Weekend Reads: Easter Weekend
As a 33 year old single lady, I have a hard time watching Bridget Jones, reading any of her books, or whatever. Too close to home, honestly. But. I can't wait to see the latest movie. The corresponding book I wasn't a fan of (ugh, how could you do that Helen Fielding?!), but this movie apparently has nothing in common with the book, so I'm stoked. Will you see it? Maybe I should watch the original this weekend... though I'm spending it at my mom's, which seems like it could be slightly depressing. Ha. What are you up to this weekend?

Finances have been on my mind lately--a lot of friends are buying houses / moving or going on awesome trips. I have 3 bank accounts, but I love the way this person does it--she has four: Activities, Bills, Crisis, and Dream. My Crisis and Dream accounts are one in the same--I often raid it now that I have a car, and I shouldn't! I think I just might need to add another savings account to my list. (Also, I have a 401K that I actively save into, so technically... I guess I have four accounts, but that's not in the spirit of the article) (via The Everygirl)
