We got back from a four-day, three-night vacation to the beach. That’s why you didn’t see much posting going on Friday or Saturday. We had a blast while not blowing the bank. Worked on our tans, had great food… the whole bit.

While I was out there were a multitude of great posts out there to catch up on. Here are just a few.

Bible Money Matters hosted the Carnival of Money Stories.

Thanks for sharing my frugal mortgage post with your readers. The post from Dough Roller also intrigued me since it was on a similar topic, and I may be going through a home purchase in the next few months.
