Weekly Roundup: More Vegas, Giveaways and Retiring in 10 years

by Kristina on January 18, 2013 · 5 comments

Well Good Morning Dinks and Happy Friday.  I have been back from Las Vegas for just over a week and it has been somewhat of an adjustment.  The warm to cold weather has been an adjustment (I haven’t been outside very much) and the three hour time difference also took some adjusting to get back settled. But now I am happy to say that I am back into my routine and into the full swing of things.

I started my new job on Monday and so far it’s exactly what I expected and I’m loving it.  I had a great time at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas thanks to our friend Philip from PT Money. I attended some great keynote speakers, I networked with a few great companies and I made some new friends.  Stay tuned for a full review on the New Media Expo and my trip to Las Vegas.

Here are some great giveaways and posts from our personal finance friends that I met at NMX:

Hey there Kristina
It was great meeting you at NMX. We had a pretty tough adjustment back as well :) The snow and cloud cover are the pits. I miss sunny Vegas days. Thanks for including me in your post.

Congrats on the new job. Yes, the adjustment coming home was tough.
Thank you for the mention. Much appreciated!

I’ve been trying to re-adjust after NMX as well! There’s always a bit of a post-conference let down. :) Congratulations on your new job! Thank you for including my post in your list.

I am definitely having Vegas withdrawal however my first week of work at my new job was great so it makes up for it :-) Thanks for reading everyone.
