Making it Wishful

My birthday is this Sunday.  I really wish I could get as excited as I did when I was a little girl, but I fear that is just part of growing up.  It's not that I dread getting older or anything weird like that.  It's just that I used to get butterflies in my stomach for days before my birthday - it was dang exciting!  And now, no butterflies.

Ah well. C'est la vie.  I always feel like I should be smoking a cigarette and wearing red stripes when I say that.

So, how about a little birthday wish list?  Joe and I agreed no presents this year as we went on an awesome vacation to Hawaii earlier this summer.  But what else is a wish list for if not a little wishful thinking?

Fuji Instax Camera - looks amazingly fun

I have a major craft crush on Amy Butler

For obvious reasons, I will be needing a rotary cutter and cutting board (see Amy Butler above)

This is the most perfect dress ever.  Agree?

A gift card to IKEA would be amazing.  I wish their logo didn't look so tacky on my blog, but I really could use some bookshelves.

And this book would be a two-fold gift.  It would help me decide where to position the new bookshelves, and then it would be placed upon said shelves.

And that, dear readers, is my birthday wish.  Ah, I do love a good list.

Oh, and let me leave a gracious thank you to my lovely in-laws who already gave the gift of love - in the form of a rug for our once bare living room.  Ellie loves it, I love it, Joe will learn to love it.  And we all love you.


  1. Glad you like the rug. Keep me posted on this b-day list, could it become a Christmas wish list, too?? Miss ya'll.
    Love ya,

  2. I think these are all great birthday ideas...so perfect that I wish it were my birthday...and what is this about Hawaii? Do I get to see pictures of that because that is one more thing I would like to be jealous of! Anyway, you are awesome, and I love your classy blog look!

  3. So I see that I may have fueled an Amy Butler addiction. Next up--digital scrapbooking :). I want to see pictures of your rug. Look at Joanns for sales on rotary cutters and cutting mats. I got $46 Ginger scissors (the scissors they use in heaven), 1 cutting mat, 2 rotary cutters (with board $32), 2 spools of thread, jeans sewing needles, and something else I can't remember all for $50! Great sales.

  4. Totally blog stalked! Because I had to tell you how wonderful you are, and I am excited to read your blog. And I totally put that camera on my amazon wishlist!!

  5. Whitney, I just found your blog! Ellie is adorable. By the way, I have Institches. Let me know if you want to borrow it :)
