Rainbows and kittens!

Today was a great day! A great day in ALL KINDS of ways. I mean, a great day that I want to share with you all from the ROOFTOP it’s so great!!!

You wanna know what has me tickled pink? What has me all red and rosy?

The orange Subaru is ALL OURS!!

Are you green with envy yet?

The title - it's official!

OK, sorry, I’ll stop with the color puns, I mean it. Anybody want a peanut?! DAH!!

OK, so how did we do it? Carl got his bonus (better late than never!) and we put every penny towards paying it off! We’ve been putting in extra when we could to pay it off early, and now we are proud owners of a (practically) new car! We were like little kids, giggling around the phone as Carl called the bank. We also did a happy dance around the car afterwards.

Happy Dance!!
Happy Dance!!

Since my diagnosis, we have taken a long hard look at our finances, and we decided to really try and become debt free. Something about a life-altering disease to really make you look at life differently. We are taking a snowball approach, so the money we WERE putting into the car, we will now be putting into the mortgage to pay IT off faster. I feel better knowing that we have a financial plan and my husband won’t be left high and dry. If I die knowing I’ve left him with a pile of bills, it’d make me incredibly…


It feels so good to have a little victory in your life every once in awhile! No more car payment, no more interest, and it’s only a 2013! Here’s to many more years and miles on the orange Subaru!

      Hey Renate! Yes, we are doing a modified version of Dave Ramsey’s snowball method. It definitely feels good knowing we’re working towards a goal! Hope you’re doing well!
