Currently Coveting: Bday Wish List Edition

I ain't even playing around with this wishlist peeps!  Is it ridiculously unlikely that I will get these items? Yes.  But it's fun to dream big sometimes.  I'll let you in on a little secret...I already gifted myself with the Hayden + Harnett purse.    I've had my eye on it practically all summer and when it went on sale I decided to go for it.  At $118, it's usually more than I spend on a purse, but I figured if I was stalking for as long as I was, it was worth it.  I got it in the mail a few days ago and I am in love!  Look for it in a "What I Wore" post soon!

Okay, on to the others. I'm going top to bottom, left to right:

Tucker leopard print top.  And this ain't the Target line ladies!  Unfortunately, because if it was, the odds would be a lot higher of me getting it! I did snatch up two dresses from the Tucker for Target line, and I am really happy with them.  They fit great, which for a gal like me who is skinny on top, and wider in the hips and butt, is no easy task.

Hayden + Harnett LANGLEY tote in Chevron print.

Kendra Scott earrings. Let's keep the collection going!

Here's where I get really crazy:

A pimp french door refrigerator.  You have no idea how long I have been wanting one of these.  I have this teeny tiny, super basic fridge from eight years ago when we got married (a wedding present, so I can't complain).  It was fine when there were just two of us, who were working full-time and eating most meals out, but now that we are a family of four and I actually have to keep the fridge filled, it is so not working.  It's always filled to the brim, items teetering on top of others, leftovers getting lost in the back only to be found moldy on fridge clean-out day.  Gross, but true.  I mean, let's get real, I think this new fridge is a necessity? No?

A pair of pillows in the ever popular Schumacher Chiang Mai fabric.  Yes, it's a bit played out, but boy do I still love the print.  And I think it is exactly what my entry bench ordered.  I can't really stand the thought of spending so much on pillows though.  When is someone going to make a decent knock-off of this fabric already?

Large Wicker Bull Head from Ballard Designs. My most realistic item in the bunch.  I just adore this guy.

And, another shot in the dark: Front-load washer and dryer-preferably in this pretty turquoise.  My washer and dryer are the same exact situation as my fridge.  Eight years old, wedding present, too small.  I'm tired of doing 20 loads of laundry a day.  I could cram way more stuff in these and get it all done in half the time.  Another necessity right?  At least for my sanity.  Those laundry piles can really get to you after awhile.

Okay, there you have it.  And you only have until next Monday to get it all to me.  Did I mention I am going to be 29?  Not quite sure how to deal with that yet.  But I'm sure any of these pressies will make the dealing go much smoother.


  1. Happy (early) Birthday! 29?!?! Oh it's been a while since I've seen that number, I wasn't even married at 29- LOL! Anyway, I've got a LG fridge like that and a front loader washer and dryer. Like the fridge (not sure I would buy the style again), but a good solution to the front loader is to get the top loader without the agitator. A little cheaper and does a great job with cleaning. The agitator is what beats the clothes to death. I love my front loader, but I do have to leave the door cracked or it can get a bit musty smelling. Just my two cents. And I totally need some of those pillows too!

  2. Happy Early BIRTHDAY!!! So exciting! I love your list... I'd go for the fridge before the front-loaders. My front loaders have issues (kind of like Dobby's and more) especially if you have main level wash. But that's boring house wife stuff! Enjoy your birthday "week"! :)

  3. my french door fridge is my LOVE .. when i gutted the house i gutted EVERYTHING so it was a must buy! .. i still need my washer and dryer - and i'm coveting the Samsung one's!!!! .. i think i'll be asking for donations soon from family and friends :o)

  4. I must be getting "old" because the appliances are also on my wish list. LOL!
    Love love the top too. Can't blame a girl for dreaming. :)
    Happy birthday to you!

  5. It looks like we're almost bday buddies!!! My birthday is the 19th (but I'll be 30 aaaaah, I wish I was only going to be 29, lol) =) I seriously heart the washer and dryer. I've been coveting those things forever and know there is no chance I'll ever get them, lol. Great bday list! Thanks for sharing!!!

  6. Loving your picks- esp the bag. How nice to gift for yourself... I do that too! :)

  7. best thing on that list?

    the washer and dryer.

    HANDS DOWN! hope you get a pretty lil set :)

  8. I totally have a small fridge and washer too and I have the same problem - packed to the rim and doing a lot of washes. But, since I live in Europe, everything is smaller too.

    Hope you get something on your wish list. Happy Birthday!

  9. Jackie, I am not tired of Chiang Mai either. I have been eyeing some pillows on Etsy in the indigo and mocha colorway. Ahhh, a girl can dream! Happy early birthday -- 29 forever!

  10. I got the diamond print dress, but HOW did I miss that fabulous top?
