27 Dresses, The Wedding Planner, Father of the Bride....all on my favorite movies list, and all movies I own. Ever since I was little, I wanted to be a wedding planner. I love everything about weddings and receptions, (do you see my flower girl face^...that gig was serious business to me), and have always liked things done the way they're supposed to be done. I think all wedding planners have that nature about them.
Now, you couldn't pay me enough to be a wedding planner (even though I do have a Wedding Pinterest Board, because, duh, necessary!). Pinterest wasn't even around when I got married 7 years ago, and I feel like it's completely blown the whole wedding industry out of proportion. I feel like nothing would ever be good enough or big enough or special enough for the bride. I still love helping with weddings...but being in charge of them? ....no thank you.
Right now I'm actually living my dream job. I've always dreamed of having adorable little people to be a mommy to. It's the best gig in the world...(and the hardest, ps.) I love going to museums, kid classes, soccer games, learning every name of every construction vehicle ever....all of it. (Well...the waking up in the middle of the night part, not so much...but looking back at their "hey, Mommy!" at 3am is pretty cute...when I'm fully rested and they're sleeping through the night.)
Even though the optometrist asked me the other day, "So you're just a mom now?", (ahhh!!!!!), this is my job now and I'm happy and content and know I'm doing exactly what I should be doing.
Once the boys are all in school, and Noel is settled in a job after law school, I'm planning on going back to school to get my Masters. I've always thought I'd go back for Dance Education, like my undergrad, or Teaching. Maybe I still will, but I'm leaning more towards Counseling now...we'll see how it all goes!
Are you currently living out your childhood dream job?!
Excited to be linking up with Helene today for her Blogtober challenge.
