"I'm sexy and I know it"

This weekend was pretty non-eventful.  Yesterday my mom brought Emma and Gianna up and we went to the mall.  We really just went to get out of the house.  I did find two pairs of shoes for Tyler though.  I thought for sure I'd end up returning them, but to my surprise he liked both pair.  Success!

There was a little shop in the middle of the mall where you could get feathers in your hair.  Emma wanted one so bad!  So of course, just ask Grandma, and you shall get what you want :)  Gianna ended up getting one too.  They both got purple.  They are adorable.  Can you believe I forgot to take a picture?  Shame on me, I know!

The best part of my day was on the way home from the mall.  We had the radio on and all of a sudden, at the same exact time, Emma and Gianna both started singing along with the radio.  My mom and I hear "I'm sexy and I know it" come from both of their little mouths.  We looked at each other and just started cracking up.  It was absolutely hilarious.  Those girls are something else I tell ya.  And I'm sure they will be teaching Kyla everything they know :)

Have I ever mentioned how much I love free stuff? 

Unfortunately, we drink soda in this house.  And a lot of it.  I have one Coke a day usually and same with Tyler.  He always blames me for getting him addicted.  He says he never drank soda before meeting me.  Oh well, there could be worse things, right?

So where does the free stuff come in?  For every 12-pack of Coke we buy, we get the code off the cardboard, which takes about two seconds to enter online.  Each 12-pack is worth 10 points and when I'm at 30 points, I get a coupon for a free 20 oz soda!  Sweet!  I have gotten SO many free sodas, haha.

Also, how many of you do Swagbucks?  Ok, I'll admit, when I worked at Alice, I heard of Swagbucks and laughed at it and thought it was really dorky.  And well, you guessed it, now I'm a dork!  All I have to do each day (almost every day, sometimes I forget) is take about 5 minutes to do a quick poll, search, and a couple clicks.  For each of those simple things, I earn swagbucks.  When I get to 450, I redeem them for a $5 Amazon gift card.  Silly, I know.  But I now have $30 to spend on Amazon and soon will have more.  I created a Swagbucks account under Tyler's email so I get double the bucks :)  Call me a dork, it's ok.  I love it :)  Now I just need to figure out what to buy on Amazon...do I go the diapers/wipes route, the Christmas gift for someone route, or the splurge on something for myself route?  Hmm.....

Here's my referral link if you're interested in signing up to get free stuff: http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/AmyK1911.  They have a lot more rewards than just Amazon gift cards.  That's just what I choose to get!  And by signing up, you'll give me some more bucks :)

Hopefully tomorrow I will have something a little more exciting to blog about.  I apologize that I have been incredibly boring the last few posts.  Kyla's two new teeth are finally through on the bottom.  That makes 8 total!  And they are sharp, holy cow!  She almost put a hole in Grandma's leather chair.  We hung out at Grandma's today so we could do laundry.  Hopefully the washer will be fixed on Tuesday.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. I can still hear those 2 little sweethearts singing " I'm sexy and I know it". I swear Emma knows every single word to every single song played on 104.1.

  2. This was exciting. I've never heard of Swagbucks, but I'm in.
    Also, I have a feather in my hair... 2 actually. It's blue and the other is tiger striped. Because I'm a "hip mom", ya know! ha... holding onto my youth, more like it!

  3. Don't forget if you go the diapers/wipes route to do the "Subscribe and Save"! You can cancel as soon as you use it and you get an extra 15% off. Great deal!!

  4. I'd never heard of Swagbucks but now I have to check it out!!
