Remember when you were a kid and you wrote out a birthday list.

Silly things I want for my birthday:

1.  The Young Victoria on DVD.
Because it has turned into one of my favorites of all time and I want to re-watch it constantly.  

2.  This record player in that amazing, amazing color.  It's been on my wish list for a few years now.  
When I was a elementary school kid, that's what we listened to, records.  We had a record player in our basement with a collection of kids records.  We played those things until they were scratched and warped.  I've also been collecting a few records here and there at thrift stores.  I need to have something to play them on.  Not to mention the stack of vintage classics my parents have in their basement.  I'm sure they wouldn't mind if I borrowed them, right Mom and Dad?

3.  This print, which I am smitten with.  
Found in the shop lovelysweetwilliam on Etsy.  

4.  A few of these beauties.
That oxidized grey is stunning, don't you think?  I have doll sized hands though.  Do you think they come in a size 4 1/2?  

5.  Don't laugh now....The Human Target Soundtrack.  
I never saw a second of the show, but just look at the composer.   My favorite.  I've heard that he thinks this is one of his best.  I don't know how it could possibly be better than the Battlestar soundtracks.  They are still on consistent repeat for me, even years later.  

Birthday lists are fun because they aren't anything you "need".  They are just for the heck of it.  What silly things would be on your list right now?

I still cry at the end, every single time, Kaley. It just melts me into a giant puddle.

I love the Young Victoria, too! I am going to add it to my wish list! :)
Here are the random things on my birthday list: children's books, camelback water bottle, the movie Wait until Dark, a veggie brush...

Is that the Wait Until Dark with Audrey Hepburn? I've seen that one! I also saw the play years ago when I was in college. It was fun when all the lights when out in the theater and the actors just lit matches.
What books are on your list?

leslie.kidd said...

Yes, that's the movie! :) I love old movies!!

Here the books:
The Big Picture Story Bible
Pajama Time!
The Loud Book!
Olivia the Pig books
Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy
{I dressed up as Fancy Nancy for our Book Character Party we had at school a few weeks ago :) so fun}
Mr. Putter & Tabby catch the cold

Do you know any of them?

I adore Sandra Boynton's books!! "Barnyard Dance" is one of my favorites. I've also read "Oliva" and "Fancy Nancy". So cute!

I also love Robert Mccloskey's books, especially "Make Way for Ducklings".

And I love the illustrations in "How I Became a Pirate."

Last night I read "Sylvie" by Jennifer Sattler to the little girls I was babysitting for. It's adorable as well.

I love kids books!

How fun! Enjoy a good cry at the end of the movie. That's how I usually end it, at least. EVERY SINGLE TIME.
