I'll be turning 27 this coming Sunday and just for fun I started making a mental wish list. As my brain jotted down a few things that came to my mind quickly, I had to slow my "pen" and remind myself how old I will be turning. 27 is still oh-so-young, yet my birthday wish list? Might as well be for someone turning 72.
Honestly? The first thing that came to mind was new carpet for our house. Exciting, huh?! Then new appliances, maybe a thorough car detailing, someone to put money toward's my student loans.... etc. It's scary how all the things coming to mind were practical and downright boring! So while those are more important things than a frivolous shopping spree, it's still fun to think of those things I'd love simply because I want them, not need them.
I'll pretty much take anything the LOFT sells, but I've been especially eyeing this scarf, and this dress lately. And hey! Why hasn't LOFT send me any type of birthday coupon yet? Did they forget me?? I'm also on the hunt for a good nude-colored sandal, every girl needs a pair of those, right? Or really if someone could just find me all the perfect shoes in the world, I'll take a pair of each.
I mentioned yesterday that Punta Cana has truly inspired me to reach deep into my brain and recover what Spanish I have learned, and get a lot better at it too. Rosetta Stone is crazy expensive, but goodness I've heard it's the best out there! And in the very likely chance I don't receive this software- does anyone have any good websites for learning Spanish??
Cookbooks. Old person alert! ;) But Erin, you have Pinterest, why do you need a cookbook?? While Pinterest is amazing and I've found many a' good recipes there, I love having a paper cookbook to flip through and discover.
A Garmin Forerunner GPS watch still has my attention, as well. Even though I've barely been able to run for weeks now due to this silly hip injury, I know I'll run again... eventually! And when I'm back at it, I'd love to have something like this to help me stay on track and motivate me even more.
Along with that watch? I'll take just about any type of running gear anyone wants to buy me. I'm obsessed with Under Armour and would gladly live in their stuff if I could. Hoodies, tees, tanks, leggings- you name it, I want it ;)
And of course, it never hurts to ask for a puppy.
Are your birthday lists practical or fun? Or a little bit of both? ;) What are you currently wishing for!?
