Dreaming Birthday Girl

I hope you’re having a great week (even if snow refuses to leave us alone) I’m beyond excited because tomorrow is my birthday!!! Yayy!! I’m turning 26 and I feel so blessed for all the good things I have in my life: a loving husband, a wonferful family, great friends, and this blog. I’m happy that I started this journey a few months ago, I wasn’t sure if I could write a blog, and I was afraid that people wouldn’t like it, but I thought it was time to take a chance and do this for me and nobody else. I’m glad I did it, this blog has given me a voice and you seem to be enjoying my recipes and crazy thoughts, thanks for all your support!! Since it’s going to be my birthday I thought I could share with you some of the things I dream to have, who knows maybe I end up getting a couple of these!!


KitchenAid 5-Qt. Artisan Series with Pouring Shield – Pink
I’m obsessed with having one of these in PINK!! (I have a hand mixer that works pretty okay) I haven’t bought one because they’re kind of expensive and a little big for my teeny-tiny kitchen, but dreaming is free and I like to think that one day I’ll have a normal kitchen with a pink KitchenAid stand mixer on the countertop #lifegoals

kitchenaid-stand-mixer-pinkVegetable Spiral Slicer
I’ve been using my vegetable peeler to make zucchini noodles but you don’t get a perfect noodle shape with it and I’m all about making my cooking easier and quicker. This little gadget seems to be easy to use and much quicker than the peeler; whoever invented this is a genius!

I’ve never had a pair of Converse (shame on me!!) and I’ve been considering getting a pair since Christmas, they look so cool and cute!! Maybe it’s time to make this dream come true (psst honey if you’re reading this you know my shoe size, love you!!)

converse-chuck-taylorTeChef – Art Pan 12″ Wok 
I don’t have a wok and I cook chinese food every other week, how crazy is that? When I make my Easy Fried Rice I have to be extra careful not to drop everything from the pan. I found this TeChef 12″ Wok on Amazon and it has amazing reviews but if you have a recommendation, please give it to me!! I want to equip my kitchen with the best stuff!!

TeChef-WokCollarless Quilted Moto Jacket from Forever 21
A few weeks ago I tried on this jacket while I was window shopping on Forever 21 and I fell in love with it!! I thought I wasn’t cool enought to wear one of these but since the moment I tried it on I couldn’t stop thinking of it. Why didn’t I buy it if I loved it so much? Spring was here was supposed to be here and I didn’t want to buy and store it right away, but I underestimated Wisconsin’s weather and now I don’t know what to do, what do you think?


Instant Pot 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker
I’ve never had a crock pot, slow cooker or anything like it but I’ve read a lot about them and watched tons of infomercials to know that they are amazing and that I want one. So I did some research and found the Instant Pot 7-in-1 programmable pressure cooker, it’s a number #1 seller in Amazon and has great reviews. If you have a big family and not enough time to cook, you should consider getting one too!!

817Om0cdRLLLodge Cast-Iron 10″ skillet
I’ve wanted to get this for a long time, but I have no experience with cast iron and I was nervous that I would ruin my skillet the first time I use it. You must be thinking how I’ve been cooking this whole time since I don’t have some basic kitchen stuff?? It has been a struggle but I’ve managed; now I’m ready to take my cooking game to next level.

lodge-cast-iron-skylletOXO Good Grips Medium Cookie Scoop
I love making cookies but between not having a stand mixer and a cookie scoop, it has been kind of tired. I’ve been using my ice cream scoop to make my cookies but they don’t turn out the same size or shape, which affects the cooking process and I’m a perfectionist, if I can do anything to make my cookies perfect, I will!!

OXO-cookie-scoopArtisan Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat
I bake a lot!!! From desserts to meat pies, and I use LOTS of parchment paper which it’s not so cheap. This baking mat is reusable and nonstick, a baker’s dream!! (and a wallet’s dream too)

artisan-baking-matDinair Personal Basic Airbrush makeup kit
Last but not least I have this airbrush kit from Dinair. Airbrushing sprays a fine mist so the makeup blends evenly on the skin, meaning flawless and long lasting make up. I don’t like to wear makeup but lately I’ve been having breakouts and I need to cover them. Airbrushing is hygienic which is a huge help when you suffer from acne. Dinair seems to be a great brand, affordable and with good reviews.

Dinair-Basic-setThese are a few of my favorite thiiiiiings!!! –> (for The Sound of Music fans) I’ve read tons of reviews to put this list together trying to find the best brands and maybe help my friends and family choose a birthday gift for me (wink, wink). Perhaps you’ll consider some of these items for you too. Have a wonderful weekend!!
