Happy Birthday to ME!!!

OK, just so you guys know, my birthday was a few months back. But, not unlike our favorite Miss Sword, I, too, received a wirthday gift! I had been lusting after this particular pair of somethings for what felt like FOREVER, and my dear, sweet Mr. A somehow picked up on it. Needless to say, when I opened up my present from him on my birthday, I was elated with what was inside!!! Need me to give you a hint?


Still don’t have a guess? OK, I’ll cave!

That’s right!!!! Mr. A got us (me) the Darling Point champagne saucers by Kate Spade!

Although we won’t be having champagne at the reception, I seriously can’t wait to drink sangria out of these saucers and toast with Mr. A as “Mr. and Mrs.”! I think they’ll make for some awesome photo-ops at the reception, and I can totally foresee breaking these babies out every year on our anniversary and reliving the magic! And plus, Kate Spade stuff is just totally adorable.

And just because I’m a crazy Kate Spade internet stalker, look at this hilarious gem I found a few days ago! I feel like I should just get it for kicks and giggles:

Did anyone else out there lust after a totally unnecessary wedding-related item? (And is anyone else oddly fascinated by Kate Spade’s creepy, bleeding armadillo purse?)

    bahaha the armadillo! she has some wacky stuff…i almost bought the “emma” book purse (my real name) – http://www.katespade.com/emma-book-clutch/PXRU2420-1,default,pd.html – even though it was totally absurd. but i LOVE your glasses! that’s my fave silhouette and even though you dont have cham for the wedding, you’ll be able to use them for anniversaries and stuff too!

    Haha I actually have an armadillo purse! It’s stuffed, not real, but it was an awesome find at Goodwill last year.

    I feel like the purse is slightly odd but it’s almost like you have to have it!
