Before the BUMP!

So after reading Kelly's Blog at Today Was A Fairytale and 
Cheltee at something about You and Me . I found several posts on their blogs that I can relate to 100% since they are also newlyweds. 

The first post being Before the Bump!

That question that follows "Congratulations on getting Married!" You may ask what that question is? 

Well it is "When are you having a BABY?"


"Are you pregnant YET?"


We have been married for 7 months and together for 2 years on the day we got married. I am turning 24 (March 10th) and he will be 29 on August 16th. We just want to be US for right now. Don't get me wrong I want to be a mom. But I don't want to be one right NOW. 
We have a 10 month old puppy, I am always saying "She is our practice child". 

So with out further ado here is my "Before the Bump" list:

Lose Weight
I have had a life long battle with my weight. I am proud to say/brag that I have lost 8.5LBS since January 1st, 2013. You can read about that in this post. I am still 238.5 lbs, I want to be 175 before I even think about having a baby. I don't want to add baby weight on top of the weight I already have. 

 Save Money
I want to have a nest EGG! I want some money set aside for our future...

Reduce Our Debt
 I want Dan's car to be paid off. I want to pay off loans and pay down our credit card debt.

Hubby & Wifey Time
I want us to be able to spend time together without the worry of

 "Do we have to pick up the kids?"

 "Can we get a babysitter?" 

I want to be able to go on a few more vacations together and see the sites. I want to go to Montana to see the wild Mustangs,  New York City, Montreal and I'm sure there are a few more. I want to be able to get in a few more romantic getaways.

Don't get me wrong I want kids, I just want to be a little more prepared to have them. I want to enjoy my pregnancy, not worry about the impact on our financials.

Okay other newlywed bloggers whats on your "Before the Bump" List?
