Wishful Wednesday



'I wish' .... I got paid $1 million a year to ____!
(job or career)

My thoughts usually go all over the place with things like this. My biggest wish would be that I got paid $1 million a year to run a doggie daycare on a huge piece of land. I'd incorporate my mom & the children as well. With a big enough house and a huge piece of land, they could live there worry free.

They'd be exposed to fresh air & doggies & my mom would be in heaven getting to see and interact with lots of animals each day. Not only that, but since I would be getting so well paid, I'd rescue tons of animals too. Dogs & cats & squirrels & all sorts of other fuzzy things.

Wishful Wednesday was started by Kelsey over at The Seattle Smith's
as a way to get us through those lovely hump days.In her own words, "It may be a wish, a hope, a dream or an aspiration - some topics may be fun & playful and others more insightful - but most importantly, it will give us an opportunity to get to know our fellow bloggers a little bit better, and see what makes each of us tick..."

I also had to share a picture of our dinner from Monday night. The Strawberry Chicken salad with Goat Cheese was so good we had it again last night. I added some Granny Smith Apple pieces to it & while it may look like the chicken is piled on there, it really isn't.


What do you wish you were paid $1 million a year to do?

I would put most in the bank to collect interest, give to charity and family and buy a house!

What a great choice! We have three rescue animals and I wish we could have more.

Aww, We rescued our dog. My husband wants to rescue another one...but I am not ready for another yet!
I would send my lovely dog to your daycare though!! I would LOVE LOVE for her to have other doggies and people to play with while we are at work!
Great Wish!

I'd love to paid a million dollars to do hair for anyone and everyone. Cutting and coloring hair gets expensive, I'd love to be able to do it for 'free' for the people that can't afford it!

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

So creative! I was throwing ideas out last night and said I would be a dog walker ... and my husband was like that would get old! I love doggies too, and what a great thing to own a huge place that's safe for them to stay!

Thanks for playing and loved learning something new about you!

If I could get paid a million dollars, Molly Lou Gifts would finally be all that I want it to be with fabulous brick and mortar shops and more products. I could also have some help so that I coudl spend more time with the minis.

Thanks for doing this! It was so fun and if I had dogs, you know they would be coming your way.

PS-that salad looks amazing...what night did you want me to come over?

That salad looks pretty tasty! I wish someone would pay me to either write a book or be a wedding dress consultant. I think either could be pretty fun...:)

Love the doggie daycare idea! I wish I got paid a million dollars to run a petting zoo where schools can have field trips and I can rescue animals. I also wouldn't mind being paid to be creative and craftie!
