As I mentioned last week, I have clearly been in a bit of denial regarding the whole college savings thing for Laurel and Violet. So it seemed quite fitting to head to the MEFA/Fidelity U.Fund Dreams Tour tent at Mixfest with Laurel on Saturday. Laurel's newly minted 10-year-old status has been conjuring up all sorts of “what will happen in the future?” type conversations in my head pretty much constantly.
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I was a bit under the weather, but am feeling a million percent better this morning and am ready to kick off the week. Most notably, tomorrow I'll start the Miracle Marathon (please join me!) and also start coaching Girls on the Run at Laurel's school. Eep! Meanwhile, if you're looking for something to do, enjoy this roundup of event options for the week:
Happy Friday everyone -- I hope you're having a great week and have a chance to get out and enjoy this spectacular day! I also hope the rain holds off tomorrow for MixFest (come meet me at the U.Fund Dreams Tour tent!) and so many other wonderful events going on in and around town. And on that, enjoy today's epic mega roundup, including 39 events, lovingly curated for your consideration!
I have a confession. Despite knowing that it’s a good thing to plan for Laurel and Vi’s college funds and despite the fact that I suffered a lot of stress and ugly cries given that my parents weren’t able to support me through most of college, I have done NOTHING in the way of financial planning. I’m not sure if it’s related to denial or overwhelm, but I have done nothing! Subsequently, I’m thrilled to be working with MEFA and Fidelity on the U.Fund Dreams Tour so I can learn and share nuggets of financial planning wisdom with you.
Today, Paige shares a roundup of 8 fall fedoras under $50 (perfect for those bad hair days!). I'm thinking #4 has my name written all over it...share which picks are calling your name in the comments below!
It all started when I was 16. I saw Meg Ryan strolling through Central Park in her bucket-stye fedora as Sally Albright in When Harry Met Sally, and I knew hats were going to be my thing. Twenty-five years later, they still are.
