25th Birthday Wishlist

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

It's that time of year again.. I feel like as I get older my birthday really sneaks up on me. Especially with it being so close to Christmas, Valentine's Day, and our anniversary. Literally we have Christmas on December 25, Anniversary on December 29, Birthday February 9, Valentine's February 14. Wild. I think this has made us really not big Valentine's people, and thus far we haven't done anything huge for anniversaries. That being said, we're only two years away from 5 years and we want to make that special. :) I digress...

This Christmas we got SO many generous gifts for Sweet Baby Strader. A chair for his nursery, a nice toy box, and tons of other goodies. That being said this wishlist is all about mama. It thought it might be more interesting to y'all that way, too! :)

Le Creuset Utensil Crock in White- I think two of these would do a great job storing all of our kitchen utensils! I love the idea of two, because I saw someone use one for all of their wooden spoons, one for metal. It looked great!

Tory Burch Miller in Natural/Gold-  During the summer, I wear a pair of these sandals literally every day. What's crazy is they actually make the best travel walking shoe, I've discovered. I've had my first pair since before we got married, and since I got the patent plastic version they're still in great shape, but a lot of the stitching is fraying. I thought it might be nice to put a new pair on my wish list. :)

Plum Pretty Sugar Pajamas for the Hospital- This is kind of, technically a baby thing... but I love Plum Pretty Sugar jammies and these blue dot ones are the perfect subtle nod to Kate Middleton leaving the hospital with Prince George. Anyone? :) I think I'd order these in an xl, to make them extra roomy and comfy for after delivery when I imagine I'm not going to be rocking my body everywhere. :)

Shay Shull's new cookbooks- When your favorite blogger comes out with some cookbooks.. you want them! Haha! :)

Eliza J Gingham Shirtdress - I LOVE wearing dresses when we travel, and I've got my eye on this one for our summer trip (sharing more about this tomorrow!) It's just a perfect classic piece that I'd wear for years to come!

Kendra Scott Necklace

Drybar Boxed Set- I've used the same hairdryer since early high school.. and it wouldn't surprise me if that's some kind of electrical hazard.. yikes! Haha! Especially now that my getting ready time is going to be smaller, I'd love a nice one to get the job done faster. After my first trip to Dry Bar at the beginning of the month, I'm dying for their fun clips and terry cloth lined shower cap, too! :)

Lilly Pulitzer Dress- You can't go wrong with a quick trip to Lilly for something cute to usher in the spring :)

I was amazed at how hard it was to not add a baby outfit or a nursery detail to this list.. yikes! :) Haha!


  1. I've heard so many great things about the blow dryer! When mine dies (which I've also had since high school, eek!), I'm definitely going to go for the Dry Bar version! (One of my friends said it used to take her 45 minutes to dry her hair, and with the Buttercup it only takes ten!!!!)

  2. I love both of those dresses!!! So different but both gorgeous!!

  3. Seriously, it's all so cute!! Yes to cute pajamas post-baby (I wish I'd had brought mine to the hospital, especially with all the walking I did from my postpartum room to the NICU), and dresses! It took me a couple of months to get back into my pre-baby jeans, and had the weather been warmer, dresses definitely would have carried me into that season.

    Can't wait to see about ya'lls baby traveling plans!!


  4. Love the Lilly dress and have been seriously wanting those Miller sandals! I hope you get everything you want! :)

  5. I hope you get all the Lilly your heart desires for your birthday, you deserve it!

  6. We are in the same boat! Christmas, then June's birthday on January 7, our dativersary on January 29, Valentine's Day, then my birthday on February 28! Poor John!!

  7. I love your wish lists- they always give me great ideas for gifts for others (and myself :)).

  8. SO many cute things! I definitely want Shay Shull's cookbooks, too. And I love that gingham dress.
