Last night, Rich and I made our very last payment on our car!!!! We purchased our Jeep in 2009 and thought we would NEVER see the day when we were car payment free!! My husband drives an old 1969 Volkswagen Square back. He is in the process of re-furbishing it to it's original condition. We have never had a car payment before purchasing our Jeep. Every month, for the past three years we have watched our car loan go down. Well my friends, today is that day. We are one step closer to living a debt free life, because we now outright own both of our cars and we did it all on our own! Our goal is to never have a car payment again. That means buying used and saving the difference as the Duggars say. :)
. . now we just have to focus on getting some student loans paid off.
Although spring has sprung around here, today was a bit chilly down by the beach. Robbie and I spent most of the day in our pajamas baking bread and strawberry jam!
Did I tell you I got a bread maker??? I did! I have wanted one for years and the other day while thrift shopping, I found one!!!! A really nice one, from a very clean women's league thrift store! I have been a bread making fool!!
I am trying to make a loaf of bread every week. It tastes so much better than store bought and it's cheaper too!
|Here we are making bread this morning. I realized after the fact that I am not completely in the picture! haha I guess that's what happens when you take it yourself!|
|And here is my little helper folding laundry with me! He is going to make a GREAT hubby someday!|
