    Thanks for the link love!

    And I wanted to tell someone… I’m weighing in at 146.6. My size 8s fit again so shopping for size 10 catastrophe averted. I still need another 2 lb for the size 8s to fit perfectly, but I’m decent and not in pain.

  2. Everyday Tips

    Thanks for including me! Have a great weekend!

  3. Ken @Spruce Up Your Finances

    Thank you for the mention. Have a nice weekend!!

  4. Molly On Money

    Thanks for including me! The consensus is people have a hard time letting go of books!
    I started reading ‘My Little Hen House’ last week and love her. Thanks to your gratitude link I discovered ‘The Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured’ this week.
    You, BFS, are like my very own personal assistant in finding new and interesting blogs.

  5. Darwin's Money

    Thanks for including me!

  6. Crystal @ BFS

    @Nicole, yay for the weight loss! I’ve started an exercise challenge at www.crystalclearthoughts.com called “Inner Couch Potato Homicide” – you should totally join me and Kris! Please? Lol. My goal is to exercise 90 minutes a week and Kris’s is to go for 180 minutes (overachiever, lol…she’s way healthier than me already…I must catch up…hehehe).

  7. Crystal @ BFS

    @Jason, no prob and yes, you must check out my new blogs…*in brainwashy voice*…check out new blogs…love new blogs…submit kitten pictures to pet blog…hehehe. 😉

    @Everyday Tips, thanks for blogging! I know I am a sucky commenter lately (I may have over-scheduled myself, lol), but I do read every day and you are still awesome lady!

    @Ken, no prob! I hope you have a great weekend too!

    @Molly, it’s easy to include you – you’re kooky like me! I will concur that I will not be getting rid of any books that I have, but that’s mainly because I only own mostly favorites. I am a huge fan of the library and rarely buy a book unless I know I want it for life (like the “In Death” series by J.D. Robb and Harry Potter, hahaha). 🙂

    I’m so glad my weekly roundup and thanks is actually well received. I didn’t ever want it to feel like links-just-to-link…I spend about 2 hours on this post every week and an additonal 8 plus on reading other blogs to find my favorites. 🙂

    @Darwin’s Money, you’re welcome! I started reading Darwin’s Finance months ago and for some reason I took forever to tune in to Darwin’s Money…I’m working on it. 😉

  8. Nicole

    @BFS… Yeah, no on the exercise. At least not until the weather cools down.

    @MoM– Your blog is neat too!

  9. Mrs. Accountability

    Thanks for including the link to my 3 year blogoversary giveaway event! 🙂 I’m considering joining your new exercise blog. Sounds like it could be fun. 🙂

  10. Khaleef @ KNS Financial

    Hey Crystal, thanks for including my article on budgeting!

  11. Crystal @ BFS

    @Mrs. Accountability, we’d love to have you on the exercise challenge! I’ve done 10 minutes so far…

    @Khaleef, you’re welcome!
