From my lips to my boss's ears

This is hands down the most expensive month of my life ever! All of our big wedding balances are due within the next week including the cake, flowers, caterer (that bill scares me to my very core). The photographer balance was paid last week and fortunately the venue balance was taken care of in February. Not to mention we still need to purchase all the alcohol and million other little things. Oh and we can't forget our regular monthly bills that need to still be paid. Vomit.

I knew this all was coming but it still sucks to see the amount on the credit card bill increase and the amount in our wedding fund decrease. We are putting all the final payments on the credit card so that A. we can get the reward points and B. if there ends up being an issue with one of the vendors we have a better chance of getting our money back (fingers crossed this doesn't happen). I also have our wedding fund which I've been putting money into since we got engaged and will be able to pay off a large chunk of the credit card but ultimately there will still be a balance leftover. Not a HUGE one but a balance none the less. Just the way it worked out since Kristian unexpectedly became unemployed right before the wedding which we didn't count on.

With all that said there was a bit of good news today. Approximately two minutes after getting off the phone with K and lamenting about all the bills that are coming due my boss walked into my office and handed me a sizable bonus check for the quarter! I swear it's like she had been listening to our conversation and decided to ease some of my money woes with this bonus. Granted it won't pay off the rest of our wedding balances but it's a definite help! It's amazing how timing works sometimes.
