Do you ever?

Do you ever daydream about what you want in life, things you want or what you would do if had "x"?? I find myself doing this all the time. I don't know if it's A) my way of making it a goal, B) trying to visualize it or C) just wishful thinking. I'm sure for me, it's D) a little of all the above. Lately, my daydreaming has been geared toward my dream home, gardens, how I would be self sufficient, my yearning to be an amazing cake maker/decorater and oh the things I could do with a Bosch and a Kitchenaid.

When I think about my dream house I picture something sort of "Dan in Real Life" (ish). Not his house, but his parents house. A large piece of land by the water with lots of trees, a huge wrap around porch, something with dimension and room for everyone. I would love for my dream house to be the home that is always there. The home your kids can remember growing up in, that your grandkids come to, it becomes an icon to your family. Does that even happen anymore??? I keep the dream alive in my mind and hopefully one day (before my kids are grown and out of the house) my husband and I will achieve the dream. As for the other things they are all attainable at some point in my life. If I had to pick an order in which I would like to get things (aside from the house) it would be a Bosch, then a Kitchenaid mixer, and with those 2 I could become an awesome cake maker/decorater. The garden obviously won't come until I have a house to plant one. In the meantime, I use my trusty handmixer to make bread which I then had knead for 10 minutes (awesome arm workout) and I use it to make the cakes. I just need to invest in a nice cake decorating set so that I can start teaching myself.

I LOVE my kitchenaid! They are WORTH the small fortune that they cost! Sometimes you can find them on clearance because of the color that they are! I don't know much about the bosch but I thought they did the same type of thing! I make bread and cookies all the time and there is no work involved!
You are not alone in your daydreaming! I do it constantly! The husband loves it! :) haha. not!
PS Baby Erick is adorable!! Congratulations!

I was VERY lucky to inherit my Kitchen Aid, and really don't know what I'd do without it. Like you I'm on a pretty tight budget and a cake decorating kit just isn't in my finances, but the cost of a book is. There's a book called Hello Cupcake, and while yes it's decorating cupcakes and not full sized cakes the techniques can be used on larger projects and guess what? There's no fancy tips or pastry bags! Just ziplock bags, well placed tape and snips from a trusty pair of scissors.
