Friday Fun with Photos ~ 6/24/2011

Before we get to the Friday Fun I wanted to make sure you know about SwagBucks.  I am sure most of you have heard of them, since they are very popular, but do you know what/how they work?  Swagbucks.com is a search page that pulls results from Google and Yahoo when you ‘ask’ a question {search the web}.  Because of the amount of advertising on the site {all easily avoidable in my opinion} they offer you Swagbucks that you can trade in for prizes.

You receive Swagbucks sporadically during the day for your searches.  Sometimes earning 7 SBs, sometimes 11SBs or even more.  If you make Swagbucks your home screen, it makes it very quick and easy to run your web searches through them.

My favorite prize is the $5 Amazon Giftcards.  I have gotten six since Jan of this year, that is $30 of money from running searches I would normally run through Google!  I also traded in Swagbucks for a $15 iTunes gift card, making the total ‘money’ I have received from Swagbucks {again just for this year} to be $45!

In addition to running your searches through Swagbucks, you can earn 4 Swagbucks everyday quickly and easily.  Here is how;

4 SBs everyday for a 30 day month {say June} equals 120 SBs.  Add to those the SBs you are earning from your daily searches and you may earn 450 SBs a month!  450 SBs is the number you need to trade in for the $5 Amazon Giftcard.  I highly recommend Swagbucks to everyone!

We all search the web… why not get ‘money’ for doing it?

 

And… off my soapbox and onto Five Question Friday from My Little Life;

1. What is your current favorite tv show? Okay… this is the question I suggested, and though I do have a favorite show right now, So You Think You Can Dance, I HAVEN”T GOTTEN TO WATCH IT!!!!

 

I have watched up through the audtions, skipped Las Vegas week {still on the DVR so I can go back and watch those episodes}, and we are now in the process of watching the Top 20 Selection episode.  UGH!  I am having major withdrawels.  I guess it is to be expected with the two little ‘Divas’ though.  And I wouldn’t trade them for anything.  Ms. Diva isn’t quite sure what to make of SYTYCD yet, LOL!  She is so busy watching, she hasn’t figured out if she can dance at the same time or not.

 

2. What’s the worst haircut you ever got? My mom got me an afro.  Think pre-teen with super curly hair and a mullet.  What do you think that looked like???
And no, I am not posting any pictures from that part of my life.

 

3. What was something that you did as a child that you thought you were so cool for doing? Definitly not the mullet/fro thing.  I don’t know that I did anything really ‘cool’ as a kid.  I always seemed to be the misfit.  If I tried to do something ‘cool’ it usually backfired on me.  So I stuck with my horses.

 

I don’t know that I thought I was cool for the horses, but definitly good at it.  I am pretty sure that I thought I was better at it than I actually was until about 12, when I got my first horse {after having ponies} and found out how much I didn’t know, LOL!  Talk about a lesson in humilty.

 

4. Do you have any GREAT frugal family fun tips? If I did, we wouldn’t be working on the debt thing, LOL!

 

My biggest tip is the Dave Ramsey quote: Life like no one else now, so You can live like no one else later.

 

Don’t get caught up in having the latest clothes, daily coffee from the coffee shop, fast food that isn’t good for you anyways.  That kind of stuff.

 

But… don’t ask me about fabric and sewing stuff.  That is trully my downfall in the frugality area.  I just try to make up for it by getting stuff using my Swagbucks {see above}.

 

5. Would you drive across country if you had the money to fly? Yes.  No better way to see the countryside.  If I had the time.  I can’t wait to take the girls camping, and that normally envolves a road trip.

 

Friday Fill-Ins from Janet; arn’t up yet.  I will add them later once they are up.  Here are a few fun pictures of Ms. Diva Playing with her new magnetic numbers from Hoohobber’s.

 

Have a great Friday and a super-duper weekend!
