Thrift Tip: Easy ways to save money {Guest Post}

If you've been around here for any amount of time, you know that I really care about budgeting, saving money, and personal finance in general.  So today, I'm thrilled to be sharing a guest post with y'all from a friend of mine who runs his very own personal finance blog.  

This is a guest post from Ben over at Young Money Finance.  He's on a mission to help fellow young professionals achieve financial freedom, by making their money work for them, instead of the other way around!"

What I wore: navy and ballet flats

Remember when I said we had a really mild winter (save of course the crazy two weeks of snow and a few other freezing days here and there)?  

This is one of my favorite outfits from that.  Many thanks to hubs for entertaining the backyard photo shoots so that I can be reminded that I really do have outfits that I love.  (Helpful on days when I just want to go shopping...)

Sweet potato biscuits

Y'all.  It's March.  March.  This year is flying by.  And I am just doing a little happy dance for Spring that is coming around the corner.  Today, I'm sharing a fun little recipe that I tried recently for a treat that I love to see at parties - sweet potato biscuits.  

For this recipe, I adapted the original recipe HERE.

Snow day. Again.

HAPPY FRIDAY!  It has snowed twice this week.  We've had a pretty mild winter overall, and I feel like winter is throwing a little tantrum now that it's turn is almost over.  And frankly, I really enjoyed yesterday's snow.  We got between 4 and 5 inches of fluffy, wet, sticky we got up early, had a fun pancake breakfast, and built a snowman.

The roads were clear this morning.  Well, the main roads at least, aka the ones I needed to get around on and because it was nice and sunny, they were great by the afternoon.

And then this happened just as I was getting home from work:

And as much as I do not love winter weather, this snow was nice and fluffy and really beautiful coming down.  

And so, we've made snow cream and are staying warm next to the fire.  

Maybe it's not so terrible after all.
