Remember how excited I was for this past weekend to be filled with NOTHING?! Well somehow, Caleb and I changed our minds and decided to use this (once in a blue moon) free weekend to our advantage. Friday evening was pretty lazy, I'll be the first to admit that...but Saturday? Oh boy.
Saturday was full of early alarm clocks...quick showers... and all the adult things.
We made a trip to my credit union, and finally made my individual checking a JOINT CHECKING! That's right y'all, we SHARE a bank account (finally) and clearly that caused for an excited (and devious) faced selfie.
Then, we went to Caleb's bank to close his checking and open up an official 'emergency savings' account to put our emergency cash in...so we aren't tempted to touch our cash and hit that 'transfer' button like my bank makes it so easy too.
After those super adult-like things were finally done we thought "why not keep the streak going!?" ...so we went car shopping. I'm just kidding, it wasn't a total spur of the moment thought. We'd actually been thinking of buying a used car for a while (my poor car is so old and unsafe the mechanic actually told me to stop driving it). But we really did look for HOURS, and with not much luck and a few rude car salesmen later...were feeling a little discouraged by midday, so we decided to grab lunch, and head home to wait for the Bucks vs UC game. After a quick hour of relaxing and internet surfing, I hear Caleb yell "UM! GET IN HERE!" to see an adorable little silver car online at an amazing price with hardly any miles on it for sale at a Subaru Dealership only 25 minutes away. I truly thought it was too good to be true, but we got our shoes on and hit the road to see it for ourselves.
Would you believe if I told you the car was still there, with only 18K miles on it, at an incredible price?! We took that beauty for a test drive, and fell in love. So we talked them down and were able to drive that baby home. GUYS! We bought our first (used) car as a married couple! WOOHOO!
Once we got home, we decided to take our baby for another ride around town, to pick up snacks. Did I mention I've NEVER hard a car with air conditioning?! Yeah...NEVER!
Sunday was full of deep cleaning (like crazy), laundry, and watching football. I missed my Bengals since its their Bye week but I have to admit it was nice not having to worry about a win or loss! We had a night of worship at church and that's where we finally got a picture (together) with our new baby!
Also? We made a big payment towards our debt this month (again)...and I realize I never blogged about our August budget/payoff/etc...so I'll have to do that later this week! Hope you all had a great weekend!!
