Week in Review: Wedding Bells Edition

by Kay Lynn

Beautiful day

There are wedding bells ringing in our family.  Yes, my stepson is on leave from Germany and eloping to Las Vegas to marry his longtime girlfriend.  No one can say he’s rushing into things as they’ve been dating the better part of a decade. 

We had a family gathering last night scheduled to celebrate his arrival that turned into a pre-wedding event.  Hopefully, the bride enjoys our group as she’s stuck with us; we’re family now.

I kept up with my reading despite a big work project and wanted to share some of my favorites with you. 


What does this mean?  31 days to build a better blog and it’s the title of an e-book by the probloggerhimself, Mr. Darren Rowse. Five of the Yakezie Challenge members are joining up to slog work through the book together.  Of course, I’m already a day behind.  My fellow members are:

Lakita from Personal Finance Journey is the ringleader.  She answered the question regarding tithing off tax refunds this week.

Jackie from Money Crush has her own smart phone app. How cool is that! My favorite article of hers this week examines culture and it’s impact on frugality.

Next on the roll call is Derek from Christian Common Cents. If we weren’t addicted to so many shows, I might follow his advice to cut the cableand use Netflix.

Last, but not least, is Carlos from Good Steward Keys. He was tied up this week but I highlighted his post last week on turning down a free car.

Editor’s Picks 

 Nurses-Dealing with Life and Death from the Millionaire Nurse Blog teaches how nurses do think differently which helps them be successful at their jobs.  One of my sisters is a nurse and I concur.

BarbaraFriedberg Personal Finance brings us Do You Need a Rolex Watch? I think not, but maybe that’s not the right answer.

Frugal Dad asks Are Coupons Making You Poor?  He makes a good case that it can, but the smart shopper will not have that experience.

There are a lot of myths about brick and mortar banksRead this article from Bargaineering to find out the truth.

How can we better educate kids about personal finance?  Foreigner’s Finances has an excellent  high school curriculum for money education.

Hey Bucksome,
Congratulations on your stepson’s wedding. I’m sure you’re all thinking ‘it’s about time’ and looking forward to grandchildren now.

@Barb, I don’t think I need a Rolex, but I would sure love one.

Guy, you are so right! Fortunately, we do have a little grandson right now so we weren’t pressuring him.

Jersey Mom, I’m embarrassed to say I don’t know. He planned it as a surprise but she found out. No one was invited since he’s only home a short time.

Congrats to your step-son!

Stopping by to welcome you to SITS!
