how could i forget to post this!?!

As you may know, we sold our house last month. Amazingly, we made a little bit of money. It was almost exactly how much was left on our student loans. time... WE PAID OFF ALLLLLLLL OF OUR STUDENT LOANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF DEBT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHH!!

It doesn't even seem real, that after being so focused on paying off all our debt, it's actually happened. All the money we make now is OURS. We are planning on staying in line with Dave Ramsey's financial steps, so we can feel more secure about the future. I'm really glad that we have come this far at such a [relatively] young age, and it makes me feel more comfortable with my goal of staying at home with my chillun.

Cheers to the future! And yay for crossing that resolution off my list :)

ps: I really hope this doesn't come off as braggy or boastful, because I don't mean it to be that way at all. This was just a huge goal of ours, and I am so happy we've actually achieved it. It was such a blessing that we were able to sell and make money on our house, and we are so grateful for that. And thanks to everyone for cheering us on through this endeavor, we appreciate it :)

Shan'tel, I think I'll do another blog post on how we did it, that will include tips and stuff...just because a few people have asked us, so maybe it will be helpful :)

Jen--I actually did write him on his website! I don't know if he'll ever see it, because I'm sure a lot of people contact him, but it was still fun. And now we are living in Cedar City for work.
