Wise Woman Weekend Wrap-up & We're on Periscope!

What a fun and full week it has been here at the Fuentes household. We got to celebrate a birthday--Joy turned 13!

It was fun taking her out to eat, catching a movie (we saw the new Peanuts Movie that we think was so cute and true to the traditional cartoons), and going shopping for new clothes and such.




I have also spent some of last week week checking out Periscope and checking out some scopes from seasoned bloggers.

It has been an encouragement to receive valuable content *and* engage live with other bloggers in real time. I have been especially enjoying Money Saving Mom and recently picked up her latest book, The Money Making Mom: 





I will definitely share more on this book in the future!

If you don't know anything about Periscope and want to know what it is and how to use it, this book was also recommended by her, The Scoop on Scope:





We were brave and made an account there too, I am not sure when I will use it but hopefully soon when things slow down around here a bit! You can follow us at Periscope HERE. Remember, that you first need to download the Periscope app onto your iPhone or Android to be able to use it.

 I wanted to share a few links around the web that might be of interest to you:


THE 6 ASSASSINS OF A MAN'S CONTENTMENT

Busyness is doing all the things that we are responsible for, but hurriedness is the frantic mental and emotional state we experience that accompanies our busyness. Hurried people can't celebrate (which is the secret sauce of contentment) because they are focused on the next thing on their to-do-list.
