Weekend $$ Plans?
Thu, 02-02-2012 - 10:30am

Its Thursday.

We are FINALLY taking a two night trip to the states this weekend. We didn't do anything after we got married in June because of all those dental expenses and getting satellite(set up and dish fees). It will be all in cash, the hotel is a good price, 2 other couples are coming with us, and I am sooooooo looking forward it! Just getting away and having FUN!

Oh, AND, I'm pregnant! I know, I know...but we have been planning this for soooo long! We are sooooo happy. (Getting baby stuff this weekend at good prices, all money saved in cash!) . July 15th is my due date. We are going down to one salary, and because the car payment is done in June(luck I know) we will be just fine with that(I have a had a baby budget in the works for a year now). I will do all my accounting at home and all my ordering at home online and just treat my staff as my salary to make up the difference because we won't need my salary. Our only consumer debt will our truck(that is worth more than we owe) , the payment which is reasonable fits in our budget, and we will owe $13,222. Very excited!! *Giggle*

But of course post your comments, concerns ect and I will try to answer all of them.

OMG, Karen, congratulations! I'm tickled pink and I'm hoping this one is a girl! It's great that you already have a budget worked out!

Quiet weekend for me. DD and I booked Monday off work to give ourselves a long weekend (we're suffering from the winter blues and needed a break). Not much planned, except for a whole lot of cooking so that we can stock the freezer. Tonight we're going out for Pho Ba just to kick-start our long weekend.

CONGRATS Karen!! What exciting news!!! It sounds like a great weekend planned!

Mine is to relax, catch up on housework and laundry and watch superbowl. I have some friends coming over on Sunday so it should be fun!
