Five Dream Jobs

The other day, Helene tweeted that she wished she could get paid to be a dog mama and several (several) weeks ago, I remember Kristine writing about wishing she could be a pool mama. This got me thinking about some other things I'd absolutely LOVE to get paid to do.

I know a lot of people make money from their blogs (and yes I have ads that bring in a little money) but I want to make a serious full time salary to sit around and think of random things to write about while reviewing cool products and having the occasional glass of wine.

Not in a restaurant. Been there, done that, bought all of the souvenir koozies, and I'm not going back. I'd love to be able to cook whatever I want (preferably peach tarts and blueberry cobbler) whenever I want, feed whoever I want, and eat whatever I want without getting too large and in charge. It really just makes my heart happy to cook/feed people and I'd love to be able to do that. Just that.

Pool Mom
Yep I'm stealing this idea, because who wouldn't? Even though I'm not a mom, when I become one I'll definitely be taking my kids to the pool (if we don't have one of our own) all the time in the summer. Why not just be a community pool mom, loading up your minivan with snacks, sunscreen, and get your tan on while making sure a few kids don't drown or get hurt playing chicken. Sounds like a blast to me

Furniture re-finisher
Seeing all of Jena's home projects has given me insane DIY fever (it's a thing). The problem? I don't have a house of my own (yet!) to decorate or put cool hand made projects in. I really don't know if I'm even talented enough to do the whole DIY thing but I reupholstered a set of chairs once without losing any digits so I think I could handle a few minor projects.

I don't mean a ballerina or backup dancer for Missy Elliot. I just want to be able to dance around my house to my Pandora stations while simultaneously keeping everything clean without really having to do much work. Is that too much to ask for?

The idea here is I'd love to be able to do anything fun that doesn't require a lot of effort, but still has amazing results. Some other jobs I wouldn't mind are: Shopper, Lipstick tryer-onner, Professional car singer or Karaoke-er, cheese eater (without the problems later), sunscreen tester (aka just let me tan all day), and cat mama.
What are some of your dream jobs?

My dream job? An actor that no one knows but somehow makes a ton of money.

I'd actually be okay with being a flight attendant if their salaries weren't terrible.

The dancer sounds pretty awesome too!

I really want to own a puppy day care / clothing boutique. Adam wants to make sure that it serves gourmet coffee as well -- Pups, Cups, & Style! I'm digging it!

I would also like to be able to cook peach tarts and blueberry cobbler all day every day. We should start a food truck and just sell baked goods. We should call it 'Diabetes'.
