You're very lucky to find someone who makes you happy...and you got the added bonus of someone with the same financial interests.
It's tough building your financial foundation right out of school these days, especially when you come out with student loans. Good for you and your hubby for keeping the loans to a minimum with work and scholarships during school (too many people don't try to offset the costs, rather willingly rack up loans) and paying those off so quickly after!
I'm fairly new to the investment game as well (although solo right now as my other half doesn't care about finance at all), so I can't offer much advice, but I look forward to following your progress!
One piece of advice I will share, since you said you're looking to buy a house...don't pay any attention to how much the bank will lend you - it is NOT what you can afford...they will always lend you MUCH MORE than you can comfortably afford. Look at your expenses and your income, and figure out how much you are comfortable spending (on mortgage, property taxes, maintenance, utilities, etc.), then base your house price on that.
Also, don't feel like you must buy right now. You don't have to. You will not regret it if you wait to find a home you like in your price range.
