Ordered part one of the ladies' surprise tonight. I feel really good about it!! :)
Also, along the same lines: Jeff and I are taking Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey. Tonight, my purchase was made on amazon.com and for the first time EVER I used my debit card (with the VISA logo on it) to pay for my order. My money. No more debt for me! Feels great!
Oh, and the wedding registries are complete! Yahoo!!!!!!!
Jeff and I agreed on every single item, which is pretty incredible. There are some big ticket items on there, but the plan is to have money set aside by the time we're married that we will have the money to purchase what we need from what is left on the registries.

One last thing- Jeff and I started a new book together that my mom got for us. Gary Chapman's "Things I Wished I'd Known Before I Got Married". Fun little chapters with discussion questions afterward. This is the third premarriage book we're working through now... we also did "Ten Great Dates Before You Say I Do" and "Preparing for Marriage". I love having a man that wants to grow a deeper relationship with me. Praise God!!!
