Birthday Wish List

Okay okay, so today marks exactly 2 months until my birthday. Now, for most people 2 months is a long time and there's no way they'd start planning their birthdays so early. But I LOVE my birthday (even though I fear getting old) and I love having big plans.

Now, last month some of you may remember me talking about plans for my 27th birthday. I've actually come up with another idea involving the Renaissance Festival because I ADORE Ren Fest and it would be a lot of fun! But we're not talking about my birthday PLANS today.

A few of you have left comments wondering what I want for my birthday because some of you crazy, kind people want to get me gifts. WHAT? Seriously!? I mean, I already knew that the blog world is pretty much AMAZING. But for real, that's way too kind!

I always have a running wish list of things that I would love. You can find that here. It includes a way to get little presents to me so if you really feel compelled, there you go.

For those of you that think, "Krysten, you're cool and all but not THAT cool" but would still like to see a few of my favorite wish list items, here you go!
Lovely lilac scented McCall's candles. I have a honeysuckle one from this company and it's AMAZING! I want more!

A pocket watch necklace because they are SO pretty!

This print, I've been in love with it forever.

This dress because it's just so pretty.

Cowboy boots. I don't know why, I just want some!

So there you have it, a link to my wish list as well as a select few items from my list.

Happy Friday all!

Fun list! My problem is that there are so many things when I see them I think, "I want that!" and then when someone asks me what I want I always draw a blank!
