Countdown to 23 | A Birthday Wish List

I don't know about you, but I'm feelin' twenty-two... at least for another week ;)  The big 2-3 is coming up on the 16th and it will be my first birthday spent at home in 5 years! Don't get me wrong, being at Baylor Line Camp for my 18th and in Paris, France for my 21st is pretty tough to beat, but I am thrilled to spend this birthday at home. We will do the traditional dinner at my grandmother's house: her famous spaghetti, a classic chocolate cake, and BlueBell's home-made vanilla ice cream. 

My parents bought my birthday present early, way back in March when I was working at Anthropologie and we had a special sale on home goods. Some shiny new dishes for my apartment are carefully tucked away until August; I just love to look at them! Even so, that doesn't keep me from daydreaming. Below are things on my wish list, for birthday, Christmas, pay-day, whatever.   You'll have to tell me what your favorite is, I'm having such a hard time choosing!


Links to each item can be found above!

What do you think? Anything I should grab right away? I'm also thinking about doing a fun birthday giveaway, and you might spot one or two of these items so stay tuned! ;)

  8. First of all, I can't tell you how jealous I am that you've had so many amazing birthdays--Paris? Paris is the number one place that I have to visit sometime in my lifetime. I'm obsessed. Happy early 23rd birthday, friend! I'll pray 23 will be good to you, and I'm sure it will. :)

    I pretty much want everything on your list. You have good taste, girl!

  10. I hope your 23rd bday is all that you wish for and more!! Excited for your upcoming grad school journey, friend! I LOVE the necklace, and very intrested in the Give Me Jesus notebook, and adore the texas pillow (I'm beginning to have a soft spot for the state thanks to my boyfriend).

  11. Well.. I LOVE the art print but that's because I'm an artist. Art pieces can really set the mood to any place, so go for it! Also, you should get the journals. I love journaling and there's nothing better to write with your handwriting! Hope you have a nice bday!
