I must admit...

I have a confession to make.

My credit card is up to $679.98.

Yes, I used my credit card. 

It was very hard not to with the move and not knowing when we were to be employed again. Thankfully, my husband got employed right away and though I got offered a job, the hours and pay were no where near what we needed it to be, so I am still on the job hunt. Luckily, I just got offered a job yesterday, so prayers for that guys! Now we are waiting on our tax return, final paycheck from the military, and the moving allowance they will re-reimburse us for. From the portion we decided that I will get from all of that, I am going to make a good payment on my credit card and continue paying down my debt! I still plan to be debt free by June of 2013, or hopefully sooner!

Now to update my debt trackers. 
Do you have any personal finance confessions?

We just got our internet back on. Whoo whee! It has been awhile since I've been able to log on. I hope all of you are well! 

The move went well, we're settled in now. Pennsylvania is cold. Haha, but we all knew that.

The food is AMAZING! Authentic Italian cooking! I'm in heaven. <3

I have been staying on top of studying Italian and it's wonderful because my sister is studying it as well, so we keep each other motivated.

I'm learning the area and it is beautiful. There is a lot of old Gothic architecture and vines that have grown all along the walls of these historic buildings. Beautiful. 

I've been reading a lot, just finished a book in fact. Now to start another one.

And I just started scrap booking again. I have a drawer full of pictures that has just grown over the years. It's time to get them all together! I bought a hot-pink (of course :p) scrap book album yesterday and I'm hooked! it's so great to go through all the memories and good times that God had blessed me with, not to mention all the wonderful people He's brought along my path. God is so good.

I found a good church,but I am still looking around.

And last but not least, I have completed ALL of my college applications, so wish me luck to hear back from them! 

How have you all been?
