A Greedy Moment

My birthday is tomorrow. I love my birthday. LOVE IT!! I'm getting some great presents too. My mom's getting me some clothes that I want and I've tried on. My sisters are getting me something. I have no idea what Wendell's giving me, but I'd be happiest if he just stays within his budget. (Going into your overdraft is NOT a good birthday present.)

Yet, pardon me while I just revel in a bunch of materialistic greed. If I could have anything in the world for my birthday (not including the stuff I know I'm getting), this is what I'd ask for.

1. Wheat grinder. My grandma gave us, like, 200 lbs of wheat, but I have no way to use it.

2. Bundt pan. Doesn't everyone need a bundt pan?

3. 2 Cheap king size pillows to fill the pillow shams on my king size bed.

4. One of those cart thingys that you pull behind your bike with kids in it. I'd love one!

5. A skirt. Or two. I have only 2 skirts right now and I alternate them on Sundays. I'd love a couple more so I could wear a different one every week.

Aaaw! Happy Birthday, Jenna! I hope it turns out to be a great day.

If I were able, I'd send you a wheat grinder. Love mine. Love it. I think the Church has a deal with the Blendtec folks because I got mine at $100 discounted price...

Then again, skirts would be nice also.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a bike trailer, too.

Clearly we have a few common items on our wish lists...

I need a wheat grinder too! Your list sounds great. I think I should add a couple of your wish list items to mine. (Too mad my birthday isn't until November...)

Happy Birthday girl! I hope you get great stuff...I love stuff!

Jen said...

I love my birthday too!

Hey, if you are getting a bundt, get the pampered chef one. It's stoneware, so you can actually bake a cake in the microwave in 10 minutes.

Happy Birthday, Jenna! If I could steal the bike trailer from my sister (she never uses it), I'd totally give it to you! Have a great birthday, and email me when your schedule calms down!

Happy Birthday!

I have one of those bike strollers, now I'm trying to learn how to ride the bike. It's scarey. P.S. I've had the stroller for over 4 years. This is the first time I have used it. I've riden once and fell off twice. Humiliating. I shouldn't have just told you that but anyways, it's not been such a grea investment but I'm not giving up yet. And I think your list was way too modest. Be greedy! I hope your day was wonderful! You deserve it!

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Jenna- Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!

Tara said...

Jenna! I guess I stopped by at a good time- just in time to wish you a happy birthday! I asked Alisa if she was still in touch with anyone from our Wyview days and she told me about your blog. You are just too funny! I loved reading through and seeing what you are up to in life! I'm so happy for you!

Happy Birthday! You should be a little greedy, its your day to do what you want and get what you want!

Allison Weenig said...

Happy, happy birthday Jenna dear! Love the wish list.

It was fun meeting you at Blogapalooza :)

Heather said...

Happy Birthday!!!

(That makes you a Taurus right?)

I got a wheat grinder attachment for my kitchenaid that is a workhorse. We are some regular folk now thanks to it.

(what do you think about all the wheat mania? the price of wheat is going to skyrocket!! hurry!!! help!!!)

Happy Birthday!

When you said you were going to be wishful and greedy, I expected a much more lavish list!

We have one of those bike trailer thingys. It's just a cheap one from Wally World. I've only used it a couple times, because I'm so weak! I get tired much faster when I'm pulling it behind my bike, and I only had one kid in it!

Holly said...

So, I'm a bit late... but HAPPY BIRTHDAY anyway! I hope it was good.

Lara said...

HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY! I hope you got everything you wanted! Your list sounds PERFECT for my birthday too!

Janice said...

I know I am late, but Happy birthday. I need two king size pillows to fill my new pillow shames too...

Jeanie said...

My wish list is identical to yours. I don't think you're being greedy ;)

Jeanie said...

PS I hope you had a happy birthday!!

I agree--I have a bundt pan and love it. It doesn't get used a lot, but when I need one, it's there:)

Hope your birthday was great and you got some things off your list!
