I Wish and I'm Thankful

Shirt and Shorts: Urban Outfitters; Shoes: Sam Edelman; Purse: Francescas; Hat: BCBG; Sunglasses: RayBan
"I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a rabbit in a hat..." Remember that one hit wonder by Skeelo back in the 90's?!
I'm thankful I do because that song is AWESOME!!!

I wish I could sing like Carrie Underwood or Kelly Clarkson. Or - maybe I am getting ahead of myself here. I really wish I could just sing. Decently. I've wished for that my entire life. I mean who wouldn't want to be a rockstar!? Minus all the drugs, sex and weird mind control stuff.
I'm thankful for lip-synching, "microphone" hair brushes, and knowing how to perform a really mean air guitar.

I wish popular music today was more substantial. I mean how many songs can people sing about 'making love in the club' and getting 'crunk'?
I'm thankful for K Love.

I wish I could play the piano really well.
I'm thankful for the lessons I took when I was younger and the ability to know how to read music, even if it is at a snail's pace.

And honestly, I'm just thankful for my Hubby running his fingers through my hair as I write this post.

Happy day!!

Haha I LOVE that song!
Personally, I wish that I hadn't thrown the 15 years of piano lessons I took away. I haven't touched a piano since I was about 18 and my skills have gone waaaaaaay down.

Rissy said...

yay! totally one of my favorite weekly posts!

I too wish I could sing like Miss Carrie, but someone told me I looked like her a couple days ago. That will totally do for now!

I am shocked at how much high schoolers post on Facebook, and I'm only 23. Technology is very quickly takin over lol
I sound like a paranoid senior citizen

Rach said...

Love your list :)

I took piano for years when I was a kid and then quit when I got to high school. Now I can't even play twinkle twinkle and wish I hadn't given up on it!

As far as singing goes, I belt out tunes during my commute to work every morning and I'm convinced that I'm almost a pro ;)

I really love the idea of this link-up! It's such a great outlook. I get a little bogged down with all my wishes sometimes, instead of thinking about all that I'm thankful for.

I adore this outfit! I would definitely wear something like this and probably have worn something quite similar. I love anything navajo esque.

I took piano as a kid, didn't practice enough, now I kick myself. Especially since my husband plays the piano amazingly well. And we took lessons for the same amount of time. Pathetic.

I live in the valley, but I've never listened to klove. I'll have to try it out...

I really love your native indian inspired bird shirt. Very good idea with the "I wish and I'm thankful." I agree with most but especially about song referring to the club and/or getting crank. I mean really now kids give up already.
p.s. you look adorable in fedoras.
Cheers,
Bre

Anna said...

I agree, it's important to get off the "I want more" train...

Like your shirt.
Love your 'wish' list and 'thankful' list.
Totally agree with you on wishing songs could be more substantial. There ARE other things to sing about!
