Happy Saturday! Can you believe it’s already June?! I can’t believe at the end of this month half the year will already be over, it feels like every year it just goes by even faster! What are your plans for the weekend? We’re thinking about going to see the newest Fast & Furious and Star Trek movies.
This week I decided to start something new and write up a weekly recap of the posts from this week. I know that I often don’t get to visit my favorite blogs on a daily basis. So, it can sometimes be overwhelming to keep up with all the new posts and I know that many of you are in the same boat. So, I thought I’d start recapping posts for the week, what was most popular, along with sharing some of my favorite reads from around the web.

My 5 Faves from the Blogosphere this Week:
I love reading other blogs and these are the 5 posts that I enjoyed or inspired me most.
Hi, Mom! I Think I Am Gay! at Crunchy Frugalista – I’ve heard, seen and read so much about bullying and parents disowning their kids because of being gay that it is so refreshing to see a parent (and kid) so open and supportive.
A Journey to Self Acceptance by Yolanda Machado at Babble – This article hit home for me so so much as a person that’s dealt with weight issues as long as I can remember. It’s taken me a long time to learn to love myself overweight or not, and even though I’m not as healthy as I want to be yet, finally having that self-love and confidence has let me achieve and find so much more success than I ever imagined possible for myself!
Doing the Math on Home Ownership at The Simple Dollar – The boyfriend and I have been talking a lot lately about buying a home within the next few years so we can remodel, have a real garden, etc. how we want it, so I always enjoy reading the rent vs own perspectives.
Brown Sugar Brownie Bars at Dear Crissy – I love love love blondies and chocolate chip cookies so I was immediately salivating when I saw this recipe!
Tiny Terror at I Can Has Cheezburger – Okay, so this isn’t really an article, BUT I absolutely adore black cats and especially kittens and thought this one was entirely too cute.
Have a smart savvy weekend everyone!
