Playing Catch-Up

So Brian and I are hoping to move sometime near the Spring. We figured to let me get settled in with the new job and save up a little more money and then move. We're not going to move far, we're actually thinking about moving back to the town we moved from. And lucky enough thats the same town I'm working in now. But we'll see.... If we find a place that's more reasonable then obviously we'll take that!!! Only time will tell i guess! I've had my eyes open and just taking a look and what's what so I'm a little more prepared! But though I love where I am now, it's getting to become way tooooo small for us! We want to be able to spread out a little more.
I'll keep you posted with that - it should be sometime between March and the end of April! Just in time for the nice weather!!!!!


We also got invited to go to Florida for a long weekend in March to stay with friends at their parent's vacation house. we were considering going because all we really would ned to pay for were plane tickets and food. But after talking about things I think we decided to save that money instead! I'd rather put that money towards the new place or something new for it like a TV or new couch, etc.. Something that will last longer then 3 night and four days... I mean don't get me wrong, I'd love to go for a getaway to Florida, but I did just go to Vegas... We're trying to be smarter.... And i think we made a good decision, a smart decision....

I know what you mean about passing up a trip to save $$! I really want to go to the beach - and my Brian's family is thinking of going in March/April (still TOO cold to get in the water though) and I would really hate to spend the money to go then and not even be able to get in the ocean...
I am thinking we will wait until late August or early September to go so we can at least enjoy the weather (and the rates go back down)!!!!!

Sounds like you made the right decision, though for me, I would go to Florida. But then again, we have never been on a vacation. How is your new job?

Anna said...

Sounds like the spring could be a very exciting time for you...I can't wait to read all about it!

Yayyy for a new place.
That will be super fun.

And umm...a trip to
Florida sounds grand.
Even if you did just go
to Vegas. Shhh. I won't
tell!

I want to move. I have been harassing my husband about moving. Some really nice houses are selling for dirt cheap right now!

I think passing up Florida would be good for right now. I am sure the opportunity will present itself again! I am trying to be smarter but it isn't always easy!

Yeah, I think you made a good call on saving the money too...Florida would be great, but like you said, it won't last as long as something like a new couch or something else like that. :)

I need to figure out what I'm going to do about my move...I just wish this darn economy would get better so I wouldn't be so nervous about it!

Matt said...

three nights in Florida would last a lifetime...

because memories are forever Dana.

Couch's only last for a couple of years. Then you have to throw it in the alley.

That's exciting that y'all are thinking of moving! I hope it works out. And kudos for being so smart with your money! I'm trying to do that, too!
