Birthday Haul! ♥

Hey guys! So Sunday was  my 18th birthday.  I had a really great day spent with my family!  We went out to lunch at this little coffee house/bistro in my town (I got a mock chicken salad sandwich and some yummy veggies).  Later we had chocolate cupcakes, had pizza for dinner, and watched Mirror, Mirror.  In the morning though I got some gifts from my family and sister!  I wanted to share them with you here.  I might do a proper review on some of these items later on, so if you see any you are particularly interested in and would like for me to do a review, just leave a comment or send me an email! :)

I got two pretty rings.  One was this super cute owl ring.

The other one was this ring that has red sapphires, and a little diamond in the middle of the flower.  Both of these look really cute on.  The owl ring is really heavy actually, which I wasn't expecting.

I got three CDs for my birthday: Thank You, Happy Birthday, All Things Bright and Beautiful (which my parents actually gave me as an early gift), and The Midsummer Station.  These are SO good!  The one I have enjoyed the most was The Midsummer Station.  Everybody was saying it wasn't enough like Owl City's regular things, but I liked it a lot.

Be Delcious by Donna Karan New York smells super good.  It smells like apple and seems like a kind of spring/summer scent, but I'm totally going to wear it now.  I love the packaging!  It's shaped like an apple. :)

Look at all my pretty new shirts! :D  The shirt on the far left in the first picture I wore out to lunch.  It kind of blouses out at the bottom, which I was afraid made me look a little tubby, but I was reassured it just looked like the shirt's material.  The other two weren't actually part of my birthday but just in the batch of clothes my mom ordered.  They are super cute, but I haven't gotten a chance to wear them yet.

This shirt is another one I got for my birthday, and it's so cool!  Look at all the detail. It has beads, sequins, embroidery, and so many pretty colors.  I love it.

I love these ankle boots!  I have a small foot (these particular shoes are a size 3) so I'm always thrilled when I find shoes that fit me and don't look like a cutsie, little girl shoe.  These are really comfortable.  The sole was kind of slick, so my dad put some duct tape on it for me.  Fixed it up right away!  I can tell I'm going to be wearing these A LOT.

My sister made me this outfit for my American Girl Kit collection!  It's a corduroy jumper with a striped long-sleeved shirt underneath, and she made it to look like one of the outfits from Kit's Surprise.  I'm always blown away at her seamstress skills!

I also got these accessories for my Kit collection (school bag and supplies + a reporter's set), and Kirsten's World book because I looooooove pioneer times.  It's also part of Kirsten's collection. :D

This bag....omg drool.  It's a Fossil bag!  It's kind of a pinkish, salmon color and it's leather with rose gold harware.  This will probably be getting a better review. ;)

Earrings!  I don't have pierced ears (not really comfortable with putting holes in them as of yet) so I wear a lot of clip-ons.  These two pairs are really stylish, and don't hurt my ears.

Clips for my hair!  There's also a plain black one, but I was wearing it when I took the picture.

This necklace has charms that include a key that says 18, and an upright piano (which is kind of hard to see in the picture).

I think I got a picture of everything!  I hope you guys liked looking at it all.  :)
