Birthday Wish List

VI. Six. 6. 
The number following 5 and preceding 7.

Also the number of days left in my teenage career.

That's right ladies and gents. Only 6 days stand between me and the big 2-0.
I couldn't be more excited! 19 has been good to me, but yes, it is indeed time to move on. 

With a birthday comes candles, cake, streamers, balloons, dinner dates with friends, and maybe even a pinata or two! And of course...birthday wish lists. I'm always so bad at letting my parents know what I want in an organized list but this year I did my best to cooperate with my mother and let her know, first things first.

A few of those firsts include...

Number 1:



I've only been begging to go back since the day I left 2 years ago. There's so much to love about this place. Let me grab a couple girlfriends, put us on a plane, don't expect us back for a week. 

Okay, a weekend is probably more feasible and it'll more than likely have to be a road trip! But I don't mind.

Number 2:

I fell in love with these sheets from Anthropologie right before Christmastime when I was searching for treats to add to my 'Dear Santa' List. 

The design is composed of vintage love letters from a shop in Brooklyn, NY. I DIE.

Now, if I just had my own apartment to go along with them...

Number 3:

I love it so much I don't even need to be specific.
I believe the store front says enough.

Number 4:

April showers bring May flowers, and what do May flowers bring? 

Contrary to popular opinion, they do not in fact bring Pilgrims as once described (heartbreaking, I know) but they are known for simply bringing more rain and crazy weather! Well, in Tulsa that is. Which means I have put considerable thought into how to prepare myself for the deluge of thunderstorms and tornado watches (please, Lord, NO!). 

The dilemma lies in which color to choose! Olive, Pink, Navy, Green, Red, Chocolate, Aubergine (which is a delightful shade of purple, trust me I did NOT come up with that one on my own)...the possibilities are endless!!

Number 5:

Number 5, Part A--These classic wayfarers=Spring/Summer/Poolside.

Number 5, Part B--PERFECT for Fall/Winter/Every Season.

Number 6:

Thanks to J. Crew, #6 is a 'two-for-one' deal. They go perfect together and this makes it possible for Mom and Pops to knock out two gifts in one store. I'm just trying to make it easy.

Number 7:

Go big or go home, right?

Oh, time does fly...

Well, I suppose I'll start off by apologizing tremendously for my absence from this pretty little page. Life has been moving full speed ahead and it's all I can do to not get swept away myself! 

With that being said, this is your warning about the deluge of information you're going to receive in the next few posts. I may have been busy but I haven't stopped daydreaming! Duh. Spring has sprung, and so have all my fave stores' spring lines; my birthday's coming up (and not without a wishlist); school's almost over; and I'm concocting MAJOR plans for a summer in T-town. You're going to want to keep reading.

But, first things first, and while it's subtle (and possibly unexpected--I like to keep you on your toes) it is well worth a post!

This little number has become one of those movies I could watch on a loop for the rest of my life. So refreshing, some of my all-time fave actors all combined in a great feel-good movie. And the soundtrack! AMAZING. Might even be better than the movie itself, but I doubt it.

"Free Me"--Joss Stone
"Waiting For My Real Life To Begin"--Colin Hay
"Incredible"--Joss Stone
"New Shoes"--Paolo Nutini
"Stuck in the Middle with You"--Michael Buble
"Don't Hold Me Down"--Colbie Caillat
"Two Sleepy People"--Hoagy Carmichael
"Same Changes"--The Weepies
"Candy Shop"--50 Cent
"Are You Here"--Corinne Bailey Rae
"Gone In The Morning"--Newton Faulkner
"Strip Me"--Natasha Bedingfield

Trust me when I say you will be far from disappointed!
