It’s Friday once again! What a great week this has been. While my running hasn’t been going so well, a lot of other things have so I’m ok with the tone of the week.
Awesome Things That Happened This Week
I saw an up tick in my staff writing income! This means I’ll be able to funnel even more cash towards my student loans this month. Woot!
I got a realistic idea of what my tax return is going to be, and hopefully I’ll be filing tonight. I’ll be receiving a fairly substantial refund this year, which I’m funnelling completely towards my student loans.
I got a wonderful recommendation from one of my previous employers on LinkedIn. It seriously almost moved me to tears and made me feel so validated.
I got my wedding dress! I tried it on and brought it home last night. Part of me was a little afraid it wouldn’t fit since I gained a bit of weight over the winter, but I guess all of this running negated that because the dress fit perfectly. It needs to be hemmed and have a bustle added, but other than that, it’s absolutely perfect. I’d love to share some pictures, but I want to keep the dress under wraps until the wedding. The picture above is a little sneak peek though.
Blog Posts I Loved
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m going to start keeping this list fairly short. Although I understand why other bloggers do it, I don’t like reading a big long list for link love round ups.
Lauren from L Bee and the Money Tree completed that “Getting to Know The Blogger” survey.
Kathleen from Frugal Portland posted her March numbers. She paid off her student loan debt! That’s awesome!
Mr. CBB from Canadian Budget Binder posted a delicious looking sloppy joe recipe using lentils. I really want to try it!
Bridget from Money After Graduation paid her student loans down to under $5,000. That’s amazing too!
Katie from Girl With The Red Balloon posted about how sometimes it’s hard to pull yourself up by your bootstraps.
