Really starting to settle here

In Pensacola I mean. We have lived here for almost a year and I like it now. I feel like I have a good group of friends and I have now found some mommy friends with babies the same age as Roman. Which I think is important. I want Roman to grow up around other kids and have friends. I want him to be able to socialize starting at a young age. He is really at a age now where he enjoys other kids....of any age. We could be walking around a store and he is quiet till he sees another baby or kid and he will start bouncing up and down wanting them to come and play with him. I love seeing how excited he gets. He has lots of little friends in the daycare at the gym we go to. Malachi and I are such little creepers....there is a tv showing the daycare in the gym and we will just stand there watching Roman play with the other kids. It is so cute!
But yea...Pensacola is pretty nice. It is not where I want to live forever but we have made this place home. We have a great church with a wonderful church family, Malachi has a good job, Roman and I have made some good friends, and there is plenty to do here (but anywhere has more stuff to do than Niceville!) So we have about three more years here and then we are off to where ever Malachi gets into dental school!

That has to be our favorite word at the moment. There are many things we would like to do someday. There are many things we would like to have someday. We are just not at a position to have them right now. Don't get me wrong...we love our lives. We have so much love in our household it is insane, we all have our health, and Malachi has a job with benefits. So we don't need anything at the moment...although there are many things we would like. For example, I would love to have the money to take some online photography classes or I would love to be able to make my house feel more like a home...my home. Right now all the furniture we have was given to us for free. It is all sturdy and great stuff...but none of it is what I would have picked out. I would like to decorate my whole house the way I want to. I would love to get new towels that aren't stained, or a different comforter that isn't starting to turn a weird color, I would love to get cute living room furniture, I would love a dresser that has drawers that actually work...and things like that. But our money is going to more important places right now like bills, rent, food, and baby stuff. Which is all VERY important. And I mean...I could get a credit card and buy a bunch of stuff I would like but Malachi and I have sworn that we would never go into debt. Right now the only thing we are having to pay off is our car and that was a necessity. But other than that....we have no debt. And we are going to keep it that way. I have to say that I'm excited that one of our 'someday's is going to come true! We are going on our honeymoon in December. We are going to Disney World! I am SO excited. My parents are going to come stay with Roman and Malachi and I get a whole week of enjoying each other. I am so excited. So one 'someday' is checked off our list! Do you have any 'someday' wishes you are looking forward to?
