What Would Your Wish Coupon Look Like?

A few nights ago, I got together  with a few old friends. We were talking about where our lives are now and where we see them 10 years from now and the subject of US was a hot topic. We are pretty typical moms, with tweens and teens, busy and focused on raising our families.  Sometimes, when raising a family, the US or ME gets put on the back burner for many years. As your children grow more self sufficient you can let your mind wonder a bit and think about doing something just for you!

I decided to play a fun game and asked everyone, if you could pick your own personalized coupon, a wish coupon what would it look like?  Right away, they were blurting out  massage, mani, pedi and shopping! Typical girl stuff! But I wanted the real juicy stuff, the major purchase, something you secretly dream of! That changed the tone a bit and we had some fun.

There were 6 of us at the table so I will just share, numbers. If the ladies read this, they know who they are!

  1. A Week on a Dude Ranch
  2. A book editing/publishing package
  3. Flying lessons
  4. Scuba Diving
  5. Breast Implants
  6. Me ~ Housecleaning for a year. (A maid has always been my dream)

Wow, they all sounded like great choices, but I have to admit #5 took me a bit by surprise. My friend #5 is very shy and reserved, so sharing that even among friends was intriguing to us all. She even shared that recently, she has been looking at the options available for implants. I haven’t heard much about implants lately, so I just listened and took it all in. She has done her research and with what breast implants cost today  her dream may soon come true. It’s something she has wanted for a long time and rarely does for herself, so with the big “40” birthday on the horizon, she just may get a gift she really wants!!

Isn’t it nice to be able to dream or wish for things while you are with friends? What would  your coupon  look like? What is your secret wish or dream?

      Oh Yolanda, that would be the ultimate of coupons! I bet you may have some trouble redeeming it, though!


  3. How fun 🙂 I guess my biggest wishes would be these:

    To be financially stable enough to not have to always worry about how the bills will get paid.

    Then to be able to have a little extra, and take Abby to travel – I never left the state that I was born in until I was almost 18… I want Abby to see more of what’s out there.
