It's my birthday....

So in trying to answer the age old question (what do you want for your birthday?) these last couple weeks, I discovered that I am more acquisitive than I ever thought myself to be. I used to want things a lot, before I was satisfied by the one true thing that can satisfy (yes, I am talking about Jesus). So it has been a long time since I have really wanted a thing. I need things sometimes then I have squeak open the pocket book and buy them, but I rarely say "Oh, I wish I could have..." So I was quite surprised with myself when I started obsessing over a handbag of all things. Especially since I swore years ago that I would never spend more than $20 on a purse or shoes... my poor feet are paying the price now. I also make my own purses (which with the cost of fabric and interfacings cost way more than $20) so why all of a sudden am I obsessing over this:

Michael Kors Hamilton Tote. Ack! Luckily I can't find anywhere that the red one isn't sold out so I am safe. Please do not, I say not, send me links to where it is available. Thank you so much!

Off to work... for my birthday!

Update:
Just got my Birthday Pressie... wanna see?


Box color is right!


Ack! I have never had real perfume before. Yay! Chanel! He listened!
Real Parfum I have never had the real stuff before... and Chanel of all things... I am so lucky! Oh my gosh it smells so good! Goes great with my bunny slippers and robe LOL

  12. Happy Birthday! Have a great day! I am trying not to want fabric. It is so hard. I keep thinking, The Lord is my shepherd I shall not WANT. It doesn't always work but I continue to pray.

  14. Happy Birthday! I think it's wonderful to be caught in a quandary about what you want. It's probably a sign that you are fulfilled in who and what you are. Not a bad thing to be.

  24. Hi Julie, just had to comment on the link for the bag...not only does it describe the bag but also a pair of shoes, a watch and a pair of glasses (possibly sunglasses)! Wouldn't it be awesome if all of those things were included? Just thought you'd enjoy the chuckle...Hope your birthday is a happy one!
