If I Had Time: Coach Watch Giveaway!







Want to win my Coach Sydney Watch? Keep reading to find out how!

I've never been beyond the US borders; I was always short on the funds or time. While friends were backpacking through Europe, I was baking pretzels and doing myriad odd jobs, scrimping and saving to put myself through school. Free from student loans, I moved to New York with Miku and enough money for one month of rent. I spent the new few years struggling, living in a cramped apartment, and generally figuring out my place in this bustling city. But even though my budget didn't allow for travel, I never felt like I was missing out. After all, I was in New York City - and that was my dream!

Now that I'm settled and seven years in, I can't wait any longer to travel the rest of the world. So when Coach gave me their Sydney Watch and asked me what I'd do if I had the time, I immediately knew the answer: I'd go to Paris. And I'll make the time! My friends and I are planning a trip for next year. Most of them have been to Paris multiple times or have lived there; one of my friends has even written a book about the city. I will be the starry-eyed tourist among seasoned pros, and I'm completely fine with that.

Is there something you'd love to do, but haven't found the time? Tell me in the comments below, and I’ll choose one lucky person to win my watch along with $250 from Coach to help you plan and organize what you don’t have the time to do.


Contest is open to residents of at least 18 years of age in the United States, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Entries will be accepted until October 25th, 5 PM EST. Must provide valid email or active social media account, in order to be notified upon winning. Good luck!



The winner is Megan Staker. Thanks for entering!

  2. If I had the time, I'd spend more of it on bolstering my catering, design, and hand-crafted goods business, Down Cellar. Find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/downcellarcatering, and maybe I'll find the time to make something for you!

  3. I haven't had the time to go back to my mother's native Vietnam! I went for the first time more than 10 years ago ... long overdue! That was also my mom's first time back home after 30+ years in the US — I think a mother/daughter trip is long overdue. All my cousins, aunts, uncles and family overseas are waiting to see us again!

    I'm kim at kimberlyloc dot com or @kimberlyloc on Twitter. Hope to win! Love your blog, Keiko :)

  9. Go back to visit my family in Japan - I haven't been able to go back for two years because of grad school and although I love what I do, I miss my family and home country!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I really want to go home for a couple days or even a week (I am living abroad) but I haven't got the time for that since months :( I absolutely am a home-person and would be more than happy to visit my family but it seems like I have to wait a litte longer :D Cute watch! I might try to win it! Thank you :)

  12. I'd love to take the time to stop and write a book. I've had an idea in my head for years, but have yet to put pen to paper. (I'm old school.) It'd be cathartic and feel like such an amazing accomplishment, regardless of where the finished product ends up. But must do.

  13. Would love time to work on my business.

  15. Hi, Keiko!

    I have lived in Paris for 3 years, and I'm sure you'll love your trip! Have fun!

    If I had the time, I'd get myself a nice digital camera and take pictures of everyone and everything on this planet!

    Love,

  16. I'd love to take a road trip with my sisters. I'm one of four sisters and I'd love to get the four of us together and go somewhere, no distractions, just us.

  17. I'd love to learn how to sew. I took a Home Ec class in schools years ago so I know the basics but I mean *really* sew. I want to be able to make my own cute blouses, skirts and pants and have them look so professionally done that people think I got them from a boutique or high end dept store.

  18. I haven't had the time to properly explore and travel in the past five years! Between work, life, lack of funds, and a (thankfully) brief stint in the hospital, I haven't even been able to get to the beach or sit by a pool for more than a day. I have already declared 2014 to be the year of travel and would love for myself and my boyfriend (who works equally as hard, 6 days a week, and hasn't had the time, as well) to go to Ireland! We've already started saving :)

    I'm Leah - Lrose87@gmail.com. Thanks!

  19. If I had the time, I'd love to redecorate my apartment with my fiancé. He moved in this summer and we haven't had the time to make it feel more like *our* home.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have thought about this almost constantly while in school. I would love to make a quilt for my home! Quilts remind me of my grandmother and how she strived to make her home filled with love and coziness so her house was always like walking into a warm cabin in winter time. I would like to do this as well for my fiance and I's home together.

  21. I'd go to the beach. It's only a few hours away.

  22. Everytime I think about where I would go away to if I had the chance I would go to England immediately. I want to see the Battersea Power Station before its completely gone. Its going to be gone by 2016 I think and I'm always worried that I'll never ever get to see it. Then to get tattooed at Frith St. I always felt like I could fit in there, but they don't have candlepin bowling so I'll never live there.

  23. I would go to Santorini, Greece. It's always been a dream of mine but nursing school keeps me pretty busy. Maybe I'll go after I graduate!

  24. I would love to keep a regular workout schedule I always say later and that comes and goes.. I need time to be on my side...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, what a fantastic giveaway! Like you, I've never had the pleasure of travelling outside of my country either. Being the eldest in a single-parent family I had to help with everything including finances. I'm the first one in my family to graduate from university, which was a huge accomplishment for us. I would love to take a trip to pamper myself! As a history major I would absolutely love to see the places I've been reading about all these years.

  28. It seems as if our world thrives on being "busy". Busy is the new busy! It is almost cool to say, "I'm too busy". I am a mother of two beautiful boys. My youngest was diagnosed with autism 8 months ago and now I know what a busy mom looks like. We work hard daily to fit in all of his special needs. If I had the time, I would wrap my two little boys up and take them on a grand adventure to see the sites of the world. There is so much beauty around and when we get wrapped up in being "busy" we forget to stop and see the sites. My first stop would be the Grand Canyon then on to the giant Pacific Ocean then over to New York City to see a Broadway Show. "Oh, the places we'd go", if we had the time. juliembarnes @ gmail (dot) com

  29. If I had the time I would love to explore more of the area that I live in! It is abundant in lakes & hiking trails which is something I really enjoy doing. It would be wonderful to have the time to go on a canoe trip with my husband and be able to explore many lakes and hike through the beautiful trails in my own backyard!

  30. I'd love to have a weekend away with my love with no worries about college, homework, or work.

  31. If i have the time, -and the money- i would redecorate my little apartment, i would take my mom for a girls weekend to a pretty city with lots of museums and places to see. If i have the time i would take pictures everywhere!

  32. If I had time I would go on a cross Canada (my home country!) road trip in an RV with my bf and our dog.

    ReplyDelete
  33. If I had more time I would go back to school or invest in Rosetta Stone to learn French. I love that language and would want to travel there one day too!

    ReplyDelete
  34. If I had time, I'd take a trip to NYC. I've been there multiple times and lived in Brooklyn for a brief period, but I always want to get back there. I live in Vermont, but it's a situation of so close, yet so far away.

    ReplyDelete
  35. If I had more time...I'd ask for more time! To explore, travel, be with my family, sit by the ocean, eat healthy, smile more, laugh more...live more! This reminds me a lot about meditating - we use so much of our time checking social media, running around in circles, and yet we don't think we have time to reflect. We do.

    But for contest purposes :) - If I had more time, I would create art (painting, contemplative photography, poetry, etc) everyday and start a blog.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you for your blog it inspires me so much! I would make more time to volunteer in my community I would love to start my own non-profit after school program something involving teaching children how to play musical instruments (I play the violin) but since college I find I haven't made the time to practice! Perhaps helping others would in turn help me keep up with my form of self-expression. Enjoy Paris that is on my to-do someday list too! Salu! Twitter: maketime4rosie

  37. If I had the time and the money of course, I would love to tour Paris.

  38. I have been wanting to adopt a baby, but have not found the time to begin the process, which could indicate I have not had time for a baby. Perhaps I will now make time.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I had a second baby almost fives months ago so I don't have much free time. But if I did, I would spend the day at the spa getting pampered. A massage, pedicure, and a facial!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My grandmother lived THE most fascinating life, and I've always promised myself I'd write her story. I've begun here and there over the years, but I need time to research and actually do it.

    Thanks for the giveaway, and enjoy Paris!

    ReplyDelete
  41. If I had the time, I would not just visit a city, I would take the time and really explore a country, from border to border, and spend time there soaking it all in. This may sound spoiled to someone who has never been to Paris, but I would just really love to travel all over France and see the different pays and learn from all the people.

    By the way, you only ever get your first time in Paris, so you're the lucky one in the group! :)

  42. I'd go to Europe! I'd visit France, Italy and Greece. It has always been my dream to visit the historic landmarks that I've only had the pleasure of experiencing via books and photos. I'd probably burst into tears at the sight of the Eiffel Tower. I'm such a sap :)

  43. It's my dream to go to New York City actually. I've studied in London and traveled all over Europe but have NEVER been to NYC. I just got a second job to help save money so I can come visit. It's my dream to go there, preferably with a friend, but if I have to go alone I will too. I've been following your blog for quite some time and it would be really amazing to meet you and miku as well. I'm obsessed with your fluffy pup. :)

    I hope I win!! That coach watch is GORGEOUS!!

  44. If I had the time, I would want to visit Paris, Milan, Rome, London, Munich, Vienna, and Belgium (not necessarily in that order hahah) for a little more than a week each . If I could rewind, I'd like to have started dancing at a younger age and not when I was in college - I never realized how much I was missing out on. If I did not have the luxury of traveling overseas, then I would be happy just being able to find time to eat yummy food from all the restaurants near my home(s) (I go to school in Cleveland but am originally from Detroit). http://caffeinatedconvos.tumblr.com/

  48. My dream is to backpack around Germany and the UK. My best friend and I tried to meet up this year (he's in the UK), but much like you, our schedules did not match up to do a proper trip. It's been 3 years since we've seen each other and this trip would mean we would get a full week to catch up and make new memories instead of having our once a month Skype chats.

    thanks for hosting such a great giveaway! Can't wait to hear about your trip to Paris next year!!

  49. As is usually the case, when I had time I had no money and now that I have two cents to rub together I have not time.

    If given the time I would travel. Any sort: backpacking trip, cruise, road trip, europe. Basically anything past my city limits.

  52. Most people agree I have a brilliant creative side that I do not express enough in my day job as a project manager (albeit I do solve problems creatively!). My ultimate dream is to open up a primitive things gift shop that would be the talk of the town. My shop would have one of those cute chalkboard signs on the sidewalk wrapped in grape vine with the special of the day! Ultimately, I'd love to purchase an old farmhouse or a building that I could turn into a eye catching shop. I'd up-cycle old furniture for my store shelving and spaces, and make the store was warm and cozy with décor. The store would offer primitive finds such as saltshaker, barn doors, and "grungy" merchandise -- or "prims", my personal crafts, and unique crafts from those in the neighborhood (to which I would consign in my shop). This dream of opening my shop would allow me to go junkin' and flea marketing and turn old things into treasures in the shop. I'd also consult with customers on custom gifts. In addition, I would like for my shop and the staff to be heavily involved with community projects and volunteer work. My shop would also have a small barista bar and baked goods for my customers (I'd put my mom in charge of that!). Someday this dream will come true. Oh, and the name of my shop would be by far the coolest. (I can't say it here - someone may steal my idea!) :)

  53. Travel more often with my hubby (who travels for work) is what I'd do! Used to travel for pure pleasure and now that our son is older, we'd love to show him the world and see more of it ourselves! Have always wanted to backpack through parts of Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.

  54. If I had the time, I'd produce the thousand and one documentaries I have in my head. Because I think they'd matter.

  56. If I had the time I would tour japan. I studied the language for 4 years, but never got the opportunity to go there and study. I still really want to, the food and culture is amazing and there's still so much to learn. But I'd need to brush up on the language, there's not a lot of use for japanese at culinary school...

  58. If I had the time and money, I'd get my parents an appartment in the city and country I live in... That way, they could see their granddaughter more often and clearer than on Skype... Have them around to babysit (even if it's just while I clean the house) wouldn't hurt either! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. If i had the time I would take a mechanic course so when my 20 yr old volvo station wagon decides to act up (which it does often) I would know more of what to do. Had my father still been alive i know he would have showed me ( he was a mechanic).

    ReplyDelete
  60. If I had more time, I'd do the things I pin on pinterest instead of just pinning them because SOMEDAY I'd like to do this craft or paint that picture or bake that dessert. Between 2 toddlers under 4, a full and part time job... our craft time has dwindled and my kiddos and I LOVE being creative. It would be nice to have more time to do family arts and crafts.

    ReplyDelete
  61. My very favorite place to be is in a museum working with their collections. If I had some extra time, I would be found volunteering in the deep, dark recesses of a museum's collection department.

  64. Hi Keiko, If I had the time I would take myself and my husband to Italy. We have never been there (and I, like you have never been out of the U.S.). The thing with me and my husband is that we have 6 young kids, so traveling just to the next town is hard. One day we will get there and have the time of our lives. But for now, it's keeping after all these kids. Enjoy Paris and I can't wait to read about it. Thank you! Shannon Shepard

  75. I need to get serious and make the time to plan my return to school. I worked hard and got my B.A. and M.S. in a short span of time, and I've just been living life as an "adult" as opposed to a "student" since then. I sincerely miss being a student, though. I want to go back and get my Ph.D in Clinical Psych so I can help bring mental illness issues to light. It's a topic very near and dear to me. It's still such a stigma in our society, yet it's so prevalent. I currently teach Psychology and spread the word on mental illness to my students, but I feel I could do so much more.

  77. I can feel you Keiko, I have never been outside the European borders and I can't see the time to visit USA and Australia. However I am a poor student and since I am a phd student that means that for the next 3 years I am very tight freedom-wise. I cannot get out of Scotland without my supervisors permission so all I have to do is wait for these years to pass, get my degree and then I am out!

It's also difficult to get the creative juices flowing after a long day of work.

  92. I'd love to have the time to pursue my passion, acting. I live in SF. I have a full time job and even though I make my own hours juggling that with my two kids, hubby, and life in general leaves me very little time to fully and to truly pursue my passion. To truly do that I need to be able to fly to LA or NYC and if I had the time I'd set up a few good meetings and auditions and go at it full force... but, ah, time. I lack it. *le sigh*

  93. If I had the time, I'd learn to cook - I mean REALLY cook, from scratch, all of my boyfriend's and my favorite comfort foods. It's always so nice to have a really satisfying, home-cooked meal and working full time, it's not always easy to accomplish.

  94. If I had the time, I would finally devote it to my apartment. I found my dream apartment a few months ago and during the weekends I try to devote part of that time to decorating and styling it, but I am still a long ways to go. Things like sewing curtains and pillows, making my platform bed (my mattress currently resides on the floor), and decorating my living space require more time. Slowly but surely these things are getting done. Is there any chance that the Coach watch will freeze time? Because that would be awesome!!

  98. My mom created so many amazing dresses and coats fir me when I was small. She also made curtains fir all of her Windows. If I had the time I would continue her legacy by getting a sewing machine and diving into sewing. I know I can do it, if I only had the time!

  99. I've also always wanted to go to Europe, especially London and Paris! Along with the more tourist-y places, I also want to really learn about the city through the little bakery on the corner or the outdoor markets- really understand and appreciate the culture.

  100. While I, too, have never been outside of the United States, and would absolutely love to travel, I have to say, if I had the extra time it would all be going towards my ultimate goal of going back to school. Due to some unforeseen circumstances in mine and my family's lives, this goal has been placed on hold until further notice. I know for certain that my place in the world is fighting for the greater good, upholding human rights, and breaking down structures of oppression. The next challenge is finding my own way to do these things. Whether I decide to pursue a law degree, or continue on into a career in academia--this is still something I need to decide. Now I just need to take care of these pesky undergrad loans...

    Anyway, thank you for the giveaway and good luck to everyone! Love your blog, of course!

  105. I would love to take my family on a cruise. My mother has never been and can't afford it. Time and money always seem to hold us back. Now that I'm married, I'm hoping my husband and I can save enough money to surprise my family with a cruise trip. The next hurdle would be finding a time everyone could go! :)

  106. Awesome! Congrats on the upcoming trip to Paris! Traveling is so amazing...I was lucky enough to get to travel around Europe as a teen, but that was almost half my life ago! I dream about going back as an adult, with my family and enjoying the things I couldn't as a 16 year old.

    This year I've actually undergone quite an emotional transformation. For most of my life, I've been the quiet kid - the one who HATES telling anyone about my birthday. I don't why - maybe I didn't like the attention? Maybe I thought I wasn't worthy of the good attention? I don't know, I should probably hire a hypnotherapist. But I never celebrated, never asked for anything, and just dreaded November 19th every year, as if it were Doomsday. But not this year. I'll be turning 28 - and I'm going to celebrate, dammit! If I had more time, I'd go all out and plan a party or a fun birthday trip even. I've realized that it's okay to let my friends and family celebrate me, and to celebrate myself. And I'm just happy to be alive another year!

  107. This is such an inspirational and meaningful giveaway! I am moving to Boston next year to attend law school, so I have about 7-8 months to get the rest of my crazy youth over with before growing up. One thing I would like to do before moving on to my realistic career path is actually go to Hollywood and attend just one audition! Whether it be a small role movie part or sitcom, whatever, just so I know I gave it a shot! It seems silly but that is what I would do if I had the time and funds.

    Thanks again for the fantastic giveaway!

  111. So many things I'd love to do if I had the time (and money!)! But I think first and foremost is go to Japan. I've never been outside of North America and have always had this love (or obsession?) with Japan since I was a kid. The culture, the food, the language..I love it all!

    Thanks for the giveaway and I'm excited for you for your trip to Paris! That'd be the second place I'd want to visit after Japan :)

  116. If I had time:
    Being a working mom is super tough! I have a 14 month old and a new baby boy set to arrive in January 2014. Not a day goes by when I'm at work that I am not wishing I could be spending more time with my little man. I am proud of juggling being a mom and a working professional, I feel I am setting a great example for my son as to what a strong woman is. However, I just want more time! More time with my son (and future son) and more time with my husband. We could have endless opportunities whether it be to culture our family through travel, visits and outings in our own historic city of Philadelphia or just spending the day at the park. I could just use more TIME! Some days feel long but I know how short the years are - how do I figure out how to slow the years down!

  117. I was so blessing to step in u.s.a when I was 19, and after few years of university and big dreaming, I also made it to the Big Apple, it's never easy. If I have time, one thing I would love to do is take off from work and go back to Orlando where my mother lives, and help her to start a small business. It's not that she never had her own business before, but she doesn't have one now, I just want to help her out and make her have a comfortable retire life (she's going to retire soon). My mom means a lot to me, I love her! ^-^

  118. If I had the time... I would love to learn multiple languages and cultures. I would to take the time to learn the basics of a language and then apply my knowledge by residing in a country where the language is spoken. I want to immerse myself in different cultures and explore my own--hopefully creating a hybrid which I will call my own culture. I want to learn more about the world, become more cultured, and gain perspective on life. I want to achieve this all before I have to settle down, find a "grown up job", and start paying off the lovely debt I have acquired over the years from college which is all gaining on me quickly. Only if I had the time...

  119. If I had time and extra $$ I would take my mom and sisters to Mexico City. I've grown up with my mom telling us stories of when she used to visit with her family and how much she loved seeing the pyramids. It always sounded so magical. We would also visit Frida Kahlo'd house/museum, Casa Azul and secretly wishing we had unibrows and wishing for a time machine. I would of course bring my camera and capture the old cathedrals, architecture, bright colors sprinkled throughout the city. But most importantly I would capture my mom, and my sisters. Every laugh and pensive moment hoping to keep them in my camera forever and wishing for time to stand still. That's what I would do if I had more time :)
    Thank you.

  124. I started a long distance relationship with a guy, who now has become VERY special to me... it's crazy how God, life and fate put two persons on the same path. He is in a wheelchair due a car accident long before we met. As for me, i had been single for a while and i never ever thought i would date someone in such condition, he is full of life, does pretty much anything! being on a wheelchair does not make a person less valuable! love him so much and i would love go to see him more often (he can not travel due his condition) if i only had the time!

  125. Sometimes small, mundane projects are important. I am eager (borderline desperate) to find time to make curtains for my five-year-old daughter's bedroom. We moved into our house nine months ago, and she picked out fabric with me four months ago... And still it sits in a corner, waiting to be cut and sewn. Life gets in the way. danielle@violetcreative.com

  126. When I think of what I would love to do but haven't had time to do I think "where do I start?". There literally never seems to be enough time to do everything. First and foremost I would love to do more VOLUNTEER work. I do make time to volunteer but I would love to do it more often and make sure my 3 year old son learns to have a giving attitude and helps to take care of those less fortunate. Plus, volunteering makes my soul feel good. Second, TRAVEL... of course. Third, finish my degree.... :)

    I have only lived in a suburb outside of Philadelphia and currently in Hamburg, PA which is pretty country for me. If I had the chance, money, or time to travel....I'd do it in a heartbeat.

  130. If I had the time, I'd take each of my kids on a solo vacation to their chosen destination. My husband and I plan to do this when each one graduates from high school and before they enter college or where ever life leads them. But just one last hoorah would be full of awesome. We have 7 kids, so we'd get to do this 7 times.

Just thinking of all the little pups, kitties and other animals out there needing shelter and love makes me want to quit my job and take them all in!

  136. If time were my personal luxury, I would open up a Cupcakery Cafe. My heart, nose, tongue and belly have always wanted this. Baking I adore, coffee- I could bathe in it. I can drink it all day, and I know several other souls who can as well. Cupcakes are the perfect size for a perfect afternoon snack or even a quick breakfast or dessert, and I know my shop would be positively lovely! On Saturdays, I think I would like the opportunity to dedicate the shop to those less fortunate and offer cupcakes and coffee for the minimal fee of conversation. There is so much to learn about people, especially those who have difficult paths. Everyone deserves sugar and coffee, and so yes, if I had time, THAT is exactly what I would do!

  138. Oh, you are going to adore Paris Keiko!! And I think it's even better that you get to go with friends who are completely comfortable and knowledgable when it comes to the city! If I had the time (and funds) I'd really love to adopt two cats into our family. My husband and I got married last year with every intention of adopting cats but then we both had job changes and ended up moving into the city instead of on the outskirts. Then as soon as we got settled in, it was time for our trip to London & Paris and I didn't want to adopt and then have to leave them! But I think the right time is approaching and the right kitties are out there waiting for us. Ever since I came into this world, I've been around animals so it's been hard not caring for at least one each day...

  139. Oh, so many things if I had the time! I think first on my list would be to visit Scandinavia. For some reason Sweden, Denmark and Norway have had a strong pull on my imagination for a while now. Maybe it's the juxtaposition with my surroundings in Southern California.

  145. I would learn how to crochet and speak Italian. My grandmother immigrated from Italy as a young girl, and had burns on her hand. She had to prove she was able to work despite this upon her arrival at immigration, so she showed them she could crochet.

As the first in my family to go to college here in the U.S., I've put nearly all of my time and effort towards earning a degree in journalism. I would take some time off from writing, time off to give my brain a break from studying, time off from a full-time job to just breathe: and visit all of the family I left behind in the Philippines when I was a baby. I'd remember what it cost my mother to bring me to the U.S. when I was young, and enjoy a little change in perspective. If I had the time...

  148. I've always wanted to go to England. I came very close to being able to visit this year until the group I was going with had to back out. The worst part was that they backed out a few days after my grandma passed away. That just poured salt on an already gapping wound. My family used to travel (albeit relatively close to home) all the time, and after her health started going downhill we stopped and I've missed those days of hitting the open road. I've made a promise to myself that, no matter what it takes, I'm going to England even if it means going by myself. Preferably to live there for a few months. I know it'll be difficult, and it'll be expensive, but there are things in life that are worth the blood, sweat and tears. It'd rent a flat in a town that wasn't too big or too small, and soak up the environment around me. I'd go to the Doctor Who and Harry Potter Experiences, visit the London Eye, taste the finer whiskeys, visit castles; I'd live and it would feel magical because I got myself there without the help of anyone else. It's not a dream, but a goal. When life gets too difficult, I plan a little more for that future trip and remind myself that none of the trivial issues of life will matter in comparison to the feeling of being free from it all. And in a perfect reality, my trip might just end up as a permanent move. If there's one thing I know, it's that you never know quite what the future has in store for us.

  150. If I had the time, meaning if I had the luxury of dropping my day job at an art gallery and my night job as a waitress, I would hop on a plane to Thessaloniki, Greece to visit my 93 year old grandmother. We speak on the phone everyday, more or less the same conversation involving the same few topics: my love life, my work life, and when i'm planning on visiting her. She was (and still is!) a self taught fashion designer and chef extrodinaire..a beautiful little lady who has taught me everything I know. We also share the same name :) I miss her dearly and I believe the best way to spend my time is with the people I love. Also, my mother and I have been talking about taking my grandmother to Paris for years. She has been wanting to go her entire life, especially to show off her Chanel bag which she finally received as a gift at the age of 91. We think that now is the time!! Enjoy the City of Lights, keep smiling and stay beautiful!

  167. For years I have been saying that one day I will travel to Germany to see where I was born. My father was in the US Army and I was born in Heidelberg Germany in a US Army Hospital. We moved back to the US when I was 2. I don't remember anything about Germany. When I was in my 20's I thought I'd be able to go because I was working as a travel agent and could fly for free, but I got laid off before I could go. Then when I got married my husband said we would go, but then we had kids and real life got in the way - and now we are divorced. I haven't taken a true vacation in 10 years due to lack of time and money. One day I would really love to go to Germany just to see where my life started. I'd like to connect with the ground I first learned to walk on.

  177. If I had the time, I would spend it focusing on me. The hustle and bustle of working, paying the bills, marking items off the good ol' to do list, and juggling the things that aren't on the to do list (but have to get done) often means that I am the last priority. It seems ironic, but if I had more time, I'd probably have the luxury of enjoying the present moment a bit more: spending quality time with friends close and far, doing more yoga, sleeping in (!!!), enjoying nature with my husband. I'd reconnect with the things I love, and recreate the to do list to include only those things. Sounds blissful just thinking about it!

  178. If I had the time, I'd fly to England right now and stay for a month! I lived there for a few months, and I always get homesick for England at this time of the year.

  179. I'd love to go to Paris too, but I'd also take the time to hire a car and explore the country side and parts of France that aren't in the travel brochure :)

  180. If I had time, or could even turn back time I would have traveled before going to school. I've always wanted to go to New York, or anywhere for that matter. I've lived in Texas my whole life and have never had the chance to really explore the world. I went to school and got myself into all this student loan debt and now I'm stuck working until I can finally pay it all off. I do not really have the extra cash to spend on a nice trip to Europe or New York City. I do try to save from time to time but then life happens and my savings go back to zero.

    Have fun on your well-deserved Paris trip!!!

  181. I would love to learn how to sew correctly! I have all of these inspirations clipped out of magazines but I can't sew that great so what I wish I could make never gets made. Just ask the fabric sitting in a box in my closet about that!

  183. I have been wanting to write and record music. I never have the time (well, intentionally) to sit down and excel in the guitar or piano, but vocally, I would love to pair it with an instrument. Music is my thang and yet, I never seem to prioritize it!

  184. If I had the time, I would finally get my driver's license! Any then, I would get a car. Of course that also requires money...
    Ironically, I am in Paris for the first time right now. You will love it!

  185. If I had the time, I would gather up my hiking gear, book a flight to Europe, and spend a month (or 2 ;) ) having the adventure of a lifetime on the Camino de Santiago. I dream of completing this well known pilgrimage which is said to offer peace and clarity while meeting people from all over the world along the way!

    Adventure on,

    <3 Elise

  187. I would love to have a few weeks to travel across the country and visit my best friend in Portland. Working on finishing my teaching degree, she's pregnant and 2,400 miles away! That trip is definitely at the top of my list.

  188. I would love to finish a blanket I've been crocheting for my bed at school. It's taken me months to get to the halfway point so hopefully it won't take much longer to finish it. *fingers crossed*

  190. If I have time, I would like to use it organizing my ideal wedding. I got married in a hurry without a ceremony. Even though it is very special and memorable, there is still a part of me craving for a wedding. (It is a bit sad when I think of the plain white dress I wore when I got married) Since I have another shot at wedding when I host my ceremony back in my hometown. I hope to do it right this time. With my friends and family, the music I like and of course a beautiful wedding dress!

  191. Something I haven't found time to do yet is have a baby! I got married at 24, and right afterward went back to school. Once I was done with my degree, my husband went back to get his second degree, so the timing hasn't been "right". I am turning 30 in January, and am realizing there is never really a "right" time. I just need to make time!
