The Adventure Starts Here: Birthday Wish List

Birthday Wish List

I will be turning 31 in less than 2 weeks.  Turning 30 was kind of exciting to me.  I guess I like milestone birthdays.  But 31 seems like an odd age.  I am now officially "in my 30s" instead of just "being 30".  I honestly have no problem with my age though, I feel like I'm doing what I should be at this age and I'm very happy with my life.  While I don't NEED anything, I had to laugh when I started coming up with a list of things that I would want.  Even though it's usually cold (and sometimes snowing) on my birthday, all the spring stuff is out.  I enjoy getting spring clothes and accessories and  this year is no different... check out the pastel colors shown below!  It seems that my wants recently always include some clothes, some cute accessories, and things for the home, and this wishlist is no different ;)

vase | tablecloth (the largest size) | outdoor caddy

First, all the things I'd love for our home.  I love updating our mantel and I think this yellow vase would add a great pop of color to our living room.  While I have a few regular size tablecloths, our table can extend super long to fit 12-14 people.  Right now I only have a light yellow table cloth that will fit so I'd like to add a white one to my collection so that it will go with more.  Finally, I'm starting to get excited for the summer when we will live on our deck and eat all our meals out there.  While I love the look of galvanized steel, Chris pointed out that it could really hurt Noah if he dropped it on his feet.  I found this wooden version and love it!

As for things for me, I would love some new shirts.  Since I'm a stay at home mom, all I really need are t-shirts, and currently I'm loving flowier styles.  My favorite color has always been purple, and while I usually stick with a black wallet, I think this would be really fun to whip out of my purse!  And finally, while I don't wear jewelry on a daily basis, on the occasion that I do dress up, I really like the look of these bracelets.  A friend of mine in my old MOMS Club started this jewelry company and sells them on Etsy and in a local boutique!  

Anything on your current wish list that I should check out?


  1. I always ask for clothes for my bday too since I don't spend a lot of money on myself. I turned 31 in Oct and Kev will be 34 in April..we definitely feel weird about being in our legit 30s now. We both remember our parents at these ages and know Cullen will remember us right now too and that is so strange!

  2. I love your wish list! That wallet is super adorable! My husband's birthday is in a couple weeks too... I should start asking him what is on his wish list!

  3. Perfect wish list!! I turned 31 over the summer, I'm with you, not quite as exciting but I like where I'm at!! :) Happy early birthday!!

  4. LOVE your wish list! I love those yellow vases, I'm loving pops of yellow right now, I'm currently trying to finish Scarlett's room and I'm so drawn to yellow accents! :)

    Also LOVE that kate spade wallet! I want it now too...

  5. I have that Kate Spade wallet (but in black) and it is the perfect size! Sometimes I throw it in my purse or diaper bag, other times I just bring my wallet.

  6. Love the boatneck tee! Now that I'm in my 30s, I just assume that I turn 30 each year...

  7. Great list. I can never think of anything to add to my lists!! Those vases are gorgeous! I think yellow would fit nicely in our house of mostly grey and blue!
