My new find!

Are you earning swagbucks?
I found out about this site on one of the coupon blogs I follow. Swagbucks is one of my favorite sites to win free stuff! I just signed up a week ago and I already have a lot of Swagbucks! Whats Swagbucks you ask? Its a site where you earn points (aka swagbucks) and once you have so many swagbucks you redeem them for prizes (gift cards, electronics, etc)! Its so easy and I dont spend anymore time on the computer then I usually do! In the few days I have been a member I have already earned over 300 swagbucks! You should be able to easily earn 900 swagbucks per month and there are lots of people who earn thousands of swagbucks a month! 900 swagbucks can get you 2 $5 Amazon gift cards! So how do you earn swagbucks? Its simple! Here are some of the ways:
Search on Swagbucks (just like searching on google) throughout the day and earn swagbucks (I usually win swagbucks once in the morning, once in the afternoon and once at night). Amount of swagbucks earned per search varies (in my experience its anywhere from 8-11 swagbucks per time) but you can easily win 600 a month from searches. (honestly if i dont have anything to search, I just type in random things into the search box until it rewards me with swagbucks...things like im tired, swagbucks please...stuff like that and it usually rewards me after 2 or 3 searches :) So it really takes no effort!
Take the Daily Poll each day and earn 1 swagbuck = 30 swagbucks a month
Check to see if you have any Trusted Surveys each day and earn 1 swagbuck just for checking. Do surveys to earn even more (I did 2 surveys yesterday and earned 250 swagbucks total) = 30 swagbucks a month plus any from surveys you do
Click through the Swagvucks Special Offers each day (you don't need to do any of them) and earn 1 swagbuck = 30 swagbucks a month
Install the toolbar, each day you will wake up to 1 swagbuck for having the toolbar = 30 swagbucks a month

Enter bonus codes which can be found on their blog
, facebook page, twitter page, and widget. I would say you can get at least 50 swagbucks a week from codes = 200 swagbucks a month

You can also send in random pics or videos to the swag guy and he may reward you with swagbucks.
If you are new to swagbucks, they are offering a bonus of 40 swagbucks when you sign up! You enter codeBackToSchool (bonus code exp 11:59 pm PDT on 8/15). Normally you get 30 swagbucks when you sign up, but now you will get 70 right off the bat just for signing up!!!

And that makes 3!

This past week we said our goodbyes and see ya laters to Skyler's brother Justin. He is serving his mission in Brazil and was suppose leave straight to Brazil July 13th and go to the Brazil MTC. His VISA did not come in time so they pushed his departure date back to July 28th and he went to the Provo MTC instead. I had already planned a trip with my mom and sisters to go to California July 27th so I was pretty bummed his date got moved back and I wasnt able to be there for his setting apart. Thank goodness they didnt move his farewell date back so we were able to go to his farewell and hear him speak. He did such a good job!! Nate and I went and said our goodbyes Monday night before we left out of town. It was so sad to watch nate say goodbye! Nate really doesnt understand that he wont see him for 2 years, so it is going to be hard to explain that to him when he asks "wheres jussin go?"They have become such good buds over the last few months and I know Nate is really going to miss his Uncle Justin! Sunday dinners are not going to be the same without him! Even though we are going to miss him like crazy, we are so proud of Justin and the decision he has made to serve a mission. He is going to be such a good missionary! He has such a good heart and is so willing to help and serve people! I know the people of Brazil are going to love him! This makes 3 siblings Skyler and I have out on a mission! Our family has already been so blessed! Reading the letters you get from them brings such a great spirit into our home! Nate sure does miss his Aunt and 2 Uncles, but they are setting such a great example for him! Thank you Amanda, Ty, and now Justin for your willingness to serve! We love you all and pray for you every night!! Never forget you have a family here that loves and supports you, but most importantly you have your Heavenly Father that loves and supports you! He will ALWAYS be there for you even, no ESPECIALLY, in your time of struggles, loneliness and hardships! Turn to him always and during this time while you are gone away from your family and friends is the time you can and will draw the closest to your Father in Heaven. Make him your new best friend! I promise you he wants to be it and he will make the best friend you ever have! Work hard and we will see yall before you know it!!
