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?)

    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!
