I would swear I just had one, but according to the calendar today is my birthday. My oldest child is graduating from high school soon, so my husband is taking me shopping for a dress. I feel like I need a button to wear that says “Call me ma'am and suffer the consequences.” But they’re welcome to ask for my ID, should I choose to order a beverage containing alcohol. Wait until you see how cranky I’ll get when I have really big birthdays.
I came across a few things that made me much less cranky though. For starters, how could I, being a crafter, not smile at this little beauty? It can be found at Joann, and I just can’t get over what a great job Singer did combining the old and new.
When I was a kid, in the olden days before computers, I actually loved to type. My husband gave me a tablet for my birthday last year, so this USB Typewriter from Uncommon Goods just seems like a perfect fit.
Speaking of my little tablet, the reason I wanted one in the first place was to read books on it. I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I think my next one will be Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer. I always find it fascinating to hear a scientist try to explain why we do what we do.
If you understand the references on this t-shirt, you know why it’s one of my all-time favorite movies. If you don’t, go find The Princess Bride and watch it. Right now. But don’t read the book – it’s truly awful. Inconceivable.
I have ridiculously sensitive teeth. Not because I’m getting older – they’ve always been that way. I rarely even bother trying to drink something cold without a straw, so I’m pretty sure I need these Bent Glass Straws from Etsy seller ManyMinis.
I already got a fabulous coffee cup for my birthday from my sister. It came from Amazon in a GIANT blue velvet bag, which made it extra fun to open. In case you’re new here, I’m a big Wonder Woman fan.
I’ve been on a search for some cute red heels. I don’t know where I’m going to wear them, it just seems like something that should be available in my closet when I figure it out. This pair from DSW might be The One.
As a graduation gift, we’re taking our daughter and her friend to Disneyland. This cute Dooney & Bourke bag might not be in the budget (after high school comes college), but I will have to find it there, just so I can see it in person. No really, I just want to look at it. Really.
When my husband and I got married, almost 21 years ago, we decided we didn’t need or want formal china. A few years ago, I found my “china” in Fiesta ware. I have quite a bit of it now, but there’s always a new piece or color on my radar. Right now, it’s this chip and dip set. Love.
Do you remember the brownie/cookie dough/cake dessert from last year? It was heavenly. This year, I’m leaning toward these Salted Caramel Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Bars from Made with Pink. Tell me your mouth is not watering right now.
I’m off to do some celebrating. Have a great Mother’s Day this weekend!
