A Sad Birthday Wishlist + a Winner

It's my birthday. Well, if you're reading this on Thursday, February 20, it's my birthday. I always feel so awkward telling people that it's my birthday, because I don't want people to think I'm fishing for...anything. I tend to keep pretty quiet about it, so consider this one of my only birthday posts. Ever. And it's a pathetic one at that. 

Robert asked me what I wanted for my birthday last week. You know what I said? A file cabinet.

I honestly, truly couldn't think of anything else other than that really cute pink file cabinet from CB2. He laughed at me, and then told me no. I suppose you know you're an adult when...

And now for the winner for this past weekend's Saturday giveaway! CONGRATULATIONS to Kristin from Hello Lovely! Email me your info my dear so I can get you your gift card ASAP.

Ha, happy birthday! I was just going to say... you know you're getting old when you start asking for highly functioning gifts your birthday. Hope it was a good one :)

Joelle Duff said...

Joelle Duff said...

I have been coveting that filing cabinet in the aqua/mint color for TWO years! At this point I should just pull the trigger but still can't justify spending that much on a filing cabinet. But still... Cheers to filing cabinets! And happy birthday!!

Joelle Duff said...

Oi, why not? It's so cute!

Joelle Duff said...

Happy birthday, Joelle! Wishing you many cute file cabinets! : )

Happy birthday!! For our first Christmas as a married couple (but our 8th Christmas together), my husband gave me a paper shredder and a vacuum. And I couldn't have been happier! Ahh adulthood...

Joelle Duff said...

Happy Birthday! And, that file cabinet may have just changed my mind about file cabinets...it's so cute!

Joelle Duff said...

Happy Birthday! Filing cabinets are so CLUTCH. I could definitely use one in our office right now! I'm the exact opposite...I make sure everyone knows it's my birthday, the entire week.

Joelle Duff said...

Happy Birthday!! This filing cabinet is so cute, love it!! It would fit perfectly in my office too!

Joelle Duff said...

Happy birthday Joelle!!!! Awww, I hope you had just the most amazing day!!! You deserve it! And don't worry, I feel the same way as you do about birthdays...blah. BUT I absolutely LOVE this file cabinet and in this color!! Now I want it too! I really, really hope you get it...or else, you should definitely treat yo'self!

Joelle Duff said...

That cabinet is too pretty!

Joelle Duff said...

Happy birthday darling! I would totally love that too. Nick would laugh at me. Pink is the best. Hope your day is amazing!

Joelle Duff said...

Happy Birthday, Joelle! I can totally relate- last weekend I decided that a filing cabinet would solve all our organizational problems and got sucked into spray paint tutorials on Pinterest. Now I just need a cabinet!

Joelle Duff said...

Thanks Kate! And I've thought about painting my own, but my DIY projects usually end up absolutely terribly. I figured I may as well just bite the bullet and find a pretty one on my own :) If you do it, though, you'll have to share! I'd love to see how that would turn out!

Joelle Duff said...

Thanks Whitney! And my husband was totally skeptical about the color too...he asked if it was going to go in my studio or in our home office. Needless to say, he was even less excited when I told him our home office (which I share with him)...

Joelle Duff said...

Isn't it Kate??? I think I might just splurge and get it for myself the next time it goes on sale!

Joelle Duff said...

Thank you Jessica! And my day was pretty great - lots of lounging around, doing nothing, and then wine! I will definitely be treating myself to this pretty thing very, very soon :) xoxo

Joelle Duff said...

Thank you Brina! I think every woman needs a pretty file cabinet, don't you?

Joelle Duff said...

Thanks Kate! And I don't know why I'm so quiet about it...I did share a few pics on IG and tweets and whatnot, but I always feel so awkward, like I'm fishing for "happy birthdays" or something - weird, I know!

Joelle Duff said...

Thank you Betty! And isn't it cute??? I've been trying to convince myself that I DON'T need one, because they're always so ugly, but this is definitely the one for me :)

Joelle Duff said...

Thanks Sarah! And I'm all about the practical gifts. I mean, I did ask for tupperware and pyrex for Christmas this year ;)

Joelle Duff said...

Hehe thanks Allison!

Joelle Duff said...

Right??? It is so adorable! I'm going to be splurging soon...

Joelle Duff said...

I wanted that one too! It isn't there any more, which makes me so sad...

Joelle Duff said...

Thanks lady! And I've been wanting a roomba too...again, you know you're an adult when... :)

Joelle Duff said...

Thanks Caroline! And you're right - there's nothing wrong with wanting something functional, as long as it IS cute too :) xo

Joelle Duff said...

Haha it's so true! And thanks so much Jenna :) It was a great day!

Joelle Duff said...

Right??? I feel a splurge coming on soon...

Joelle Duff said...

That is the cutest filing cabinet! Who would hate filing when they have that?! I hope yesterday was awesome!

Joelle Duff said...

Haha right?? Maybe it'll actually motivate me to get organized ;)

Joelle Duff said...

bahaha this is so something I would say!
