Now They Say It’s MY Birthday
I love presents. Yes, I said it. I know that people are supposed to be all humble and like “oh, I don’t need any earthly possessions. All the gifts I need are love and happiness and health and that’s all.” Yes, all those things are great and everyone should have them, but c’mon- getting presents is FUN. There, I said it.
I would also like to point out that I love to give presents as well. And buy fancy cards that my husband says we can’t afford. And gift-wrap like I had my own room in Candy Spelling’s house. So it’s definitely a two-way street. Presents are awesome and anyone who says otherwise is LYING.
|Thomas Paul Scrimshaw Plates|
I am obsessed with these plates for obvious reasons. Part of the reason that I want this set is because I am already the proud owner of the Moby Platter. I mentioned in a previous Mall Madness Monday post that Steve was in a tizzy over this plate because it was plastic. In fact, these are all plastic. However I think it’s the perfect casual set to use outdoors. Do I have an outdoor space? No. Of course not. But I’m thinking of the future/things I want immediately.

|This Means War on DVD|
I don’t care what the critics say, Steve and I saw this in the theater and I loved it. Then again, I’m slightly biased because Reese Witherspoon is my favorite actress of.all.time. I have almost every single one of her movies on DVD (and some on VHS!) so I need this to round out my collection.
I only discovered The Bloggess a few months ago, but apparently Jenny Lawson has been at this for years. Around the time I started reading was when she announced her first book was coming out. Obviously I’m all for supporting my favorite bloggers in any capacity, and releasing an actual book is like a huge deal. Plus she’s just super funny and I can’t wait to read this.

|Touch Cut Away Tank via Roster|
So this tank has been available forever in Roster, but only the Sox version. I am always on the hunt for more girly Bruins things to wear (not a pink hat, but do jerseys have to be so boxy?) and it wasn’t until April that I finally saw this version pop up. Probably because I had been personally begging Alyssa Milano to show us a little love. Well maybe it’s more cause the B’s finally took home the cup. Anyway, this one has to go on the birthday list because I could never spend $60 on a tank top for myself. Well I could, but not even a Bruins logo would convince Steve that that was a worthwhile purchase.
|Initial Signet Ring by Jennifer Zeuner|
I have a love/hate relationship with Lauren Conrad, because I am bitterly jealous of all of her success but I love everything she wears. When I saw her sporting one of these monogrammed signet rings I was all like “ahhhh omg I have to have it.” I like that it’s old school (Prince William wears one instead of a wedding ring!) but I would rock it on my middle finger a la LC and not on the pinky like the leader of an Italian mob family. I would be happy with either and “L” or my full on initials, but again, minorly obsessed with gold at the moment. Also it could really be from anywhere, because this one is almost $200. Maybe if I had LC money this would fly, but I mean, I could get like twenty dresses on clearance for that at Forever 21.

|Cards Against Humanity via Amazon|
If you’ve never played this game before, you probably have never had real actual fun in your life. Also you’re probably a good person. This game is for bad people who know they’re going to hell and might as well have fun before their handbasket arrives. It is basically a super-offensive version of my favorite game, Apples to Apples. Make sure to play in a judge-free zone. I tried it once with friends and I absolutely need my own.
Of course I am in no way implying that I am expecting to receive all of these things or that I need them all. This is just a momentary fantasy in which I’m indulging myself via a birthday wish list. I promise to be less selfish tomorrow.
