This year my birthday is on Thanksgiving. I’ll be turning 29. Stepping into the last year of my 20’s. I can’t think of a better birthday to be celebrating on Thanksgiving than this one.
Last year, my birthday was a fresh start for me. 27 was a roller coaster of a year filled with too many lows. After a lot of soul searching and time to heal, I was ready to put that year behind me. I was ready to go into 28 with a happy heart and faith that 28 had great things in store for me. On the day of my 28th birthday we went to see a reproductive endocrinologist (RE) about starting our family. That day we also decided to put off trying to have a baby until we had gotten some answers from the RE.
God had a different plan.
A year later, I’ll be celebrating 29 with a 3 month old baby girl.
If you do the math, we got pregnant the week of my 28th birthday =-)
28 was more than I could have ever hoped for.
I’m thankful. I’m grateful. I’m blessed.
I honestly don’t know what I want for my birthday this year. I definitely don’t need anything. But, after being asked what some things were that I wished I had, I decided to put some thought into it.
Here is what I came up with.
Lulumelon Workout Clothes
Tory Burch Miller Sandals
May Book (blank pages)
Miss Dior Cherie Perfume
Vera Bradley Wallet
Naked 2 Eyeshadows
Starbucks Gift Card
What am I missing. It honestly took me hours to just come up with this. Unless it’s baby items and clothes, I’m out of the loop.
Anything you’re loving that you think I need or would like?
Today, I’m thankful for blogging. It started as a hobby and has turned into so much more. It’s my outlet, it connects me with other bloggers that have become friends, it pushes me to challenge myself and hold myself accountable, I learn about products that I would have never heard of and it’s my own personal scrapbook. Blogging is a community that I am proud to be a part of.
Now, if you haven’t entered in the Pingagement Giveaway for Helzberg Diamonds, go and do it today.
You definitely need the lululemon. They're my favorite. You should get the rubber keyboard cover to match the case. I'm asking for the purple one for Christmas.
what is this Lulumelon stuff? starting to hear about it all over!
you have some great items on your list.
ps nice new theme! haven't been around your blog in a while due to hurricane sandy!
Love your birthday list, I have some similar items on my holiday wish list already 🙂 Hope you get it all!
Can't go wrong with Starbucks 🙂
I would LOVE some Lululemon, I just can't believe how expensive it is!
I have the Maybooks planner but honestly I don't like it much, I miss the Erin Condren planner but again, couldn't fathom spending $50 this time!
You MUST get the Lulu!
I just pulled up my Christmas list to give you suggestions. All that is on my list is extra long tanks and sweatshirts!!!! Ha ha!!!! How things have changed. I try not to be the SAHM who lives in a sweatshirt and jeans but I'm afraid that's what I have become!!!!! 🙂

Love! I'll take one of everything, too! 😉 (except the Mac book cover- I have the hot pink one! Makes it so easy to distinguish from husby's work laptop now!)
