    by  • Tagged: ,

    This is the final part of our retrospective look at our 2007 goals. Here’s part 1 (Roth IRAs), part 2 (Student Loans), part 3 (credit cards), part 4 (joint retirement portfolio), and part 5 (have more fun).

    The answer to the question in the title: Hell Yeah.

    See the chart below for a neat graphic on how our assets, liabilities, and net worth have progressed over the past two years. (If you’re reading this in a feed reader or via email, it it seriously worth it to click to the actual post on our website to see the awesome bar/line graph. Seriously.)

    //include charts.php to access the InsertChart function

    …and without further ado, here is how the numbers look at the end of this year compared to the beginning…

    We ended up the year over $2,000 over our net worth goal. Not too shabby!

    This wraps up our goals for 2007. We kicked ass a little, if I do say so myself. In fact, Her and I agree that 2007 was one of the best years of our lives. We totally kicked 2007′s ass. 2007, you’re a little bitch.

    This weekend we’re going to finalize what we want to accomplish for 2008. We don’t think we’ll do as much ass kicking, but it better be prepared.
