TGIF: October? Really?

by Karen on October 2, 2009

Am I the only one who feels like October sneaked up on us a bit? But I’m not complaining. October is my absolute favorite month. It’s also the month I feel most homesick for the Midwest. The weather in North Carolina is beautiful right now — finally. It’s been in the 70s and sunny every […]

TGIF: Birthday edition!

by Karen on September 25, 2009

This weekend we’re celebrating my wonderful husband’s 26th birthday! I have a lot of great, frugal activities planned for the weekend (including free admission to the local art museum for Museum Day). I’ll be sure to share some pictures with you on Sunday from the festivities! Just have to get through one last work day. […]

I’d like to get some cleaning and organizing done around the house, but the weather is supposed to be beautiful this weekend. So we’ll see what actually gets done. :) I’ve been in an organizing mood, though. I just did some cleaning up in my Google Reader, and deleted blogs that aren’t updated anymore or […]

TGIF Round Up: Friday Fun Edition

by Karen on August 28, 2009

I’m so grateful for all of the kind words of support on yesterday’s post. I was incredibly nervous about posting it — so nervous that I actually woke up in the middle of the night, changed my mind, and canceled it. But when I woke up in the morning and read over it again, I […]

TGIF Round Up: Finally slowing down edition

by Karen on August 21, 2009

I can’t thank all of you enough for the support and encouragement on my post about homesickness. I’ve found so much support in the blogging community for the past two years, and I know that all of this would be so much harder if I didn’t have such wonderful readers and bloggers to help me […]

TGIF Round Up: I Spent Edition

by Karen on July 24, 2009

Thank you so much for being so supportive about yesterday’s announcement! I am so excited for this slight change in direction, and I can’t wait to get started. Now it’s time for me to come clean. This week, I did something very unfrugal. We bought some concert tickets. They were only $30 a ticket, which […]

TGIF Round Up: Relaxing at home edition

by Karen on July 17, 2009

I’m so looking forward to this weekend. We had a lot of fun last weekend taking a short trip out of town, but I’m looking forward to some good old fashioned relaxation. The forecast is calling for rain, so I’m happy to take a cue from the weather and spend the weekend at home. I’ve […]

TGIF Round Up: Summer concerts edition

by Karen on July 10, 2009

I’m so excited it’s finally the weekend! We’re spending the weekend seeing some live music. Tonight a Michael Jackson cover band is playing for free in our city, so we’re heading downtown to watch. This same band used to play in my college town, and it was always a great time. Tomorrow we’re driving about […]
