I started a blog post last week about how we don’t really do Mother’s Day/Father’s Day gifts, especially this year because we have a whole bunch of big projects coming up soon (baby’s room, new fence, bathroom update, maybe even getting the house painted!), but then Andy totally surprised me with the sweetest, most thoughtful (early) Mother’s Day gift, the book “You’re Doing a Great Job! 100 Ways You’re Winning at Parenting.” It looks hilarious and I can’t wait to read it!
It’s great timing because this is 100% my life right now, and It’ll be great to have a book to read when I’m up at midnight tossing and turning! (If you like mysteries, I’ve also been alternating between this series and this series, which are both fantastic.)
Before The Best Husband Ever suprised me with a gift, I’d started a Mother’s Day wishlist of all the things I would secretly ask for if I were to ask for anything, mostly things I’d probably never really buy myself in real life but that of course I would love to have. I’m naturally so boringly practical, though, that even a fake list of things makes me like, but do I really need it?! Haha. But that makes it EVEN MORE FUN to play, right?
- This book, of course!
- I want every single pillow at Target right now, including this pink striped one … which would look awfully good in our family room, hmmm…
- Pineapple soap dispenser — ok, this I might actually get because it would be perfect in our guest bath
- Polka dot cocktail shaker for all those fruity cocktails I’m going to make as soon as I can drink again
- The pink luggage that Bri at designlovefest designed for Target is SO GOOD
- Rainbow keychain — hey, it’s totally practical
- I like simple jewelry and would wear these pretty diamond-shaped earrings from Cleveland-based Bombay Taxi Boutique all the time
- Pom pom block heels — size 7 please!
- I saw this punchy orange jumpsuit in the Anthropologie window the other day and think it’s the cutest thing. The fact that it wouldn’t fit me is irrelevant!
So, tell me, what would you put on your fake, or real, wishlist?
