- Get a car. (Should be happening this month!)
- DF's job promotion (Which he got yesterday!)
- Have pretty much all baby things (diapers, wraps, a few neutral clothes, car seat, etc.)
- Save up for a doula
- Find a good midwife that will do home birth
- Get healthier (DF has quit smoking but I want him to stick to it, we both need to work out and eat better)
- Save up for all the vitamins and supplements I'll be taking while pregnant.
- Save up to move to a bigger house in Feb. 2014.

So much money to save!

I need and want to lose 80lbs but before we TTC I want to lose 40lbs.

Get a bigger house. We live in a SUPER small two bedroom single wide! This doesn't technically have to happen before we NTNP/TTC but would have to be done before the baby got here.

I need to be permanent full-time at my job....
I need to lose 50-60 lbs
Our dog needs some more manners training before we add to the family...
I want to paint the (finished) basement
I would like to build a fence in the backyard, get a new washer/dryer and install a central vacuum (okay, all of these could wait... but I have time!)
