If you can't get enough bratwurst, schnitzel and strudel; you look good in lederhosen; and a night filled yodeling and doing the chicken dance sounds like a good time— have we got an infographic for you. Check out the Top Oktoberfest Celebrations Around the U.S. Fun times!
Inspired by the two-week festival held each October in Munich, Germany (which is known as the largest fair in the world), these U.S. cities go all out when October rolls around. It's not-stop entertainment— almost like experiencing the streets of Munich, right here in the U.S.

It's that time again— ghosts, goblins, princesses and pirates roaming the streets, asking for candy. Halloween!
People LOVE this time of year. The air is crisp. Leaves are turning and falling to the ground. What better time to have a party! Did you know that Halloween is the 2nd most decorated for holiday— right behind Christmas? Even if that surprised you, I have a feeling you won't be shocked when I tell you that it's also the top holiday for candy sales. Who can pass up those little bite-sized Snickers® and Reece's Peanut Butter Cups®? Not this girl.

This weekend, my husband and I watched Moneyball at the theater. If you haven't seen it, you should. Great movie— whether you're a baseball fan or not. While the story and concept behind what Billy Beane did with the Oakland A's was super interesting, it made me think beyond how the game is won because it's also a story of fan loyalty. It's not difficult to show-up for a team when they're on top, with all of the best, well-known, highest-paid players. But it's a little more difficult when they're on a losing streak and the talent pool doesn't seem quite as awesome.

What's the Best Way to Store and Move?

In my former life, I worked as a residence hall director at a university. During that time I picked up on the importance of living on-campus, especially for underclassmen. Studies show that students who live on campus have higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate, do a better job of making friends and getting connected, have less stresses about money, become more successful leaders, and have a better over-all college experience. I'll take that.

Something you may not have considered while you're preparing for your cross-country move is how to protect yourself from debit card and credit card fraud. Considering all of the transactions that take place during the moving process, it's a very real concern and definitely something to keep top-of-mind.
