Friday is Mega Swag Bucks Day!

Search & Win

Fridays are Mega Swag Bucks Day (MSBD) over at Swagbucks! This means it is the perfect time to join (if you haven't already) OR get your search on as the odds are even better for winning BIG Swag Bucks denominations!

What is it?

Swagbucks is a search engine a lot like that of Google or Yahoo. You can easily download the Swagbucks Toolbar for customized web search or you can do your searching through

To put it simply, the more you search & shop the more you can earn. For example use Swagbucks to search for the sites you have bookmarked (instead of using bookmarks), or for sites you always visit regularly like email, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc. Best yet, it's completely 100% FREE to join & use!

***Just for joining you get 30 Swag Bucks to start!***

By searching with Swagbucks you can earn points (aka various amounts of Swagbucks) to redeem for prizes including gift cards, music, sweepstakes, products, etc. Most recently, I redeemed some Swagbucks for a $10 Starbucks Gift Card. Personally, the gift cards I have to say are my favorite prizes at the Swag Store.

Christmas Shopping Exposed

Earlier I mentioned that I started my Christmas shopping online today. I gave it some thought and decided I would share with you the first present I purchased for Brian. I don't think Brian has ever took a peak at my blog so I hope it's safe to show you! If not, it's his own fault for snooping and ruining the surprise...right?! Anywho, this is what I bought for him today from
The X Rocker Black Video Rocker! I grabbed an amazing deal that I could not pass up. This Rocker is normally $89.99 but I got it for $39.99... 56% off!!! I hope he likes it! I know he points them out all the time when he spots them in a store but never actually says he wants we will just have to wait and see!

But is great, I will definitely be purchasing more from in the future. They really do have something for everyone, from a suitcase to a glass aquarium table...they have it all. I will definitely keep you all informed of my upcoming experiences with If you haven't checked out their 200+ stores yet...what are you waiting for?

The Christmas Shopping Has Begun!

Settling into the new place has not been as easy and quick as I was hoping. But the place is becoming to feel more like home slowly but surely. Finally one month after moving in I was able to figure out how the hook the wireless up once and for all. My office is now all put together, I would still like to get a little area rug and sitting/reading chair to make it just that much more cozy. But it's finally organized and functional.

Brian and I will be hosting Thanksgiving for both of our families this year here at our new place. We are looking forward to it and beginning to piece our menu together so hopefully it will go smoothly...we've never had to cook for so many people before! I am sure it will be interesting to say the least.

This morning I actually placed my first Christmas shopping order! One store I placed an order at online was American Eagle Outfitters (, one of my favorite stores. I was able to get a few things for one of my sisters as well as some stocking stuffers for Brian! All on a really good clearance sale with FREE SHIPPING! Now through 11/14 they are offering free shipping on all orders. You do not need a promo code which is nice so if you have a coupon code you can score even a sweeter deal!!!

Now that my life is slowly gaining some order I will be in a better place to post more regularly. I have been enjoying my vacation this week just relaxing and tying up some loose ends. But I've missed blogging and feel I have been neglecting soo many great you will be seeing more of me here!
