If we could...

These last couple weeks have been good for my soul. As much as I love serving with my church, Sports Camp week took a lot out of me, but makes me even more thankful for the time at home with Caleb that I do get!

We took a long walk around our neighborhood the other night after dinner, and talked about the most random things. Caleb and I constantly talk about the future, we talk about things we "wish we could do/see", etc. I feel the list is so long that I wanted to make a post out of it...

If we could... {we would}

...move to Hilton Head. That place has a huge piece of our hearts. I've spent so many of my childhood summers there, we got engaged there, and have been back countless times. We long for the day we own a property/land down there! We technically COULD move as young adults, but I know we'd miss our friends/family so much!

...eat vanilla moon pies and donuts for breakfast every day. I suppose I COULD do this, but I don't really want to be 400+lbs.

...hang out with this sweet girl more. It's been months since I've seen her and I could almost cry I miss her so!

...eat crab legs for dinner every night. Well, maybe not Caleb - but I certainly would!

...work less, and play more!

...sell our current cameras and upgrade again. Photography is an expensive hobby/job, friends!

...go to fancy dinners more often (but we're both cheap).

...travel to a new state or country every year!

...lay out all summer long instead of sitting at our desk jobs.

...have a massage every month. We've never had one, I KNOW. Cue the tears.

...give, give, give!! We can't wait for the day we are in a better position to bless others like crazy.

...spend more time at festivals/carnivals with friends. Cheap, fair food is the best!

...run on only 4 hours of sleep.

...also, naturally be considered "morning people". It's not that we're grumpy come 7AM, but we'd both love to sleep in and wake up on our own timing (who wouldn't, though!?)!!

...be more adventurous! We wish we had more time for stuff like this!

Some of these things we absolutely CAN make happen, we just have to put our minds to them, or be a little more patient. So on days like today, where I just want to be outside, I remember why Caleb and I are working hard -- to set ourselves up for better futures! So we can adventure more later, and so we can give like crazy! Speaking of - Caleb and I are still rocking our debt-free plan and we're in the thick of it. It's hard, but with every payment we make, we are one step closer to where we want to be! I may just post a progress report soon!

Happy Wednesday friends!

  2. This is a great list to look at and like you said some of the things you can do now and some are for the future. I fully believe in your work ethic and your plan for the future, you've got this lady.

    Check groupon/living social for deals on massages. I used one once and found the BEST place for massages, at really good prices.

  3. We've never had massages either. People look at us like we're crazy!

    You could also totally do your visit a new state every so often, just keep checking for deals and don't let yourself talk yourself out of it!!

  4. YES. As much as I like sleeping, I wish I had more hours in the day to get stuff done. 4 hours would free up so much more time for me to do stuff around the house lol!

  9. KC and I naturally wake up at 6 or 7 no matter what.... 730 is a sleep in lol. But, I am bouncy and happy to be up, KC is grumpy until he's had an hour or two to wake up, so I don't know if we are technically morning people ;) I get up earlier to go to the gym during the week and I'm always cranky when an alarm wakes me, no matter the time. and we are the same with the fancy dinners! we literally do this: oh we should go there, even though it's expensive, it will be good for us..... well, but we could do this instead and save this and spend it on this instead... haha! it just seems silly to 'waste' money like that.
