Friday Faves: Happy July 4th


Happy July 4th loves.  I hope you are all getting outside to enjoy the sun, walk around without your shoes on and eat some good cookout food.  That’s the one thing I miss about living in a small town – the feeling of fresh cut grass on my feet and the feeling of sand between my toes.  I come from a town close to the five great lakes and the beaches were never in shortage.  Now I live in a big city and unfortunately fresh cut grass is hard to come by.

Have a great Independence Day and enjoy these posts from our personal finance friends:

Weekly roundup: No Income, Interview Tips and Budgets


Good morning Loves and Happy Friday.  Next weekend is July 4th and (in my opinion) it kicks off the whole summer season.  This summer I have another trip to NYC planned as well as a Justin Timberlake concert and I’m finishing it off with a trip to New Orleans in September.  Yes, summer 2014 is going to be a great couple of months.

Do you have anything special planned this summer?
