I have this terrible habit of extending my birthday. A lot.
It stems from the chaos- rarely does a special day fall on at the appropriate time. Inevitably, we have to work late, get sick, get extra-broke... something. And birthdays and anniversaries are postponed- days, weeks, months...
So. Just in cases, I have started buying myself presents in advance. My birthday is more than a month away, and already, I have purchased:
Mad Men Season 2 (Peggy is my favorite. No question. If I took one of those "Which Mad Man Are You" quizzes, I am sure I would be Peggy. And if I wasn't, then something would be very faulty. There's no point. If I were a Mad (wo)Man... I would be Peggy)
This long awaited book from my 2nd favorite blogger and first favorite craft+family book writer.
And next on the list:
these shoes (Jackie had them first. but she is far away. I think the thousand+ miles makes them fair game)
or maybe these- can't decide
this planner that i have loved for years now. it appears to be sold out, but I'm going to check my local anthro, they might have one held out for me.
if they don't have it- I love her stuff, too
and also, b is taking me here, to see these beautiful people. Maybe doesn't fall under birthday, just a rare date- but We. even. have. a. babysitter(s)!!! It's as if we are real, grown up parents that go out on dates. Weird.
And the one condition that I would endure one more Ohio Winter was a new coat. A beautiful and expensive new coat. I love this one supermost. Now I just have to wait it out until they have another 30% off sale. Come on Johnnie Boden, catch my esps...
(But this one doesn't count, it's just on the list)
Which fabulous things do you want most right now?
