Get 300 bonus SB when you sign up for Swagbucks in May

All throughout May you can earn large bonuses when sign up as my referral on Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, or PayPal cash. 

When you sign up through me this month, you can earn a 300 SB bonus! Here's how: 

1. Sign up using this link 

2. Earn 300 SB total before June 1st, 2018. You'll get a 300 SB bonus for it! 

3. That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned money for hair bows for the girls :)

April Goal Update


2 boxes to thrift store as well as some stuff to goodwill.  I may get shamed for this but some of the goodwill stuff had stains on it.  I'd heard that goodwill has the ability to recycle clothes and I hate to just throw things away.  Plus they are basically just a glorified garage sale for profit.  With my local thrift store it goes to local non profit missions.


  • Peanut Butter Pie.  Rob ate half of this so I assume it was good. 

1 brick cream cheese
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tub cool whip
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together and pour into a pre made pie crust (I used a graham cracker one).  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I do feel like it didn't set super well, but it was still really yummy.

  • Shake n Bake Pretzel Chicken.  I've made chicken before but this was the first time trying this.  I sliced the chicken thin before coating it and it made it really crispy.

  • Chicken drumsticks made with just salt, pepper and olive oil and baked.  Again I've made drumsticks before but on the grill so this was a very simple way and Rob said they were good. 

Paid off
Home Depot card and a good chunk of the Amazon visa

Still right on track with finishing in a year

It was our 7th wedding anniversary so we went to Indianapolis for the night.  We didn't do much there- we walked around, had dinner and relaxed but it was nice.  It was a 4 1/2 hour drive but we had nice weather mostly (as opposed to at home where they had an ice storm!).  We also went to Ikea and spent lots of money.
