Happy girls are the prettiest girls

Wish I was a baller

You all remember that song, right? I can't be the only one who remembers Skee-Lo and everything we wish we were....

Today I wish I were wittier. Or a better writer so you would think I was witty, and then tell all your other blog friends to stop by because I made you smile with some random post of mine. 

Today I wish I was a better swimmer. A swimmer so awesome the 40 laps (ie: 1,000 yards) I swam this morning would have been such a piece of cake I could have kept swimming. Like all the way to Alcatraz. Or something. Like Dara Torres.

Today I wish I had all day to stay cuddled up on the couch, enjoying watching Parenthood, a new to me show, and staying out of the drizzly grey weather.

Maybe if I was in Paris the gloomy weather would be more romantic
Today I wish I looked like one of the Oxygen magazine girls. Maybe not that ripped, but super lean and fit. Yeah. I've got to lose about 20lbs and spend a lot of time lifting weights if I want to get there!

What do you wish you were today? 
I know it's not healthy to fixate on what we are not, but it helps if we have something to strive  for, right?

  5. "I wish I was a little bit talla" Oh yeah.

    With the exception of Dara Torres, pretty much every single magazine photo is 'shopped these days. So they're a little unrealistic :(

    I also wish I could swim like you...i petered out at 26 laps today.
