Thursday Thirteen

After being inspired by The Great American Dream last night with my future husband Donny I decided to list my top thirteen dreams in no particular order. Scroll down to yesterday to see a gorgeous pic of my hubba hubba!

1. I would love to have an RV just big enough for me, my hubs and Wensley. I would love to be able to just take off anytime we wanted and travel the world!
2. I know it will never happen, but boy would I enjoy it if my house would stay spic and span for more than a day! Why does that never happen around here?
3. I would, of course, love to have my own giraffe farm! I would have others do the yucky work. I would teach them a trick or two like giving high fives or pretending to be dead. Also, it would be me and only me that they loved the mostest!
4. Since I have to be in a wheelchair (for now) I would love to have a blue scooter with really cool pin striping that was all decked out with a cup holder and a built in laptop table (for blogging y'all!) and a mirror so I could see how cute I look at all times, and some nice comfy pillows so when I lean back to look at my Donny poster on the canapy (so I don't get burnt y'all!) and probably a cash register to hold all the money that people with give me because they feel sorry for me...not because I'm in a wheelchair, but because they think I have no life!!
5. A 1967 black loaded out Mustang with a speedometer that reads 140! Fastback or convertible...I'm not picky!
6. World peace-it's not all about me!
7. Now back to me~where was I? I won't wish for zillions of dollars, but it would be nice if I didn't always have to think, "Is there enough money in the checkbook this week for me to buy this?". Know what I mean?
8. Wouldn't it be just the coolest if we could have a blogging convention? How neat it would be to meet in some really cool place (Hawaii, Swtizerland, or even a spa) where we would all finally meet one another! We would have plenty of time to talk and we wouldn't be rushed and thinking we need to move on to the next friend so we can get to know everyone. Who would like to be our guest speaker? Anyone?
9. I'm a fairly simple kinda gal so my next dream would be that I would love to go shopping and find THE outift! I would have my hair done and it would look perfect (no gray hair). My hubs would send a limo for me and when the chauffer opened the door inside sat.....my husband (who did ya think I was going to say?). He is dressed to the nines! We head off to the symphony to enjoy an evening of beautiful classical music. After, we go on a carriage ride around Indianapolis. The stars are bright and it's cool enough that we need a blanket to snuggle under. Then we head to a fancy restaurant where they don't have a dollar menu! The hostest is professional. The waiter is charming. The food - perfection! My husband - can't take his eyes of me. Me - well, I'm in heaven at this point. Sigh!
10. I wish that Cold Stone Creamery carried watermelon sorbet all year long!
11. I would love it if someone would invent a self cleaning toilet so none of us would ever have to do that chore again! Or if you are someone that loves it - would you come do ours?
12. How do I wish that I could go back and capture my life on film. Yes, even the bad times. I would love to see my husband and I meeting for the first time or what did my face look like the moment I heard about my kids. I would love to have more video of my father and my grandparents telling their facinating stories of the depression and other times. I would love to see me as a little girl and being able to run and jump and do cartwheels all the way down the driveway. I would love to watch myself at my first Donny & Marie concert. Or how about my first kiss? I wish I had it on film the first time my kids called me Mommy. I know I was beaming with pride! Oh, there are so many things I can think of right now that I would love to see again. How about you? Would you want to see your life on film?
13. I wish that I could make all your dreams come true!

Good idea!

Seems #6 in a lot of 13s is making me laugh today!

#9 would be amazing! One Valentine's Day my hubby surprised me with a dinner at St Elmo's Steak House, but it was raining so I never got a carriage ride.

Now I live 8 hrs from Indy (instead of 1 hr) and I miss it dreadfully. Please enjoy your next visit downtown for me!

great 13..feel free to swing by mine: http://mrshand.livejournal.com

Hello, fellow giraffe lover! Twiga is Swahili for giraffe - my favorite African animal. Nice dreams - I'd love if self-cleaning homes and toilets were available. I hate cleaning! LOL!

Your list is great! I wish I could make them come true :)

My parents are actually doing the "leave it all behind and hit the road in an RV" thing right now. They're gone for a full year, and I am SO jealous...

Happy TT, and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Wonderful list! #9 sounds dreamy!
#12- Just imagine how long it would take to watch your whole life on film! I think your memories are wonderful. I have many memories that are not on film but I can see them in my mind.
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
Thank you for your visit.
Have a wonderful day!
Happy TT'ing!

You are such a sweety!

I'd dream about owning a Mustang, I'm not picky either.
And YAY for a blogging convention I'd choose Hawaii, sounds like we'd all have a blast!

Hope you had a great Thursday! :)
