Link Round Up – Recovering From Vacation Edition

April 16, 2011 · 113 comments

in Link Round Up

It seems like forever since I wrote a round-up post.  Being gone for two weekends has thrown my writing off a bit!

First, I would like to give a big thank you to authors of the following blogs for providing guest posts in my absence:

Faithful With A Few


Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance.com

Budgeting in the Fun Stuff

The Single Saver

Without those guest posts, my site would have just withered away when I was on vacation, so again, thank you!

Anyway, what a week!  Spending 10 days in another climate and driving 20 hours straight takes a lot out of a person.  Well, my nice husband did the lion’s share of the driving on the way home as I wasn’t feeling well.  But, we had a fantastic time.  Sometimes it can be hard to see if a vacation is worth all the money you spend.  I can say this vacation was worth every penny.  Even though I came home tired and sick, my brain is refreshed and my outlook as improved.  I did miss my blog a lot though, and it felt great to get back to writing.

So, it is time for me to reveal some of my favorite reads from the past week.  I didn’t read as much as I normally do since I had to do a bunch of laundry and settle back in.

101 Centavos shares an honest assessment of the progress on his goals for 2011.  I loved this post because it makes me yearn to work in my own garden.  However, that has to wait a lit bit longer here in Michigan than it does where 101 resides.

Barb Friedberg Personal Finance teaches us how much a house can really cost, especially when you consider interest rates.  Housing might seem cheap now, but chances are, interest rates and home values will go up.  That same house you could buy today may cost several hundred dollars more a month if a few years.

Budgeting In the Fun Stuff informs us that her husband is losing his job.  Although this isn’t a favorite post in that the content made me happy, it was a great post because it brings to light how wrong some establishments are structured when a loyal, hard working employee gets let go because of lack of seniority.

Faithful With A Few shares how to file for a Tax Extension, just in time for Tax Day!

Financial Samurai is going to spend all of his tax refund on fun!!  Sam saves 70 percent of his income though, so I think spending a somewhat unexpected lump of money on a trip is a great idea.

First Gen American shares her thoughts on extreme couponing, traits of extreme couponers, and also some thoughts on Babci as an added bonus!

Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured shares an experience at a party where a party guest decided to share their unsolicited opinion.  It is so interesting how people feel they can say whatever they want when it comes to parenting.

Invest It Wisely writes a very in-depth article regarding the strength of the Canadian dollar.  The days of getting $1.25 Canadian for every American dollar seem so long ago!

Krantcents shares his progress on his goals for 2011. I too would love to be on the Wisebread 100 list, but I have a LONG way to go to achieve that. (Especially since compete.com is used as part of the formula, and they are WAY off on my traffic.)

Money Crashers has a great post about grill maintenance, which is just in time for Spring.

Money Mamba states how he predicts the Federal Reserve will act in the 2nd quarter.   He also does a great job explaining some aspects of monetary policy.

Money Reasons tells the story about a friend of his that made a lot of money on ebay.  Have you ever tried selling on ebay?  I have sold quite a few books, but that is about it.

MoneyCone provides a great explanation of Beta along with a real life stock example.

Retire By Forty explains why he feels buying a home is better than renting.  What do you think?

Single Mom, Rich Mom shares a birds-eye view of her life thus far, and it is amazing story.  This post covers money, relationships, and more.  You really do need to stop by and read it.  Her story may provide perspective on your own life.

The Single Saver lets us all know that National Park Week is April 16-24.  Visitors get in to the National Parks for free during that week.

Squirrelers wrote a ‘Squirreling Gone Wild’ post that literally had me laughing out loud.  I even told my kids about it.  (The ice cream cone part was the best!)

TransformX shares how to avoid putting on the pounds when feeling stressed.

Windy City Gal has been documenting her travels to Spain.  I feel like I am in Spain with her when I read these posts.

Thanks for the link love! Glad you’re back from vacation… and didn’t get stung by a sting-ray.


Moneycone April 16, 2011 at 5:17 pm

I hope you are rejuvenated now that you are back from your vacation Kris! Looking forward to more of your insightful thoughts on life!

Thanks a bunch for the mention!


Linda April 16, 2011 at 6:14 pm

I appreciate the link and am glad you’re enjoying my Spain reminiscences! Travel is really fun, but can also be really tiring. Hope you’re back at full speed soon.


Dan April 16, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Great links, thanks. Hope you had fun in Florida!


Khaleef @ KNS Financial April 16, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Hey Kris, I’m glad that you were able to have a wonderful vacation!

It was an honor to write a guest post for you while you were away. I really wanted to do it, because you’ve always been so helpful and supportive!

Thanks for linking to my article as well!


Yakezie April 16, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Wow… 20 hours driving means you need a vacation from a vacation! Welcome back.

Let me know what you think of the new pledge page and stuff when you get a moment.

Cheers, Sam


retirebyforty April 17, 2011 at 9:46 am

it sounds like you had a great vacation though! thanks for the mention!


101 Centavos April 18, 2011 at 6:44 am

Hi Kris, thanks for the link. Hope the weather warms up soon.


First Gen American April 18, 2011 at 8:21 am

Thanks for the link. I really need to book my vacations for the year. I got all down on planning after my vacation fiasco from Feb, but I finally got my kid’s passport applications in the mail on Friday.

I love vacations. They have always been a priority although I’m leaning more towards long weekends driving distance this year. I’ve been wanting to do NYC with the kids and explore it more.


Armando April 20, 2011 at 10:28 am

It’s a good you had a good vacation, it’s good to relax once in a while. This was a great round up but I personally loved Barb Friedberg Personal Finance.


Jasmine April 21, 2011 at 12:17 pm

Welcome back Kris! Glad to know that you had a wonderful vacation!
Thanks for the links – fantastic roundup – I am a follower of Single Mom, Rich Mom.
I think I’d start reading Barb Friedberg Personal Finance as well.


Lawrence Garcia April 22, 2011 at 2:51 am

I really liked the link, thank you Kris. I do know that you had a great one! Your views and insight on life is quite helpful and unique and it is really helpful. Hoping that you won’t stop posting stuffs like these.


Kevin@InvestItWisely April 30, 2011 at 5:13 pm

I just got back as well! I’m recovering from an airport overnighter as well as the depression of going from sunny skies and sunny beaches to brown and gray! I’m almost over it but not quite. 😉


JT McGee May 1, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Thanks for sharing my link on the Fed; it’s very much appreciated! 🙂
