September Swago Board is here!

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is offering big payouts during on their September Swago Board, which runs from September 10th through September 17th at 9am PT! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you're filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you're thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more free gift cards faster. 


Here are a few tips:

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
     
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
     
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, September 17th to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
     
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.

Show Your Pooch Some Love with I and Love and You Grain-Free Dog Treats

We love our dogs and I will be the first to admit that they are spoiled!  They get treats every single day (sometimes more than once), they have more toys than they play with, and yes... they are allowed on the couch and beds!  So, it's only fitting that we give I and Love and You dog treats a try!

I am fortunate enough to be a Chewy Influencer and in exchange for my honest reviews, my three spoiled pups get special food and treats, delivered right to our door, every month!  Zena (English Mastiff), Thor (Great Dane/Mastiff), and our newest addition Hercules (Neapolitan/English Mastiff) are lucky dogs!  When they see the blue Chewy.com box being delivered, it's almost like they know it's for them! 


This month Zena, Thor, and Hercules got to try I and Love and You Nice Jerky Bites.  In fact, it was a variety pack of 3 different dog treats, all grain-free!  Two were Nice Jerky Bites: chicken/salmon recipe & chicken/duck recipe, and the third was Fresh All Rover breath bones.  Fresh All Rover?  How cute and clever is that?!

Head Back-to-School in Style with Discount Glasses

 This post is sponsored by Discount Glasses.  All opinions are my own.

As parents, we want to give our children everything they need in order to do and be their very best.  When parents think of getting ready to send their kids back-to-school, they immediately think of new clothes, school supplies, immunizations, and sports physicals.  However, I often think that many parents overlook the need for eye exams! 

 Both of my kiddos ended up needing to get glasses in 5th grade.  They were having trouble seeing the board from their desk.  Not only is not being able to see what the teacher writes down frustrating (and sometimes embarrassing), it also cause issues with classwork and homework! 

Once they hit junior high... it was time to get contacts for them as well!  Because all parents know how hard those junior high years can be... am I right?!

When kiddos have to start wearing glasses, often times they feel self-conscious and think that the other kids at school are going to make fun of them and call them names.  How many of us have heard "four-eyes" and "brace-face" called out to kids?  Finding a pair of glasses that make them feel "cool" is sure to help ease their fears.



Westend is an in-house brand of discount glasses for older kids.  They have a wide variety of fun, stylish frames.  I also love their feature where you can virtually try on the frames to see what they will look like on your child's face!

As a child, there are many magical and exciting characters in our lives.  The Tooth Fairy is one of them!  I remember getting 25 or 50 cents when I lost a tooth.  I hear kids at work talking about the Tooth Fairy leaving them $5 and sometimes even $20 for losing their first tooth.  How can the Tooth Fairy afford that?

Your Dogs Will Beg for Bil-Jac Original Recipe with Liver Dog Treats

When it comes to getting a new puppy, positive reinforcement makes training much easier and faster!  Last week we brought a new 4-legged member into our family.  An adorable 7 week old brindle Neapolitan/English Mastiff, Hercules!

We have been using Bil-Jac Original Recipe with Liver Dog Treats for his training and it has been very successful!  When he hears the sound of the treat bag, he comes running!  Once he gets a sniff he will do just about anything!

 

I am fortunate enough to be a Chewy Influencer and in exchange for my honest reviews, my three spoiled pups get special food and treats, delivered right to our door, every month!  Zena (English Mastiff), Thor (Great Dane/Mastiff) and our newest addition Hercules (Neo/English Mastif) are lucky dogs!  When they see the blue Chewy.com box being delivered, it's almost like they know it's for them!

Bil-Jac Original Recipe with Liver Dog Treats are the perfect training treat.  They are soft and easy for our puppy to chew and he loves the taste.  We can easily break them into smaller pieces for puppy training. Our two older dogs also love them!
