If I Were a Real Housewife

Riley and I took a little drive after Justin's baseball game around this gorgeous neighborhood. Beautifully built houses surrounded the bluest lake I've seen in these parts of Michigan. I immediately started daydreaming about what it would be like to live in that neighborhood with perfectly cut lawns and houses with rooms upon rooms.

Then I came home and watched the Original Gangsters of The Real Housewives -- that's The Real Housewives of OC for those of you who don't partake in such trash. I got to thinking. If I were a Real Housewife, what would my life look like?

Maybe a little something like this...

Justin and I would live in a big house with lots and lots of windows and stone detailing. Windows are really important to me -- the more natural light, the better.

We would have a pool in our backyard because if there's one thing I hate, it's laying out with a bunch of strangers around me. This girl needs to tan in private!

I would have the perfect white kitchen to cook up all sorts of meals. The more space, the better!

My closet would be an OCD person's dream. Neatly organized -- a place for everything and everything in it's place. If there is one thing that gets under my skin, it's a messy closet. Justin would have a matching closet, which means we would need to go on a major shopping spree to fill his up.

Inside my closet, near the best natural lighting obviously, would be my makeup table filled with endless amounts of makeup. It will be like my own personal Ulta. That right there is heaven!

We would have the most adorable children who are always dressed impeccably from the moment they are born. They'll also be amazing athletes. No doubt about that.

We would adopt a child -- or twelve -- from Africa. Actually, I might just turn into Angelina Jolie and adopt a child from every country.

We would take family vacations in Bora Bora at least twice a year -- once in the dead of Winter, and of course for Spring Break.

Welp, if that isn't a super materialistic list, then I don't know what is! If you were a Real Housewife, what would your life look like?

If only it were true! Le sigh... I love windows too. Natural light is a big deal. It just makes everything so light and airy.
