With my Birthday and Christmas right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to put a little wish list together. Surprisingly, there's not a ton of stuff I'm dying for. I mean, like any girl, I would love endless amounts of money to go shopping...but this year, with money being more tight than ever, there is very little that I actually need. (I use the word need very loosely. I don't actually need any of this.) With that being said, it's still fun to think about.

Here's the stuff I'm really hoping for: 

Blown up family pictures for my big vintage frames.

In ivory. Size: King.


I'm not big on jewelry these days. I'm really into dainty and simple. This necklace is perfect and hits at the perfect spot. I'm loving gold right now.

My mom got me Part 2 of this series for my Birthday last year because the rest were sold out. I would love the complete set. This book has changed my life.


Here's some stuff that I've been looking at for fun:

Love this for either a towel rack or for jewelry or scarves.

I've been wanting to do a quirky art collection on my bathroom wall. This would be perfect.

And while we're on the topic of my art wall, I'm really wanting an illustration of a family portrait.

Which reminds me, I also want a painting of Evelyn.

To die! And reasonably priced all things considered. (The longer I look at these, the more I want to move them to the above group.)

This shirt.


OH, and everything from here.

A few things.
We have the bike seat. It is great if you want a bike seat that you can put on and take off quickly. We have ours on mountain bikes b/c we would never take a child mountain biking and I would not leave a seat on my bike to go mountain biking, so we need to take it off when we go. Takes 5 min or less to do that. That is probably the only good thing about this seat. It fits on the stem of the bike you need to have room on the stem. When my husband got a new fork for his mtn bike the stem became too short. We got a spacer for my stem so it could fit on the bike (i think that is the correct term). There is no support for the child beyond the mid back, so when they fall asleep they are resting on your chest as you ride. Knowing that your child's head will sometimes rest on your chest, and always bump your chest when you ride, you will want to get a little helmet that is round. I found one small enough at a bike shop. They don't sell them small enough at target or wal mart! And, my kids like to put their hands on the handle bars when I ride. And it is hard so get on and off the bike with this seat in front of you. And (one more and)it is sort of small, so your child cannot will outgrow it quickly. But, because I like that I can take it off with a snap I deal with all of those cons. If you plan on always taking evie with you when you ride, or if the activities you do on your bike without evie will not be hindered by a bike seat, I suggest getting a cheaper seat that you can attach to the back of the bike. They have higher backs and kids can fit in them longer and the kid does not bump your chest when you ride. Just a personal review of the product.

2. I do toilet paintings. Or I used to. For wedding gifts. I have a few in a shop in town, and I could pick one up for you. I love doing trades, so i could show you my stuff and we could do a trade if you like it.

3. From your other post. Where is liberty market. We live in lakeside now, but i don't recall it when we lived in the valley.
That is all!
