Got my Capital One credit card paid off this month. (Again) My only current CC debt is my interest free (until May) Household bank account, which has a balance of about $600 right now. My car loan is down to about $3500. Haven't touched the savings accounts for the wedding yet.

Right now I'm currently reading The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner

So far it is very simple, but powerful. I haven't read any of David Bach's other books, but have browse through them at the store. Everyone raves about their simplicity and easy to follow prose. This book is also along those lines.

I'll provide a full review once I've finished it.

Time Flies

I apologize (again) for the lapse in posting. Things like a wedding being held on the opposite coast seem to take a lot of time to arrange.

We're finding the expenses adding up, as we knew they would. We're trying our best to keep the prices low, and to use the credit cards sparingly. However, it's easier said than done. Darcy is keeping a spreadsheet of all wedding related expenses, and it's staggering how quick it adds up.

I've been able to keep up with the savings programs at ING and VirtualBank, $25 goes each week to each account. I'm also doing $100 month to my Sharebuilder account, and spent an extra $100 to pick up some Google shares as they have dropped after the release of Google video. I feel pretty confident that the stock will perform better in the future.

Some of the expenses for the wedding will come this weekend as we fly to the West coast this weekend to get the marriage license, and to confirm our wedding location and interview the photographer. It will be a whirlwind four days.
