Increase Giveaway Traffic

For those of you who have giveaways on your blog,
Here are some places to link up and get more exposure.....
Go here for a spreadsheet that
Mommy Snacks made.
There are several sites each day to link your giveaways too.
Just click on the name and then on the blue arrow to the left. That will take you directly to the site. Then you simply sign their linky. Some sites put their linky post up in the morning and some later in the day.
Another site I visit daily is
Mama's Money Savers
She has a ongoing linky you can sign, but if you scroll down further she also has a list of daily sites you can go to. Some sites are duplicate to the spreadsheet, but there is a lot of new ones too.
A new one I just found
Icefairy's Sweepland
She does a great job listing them out by the day too!
Additional Sites
**Grammy Janet's Place put a list here,
it doesn't specify day of the week, but still a great list.
**Audrey's Giveaways has a huge list here.
Hope this helps!
If you host a giveaway linky feel free to leave your link.
I'd love to add it to my weekly routine!

QOTW - How far to Church??

Random Question of the Week.
How far do you drive to Church??

I'm curious because we drive a long way...
We drive about 35 minutes to church.

As a kid growing up I never remember driving any less than 20 minutes. There are churches closer but this is where we feel led to be right now. ((I won't lie I wish it was about 30 minutes closer!!!))
So if you go to church,
How far do you drive??????

Something Fun....Treasure Hunt

My kids are always pretending to dig for treasure!
My 3 yr. old came in last week and said he
was just digging for treasure and
an idea popped into my head.
(It happens often and is sometimes scary!!! ha ... Anyway)

I took 2 big handfuls of change. Mostly pennies,
a few nickles, dimes, and quarters. Only around $2.00 total.
Then I took it to the sand box and buried it all over.
(took about 5 min.)
Then the treasure hunting was for real!!!
They had a blast and dug most the day
only to find around .75 cents worth...
Plenty of treasure hunting left for days to come!
Something fun, easy, and quick!!

Meal Plan Monday

boldIt's going to be a busy week of packing!
We leave Friday for a week long Camping Trip!
We're excited to get away for a whole week.
The only bad thing is that there isn't any internet at the
camp ground. And the closest WIFI hot spot is almost
an hour away. Sooo I'll be scheduling some things next
week but I won't be around to check in!
A true vacation... AHHHHHH!!!
Here's our simple menu this week...
Monday -- Spaghetti and applesauce
Tuesday -- Grilled Chicken, potatoes, and veggies
Wednesday -- BLT's and frozen fruit
Thursday -- Haven't decided -- maybe leftovers to clean out the fridge
Friday -- We're outta here!
Saturday -- Gone!
Sunday -- Gone!
Hope you all have a GREAT WEEK!!
