Fall and daydreaming.....

These are two of my favorite things! Fall is kind of here in Austin, but I'm sure it will change soon, in fact I think it's supposed to be like 90 on Wednesday. I realize that I said I love Summer, and I do, but right now I love Fall more.

The older I get the more I realize how much I love change. I'm very happy and content where we are right now, but if we needed to move suddenly for some unexpected reason, I think I would be just fine with that. I realize that is not normal for only having lived here for six months, and I by no means want us to move, but I would definitely be very excited about many things that go along with moving. This is because I'm a daydreamer. I daydream about everything under the sun, plausible or not. Although I really love weddings, I think my obsession with my wedding (until I had one), was really because it was a great daydream.

So I said a couple posts/few months ago that I would have a post about my daydreams, and I know my fellow daydreamer Mandy is dying to read them, and so here they are in no particular order (soon, far away, realistic and never happening):

~Everything I would do if I won the lottery. Top of the list: paying of our debt and setting aside enough money for our kids college and parents retirement. Then I daydream about the fun stuff like buying a house on the lake, owning a boat, going on a million vacations, etc.

~Family Christmas card; I've decided I want to have one for every year of our marriage and someone has already put them up on their blog and thus I think about them way too much.

~The holidays in general; this year is Thanksgiving with the Fenter/Goudeaus and Christmas with the Crawfords. I don't really care which way it works out, I love it all the same.

~Owning a cute house and decorating it and imagining all the fun things that we will do in it.

~Vacations: going to Europe, cruising with Alison and Crystal, mountains with Daniel & Michelle, trips with both sides of our family, going to Oregon....hopefully at least one of these will actually happen this year.

~Having a baby.

~Being foster parents and/or adopting.

~Getting new furniture for the living room and our bedroom.

~Being a teacher.

~Being crafty, sewing, etc.

~Fun girl's weekend with Massie women when Rochelle comes into town in November and fun weekend with the Crawfords at the state fair in a couple weeks; these two are actually happening!

Um, I think I could go on and on, and I might regret sharing some of it, because I actually daydream about ridiculous things.

Maybe me or someone in my family will actually take pictures at my two fun weekends over the next couple months and maybe I'll actually put them on my blog! ;)

I recommend day dreaming about moving to Odessa! Hehe! The beauty of pump jacks and tumbleweeds is very under-appreciated and probably much better in a day dream!

Mandy said...

YAY! Oh I loved reading this blog because now I will spend the rest of my day daydreaming about many of these same things! AND of course, I hope the trip to Oregon comes through also. You could come enjoy our BEAUTIFUL fall scenery and weather!

I, too, hope the trip to Oregon comes through! Miss seeing you guys! :)

We are excited about the mountains, too! Hopefully, that will become more than a daydream very soon!
