Weekend Update!

Welcome to our very first "Weekend Update" on PBD! I want to hear about what you did this did you have a mini "staycation," did you go out and have a frugal date, did you splurge and blow the budget? Are you the stay-out-home type or the paint the town type of person? "Weekend Updates" should be fun and help me get to know what type of deals and ideas you like to read about! What do ya think, wanna comment on the very first PBD "Weekend Update?" I know you do... 

I'll start: Friday evening I attended a friend's birthday party at a small local restaurant. It was somewhat "single ladies" themed and we all dressed up and enjoyed spending time with the beautiful birthday girl! Here's a peek at that little black dress I told y'all about in Friday's post (I love TJ Maxx!).

Saturday evening was split into two parts--both super fun! The first half of the evening I hung out with one of my very favorite friends and her puppies (eeek! Love 'em!). Cute little doggies = "cheap" date. We watched the new BBC/Masterpiece "Emma." Diiivine, I tell you! What girl doesn't love a little Jane Austen?! 

The second half of the evening was spent with another very fun person! We ended up having a cheap, but exciting, late night adventure...driving out of our sometimes boring city and exploring another town. What a blast! 

Now it's your turn! What did you do this past weekend?

P90X Extreme Home Fitness: For Cheap

Do you and your honey like to exercise together? 

P90X, a popular workout program, seems to be a great fitness program both you and your partner can use together...the only problem: it ain't cheap. Sometimes going for $140 for the complete set of workout DVDs and guides, the price may deter some people from using it.  

Money Saving Mom has an excellent guest post on her website about saving money on the P90X system! The guest bloggers share several ways to purchase the program inexpensively.

Free Financial Peace University Lesson

It's a great idea for every couple to talk about finances (at least before getting married). Even better: going a step forward and taking a financial planning class together.

That's where Mr. Dave Ramsey comes in....

Dave Ramsey is offering you and your honey bunny (and your mom and his mom and your neighbor, etc.) a free Financial Peace University lesson. You can attend the first lesson of the 13 lesson course entirely free. Find the nearest FPU class here.

**Be aware that there are 13 lessons in all, and this free offer is just for the first lesson. I am not aware of how much the full class cost to attend. The disclaimer on Ramsey's site reads:
The first lesson of Financial Peace University is totally free.  All you have to do is register  to attend. Once the first lesson is over you will be given the opportunity to purchase your lifetime membership which includes the rest of the FPU lessons and class materials.

Even if you cannot attend Financial Peace University, check out Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover" book from your local library. It's a great way to get started saving and paying off debt!

These flowers are bloomin' lovely!

Okay men. The ladies have spoken...

...And they love the flowers that you pick out! A small (and very unofficial) Facebook poll conducted on Piggy Bank Dating's page confirms that we beautiful ladies love receiving flowers that you put a little thought into! Maybe you found out her favorite type of flower and made sure you had a bouquet made primarily of those. Or maybe you pick out different flowers that reminded you of her. Whatever the case...keep it up! We're loving those fresh (sometimes "low maintenance") flowers! It's such a sweet and lovely gesture of your affection.

Just a little Friday morning encouragement!

Ladies, what are YOUR favorite flowers to receive from your man? And MEN: do you have any suggestions for other guys when picking out flowers?
