My 30th Birthday Wishlist.

April 24, 2017

Happy Monday folks! I hope you had the best weekend. This weekend I was is in Omaha celebrating my brother-in-laws wedding! It was so darn fun. I'll have a full recap of the weekend on the blog later this week.

This post is 51% honest and 49% humor. So please take my sarcasm as it's intended. Recently I have been in a shopping mood. Maybe it's Instagram, maybe it's spring or maybe it's all the random shit I find online that I need right now. But whatever it is, all I want to do is shop, spend money and shop some more.

And, I'm turning 30 soon. I know I tell you that a lot, but it's a big thing over here in Kristen-land. I've been thinking about what I really want for my 30th for a while.  For those of you who are 30, whats it like on the other side? I'm actually super excited to be thirty. I loved my 20's, but I'm ready to say sayonara and hello to a new decade.

Recently, my entire family has been asking me what I want for my birthday. While I don't think I'm a hard person to shop for, I've been told otherwise. I'm learning in my life it's easier to tell people what I want instead of getting something I hate  don't love and trying to return it. I'm trying to make it easier peeps. I would hate for people to think I'm like Rachel on Friends where she returns everything. I don't return things, I just shove them into my closet and find them when I move. Brutal honesty folks.

When I think about my 30th, I want things like, world peace, sunshine, happiness, acceptance, lots of love and lots of wine. But, since my family can't wrap sunshine in a box, I figured I'd better come up with some ideas.

So, to my fam-bam and whoever else wants to buy me gifts (see the 49% humor above) here is my

  30th Birthday Wishlist

1. This Vacation Shirt from Madewell this ruffle dress and these mules. I'm so ready for a vacation somewhere, but it seems looking at vacation clothes is as close as I'm gonna get to an actual beach anytime soon. And, I am currently obsessed with mules. I legit wear mine every chance I get.

2. I really dig this boot butler. I mean, I don't have cowboy boots, but I'm sure my Frye's would love hanging around. That was a pun. When we first moved in to our house, we were so pumped with closet space. Welp, a year later, our closet is full. I think this would be a great remedy that way I don't have to fill up both guest room closets. In my defense, Adam loves clothes too. And shoes. So there, it's not just me.

3. This copper wire letter sorter. I don't really get letters, but I LOVE the copper, so I would totally put it to use. We're trying to re-do our kitchen and I want to add copper accents and I think this $10 letter holder would be perf. Now, can you guys start sending me letters? I'd love ya forever. Birthday cards are my favorite.

4. These Prada Sunglasses. My current eyeglasses are amazon and I freaking love them. I'm not lying. I love them. But when I'm thirty, I want to feel fabulous. These would totally help. They're available at Bloomies (Rahcel from Friends voice).

5. This gold stud earring holder. I swear I have earrings all over the damn place. Walk in my kitchen, you'll probably find a pair on the counter. Sometimes they hurt when I'm on the phone! Bathroom counter, dresser, nightstand, check! This would help and would help me not lose the backs. The other day Lola was throwing around something. The something is usually a stick, a piece of dog food, but nope, it was an earring back. Even more reason I need this.

6. Wine all the time. This would totally come in handy. My fridge always has a bottle (okay, more than one) in it and this would totally organize my life. Anyone? This really does need anymore explanation.

7. These Gucci Princeton Slippers. They're on $995, so I figure one of you will buy me these right? I am a size 9 and really love the black. But the ones with the snake on the front would be good too. Thanks in advance! Oh and yes, I would totally wear these out of the house. Thanks!

8. This iPhone Nub holder. I love taking selfies and snapchat videos, ect. This would be so awesome because then I wouldn't drop my phone every other time I try to take a picture.

But all joking aside, all I really want is time spent with my husband, my pups and my family and friends. Is that too much to ask? And world peace, I want that too. 

Happy Monday friends, only 4 more days until the weekend! If I can do it, so can you!

  1. Happy almost birthday!! I need that vacation top!

  2. I'm sure you've heard it from others who are also in their 30's, but seriously, it's the BEST years of your life!! Embrace it, and if not, there's always LOTS of wine to drink :) Which means you should definitely get the wine organizer for your fridge.

  3. What a fun birthday list! I hope you get them all and happy almost birthday!

  4. Happy almost birthday! I feel the same way about turning thirty, I am pretty excited. Plus I have heard that the 30's are the new 20's and so on ;) Love your birthday list! That copper letter holder is too cute and would look amazing on my counter ha ha!

  5. Love that wine holder! My fridge is annoying, too, so I'd love this to save room for the most important thing in life: booze.

  6. Those Gucci slippers are definitely on my list!

  7. Wishing you a Happy 30th! Hope you receive one of these as a gift!

  8. So funny thing about wine holders..... I wanted a wine basket for so long but then realized when I got one it was almost always empty lol with white wine I want it cold and ready to go then when it's red, it's normally opened and shouldn't be turned on the side. LOL #WineoProblems. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!


    I was so depressed when my ex left me for another woman. it made me felt like i was not relevant and my heart and love life was seriously destroyed. i could not concentrate in anything i was doing. i went online and searched for help but could not find any genuine spell caster until i went to Ocala Florida to visit my aunt to ease the depression and loneliness. when i got to Florida, i explained to my aunt who then felt pity for me and told me the secret she have not told anyone about the success in her marriage with her man. she then took me to the temple of powerful Dr. Ugo Wonders whom i met and explained my problems to. he promised to help me because of my aunt. i trusted his words and provided him with the materials needed to help me get my ex back and to my greatest surprise, after 48 hours of casting the spell, my Ex cam back on his knees begging for me to forgive him. i was shocked and surprised at the magic. we are happily married now and everything is working fine with us.I promised Dr. Ugo that i will never keep this a secret because he brought back my life and my world and that i will hare my testimony to the general public.
    My advice goes to any one out there who is emotionally depressed or having any similar relationship problem, to contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his direct email or call his temple line on +1 386-336-9876 he is the best in Florida....


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
