Every year I make up a birthday list, even though I rarely actually ask for the things on it. With the big 3-3 coming next weekend I figure it’s time to do a little me shopping.
But still, I like to fantasize a little- like window shopping with a purpose.
And when I (hopefully) blow out the candles on a cake, I know I will have a certain wish on my mind, but here- lets go birthday shopping!
First, I would like a necklace with my twitter handle on it. Or a bracelet. Anyway- jewelry, Twitter themed.Whatever.
Next, I would like a keyboard for my iPad. I am still supplementing my poor old computer with iPad use, when I can wrangle it away from my son. Seriously, who’s is it anyway?
So adding a keyboard would be good when it’s time to type, like the Apple keyboard (since I don’t need it integrated into the cover) and I can put it away and give it back to him when I’m done so he can look at his beloved PBS Kids app.
Secondly, with two separate blogging events coming up right after my birthday I may end up lugging my iPad to two states the next month and feel the need to be chic about it. I am in love with this neon yellow tablet clutch. Seriously, no way to lose it, every reason to use it.
And all of that running around means I need new shoes right? Last year’s pair of target leopard-print ballet flats finally died, meaning I need to replace and I decided, this year, upgrade. Therefore, browsing Nordstrom’s animal-print flat collection online is my new hobby.Along with shopping for scarves at Modcloth.
Along with all of this looking, I want to do more looking. I love my Canon 20D that has weathered the test of time (almost ten years of dropping, manhandling, and photo shoots run by a toddler) but I’m ready for a new camera. One that shoots faster than 1600 so I can take some more rockin’ pictures and let my husband borrow it for Monster Jam. Then I’d like a new fancy camera strap. Just because. And a new camera bag. Just because.
I’d also like a little more world peace and literacy throughout the world. Especially peace and education in our own country.
What did you wish for last time you blew out birthday candles?
