Champagne Birthday Wish List

September 15, 2015

I’ve been knee deep in party planning for Liam’s 3rd birthday next month and have kind of forgotten that my own birthday is coming up. A few friends have reminded me, asking what my plans are. Truthfully, I hadn’t given it much thought until the opportunity to visit Waterton popped up and I’m treating it as my birthday getaway with Liam. I love the mountains and am excited to spend the weekend there with Liam and some girlfriends (but not excited for the 5 hour drive). I do think mimosas should be in order at some point because it’s my champagne birthday, I turn 29 on the 29th.

While I always cherish time with friends and family more than gifts for my birthday, it’s always fun to put together a little wish list.

Champagne

  1. More weights + 21 Day Fix Extreme – I really loved the 21 Day Fix Program and hope to get my hands on Extreme some day. I do want to add some more hand weights to my collection though. I have 3, 5, and 10 pounds but want to add some 8, 12, and maybe 15’s in there as well.
  2. New perfume – I just ran out of my favourite Betsey Johnson perfume and would love a new bottle, or something similar.
  3. The new Mindy Kaling book – because Mindy is awesome, obviously
  4. Plaid blanket scarf – I need another scarf like I need another hole in my face, but I have yet to add a blanket scarf to my collection and they just seem so cozy!
  5. Gift certificates to Sephora, to restock my favourite makeup that’s running out and Dynamite or basically anywhere that I can replenish my fall/winter wardrobe.
  6. Hunter Boots – because Liam’s getting a pair for his birthday and it’s not fair that he has some and I don’t!
  7. The usual dream items – a vacation, a personal chef, a total house cleaning, or just a new house in general, complete with three bedrooms and a big garage that I can convert partially into a home gym. I will never stop wanting those things. Ever.
  8. A bottle of tasty champage – duh, it’s my champagne birthday!

Seriously though, time with family and friends and maaaybe a good meal are all this girl needs.

Who else is celebrating a birthday this month?
I know Kaella, Tawnya and Laura are!

    Did you get Liam’s Hunters at Winners? I saw a bunch of cute adult pairs there last weekend; hopefully you’ll get some at the RD location.

    Happy 2 week countdown!

    Yay, I’m excited to help celebrate your birthday in Waterton! And sounds like we will definitely need to cheers some champagne for all you ladies birthdays that weekend 🙂 (That’s an awkward sentence but I can’t be bothered to rewrite it, haha). Hope you get some things on your list tho! I can’t wait to read Mindy’s book (although, I listened to her last one on audio and really enjoyed it so I might do that again).

      There’s also a couple local shops here that I want to give all of my money too.

      I LOVE your boots and lipstick that you posted. I’m running out of all of my daily makeup essentials, but also want to get a new lipstick colour and I’m thinking something berry or wine coloured. Good for you for treating yourself. Much deserved!

    Ooh you’ve given me some birthday gift ideas! Brian is already asking for some ideas and the only thing I could come up with is a gift card to get my hair done. New hair and 3 hours of alone time? Perfection to me!

      Yes! That’s something I forgot to include – getting my hair done, toes done, anything to pamper myself and get me out of the house!!
