Naked Ladies

I know that their name is Bare Naked Ladies, but I thought that that title would be a bit more interesting.

So, the song If I had a Million Dollars by the Bare Naked Ladies has been on the radio quite a bit lately. In honor of that classic song, I thought I would do a post about what I would do if I had a million dollars. Spoiler Alert: I am not as generous as that infamous (more than famous) band so very few items on this list are for other people.

  • Put new carpet in our house. Midnight blue and blood red might do it for some people, I am not that person.

  • A new rug for the family room.

  • A maid.

  • A cruise.

  • I would hire the people who do What Not To Wear to outfit me with a new wardrobe. I'd like to think that I don't qualify for that show, but I might need a bit of help.

  • A personal chef.

  • I'd pay Bryce a handsome amount to get rid of his hideous, ghetto, why-would-anyone-own-one pheasant lamp.

  • A trampoline.

  • A plasma TV.

  • The sailboat picture at Unique Thrift Store.

  • I'd donate a large amount to research to find out why two year old kids have tantrums, and how to make it stop.

  • I'd hire someone to potty train my kids, not the ones that are already potty trained, obviously.

  • A personal hair stylist, by that I mean someone to do my girls' hair. That becomes a bit tiresome.

  • I'd pay a movie company to put me in a period piece movie, like Pride and Prejudice, as an extra.

Um...I think that's it.



  1. I'm with ya on the potty training. I'm amazed I've survived it so far. I guess I'm 2/3 of the way done though...

  2. Excellent list! How much is that sailboat painting? :)

  3. and to think, i thought I was going to see naked ladies on your post. Disappointing. I LOVE your blog. just because I don't comment as often as i'd like, or read it as much as I want, I LOVE IT. I want to copy it and paste it on my blog. Oh, yeah, it is that good. Although, I would take full credit for my plagerism and not say who the whitty source is.


You're a valued reader, thanks for your comments, they help keep me sane....
