@Firemansgirl:  well I’ve been married for a while but my 5 year plan is to move into a bigger house and maybe go overseas but that’s probably more 10 years away for us:(( I’m kind of getting impatient:((((

Give birth to our first child, and pop out another one!

DH is working on his MASSIVE promotion, and than we’ll buy a house!

@Holly77:  I can’t believe how fast pregnancy is going by! I’m going to be a mess when s/he turns 1, and I’m like “Didn’t I just push you out yesterday?”

We have a lot of travel goals! We just bought a home in Nov otherwise that’d be on here too!

1. Go to Antarctica (trip booked for January!)

2. African safari (maybe 2 years from now? Need to save up vacation time and $$)

3. Have a baby (3-4 years from now).

On the super uber dream list: move to New Zealand. Not sure if we’ll take the plunge, but I think we could get visas, and I would love to have a kid there.

@Firemansgirl:  in five years, I would like to have gone back to school for cosmetology and gotten a job as a stylist/makeup artist and have a child. A house would be nice too!

Right now our plans are :

[1] for my partner to finish grad school (1 year away!!!!), then find a job he likes. He’ll have to pass his boards at some point after he finishes school. 

[2] partner to settle into a job he enjoys. I suspect the first year will be kind of rough.

[3] re-do our bathroom. This is slightly more of a priority for me just b/c I really hate our bathroom. I’m guessing this is 3 years away

[4] rip up the carpet on our first floor and have my step dad (and probably his friend) help me re-finish the floors. I want to do this next year

[5] decide what to do about kids. I will be high risk (should I choose to conceive, and we don’t even know IF I can) and would have to go off of the majority of meds I’m on now. We may look into being foster parents

[6] get some more travel in! We will likely go to Scotland and England next summer

[7] possibly consider a summer house at some point in the next 5 years.
