Weekend Wandering


Happy Sunday!  I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!  I am on my way back to Florida from New Orleans, where I was attending the FinCon conference.  While I was there I got to catch up with some great friends, as well as speak about Pinterest and also share Elite Blog Academy with the blogging community.  All in all it was a fantastic weekend!

With FinCon checked off my list, I am excited to be able to focus on our big Clutter Free Challenge, which is happening here at Living Well Spending Less the entire month of October!  I’ll be sharing more details about it this week, but if you are ready to join and want to have the daily challenges sent straight to your inbox, you can sign up HERE.

Now moving on to our Weekend Wandering……here is what I loved this week!
