Birthday wrap-up...the outfit, the fun presents and my wish list!

Happy middle of the week!  I put my best friend back on a plane to CA yesterday (sad!!!) so now it's back to reality.  This morning I'm strolling through my house, taking care of things I've ignored the past 6 days while she was here.  Cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming, doing laundry...glam life today.  =) 

So I'm now 32 years old...I've decided that's still young.  So what if I start to feel old when my hip pain from running kicks in and my joints ache just a little more as I get out of bed in the morning?!  I'm ignoring all that for now.  I used to think anything past 30 was getting old...thankfully 30 is like the new 10 or something so I'm actually must younger than I think! =)  For my birthday this year I got to get all dressed up for church since it landed on a Sunday...here's what I pulled out of my closet:


Twisted Ascot Tee-Anthropologie/ Peppering Skirt-Anthropologie/ Belt-Banana Republic/ Mixed Media Heels-Anthropologie/ Bracelet-Twisted Silver/ Earrings-Ruche/ Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I always loved how this top and skirt were paired in the Anthro catalog last year when they came out so I finally wore them together just like that.  Funny...I actually bought this shirt last year with my birthday discount!

I was spoiled by friends and family for my fun day this year...it's always fun to be remembered!  Hubby surprised me a few days early with my birthday present:


A new iPad!  
I've been wanting one for a long time and was totally surprised by it.  He did good! =)

I was also gifted this gorgeous necklace by my best friend while she was here, that I've had my eye on for a while:



Love it!!!  The colors are so fun and make it so versatile!  Thanks Elise!

And I may or may not have bought myself a little present as well:

Henry Chrono Watch
by Marc by Marc Jacobs
I have wanted a Rose Gold watch for quite some time and with a hefty rewards card and a great Piperlime discount, I made this watch mine for just a 1/3 of the retail price.  It still hasn't arrived yet though because I accidentally sent it to my old address in CA.  Whoops!  I was able to get it re-routed though (I think) so I'm crossing my fingers it will find it's way to Ohio soon!

I also got a gift card and some shopping money from family members which was so nice...I'm trying to decide what to put it all towards.  There are more than a few things on my wish list right now that I'd love to add to my closet for fall...just have to narrow it down to what I want the most!  Here's my current top ten wish list:


Birthday Wish List


Most are from Anthropologie, but there are a few things that can be found from other places.  The only thing that really should be on this wish list that's not is a pair of black riding boots. I haven't found the perfect pair yet so I'm still on the look out.  

So it was a very happy birthday.  I was spoiled indeed.  Even though all the things are fun and fabulous, my favorite gift came from my three boys.  I came home to find flowers and a homemade card waiting for me, and my oldest brought me breakfast in bed.  What more can a girl ask for?  I'm so blessed. =)

Alright, off to actually get some stuff done!  Hope you have a fabulous day!

PS--I hear rumors something fantastic is suppose to be happening at Anthro this weekend, but have no idea what!  Anyone get any tips from their local stores??

  4. Happy Birthday!! 32 is definitely still young. I've decided mid-40's is still young. :o) Ya know, the older I get...amazingly those numbers aren't old anymore. Funny how that works! :oP

  6. Hi Jenni, I have the polka dit tippi and wanted to tell you it pills terribly. I am going to take it back. After one wear it looked like it was beat up. Lol. I love my iPad! saw you love the blue trench-Did you not keep the loft one? That's cute too.

    1. Oh no!! That's no good!! I wonder if that's the case on all of them or if you got one from a bad batch?? Hmm. I am still keeping the Loft Trench...I just love that navy one too! The navy one looks like it could be a good dressier option while the striped one could be more for everyday casual. You can never have enough coats!! ;)
