when I grow up

I can't wait until I grow up because there are going to be some major changes happening around here.

When I grow up I am going to have a big girl bed (again). You know the kind I'm talking about. One where you aren't in danger of rolling off onto the floor when you turn over in your sleep. One where you can spread out at night. One with a soft cushy mattress. One like I used to have.

When I grow up I am going to have a fancy dancy camera. You know one of those that takes crisp clear photos, both near and far. One with lots of cool accessories. One that will make me want to get out and actually take some photos. One that isn't just a part of my phone.

This is funny. Instead of adding it to my wish list on Amazon I accidentally hit add it to my cart. I nearly had a heart attack. Oh I forgot, I'm too young to have a heart attack. I haven't grown up yet.

When I grow up I am going to be a ballerina. Oh wait, I already did that.

When I grow up I am going to live in a cute cottage with a white picket fence and a big front porch where I can sit and gossip about talk to the neighbors.

When I grow up I am going to be able to eat chocolate whenever I want. It won't give me heartburn, make my joints ache, or cause me to gain any weight.

When I grow up I am going to be a normal parent. Okay I tried that once and my daughters told me to knock it off because I was scaring them. So maybe that won't be happening, but I bet the rest of it will.


P.S. When I grow up I am not going to wake up where it is 5 degrees below zero.

  1. LOL - thanks for starting my day off with a laugh!

    When I grow up I want to be doing a job that I actually like. That's a scary thought seeing as I should be close to retirement but with this economy, I don't see that ever happening. Now if I could just figure out what I want to do and how to make a living off of it.... Stay warm!

  2. Cute post! When I grow up I'm going to live where it is always a wonderful 65 degrees and my home will always be clean and organized! Can you tell what kind of a day I'm having? Thanks for your visit yesterday!

  4. I'm with ya! Love that house. In my opinion, that is indeed the camera you want with the zoom lens. One of these days, I will have a wide angle lens.

    1. Thanks, Brenda. That camera is definitely at the top of my wish list. Hope you get your wide angle lens.

  5. Your current bed looks very pretty. I must be weird, I actually like a single bed. I think I'm like a baby who needs to be tucked in tight. Keep thinking about that cottage-what a beauty.

  6. I want to live in that beautiful little cottage, too, Laura. Right now. So cute! There are a lot of things I still have on my "when I grow up" list... I'm thinkin' time is getting short on some of them! Yikes! ;) blessings ~ tanna

  7. A cute post, Laura. I guess we all want something we don't have at the moment. Like a warm sunny day with no wind. Or a cape cod house with a veranda and a sunroom in a mature, safe and friendly neighbourhood. It's good to dream and also to be content. sigh...

  11. I like your wish list! I'd love to have a fancy camera like that one too. Mine is decent but not as nice as it could be! Love that house you showed. My goodness it's charming! I think everyone is yearning for some warmer weather too. If you find some, let me know. I'll follow you there!

    1. I;m thinking we might have to go to Key West to find some warm weather.

  12. Cute post Laura. I would like to live in that house. The only problem is I'm almost grown up so will probably be wishing for a nice apartment soon so I don't have to do yard work and maintenance. :0)

    1. Oh, did I forget to mention. There is free maintenance with this cottage. :)

  13. Oh I forgot to say, "I want the big girl bed or I will just take the quilt!"

  15. That is so cute. I have a big girl bed, but then I got a dog who crowds me into a tiny angled corner of it so its not all its cracked up to be. LOL

    1. I bet your dog is keeping you nice and warm, though.
