Happy Saturday!! I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a three day weekend – we have all kinds of cookouts, get togethers and FUN planned! I hope y’all get to enjoy some free time with your loved ones, too. In the mean time, check out these links I loved this week!

+ Check out this adorable and EASY DIY Floral Grapevine Wreath – so cute for inside or outside your house!

Money Stuff
+ How we saved for a trip to Hawaii on a very tight budget – here’s the proof I need that hard things are possible, including making a budget and sticking to it!!

Just Living Life
+ The truth about being a sorority girl – for those of you not exposed to Greek life much, this is a GREAT educational read.
+ Have you heard about The Subtraction Project? I was intrigued enough that I signed up for the daily emails to help me subtract clutter from my life over the next 30 days. For all of you simplicity-seeking girls, I think this is right up your alley.
+ My sweet friend Hayley has a very exciting announcement up on her blog – go check it out!

Let’s Laugh

What you may have missed

+ A new perspective on your closet – thoughts on how we get dressed & why we wear what we do.
