Roundup: My Birthday's Next Week!

One week from today I will turn 26. This will be my first year closer to 30 than 20 and my birthday list shows my advancing age. My list includes a new window for the guest room, the stained glass door fixed and a dishwasher.

But for today's sake lets just say that I'm not an (almost) adult & it's totally ok to wish for cute things instead of practical necessities.

I've been dying for a mustard cardigan for a couple of years.

My cheap boots are no longer cutting it. Time to invest in a good pair.

This is essentially my slogan so it only fits that it should hang in our bedroom.

I wish I had a fun birthday party to wear this dress to.

Speaking of things I'd love to have hanging in our bedroom.

I'm in desperate need of a cute camera bag.

I've been dying to add a pouf or two to our house.

This skirt is the perfect thing for an almost grown up.

I think it's high time that I get personalized stationary with my new name.

Last year I asked for the black hunters, but this year I think I'd take teal.
Hunter Original Gloss in Teal from Zappos $112.50

I'm not even sure I could tell you how much I'd love portraits of Edie & Layla.
Custom Dog Portrait from Berin Made $84.46
Erin is kindly offering Adventures in Love & Happiness readers 10% off their pet portrait with the code "CUSTOMPET10"

So there you have it, my almost grown up birthday list. If any of you need my address just let me know.

Just last night I woke up my hubs to remind him to kiss me goodnight. I love that poster and definitely should have it in our room too! Happy early birthday!

Everything on this list is fantastic. I've been wanting a good mustard cardigan for a few years now and I just can't seem to find one in my budget. I hope you get one for your birthday! =)

Can you make things more in the price range for a college kid :)

Happy early birthday! My husband turned 26 this year as well, and we had a whole birthday week in honor of his being "on the wrong side of 20," hehe! Also I love that cardigan!

I'm loving the wedding poster! And those boots.. to die for.

Don't worry, 26 isn't too bad (yet). But I definitely had a bit of a freak out about being over the 25 mark, lol!
