3 Things I Would Love to Do When We Move

First of all, I would like to clarify that we are not moving.  Despite the fact that we are upside-down on a mortgage for a home that is way too small for a family of five, sometimes I like to think towards the distant future when we will be able to move to a larger home with a big fenced-in backyard.  Aside from the typical things that I would want for my family, such as each child having his or her own bedroom and having a separate playroom, I have a few things that are on my own personal wishlist . . .

1.  Adopt two dogs-  I miss having dogs so much.  Our house is too crowded right now to own dogs, especially since my husband has his heart set on owning ones from some of the larger breeds.

2.  Have a craft/sewing room- Right now, I have craft supplies tucked into nooks and crannies of every closet in the house almost.  I constantly worry that the children will tamper with the supplies I have sitting out for a project I am planning.  I also keep thinking that maybe I would sew more if my sewing machine was already set up at a table ready for me to use at anytime.  Right now, it is zipped up in its case and in the back of our closet.

3.  Build a really cool playhouse in the backyard- I know my husband is probably hoping for a large play structure, a trampoline, or a tree fort, but I would love to have a beautiful playhouse that all three of our children could enjoy.  If we had the space and the money, I would really like to build a small playhouse for each of the children . . . each one a different style to match the child's personality.  Can you just see it now? . . . a mini neighborhood of whimsical playhouses!  It would be such a fun family project to build, paint, and decorate the playhouses inside and out.  I bet our daughter would want hers to be pink.

I also thought about adding my own office to the list.  Right now, my desk is adjacent to my husband's and I rather enjoy that.  (Not sure if my husband feels the same way or not though.)  After having my desk next to his, I think I would feel lonely working in my own office.

What's on your wishlist for the future?


  1. i want a playhouse too! would be so awesome! maybe someday!

  2. I would love a larger kitchen. It is the biggest complaint I have about our house. There are lots of cabinets, but there is hardly any counter top space. If you want multiple people in the kitchen at once, you can forget it.

  3. @Liz: Our kitchen is the exact same way. If you want to open the oven door, there had better not be anyone else in the kitchen. :P

  4. I want to live in a tiny house (whole genre of house literally called "tiny houses") on the ocean with a view of the mountains.

    I don't need much...I would just love the views.

  5. I want a nice wrap around porch with a swing! Somewhere to sit outside on nice days would be great. I also want a large kitchen since I love to cook. And giant walk in closets for all my shoes!

  6. I would like to save enough to own a house. We have been renting most of our marriage and I am ready for something of my own.

    I want a large log home in a wooded area with at least 20 acres of land. I plan to have a mini farm with chickens, goats, and whatever other creatures need me at the time. I also want to have a nice garden so I can grow my own veggies.

  7. I would actually love to move to a smaller house to have less rooms to clean :lol
