The Big 2-5! B-day Wish List!


So my quarter-century birthday is just around the corner (April 23). I'm not going to lie, I'm really kind of freaking out about it. 25 is a big one! So since this is a benchmark, I thought I would share my bday wish list.  I'll start off with the items that are ridiculously expensive and totally unrealistic for any of my friends/family to buy me.


Saw this on a blog the other day and loved it! Then I saw the price tag...




I'm a pretty big reader. I have 3 hardback books on my shelf still to read but I'm thinking maybe I should join the 21st century moving forward with an e-reader. Especially since I travel quite a bit and these are easier to haul around than books!

MK bag... self explanatory..
I desperately want to get rid of that big box of all of my important papers! So I would love one of these mobile scanners so I can archive everything on my laptop and free up some closet space!


I want to get away! To a tropical destination! All I want is some sun, relaxation, and a fruity drink in my hand. (And a little umbrella, obvs.)

OK, now that we have all of the unrealistic wish list items out of the way, here are some things that actually have a chance of being purchased on my behalf...


With all the press about this book going around, I think it's time I read it. Sounds like the perfect book for modern feminists.


Piper has chewed through 4, count 'em, 4 harnesses. We now know we cannot leave it on her at anytime unless she's being walked. So number 5 is on my list!

The cats/dog have ripped holes in ALL of my nice sheets. Not happy about that. So sister could use some new sets.


Cute case for protecting my new phone when I toss it in my purse!


I already have the car (Kia Optima - which I love by the way), but it needs a good detailing on the inside. 

Hunger Games DVD! 



Great for carrying all the necessities on the go when I don't want to bring my whole purse! Fits my Droid Razr HD. I would go with the canary interior color.


So... there you have it! What I really want is just to spend time with those I love and have a great time. We are going to Nashville the weekend after my bday so it's safe to assume I'll be getting that! {And maybe Tim will write me a really sappy love letter. HAH! Keep dreamin, sister. ;)}

Fun Fact: The Meaning of my Name. I never knew the meaning of my name until I was sitting in Mrs. Timmerding's class in high school AP English. The first day she was taking role and called my name. She said, "Do you know what your name means?" I said no. She proceeded to tell me about this Hindu goddess of chaos and destruction whose followers kill people in her name. Hmmm...


Go ahead and Google Image "Kali".. It's not a pretty sight. Thanks a lot, Mom and Dad....

Well I hope you all have a fab Monday, per usual! And if you are younger than 25, I don't like you right now. Unless you buy me something from above. Then I really really like you.

Just kidding.

But seriously. I'm going to be old. Sigh.

  1. 25 isn't so bad! I turned 25 in September. You get to a point where you realise how much you've matured and all that good stuff!

    I hope you get the Kindle! An eReader is soo useful when you're traveling! If not the eReader, then all the other good stuff on your list!
