Bath and Body Works FREE Lip Item

Wow did my blog need an update. I woke up this morning to find an awesome coupon in my inbox from Bath and Body Works. Use this coupon when you go to the mall to get a free lip item (C.O. Bigelow or Liplicious) with any purchase. There is also this coupon that you can use to get any free item with a $10 purchase. From what I've learned, you cannot use the coupons together in one purchase. But I usually tell them that I have to make two separate purchases and then use the coupons all in one visit.

Wordless Wednesday

A seal appears with a comforter found in it's pool in the zoological ...

This is just too cute for words...had to share it.  Maybe this is why Jayden will not let his passy go? :)

The Lunchbox Re-Vamped

I have been drooling over the Built NY neoprene bottle bags to carry our kids bottles and things in for a while. But they are always so expensive. Imagine my excitement when I found this adorable lunch tote from Built NY. I was able to get a great deal on it, and I am selling one in my eBay shop. I still remember my first lunch box when I started kindergarten. My, how they have changed! Check out my shop or go directly to the first link to see it!

A Little Bit of Easter

All Jacked Up BBQ Chicken

I've been meaning to post this recipe ever since Wednesday, but my two little monsters have not given me much time.  I made this for dinner, and my hubby loved it.  Plus, it was super easy to make.  So, I thought I would share it.

All Jacked Up BBQ Chicken

*Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce (I used original flavor)
*Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
*Butter (I used about a tablespoon)

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees

-Place the tablespoon of butter in an oven-safe baking dish and let the butter melt in the oven for a few minutes.

-Using the butter in the dish, coat the chicken with it.

-Stab the chicken pieces with a fork or knife to allow the sauce to absorb into the chicken.  Pour the BBQ sauce and keep flipping the chicken over to get the pieces coated.  (I used half of the bottle)

-Cook the chicken for 30-45 minutes, and flip the chicken halfway in between. (Keep in mind that your oven time might vary depending on the type of oven that you have.  I have a newer model so everything cooks quicker)

This recipe would be really good with chicken that has skin as well! Also, I would have taken a picture of the finished recipe, but my hubby got into the chicken before I could! :)

Win With Me At SwagBucks!

I just won a SwagBuck!  You are probably wondering, what the heck is a Swag Buck?  Well, with SwagBucks you can search the web(like you already do), and win points(also called SwagBucks!) to redeem for prizes. In addition to that, the company of SwagBucks will reward you with points for refurbishing your old cell phones with them. This is due to the fact that they want to keep as many old cell phones out of landfills as possible because of the environmental hazards. They will even pay for the shipping to send the phones to them! This will get those bulky out of style cell phones out of your house and free up some space.  If you have any video games lying around that your hubby or kids are not using anymore, send them as well. You can convert those into SwagBucks and get more video games or something for yourself!

Come and win SwagBucks with me!

The Girls Guide to Cars

I tend to neglect my car. I feel shameful even writing that. Don't get me wrong, I love my car. Especially my new vehicle. However, I tend to get so busy inside the house trying(or attempting!) to keep everything clean and tidy. I was pleased to find this article. The website is not too bad either. All you females who refuse to depend upon a man to take care of your vehicle, the site has it all!

You might also want to download their free book while you are there.  It is a complete guide to anything automotive(easy enough for even us women folk to understand).  :)

YouData is my New Favorite!

I've been a member of all of those different types of websites where they pay you to read emails. But, it takes forever to cash out because most of those sites set their payment threshold very high. I was browsing around another mom's blog and I found out about this really neat company called YouData. They also pay you to read ads, and the pay ranges from 10 cents to 20 cents per ad. I know this sounds low, BUT they pay every Friday. What is even better is that the ads are not really ads at all. Instead, you are getting paid to view websites. Once you choose to view the ad and you are taken to the website, you are automatically credited. I have actually found out about some really cool websites just by reading ads for YouData.

The added benefit of this site is that you choose the type of websites/ads that you want to see. After registering for an account, you are prompted to fill out your "MeFile". This is basically a bunch of short surveys that you fill out about yourself. You can choose how much you want to store in your MeFile. However, the more you tell them about yourself, the more ads you will be prone to get. YouData is fairly new and I have been told that they are adding new merchant's ads daily! If you want to donate your funds to a good cause, you split your generated revenue to help benefit the Pink Ribbons Project which you can read more about by clicking on the link. I should also add that there is not minimum that you have to make to cashout, and you do not even have to tell them that you want to cashout. They automatically deposit your funds into your paypal every Friday! Look below for my proof of payment....

Do me a favor and let YouData know that I sent you to their site!

Excuse the Construction!

If this is not your first time visiting my blog, then you might be wondering if you came to the right place.  I'm in the process of updating the background and layout of the site.  So, just bear with me as I'm changing it.  I would love to know what everyone thinks of the new background as well.  And, I should also add that if you have a blog and you want to change the background, check out this site.  They made it so easy!

Free Food!

With a new baby and a toddler, I've found myself buying dinner out much more frequently. Also, Jayden is eating off of the kid's menu now and the bill can get expensive. Which is why I was delighted to find out that many restaurants give special promotions when you sign up for their newsletter. I was already a subscriber to Lone Star Steakhouse but these are some other restaurants who are offering free incentives(yes I said FREE!) when you subscribe to their website:

Wendy's is offering a free $1 item(you receive a $1 coupon in your email)

Become a member of Club Fondue and you will receive chocolate fondue for you and a guest at the Melting Pot

Sign up with Dairy Queen and get a coupon for two "blizzard treats"

Join Chili's Email Club and they will send you a coupon for free Chips and Queso when you buy an entree' (I signed up for this yesterday and I got the coupon in my email inbox instantly)

Thanks to Common Sense With Money for posting these great deals!

Make a Difference Searching Online

I found this great site that allows you to search from a sponsored browser and all of the revenue earned goes towards saving animals. Dogpile is in association with the ASPCA, and when you go to the site, it looks just like Google or Yahoo. But, instead, you are searching for a great cause! Their goal is to raise one million dollars(or more!) by the end of 2009. You can either make the site your homepage or you can download the search bar and be one step closer to saving an animal. Go check out this great site and make a difference!

Our New Arrival

I thought that some of you might be wondering about Silas. I finally delivered on December 9th around 5'oclock. I was induced this time, just like with Jayden, and luckily the epidural took on both sides. We named him Silas Preyton Walker and he weighed 7lbs even. He lost a large amount of weight the first few weeks because he had a bad case of jaundice. He had to be on a "bili blanket" to help get his jaundice under control. Silas is gaining weight fairly quickly now and he is a hardy eater. You can see from the pics how much he has grown from the first to the last picture.

Kids Meal Deals

With the economy making everyone's wallets a bit tight I thought that I would share this link that I found. You can search by city or zip code for local restaurants in your area that host free kids meals or kids meal deals.
