My V-Day Wishlist

 Valentines Day is coming up shortly this week! Now I'm not a V-Day hater. I get why people don't like the commercialism, and you should celebrate love every day. But I say heck, what's wrong with creating another special day to celebrate with someone you love? So I like it.
This year we're going low key for V-Day. Such is the life of poor returned PC volunteers and students living on one income. We used to go all out for holidays like this. We're learning to be more holiday budget friendly.
But that doesn't mean I can't dream, right?
Here's my list of thing I've been staring at for the past month.
--This skirt from Eshakti. I just love it, and it's nothing like I have, which always means it's a good addition to your closet.
Women S Casual Clothing , Yellow Skirt
Via Eskakti
--This Precious Pearls dress from ModCloth. Isn't this just the perfect dress for a fancy dinner or a Sunday you feel like dressing up a bit extra?
--I can't decide which one of these I want from Lime Ricki. Which do you like better? You gotta help me choose. 
 














--I've been loving this shirt at Ann Taylor Loft for a while. I really want a shirt that has an exposed zipper in the back.
--And lastly, I like to pretend it's spring and therefore I'm dreaming of wearing this skirt, after seeing it's counterpart on ETellsTales. Doesn't it just scream spring?

And what does Hal want for Valentines day? To get good grades. So pray that his test scores come back high!

Crossing my fingers for his test scores...I remember that all too well!

I love that top skirt.

I like your taste. That dress is to die for!

These are all amazing--you have such classy style! I pretty much love everything you wear. I would love to try that dress (since it's basically fabulous), but I'm not sure if I can pull off a Peter Pan collar...

Torrie said...

Or whatever the heck that collar's called since I have a feeling it's not exactly a Peter Pan...

Ashley said...

Hmmm....I really like both of those bathing suits, but I think I think I like the first one a little more (and I think I might have to get it ) :-)

I LOVE that Modcloth dress. I think I might buy it for one of my showers. Also, I totally understand with the low-key Valentine's day. Since we are getting married next month, we aren't doing anything huge. I told Taylor I really wanted to go to the skating rink after seeing an episode of Honey Boo Boo where Alana goes with her dad haha

CUTE clothes!!

I mainly like Valentine's Day because of the chocolate...and the half price chocolate that comes after Valentine's Day.

i have a virtual wish list too...
in fact i showed my husband a picture of an expensive dress that he can buy me for my next birthday...in November...my theory is that if i still like it in November its worth the price!!!!

here's some videos for the Cambodian cooking if your interested, they show you how to make your own pastes so you dont need the spices....i'm sure it probably isnt authentic Cambodian, but its still good!

tourists...we are so silly, if i could tell you how many times i've hung my head in despair when i've heard people say they went all the to Loch Ness when they visited Scotland.....dont waste your money it just a bit of water!!!!!!
