When I Grow Up

Technically, I'm adult.  I mean, let's be real - I'm over 30.  In fact, yesterday I was filling out a survey for some random thing or another and when it got to the age section, I had to check the 31-40 box.  Long gone are the days of the 21-30 box.

But there are still 10 million things, give or take a few, that I still want to have or do when I grow up.  So I'm linking up with Whitney and telling the world about it.  Or at least a few hundred people in the world.  Close enough.

Here's what life will look like when I grow up.  One thing I know for sure, I'll have a kitchen that's actually pulled together and photo-worthy.

We won't have chipped plates or mismatched flatware when I grow up.  No sir-ree bob.  When I grow up, I'll have dishes so lovely they could be props in a food magazine.

And some of the food I'd serve on those dishes would come from my home garden, because real grown ups have green thumbs.  The eggs will come from the chicken coop in my backyard naturally.  (Yes, one of my grown-up fantasies is housing chickens in my backyard. . . .)

Of course, I wouldn't spend all my time in the kitchen.  When I grow up, I'm going to be a world traveler.  Places like Paris, Santorini, Spain, and Portugal would be just an average "weekend away" destination.

When I need to rest up from my adventurous ways, I'll have a grown up bedroom with a real headboard and coordinated linens!  Yippee!

Oops, that was my vacation home bedroom.  Silly me.  Here's what my real, boring, everyday bedroom will look like when I grow up.

When I grow up, I'll also have a plastic surgeon personal trainer to help achieve that hot bod look I've always dreamed of but am never motivated enough to get on my own.  Then I can wear outfits like these on the daily, as opposed to my current wardrobe of yoga pants and t-shirts/sweaters.

Oh, and let's not forget, when I grow up, I'll have a few hipster children.  Because, let's be honest here, the best thing about hipster culture is the children's fashion.

  1. Oh, I'd still have the mismatched crockery and rather bohemian kitchen, though I wouldn't mind suddenly acquiring a green thumb. Not having one surely means I'm not grown up yet either? ;-) Lovely post, made me smile xo

  5. Your grown up dreams look a lot like mine except for I may pass on the whole children thing. Unless children go from 3 to 30. Does that happen? Does anyone know if you can skip the whole teenage thing? Cuz that would be helpful

  7. Oh ya, I`d love a kitchen that looked like that, and even better if it was constantly stocked with fresh and healthy foods (and ice cream...) without me ever having to run to the store ;)

  9. I adore this post. I feel the same way. Haha. Instead I think I'll probably never really grow up...but there is always something to aspire to. But the hipster kid...you have to do that for sure! Ha.

  10. I would definitely have the weekend getaways to various European locations. That would be lovely. I would have my Audi and Bichon Frise puppies to keep me company, of course.

    My bedroom and kitchen are the two areas that I never get around to decorating...that needs to change when I'm an adult too :)
