♥~I WISH WEDNESDAYS~♥

I've decided to start a new tradition here on my blog. It's gonna be called "I Wish Wednesdays". Which means I'm gonna do it on Wednesdays (duh)...that it will be filled with wishes......and that I'm getting desperate for blogging ideas.


So here goes the maiden voyage...



I Wish..........I had Maria's patio.... OK and her face and figure. On her blog "Unpretentious Style" you will find the other gorgeous rooms in her home.


I wish..... I had the talent of Rose over at Santa Makers Journey and could create something this beautiful. Go check out the amazing Santa's she makes. OH MY!


I wish.......I had this adorable hutch with the little sitting bench. CRAP THIS THING IS SO DANG WONDERFUL! But alas it belongs to Laurie at Bargain hunting with Laurie . If this thing wasn't nailed down....



I wish......this GLORIOUS bedroom was in my house. It was designed and decorated by the amazingly talented Gollum from Designs by Gollum . I'm pretty sure she designed this room just for me....I wonder if she'd notice if I moved in?

I wish..........I had the ability to send love, joy and happiness over the blogosphere like dear BJ from Sweet Nothings and darling Dot from Pickets place do. They make everyone feel warm, fuzzy and loved.


I wish...... I had this kitchen.....not that I'd cook...but boy would it be pretty to look at!!! This belongs to Laurie from Decorating Fanatic. Check out the rest of her gorgeous house too.


I wish .....I had a cool sister like Jill & Amy . I've begged their mom to adopt me but she just gets this horrified look on her face and then passes out. I guess I'll just have to settle for visiting them at JillJillboBill and Amelia Bedelia . Go see them and you'll wish you could be their sister too....BUT I HAVE FIRST DIBS!!!

I Wish.......I had Tootsie's touch with flowers. No you did not just die and go to heaven....that REALLY is one of her flower gardens. Go see the rest of her paradise at Tootsie Time. Just don't step on the tiny little shrine that the butterflies and bees built...they use it to worship her.



I wish.....I had the sense of humor and amazing ability to write freaking funny stuff like Anna at Life just keeps getting weirder..... Dana from Life is Good and (hmmm she doesn't use her name so we'll call her Nanny) over at Nanny goats in Panties. These women are my comedic heroes!!! If you want to laugh until liquid shoots out your orifices....go see them.
I wish......... I'd written THIS post. It made me laugh so hard! But it was written by the brilliant and beautiful Tammy from Tammy's Time flies. Ya gotta check it out!

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!

Becky said...

Mornin Nikki;

I just wish I could quit reading everyones blog and get up off my booty patootie and wrap those Christmas presents I keep putting off!

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Mornin Nikki!

Oh you should do a Mr. Linky with this because I'd be all over it! Especially with the current state of my kitchen, oh boy do I have a boat load of I wishes...such as I wish I had just gone with the Sage/Olive green in the first place instead of now having to cover over the Mint Chocolate Chip Green, which is what I'm going to be doing this week.

I wish I had a smaller butt...

I wish my almost 3 year old was potty trained.

And the list goes on!

What a great idea. Seriously, Mr. Linky!

Dina said...

these are great..now I wish for all of those things..plus the time to blog and be that talented..holy crap!

Jan said...

So cute Nikki. I wish I could give you a real bear hug.

Smilingsal said...

lol At first I thought you meant that Tammy had written what I had just read. Then I used my brain, went to her post and laughed myself silly. After I changed my pants, I came back to you to leave a comment.

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Great idea, I love and share your wishes! esp to have Tootsie's green thumb, imagine living in the caribbean and can't garden for the life of me! lol!!

beth at aunties said...

Good Morning wonderful Nikki! It was a wonderful post filled with love to make most anyone's day. The bedroom and patio were gorgeous! My wish is to be able to write like you:) and spread sunshine and cheer as much as your big heart does. I wonder how big Santa's bag is?

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

What a great idea. I loved this post!! It's a good way to check out some blogs you may not have visited before. You are brilliant!!

Sandy Toes said...

Mama said...

I wish you were my neighbour :)

Linda said...

I wish I had though of this first!! Love all the blogs you introduced us to!

Ginger said...

Great post Nikki. I think some of the things you wish for, have already come true for you. You have the great sense of humor and write like Jill, Can you imagine being related to her? You would have a permanent stomache from laughing. Your home and back yard are gorgeous...and lets not forget you have the talented Crumpet and Ozzie, no one else has them!!!!
I was reading a blog yesterday and someone commented that you are the queen of blogs...I have to agree.
Ginger

Kristen said...

Your blog is always a first for me to check in the mornings...I wish I found you earlier because ever since I did you brighten my day with your posts.
Thanks for sharing these others to check out

French Fancy said...

That's a good idea, because it sure does get difficult sometimes to know what to blog about. There are some great links in that post - what creative people there are in blogland.

What do I wish for - I wish I could lose this two stone I keep going on about.

Lizzie said...

what a sweet idea. and it helps those of us without time to seek out great blogs :)

sandi said...

I am going to go check these blogs out right now!

Always fun to see what you come up with!

ann said...

WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS?WHAT A GREAT IDEA.I HAVE YOUR TIARA.I'M GOING TO TRY TO LEAVE IT HERE.IF IT DOESN'T WORK,PLEASE COME TO MY PLACE AND PICK IT UP...ANN

A New England Life said...

I wish I had that bedroom too! It's gorgeous! As is the kitchen.

I wish I liked to post on my blog as much as I like to read everyone else's post's. That's my blogging wish :)

My family is wishing I would decorate our Christmas tree that's been up for 4 days. Guess I better go do that now!!!

Quirkyloon said...

Great post Nikki! I loved the post at Tammy Time Flies. It was hilarious!

I think the I Wish Wednesdays are a keeper! Great idea.

Straight to Your Hart said...

I wish for a new butt...mine has a crack in it!! Sorry...tehe.

I wish for a pool like Nikki..and my youngest child Sara does too!!

Tootsie said...

I wish I made people feel warm and fuzzy too!
thanks for the mention...you make me smile...and you DO make me feel warm and fuzzy...
I love your post..and the I wish Wednesday idea is awesome...I bet everyone starts this!

Anonymous said...

Hi Nikki,

What a great idea :)

I wish you wouldn't be so hard on yourself about 'what to blog" a photo of your pretty home would suffice. Just be you...we love you !!

I wish that all the terror in the world would go away...

I wish that the economy hurries up and gets fixed so no more people are layed off.

I wish Barney Frank would move to another country. Oh I forgot it's the XMas season and I must be nice.

And most of all I wish that everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season :)

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday,
Kathy :)

Chris said...

I love your idea and my wish is to be as funny, smart and creative as you.

Chris

VE said...

I wish you'd come on over and help VE in his time of need. My Tue Dec 2nd post has the details. I call upon you! The gnomes will be waiting...

Kritta22 said...

I wish I was just related to Jill and Amy! I'll take a close cousin.

tammy said...

Love the "I Wish" theme. And I was loving clicking on all the links, seeing all the fabulous blogs and then all of a sudden there I was! I must really be moving up in the world to get linked to by Nikki. Thanks for the shout-out. I heart you.

TMI Tara said...

I wish for all these things too! But I'm most covetous of that patio and her style. It's FAB!

Oh I'm here for selfish purposes too. I now have a kidz button and I'm asking all my friends and fam to add it to their sidebars to help me let people know about it. Head over to my blog to find out how to add it. Yeah, I'm shameless for sure! Thanks Nikki!

squawmama said...

KC Mom said...

I wish for those things too! So...what I wish for is to lose 10 lbs!!

salmagundi said...

I wish I had your sense of humor and style of writing. My kids will tell you I'm way too serious and lack a funny sense of anything!! I try to be funny on occasion, but it falls short! There are a couple of nameless things I'm good at, though. Sally

Firefly said...

Oh yes it wishes do come true than I have only one for today: I WISH FOR THIS AWFUL BACK PAIN TO BE GONE :)

The Blonde Duck said...

It's like good ol' jimmeny Cricket said--A dream is a wish your heart makes!

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

My wish (and prayer!!) is that my kids will get through their semester exams and home safely for the holidays.

Laura said...

I wish I had my Christmas decorations up. And I wish I could hug your two adorable dogs!

Michelle said...

I hate to tell you this but the freaking funny wish has already been granted! You my dear are freaking funny!

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Oh, can I copy this list and use it for my wish list??? You know, you are a lot of these things yourself! :) You got it going on, girlfriend! Great post! ~Rhonda :)

laurie said...

Well gosh darn, Nikki, I am just speechless. Ok, we all know that's not true, but I did sit there for about 2 mins. with my mouth wide open! How flattering that you would include my humble little hutch in your wish list, especially when your list includes such other wonderful wishes! And what a great blogging idea this is! Shoot! I wish I'd thought of this. I really am SO flattered to be included. If your wish to get more funny than you already are comes true, I won't be able to come to your blog unless I'm already in the bathroom, because I almost wet my pants from laughing so hard when I'm visiting your blog. OK, I wish I had Nikki's great sense of humor and her brilliance for this blog idea! laurie

~♥~ Monica S said...

I wish I had Maria's patio too.. and her garden!!! (That one is one of my dreams!!!)

And I wish I could've walked barefoot with Rue in Arizona!

I liked this wish-idea!!!

Monica

Adventure girl wanna be said...

I wish I had a shot of motivation and adrenaline to whip my house into shape;)
Cool idea;)

I wish I had the motivation (ie: time) to even CLEAN my freaking house, let alone make it so stinkin' cute!

Darlene said...

I wish I could meet YOU cause I LOVE your blog, your home, your dogs and you are sooooo funny!!!

imjacobsmom said...

Well Nikki - you've done it again!! You've come up with another great, wonderful idea!! I wish I was as clever as you!! I wish I had more time to visit all the blogs, all the time, in all the land!! How's that for some wishes?
Have a good one ~
Lynette

Thanks,
Lee Laurie

Tracey said...

You silly girl....I was quoting your wish above and saying you don't need to wish that because you already do that....ok are you totally confused now?

Sue said...

You ARE the funniest person blogging....hands down. Although Anna is pretty damn funny... Second, how can you run our of blogging ideas?? I'm in the process of writing one about my drunken neighbor our walking his dog...there's stories on every corner!

Carolynn said...

I wish:

- that I lived in a warmer climate;
- that I was independently wealthy,
- that I had a career that was nourishing & fulfilling;
- that I had all my Christmas shopping done & shipped away;
- that I had time to do some Christmas baking to share with my colleagues at work.
- that I could sit with you, Nikki, over a cup of tea or a glass of bubbly and talk & laugh the day away.

Carolynn

Gollum said...

I couldn't find Young Gollum today--found him in the blue guest room. I told him he is like a locust. His room is a trainwreck. Now he is working on that room. Oh, my! LOL

I didn't know Maria had a blog. I'll go visit. Speaking of rooms,
I was just thinking about your gorgeous red toile bedroom, and your fabulous cream Master.

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

As always.... I just throw on my crown and wish for world peace....

Saucy Scribe Debora said...

Great idea - great post and beautiful pics...I wish, I had more hours in the day - does that count?

santamaker said...

Nikki!!!! Just came over to see what kind of trouble you were brewing here in your amazing little blog and to see one of my "sons" staring back at me was a doozer! Thanks, girl! What an honor to be one of your wishes! (I wish I could have a bite of a cider doughnut...I know, I can't let go of that ...You know I'm a food addict too!)

Justine said...

Ooh, what fun wishes!!!!! Isn't Gollum's bedroom to die for? Ah, to sleep in that luxury!
Do you realize that the song you have playing... the guy sounds like he's on an old LP going realllllllllly slowwwwwwwwwwwly. Kinda freaky. LOL

Justine :o )

Brandy said...

I wish I could get 79 comments on EVERY post! LOL!

jeanne said...

Good morning Nikki, I love your wish list and your featuring of some of our fellow bloggers. A terrific idea for posting some lovely photos too. I enjoyed all. Happy wishing!!!

Come over for a give-a-way drawing. there are still three more days.

Hugs...Jeanne

Eudea-Mamia said...

Really, I'm pathetic.

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Wonderful idea. I enjoyed your first I Wish Wednesday post!

Oh my gosh. That hutch is FANTASTIC!

I wish I had a window in my office. That's what I wish. :)

Nikki, this was such fun. I'm glad you've been wishing.

For my wish - I wish my boss would pay me to stay home. ;-)

Rachael said...

I wish my boys would not leave messes in every room in the house, I wish my laundry would magically wash and dry and fold itself, and I wish I had thinner thighs.....
Which one of those do you think might come true?

Swirl Girl said...

I wish I could have read this on Wednesday!

I do like this idea!!

can I steal it?

Tiffany said...

I wish I wasn't a day late. Figures.

dana wyzard said...

And I wish I had your house. Your pool. Your rock garden and your dogs. Now stop your whining and look around yourself!!!

Why, if I had HALF the readers that you do, I'd be so happy I'd pee your pants.

What? You thought I'd pee MY pants?

momstheword said...

Well I think you're funny and I'll bet everyone else does too. I always come here for a laugh! I've even brought my hubby once or twice!

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

Picket said...

Awwwww Nikki ..you little sweet Toot..if you only knew what you have brought to all of us here at blogland! I wish I didn't second guess myself so much & I wish I could stay out of the fridge more....it's like you just go there and open the door.. stare inside and wait for something to call you! lol Great post girl....you're second to none!

nikkicrumpet said...

See people...THAT comment above is why she's my hero!

Laurie - Decorating Fanatic said...

Hi you! Oh you make me laugh! That was a good post and now I know why I suddenly got a slight traffic increase over at my place! I was endorsed by YOU! haaa! :) You are priceless you know that? But that really was an interesting post. I am going to check some of those places out. I like the idea of wishful wednesdays! Sorry you are behind on the christmas decorating - last year I was so NOT in the mood - I go in shifts, I guess. I know you've got the Magic Nikki touch. But you can forgo any christmas decorating in lieu of entertaining all of us here in blogland! We sure do love you! ~ Laurie

Jill said...

If I did a wish list I would need to start a new blog! I like the idea of Wish Wednesday!

Geri said...

Sheesh! I wish I had such a sweet spirit as you.

I wish I could get 155 comments on single post.

I wish I had named my blog blah, blah, blah.

I wish I had your humorous inclination.

I wish I had ... (well as you can tell I could go on and on).

P.S. I wish you a Merry Christmas

momstheword said...

You are so funny! I've seen a picture of your schnauzer, so now you've given me a great verbal picture here, lol!
