Ladies, it’s not looking too good on the robe front over here. I think I must get a new one for the baby’s visitor’s sake. It’s only fair. Here are a few sassy numbers that I’m considering.

  1. Target, Jersey Slub Robe
  2. Amazon, Nautica Knit Robe
  3. Target, Hooded Robe
  4. Victoria’s Secret, Ultrasoft Robe
  5. Victoria’s Secret, Super Soft Lounge Robe

The Cover Up

I’m not generally a huge fan of getting in a bathing suit, so when I do, I gotta have a cover-up.  And seeing as how I might be in a swimsuit a little more this summer because my kiddo loves the hell out of the baby pool, I’m probably going to need a stylin’ cover-up.

  1. Old Navy, Women’s Ruffled Tube Dress
  2. Dillards, Raisins Twisty Strap Coverup
  3. Macys, Ralph Lauren Darcy Tunic Coverup
  4. Victoria’s Secret, Terry Tiered empire dress
  5. Walmart, Faded Glory Women’s Print Halter Maxi Dress

Romp In the Hay

  2. Alloy, Spoon Jeans Denim Romper
  3. Victorias Secret, Short Sleeved Slub Romper

Things I Can Wear and So Can You

I have always gravitated towards flowy and loose tops. Before I lost the weight that I did pre-wedding, no one thought I needed to lose anything by looking at me. And when I would say I was dieting, they would tell me some tale of me being out of my mind- that I looked fine already.  I was good at disguising is what it was. Well, now that I’m pregnant, my pants are getting tight and my previously not round belly is starting to have a little done-lapped over my pants situation.  So enter my love of flowy tops. Here we go ladies, these are your best friend.. let me tell you. Prego or not.
