60. Buy a bedroom set!!!

It took us a bit to finally get it, but we LOVE it! Especially since we saved for it so that we could pay cash-- so worth it though. Rick got a great deal on the bed, mattress, and dresser. Totally worth the wait! Now to finish decorating the bedroom...

52. Match 50% of my current savings and put it into savings

Rick and I have been in a bit of a savings kick lately. Especially with the fact that I won't be working much longer we've been trying more than ever to really get that nice cushion built up in our emergency fund. My last few paychecks I've managed to put any extra money after bills into savings, and Rick has also set up an automatic allotment from his paycheck to go into our savings. Because of these efforts we've not only matched what was in our there, but have exceeded that goal :)

I've always gotten that "high" from shopping, but who knew I could get it from saving too???

June's "Us" photo

Late again. I know I've been slacking on my blog, but I have a pretty good reason :) Hopefully I'll get back on track here soon.

For now this is June's "Us" photo from Rick's best friend's wedding which was on June 18th. We were so honored to be a part of Cy's special day. And Rick's best man speech was so touching. I'm so thankful he has such a close friend in Cy.
