First things, first. My second guest post over at Frugal Living NW is up! This post highlights one of our favorite hiking places, McDonald Forest near Corvallis. So thankful to have the opportunity to do a couple fun posts on such a practical and helpful site. Go check it out and give them some comment love.
Most of their posts are about saving money in the NW (readers from all over will benefit from their posts), but right now they are doing a series on frugal family outings. Check out their growing list of places to visit in greater Portland area. Also, check out my first post for them on Hoyt Arboretum.
When we took the pictures (a long time ago) that are in BOTH articles I had no idea I would be including them in a guest post. One post I am wearing a St. Patrick’s shirt from 6 years ago and gym shorts, and the other post shows me wearing 3 awkward and thick sweatshirts after being ill prepared for a cold hike. Just keepin’ it real I suppose.
And on the other great news…the ol’ blog got a make-over! The hubs spent hours sprucing up the place to make it more visually appealing and cleaner. Isn’t he amazing? I would have absolutely no idea how to do this stuff. It is still a work in progress, but it finally has most of the elements I was hoping to include (there is a bug or two that will be fixed soon).
Let me know if you are having a hard time digging anything up and I will send you a link. The search feature should help with most of that. All of the posts are still there, but we are still working on some of the categorization. It is now time for me to dig through most of my old posts and try and re-categorize them into my new streamlined list. Fun stuff!
