I was about 10 years old when I was sitting on the couch and watching; "I Love Lucy." That is when I thought; " I would Love to be as funny as she is!"
If there is ONE of many things you should know about me, it's how much I LOVE....did I say LOVE; YES! I LOVE, Lucille Ball.
I don't have all of the I Love Lucy series, but I grew up watching MANY of them. I thank my parents for introducing us kids to all of those series at such a YOUNG AGE!! It changed my view on a lot of things in life. I could be funny, ( and bold ) and still make people laugh.
Think about it. What draws you closer to that certain someone who you want to become? Is is their Laugh? Their Smile? Their Personality? Maybe you just want to look like them when you grow up? What if someone wants to be just like YOU when they grow up? Who knows? But, If I could be anyone, It would be Lucille Ball.
I would've Loved to live during the 50's time period. I love the dresses, I love the hair, I pretty much love how Lucille made it seem so elegant and rough around the edges all the same time. LOL!!
Who wouldn't want to cook in the kitchen with their hair all dolled up, Ruby Red lips, fake eye lashes, red nails, a string of pearls, and a cute outfit?
Ok; That may be a little far fetch, because I DO NOT like cooking ( that is another story in itself ), but after I put my polka dot shirt on, I thought; " This shirt reminds me of the 50's, I think I may want to play dress up!!! LOL
So; I Did!!!
And then I took a selfie of myself with a spoon!! LOL.. I know; Classic right!?? ( granted the picture is from 2017 , I still had fun doing this )
Getting back to my Idol. In 2015 I dressed up as Lucille Ball, from " I Love Lucy" for Halloween. I LOVED the outfit. It fit perfectly. It was almost as if I was on; "Say Yes to the Dress." LOL .. except, I was saying Yes in my head that everything fit, and worked out in my favor!!!
Granted my lips are not full like her's ( Which I envy!! My lips are more like rubber bands ) But, needless to say, I thought I played the part really well.
My girls LOVED it, and we went over to our Neighbors Jackie and Brian, to show them my Costume!!
It was a HIT!! LOL!!
My oldest daughter, Kayla, Loved my costume so much, that she wanted to dress up like I Love Lucy for her schools Halloween Party. Many of her friends asked who she was, because, many to all of them, didn't know who Lucy was.
Kayla would sometimes respond with; "How do you not know the I Love Lucy show? "
Again, How you are raised, plays a huge part. It's not a bad thing, we just all have different tastes in things!
The girls school had a contest for the best costume, and Kayla actually WON!!
It was so awesome and funny at the same time!
(( of course we reassured Keira, our second oldest, that her costume was amazing as well!! ))
When I tell you; " If I could be anyone, it would be Lucille Ball " I'm telling you that I love her laugh, her humor, how sneaky she is, her grace, how clumsy she can be, how hard she tries to be famous in many shows, and her look when she gets caught by Ricky from doing something wrong or breaking something!! LOL
I love how she plays with her fingers when she gets nervous as she approaches Ricky when he has called out her name! LOL.
Guys, I am dying over here as I replay many of her shows in my head. She ALWAYS makes me laugh. In reality, I want to be like her. I want to make more people laugh.
I want to remind everyone, that life doesn't have to be serious or even stressful. It can be fun, Life is a learning curve, we have to struggle, mess up so that we can do and be better. And I want to do better and reaching out and making an impact in peoples lives by laughing more.
Laugh with me for a minute; Remember that show when she wears that crazy head piece and it is so heavy it topples her over a couple of times, and yet, she is still trying to be graceful as she comes down the stairs with the other girls. LOL !!!! AND THEN... there is the chocolate scene with Ethel and they are shoving pieces in their mouths, hats and blouses. OR when she is crushing the grapes and gets frustrated at the woman telling her what to do that she makes a face and shakes her hand and hips at her.. LOL then Lucy ends up wrestling with the other woman in the big wodden tub and is stained with grape juice. LOL!! Now I feel like watching an I Love Lucy Show!!
All in all, if you could be anyone; Who would you be? Who do you look up too?
