Friday Roundup: IRAs, Emergencies, and Mary Poppins

by Kristina on April 6, 2012 · 4 comments

cupcakeHappy Friday DINKS, and Happy Easter to those who are celebrating this holiday. 

My 40 day chocolate fast is officially over.  As you read this post I am probably enjoying a big chocolate cupcake from Magnolia cupcakes in New York City.  I am in New York City until Sunday night and I have lots of fun activities planned for my 3 day trip to New York City.

Later today I have an appointment at my local TD Bank branch to open a savings account, this afternoon I am getting my tattoo at In Born NYC Tattoo shop with Chris Torres (from NY Ink), and tomorrow night I am going to see the musical Mary Poppins on Broadway.

I hope that you all have a great weekend.  Enjoy our favourite posts from around the web this week:

Thanks for including my post in this round up Kristina. Hope you have a great Easter weekend! Since your chocolate fast is over that’s at least one area that will be better. I’d struggle with avoiding chocolate that long. It is the perfect weekend for that fast to be over though. Bring on the Easter chocolate!

Thanks for including Adaptu! Enjoy that chocolate.

Happy Easter!
