Ridiculous Things I Want For My Birthday

My Christmas list this year as we know includes booze and oil changes, but what about my birthday list? All I want are these ridiculous things that I do not have the resources to make happen. 

Please dear God let me blow glitter from my hands, into a camera.






And while I'm at it, I'd also like to have a glitter shower



And then I want to hold these balloons while simultaneously eating a no calorie cupcake 






I would very much like a party hat to show off




I've never had a macaron in my life. I'd like one of those please. 




Free appointment here:



And a free appointment here:




I want to wear one of these headbands, I don't feel like I can ever pull these off but dear lord I want a reason to try without anyone judging me






I just want to ride around on a yellow bike with a basket...




Or pink would be ok too, just be sure it's got that basket.




And finally, all I want is to be celebrated by the blue knight at Medieval Times and be chosen as his princess and given that winning flower or whatever it is you get when you get chosen as the princess. But I'll never know that feeling because they always give it to a DAMN CHILD. I'm sick of the kids getting all the admiration and crowd love. It is my birthday dammit.




So, that is what I want for my birthday today. Seeing as I'll be at work, on my birthday, from 8am-5pm, I'm not entirely sure how this is going to happen.... Where is the Genie from Aladdin when you need him?!   TWITTER FACEBOOK Pinterest Instagram Image Map

  2. Happy Birthday!! I hope you have a wonderful day. And maybe as you are blowing glitter into the camera you can pretend to get some in your eye. Or when you are holding the balloons you can accidentally get it tangled in the party hat & headband (which I'm sure you could totally pull off AT THE SAME TIME!). Then you can pretend to be the damsel in distress that the blue knight can rescue. :D I'm sure he'd take a damsel in distress over those measly kids any day. Or better yet you could pretend to have an out of control bike. Then he HAS to ride to your rescue!

  27. please, please, please attempt the glitter. i know this might come off as rude, but i want to see if it is a struggle!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Happy Birthday! Here's to a fabulous day filled with all these wonderful things! If I could, I would dump buckets full of confetti on your head today! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. The glitter is totally doable! Either dollar store or Michael's. I kinda suggest not doing it in your own place though... The herpes of crafting is impossible to get rid of.... and on that awkward note, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. No calorie cupcake??? Didn't your mom ever teach you that calories don't count on your birthday?? Have good one =)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just got you the CostCo size glitter barrel. You're welcome.

    HAPPY BDAY DOLL.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That sounds fancy! Hope you have a very Happy Birthday!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lol the glitter pics remind me of my entire Pinterest TL! Happy BDay again! Tequila shots or no?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Happy Birthday!!!! I am literally cracking up! Pinterest just gives us such unreal expectations right??? I mean a glitter shower while all my bridesmaids are wearing glitter tops and bottoms??? It's too much! Hope you have a great time with your non calorie cupcakes! It doesn't count on your bday that's a fact!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Happy Birthday!!! The bike with the basket...swoon! Be sure and do the glitter thing outside that is a biatch to clean up!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You could TOTALLY rock that headband. Happy Birthday again!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Happy Birthday! I'm sure you could bring party hats, balloons, and toss glitter at work. No one would notice that. But if they do just say It's My Birthday and walk away, like a boss. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Happy happy birthday sweet girl! I hope that this year ahead is full of all of the above for you!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Awww! I'm sure someone can at least let you try a macaron. Oh and I've always wanted to a the princess at Medieval Times too but it's always a damn kid. always.

  46. I have never had a macaroon either.. Hope you have a great birthday with lots of glitter..

    ReplyDelete
  47. If I was closer to you, I would come and throw glitter at you for an hour straight. Sorry you aren't in New York City. But I'm still wishing you the most fabulous birthday and I'm currently searching for another giraffe picture to finish up your special day. Stay tuned.

  48. Happy birthday girlfriend!! Call me tonight to let me know where you're having your birthday shenanigans.. I will be there with glitter on deck :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. Happy, happy birthday! You shall be rewarded with all the glitter in the world today! Okay, maybe not. But, you should definitely get some glitter at some point. Also, macaroon's are over-rated. You're not missing anything.

  50. HAPPPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. Happy Birthday! I'm with you on having glitter showers and free apointments to the Dry Bar. I've never been to one and I wanna go sooooo bad. Just try the hippie headband look. Just try. Do it for me because I want to try it too.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Baby girl I'm on board with everything but that damn headband. Lol. Have a GREAT birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Totally reasonable requests. Have a great birthday - even if you are at work :) :)

  54. Happy happy birthday lady love! I feel like I should mail you some confetti or something, let me see what I can do! Go celebrate, wahoooooo! (Erin at Living In Yellow)

  55. Happy birthday! I would love to blow glitter into a camera. Those people always seem to be having so much fun. And I have never tried a macaroon either!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Happy Birthday to you! Mine is Friday (woop woop) and I would adore a party hat. Hope you had a great day!
    PS. I actually got the flower once. It was kind of awesome.

  61. Happy birthday lady! Real talk though: who is cleaning up all that damn glitter?!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Happy Birthday!!!!! Glitter looks like soooooooo much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Happy Birthday! I had no idea that i wanted to blow glitter at a camera until this post, now it is all I want to do with my life!

    ReplyDelete
  64. HA! This sounds like a very reasonable birthday list, I mean, who wouldn't want to have a glitter filled photo shoot (unless of course you have to clean it up because glitter has a way of getting into absolutely everything. But if it's your birthday wishlist then a cleaning lady comes with the photo shoot, right?)!

  65. I really love how random all of these wishes are. I hope you get ONE of them for your birthday, even if it has to be the easiest; the macaron or the sparkle blowing.. ;)

    Happy Birthday to you!! I hope being at work wasn't too bad and it was still a special kind of day for you!!

    P.S. Don't be discouraged, no one can pull off that headband look, unless they're famous.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love when people love birthdays! It's so disheartening to be around people who blow off birthdays as just another day of the week. In my book, one's birthday is the only day of the year that is ALL about you! Everyone deserves the chance to feel loved and appreciated on their birthday. So...HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Birthday to you! Allow yourself to be pampered and feel special, because today is YOUR DAY!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Happy Belated birthday!! I hate growing up and having to work on my birthday instead of sneaking off to lunch with my Dad and skipping school. Anything glitter seems like a fabulous idea for your birthday! Hope it was wonderful! (after work that is).
    and you could totally rock that headband, no judgement!

  68. First off, Happy Birthday! Second, I love this part..."And then I want to hold these balloons while simultaneously eating a no calorie cupcake ". I think you should be able to cheat just for a day, especially your birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  69. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
    I wish I could pull off headbands! They always seem to just fall or spring off my head!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Happy Birthday, Sarah! I hope you had a great day. :]
