An Update, BIG NEWS, and Some Chatter

Hi friends!  I can't believe it's been almost a whole week since I last blogged.  Time sure does fly by!  Summer is flying by too. are some updates on us.

First, if we aren't friends on Facebook, you might not know that I'm pregnant.  I'm just about 18 weeks pregnant and we'll find out the gender of the baby on Aug 21.  Here's a look at the baby from my last ultrasound on June 26.
Second, I am ALMOST done with the Whopping Cough.  Just about 2.5 weeks left.  My cough is only bad at night or first thing in the morning.  I'm still very tired but hopefully, this will be gone and I can get that second trimester burst of energy.

Third, Parker is starting preschool on Thurs.  GASP!  I'm excited but sad too.  He's my baby and I've never had him away from me like this.  I know his teachers and I know that he'll have a great time but my baby is growing up and it's hard.  Brady will start kindergarten on Aug 16 but I'm still in denial on that one.

Lastly, HAVE YOU SIGNED UP FOR SWAGBUCKS?  Ok, I normally do separate blog posts for Swagbucks but I just don't feel like it this time.  Swagbucks just launched a mobile site so you can earn Swagbucks from your smartphone.  You can check out the tutorial HERE.  You can check out how my previous Swagbucks posts HERE.

I've been doing Swagbucks for just over a year.  In that time, I've managed to get enough Swagbucks that I traded in for gift cards to get myself a couple books, an Xbox Kinnect for my family for Christmas, and the majority of what I needed to buy Brady a Nintendo 3DS for his birthday.  I'm guessing that's been about $350 of stuff I got for FREE by using Swagbucks!

But WAIT, if you want to sign up under MY REFERRAL LINK, Swagbucks has given me a special code since I'm a Swagbucks Blogger.  Upon signing up, enter in code: SBISONTHEGO for an additional 60 Swagbucks!  You get 30 just for signing up, but if you use this code, you'll start with 90!  Please use my referral code if you sign up:

Have a great day, friends!
