Gut Check Link Love

My dream is that I'll be digging in the ground someday,
and find a box or pile of money.
It can happen, right?
My pal Fargo Jones has finally gotten a full time job AND unloaded his albatross of a house.  Things are definitely looking up, but it's funny that once you get the thing you want most, it seems to bring with it a new batch of problems and concerns.  Digging your way out of debt is an arduous, lengthy and kind of scary process, but I have nothing but respect for those who are doing it.  You can do it, Fargo!!

And Then She Saved has a tutorial on how to use scarves to pump up your style on the cheap--including an embed of a kick-ass video.  I've always been really bad at accessorizing, but then I realized that my wardrobe of 'classics' was becoming a bit dull to look at.  Now, I'm all about belts, scarves and the occasional necklace, and I love it when someone gives me new ideas.
More inspiration!

I haven't made this Teriyaki Chickpea Stirfry from Peas and Thank You yet, but I've certainly been thinking about it every day since it was posted.  I'm drooling a bit right now, I won't lie.

One of my favorite personal finance gurus--The Money Girl list out the reasons why being fit will help you earn more money and save more in the long run.  Yup, I totally agree, and I'm not just saying that because I had that AWESOME doctor visit a couple weeks ago.


  1. Wow, what a wonderful thing to wake up and read today! Thanks for the support!

  2. I love Peas and Thank You and have been eyeballing that same sure to check out her book too!

  3. Check out those scarves. I could use some help accessorizing. I don't do it enough.
