Playing the "if" game

I'm such a copier. And thief.

But incredibly honest. (so that makes it okay, right?)

I saw this on a few other blogs and decided I'd reuse it on mine. Feel free to steal from me too. It's just a fun little fill in the blanks post.

If I could have any job in the world...I would get paid to rate and review hotels and resorts. For reals, how awesome would that be?! I LOVE traveling and would love to stay at super ritzy places, but they are out of this stay at home mama's budget.  
If I had a day to myself...I'd probably get bored. Sure, I get impatient with my kiddos and idealize that some "me" time would be pretty amazing, but truth be told, I like my days with them. Kids aside, though, I'd go shopping and I'd take my sweet time!
If I could get married all over again...I'd be a lot more insistent about premarital counseling. I truly believe it's a necessity, but I didn't push for it hard enough.
If I could live anywhere in the US...Texas or Colorado, for sure! Actually, my best friend said she'd be happy in Colorado too, so I think I'd arrange for us both to live there :) 
If my girl would have been boy they would have been named... probably something biblical. But I can't tell you! you're a potential name stealer!
If I could have any talent in the world....I would be so much more domestic. More inclined to do chores. More organized. More crafty. A better chef. Able to sew and fix things. Oh that more than one talent??

If I could go back to school and get a different would be something business related. I occasionally fantasize about having a very "Hollywood style" corporate job. Think, totally stylish, professional business suit, busy yet fulfilling work days, fancy lunches....ya know, totally unrealistic!

If I were to get pregnant again...I can't really answer that. Originally, yes, I wanted more babies. Right now, with circumstances being what they are, a baby definitely isn't what my marriage needs. With God's grace, though, I certainly hope another one or two is in my future. Babies have a very special place in my heart. 
If money was no house, support more worthwhile charities, and lots of vacations. 
If I could meet one celebrity, it would be....I don't really care. I'm totally not a celebrity-crazed person. However, Francis Chan is coming to speak in Wichita, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to go! 
If I could shop at only one store the rest of my life...Target, for sure. I just got three super cute sweater - cardigan-y things that are perfect for fall! (and Kaylee got a new blu-ray, Isabelle some adorable christmas jammies, and lots of toys and toothbrushes for the operation christmas child children we sponsor)
If we were to get another pet it would more pets! I'm not an animal person. 
If I could go on a trip right now...Colorado! The mountains. I can't get enough!
If I had to choose between a house cleaner and a personal chef...HOUSE CLEANER. I can throw some dinner together, no problemo. But cleaning? UGH. 
If I had the option of plastic surgery...ehh. I'm scared of needles....much less a GIANT SCALPEL coming at me. I think I'll pass!

If I could only engage in one would be reading! I love love love a good book. If you need one, I'd recommend these two for sure!

If I were at Starbucks right now, you'd hear me order...a venti vanilla latte with one pump pumpkin spice. 24 ounces of pure deliciousness!

If I had you over for dinner, I'd make...these amazing bacon cheddar popovers. And maybe even some unbelievably delicious pecan pie muffins. You'll leave full, fat, and happy :)
