My sister, brother and me at his graduation party
Financially speaking, the past few weeks have been a mixture of success and failure.
Success: I paid off my Saks Fifth Avenue store card. Take that, $2880 balance!
Failure: I did too much shopping the past couple of weeks (including some charging). Yes, I may have surrendered all of my cards to my fiance (hah! I can say that now), but a couple of them ended up back in my possession due to reasons both legitimate and mildly sketchy. Whatever. I'm handing them back over and having him hide them somewhere new.
Now I'm on to tackling my Saks Mastercard. Originally I intended on paying my Nordstrom card off before it, but I like the idea of eliminating another card with a higher balance. The goal is to have both the Saks Mastercard and the Nordstrom card completely paid off by the middle of August.
I think I can, I think I can...
On a side note, I'll post some pictures and details about our engagement soon. It feels rad that my living situation/life is no longer a sham, but I'm pretty much the antithesis to most brides-to-be. Ideally, I'd like to forgo the whole dog and pony show for something MUCH smaller (court house wedding, anyone?), but I don't think that's how this will all shake out. Fortunately we have until summer and the winding down of his research until we begin making any decisions.
That's all I have for today. :)
