I Love You Like a Blogger Roundup – 8/29

Here we are, the last weekend of Summer.  I have to do a 17 mile run,  a fantasy football draft, some last minute school shopping, and our neighbor is having a neighborhood party.  We’ll be throwing back a few cold ones, grilling some food, and putting together the 200 foot slip-n-slide down the hill of the park that extends from our backyards.  It’ll be a busy but fun weekend, and except for the school shopping part. relatively tame on the checkbook.  Then, next week it’s back to school for the kids, and back to her job at the school district for my wife.  Order and routine will return to the Pizel household.  While I’m sad to see summer wind down, I’m very excited for order and routine.

If that’s not enough to make you fist pump, here’s my top six personal finance articles of the week!

  1. Woohoo, sounds like a packed weekend. I say do the run first thing so you can party the rest of the weekend. I still wanna try that slip and slide! Thanks for the link love!

    I love the slip and slide! No wonder you didn’t want to give up your home as you paid off debt. You have a Great location AND Great neighbors!

    I’m surprised how late school starts up there. My grandkids have been in school nearly a month!

    Have an EPIC weekend!

      Exactly, Sassy Mamaw……love our neighborhood! I think we could start school a little earlier here…kids get bored pretty quick in summer. 🙂 Thanks for your comment!

  3. I think slip n slides are making a huge comeback. I remember them from the 70’s! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

      I had a tiny one when I was little……the one we build is 200 feet long and 8 feet wide. You can do spins and tumbleweeds and all kinds of things on the way down. Fun for kids of all ages. 🙂

    Have fun with the slip and slide. This 1000-foot water slip and slide made its way through the streets of major Canadian cities this summer. Unreal! – http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2014/07/1000-foot-long-water-slip-slide-coming-vancouver/

    Thanks for highlighting Sandi’s emergency fund article here. It made me fist-pump, too.

    Enjoy your weekend!
