Dream Job

So I know we are all living our dream already, especially those of your who are SAH Moms. There is, of course, no better job on the planet than that of nose-wiping, bottom-wiping, tear-wiping, sandwich-making, band-aid applying, time-out giving, rule-enforcing, back-to-your -bed-marching , loving and tending to our dear children.

However, just for fun, I ponder what my ultimate dream job would be (in another life of course).  Maybe it's that we just moved and I'm getting all nest-y and decorator-y, but do cool design things just jump out and pull you in?  I can get lost in an issue of O at Home, an episode of Trading Spaces, or Design on a Dime.  I'd spend endless hours in a funky antique shop, or design studio, or home decor store just pondering the possibilities if I had the time.

I love...

Cool things like this

And this

And this

And this.

I love the feeling I get when I see people of great need get help, and somehow help with a house is the sweetest gift for a family in need.  So, I've decided that in my next life (when I'm not already living my dream as a mother and teacher) I'll be a designer for this show:

Add it all up and despite my regular-looking home with regular-looking stuff, somewhere in me there's a person who would kick a** at this.  

So Friend, I ask you, what is your dream job?

if you were a designer, i would hire you in a heart beat as i just can't seem to get motivated to decorate here!

as for my dream job.... i really would love to be a successful photographer. :)

Amen Amy. I think photographer is tied with Extreme Makeover for me.

Trading Spaces, or Design on a Dime? Honey have you seen Divine Design? Now that lady rocks... as much as you would if you became a designer.

You in fact would rock and do rock at everything single thing you do. Always have!

My dream job would be something artsy, like a poet or a photographer or a novelist or a poetic novelist who takes her own photos for her books. Oh and I'd like to be wickedly funny too.

Golly if I haven't been trying to figure that out lately.

If your decor is anything like Yo Mama's, you could totally rock that world. I could see you and Nate Berkus groovin' on each other in the workplace.

I agree being a SAHM rocks though LOL at the strikeouts - too true.

Loved to see all the gorgeous eye candy you enjoy. My dream job? Writing museum guides for children or teaching art history at a university. I'm such a nerd.

Kathryn said...

Okay... my dream job would be being a SHM three days a week (five, including the weekend) and two days a week as an elementary school counselor. That way I would still get some adult time with co-workers, still get some money, but spend more time with my little man Diego. : )
