Welcome to #FridaySharefest 5/20/16!


Each week for our #FridaySharefest, we spotlight bloggers in our community to showcase some of the faces in our community of bloggers. This week our host is Crystal!

Crystal of Thrifty and Frugal Living

Hello! I am Crystal from Thrifty and Frugal Living. I blog about lots of different things, but I have been focusing mostly on Tampa events and food recently. I *LOVE* our city and everything that it has to offer. There are literally dozens of events to choose from every week. Next weekend is the Tampa Bay Margarita Festival which is one of my favorite events every year. Here is my recap from the 2015 Margarita Festival. Head over to the Tampa Bay Bloggers Facebook to enter to win a pair of general admission tickets.

I have been a Tampa Bay Blogger for years and it is one of the best communities that I am a part of. Here are a few of my favorites from the last week:


I am somewhat of a self-proclaimed nerd and I adore posts that have anything to do with Star Wars, Marvel, super heroes, Doctor Who, etc. So, naturally I was drawn to Denise at Run DMT’s post about her Star Wars 5K Run. I wish I was a runner because I was so jealous of the pictures from this race (and the cool metals!).

Star Wars 5KImagine my delight when there were not one, but two nerdy posts in the link-up! Jenny at Metamorfit (who is our resident Librarian), has a list of books to get you read for Comic Con 2016! Doctor Who, superhero, Star Wars…this list has it all! I am definitely adding many of these to my Kindle.

Those were some really fun posts! We have some great serious posts that were shared last week too. I love this post by Jessica at Tampa Mom Runs. She shares 4 Things I’ve Learned from Fundraising. I am currently in school to be a teacher and I will be a future Mom. These are some really great tips that I will definitely use.
