current obsessions wednesday: birthday list!!!

finally. ilene did it.
created a brand new list of current obsessions for wednesday.
not that it's hard for me to come up with things i'm obsessed with
because there is so much eye-candy around, whether in blog-world or just around.

so this week's current obsession is...
[ilene's birthday list!]

mom always asks me weeks in advance for christmas and birthday lists
so i thought i'd be good and get one together now (you reading, mom? hehe.)

i'm a couple of weeks in advance. b-day isn't until october 1st.
so it's all good.
[but did you write that down? yeah, grab a pen and paper.
birthday is october 1st.
okay, you got it? good!]

[fuji instax mini 7]
this has forever been on my list of things.

[a wide lens for my camera]

[accessories galore, including these sweet tights from modcloth]
i love accessories because you can do so much to any outfit
with just an extra touch of this and that.

some fall dresses - maybe even ones you can transition for winter wear.
(especially now that i'm in the south i don't have to worry about tons or layers or tons of snow - woohoo!)
still loving this beauty from modcloth.

[first season of modern family]
to be released on DVD September 21st!

[for my sister and brother-in-law to come visit!]

[for ryan to celebrate with me and my family in SC]
he already said that he would - so i kinda already have this wish granted. yipee!

[side note: so this pic cracks me up. i was getting impatient to take the picture
so i just decided to make weird faces. i love ryan's face too. he's like, what the...?]

then there are other super random things that i am wishing upon my birthday candle, such as:

more art supplies for etsy and other artistic projects

sephora/ulta giftcard

3. plane ticket to Chicago (hehe! had to throw that one in there.)

film for fuji instax if i get one of those babies!

cupcake from MORE or Mollie's...or even a sugar cookie from sweet mandy b's

this list is very different from most of my other current obsession posts,
but i'm realizing that a lot of the things on my birthday list have to do with people.

if i'm with the people whom i love most on my birthday,
i'd take them all any day over any of these things.

though might be a close call against the cupcake and sugar cookie. hmmm.

oh and this actually will be my first birthday at home with family since i graduated high school!
crazy, right? i'm defintely looking forward to being home with family!
love it.

[happy wednesday, friend!]
