Someday I will...

  • Be the person who gets up a half hour earlier than they need to just because. Not today because my alarm never went off, but someday
  • Start writing a novel instead of saying I need to find the time
  • Finish an entire tube of lip balm instead of throwing it out near the end
  • Grow vegetables
  • Own a house down the shore
  • Store my clothes in a walk-in closet
  • Get a mud bath treatment at the spa
  • Attempt to spend two weeks as a vegetarian
  • Eat lobster in Maine
  • Learn how to use a drill
  • Buy a king size bed
  • Make a pie crust from scratch instead of being a lazy ahole and buying one
  • See Niagara Falls from the Canadian side
  • Redo the floors in our house
  • Take an elevator to the top of City Hall 
  • Map out and complete a Philadelphia Cheesesteak Tour (please send me your Must Rate locations)
  • Stand at the bottom of the Grand Canyon
  • Exercise more without it being a fight
  • Actually pick a fruit I mean to pick when it's in season - strawberries, apples, whatever. 
  • Get MFD to agree to my idea of what to do with the shitty backyard landscaping. Any of my ideas. Just one will do.
Some of these things will obviously happen before others, I mean I work one block from City Hall and have for five years, I could be up at the top tomorrow. Maine, the Grand Canyon, and Niagara obviously require a little more planning. 

Tell me. What are some of your somedays?

  1. "Be the person who gets up a half hour earlier than they need to just because"...I wish this was me! I have seen Niagra from the Canadian side, but only b/c I grew up in Buffalo, NY as a kid ;) I like your list

  2. I too need to figure out landscaping, get a king bed, and refinish our floors. Ugh. I hate our damn floors and carpet.

    I laughed at your down the shore one...the way you wrote that is so eastern PA.

    I learned how to use a drill when we bought our house. It is fantastic and empowering. I love my drill. Also, the mud bath is kind of bizarre. We got them on our honeymoon, and it is hands down one of the strangest things I have ever done. The mud is slightly smelly and the texture and feeling is just so weird. You also get mud in places you never imagined you would have mud. Yikes.

  4. Can you maybe purchase a shore house near mine when you do? I know you're an OC girl but Lavalette ain't so bad. :)

  5. Good list! Although I dont think I have any desire to make my own pie crust ever when it's so easy to buy one pre made! :)

  6. I want to scuba dive and snorkel. I would like to get married.

  7. Nice list. Can't wait til you do the shore house!! I DID grow a vegetable this yr! Cleaning mini bell peppers, I took the seeds and random planted them in my front "flower" bed and a giant pepper plant, yielding many peppers, grew! I will have to think on this and make my own list.
    Enjoying these last few days before daylight savings time! Love the light.
    Love your MOMMA

  8. I'm with you on the owning a house down the shore.
    That pie crust thing... not so much ;-)

    I did a Cheesesteak Tour and it was awesomely delicious. I'll have to look back and see where we went (Geno's and Pat's were NOT on the list!)

    I want to someday...
    -Make matzo ball soup that tastes as good as Mom-Mom's.
    -go to Amsterdam to see the Anne Frank House
    -walk down a beautiful Italian street eating a piece of bread fresh out of the oven.
    -Go to Mt Rushmore
    -find a Cape May diamond
    -Redo our kitchen (which is silly since I don't cook, but I don't like our kitchen)

  9. I've seen Niagara Falls from the Canadian side about 15 or so times. but I've never eaten a cheesesteak in Philadelphia (or even been to Philly for that matter) and seeing the Grand Canyon would be pretty neat too!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Someday I will come to Philly and go on the cheese steak tour with you!! Great list! :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I wish I could say someday about the person who gets up half an hour earlier. I really wish I could, I am one of those who sleeps until the last possible minute and then I'm rushing around like an idiot :-P

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have always want to go to the Grand Canyon and Niagra Falls. I feel like I need to see more of the US. And good luck with the alarm clock- I'm a lost cause with that one!

    ReplyDelete
  13. A Philadelphia Cheesesteak tour sounds DELICIOUS and I totally want to do it now, too. I didn't even know it was a thing.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love how you listed the lobster one right after the vegetarian one lol! I too would love to eat lobster in Maine, get up earlier than need be and to grow veggies! Glad I found you through the link-up!

  15. On your Philly Cheesesteak tour you must stop in Chestnut Hill for a Schmitter at McNally's.

    When you get to the Niagara side, I suggest to promptly keep driving and do a vineyard tour in Niagara on the Lake. We did that this past Memorial Day weekend and it was awesome.

    One day I will make it to Macchu Picchu, its been on my travel list since 2007.

    Great post yet again!

  16. Lobsters in Maine are fabulous (actually Maine is fabulous overall) and I actually went vegetarian for the whole period of Lent back in 1996. It wasn't too hard.
    I hope to one day visit the pyramids of Egypt, Mt Rushmore and the Great Wall of China. Move back to England as a working expatriate and hopefully have Alex love the country as much as I do.
    Love the cheesesteak tour and would totally be down for doing that with you and getting up a half hour early would be awesome but impossible.

  17. but buying the pie crust is so much easier. i will also stand at the bottom of the grand canyon with you. and can i have a walk in closet. forgot about that one.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Try to be a vegetarian! I am. Its not that hard!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have seen Niagara Falls from the Canadian side one time, but when I was in elementary school. It is so incredibly beautiful from both sides, but certainly better on the Canadian side!

    One day I will visit NYC, make from scratch the pierogies that have been passed down for generations on my moms side of the family, go to Disney World, have tight abs, have a garden.

  20. I had a walk-in closet in college and I miss it so much!! A Philadelphia Cheesesteak tour sounds amazing! I'll visit and we can do that one together! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. You need to get yourself a king size bed. It saved my marriage! lol
    I get up 2 hours before I need to leave for work. The first hour is just because... and it's the best hour of my day!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great list! Oh, I so would love #1... someday!

    Just a few that are on my to do list:

    * get a tattoo (hidden Mickey);
    * sky dive;
    * take a trip in an untethered hot air balloon;
    * sit on the white sands of Bora Bora;
    * buy a big girl house with big girl furniture;
    * be a balloon guide for a Thanksgiving Day Parade;
    * travel to Germany, Italy, Austria and Amsterdam;
    * have dinner with a Disney Imagineer;
    * take a Disney cruise to Alaska;
    * see Disney Paris and Tokyo;
    * stay at the Disney Aulani;
    * stay in the Walter E. Disney Suite on the Dream;
    * observe the Lantern Festival in Taiwan;
    * become less fashionably handicapped;
    * try my hand at fencing and archery;
    * find my soul mate (then he and I can get married in WDW);
    * live on Main St. USA. ;-)

    Having reread this list for errors, I detect a certain pattern. Is there a Disney rehab? I should go there too.

  23. So many I want to do too!! Like the Grand Canyon...pick an apple from a tree...and find a way to start working out again...as soon as 35 hit...my metabolism ran away and I can't seem to find it!! :(

  24. I was a vegetarian for a month, just to try it, and it really wasn't that bad. My husband was too and he lost like 8 lbs. I lost none. Someday I will use my free time for something besides napping.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I seriously need a walk-in closet lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. What I love most about this list is that it's so easy to turn it from a wish list into a list of goals.

    My list of somedays is way too long for a comment but most of it involves traveling and writing. And karaoke.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Dawn, please let me know if there's a Disney Rehab. I could use a stint.

    Please please get married at WDW.

    Off to google the Lantern Festival in Taiwan.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Someday I will learn to NOT stress about the little things. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I was late to work today (lucky they don't give a damn). My alarm is set for 7:00, I woke up at 9. Where my alarm was, why Hawkeye didn't wake me, I have no idea.

    Mmm walk in closet. Technically mine now is a walk in but I want a giant one like the one I know you're mentally picturing.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would totally get lost in a king sized bed I think….

    ReplyDelete
  35. Someday I will come to Philly and take your Cheesesteak Tour.

    Someday I will enjoy working out.

    Someday I will get another kitten. JUST KIDDING THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

    I will never, ever wake up early.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Be careful with the King bed. Anything smaller now I have issues and want to know how people can sleep.

    Someday I will wake up and get out of bed on my own. No kid or alarm clock!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would totally love to be the person who gets up earlier... I would also love to finish a bottle of nail polish someday. Or an eyeshadow pot.

    Someday I will also...
    find my dream job
    live in a foreign country
    have a house in the country. or at the beach.
    have several dogs
    take a trip through wine country
    walk-in closet. yes.

    Someday...
