My Birthday Goodies

Oh, how I LOVE birthdays!! I now present to you, a photo essay of how I spent all of my birthday money in one mall trip, complete with a fashion show by moi!

I am almost all out of my current Yankee Candle (Island Mango or something like that). I wanted to buy a big candle with Storm Warning scent (I think that was the name of it) but they didn't have it at the store.

So rather than buy a big candle of a scent I might not like, I bought a bunch of tarts to try out. The one burning in the tart burner in the photo is French Vanilla and it's REALLY good. That one might be a winner.

I also got Sweet Strawberry, Splash of Rain, Ocean Water, Buttercream and Chocolate Cappuccino. I'll let you know which scent wins out.

These are the adorable black heels I bought, only to realize when I got home that they gave me two different sizes, so I have to go back and get the right size. Also, that close-up makes me look like my leg is the size of an elephant and I swear it's not! :)

I decided, after not wearing earrings for years, to go ahead and buy some. The problem is, with long hair, you can never really see them. Here they are with me in a regular pose:

So it won't show well unless I pull my hair back on one side like this:

or do a weird head-tilt pose, like this:

and even then you can't really see them.

Okay, since this is a lot of photos for Blogger to handle all at once, I'll show off my new skirt, necklace and adorable wedge heels in a separate post!

Aww, thanks, Chase!! I have you to compete with, so I knew I'd better put out my best, lol!

Aren't those shoes just the coolest ever?!!! I was dying when I saw them.

I tried them on for my husband and noticed that something didn't feel right. Then I later saw the different sizes on the bottom...bah!

And I wanted to wear them so badly! Don't know when I'll find the time to get over there and return them for the right size.
