I'm back and married!

May 31st, 2016 at 12:48 pm

Back to work, back to reality, back to being focused on finances. The wedding was wonderful. We actually had tons of little things go wrong, but my bridesmaids were great about keeping things hidden from me. DH (yay!!) was sick all morning, but he also managed to keep that from me. We did a first look which was my favorite part of the day. I was all nerves and emotions and the second I saw him, I was just happy. We got each other gifts too, and it turns out they were perfect complementary gifts (yet another indication that we belong together). For those who are familiar with How I Met Your Mother, I gave him a small blue french horn, and he gave me the yellow umbrella. I didn't get to enjoy any of the delicious food we had, and I had maybe half a drink the whole day. You really do get pulled in so many different directions. One other big highlight was DH's great-uncle gifting us some ceremonial Navajo blankets. They were absolutely beautiful.

Here's some pictures (hopefully it works...I don't do pictures often...):

In other financial news, I did pay off my smallest credit card, and we've decided to put most of our wedding gifts to savings. So our current savings is now $3000. As I get back into the swing of things, I plan to track debt and savings here. Our goal is 15000 by next summer to buy a house, and no consumer debt by the end of the year.

    Gah! I love it all, but I REALLY love the Star Wars cake. We had a han solo/princess leia on our wedding cake.

    Thanks everyone!

    Thriftorama, DH loved the star wars cake. Those figurines were part of a collectible set and he's so excited to display them. My favorite part was when the death star (made of rice krispie treats) fell off the cake. Apparently the force was with us that day!
