One of the questions I have always hated being asked is, "Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?" I think to myself, 'Do you not know that it doesn't matter where I see myself? Who knows.. Alaska? Texas? Virgina? If the Army decides they need us in another country, then we will be there. No one can really make definitive plans for the future if you are in the military.' 

Well, after months and months of talking about our future with my better half, we finally figured out what we wanted to do and we actually have an answer to that 'where do you see yourself' question!



I can't believe that I am saying typing this, but after much thought and debate I have decided that I will soon be pursuing my degree in accounting! It's an exciting and scary thought all at once. I am happy to be finally continuing my education after 7+ years as a stay-at-home mom.

But let's be honest.. there aren't many people in this world busting down the doors of any college just dying to be an accountant. So why am I?

The reason is pretty simple. You all know that my husband and I are DIY fanatics. He has made many of my designs in my head come to life with some serious skill, power tools and lumber.

Our dream is to one day (post-Army life) own our own business and spend our time doing what we are passionate about. With my designs, vision and creativity and his crazy awesome skill level in woodworking, we think we make the perfect team. ;)

Of course, with any legit business comes the not-so-fun legal side. Getting my degree will allow me to handle all of our taxes and such in-house, which will be a big money-saver in the long run. I'm all about doing things the legal way to avoid any mess that can come later.  Getting my degree in accounting and Houston getting his degree in business will build the foundation for our soon-to-be dream business.

I am so thankful to have a husband who shares my dreams and who reassures me always that I have talent and the eye for design that he wants in his forever partner! ♥

Your turn. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10?
