Birthday Giveaway & Hermes Wish List..

I'm taking a break from my regular post this week to have a little birf-day fun ...

It's actually strange that I'm drawing attention to my birthday, since I'm the girl, who does everything possible, to avoid having anyone celebrate my birthday!  Friends get really frustrated because I always come up with excuses why we don't need to celebrate me.  I don't know why I don't like anyone making a fuss over me.  I've always subscribed to "it's more blessed to give than to receive". That's why I'm giving ya'll gifts for my birthday! Could it be I'm secretly trying to make up for boring you to death?  Giving you gifts for putting up with me!  How's that for a fair trade?  Sorry if you feel you are getting the short end of the stick, but hey it is "all about moi", right?  Well, at least this week!  

Since we are talking birthdays, don't you hate it when people ask, "What do you want for your birthday?".  Hummm... that question always has me stumped.  I did a little research and here is what I came up with.  Bet they'll be sorry they asked.

 Did they really want to know?

I'm seeing orange...

Under benches....

Under tables...

in nooks and crannies all over my house....

So what is in all those orange boxes....
  hope it's this...Even though stats show people don't really wear watches anymore.  I'll call it arm candy...

or this...totally chic for taking blog photos..No one will ever guess that my photography skills suck... bout this little number?  they will be thinking "cool belt" instead noticing the size of my waist, right?

Aren't we all suppose to aspire to own a Birkin Bag, named for singer, song writer Jane Birkin?  Not really, at $25,000 - 85,000, I'm kinda like my friend Pam, who says something that expensive better have wheels, drink gas and ride my butt around.  

After all this girl bought'm all anyway...

or may be something for the home probably 
more in the price range...

Naaaah...forget the print...lets "go big or go home" we are talking...Need a couple of these to make pillows and a few more to hang on the wall....YES!

Of course any good designer will pop color around the room, so we might need this tray to make the scarves sing!  while you are at it, I'll take the entire room  please....

Oh, and one more thing...
The avalon blanky...need I say more...

it's like jewelry for the sofa...perfectly accessorized...

more arm candy...

I'll take any color....i'm not that picky i swear!

Heck, I'll even take the Carolina Blue (UNC) one, He might spring for this one since it's his alma mater colors and they are playing this weekend in the Sweet Sixteen....

 My daughter hates "Carolina blue " though, she is a student at NC State, their colors are red.  They are playing this weekend too, so here's a little something red just for Becks....

 I think this is the only red thing I have ever wanted other than a pair of red bottomed shoes, but hey, there is always a first right?  Why not let it be Hermes...

I even found the perfect birthday cake...

The perfect flowers...

A girl can dream on her birthday can't she?  If not then, when?
