swagbucks birthday!

Search & Win

I just had to repost about one of my favorite search engine sites. You can earn "swagbucks" when you use their search engine. I always redeem my swagbucks for gift cards.

Today is their birthday and there are lots of swagbucks to be won! Check it out! Once you're a member, you can refer other friends and you'll earn equivalent swagbucks when they do! It's kinda fun. I don't think I've gone 1 day without earning at least 1 swagbuck. And you only need 45 to get a $5.00 gift card. (Well, today they switched the swagbucks, so everything is x10 now. 1 old swagbuck = 10 newswagbucks).

It's pretty easy.. I made my homepage, so instead of typing in into the browser, I just take one extra step and type "gmail" into swagbucks and usually earn a "buck"! Sometimes I don't get one 'til the second or third search of the day. It's kinda random.

so much fun

Playing with blocks is one of my current favorite activities with Avery right now. She now understands the concept of building "something" and has fun with it -- especially when it topples over! She usually asks to build either a "barn," "house," "garage," or "tower." Making spaces for cars or horses to go in or through is a MUST. Just because you have a girl does not mean you can't play with blocks and cars!
