Midweek Randoms!

On a Thursday...still kinda mid-weekish, eh?  :)
  • If you aren't following Every Day Cheer, check it out :) We are going to have some great holiday posts coming soon! I'm loving all the things the other girls post so much! Last week, I shared some super cute kids' jammies on my spree for new ones.  You can see the jammies and info here.



  • We had our first pumpkin patch day yesterday! The kiddos had so much fun. We went as a field trip with their pre-school. They really got into it more this year. My phone died so I didn't get many pics. I actually did take my "real" camera, so I got a few with it.

  • I'm so excited to join the Netflix Stream team! I'll have some fun things coming to the blog soon with that! :)

  • Do you all watch Netflix? We love it around here :)

  • Oh, and speaking of Netflix. Knox & Sloane are LOVING Peppa right now. Last night I decided I totally don't mind watching Peppa if I'm getting to look at the pumpkins :)



  • And for those of you who ordered pre-order nativities in Feb, they are here and you will see them soon! YAY :)
  • I'm still on the hunt for an iPhone 6. No run in town has them and hasn't for a few weeks. I think I'm going to have to give in and order one. I don't know why I like the idea of just going and buying it better.
Hope you all are having a great week! :)

Girl Time

On Saturday, Sloane and I had a few hours shopping together and it was so fun. It also made me realize that I really don't do one-on-one often enough with Knox & Sloane. I want to get better at making a point to spend time with each of them separately.

Our mission was to find her a ballerina costume because that's what she wants to be for Halloween :)

I had seen an outfit, randomly, when I was in Whole Foods last week, so that was our first stop. She loved the outfit. I explained she could do "real" ballet clothes or a costume and she opted for a costume. It was love at first sight with this costume ;)

As soon as we walked in, the florist gave her a rose. Quite fitting since for Sloane Rose :) She loves the mini shopping cart and she loves flowers so she wanted to look at them all.

I basically just let her walk up and down the aisles. She was having so much fun looking at things. She asked me for a few things and, of course, I said yes :) Had I had more room on my phone, I would have taken video because her little walk when pushing that cart was priceless.

We took my mom's car because Brent and Knox were in mine. Brent uses his car for business so he doesn't typically leave carseats in it. When we got in the car, she pulled her costume out and just looked and smiled. It was sweet. We then grabbed lunch and ran one or two more places.

She also decided she wanted me to be a ballerina with her, so naturally I said yes. Did I mention we had a Halloween party Saturday (that) night? All four of us went. Brent was looking for a costume as well, and we already had Knox's. Anyways, I had no idea where to get "grown up" ballet attire. So, I figured I'd try the girls section at Walmart. Thankfully, they had one and it worked. I opted for black with black tights. Sloane had a pink tutu that I could get over my hips. It was rather tight, but I made it work, too. I actually wore two because both of them were really thin ones. Basically I feel like I looked ridiculous, but it was worth it ;)

OH, and I don't think I've posted since Sloane got glasses! She's not wearing them full-time at this point, but I'll do a post on that soon.




Hope you all had a great weekend!

iMyne

I'm so happy to know about iMyne and share it with you!
{.....and keep reading because it's awesome and there is a great deal for you involved!}

I haven't heard of any other sites doing what iMyne is doing and I think it's a great concept.


I know for several years there have been sites where you can earn cash back, but to be honest, I often forget to use them!

So, no only does iMyne offer cash back from your purchases, from hundreds of major retailers, but it also lets you select the charity of your choice to donate to. You can either cash out the earnings or have them automatically sent to the charity. And when I say either, you can do both....you just change it when you want to!

My immediate thought about the website was that it was extremely easy to navigate and find what I was looking for. This was my first viewing of the dashboard home page.


For now, I selected Beads of Courage as my charity to donate to. It's a charity that is very near and dear to our hearts. {You can read about that here, here and here.}

And because I'm a visual person. This is when Beads of Courage joined our family.


I like that you can donate via iMyne. I like that it's optional. Not only do I forget about "cash back" sites, but I often go too long without making charitable contributions. Charities won't exist without our support, so I think Imyne is a great tool for them.

It's easy to shop, earn and donate all at once on iMyne There is a plugin that you can put on your desktop or you can select to use it or you can search for a particular store on the site. The plugin works on my phone and smart devices as well.

For a limited time, when you sign up with iMyne, if spend $100 or more at RueLaLa, Neiman Marcus, Target, Banana Republic, Priceline and Toms and iMyne will reward you with a $40 shopping bonus! **Eligible purchases of up to $100 earn 40% cash back. Earn additional cash back of up to 6.0% for purchases of more than $100.

You will also have a referral link that you can share with friends and family so they can sign up. This will help them earn, donate and it will also help your iMyne community grow. The more money you earn for charity and yourself.

Start iMyning! :)

Use the like to redeem your special, limited time iMyne offer by 10/31/14.
