Frugal Friday: Posts That Ruled This Week, I Ate Too Much Turkey Edition

Lies We Believe

If you’re reading this then I am assuming you’re at home enjoying a day off and not fighting the crowds for a Black Friday deal. I am sitting here at home working off a food coma and enjoying some football and extra time with the family. This has been a short, but crazy week. Our youngest has entered the always fun time of teething. For those who do not have children yet, a teething baby does not enjoy life, especially in the wee hours of the morning. I always feel so bad for them as they have no clue what’s going on and they’re in a good bit of pain. Each of our children have reacted in their own ways, but our youngest is the most expressive. My wife (who is a Lord of the Rings fan) says he sounds like a ring wraith when he screams with all his heart. So, as you can imagine, the past few nights have resulted in little sleep as our little guy wakes up the house. Thankfully he won’t go through this forever and will have no memory of cutting his teeth.

Although this has been a short week, there’s been no loss for great blog posts in the blogosphere. Below were some of my favorite, again, in no particular order. If you’re looking to get away from the commercial hysteria of the Black Friday holiday, then I encourage you to check out some of these blog posts.
