Come along again, we're not done yet...

Are you ready for round two? I'm guest posting today at Kelly + Olive on how to live within your means. This is an important post for me, so I don't want you to miss it...but that means you have to click here.
Here's a little expert to peak your curiosity...
"I've never been good at keeping up with the majority of my peers. In fact, in high school I had a Spanish teacher who use to call me 'orphana' because he said I dressed like an orphan (he totally did not get grunge). Attending a wealthy school and coming from a family with little or no money to indulge my every trendy whim, I learned to be creative, to see beauty in things others discarded as trash (my artistic mom, who was then very sick with cancer, helped me see things clearly). In essence, I developed a sense of style because I had no other choice. "
Kelly + Olive is a fantastic, useful, and stylish interior design blog and I'm thrilled they asked me to be a part of their "how-to" series. Click here to read the rest of the post.
Thank you, sweet readers, for the extra work you're doing today, and although I hate to tire your index finger, it's for your own good because blog life without these two blogs (K + O and Design Lovely) is hardly worth blog living.

OMG! HA! I know how you feel about the disclaimer part! (but it was prefect!) I am really sorry about your mom. Whats wrong with the Spanish teacher, grunge was so in LOL!! Denial really is rough! Have you read this book called Emotional BS(well, BS is actually spelled out in the title). I totally agree with you, goals are so important! I LOVE YOUR game nights! FUN AND FRUGAL! :) and OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE that you said CONFIDENCE! That really is KEY! WOW! Are you sure only your brother is a financial advisor? Very well done! perfect. thank you for sharing that!

I was so happy to read your views. I am in a very similar situation and cannot agree with you more. It makes me more confident to see someone who can handle these things so well. Thanks for sharing!

Hi, Lane said...

Checked our your K&O post! Loved it. Thanks for the inspiration! One of the things that was the hardest for me in marrying my husband is that his monthly student loan payment is more than half of what he makes each month. Adding in a mortgage, truck pmt, my student loans & everything else that pops up has us feeling like we're under water sometimes! So thanks for the post!

This may seem like such an amateur question.. But how exactly do guest posts work?
