Happy Friday, lovelies! Earlier this week I spent alot of time getting our LearnVest profile filled out to being our meetings with our Financial Planner. Remember the promo they ran with us? I totally took advantage of it because with a new living and working situation I want to make sure E and I are being smart about all of our spending. So far I am LOVING the LearnVest tools- they are super visual and give me a good overview of how we're tracking on our different expenses in our budget. I couldn't recommend it more!
Yesterday my hubby and I ditched NYC for a long weekend getaway in Virginia Beach! We are staying with some good friends of ours who live mere blocks from the beach, and we were lucky enough to be able to cash in some credit card points for FREE flights! I'd say it's a pretty budget savvy little vacay 🙂 Although it was hard to leave the new apartment and office I definitely needed a little R+R so I look forward to soaking up some sun this weekend 🙂 Hope you all have fun plans for Labor Day! On to my favorite links of the week:
- For our readers across the pond, here's a fun infographic about the average cost of a wedding in the UK.
- A touching story about a couple whose wish is getting granted by Wish Upon A Wedding.
- Love this post from Lauren of Every Last Detail about what a planner can do that your mom/bestie/Aunt Sally cannot.
