Birthday Haul ~2019~

Image 12-6-18 at 1.30 PM

In my last post, I inquired if y’all would enjoy a birthday haul, and the votes were unanimously in favor of that venture, and so today I’m here with that post.

DISCLAIMER: I’m not putting this up to show how much I was blessed with.  I typically enjoy these kinds of posts, and I thought you would as well.  I’m not trying to brag.

So, let’s dive into this post!

To start with, my older brother gave me a knife, which I REALLY wanted, and was very happy to receive.  Honestly, it’s a very handy tool, especially when you’re gardening or something like that.

My two really good friends bought me this book for my birthday.  As you can see, it’s already been well loved.  *coughs* I wasn’t the one that did that, though.  My siblings borrowed the book, and it came back looking like we’d had it for two years.  😐

My other really good friend got me this book, and ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  THE FEELS.  *tries to keep from sniffling* It’s SO GOOD.  I spent a whole day out of our vacation reading it.  It was one of those books that was so good that I had to put it down or else I would start crying.  Totally recommend it. 😉

The same friend also gave me these nail things, which I haven’t used yet.  They kinda confuse me, you know?  But I’ll figure out the there’s eight fingers, and how they work soon enough.

My sweet friend Allison sent me this package full of bunny stuff!  I was thrilled to see the envelopes, which have literally been in my Etsy cart since they were released, and bunny Washi tape!  Also, Snowball enjoys his little crackers greatly, though the rice puffs he doesn’t like.  I gave one to Star, and she ate it…So they might be her treats.  😂

Because I love the Washi tape so much, I had to do a close up picture of it all by itself.  It’s even cuter on an envelope.  AH!!! and the bunnies hopping on it are ADORABLE.  It’s so cute.  ❤

And then my friend Megan gave me one of her penpal kits, some hello Washi tape, and cow socks!  THE SOCK ARE SO CUTE.  I was beyond happy to see them, as well as the penpal kit.  I’ve also had one of the kits in my cart for awhile.  😂

Because Megan’s penpal kits are so amazing, I decided to spread it all out and take a picture of every included in the kit.  It’s SO worth the money, so you should check out her Etsy shop here.

And my brother also gave me this book, since I love poems and songs, and I love the Civil war.  I haven’t read it yet, but I’ll read it soon.

My little sister gave me this book, and again, I haven’t read it, so I don’t have much to say on it. 😉

I received this sketch book from one of my younger sisters, and I can’t wait to start using it!  I don’t have a sketch book at the moment, so it was wonderful to receive one.

My other sisters gave me a lot of stationary and cards to color, which I use and I enjoy doing.  Dayspring has the best cards and stuff EVER.  (In my humble opinion.)

And then my dear friend Elizabeth sent me this really neat coloring book, full of horses!  It’s very neat, and it’s color by numbers. (Wow, the title actually said that, Amie.)

And then my really sweet friend, Hannah, sent me these AWESOME gel pens, LOTS AND LOTS of tea, and then she also gave me one of Erin Paine’s album.

*rubs hands together in excitement* And this beauty is what Aria sent me for my birthday.  It’s full of makeup, which was exciting and surprising for this person here.  I’ve never ever dabbled with makeup, but for awhile I’ve wanted to, so yeah.

IT’S SO PWETTY!  I just like staring at the colors of the bottles, honestly.  I’m still figuring it out on my face, but yeah.  It’s lots of fun, and I’m so thankful for it!

And then my friend, Laura, sent me an awesome coffee cup that says, “I write, what’s your super power?” The funny story behind it is that it came straight from the company, and so I didn’t know who it was from.  It’s kinda neat to get mysterious packages, you know?  But I asked Laura, and it turned out to be from her. ❤

I did receive a few other things, but I didn’t feel like taking pictures of them.  😂 Wow, I just clicked emojis, and I didn’t have to choose which one I wanted!  The one that I always use came up first.

ANYWAY, thanks for sticking around and looking at this stuff.  And thanks to everyone that sent me birthday wishes!

  1. Anytime a birthday haul post begins with a KNIFE (and oh my word what a knife I wanna cry it looks beautiful and actually sharp and you have a great brother– A KNIFEEEEEEE) you can probably guess that the rest of the stuff is equally epic. And it was! *now has ideas for what to give my sister on her birthday*

  2. What fun! I like reading posts like this, I get so many good ideas for gifts. 🙂 Ooh yes, makeup can be really fun! It took me forever to figure out how it was supposed to work, but happily my library had a (surprisingly) large amount of books on the subject. XD

      1. My mom LOVES the nail strips so we’ve done lots of research. I recommend possibly watching a parent-approved video before applying them on your nails! We have a friend who sells them, that is why we know all of this, haha! 😉

  3. Eeep, I loved this post! Also OH DEAR I was not expecting the blush to get so messy in the shipping process. O.o But AGH I need to read The Resistance like, now…

      1. I SHALL TRY MY BEST.
        That is definitely a problem. But wait. I think you can put it on like a piece of paper, take the top off the blush container, put it in, and put the top back on. Not the TOP top, but the thing with the holes in it…?

  4. Happy birthday!!
    And I’ll take those rice puffs.. if you want.. My bunny loves them LOL.
    I’d also keep an eye on those gel pens. They might disappear. 😉
    Glad to see it looks like you had fun!

  5. Yeah! A knife! That book about songs of the civil war looks amazing! I’ll have to see if I can find it. Happy Belated Birthday, Amie!
