I Pink Puffy Heart September. And A Birthday Wish.

I love September for a myriad of reasons. Despite the ninety-seven degree weather and 110% humidity that may indicate otherwise, September, for me, has always meant that the early beginnings of Fall are just around the corner. And who doesn't love Fall? The clothes, the apple picking, the pumpkin spice lattes.. It tickles me silly to think about how much I love this season and how excited I am to experience it with a new baby!

September also means two of my favorite birthdays. My little brother will be turning a whopping nineteen on September 3rd. I don't even want to think about he'll be celebrating his first birthday away at college. Something tells me it won't include power rangers and funfetti cupcakes. Is it wrong that in my head he's still approximately four years old? Stop growing up, Woobs. I can't stand it!

Yours truly will also be celebrating her twenty-seventh birthday on September 14th. And yes, I did just have to take a minute and count backwards to figure out how old I really am. Not that I think I'm old! It's just that after 21, I feel that all the years just tend to blur together.

Let's do a little birthday reflection, shall we? Last year, at this time, I was hinting to Hubs thats I wished to be the proud new owner of a Canon DSLR. My wish was granted and my parents also gifted me with a couple if Tiffany's lovelies.

Fast forward to this year's wishlist. What does a twenty-seven year old brand new Mom wish for on her birthday?

Yes, that's right. A nursing shawl. Seriously. Who. Am. I?



Ahhhh, how times have changed.

  1. I was about to say that is a cute shirt... until I read further. I would have no use for that at this time. =)

  2. September is a great month for birthdays! (I'll be 27 on the 17th!) I would LOVE a Canon DSLR camera - uh-oh, does this mean at my birthday next year I'll be a new mom wanting a nursing shawl too?!

  6. Happy birthday month to you!!! And I love that a nursing shall is on your bday wish list :)

    I will be 30 this year (shriek), and for the past few years, I have asked for appliances, bedding, paper shredder, home decor items... nothing I would have asked for years ago! I suppose time changes us :)

  8. It's funny you say that because my brother made fun of me a few years ago for asking for luggage and knives for Christmas...now that he has his own place, he gets it. We've already joked around that this Christmas will be hilarious because I'll be swooning over swaddle blankets and monitors. How life changes so quickly!
