We used to dream about the day we paid off our house. We always knew we wanted to celebrate in style, and that’s exactly what we did! We documented this day that was so special to us – I hope you enjoy!
First, we went into the bank to turn in our final payment. We were super excited if you can’t tell by the photos. (Nerd alert!)
When we walked out of the bank, I was skipping and jumping through the parking lot with excitement! A random parking-lot guy looked over at us and yelled, “What are they doing? Giving away money in there?” It definitely gave us a good laugh!
Next, we went to Panera, followed by a trip to the movies. Usually when we go to Panera, we split something and get water. This time, we got exactly what we wanted!
At the movies, we ordered a large popcorn and a large drink . (Hello free refills!) Usually we sneak snacks and water bottles into the theater in my purse to save money. This was definitely a big splurge for us! (I may or may not have made my self sick with popcorn. It was awesome.)
We were thrilled to treat ourselves to an amazing date night. Off to the Angus Barn we went!

We came home on cloud 9, and after I cried my eyes out at dinner (overwhelmed with gratitude), we crossed off the last bubble on our Baby Step 6 debt wall. It’s still up on our wall today, reminding us of all we’ve accomplished.
I’ll be concluding this series tomorrow. Stay tuned for an exciting post full of financial resources for you!
