French - AF


According to An Island Life: 

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."


If I believed in past lives (which I don’t), I think I could have been a Francophile. Or maybe what I want to say is I WISH I could have been a Francophile.

You see, I am obsessed with the language, the style, the fries, the kissing.

Aaaah, I love frenchness.

What is it about those Frenchies that gets my heart a thumpin’? I read expat blogs like they’re going out of style. I try to read and watch every french related book and movie I can get my hands on. I even secretly wish I could pull off wearing a beret, while playing the french horn… Oh la la, to be French.

Vive la baguette!

My question today:

If you could reinvent your life (not that it isn’t fabulous right now!), what would you do? 
Who would the ‘new you’ be?


If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at today's installation of Aloha Friday at An Island Life. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

I dream about what it would be like to be an outgoing, personality-driven person. Someone who has their own style, whose definition of self you have to envy. (I was somewhat rewarded this past week when my sister-in-law showed me a book and said, "When I saw this, I thought, MIKA!") It just seems like it would be so fun to be confident enough to create an entire wardrobe and personality style...

I would like to be an astronaut :D
And more outgoing.

My question is Menage a trois? You like that too? LOL!

I would like to be born in the 20's, but with no rascism, or attleast singing at the cotton club in NYC, like Cab Calloway!

A professional athlete (tennis player, maybe?)... What a better life than a "job" that pays well --assuming you are good, --and one that keeps you fit, too?

Suzanne said...

Back in the 50's, a combo of June Cleaver and the Yaya's...because I would want my cards and cocktail night, too. But, I totally get the whole french thing. I could easily be sitting at a paris cafe as we speak...and I just hired a french tutor because I want my girls and I to speak this beautiful language fluently. Great question!!!!!

Jennifer said...

Be more social, healthy and a lot more wealthy. Otherwise, I am fine. :)

Theta Mom said...

I would love to be a singer, maybe because I can't sing to save my life! Natural born singers are truly inspiring to me.

Shelly said...

I love all things British! I would love to live in England in the countryside and be a writer and not worry about anything but that. Only in my dreams!

I'd be more wealthy. That's really the only thing I often wish was different.

jesse and susan said...

i have always wished to learn to play the guitar and become a country singer. i have a terrible fear of speaking in public, so that would be so far out of my comfort zone.

blueviolet said...

Why I'd be YOU of course!

Manic Mother said...

I don't think I could answer that in your comments..I would be here all day!

Becca said...

I think I would have continued playing music. I have been missing it recently!

An Oscar-winning actress, but I would be one without all the baggage that comes with it. I would like a house in the hills and a nice Mercedes to get me to Rodeo Drive.I would like to have Rachel Zoe as my stylist and get tons of free swag. Aloha and take care.

Ooh, this is a tough one!

I was a pretty good tennis player when I was in my teens and early
20's ~~~~~~ I always wonder what it would be like to have played professionally and maybe win at a little thing called Wimbledom! (wink wink)

Now that isn't asking for too much, is it! LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Jenni Jiggety said...

I'd like to be the me I am now, only richer. :-D

kailani said...

If I had to do things over, the only thing I would change is the city I live in. I would love to live on a different part of the island.

sheila said...

I'd either be an archeologist digging up Mayan artifacts...or 'finding myself' in India.

Pamela M. Kramer said...

If I could reinvent my life. I would have followed my instincts more. I think I would have gone the talk show host route or more into graphic design. The new me would be more of a designer.

Veronica Lee said...

I love all things American!! I would love to live in the US and be your neighbour, sister!!

Alicia said...

Oh..good question!!

Oh..I always wanted to be a Fly Girl!! LOLOLOL!

Susie said...

The new me would be thinner and better with money:-)

LZ @ My Messy Paradise said...

I think my new me would be a city girl. Take advantage of a big city for a few years before committing to the burbs...

Serendipity is Sweet said...

What a fabulous question! The only big regret I have is that I didn't pursue becoming a professional ballerina. I danced for years and loved it. But I was a big fish in a small pond. I was accepted into some great schools, but my fears and a bout with anorexia prevented me from leaving home for any of them.

I wish I had gone for it. I love my family and wouldn't want it to be different, but I wish I had chased that dream first, when I was younger.

BrnEyedGal said...

Oh MY...your makin me think? LOL

Ya know I always regreted not trying out for my college Pom-Pon squad and joining a Sorority too.

Isn't that funny? Seriously, It has always bothered me because I had it all goin for me then and I was too shy...(Or I doubted myself)
Should have just gone for it ALL!!! :)
That's what I wanna teach my son...reach for the STARS!!!

Have a great weekend!!

Tami said...

Hmmm.. this is a great question! My biggest regret is..Never finishing school and becoming what I really wanted to be..
