My Birthday is coming up soon. Does it surprise you that since I have turned 21 (that would be 10 years ago btw) I have never celebrated? I don’t really like to be the center of attention, so a party is always out of the question. But, who says a little birthday wish list isn’t completely overdue? So, for my 31st birthday, these are the things I would ask for- if I was the asking type!

Mama’s Birthday Wishlist
You know I am a crafter, so it would only make sense to include new gear to add to my collection!
1. Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2:
I know so many other crafters who own and love their Cricut. There are so many things you can do with one it amazes me. And although they can run spendy, Amazon carries them and offers bundles on some amazing accessories. Can you imagine all the fancy things I can show you how to make with one of them? I am hoping for one but pinching pennies so that I can save up for one my self. Heres an affiliate link if you are looking for one as well! Cricut Explore Air 2 machine
2. An engraving pen.
I have been seeing these on wish.com and thinking about all of the great things I can make with one. Etched wine glasses? Engraved bracelets? Balsa wood carvings? Baby the sky is the limit.
3. Embroidery Sewing Machine
I own a Brother sewing machine and I will be forever a Brother girl. For that reason, a Brother Embroidery machine is on my birthday wish list. With an embroidery machine, I could personalize burp cloths and baby blankets, and make fancy quilting pattern with the ease that I have come to trust from Brother.
4. A Huge Bundle Of Supplies
A box of paint and chalk, glitter and paper and all the other supplies? You are speaking to my heart with all of those words. My birthday wish list would not be complete without these items.
Non-crafty items also found on my birthday wish list.
5. A new Fridge
I am stuck in the dark ages with no working ice maker and a tiny door shelf. I won’t even get into the fact that you have to be 5 to be eye level with your food. Now if I had my way, I would get something like a french door fridge, with water and ice in the door, and a nice large freezer, you know, to hold all of my make ahead meals. And since I am a Samsung girl, this one fits the bill, and then some!
If you are looking for a new fridge, I have included the following image for reference!
6. Temprapedic Mattress
Girl, I do not know when that last time I got a full good nights rest was. I have a sneaking suspicion its due to my old lumpy spring mattress. If I could, it would be the temperature controlled setup, because I sweat like a professional cage fighter when I sleep. And, if I am going all out on my birthday wish list, I would get the mattress that also reclines and raises the feet. RSL is something I do not wish on anyone!
7. Google PixilBook Laptop
Because I love design so much, it makes sense to need a laptop capable of doing the things that I need. Between scheduling for Matt and the kids and keeping up with blog work, I do worry that I would use it more than anything else on my birthday wish list. This laptop, partnered and powered by Google’s good name, should really be at the top of this list! (but I can not and will not say that a new Cricut would not delight me more than anything.)
Girly Items On My Birthday Wish List
Who says I dont like to get fancy? Ok, I say that alot. But maybe its because I just need some new threads? Here are whats on the short list in that department:
9. Boots Boot and More boots
Every girl needs a good pair of boots, and I am no exception to that rule. While low on my birthday wish list, not one to be overlooked. Because A pair of boots can bring me out of a funk and get me feeling great again. These two are my most wished for pairs.
10. Leggins for these walking sticks
If I may, leggings are pants and I won’t mind fighting anyone who tries to argue with me. I found the ultimate destination for leggings, called world of leggings. And while they are on my birthday wish list, I am hoping Matt or my dad doesn’t see this and decide that they should go pick some out for me. The wrong size would be awkward AF and I just am not ready for that.
Ok, I just told you my top ten for my birthday wish list. If you made a birthday wish list, what would that look like? Who would you give it to?
