Weekly Roundup

Blog Round-Up: Week of January 19, 2015

Blog Round-Up: Week of January 19, 2015 | www.TheHeavyPurse.com

I hope those who enjoyed a 3-day holiday weekend did so. I certainly enjoyed a shorter work week. šŸ™‚ Plus, I’m just happy that everyone is healthy again. The cold and flu bug ran through the Ryan household after Christmas as it did it so many families. Fortunately, we haven’t been affected by the measles, which is causing problems in Southern California and spreading, so be on the lookout.

Weekly Recap

On Monday in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., I shared some of his most inspirational quotes. There were so many great ones and it will be a post that I will revisit when I find myself struggling. On Wednesday, Tanya from Eat Laugh Purr shared a very honest look at why she failed to achieve her goals.

A Few Good Reads

Here are my favorite posts from the past week. Enjoy!

Money Crashers had a whale of post on Lifetime Savings Plan: Major Life Expenses & Savings Principles at Every Age. A ton of great information and a post you want to bookmark, so you can refer to again and again.

Kalen from Money Mini Blog shared with us how to Stop Being Lazy ā€“ Instill Self-Discipline and Run Your Life. A great post to read as you gear up to tackle your goals for 2015 and beyond.

Crystal at Money Saving Mom reminded us that You’re A Lot Wealthier Than You Realize. She recently returned from a trip to South Africa with an even greater appreciation for everything she has. A good reminder for all of us.

Leah over at Raising Flowers with Skids shared The Dedication of Our Home. I love her thoughts on what a “home” really is and how they chose to dedicate their home with their children’s input. A truly beautiful process that we all might want to consider, whether we have a family or not.

Cat from Budget Blonde shared A Day in the Life: Self-Employment with Twins. Proving that she is Super Mom, Cat gives us a peek into a what a typical day looks like for this busy and successful Mama.

Well, that’s a wrap for this week. Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?
