Good morning, Club Thrifty enthusiasts!  Not only is it Friday, but I have some awesome news to share with each and everyone one of you.  Are you sitting down?  Wait for it……

On Wednesday, we found out that we won the ebay Frugal Blog Award in the family category!  I’m sure you’re all wondering what exactly this means.  And the truth is, so am I.  From what I can tell, I’ve just won a whole lot of bragging rights, fame, and glory for all time.  I’m also the proud owner of this swank little badge to display on my blog until forevah.  Isn’t she beautiful???

Let’s move on to my favorite posts of the week!

Snark Finance shared some hilarious commentary about daydreaming on the job.  This is my favorite quote “What I spend the most time at work doing is thinking about the activities I would rather be doing.  For example, anything.”

Michelle at Making Sense of Cents posted some awesome pictures from her trip to St. Thomas….it made me want to go there!

Nicole and Maggie wrote my favorite post of the week about their next blog.  Their idea is to create a faux blog based on a typical male blogger wanna-be entrepreneur, Steve.  Shit, I would read it!

Frugal Rules wrote about the joys of being self-employed.  Since I quit my job last month, I could totally relate!

Reach Financial Independence wrote about the cost of living in Guatemala.

J.D. Roth wrote about how to live a life you love.  It really resonated with me for some reason.

The Heavy Purse wrote about some thing to consider before college.  Yeah, like not going into debt!


Also, make sure to check out my newest post at Get Rich Slowly.  I really thought that this one would bring out the angry mobs, but I managed to make it through unscathed.  I hope that everyone has a great weekend!
