When I Grow Up...

What do I want to be when I grow up... hmmmmm... a Bird Whisperer...

Gas Station Attendant... Regular or Unleaded...Traffic Cop... got my radar gun...
Professional Dancer...
Race Horse Trainer...
Giraffe Jockey...
Tour Guide at Niagara Falls...Bouncer for Private Parties...Pastry Chef...
Hmmmm... I can't decide... I guess I will have to settle for being moi... and receiving this blogger award from Six in the Country and tell you my 5 Addictions:
1. Cafe Creme... I know... everyone already knows this... but it is soooo TRUE!
2. Mascara
3. Music... I ADORE all kinds of music and it MUST be playing while I'm awake!
4. Hugging my darling!
5. Blogging!
Sooooooooo NOW... it is YOUR turn... what are your 5 Addictions... and What did or do YOU want to be when you grow up?

Maybe an actress...

Makeup is my first addiction. A garden, Fun books to read, my computer, My honey. Yes congrats on the cute award.

This reminds me of when I was a kid. I used to tell people that I was going to becoming a garage man. I clearly had no interest in this profession but I wanted to get a response out of people. Demented? Yes. Funny? Of course!

please sir said...

These sound FUN to me! My sister always wanted to be a gas station attendant when she was younger...haha!

Ana B. said...

I`m a blog addict....LOL I really love to blog!
Congrats for your prize, you deserve it!

This is a terrific post. What's funny is that I've been really questioning "what I want to be when I grow up" and I'm buying some books to really think about it. I've always been a bit lost and had too many interests.

Among my Top addictions:

1.) Travel - If I don't go anywhere far or leave the country in a year, I go absolutely insane. I've never gone a year without living somewhere or going somewhere far since I was a child.

2.) Blogging - this has turning into something that has a life of its own and I'm the slave :P

3.) Tea - I drink it like water and have many many varieties from around the world.

4.) Design and Fashion - Obsessed with both.

5.) Collecting - I'm a pack rat. One of my biggest vices are books. I recently purchased 4 bookcases from Ikea and had my other half build them all because I don't have enough room for my books and magazines. I jus can't stop!!

i want to be a giraffe jockey! sounds exotic an fancy ;) thanks for popping over to my blog my dear! haven't been over here for a while... holidays are sucking away all my time. hope you're well!!

Beverly said...

I love this post. It was just what I needed after a long day at work. I never knew I wanted to be it, but the bouncer at private parties looks like it might be interesting.

Barbara said...

Oh I so didn't know Giraffe Jockey was an option... I pick that... Although, the pastry chef is beckoning... because well... I really want to be Audrey!

Pat said...

Hi Fifi
I always dreamed of becoming a nurse, and I did become one! Secretly I wanted to be an artist or poet so maybe that will be a second career for my second half of life? :-)
Your chicken enchilada casserole a few posts down sounds yummy!
Thanks for the good wishes on the birth of my grandson -- we can't wait to see him soon!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Hugs, Pat

Great post and your paintings are of course the cherry on top! If I could dress like that for work then being any of those would work for me, if i have to pick one? I pick being Audrey too!
