I believe there is a special little compartment in our brains that is designed to store hopes and dreams. Now, I don’t mean those of the sentimental kind (because hopes and dreams in itself sounds very serious, and I think there is a separate compartment dedicated to those kinds), but rather those of the more trivial and superficial nature. Some might be able to be achieved quite easily if you put your mind to it, and others might require a bank robbery of some description because expensive.
So yesterday, the Tony awards were aired and it made me think of one of my favourite (and unfathomably cancelled) show’s ever – Smash. Which brings me to thing I want to do, numero uno.
I heart live productions so much. The glitz, the glamour, the music I wouldn’t ordinarily listen to, the talent, the costumes, the drama… I just love it all.
Unfortunately, the closest I’ve come to Broadway is Disney on Ice with my littlies (which admittedly I enjoyed thoroughly because Disney) but one day I will get there, baby! #NYWhereDreamsAreMadeOf #OrSoAliciaKeysSaid
Make homemade bread and pasta
It comes as a shock to many that given how much I love to cook (and eat) I have never made my own pasta. Ever. I don’t know why that is (actually I do and it has something to do with laziness) but I guess since there is so much fantastic fresh pasta available (or even dried) I just haven’t really bothered.
But once in a while, while dining out, I might order the ‘fresh tagliatelle’ and my heart will skip a beat and I think to myself: far out Kat you are such a lazy cow. Just get your flour on and knead that dough girlfriend.
The same applies to bread. Just the other day we went to a restaurant that served the most amazing freshly baked bread with the most amazing homemade chilli oil. #CarbsRule
Visit Sur Lounge and Villa Blanca in Lalaland
This one is for my fellow Real Housewives obsessionistas – I mean, who doesn’t want to visit the fabulous Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants if only for the cocktails and decor eye-candy (and a chance to spot LVP herself?)
I *might* even nick a wine glass/napkin ring/candle. Shhhhh. #WheresMySurMojito
Take my girls to Disneyland
Our last (and only) trip to the US of A was in 2011and my little Sienna was 20 months old. Her obsession with Tinkerbell had just begun, so of course, we went to Disneyland for
These days, Sienna is 4 and her little sister Vida, is 2. Both go crazy over anything Disney (Fairies, Princesses, Mickey and Minnie etc etc) and my favourite thing is to see them look at each other and squeal with delight at the sight of something that mutually rocks their world.
To see them hold hands while walking through Disneyland together with eyes wide open and smiles full of joy will be the most incredible moment for me. #LooksAtFlightsAndSavesPennies
Really, and actually, stick to an exercise regime longer than 8 days
I am Queen of Talking Smack when it comes to exercise. Tomorrow I will start my diet and tomorrow I will run my backside into little and perky have both been regular conversation points between my husband and I over the last 11 years. He has learnt to roll his eyes and I have learnt to mumble these words under my breath because I know it will be yet another promise to myself that I will break.
But one day, yes one day, within the next five years, I will do it. #PraysToTheExerciseGods
