Countdown to the end . . .

. . . of my twenties. Ok, sorry to be so dramatic, but I wanted to grab your attention. This post is extremely important. I turn 30 in exactly 80 days. This may not seem like a big deal but most people my age have already had some sort of big event- be it a wedding or a baby- where they have registered for amazing gifts and received them. Well, since I have had neither - I am posting a 30th birthday wish list or register, if you will.

This way, no one can say that they didn't know what to get me. I'm telling you right now. In case you were stumped or simply didn't know you were required to get me SOMETHING. I only turn 30 once after all.

Here we go, in no particular order:

1.Money- who doesn't want money? And I figure I shouldn't stop asking for it. Who cares if it's rude or uncouth to ask for money? At least I'm not begging on the street corner. This way I can spend it on things that I really want- like laser hair removal (I am planning to be hair free by 31) or paying off my credit card (hair free AND debt free).

2.Gerbera Daisies- I love them. All sorts of colors.

3.This chair. I think it would look great in my room and I want to read a book in it.

4.Your favorite book. I love to read and if everyone I know gave me their favorite book, I would have quite an amazing collection to choose from and most likely they would be amazing books.

5.A silver locket. I am fascinated by them lately. They just seem so romantic. I like this one and especially this one. I promise to whoever got me one, I would put your picture inside- at least for a little while.

6.A super fun dance party. No explanation required.

7.Music mixes. But really unique ones. I love them.

8.A thoughtful surprise. Now this would be hard to do- a surprise is easy, but a thoughtful one would take some effort.

9.Concert tickets, plane tickets, movie tickets. Basically any ticket that I would probably have to buy myself, and would.

So, do I sound greedy? I am not saying that any of these things have to happen. I just wanted the cyber world to know, just in case. Just in case.

This could work. My sister wants to be a Salt City Roller Girl and skate in the roller derby. She posted her wish in her blog and a derby girl contacted her and offered to help.

You never know who might google your post.

Maybe you have a secret reader that is loaded and you'll receive everything on your list.

Angie, I just turned 30 - and you have to treat yourself. I chose roses, and a pair of stiletto heels. I love the registry! And, there is never a reason needed for a super fun dance party!

Turning thirty is the new "committing to a life of lonliness and friday evenings filled with Jane Austen." Happy Birthday.

You don't sound greedy... isn't it a fact that everyone is supposed to get you something for your 30th birthday? You were just informing, and I'm just reminding... you missed my 30th birthday, you can send presents anytime. :)

Ok so I found you on Lena's blog and I am happy that I did since your posts make me laugh! One day I hope to be as cool and Angie!

Where have you been? I miss your posts.

PS Don't worry once you enter your thirties you are the new kid on the block (just like Jordan Knight)
