It was a relaxing holiday weekend at the Savage household. Mark and I sat out on the porch and enjoyed the beautiful weather while finishing up the last 24 hours of our book deadline. Living With Less So Your Family Can Have More is the title the publisher chose. I honestly haven’t had the chance to go back and see if that was one of the titles any of you suggested in June! I’ll let you know, though.

We had some excitement over the weekend. Kendall asked Erica to marry him. They’ve actually been talking with Mark and I about getting married this fall before Kendall leaves for the Army, so we’d already begun planning. But he officially popped the question–ring and all –yesterday! I’ll blog more about that later!

Finally, I have two quick pieces of info that might be helpful for you:

1) If you subscribe to my blog (meaning you get the posts via email) you get all of my text posts via email. However, if you want to post a comment or watch a video I have posted, you’ll need to click on the title of the post in the email to go to my blog.

Last week’s house tour video was an example of that. When you get an email post and there’s nothing in it or it refers to something you didn’t receive via email, just click on the title and you’ll be able to view it on my blog.

2) When you view my blog, I highly suggest using the Mozilla Firefox browser. I don’t know why, but lately Internet Explorer doesn’t work well with Blogger blogs. So if you try to open my blog with Internet Explorer and you get an “operation abort” message, just download Mozilla Firefox and then open up the blog.

This seems to be a consistent problem with alot of blogs that are hosted by Blogger. I stopped using Internet Explorer a long time ago because it seemed to have alot of conflicts like that. I’ve never had any trouble with Mozilla however!

PS. Keep sharing those “Yes” mom stories! If you haven’t read through the stories submitted yet, or you want to join in the fun, you can do so here! I’m so inspired!
