Hey! Look at what Target went & did…
You can get a coupon for a $10.00 gift card when you make a $50.00 purchase (which is soooo easy- & fun- to do there!) You will need to like them on Facebook & click on the link.
I think the site is being slammed now, so be patient. I also heard about people printing two!

Thanks Coupon Pro
Monday I posted about my Thanksgiving Weigh In.
I am happy to say, even with the crap I have eaten, I was down 1.2 this morning. Still up 1.2 total, but getting there.
Part of my success (if you can call it that) has been my hault on night-time eating. I find that calling it a day after diner can really help keep that scale in check.
Oh, I am also wearing a smaller size jeans lately, very excited. I still have some ‘muffin-top-control-issues’ I am working through, but I think we can get there.
There was a very interesting article I read this morning at Get Rich Slowly where the author was talking about Will Power as a muscle you have to work out. I think this is something I need to start doing (as well as exercising my body… how I can’t fit in a 20 minute walking video is beyond me.)
So, I have decided to cut my long list of goals into smaller, manageable pieces with the thought of completing 1 or 2 items a week… (more on those goals later).
I started with the desk at home. It was scary - apparently I just stick everything there.
There it is in all its mortifying glory (I purposely kept this picture small, devious right?) So, I turned on YouTube for the little one & in 20 minutes, transformed that cluttered ‘desk’ into this:
AHHHH… Nice. And, no, I didn’t take everything & just put it on the floor. I was amazed at how much junk I had on this little table. Most of the paper was thrown out. The books went in the book case & the toys went into the toy room.
Total : UGH! 100,000,000!
Skeptics, listen up! I am here to inform all of you that, officially, in the month of November, I have earned enough swagbucks to get myself five nifty $5.00 gift cards to Amazon.com…
All for basically doing NOTHING! It is soooo easy & only takes about 5 minutes a day…
Have questions? I feel like I am becoming a pro!
I absolutely love this fruit dip… I made the portion size smaller so I can enjoy it for ‘non-special’ occasions.
If you want to make this for a group, here you go:
- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (+/-)
