one down...


i picked out a birthday present! and levi already bought it for me! i've been having a really tough time picking out birthday presents...probably because i love surprises so much. but it's really nice to choose something too.

levi and i were looking at this shop together online, and we saw this print. we looked at each other, and at the same time, i said, "that is soooo me" and he said, "that is soooo you."

i know it's a little juvenile being based on a fairy tale and all, but it is just too perfect, and i love it. the princess and the pea has always been my story. you know how i told you yesterday that i was sensitive? i wasn't lying. i'm sensitive in everrrry way, especially to touch and sound. and i love noel young's illustrations. they're so detailed and quirky.

i'd really like these too:

they're from j.crew. aren't they cool?? i will, however, not be getting them. sooooo expensive.

i miiiight get these though:

j.crew again (here and here). there's a skirt there that i like too, but i couldn't find a photo online.

other things on my "dream" birthday list:

- a couch
- a yellow kitchenaid standup mixer
- a big, huge, soft, fluffy, white rug for our bedroom to cover the entire carpet
- lots of pretty skirts
- cute sandals with squishy soles
- an unlimited membership to a pilates studio
- delicious cupcakes
- a golden doodle puppy (isn't that name the silliest??)

i've missed shopping.

  7. OH, KITCHENAID MIXER. I've been lusting after that for the longest time! and it would fit perfectly in with your new navy + yellow kitchen. I've never heard of a golden doodle puppy (who came with that name anyway?!) but I like it already (:

  29. aww! Golden Doodle puppies! A friend of mine just got one of those - - soooo cute! Although I have learned one important thing about myself within the last year: I am not responsible enough for a dog. I thought I was until I got a cat - - talk about freedom. Cats practically take care of themselves and then come purr and cuddle afterwards!

    Anyway, love your blog - -and golden doodles! {Yay for your move, too!}
