It's Graduation Season!

So as you readers may know, I am a law school. About to be a former law student and move into the world of being a J.D. and eventually a lawyer. My graduation is so close, May 22. This will be my third college graduation, the previous two being my A.A. and B.A. By far this is the most important ceremony I will attend in my academic career, but it is bittersweet.

My grandfather was always my biggest motivator. He believed that I could do anything I put my mind to and encouraged me to pursue my academic interests. I will always remember how happy he was at my A.A. graduation. I was the first person in my family to go straight to college and graduate. He was so proud. Unfortunately, he passed away the next year and I haven't stopped missing him since. I know even though he can't be there physically for my law school graduation, he will be there in spirit and beaming with pride.

My family, my husband and his family, and my friends will all be at my law school graduation this month to cheer me on. This is such a huge milestone and one I've worked non-stop for the last seven years to achieve! So of course, with a big graduation comes the big celebration.

Book Review: 21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart

Have you been looking for ways to revamp your lifestyle? To eat healthier foods? To integrate more vegetables? To lose weight? Well that's what I've learned a lot about in Dr. Barnard's "21 Day Weight Loss Kickstart."


 This book is packed with essential information on taking a healthy approach to weight loss and making strides in the right direction for lifestyle changes. Dr. Barnard teaches you how to substitute sugary, craving foods with healthy alternatives. It shows you how to restructure your diet to include more produce to make tasty dishes. And the best part is no calorie counting! These dishes are balanced and will help you jumpstart your metabolism and put you on the path to achieving your goal weight. The recipes are provided for you! Dr. Barnard also explores how these dietary changes can not only help your metabolism, but can also make a healthy impact on diabetes and high cholesterol.

I am certainly going to be putting the knowledge in this book to practice. I'll check-in at the end of the month and let you know how it's gone. AND I'll try to show you how to create some of these easy recipes using coupons and on a budget!

Amazing Bedding Sets on Sale at Macy's!

So as you know, we just bought a new house, so I am of course in the decorating spirit.

Macy's has some great markdowns for Mother's Day including Bedding Sets (and they have lots on clearance too). Today we scored a $300 bedding set for only $99.99! And the other one we were considering was marked down to only $69.99. Some were even as low as $49.99. And they are beautiful.

If you're in the market for some new linens, I would suggest swinging by and taking a peek.

    **Updates, Updates, Updates!!!**

    So you are probably wondering, what the heck happened to the DC Frugal Girl for the last two weeks. Well a lot has happened that's what!

    First of all, my apologies for not posting about the delay ahead of time. I had expected to have internet/blogger access more frequently, but that ended up not being that case.

    So long story short, I had to travel out to Denver to a competition, then came back and packed up and moved into the house that my hubby and I just bought, and today I turned in my last law school assignment ever.

    BUT I am happy to say that I am now leaving near tons of great stores and am able to scout out lots of great deals to share. Our new house is in Glen Burnie, but I am still the DC Frugal Girl.

    The deals will start rolling back in this evening and I expect that you will be impressed with everything there is to share. Also, I am getting ready to launch a great new affiliate website, so keep an eye out for that!

    Finally, the DC Frugal Girl is looking for help. If you are interested in contributing guest posts (for credit of course!) or creating reciprocal post arrangements, please let me know!~

    I thank you for bearing with me for this transition and I look forward to your continued readership. I love you all!

    Frugally,
    Dana
