Dream Big

Let the gift giving commence! Yeah... I know we just had Christmas, but my birthday is less than a month away. :) Since my birthday is so close to Christmas, it's sort of like Christmas never ended. We actually haven't had Christmas with some of our family members yet, so really it hasn't ended!

I was inspired by a wish list that I saw on another blog... you can see the list that I fell for here. (I got the "Good Morning" mug idea from her blog)

Here is my Birthday wish list:

Birthday Wish List

Since I love to read, my wish list would not be complete without a great book. Some really books that I've read recently include: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, and the Harry Potter Books.

TOMS shoes have been on my wish list for a while now. I even blogged about the shoes in a previous blog. Today I saw a girl wearing this black glittery pair of TOMS... and I fell in love with them. Plus someone in need gets a free pair with a purchase, so if anyone gives you a pair as a gift they're giving to a great cause at the same time.

I drink a cup of coffee basically every morning, and I would love to drink my coffee out of this "Good Morning" mug. It's so fun! Plus one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was drinking out of it one morning... and I'll let you in on a little secret... I watch that show pretty much all of the time once in a while when I can. ;)

I mentioned a book above that I read recently, and it was written by the real life family who inspired the movie The Blindside. While watching the movie, I noticed a beautiful watch worn by Sandra Bullock who played Leigh Anne Tuohy. I did a little bit of google-ing and found out who made the watch. It's pretty darn pricey, but hey... a girl can dream! This isn't called a wish list for nothing, you know.

Not everything that I have on my wish list is a thing. On the night that Nate proposed, he took me to an amazing restaurant in Denver called Vesta Dipping Grill. They have the most delicious food, and I would love to spend my birthday enjoying a great meal at Vesta. Yum!

Last but not least, I would love to win the HGTV Dream Home for my birthday! *dream big* You can enter every day through February 18th, and I can assure you that I'm entering every day for my chance to win this birthday dream gift. Wouldn't that be a great birthday gift?!

I don't expect any of these things for my birthday, but hey... it's fun to dream! Of anything on my wish list, I'd love to have a nice dinner at Vesta Dipping Grill. It would taste way better than a watch or house any day. 

What are your favorite birthday memories or gifts that you have received??
