My loan processor just emailed my mortgage commitment letter. It looks like DH and I are actually going to be homeowners. Our interest rate is 6.125, which is pretty good. I am so excited. There are still a couple more things that need to be done before closing (which is scheduled for July 31), and I have been working like crazy to make sure there is money for us to decorate and buy furniture without putting things on credit cards. DH has started reading The Total Money Makeover and is really starting to understand why I want us to be debt free.
On a personal note DH isn't really my DH, he is my boyfriend/fiance. We actually live together(shacking up as my parents would say). Were getting married in August of 2010, and by that time we will both be debt free and will be able to pay cash for our summer wedding at the Glen Foerd Mansion.
I will try to post my tentative august budget by the end of the weekend ( I am a planner so i need to get things done early.
until next time, think prosperous thoughts
