All is good on the financial front!!!!

I have been away for a few days but I am back now and in full effect. I have been putting out a lot of money during this home buying process. I received an email from my real estate agent and the settlement date for the house is July 31. The only other thing I have to pay before settlement is a year of homeowners insurance, my broker got me a great quote for around $650.00. I am going to move my car insurance to this same carrier, and I pray for a discount on my coverage.

On Tuesday my boo and I went to see the site were we are going to have the wedding in a couple years. The place was absolutely beautiful and we decided that this place is definitely going to be the place were we are going to have the wedding. The catering coordinator was extremely nice and very helpful gave us quotes for 4 different days and times. The wedding and reception with all food, drinks, gratuities, and sales tax will cost us between $13000-15000. That gives us about $5000 to spend on other things. We have to put down a $2000.00 deposit within the next 45 days, so we will have to budget for that. We have our guest list (100 people) are ready and I will be using the to help me with budgeting and planning. I know some pay say its too soon to really start planning but hey C'est moi vie!!! (Its my life)

In other news:

In September I will be starting my debt snowball!!! I can't wait! I have been hearing a lot of negative things about what the economy is going to do and I am doing whatever I need to do to get out of debt asap!!

until next time, think prosperous thoughts!!!

I'm glad to hear that you have found a location for your wedding. I bet it is going to be beautiful.

I am also paying close attention to the economy and trying to save and budget accordingly. I wish I had started this when I first graduated, but better late than never! Be blessed.
