I Wish and I'm Thankful

Shirt and Shorts: Urban Outfitters; Belt: Muse Aparrel; Shoes:  Steve Madden; Purse, Hat and Bracelet: H&M; Earrings and Necklace: Francescas

I wish  I had a virtual closet like the one Cher had in the movie "Clueless."  You know, where hangers revolved and outfits were matched with the click of a button?  Think "Google" for your closet.  Why has this not been invented? 
I'm thankful that technology hasn't completely taken over our lives.  One might wonder what little brain power we have left in the 21st Century if we couldn't even dress ourselves in the mornings. 

I wish I didn't have a ginormous sweet tooth!  I mean, why can't ice cream be as essentially nutrient as something like broccoli?  And why hasn't anyone figured this out yet either?!  I mean come on America!  We put a man on the moon!
I'm thankful that we have such a wide array of food to eat; some essential to our health and some merely  for pure taste-bud pleasure.

I wish I could go on permanent vacation for like, ummm....the rest of my life.  I don't know about you but I have more of the "work to live" mentality rather than the "live to work" mentality.
I'm thankful for my job.  I'm thankful for my job.  I'm thankful for my job.

I wish this perfect 80 degree weather would never leave!  Soon it will be in the hundos and tooshys will be sweating everywhere!!
I'm thankful to be blessed enough with this weather today, no matter how long it lasts.

And I wish you a very happy day.
I'm thankful you took the time to stop by.  Big virtual hug from me to you.

P.S.!!  Next Tuesday, April 12th, I'll be hosting my first ever blog carnival thingy so put together a post of your "I Wish and I'm thankfuls" and link up here next week!!!

ooo love that you are linking this! these are amazing posts!

Clueless was the first movie I saw in a theatre and the first movie I loved. I was in kindergarten when I saw it... let's just say I didn't "get it" until I was MUCH older.

this is such a great link up idea! it's funny, but perfect to remind yourself of staying positive for the little things, too. awesome.

and i am soo guilty of the work to live mentality. i think "at least i have a job" has become my mantra.

Kelly said...

What a great post.
Not enough people sit back and really appreciate the things they have in their lives. This is such a great way to do that. I loved reading your list :)

Your outfit is wonderful. I'm always afraid of mixing patterns but I love the floral and stripes.


Lindsay said...

I WISH it was in the 80s here already!! Jealous!

Who says ice cream doesn't have any nutritional value? It IS made with milk... :)

Love this idea for a link up - I better get working on my list for next week!

Ashley said...

i wish i had your legs! haha. mine are long but not that smoking skinny!!

i have a giant sweet tooth too - real struggle! lol

happy tuesday lovely!

Anonymous said...

Copy, paste to all those wishes! I've dreamt of Cher's closet my whole life, it is actually the reason I started blogging to have a system and organize what've worn and what I haven't! Sweet tooth thingy would work for me, getting into my jeans this morning was hard, I blame that cheesecake for being so incredibly yummie! and i wish you have a lovely week!

Nanina said...

That's what I'm saying! Of course it is nice to have A/C in the car, but some things just do not happen like they did anymore... When I was little, me and my family spent some summers in Southern France. When we went to see sights and the car would park in the sun, it got unbearably hot and would need to get some fresh air before one could only think about sitting in there again. That time, we usually just spent hanging out. And sometimes, these moments turn out especially nice :-)

Relatable Style
