How YOU can pay for the Holidays 2013!

For the past couple years I have done programs on the 'net to help pay for the holidays. Also helps pay for other things through out the year. I want to share with you what I do to help offset the cost of the holidays. I will not tell you about any programs that I do not have experience with and know that they do pay.  The first program I do is S wagbucks . I love, love, love me some Swagbucks . It's a search engine that you can earn "bucks" on to turn into prizes.  You do searches, you win bucks, you cash out. You can also do the daily poll, the No Obligation Special Offers (NOSO), surveys & other opportunities.  They also now offer shopping. I average about 450 points every two weeks which I then cash out for a $5 Amazon gift card.  That's the best deal in my opinion but they offering all kinds of gift cards and Paypal options plus goodies you can cash out for.  Totally up to you. At work, my homepage is Swagbucks & I search everything

Portable North Pole ~ A Must for Your Little One

My littlest one is 6. He is my believer. We do the Elf on the Shelf...his name is Chipper. We sit on Santa's lap. We leave cookies & milk. I don't want him to ever doubt the "magic" of Santa. Recently I was given the opportunity to try out Portable North Pole . I am so glad I was able to give it a go. Cheeks needs a little more help in staying off the naughty list.  Not only does it reinforce the need to stay on the nice list, it's also fun as all get out!!!! And as a plus, each time a Portable North Pole product is purchased, 5% of the sale price will go directly to affiliated children’s hospitals in the U.S., Canada, UK, Ireland and France.  Total score right there.  I was able to personalize the video Cheeks saw.  I uploaded a photo of him, gave some info for Santa to relay to Cheeks and hit send. Extremely easy & quick. Portable North Pole has several "packages" to pick from. Check 'em out! Portable North Pol

Review: Ranger Rick Jr - Magazine for Kids

Do you have an elementary or even preschool child in the house? If so...HOLLA YO! I am so street, am I not? Anyway, recently I was given an opportunity to review Ranger Rick Jr . magazine. I am so glad I got this opportunity. Cheeks is a developing reader and this magazine kept his interested and was easy for him to sound out the words as we read it together. Not to mention, he learned so much about Lions in this particular issue. Plus other Wacky Facts, like giraffes only sleep 6-10 minutes at a time.  Sort of like me, when Cheeks was little. What's even cooler...if you have an iPad you can get the new Ranger Rick Appventures .  “ Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures” is an innovative digital storybook series that spotlights a different animal in each app – from lions and pandas to penguins and other favorites – as kids explore an interactive photo story, play games, and create pictures, music, and their own tales. The premier Appventure features Ricky Raccoon and h

Sears Cheer Review & Giveaway! Boo-Yah!

I love Christmas. What's not to love? Decor. Fun. Festivities. Food. Not to mention the birth of Jesus. I was in need of some updated decor so Cheeks & I headed to Sears Christmas Shop . This is what we encountered when we got there: A bevy of Christmas Trees. Loved! We could hear music, specifically the Charlie Brown Christmas Theme, so we walked through the Christmas Shop & ran smack dab into this:   See Snoopy on the mailbox, well everytime the mailbox opened, Woodstock was in there & would peek out.  Snoopy & Woodstock were also playing the music. I think that would be great to put out in the front yard.  Don't think that you have to go to the store to get all those great blow up's & trees. No way, Jose... Sears Christmas Shop has a great variety of everything online. Not to mention they have what they call the Sears Cheer Headquarters (psst...don't tell but there is even a sweepstakes you can enter).

The Heart of Christmas: Review & Giveaway

I am a huge fan of Thanksgiving. So much so that I feel it should really get more alone time than it does. You know, not rush from Halloween to Christmas & sort of gloss over Thanksgiving. Although I feel like that I do love Christmas & an opportunity to review "The Heart of Christmas" came to me (along with a giveaway...more on that later) This movie...premiering of GMC in December is wonderful and heartwarming. It's based on a true story (which I am always a sucker for). Here's the story: The Heart of Christmas Dax Ryan Locke, born to Julie and Austin Locke on June 26, 2007, was diagnosed with AML M7, a rare form of leukemia, when he was 13 months old. The Heart of Christmas is set in Washington, Illinois and at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other deadly diseases in children. Told in flashback from the perspective of Megan (Candace

DownEast: Beautiful and Modest

Beautiful and modest. It's as if I am writing about myself. Ha! Growing up, I was always modest in my appearance. No low cut shirts, short short skirts, skimpy clothes in general. It just wasn't me.  For the love of God, I used to sleep with my bra on.  (Trivia fact for when we play "fun things you didn't know about me.") Being raised LDS also contributed to my modest dressing.  Going to church on Sundays we are requested to wear a dress for Sacrament meetings.  The 80's lead to some horrific dresses, modest or not.  Thankfully, DownEast has stylish yet modest casual dresses .  I like to casual some Sundays. What I like about DownEast is that the dresses they have can even be worn on the job.  While I don't see the public in anyway shape or form and feel I should be allowed to go in pj's to work, the owner doesn't quite get that idea so he requires four out of five days we dress business casual. The fifth day is jeans day...yay! Also I

Roll Call

Recently I got a chance to read "Roll Call"...about life in a Mexican Prison, the Mexican drug cartel, you know all the fun & fluff you would expect. I am still in the midst of reading it.  So far, so good.  It takes a bit to pull you in but when it are. in. So to wet your whistle, read a little snippet: Vince wrapped his body around Candy’s in a spoon position. She was facing the other way and he breathed in the fragrance of her shampoo and thought about things. I’ve been out of prison for almost three years; I’m off parole and back in Orange County. Why did I feel so drawn back to this county? Why didn’t’ I just stay in Bakersfield with my Mom where parole and life was so easy? I know why, life is boring out there and I missed this area. Feeling Candy’s heart beating too fast and her foot kicking, Vince thought about being released from Pelican Bay and then High Desert. He remembered paroling with Damon and the
