In 5 years

Morning, friends. I hope y'all are doing well and Monday was kind to you yesterday. I am still feeling the aura of jet lag and mountain time so Monday was bit R-U-F-F for this lil pinkster. The plan is to have a recap for y'all this week, but today I'm pulling out a fun post from my drafts while I pull myself and other posts together. Oh, and I promise to get back to all of your comments today, scouts honor! Have a FABULOUS Tuesday, loves!

In five years...

... I'll be 37 [holycrap], so basically 40. That number is crazy to me, just crazy.

... Le Husband and I will be married for almost seven years, holy cow. 

... I hope I'll be a mom, of two, if possible. But if it's just one that would be wonderful too. Right now the thought of children of my own scares the glitter out of me, but I think by 37 I will be ready to be a mom.

... both of my sisters will be 30 which makes no sense. Weren't they just 15 and 17?

... a trip back to Alaska or Omaha will be in the works. 

... we will have a house and probably live in a different state.

... people will probably still think I'm in college.

... I will have a different job, one that hopefully inspires me.

... hopefully we will have at least one dog in our household.

... I might not still be blogging and that makes me sad. But, I think it will be the truth.

... we will have a new president.

... I will probably still love smores!

What are your thoughts on the next five years?

Don't say basically 40! You'll still be in your 30's darn it and enjoy every minute! It's crazy to think about what the next 5 years could hold!

omg in 5 years i'll be 45. i can't even.

and never say never about blogging..... as much as i sometimes want to quit, i always return. where else can i word vomit and people support me with it? LOL

Jess said...

I hope all of these come true for you, especially having kids by then and a job that inspires you. :)

Kay R. said...

I would do a post like this but thinking that far ahead gives me anxiety sometimes. I hope all your dreams come true though (so Disney of me to say that but I mean it).

Cory (playdates and prescriptions) said...

This is a great post. And lol about 37 being basically 40! I have absolutely NO idea what will occur in 5 years but I hope to just be enjoying life with the hubs/family and not being consumed with "growing" my family like we have been for almost a decade.

Jessica said...

Goodness. 5 years seems like such a long time...But I know that I will look back and think that it went so fast. In 5 years, B will have been a practicing doctor for over a year (no longer a resident), we will be living in another state (no idea where, but it definitely won't be GA), Caleb will be 7, Vivian will be 5 and there's a good chance there will be a third child in the mix. Lord help me! I can't imagine Caleb being that old. It literally makes my heart hurt!!! Back to reality:)

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

I love this post idea! 5 years seems so far away but it's not really - scary! Time flies!

Katie Elizabeth said...

This is such a fun idea! It's so hard to imagine where I'll be in 5 years - the past 5 years have held so many life changes! I know I'll always love s'mores though :)

Courtney B said...

This just made me realize that we will have our second babe (duh) and in May we celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary... I mean obviously I realized all of that before. But it just made me realize how far our family has come in 7 short years. Because really, looking back the time has FLOWN!
Living in a different state?! I wonder which one!

Rebecca Jo said...

I'll be WAY too close to 50 in 5 years... but I'll still be fabulous :)

Brianne said...

I love this. I often think, "at what point will I stop blogging? Ever?" I don't think when I started blogging I thought I'd still be doing it now. Especially because there were periods when I wouldn't blog for months. At this point I can't imagine not doing it, but also can't imagine blogging, married life, social life, work, AND kids... we'll see. I selfishly hope that you blog at least as long as I stick around blogland haha.

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

And "I will have met my blogging friend Jessi with a tri back to my stomping grounds of farmvegas" -you forgot to publish that one! hehe!

SO excited to read about the kid plan! Bring it on! Have a great day girl and get some rest! xo

Meg Taylor said...

Haha to the people still thinking you're in college, I think that will happen to me forever, too. Love this idea for a post!

Erin LFF said...

Fingers crossed that new job you LOVE brings you on over to Ohio ;) Hehe! Love this post- especially about the mini-pinkys!!

Claire | Fashion + Feathers said...

Great idea for a post - it really makes me stop and think! How much fun the next five years will be :) Don't say you won't be blogging :(

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

I love this idea! So many adventures to come!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

In 5 years, I'll be a month away from being 37 so I hear ya on 40 being a scary number! Children scare the glitter out of me too, but I know I want them at some point. 5 years from now will probably look so different than right now. And YES to s'mores.. always :-D

Meghan @ Me as Meghan said...

Five years into the future is scary to think about! It sounds like it is so far away but lately it feels like time is going by so fast that five years from now will most likely seem like next week haha! Which state would you want to move to?

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

oh no to blogging! no way jose, i do not accept it. we can all stop when we are 60. please?
5 years.. scary!! lets, see, i will be.. 33. JEEPERS. that's scary! i hope i will have one kid by then. i have a few more trips in the works that i want to get out of the way before kids. we might even be moving to australia by then!
love the idea of this post girl. fabulous. and you, so don't stop blogging!

Nadine Lynn said...

Ahhhhhh in five years I will about to be 37 too. NOOOOO I am not ready for that. Nope nope I am not. Haha! I love the idea of this post though.

christina @ the new mrs said...

This is such a fun idea - I can't wait to see where you'll be then! I'll be 31 and hopefully a mama too!

Robin said...

I will be 32 in five years. I am not really scared of it. We don't want to have children, but maybe I will be the cool aunt, if my older brother has improved his life by then.

Ashley @ Words About Waverly said...

This is so fun - and scary all at the same time!!!! You will be a great mama!!!

The Pink Growl said...

I love this idea for a post! although, in 5 years I'll be 35 so that scares the glitter out of me too! :)

Illegally Blonde said...

You and I will still be besties.... even if you don;t blog.

Sarah said...

Love this post, might have to steal :) And in 5 years I will be 40...yikes! I certainly don't feel that old.
