Halloween 2011

Halloween is my favorite holiday to decorate for, well after Christmas. I didn't decorate this year so that made me a little sad. Life has still been a little chaotic so a lot of things have been pushed aside. I don't really like to dress up, but am excited to now have a baby that will be dress-up-able in future Halloween's (so I can live vicariously through my child because that is why adults have children of course).

Roll Over

Miley decided to start rolling over on her 3 month mark this past Monday (October 17)! Here is a video of her. I deleted the first video the first time she did it. It was on accident after I thought I hit record a second time and wanted to delete the mistaken video, but nope it was still the same video of her rolling over, so it was lost! She started rolling over again today, but the past few days decided she was going to be stubborn every time I pulled out the video recorder and tried to capture it. Now we have proof (see Jordan)!

Shopping online? Want cash back?

I love to shop online. If you do any shopping online you should definitely check out Ebates or Shop at Home. Both sites offer cashback for online purchases if you go through their websites. Then you will receive a check in the mail with the cashback you have earned at a regular time. Ebates sends checks out every quarter and Shop at Home does it a little more often than that. Both sites offer $5 just for signing up. Shop at Home does require you to earn $20 cahsback before they will send you a check. I use both and check to see which has a better deal on cashback (for example, if I am shopping at Ebates may offer 2%, but Shop at Home is offering 4%). So if you are doing any shopping online you better sign up! I promise it works and it is a really great deal...DO IT!

Ebates sign-up (GET $5 JUST FOR SIGNING UP)

Shop at Home 

And not to brag, but just so you can see it really works and get excited for it, here is my history at ebates:

Not too bad to get $40 in cash back for things I would already be buying!

Do you use How about gift cards for free...

I have become quite the deal shopper lately. I always had a good eye for catching a deal and have been pretty thrifty. I figure I am going to start sharing some of the deals and things I have learned.

One of my favorite easy things I do is earn Amazon gift cards by searching the internet. Yup, you heard right. is a search engine that awards you "swagbucks" just for searching the internet. So rather than entering I will just search for gmail and click on the link. In the process I can earn swagbucks that will get me cool prizes. My favorite is the $5 Amazon gift cards. There are tons of other gift cards and prizes that you can redeem your "swagbucks" for as well if you are not an Amazon shopper. Since the beginning of the year, I have earned more than 10 $5 Amazon gift cards. It is no gimmick and you just sign up with your email and create an account. Check it out!

HERE IS THE LINK: Swagbucks Sign-up

32 weeks

8 weeks to go (well who knows how long really, but I know it won't be longer than 9 weeks!). The good news is no more problems for mom and baby! We are officially not ready and don't know if we ever will be. We finally have a list of names that I will post later. We of course will probably wait until the last minute on that one, but naming a baby is not an easy job. Now it is stress time, even though I have already been doing a great job at that long before now!

Sugar & Spice

I saw a really cute vinyl saying for a girl's room. I got creative in Photoshop and created my own version that I can print as a photo and frame for cheaper than the vinyl! Here it is...

27 weeks

Well I have made it to 27 weeks. Jordan has survived too, at least I think. It has been an interesting several months. And really tiring. Here are some pictures of the progressing pregnant belly! Sorry one is so blurry!


more bows...

I found time to do some crafty things and made a few more bows. I got the idea from a picture online and got creative with items I already had. I got a box full of buttons from my mom and decided to get creative with them. Buttons are seriously cute!

bows & flowers

With a girl on the way, of course I had to get crafty to start making some girly things! I figured out how to make some bows and flower clips.

It's a girl....

Jordan and I are expecting our first little baby. I am due July 10. We found out today it is a baby girl. Jordan was really hoping for a boy first, but he is very happy even with a cute little girl! I think he is really just worried that little girl will have him buying everything for her in pink and purple, and painting nails or doing her hair in no time. I myself am very excited to buy lots of girly, cute things! And to paint hair and nails and all the fun stuff that comes with a little girl. It is so crazy to think we will have a little Theurer to add to our small family soon, but we are so excited! I will post the ultrasound pictures soon....
