Retail Remembers my Birthday

I love signing up for in-store clubs for my favorite places to shop.

Unlike some of my friends, they even remember my birthday (without a reminder from Facebook).

Last year I signed up for the Anthro club and this cute little surprise arrived in the mail for me yesterday to celebrate my birthday. It's a little rope necklace with a tiny candle on it along with a 15% off coupon at Anthropologie. Of course the discount is awesome, but I think the packaging and the card itself is pretty fabulous too. 

I think Sephora has one of the best rewards programs, with their fun free samples and products you can pick with your points. Another great plus to their program is when your birthday comes around, you get a free gift. Last year I got three sticky lip-gloss colors that I still use now. This year, it's a fun eye kit. I'm definitely going to pick this up in the store this weekend!

Know of any other great programs that send you special stuff for your birthday?
Tell me now so I can sign up!

  4. It's become a joke at our house but my husband and I both get coupons from Victoria's Secret for our birthdays! I pass them on to my daughters. It was time to let Victoria go when the sales clerk said she didn't carry my size in the store! LOL!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
