Starbucks ~ Buy One Get One FREE!

Why not enjoy your hot summer afternoon and take someone out for a FREE coffee...  a friend, your spouse, or maybe your daughter?   

(heck, you could even save the free one for tomorrow and enjoy it yourself)

Now through July 2nd you can buy one grande iced espresso and get one free! 

Try an Iced Latte, Iced Caramel Macchiato, or maybe a Doubleshot on ice! My personal favorite is an Iced Caramel Macchiato with extra caramel and whip!

**Free beverage must be of equal or lesser value.

It's Back... June Swago!

Swagbucks is holding their Swago promotion starting Tuesday, June 27th at 9am PDT! It's 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.    

The best part is that the points you get can be used to get free gift cards to places like Amazon, or PayPal cash!

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points - if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 550 SB bonus! That's enough for a $5 gift card in our Rewards Store.

My 100 Days of Summer with Peak Health & Wellness Center

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not in the best of shape... and going to the gym has always intimidated me a little (okay, maybe a lot). I have always been very self-conscious about going to the gym because I felt like others would judge me, (I worry too much).

A couple weeks before school got out for summer, I decided that it was time to get in shape.  I decided that I needed to start moving, lose weight, and set some goals for myself.  That's when my 100 Days of Summer fitness plan began!


My family and I were lucky enough to receive complimentary summer memberships to Peak Health & Wellness Center.  My initial thought was... will I really use it?  After all, gyms have always made me nervous.  Was I actually going to follow through...

Last Day of School Party Favors

 Product samples received from Oriental Trading Company to facilitate this post.  All opinions are my own.

I still can't believe that the school year is over and summer is upon us.  How did that happen?  My daughter is finishing up 7th grade, my son 10th grade, and myself another year as a Parapro; working with some amazing children in grades Kindergarten through 6th.

There are a total of 4 of us that work in our room and we like to give our kiddos a little something as we celebrate our last day of school.   The last day of school is both happy and sad for all of us, so we like to make it special for our students with a goodie bags or party favor boxes full of treats!

Oriental Trading recently launched Learn365 and it is totally dedicated to teachers!  They offer the ultimate selection of teaching resources, classroom decorations, organization containers, awards, classroom incentives, and school supplies!

The selection and low prices at Oriental Trading make it easy and affordable to purchase enough fun trinkets and candy to make treat bags for all of our students without having to break the bank!
