My Birthday Wishlist

Since my birthday will be here in a couple of weeks (August 7 I turn the big 2-8 *gasp*), I thought I would make a wishlist for myself (or others who are looking for ideas for me...)

A cover for my Kindle (it's currently naked) would be great. I like the fun designs, although I'm trying to keep it somewhat gender neutral since Chris sometimes uses the Kindle - not sure I hit the mark with this one!

Amazon Books Gift Cards
Speaking of Kindles - a gift card to would be a great idea, too! I'm downloading about a book/month, which isn't a ton of money but I would feel less bad about wanting to read :)
I also wouldn't mind a new case for my Iphone. I have a fuschia colored one right now, that's just ok - nothing special. Would like to have a fancier one!

This area rug from Home Depot (or a gift card to Home Depot to buy the rug). I bought the runner this past weekend to go in our front entry way (LOVE it) and want to get the matching area rug for our living room. I hate our carpet in the living room, but don't see us replacing it for a while so I'm hoping this will make it better for me.

Mohawk Home
Zayden Multi 5 ft. x 8 ft. Area Rug $117.00

And of course, gift cards (to other stores) are always more than welcome!

Happy Monday! I think this week is going to go by very quickly!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

  • That it's Wednesday and that means there is only 2 more days left this week, it's been a long one!

  • That tonight my husband doesn't work and we are having BBQ chicken on the grill, twice baked potatoes that we will be preparing on the grill and sangrias (my SIL introduced me to the recipe this past weekend and it's soooo yummy! I may have done a "test run" with the recipe last night ;) )

  • That this crazy humidity filled past few days is supposed to be going away soon. It's nice that it feels like summer, but I don't love Florida summers and that's what it feels like right now

  • That my hometown park is ranked #2 in the running to win $100,000 to help rebuild the park. When we were in Minot last weekend, you couldn't even access the park since that part of the city is still closed off. I can't even imagine what it will look like when you can see it again.
Here is the link if you want to cast your vote 1 or a million times :)

  • And finally, I'm loving that my amazing husband agreed to let me get a patio set for under our deck. We have such an amazing view in our backyard (no houses behind us, just marsh land) and now we can sit and relax and plan what we're going to do in our backyard. He's supposed to pick it up today, can't wait!

Yay! It's the weekend!

The weekend is here and I plan to enjoy it! Tonight some of my co-workers and I are going to be stopping by here for a little Happy Hour / Stressful 4 day work relief :)

Tomorrow we may end up going here during the day

and if my husband can get the night off, I really hope we get to go's been soooo long

Sunday will be much more low-key, as in, I see myself doing a lot of this

And then I will be getting ready to head off to Minot, ND for a family reunion next weekend. I'm pretty excited to see my brother and his family since it's been since November last year when we saw them. Way too long!

I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the nice weather!
