~♥~ I WISH WEDNESDAY ~♥~


Surprise! It's Wednesday already. Yikes how did that happen? But here we are with another episode of "I WISH Wednesdays". I know "YIPPEE" right....hey try to pretend you're enthusiastic...otherwise my feelings will get hurt.

And besides I've got some pretty terrific wishes this week...starting now



I wish...... everyone in blogland had read this post by Dana over at "The Stone Rabbit". I know you're busy...but it will only take a second or two...and it's worth the time believe me so just click Here Of course all of Dana's posts are worth a read...you're gonna her.




I REALLY wish........... I had a new truck....that smelled like...a new truck. Instead of pine scented doggy poo. (see previous post if you have any questions)


I wish...........that Brian Dennehy would scoop Susie Q up into his arms and smooch her until her legs melted. If you go visit Susie's you'll see she's just a WEE bit...umm...shall we say CRAZYFREAKINGOBSESSED with him. But you'll love her blog even if she's a woman on the edge!




I wish.......... my crazy friend over at Pedaling Fast would have given ME those Jazz tickets instead of trading them for a Christmas tree!!! Yeah sure it was a big pretty tree....but C'MON they were 4th row seats!!! And I NEED....NEEEEEEED to see my Jazz play live-in-person-up-close-enough-to-see-em-sweat!!!




I wish.......... I could create magic with a paint brush like the marvelously talented Fifi Flowers. I did however win her contest WOOT WOOT ! Go see her work...it's to die for. But don't die...and come back here when you're done....we ain't finished yet!




I wish...........my fabulous daughter Lacey would put on some more clothes next time she gets her picture taken. Honey I love you...but mix in a turtle neck now and then! And stop doing that "pouty mouth" thing...it makes your mommy FREAK OUT!





I wish............ That everyone could have the enthusiasm and excitement that Kyley has. Just visit her blog "Crazy Kyley" and you'll feel the love she has for simply being alive. She makes me smile and laugh and I love her!





I wish......... That I could get me a new hair-do...and that I would look half as good as Donna over at Donna's Den does with her new do!!!......hmmmm "Donna does a new do" sounds like a questionable movie title ....and rightly so because she looks SMOKIN HOT!




I wish..........That I was a classy "set the table all fancy" lady like all you people who do Table Scape Tuesday....and if I was ....I'd want to have Bo's dishes! You know...Bo from "Blinks n Winks" ... I love this quilted set....it even makes my heart pitty pat and I don't even USE dishes...we eat outta the microwave container the food came in.



I wish.......... That I could spend one evening having dinner with Beth's family. Beth hangs out at "Aunties with Advice" Her family is so close and they have so much fun together. You can just feel the loyalty and love every time you visit her blog. I bet it would be one of the best meals I'd ever have the pleasure to eat.

And speaking of eating.......

I wish..........That God would have put me in charge of this whole "calorie" thing. Not that I want to second guess the big guy upstairs.....but I think on this one issue I could have "improved" upon the concept. In my version....This little nugget would have ZERO calories...ZERO fat....and you would actually LOSE weight by eating it!


Thanks for playing along with I wish Wednesdays....I'd love to hear what you wish......so leave a little comment..... and I hope it's true what they say...that wishes do come true!

I can't believe I am first to leave you a comment! Nikki you made my heart melt with your sweet comments.
I WISH I HAD THE JAZZ TICKETS SO YOU COULD COME HOME AND WATCH YOUR JAZZ PLAY IN PERSON AND YOU WOULD BE INVITED TO DINNER IN A HEART BEAT!
Not that the food would be yummy (I warmed up a Healthy Choice dinner tonight lol) but the laughs would be wonderful. Are you coming to town?
You are so darn sweet. I WISH you and your family the very best Christmas ever... and that brand new-doggie poo smelling truck!

Beth~♥

Donna Marie said...

Nikki!!! (LOL) I was scrolling down your wish list, giggling to myself... and there I was. (LMAO) Sheesh... That new do is driving me crazy! I need a trim already! Thank you so much for the sweet compliments! (((((HUGS))))))

Sorry to hear that your truck still smells like doggie diaper gravy! (I laughed so hard when I read that post!) I know it's not funny but the look on Krumpets face with that sign around his neck was too funny! (LOL)

xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Donna Marie

tam said...

Hello Nikki! My wed. wish would be that I could finish my big project for craps sake already!!!
Loved your post-hope the rest of your week is awesome and ...doggie poo smell free!
~Tam :D

Quirkyloon said...

Oh, Sister I am so with you on that little nugget should have ZERO calories!

Although I have it on good authority (ahem) that if you eat a little nugget like that and drink a diet pop, they cancel each other out.

Nice thought, huh? I mean, nice wish, huh?

hee hee

Another hilarious post Nikki! You are so funny woman!

Lilly's Life said...

Yes I also wish you were in charge of calories too. What great wishes and great links. They say you have to tell the universe wha tyou want in life so it looks like you will have lots of good karma coming your way! And with you in charge I will be a whole lot slimmer...

Linda/ "Mom..." said...

Nikki, it's been a while (my new computer's "out", & I'm using a "loaner" 1/2 the time!), but I have missed your WONDERFUL writing n' FAB sense of humor, so came by to say "Hey!" n' see "Wassup"!? I see you haven't lost your delft writing touch, Sweetie... THANK HEAVENS!!! This was such a FUN blog to read, gf! MANNNY thanks for the late-nite smiles!! Warmest hugs, Linda

beth at aunties said...

Oops! That was suppose to read I wish you the Brand new NON-doggie poo smelling truck. I hit the 'insert key' and things started to disappear on me. LOL I really wouldn't you to own two trucks with doggie diaper gravy as Donna Marie called it;)
And I too wished you were in charge of the calorie deal and we all would be alot happier!

Kritta22 said...

Ewww!! doggie diaper gravy! That just explains it all!

tara @ kidz said...

You were right. I do heart Dana. That post was hysterical! And can I get a 'woot woot' for the new Jazz player? What a hottie.

Braja said...

Hey Nikki my little crumpet...thanks for the links, I'm headin' on over there. Can we have a playdate?

Braja said...

Oh poo I am not having luck with comments today. I sent you three and they're not working. I give up. Know that I'm here and sending you comment love, Nikki my little crumpet....

Yaya said...

'Donna does a new do'....hahahaha!

mbkatc230 said...

I wish that I was done with Christmas decorating already. I also wish that you were in charge of calories, that pic let me know that you're dietary priorities are in place! Thanks for another fun post K

KC Mom said...

Okay...love your wishes and will check them out more in depth later...I may even attempt to make some wishes myself. Off to teach seminary but got me some Nikki before I did!

Darlene said...

You had me giggling away with this post.....the last one especially. I would be rail thin if you lost weight from eating that!!!!!!

Kristen said...

I'm definately wishing you were in charge of the calorie thing...I think I gained weight just looking at that brownie sunday

Chris said...

I just love reading your Wednesday Wish, if I can ever get my brain to function again, I'm going to join you. maybe after this week.

Love Ya,
Chris

Dayna said...

That was absolutely hilarious!! I needed this 'Wish Wednesday' start mine!! THANK YOU!! I am just so happy to have met you 'cyberly' LOL! Okay, I hope you allow me to STEAL your WISH day cuz I would like to do this too!! HUGS HUGS!!!

Justine said...

I had to giggle at the picture of Lacey. She looks totally smokin' hot and beautiful, but I can imagine as a mom cringing every time a new magazine with her in it comes out. Slowly opening the pages until you get to her... will she be nekkid? Puckered up like a ho? Heeheeheeeeeeeeee

Justine :o )

squawmama said...

Nikki how great was this... It made just sit here and smile... That is a good thing everyone needs to smile first thing in the morning... I like the calories thingy and of course I agree totally with the wish about Bo & Donna... That was a fun read... Sorry your truck is still stinky... reminds me of the Seinfeld with the car smelling like body odor... LOL LOL

Have a great day... Love Ya.
(((HUGS)))
Donna

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Uh-Oh. My son wants your daughter.

Poor poopie truck. That really is gross.

Love your wishes. And if you figure out the calorie thing, you let me know!

French Fancy said...

Hello Lacey's mum (yes, us Brits *do* say mum). I wish I didn't have a really bad cough and cold. Hope you are feeling bright and breezy and not too affected from your smelly old car

Pedaling said...

you funny girl.
i now know who to give the next set of jazz tickets to when a game comes up that we are unable to attend.

JyLnC said...

Fifi's artwork is very cool!

I wish you were in charge of calories, too. It looks like you would be very lenient with the calorie distribution.

I love the quilted china and feel your pain about the truck aroma.

Jessica said...

OMG~ I made the mistake of reading your 'wanna buy a dog post, first and I'm dieing. I literally laughed until my guts hurt~ ( when his butt exploded-rofl ). My dog is so fat that when she coughs ( or hacks), we joke that she's going to explode ) Anywhoo~ that was truly funny. I'm enjoying your My Wish Wednesdays, too. Have a great day!

Hugs~ J

Bo said...

Hiya Nikki...I was reading along, laughing, and what to my eyes should appear but the sweetest words about moi...Oh, you are so kind! Love that about you...and because of it here's my wish list:

I wish I had met you sooner
I wish I was as creative as you
I wish I was as witty as you
I wish I lived across the street from you or down the road at least
I wish my dogs could "talk" like yours
I wish I had your beautiful daughter's body...WOW! (& face)
And I wish I had Donna Marie's hairdo too!

Have yourself a splendid day! ♥ Bo

Mariafer said...

Great wishes!!
I saw you won the giveaway @ Fifi's, Congratulations my friend you deserve it!!
Lots of hugs
XX
Maria

Jenners said...

Oh how I wish you were in charge of the calorie thing! I wish, I wish, I wish...of all the cool stuff you wished for, this is what I fixated on! Great great post!!

jill jill bo bill said...

Okay, Bo stole my wish, which really shouldn't count because she had multiples(heh) but I wish we were next door neighbors. As long as you rolled up your your truck windows and lived downwind, it would be perfect. PERFECT!!!!

Smilingsal said...

That does it! I'm voting for YOU to be in charge of the calorie thing! Just think, celery: 300 calories, piece of cake: 2 calories. I love it!

Rachael said...

I am so with you on the calorie thing. I made some terrible discovieries this week in regards to the calorie count in some of my favorite foods! Why can't my favorite foods be celery and ice cubes?

Jan said...

That is a whole lot of fantastic Nikki. Those teeth are crazy.

Your daughter is beautiful and that hair do is so cute. Wonderful friends you have.

Amy said...

I wish that brownie ice cream thingy would jump onto my desk and be real. I could use a sugar rush :D

ann said...

THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING ME TO SOME BLOGS I DIDN'T KNOW.THIS WAS FUN AS ALWAYS...ANN

Tristan said...

Your poor truck:(..lol!

JANE said...

I don't think I will ever get over the dog poo story, I'm still laughing on that one!! I wish I could stop laughing about it, ROFL!!!!!!

MBB Founder and Editor Denene Millner said...

Donna's hair IS smokin' hot... and my one wish (today!) is that I could just write this doggone story already and be done with it so I can. move. on.

dana said...

So, will Fifi be paintin' a "for sale" sign for that smelly doggie? NO!! Bad things happen--dang, too bad it happened in the truck! Hope your do-nuts were spared! I started with that post and was laughing so hard I really think I pulled something in my lower right abdomen---ouchie!!! However, working through the pain I made it to this post of "I wish Wednesday"---I was caught off guard to see those lovely dentures that decorated our home during Halloween! Yes, we certainly enjoyed the smiles they brought to our little faces everytime we looked at them. In fact, I was set to put a little Martha Stewart glitter on a few if those sweet things and turn them in to Christmas ornaments. I was told they wouldn't have the same effect when hanging from the boughs of a fresh cut scotch pine! Anyway, I feel so honored to be placed on your Wish List! I so enjoyed all of the other wishes you included and will certainly visit the ones I don't know about already!
Here's my Wed. Wishes for YOU-
a bottle of "poo be gone" air spray so your truck will be a pleasure to ride in again, a gallon of your favorite soft drink and a bushel basket full of do-nuts! Gads, life would be good for sure!! Happy Wednesday! Dana

Sincerely Yours said...

Hi Nikki! I wish you were my next door neighbor so we could enjoy that zero calorie treat together!!!lol and btw I was telling my husband about your doggie experience last night and started cracking up again while telling it! I think he is going to take the computer away???lol Have a fun day - Sincerely, Jeannette

Happy To Be said...

Nikki thanks girl you always made me laugh and give me a smile for the day hugs and smiles Gloria

Neabear said...

What can I say? I am getting a laugh a day here with your crazy posts. And the comments people leave, I laugh all over again. Thank you for a great start to my birthday. Yay! I think I needed that laugh.

I WISH you would warn me I need to put on a depend before reading your posts as I need to change my panties from laughing so hard...I am getting a little old you know! ROFLOL!!! I loved the denture adventure!

Christmas Hugs,
Kathi :)

Deb said...

Hi Nikki! I'm with you girl on that last one, I just want to rip it right off the page and eat it and lose weight. LOL!!!! I did stop by to get a good look at those dentures (it was a hoot!) Now don't stay out of trouble we need you to make our day! Deb

Beverly said...

I like the way you think. And, Dana's post with the dentures was the funniest thing. I laughed until I cried.

Your daughter is gorgeous. It's okay that she forgot her turtleneck this time. ;-)

Now, may I have my hot fudge cake? I need to lose some weight.

Nancy said...

Hi Nikki, I wish I was as funny as you! Your the best! Looooove the last one...how I wish that one too!!! Nancy

Anonymous said...

Hey Nikki,

I wish I had won @ Fifi's instead of you, there I said it, seriously I am very happy for you, her work is awesome !!!

I love Weds. Wishes !!

Have a great day,
Kathy :)

Lee Laurie said...

I wish that I could snap my fingers or wiggle my nose and my whole house would be clean and decorated and organized for Christmas! To me it is fun to do all of those things...but I'm so busy with work that I don't have time. When I get home from work, I just want to flop down on my bed and of course get out my laptop and visit my friends, especially you because you make my day! I'm so glad that I found you. Thanks for making life seem not so serious all of the time.

Sue said...

Everywhere I look....Brian Dennehy!! I hope he appreciates that atleast one person still thinks he's hot!

gingela5 said...

These are great! And I wish I could make fun of someone for liking Brian Dennehy but I have a weird crush too--Gil Grissom! Haha And I too wish that little beauty was only 0 zero calories! And your daughter is BEAUTIFUL!

Shannon said...

I definitely vote for you being in charge of calories!! I would be a skinny little toothpick if you were ;-)
Thanks for the stroll around your blogosphere!

sandi said...

I wish there were more hours in the day...Maybe just like five more hours a day from now till Christmas.

Or I wish I had a few elves to help me wrap. You all have no idea how much help I need!

LadyFi said...

Sandi - I have elves in my computer... perhaps they can help you?

I'm all for that zero calorie thing!

Anonymous said...

ps I have always loved Brian Dennehey and I don't know why, I find him so sexy !!!

Kathy :)

eve cleveland said...

Nikkster,

Eve

Linda said...

OH yes!! I wish you were in charge of the calorie thing too. Could you make porterhouse and pasta in the same category as your sundae please?? Pretty please??!!!

Straight to Your Hart said...

I wish I could look smokin hot in my photos with my clothes on!! Off..there would be some serious doggie moments with the mouth end..sorry!

The Blonde Duck said...

Susie Q said...

Okay now...who told you about me and Brian Dennehy?? Hmm? Huh? Me? Oh YEAH....I did didn't I! Am I obsessed? Really? Aw gee, only for 30 years or so...that's all!

This gave me such a smile today but then, all of your posts make me smile. You have such a gift for laughter and joy and it is truly infectious.

First sweet BJ left me a Brian gram and now you...maybe I am a we bit nuts? Nah...
I love ya Nikki. You are the best!

Love,
Sue

Shelia said...

Hi Nikkiness! Thanks for posting about Dana and all those spare dentures! I don't know how I missed it, but I did! Now I hope all your wishes come true, Dear One!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Firefly@www.firefly-shop.org said...

Cool wish list as always :)

tammy said...

I wish God would've put you in charge of that whole calorie thing too.

Off to check out those other blogs now...

T said...

I'd SO grant any of those wishes if I had the power... especially that calorie one!

Ally said...

Great wishes, very fun post! =) I've missed your blog! Sorry to hear that about your truck, sooo glad that wasnt me, I would have jumped outta the window!

countrygirl3031 said...

Hi Nikki ~ what a great post! I want that truck too and mine doesn't even smell like doggie poo! And that brownie sundae...oh yummmmmmm!

Hugz,
michele

Marrdy said...

Who really wants a Christmas Tree when they could have 4th row tickets?? I would trade my first borne for Jazz tickets.

And yes, your daughter should obey her mommy...I have one of those daughters too. She's gonna drive me to drink something harder than Diet Coke, real coke maybe!

Go JAZZ!!!!

Heather said...

You get my vote in heaven to be in charge of calories!

jeanne said...

I do agree with you about the blogs especially Dana and Bo. I need to visit the others. On your reccamend I would go anywhere. LOL. Well almost. Try febreeze in your truck. It works.

I wish my Christmas boxes weren't covering my great room right now. I don't think I have ever taken this long to decorate before. Things just keep me from home right now. I am almost there. Still missing the deer for the Mantel????

Christmas hugs...Jeanne

ko said...

Oh my!!!!! I think I might have tears in my eyes!!! You are to kind!! :) SO SO SO SO SWEET! I wish all of these wonderful things for you, BUT YOU NEED A FORD!! HAHAA! LOVE YOU!! YOU ARE SO SO SO SO SOSOSOSO HILLARIOUS! I wish I was in control of the calorie thing toooo! haha

oh yea....Your daughter is ONE HOT CHIC..my hubby was walking by and like took a double take...I took care of HIM...ANYWAY!!! WOW!!!! SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!!! Also, how do you make all your dog pics so funny with the bubbles, hearts, etc......???????

Lisa Loo said...

I wish I would have voted for you for president!!!
I am not a real decorator person but the dentures have totally inspired me--finally--a decorating idea I can sink my teeth into---oh stop--somebody had to say it--I just can't help myself.....
Have you thought of maybe trying a different car freshener--like perhaps new car or cinnamon apple--I'm sure dog poo smells a lot better with just a hint of cinnamon......

As for that "little nugget"-- if you set it in a pair of those dentures---that should really take off the calories....I'm just thinking out loud here...

You crack me up--great post!!!!

Loved the comments about Lacey! You are a funny girl. I hope Crumpet is back in your good graces, if not, let me know and I'll buy him a plane ticket to Cali!

Titania Starlight said...

I enjoyed all of your wishes. I put a postie on my desk to play next Wednesday. You are so very creative. :o)

salmagundi said...

I wish you were in charge of the calorie situation, too. There needs to be some humor in that aspect of our lives. How about tickets to see the Jazz vs the Nuggets in a border war??? Sally

Jen r. said...

Your daughter is beautiful!!!!

Charli and me said...

Can you just imagine the possibilities if we never had to worry about calories. I enjoyed reading your post. Your daughter is beautiful. I hope you have a good evening.

Jill said...

Your poor truck! I hope that wish comes true. I will make that one of my wishes today!!!!!!!!!!!

Sandy Toes said...

Pine smelling poo poo???You are too much and just too funny!

Hey Nikki,
Thanks for jumpin by the jungle today, that was a great idea the different voices! I'll try that and also speak in foreign languages, they won't know if it's right, LOL!!

AJ said...

Oh my friend Nikki! I can't even try to be funny right now! I just wish my husband would find a job! 'Nuff said.

Tracey said...

Great post Nikki...It's so nice how you include so many other of your blog friends in your posts! and I agree with you totally about Kyley...I love her! She is a breath of fresh air!!

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

Hi Nikki,
This is a great idea for Wednesday! It's fun to read your post and visit the others!

dana said...

I knew I liked your mama! :)
She also looked so cute in your NY photos!

Dana

Michelle said...

Love your bloggy shout outs!

As a mom, seeing my daughter looking like a victoria secret model would make me want to run over and put a big ole frumpy sweater on her. :)

trogblog said...

I just want to sleep in and perhaps get a shout out in an upcoming Wednesday Wishes:)

Rue said...

Good morning funny lady :)

I wish your daughter would give me my body back. It's been missing for about 18 years. Hey! Isn't that about how old she is?? ;)

hugs,
rue

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Are those dentures in that mantel-piece? DENTURES???? I did a double-take and scrolled back up and sure enough, those ARE dentures! *LMAO*

I'm a day late, of course. Wouldn't be me if I was able to get my butt out here in time.

My one single wish for Wednesday is that I didn't have to post that blasted car-wreck. I dread getting our next insurance bill. Oiy! At least, Megawatt is fine. Still really upset, but fine. I'm going to send her out here to click away on your linky love to distract her from being so upset amidst taking finals. Poor kid.

The Muse said...

Are these Wish a Wednesdays working out for you? Because if they are...I'm joining the club! LOL

Michael said...

Hey Nikki...if you decide you're in the market for a new truck (one that doesn't smell like dog poo), I can share my GM discount with friends until Jan 2nd. Think about it!
