Trade & Save @ Best Buy




I came across this deal from another post and thought this was a great idea for anyone that has electronics laying around from 2012 that might have value and could use a few extra bucks, so i thought i would share:)
Best Buy is offering the opportunity to Trade In and Save in celebration of our upcoming year 2013.
I don't have a Best Buy near me to do this at but I am sure alot of you do so what better way to start off the New Year 2013 by making some extra money:))
You can trade in your electronics at a participating Best Buy Stores or online – and score $5.00. 
You can click on the link and  head over and find your trade-in value through the links on this page; then, locate a participating store and bring the product in (or,if you decide to do the online way you can just use the mail option)
You’ll then be eligible to receive a Best Buy Gift Card for your item in the amount of $5.00 to be used on anything in the store $5 or more..
One other good thing is if your items have no value they will recycle them for you for free....How awesome is that, this can save you time and money:)) 
Thanks, JoAnna

A Long time waiting

I have been with my husband for almost 21 years and we have been married for going on 12 years:)  We have 3 kids that are all of age except my daughter is 17......only 9 more month!!!! lol anywhooooo  We never find time to spend time with each other like we use to and I said the new year of 2013 was going to bring us together again like before.........So he took me to dinner:))))))) Shocked the heck outta me...lol We didn't go to no place fancy....actually we are rednecks from the country so The 7 Mile BBQ & Grill was right up my alley!!! First time eating there and it was awesome......I got my belly full, had long conversation with my hubby and met the owner and wife that r awesome people.....very friendly i must say:) So if you have a 7 Mile BBQ & Grill i recommend them for dinner one night.......Thanks for stopping by and hope to have you come back and follow........I will follow back, just leave me a comment and i will return the favor!!!!!

15 Day Blogger Challenge Day 2



WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?  SMALL TOWN OR BIG CITY?

I was Born in Xenia, Ohio



Not really sure how long I lived here as a child but then we moved to Fairborn, Ohio which is only 15 minutes away and that is where i pretty much grew up as a child.........My parents got divorced and i went and moved with my Dad in Louisiana for a few years, and then to Orlando, Florida where i went to High School.  Then i ended up back in small town Fairborn with my Mother:))  I don't really consider Xenia a Big City but to some it might be!!

I never did like this town as i got old enough to know about it.....Only reason is because Tornadoes hit this town every chance it can get:(  If you ever get the chance to look it up, Google Xenia, Ohio and see all the tornadoes that have hit there and all the damage it has done.....It's just alwful

I now live in a Small Town.....It''s where my husband is from and I love it here!!!!

Like i said before City Girl Gone Country:))

PINTEREST?



What is Pinterest everyone ask me when i say "R you on Pinterest"?
I tell em you gotta get on there, for me I'm addicted to pinning.....lol Oh come on you know you are too:)~ I think it's awesome, plus it pulls me away from Facebook, ya know the place everyone gets lost in!! lol

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

What are some things you do on Pinterest?

Well you can find alot of new and easy recipes on there, pin it for a later day where you can come back and try it if you like:) I have found a few recipes on there that i have already tried and they turned out awesome!! Plus you can always add your own things to it if need be...you know how to do it:)

Follow Friends from Facebook, Yahoo or pretty much anywhere and see what things interest them or maybe find something about them you didn't already know. You may even find new friends on there that you have never met before.....always nice meeting new people!

Inspirations: Find things on there that inspire you.

Boards: This is where you can name your board and then you add things to it in the category you choose..

On there site it says they have a Misssion!

Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.

I love this site and if your on there please follow me

I will be sure to follow you back:))

Happy Blogging to all!

It’s time to change your clocks again! The old saying is still true, Spring Forward, and Fall Back, so this Sunday, November 4, 2012, at 2 a.m. it will be time to set your clocks back one hour. It’s time to go back to Standard time, from Daylight Savings time. I won't complain for an extra hour of sleep, will you? Twice a year, I change my clocks, but I do a couple of things that may one day save my life, or the lives of my loved ones. You too can keep yourself safe by doing the following things too: Smoke Detector Battery Change: Change out the batteries, or back-up batteries in all of smoke detectors in your home. Don’t forget your garage. Test the detector to make sure it still works. The semi-annual time changes are a great way to do an easy safety check.
Carbon Monoxide Battery Change: Change out all of the batteries, or back-up batteries in your carbon monoxide detectors in your home. If you haven’t installed carbon monoxide detectors in your home, this would be a great weekend to do it. If you have carbon monoxide detectors test them and make sure they are in working order too.

5/22/12

I am very excited to share with everyone that I am going to be doing a review for eFoods. If you are like me then being prepared in a bad situation or disaster is just the way we like it. One fear of mine is not being prepared and having food on hand is going to be awesome and also the beginning of my journey to get things stored for a emergency or a disaster. When a major emergency strikes, imagine your peace of mind having a convenient, just-add-water-and-simmer food supply on hand. And if a minor emergency pops up where you’re simply trying to feed the kids, you'll appreciate the best-tasting, most versatile food in the world. Over 30 years eFoods has committed to serving the community in need and putting people first. Made in the USA I am looking forward to doing this review and filling everyone in on this great company. Be sure to come back to learn how everything turns out..
