Momma Wants :: My Pinterest Wish List

I don't shop for myself very often. I really enjoy buying for friends and family, for our home, for holidays. My biggest weaknesses is my love for dressing CJ in handsome outfits so if I'm shopping for clothing, it's usually for him. And truth be told, I'm not a fan of shopping for clothing for myself.

From time to time, I'll come across something online that I like and I'll pin it to my MOMMA WANTS board on Pinterest. Can I tell you how smart of an idea that is? I've gotten 2 gifts from my board in the last 4 months. And with Easter, Mother's Day and my half birthday coming up (yeah, that's a thing), I thought it would be fun to put together a wish list.


Gift Idea #1
I love the movie Up. I watched it for the first time 2 Christmases ago and bawled like a baby. This Up themed necklace would be a perfect gift for me.

Gift Idea #2
I have a thing for stripes and over-sized bags and this weekend bag fits both likes of mine. Perfect for a weekend away or a typical Mom Day (you know... we carry everything, everywhere).

Gift Idea #3
If you know me at all, you know my love of football runs deep! This top would be perfect for the Fall. No matter what team I'm cheering on... Ohio State or the Cincinnati Bengals, this shirt is a must for football season.

Gift Idea #4
If you are like me and color code everything you organize then you are going TO LOVE these pens. Not only do they com in bright colors but they are erasable. Yeah, you read that right! ERASABLE!

Gift Idea #5
I've heard amazing things about Urban Decay's Naked Basics 2 eye shadow and have been itching to buy one but the cost is holding me back. I love these one because of the neutral colors, allowing for every day wear.

Do you have a wish list started that you share with your family and friends? I highly recommend making one. It makes answering the question "what do you want for (your birthday, Mother's Day, anniversary)" so much easier to answer. 

Happy Friday, friends!

  1. That bag is so cute- and those pens are just amazing! I'm the same way and rarely buy for myself. But I have some birthday money so looking over ideas! Have a great weekend

  3. I can't remember the last time I actually set out to go shopping for myself. All my money and resources go to the littles and loves in my life. The idea of a pin board for personal wants is brilliant. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to set one up for myself!

  4. Girl, we are SO much alike it's scary. I too really don't shop for myself. My purchases usually go to Chickie, Michael or our home but that football t-shirt is everything and I must have it. XOXO

  5. I shop for myself twice a year...Christmas and my birthday. And actually this past Christmas I bought a plane ticket so I'm not sure if you'd even count that! I'm the same way, though. Always shopping for the kids. Those pens...uhh-mazing!!

  6. I love that striped bag! I have the Naked 2 Basics palette and I really love it. It is pricey but it will last WAY longer than most palettes from the drugstore. It's good stuff.

  10. It is such a great idea. I have a wish list of my own too. I have gotten gifts off of mine as well. I love those pens, I will have to look into getting them. I usually only write in black but these seem fun! I also love the Naked color palettes, seeing as mine lasted for over a year in my house with two women, the money was well spent. Something to think about! That overnight stripey bag was super cute as well!

  11. Oh my holy crap when Jim and I first watched Up together we BOTH cried like babies at the beginning. I still tear up thinking about it!!

    All of that to say, that necklace is awesome.

  14. I almost never shop for myself either. I don't even remember the last time I bought myself an article of clothing. I just wear the same outfits every week, change up the day and they are new, right? lol. LOVE those pens! Momma needs.
