fashion/beauty friend friday

Posted Aug 19 2011 11:22am
I happened upon Modly Chic through my sweet friend Jen's (the stylish housewife) blog.  Immediately I loved.

And I really quite love her "Fashion Beauty Friend Friday" where she asks the hard hitting questions, and we put our answers on our own blogs and link up.

Today we're talking about our dreams....the ones we have deep inside and tend to think will never really happen.
I love that kind of stuff...I mean, seriously...that's the stuff my journals are made of! ha!
So read below, for my incredibly deep thoughts on dreams:

1. Fess up, if you could do anything professionally, what would it be?Oh my, this is a loaded question, if there ever was one.  Especially if you read my recent post on how BlogHer 2011 taught me that I needed a job like, ever so bad.  So. I've been thinking about this a lot.  Over my stay at home mom years, I've tried to wear many hats.... Professional Matchmaker, Event Coordinator for a Speed Dating Company, Personal Assistant, Personal Stylist....  I kid you not, I did each and every one over the last 6 years.  And I loved them all...  But here's the thing.  I love to write.  And I kind of think making YouTube videos is the cat's meow.  So, if I could combine the two AND find a way to get out of the house to be social with all you out there....THAT would be my DREAM job.  Okay. I just realized that's probably about what Paris Hilton & Kim Kardashian are famous for. But hey....if it works. Sign me up.
2. What draws you to this?Let me just say that I LOVE my kids (most of the time), and being a stay at home mom is (or will be one day from what I hear) INCREDIBLY fulfilling.  But.  Sometimes I feel like I need something a little extra in the here and now.  The beauty in writing and connecting through video, is that I am connecting! I am meeting and relating to amazing women, and it's all through and because of the things that bind us together.
Life, love, beauty and fashion.
And sometimes parenting.
3. When did you first start dreaming of this idea?I would have to say about 3 years ago when I first started this blog one hazy Ambien night. (the story on that later!) I had been staying home with my son for 3 years, and knew I was losing myself.  I needed to find me, my loves and interests again, and I needed to find women out there who were doing and interested in the same.

4. What's holding you back from going all in?Basically the opportunity of a lifetime to fall in my lap. =)
Okay, so since that's not likely to happen (or maybe it already has?!?)....I think my own fear keeps me.  Fear that I won't have anything different or interesting to say than somebody else.  Fear that I won't live up to expectations that either I or someone else has set up for me.  Basically, what if I think I'm cooler than other people do? =)  Then that just kind of creates a problem. haha
5. Sometimes the first step is the hardest....what's one step you can take now on the way to realizing your dream?Being consistent with my own writing and blogging for sure.  Setting up my own deadlines and goals, and living up to them.  And getting out there and connecting with the people who not only read my blog, but who write their own.  And mostly?  Getting over myself and my fear, and learning that there is no gain without risk!

And because my sweet amazing friend brought up the obvious, that I failed to mention....
In addition to the dreams above, I would also like, DIE to work with or for Tracy Anderson .
Her method has changed my life, my world, my view on health and fitness.
Plus, she's totally cute and adorable, and I love her taste in fitness fashion.
I would so TOTALLY go shopping with her.

{ready to workout tracy!!!}

And, if none of that works out, just put me on Broadway as Roxy Hart, and I'll be one happy girl.
You may not be, as I'm sure singing isn't my strongest suit....but we're talking about me here.
My dreams.
