Predicting the Future

Okay, so I know I've been slacking. But I promise, one of these days I'll finish this challenge!

I figured for each year, I would give you the actual year (to help make you feel old), how old the hubby and I will both be (to help make us feel old), and some of the things we hope to accomplish by that time. 


5 Years From Now.....

The year will be 2017. I'll be 28 years old, and Dan will be 29. We'll be celebrating 12 years together, and 6 years of marriage.

  • Debt free (everything except the house)
  • Living in/owning our first house
  • Hubby will have finished paramedic school
  • First baby born, maybe number 2 (or even 3) on the way
  • Not sure if I'll be a stay at home mom or still working in the classroom
  • HAPPY!

10 Years From Now....

The year will be 2022. I'll be 33 years old, and Dan will be 34. We'll be celebrating 17 years together, and 12 years of marriage.

  • Raising our 2-3 children
  • House paid off
  • Maybe upgrade to a bigger/better house and rent out previous house
  • Graduating with my master's degree
  • HAPPY!

15 Years From Now.....

The year will be 2027. I'll be 38 years old, and Dan will be 39. We'll be celebrating 22 years together, and 17 years of marriage.

  • Teaching our oldest child how to drive
  • Deciding if teaching is what I want to do until I retire, or if I want to seek a new career path
  • Now that we're debt free and had some years to save, perhaps we'll start to travel more and hit up some places on our travel bucket list.
  • HAPPY!

I really have no idea what the future holds for us. Sure, I can dream. But I also know that God has his own plan, and sometimes my plans aren't the same as His. So, even though I love to dream about what the future looks like, I know that regardless of what it actually turns out to be, we'll both be HAPPY!

So, if you look into your crystal ball, what do you see in your future?
