This is my third installment of Christine's Vanity Tuesday. To see the first two, check here and here.
Now its time for:
I'll keep with my bucket list at least for this week. But this time, its childhood dreams which have been fulfilled. While I think its important to reach for our dreams, I believe that it is most important to honor the dreams of a little girl, even if that girl is me, grown up.
1. I wanted to have a daughter of my own. *See the kid with the horse below*
2. I wanted a son. Lol, I wanted the girl first, in case I had children of all one sex (I have 2 sisters and no brothers). I was so afraid of having 3 boys!! I had my boy first so luckily this worked out, with my girl being second.
|He is a crafty one too....|
3. I wanted a horse. This dream I fulfilled almost 9 years ago, during the month of my 33rd birthday. Last week I had to say goodbye to my girl :-(
4. I wanted to live in the country. A place where you had to walk up the road to the mailbox and you had to "go into town" to get groceries. From 2002 until 2008 I did this, renting a house on a 20 acre working horse ranch as well as a trailer in the mountains, the access being a dirt road. Oh, that place had the most incredible views!!!
5. I wanted to visit another country. I have been to England, Venezuela, Canada and several Caribbean islands (yes, I was on a cruise, but still....)
6. I wanted to be a veterinarian. I didn't get there but I was a veterinary technician for several years. All the fun with none of the $$
7. I wanted to be all grown up and married. I haven't figured out the grown up part yet but I did get married. Twice! Lol, FAILURE both times.....
8. I wanted to be in <3 Love <3. I got that. For the past three years now, with my current beau, Christopher.
|Chris with out late dog, Mary.|
9. This is a more grown up wish - I wanted to own a house. That one finally came true in May 2010. Its awesome!!
|Its got the white picket fence and everything.....|
10. I wanted to cook like my grandmother. I remember when I was a kid, GG used to throw stuff together, she just magically knew how to prepare great dishes! When I asked her how she could make her dishes without following a recipe, she told me she just knew. Lol, I thought this was so cool. Yep, after years of trial and error and reading The Joy of Cooking, I can whip up awesome dishes without reading a recipe. Although, I do not promise that it will look pretty. Guess I can't have everything, right?
