  • Wedding: November 2015

Well, we will be married soon. After that we have to move, and hopefully get our own house. We are still undecided on which town we are going to live in. We have about 5 to chose from, all rfrom 5-30 minutes from our jobs. I’d love to move jobs to our local hospital (Which is a big one) and I’m hoping it will happen. After that, make a baby! LOL i cannot wait for that part. I also want to keep going along on my debt. I tell people that my goal is to be a trophy wife when I retire, so I have to keep moving.

1234qwerty94:  Love this! … although, it is also terrifying.

2016: Wedding!

2017: Fence our damn backyard, build a decent deck. Have full 6 month emergency fund.

2018: Finish the basement. Start “maternity leave” fund. 

2019: Buy a cottage, or a lot to build a cottage on.

I also want to start my own business, but I’m not sure if that’s just a pipe dream yet.

2016: continue planning wedding, doing PhD, rising through the ranks at work for Fiance

2017: get married, move into our own 1 bedroom with no roommates woohoo! finish PhD, Start medical school in that order

2018-2020:finish med school. 

No TTC for me till after med school is done in 2021. I’ll still only be 28 so that’s a-okay with me 😁 can’t wait to enjoy 5-7 married years alone with my hubby.

By the end of 2016, Fiance and I will be married and settled into wherever we move for residency.

By the end of 2017, I will be in a senior/management position and will be able to go back to retirement savings.

2018-2020 will be status quo. Maybe we’ll look for a house, but that will be risky not knowing where Fiance will go after residency.

Kids will maybe be on the table 2020 or after, once I’m at least 30 and Fiance is done with residency/fellowship and we have some real income.

1234qwerty94:  We just celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary last Saturday!

2016: Have our first child (we’re on Month #2 of TTC). We are crossing our fingers that we can have children. Also, hopefully build a deck onto the house this spring/summer so we can eventually sell and get the most out of it. Also, after baby #1… hoping to look for a new job, and get DH on the bandwagon to look for a new one too.

2017: Start looking at a new house. We currently live in a twinhome, which is fine… but we’re getting to max capacity! Adding in a baby decreases our storage space that we use in our guest room. More job search if nothing in 2016.

2018: Buy/build a new home, and then maybe try for baby #2 if we can afford it and go that route after having Baby #1.

2019: Enjoy life as a family of 4 (or 3) in our new forever home.

I am hopeful that in the next 5 years I will grow myself and my professional connections to land in a leadership position at my workplace, that we will have saved up a sizeable downpayment for a home to purchase, we will get to travel more together, spend more time with our family and our dogs, set aside more for savings, and decide if we would like to have children. If so, we will be trying to have a little one.

From now until the wedding (August 16, 2016) our lives will be business as usual: work, wedding plan, soccer, etc.

We’ll be getting the puppy right after our wedding and once we’re back from our honeymoon. The first year after marriage, I’ll hopefully be upgrading to a better paying and less demanding job, we’ll move into a 2 bedroom, get a new car (that’s the first expensse after we get back from the honeymoon) and children exactly 12 monts after our wedding.

  • Wedding: December 2015

wedding in two months, so we will start at 2016:

2016-2018: pay off debts! (credit card and school loans, about 20k total).  add to savings when possible.  rejoice in no longer planning a wedding.  considering getting a master’s/licensure. quit smoking.  help Fiance move in job position (vertically or laterally).

2018-2019: TTC, if possible (complications run in the family).  Sell our current home, move either locally (in TN), or move West.  Begin adoption savings if TTC is not an option. Try to get something published. probably get a newer car.

2020: hopefully be settling in to a new home, in a new city, with a new baby.  

2021: beign new 5 year plan πŸ˜‰

2019: Finish med school and start residency

2020: Hopefully have a baby during my residency πŸ™‚
