Twas the night before my birthday when all through the house…
Okay, that’s all I got, but it was a good start right?!
For some reason, I am really excited about my birthday this year. Last year, I snuck into work hoping no one knew, went home and had a mini photo shoot with my daughter in our over-sized bed, and went to sleep. I also went out to eat with friends the next day, and that was literally the highlight of my week!
But this year…
Oh this year… I planned for this birthday. My trip, my photos, my dinner, and my lounge party. I am so excited about this!!
Lately, I’ve had people randomly ask me what I wanted for my birthday, and I am always speechless (which doesn’t happen that often people). Like in the moment, I really don’t know!
So I was given the brilliant idea to create a blog post about what I would potentially want, if someone wanted to just go “pick up” something, or do something extremely nice for ya girl!
But then I thought… There are levels to this! **In my dramatic voice**
So my list starts off with a few affordable gifts, and goes up to a few expensive gifts for my readers who have Warren Buffett money, and never told me. 🙂
And if this is in fact Warren B. reading this right now, a few stock shares will suffice, hun. 🙂
First off, I am a mother first. So I will never pass up on any opportunity to get extra diapers, supplies for the house, or even food! Like can you really resist NOT stopping in the $1 area of Target, or NOT grabbing a few sippy cups from Walmart!? Nah sis, I can’t. In my eyes, you can never have enough sippy cups!!! I also would never pass any opportunities to go to CFA, and get a cobb salad (no tomato), or a large bowl on mac and cheese.
Yes it’s that good.
This will be the only actual materialist item on my list because honestly, I am sick of stuff. Working at one of the biggest outlet malls in Texas for 6 years is draining. Literally. And it’s all fun and games, until you have to move that crap to another house or apartment. UGH! Having a child has literally made me more of a minimalist. I won’t lie, I still have tons of shoes, and clothing, but when it comes to actually going to the store to buy it, I just don’t have the energy anymore.
And I know Chanel is the cliche’ brand for women all around the world, but I’ve been wearing this perfume for about 5 years now, and I ALWAYS get stopped in my tracks and asked; “What on God’s green earth are you wearing?”
“It’s Chanel Eau Tendre…”
“THE PINK ONE!!” I always add.
I don’t know if it’s the amber, quince, or jasmine notes in this perfume, but it just does something to me!
Travelling has literally become a HUGE part of my life, and honestly I think it happen when I came back from Europe! There is not a day that goes by when I DON’T have time to look up flights, mock trips, or places to go within a 12 hour radius of Houston.
Yeah it’s that deep.
When I travel, I am in a constant state of euphoria.
So for all of my flight attendant followers, hook a sista up, add me to the buddy pass, AND hook me up with a drink voucher.
Was the drink too much?
Okay, my bad.
The flight will be more than enough.
If numbers 1-3 aren’t really up your alley of things you would like to bless little ol’ soul like me with, but you have hands from the Gods and would love to offer car services; just know this is equally important as any other thing that maybe on this list.
Why are women so hard on cars?
Why am I so hard on cars? < This is me taking accountability for my own flaws. Although studies show that men are better drivers that women.
I don’t know how that happen. That article also went on to say unless you are a women over the age of 40, you are considered a bad driver. But honestly, I can’t wait
15 14 more years to finally become the driver I was “destined” to be.
And these pot holes in Houston AND Indianapolis, don’t help my issue.
So in the mean time, I’ll just pay off my car, and get all the things done to it big or small.
And I could use your help of course. 🙂
Now, speaking of cars… This is for the big dogs.
If you recently hit the lottery, and have the spirit of Oprah, you can always just buy me a new car!
Alright now, if this is you, here are you options.
I didn’t wanna just jump to the big boy, and like I said before, there are levels to this. So here are three tiers for you to choose from ($20k, $40k, and $60k). I guess it depends on how much you love me, but I know that Cayenne is calling your name!!
2019 Polaris Slingshot
2019 Jeep Wrangler
2019 Porsche Cayenne
These three cars have always been on my MUST BUY list, so either me or you. 🙂
And lastly, although monetary gifts were not on the list because I would never actually come out and ask you for money, that doesn’t mean that a birthday offering would be turned down. Lol
I also need a new phone, but you know, I can continue to talk to my watch, and answer calls with my head phones. Lol.
Peace, Love and Libra!
P.S. October 5th is my actual birthday… that’s tomorrow.
Dedicated to my mama. 🙂 Here are your options ma’am.
