"See you later, I don't ever want to talk to you all again, I don't want you to mail me anything, unless of course its my pay off letter, you can close me out!"

That was the conversation I had with my student loan company.  I am freaking THRILLED today.  Today, we paid off the last of my student loans (in just under FIVE years, how horrible is that...)  Oh well, all that matters is their DONE! GONE, OUTTA HERE!

Thank you Dave Ramsey! (and our parents, who supported us, encouraged us, and even helped us a little!)

I never thought I would be this excited to write a check (ok I gave it to them over the phone... but still) for just under $3,000. 

We had decided about a year ago that this HAD to be paid off by the time we had a child.  Period. Done.  No if, and's or but's!  I guess the jokes is on us, I'm not even pregnant and it's paid off!  Now... we throw most of our extra money at Travis' truck...

Saw this a while ago, and wanted to save it for the day that I could say besides our house and his truck, have no other debt!  Now to look forward to the day that I say, besides our house, we have no more debt. 


  1. Awesome! We use Dave Ramsey as well. We've been able to pay off A LOT of debt! It's amazing.

  2. YEAH!! What great news!

  3. Congrats! Such a relief, isn't it? When you pay it off you really understand what they mean when they say "the burden of debt", huh? PS- I LOVE this SNL spoof!
    Congrats again!
