Good Morning DINKS and Happy 1st Friday of August.  There is one more month left in summer and we want to know about your summer vacation plans.  What did you do for your summer vacation this year or what are you planning to do for your summer vacation over the next month?

I took a week off in June and just stayed close to home, my boyfriend Nick and I are planning a mini four-day vacation to Niagara Falls in the next few weeks.  My final week of vacation this year is in November; I am deciding whether I should just stay home and enjoy the Fall or take a week-long vacation to Portugal.  Any suggestions?

This weekend I am planning to be in New York City for The BlogHer ’12 Conference.  It is the first time that I will be attending BlogHer and I am very excited.

We have rounded up some great posts this week from some of our favourite personal finance bloggers.
