That's what I want....

Last night Lovey asked me what I wanted. I wanted a cheeseburger (as yooj), but he meant "ultimately, in the grand scheme of things". "A cheeseburger" I replied. (Ha! Just kidding!) This is what I really said, "I don't know. I'll just go with the flow." He didn't like that answer cause Lovey is a man of masterful plans (mostly involving moving to the mountains and having kids). So he told me I needed to write down ("in detail") what I wanted.  So here I go. My list may not be ambitious or noble, but it's what I want...

 1. I want to live a life that is pleasing to God.
2. I want to be able to support my parents in their old age (ie want them to live with me)
3. I want a smallish home on a big property.
4. I want to plant vegetables, fruit, grains on said property (and be able to live off the land, in time).
5. I want to own cows, goats, turkeys, chickens, and a couple of dogs.
6. I want lots of babies...Okay. Okay.. More than 2, less than 6.

There is more...but that's all I can come up with now..

PS.Uh...When did I become Laura Ingalls Wilder?????!
PPS. I think this will all take a while, so stay tuned for more posts like this.. I can't figure this stuff out in a day, right?


  1. Love the list! My husband is the same way as your lovey.PLAN. EVERYTHING! Sounds like you'll be quite the domestic mama! Love it:)

  2. I like your new header! & please let me live on your farm in a teepee?? Okay...It is settled, you are going to let me! I love animals and fresh garden food! I want a HUGE garden some day with yummy fruit. Sounds like a plan, or we could live next to each other on SEPARATE farms?? You know you want to. Okay so I am a weirdo.. But the kids thing, I want more than 2 less than 6 too! BUT if my pregnancies suck 2 might be okay ;) have a great day!

  3. I love your list and I love that you want to have lots of babies because so do I. I also love that you look way cute in this picture and I also love that you never forget what's most important. GOD.

  4. what a wonderful list (and cute picture!) i love that you want to take care of your folks in their old age, that's the way it should be. and then your kids will grow up learning things from them that would have been lost.

  5. Geez Louise! Your new header is sweet! I'm extremely impressed!
    And I love you list. Perfect. God. Family. Babies. Life. Just perfect.
    You could move down here and we could both buy farms close. Steven would love to live exactly like that! We buy organic and natural so it is his dream to become independent of a grocery store.
    You will have to tell me what you Lovey thought of your list! :)
