- Wedding: August 2012
Super quick post… I just need someone to be excited for me 🙂
From the point that we started on this adventure, we decided that we weren’t going to touch our savings and we weren’t going into debt. It just didn’t make sense for our lives. So, we paid all deposits and payments in cash(well… checks and debit card, lol). We would pay the deposit and make payments along the way. All of our final payments come to be about $6000, due by the end of this month. Affordable, but it makes things tight. No extras, generic brands, no eating out. But today I checked our account to do bills and see that there has been a $6300 direct deposit! It was FI’s christmas holiday pay! He works in the movie/entertainment industry and the projects pay holidays when the movie wraps. So we got $6300 out of nowhere!!! We were not expecting it at all! It feels so good to be able to live again! I cannot believe we did it. It’s all paid off!!!!!!! And we met our goal of not touching savings or going into debt. I am incredibly thankful.
Anyway… I just wanted to share this with people who can understand! Lol, wedding expenses suck! I’m so excited to be done with that episode of our lives and to move on to the fun part!!!
