    I so know how you feel Josie... My FI and I just bought our first place that we're actually going to move into together (finally me moving out of my parents house at 26 years of age!!!)... between having to make property taxes, fixing up the place, paying tuition for grad school, needing new appliances *and* attempting to save for a wedding I am feeling flat broke :P

      I feel your pain! Funny, how it may take forever to save but it takes just a few transactions to wonder where the funds went. Uuurrrggg!

      I had to postone my wedding for a year since we basically used most of our savings buying our house just before we got engaged and we needed to recover financially so we have been engaged for 18 months and it will be two and a half year when we get married. We refuse to get married on credit.

        Josie u are amazing! Thats great that u were able to save all that money! Just think that once you are all done with your pending obligations you can go back to saving!
        I know how it is to deal with a $ hungry ex. I get to deal with one myself!

          First of all, saving 12K is an amazing accomplishment and you should feel AWESOME that you did that...pat pat pat patting you on the back! Most people can't save 12 cents these days and are going into debt up to their eyeballs.

          Like Erin said, it's one of the hardest things about being a grown up to watch the money we save get spent....but you have a home now to start your new life with FI and you will hopefully have a great time at the weddings and bachelorette parties you're going to.

          Enjoy the times that you are having - you can always make more money, but you can't get the time back!

            Josie~that is so great that you saved up all that $$ for the house. That is what FI and I plan on doing when I start my teaching job this August. I have seen the pics of your house and it is GORGEOUS so all that hard earned $ paid off. Also, don't worry about all the things coming up. You will be just fine. Maybe cut back on some unnecessary stuff (out to eat, gym memberships, etc-I am just using myself as an example ) Have a great time at all your events. Also, I think the kegerator was worth it-I have seen one and those are so cool, plus your FI hearts it! XOXO Hang in there

              I'm with the other gals; good on you for being able to save that much to begin with! Be proud! It's not as if you just up and lost your mind on some random spending spree....life happened and is sucking up your fundage.

              The good thing is that you are obviously disciplined when you need to be. You can make things work out and you'll budget accordingly I'm sure. Keep the faith!
