Sum Up Sunday // First Sunburn of the Season

Today I had a wonderful surprise morning chat with Megan of Freckled Italian.  It's always great to talk to her because she is awesome! I think I need to make a trip to hang out with her soon, like for real.

On Saturday, Zach & I headed out to check out a TV he found on craigslist that he thought he could fix.  Unfortunately he couldn't figure out what was wrong with it, so we didn't buy it.  I've been thinking about reading the book that Kristin of Tales from the Nook has been reading about finances.  She tweeted the other day about selling things in their basement on craigslist.  While Zach & I don't have a basement full of junk, it got me thinking about Zach being able to fix TVs & computers & stuff.  If he can score something for a great price, fix it, & turn it around & sell it, that would be awesome! I think in this day & age everyone is looking for a little extra income.

Since that craigslist find was a bust, we decided to head to another antique mall & then to the beach.  I love living close to the water & couldn't imagine living too far from a body of water.

I also got my first sunburn of the season & finished my first Sonic Strawberry Limeaide.  I've been tempted to try the Ocean Water too.  I am actually surprised I haven't yet!

As for shop news, there are now some awesome pieces of pottery in there now.  A matching bowl set, some mismatched tumblers, etc.  I have a few mor things I need to add that will probably be up either by tonight or Monday.

As for other life things, I am thinking about doing a little blogging 101 ebook sort of thing.  I've loved doing the Boost your Blog series & want to share more, especially on how to get started.  It's a big leap & sometimes you just don't know what to do!  I want to share my experiences, what I've noticed, & the advice I've been given.  A basic step by step just to give you a little more reassurance.

Don't forget you can enter to win a scrapbooking software suite from MyMemories.com here.

Did you do anything cool this weekend?

  1. I am pretty dang excited to hear that my new-found thriftyness is inspiring you! :) I think it's a GREAT idea to try out the Dave Ramsey plan. Like I said in my post, it's not just for people that are in "financial ruin" or have absolutely no clue about finances. we have always been good with our money, but the little changes that we've made have already made a HUGE difference! if the book wasn't on my kindle, I'd mail it to you to borrow! But check the library. Just make sure it's the latest edition :)

    Ok, enough rambling. Totally jealous of your beach day and your convo with Meg. She's the cutest :) So are you, obviously :)
