It's All About What I Want
I just did something that I hate doing. It happens least once a year and I always have to do it but I always end up feeling greedy or selfish.
I had to write out a birthday wish list for my friends.
I have some awesome friends and we always try and make a big deal out of each others birthdays and celebrate them together.
There are a few reasons why we make such a big deal out of it. Since my family all live out of state I can’t go home to celebrate. Funny Girls family lives a couple hours away and they usually do dinner but it isn’t a big thing. Sweet Morsel’s family regularly forgets her birthday even though she lives 10 minutes away and they usually call her later in the week to apologize. All of those are really only excuses. We love to celebrate just about anything.
I will be 33 next month so after two weeks of being harassed by my friends I wrote out my list. I thought that I would share it with the entire blogosphere just in case you wanted to celebrate my birthday too and buy me something. (Just kidding about the buying me something part)
I like to give a variety of things in various price ranges so that no one feels obligated to beggar themselves.
Here is my birthday wish list:
Body Shop Satsuma body wash
Body Shop body butter (a fruity scent like coconut, pineapple, grapefruit or something like brown sugar)
TIGI Bedhead shampoo and conditioner (Self Absorbed is the kind that I use)
Bathroom Shelf Rack (the thing that makes shelving space above the toilet) with doors.
Towels (bath sheets, towels, hand and washcloths)
New cute shower curtain and bath mats for main bathroom. (not clear)
Beauticontrol brown sugar cologne
silicone baking dishes
new board game (for game night)
More Pricey Stuff
Flat screen computer monitor (at least 17 inch)
DVD burner for PC
new coffee & side tables for living room
book of oil changes
coupon for getting carpet cleaned
coupon for maid service
This list was off the top of my head. I always have a list of stuff that I need since I rarely buy household stuff unless I absolutely have to have it.
I know that no matter what I get (unless it is gift wrapped dog poop or something) I will have a great time just because I get to share the day with my friends.
