No, this is not a new occurrence, I've been this way for a while. I'm screaming it now because the next time I blog I will have a loan.
Mr. Right and I purchased 5.55 acres of land the weekend after our wedding. Its gorgeous - just perfect for that farmhouse he and I want some day. And the best part? It was exactly what we wanted to pay for it. Not $1K less or more.
I'm a little nervous, I've never owed this much to anyone before. (We're currently renting our beautiful home from his parents.) We're hoping to have it paid off in about 5 years so that we can start to build.
Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, as they say!
