Birthday time

My birthday is on Saturday. Normally I don't make a fuss or even admit it's my birthday. Most of the time I forget how old I actually am. Am I the only one who does this?
For some reason this year I'm sort of excited it's my birthday. I always make a big deal out of my kids' birthdays but never my own.

So for anyone who wants to buy me a birthday present here are 10 things I wouldn't mind receiving (I won't actually receive any of these but it's nice to dream)

1. A day away at the spa - complete with any spa treatments I'd like and a continuous flow of wine slushies
2. Some cute graphic tees - like this one from Old Navy
 
3. Monthly mani-pedis on the schedule for the next year and someone who will push me out of the house to go without feeling guilty
4.  A new phone - too bad the release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 won't happen until 2015 now. It looks so awesome
Samsung Galaxy Concept 
5.  A super cute daily planner to keep me organized at work. I love this one from Heart & Arrow - Whitney is a creative genius!
Seafoam Hourly Notepad Day Planner, Deskpad, Custom Notepad, 8.5x11in 
6.  Send me on a fun family vacation - at no expense to us, of course. I'm thinking a Europe tour - oh can someone buy my whole family passports too?
7. A housekeeper - I need someone to clean my house. I hate cleaning. It's a never-ending battle. If this housekeeper did laundry too, well that would just be icing on the cake!
8.  Astrology reading from Desiree at Simply Sun Signs - I may or may not stalk her blog on the regular
9. A body that will allow me to eat as much dark chocolate and fountain Diet Coke that I want without any health ramifications for eating like a teenager.
10. A new pair of running shoes, because let's be honest -- #9 isn't happening so I'm going to need some cute shoes to get me motivated to workout more often.
A bonus, why not it's my birthday. World peace. I mean everyone wants that for their birthday right?

So are you big into birthdays? Or is it just another day?

Race Ready #InASnap

I completed my first timed race of the year a couple weeks ago, boy am I out of shape! I was slow, like really slow. I need to step up my game but I just can't get the weather to cooperate. It's either raining or scorching hot outside, I can't seem to get a nice day for running. 


As I was getting ready for this race (why do they have to start so dang early?!) I look down to realize that the night before I missed a section of my legs while shaving. I couldn't possible run looking like that so my Gillette Venus Snap came to the rescue!
This super cute little razor from Gillette is amazing! I love the carrying case (which has ventilation holes in the back). Don't think this is your standard disposable razor, this little gal will get the job done just as well as the full size version. I can't wait for my next vacation, this will be in my bag for sure! 

Now all I need is some good running weather and I'll knock my next race out of the park!

On my bookshelf

I've been slacking on my reading this year. Last year I killed it with 64 books read.. I thought for sure this year I could do 65. Well I got a new job in March and haven't had my two hours of commuting every day to read and my hour long lunch break so I've been slacking in the reading department. I've only read 20 books so I'm 4 books behind schedule -- thanks to Goodreads keepin' track for me :)

I'm currently reading Nadia Knows Best from Jill Mansell. I really like that Jill's books are a quick read, so I decided to try this one out.
I'm always on the look out to add new books to my "to read" list. Anyone have any suggestions?
