birthday wish list

My birthday is just over a month away and to say I'm a little bummed is an understatement. When 2020 started I thought I'd be ringing in 29 with a dole whip while riding Jungle Cruise in Disneyland. Obviously that won't be happening this year. Instead I'm hoping to spend the day quietly at home starting with a donut and then some reading and finishing the day with takeout from my favorite Mexican restaurant. Aside from that queso there really isn't much I want for my birthday, but my sweet husband has requested I publish a birthday wish list, so here we are.


coffee sticks - These are technically for cocktails, but I think they'd bring me extra joy in my morning coffee. I especially love the Big Tex, party flamingo, and piƱata ones.

headband - Specifically this one in rainbow stripe bright. One day we'll go back out in public and this headband would go with so much

leggings - People swear these are as good as the lululemon ones, but at a fraction of the price. I practically live in leggings so I'd be excited to try these out

kitchenwares - Anything from my kitchenwares wishlist post would be appreciated

t-shirt quilt - I have way too many shirts from college that I don't wear anymore, yet can't bare to part with. A t-shirt quilt seems like the perfect solution

gardening - Since we moved into our house a year ago I've been saying I want to do some landscaping out front, but haven't yet

kitchenware wishlist

I mentioned the other week that I've been spending more time in the kitchen lately. We have everything (and more) we need for regular cooking, but now that I'm trying to expand my skills I sometimes find myself passing up a recipe because I don't have a specific item. I've been putting together a bit of a kitchenware wishlist.


round cake pan - One thing I want to start doing is making pretty cakes, specifically layer cakes. I realized I can't really do not if I don't have two identical sized pans

bundt cake pan - As I mentioned before I really want to start making "pretty cakes" and a bundt cake is instantly pretty. I really like this one because it comes with a cover to keep the cake fresh

french onion soup mugs - A while ago Chrissy Tiegan posted an Instagram story making French Onion soup and I haven't been able to get it out of my mind since

oxo pop containers - I have a few of these, but as I'm buying more pantry ingredients I need more!

brown sugar keeper -

veggie grill basket - We love using our grill to make burgers and chicken, but I'd love to be able to make some grilled veggies too

pizza stone - I keep seeing recipes for grilled pizzas that I'm dying to try

egg ring - My husband eats a frozen breakfast sandwich almost every morning for breakfast. I'd love to be able to shape my own scrambled eggs to make some homemade sandwiches

batter dispenser - We love making waffles so this would make everything less messy

popsicle mold - Every summer I say I'm going to make my own popsicles, but then never do


What's your favorite kitchen tool I need to add to my kitchenware wishlist?
