Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

This week, I can finally make my announcement: I’m pregnant! My husband and I are super-excited about welcoming a baby to our family, and we have roughly six months until D-day to focus on finding all that baby stuff we’ll need. And stocking up on sleep now. I heard that babies can make you slightly tired…

The past few months have been exhausting by themselves. It takes a lot of energy to bake a little bun in the oven, and I’ve had no problem adding more sleep to my days. Now, though, as I enter the second trimester, I have a renewed sense of energy. Or at least I don’t have to lay my head down for a daily 3 p.m. nap anymore. Maybe just every other day.

In other news on the blogosphere, I actually was able to peel my eyes away from baby sites for a few hours to take in more about finances than about booties and bonnets. Here are some of the best blog posts of the week:

MoneyCone, thanks! It is our first; we're both so excited!

Femme Frugality, the Free Money Finance post was really interesting. Beauty and cash sure seem to be intermixed.

Ashley, thanks! I am really excited; heard the heartbeat last week, and it was the most amazing thing I've ever heard!

Brian, loved your post!
