Turning 30: Wish List

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

With April quickly approaching, I figured it's only appropriate to get a wish list out there. April = BIRTHMONTH. Let the planning and celebrating begin. PLUS it's the big 3-0... I'm thinking lots of flowers, balloons, and fireworks, peanut butter rice krispie treats and gluten-free donuts..

I've been trying to keep track of a few 'wish list' items on my pinterest board here, and I always have a running note on my iphone so I'm ready at a moments notice to share. :) Never want to forget a great idea..!!
Medium/small salad plates: I've been using this particular size of plate a lot lately and it wouldn't hurt to have another set in the cupboard. Must be microwave and dishwasher-safe. Simple is fine.
Textured or colorful hand towels for powder bath: The Threshold collection from Target has some pretty good options. Also, textured paisley and green global medallion caught my eye for something a little different.
Fauxidermy: Because our parlor needs this deer head or ram. Or I'd take antlers..

Natural glow daily moisturizer: As close to tanning or sunbathing as I'll get being on the go.

Graphic tee: These J.CREW tees are adorable.. But $30-$40 for a t-shirt..? I'm not usually into that. Ily Couture has some good choices that I'd say fit me pretty well - Wifey tee/tank, Cliché = perfect. Old Navy usually has a few options, sans store name.. Botanical, Parisian, Nautical

Crossbody bag: Wide strap that will be comfortable to wear with a few pockets to help get by with the smaller capacity. Relic from Kohls - Cognac, Splurges from Dillards - Fossil color Saddle, or Mint

Boat shoes: I can see myself living in these this spring/summer, they'd go great with a cute graphic tee (see above).. And on sale - Old Navy Metallic-finish - Gold

Lip gloss and candles: Because you can never have too many, and it's a bummer when they run out.

Laptop: Pretty pretty please..?!?!  Apple MacBook Pro

Not pictured (but equally as important):
Name bar necklace: I've really been into the personalized jewelry lately + dainty necklaces. Love the idea of using coordinates (like where the Mr. and I met, or got married, or where the Little was born, etc..) or simply initials. Plain gold plate, personalized gold plate, or custom hand-stamped jewelry from R&E Avenue.

Kitchen gadgets: High-heat, silicone whisk, 'cookie' scoops

Phone case: How fun are these by Jen Ramos/MadeByGirl?!

Vacation: I'm thinking somewhere warm and beachy that's very relaxing and people bring you things when you need it and all meals are prepared for you..

Am I missing anything..? Any tips on making collages for a blog post?


  1. Oh my gosh! I'm turning the big 3-0 this year as well, but not until September so I will have to keep an eye on what you do/get for some ideas! Loving the phone case, the MacBook Pro (love mine!! highly recommend) and the cross body bag!

    1. Awesome - big year!! The past few years we've done bigger celebrations with lots of friends, etc. This year was the Mr.'s 30th also and things seem to be a little bit more low key.. I suppose that's mostly my fault!! Plus it's around Easter so I'm ok with lots of family time!! I just tend to over-celebrate myself.. All month long. :)
