News and Weekend Links

August 25, 2014


Hi there! Did you have a nice weekend? We spent a lot of time on the beach and can’t be thankful enough for another wonderful, happy, sunny weekend. The boys are ready for school to begin but we have one more fun in the sun road trip planned for them for Labor Day weekend. I feel summer just slipping away and I envy those who live in warm climates!

Nevertheless, I always welcome the fall and love that here in NJ you truly feel all four seasons. I’m all about change! AND this is great time to share my big news with you! Some of you might know already but I have recently joined the Latina Bloggers Connect team and I couldn’t be more grateful. You know how some of the sponsored content on MFBS is in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect? Well, I will now be on the other end of blogging, assisting other bloggers and making connections with brands we know their readers will love. It’s all about growing together, really, and I’m so proud to be a part of a group that is empowering to women.

I will still be here and I hope you continue to visit My Friend Betty Says!! I love blogging and know I will find balance with it all.  Thank you for your support (I feel the love!). Here are your weekend links:
