I wish...

There are an awful lot of things on my wishlist these days. If only we could stumble on a large sum of money....
I would buy one of these. I borrowed one from my friend and it makes EVERYTHING easier in the kitchen. I can whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies in 15 minutes with one of these!
I really wanted one of these that The Pioneer Woman gave away. But alas, I did not win.
I want a privacy put up so we can enjoy ourselves in our backyard. Did you know it costs a good $3300 to have one installed? Jeez! And it will cost us at least $2000 to do it ourselves. Sigh...
And when we have a fence, we can finally get one of these guys. It doesn't matter what kind. Jake wants a dog he can play fetch with and look manly besides. We want to adopt a dog that is about a year old.
And in that backyard I would love this lovely patio set from Sam's Club. It has a wonderful lazy susan and 6 chairs.


And I so badly would love to have a closet full of clothes. Clothes that fit me well, are stylish, fun and comfortable. My walk-in closet looks pathetically empty.
I would love this bedroom set. We currently have hand-me-down dressers that are small and the drawers don't work well. And we have no headboard, just the frame and matresses.


But forget all of that stuff. What I want more than anything in this world...
But as it turns out, these aren't as easy to come by as you would think! EVERYWHERE I look, there are pregnant woman. Everywhere, except my own mirror...

It's going to happen Tricia :) I know trying and coming up "-" every month can be discouraging, but when it does come up "+" you will FREAK OUT, lol. Enjoy the trying ;) It's odd to me how the ones that want babies take awhile to get pregnant and the ones that shouldn't get pregnant every 0.9 seconds.

It's so exciting that you guys are "trying!"

It's hard to remember that there is a time and a place for everything. I want to be in a bigger house now and have nice things, but I have to remind myself that we are just starting out. They will come with time and smart investments. :)

Hang in there, my friend! If you need to borrow a kid or a dog in the meanwhile, I'm your gal, hahahahahaha. No really, enjoy the time you still have as just the two of you because once a baby arrives, those days are long gone...:)

I understand, 'I wish' thinking. I wish I had a full-time job, benefits, normal hours of work. Last week Father reminded me again these things are not essential for me to follow Him. Instead of relying on $$ I need to rely on Him. Since returning to the states I have fallen into the American thinking. I need to question myself when I wish for things, 'Will these things help me follow Jesus?'
