$200 Million by the numbers

The digital rewards Swagbucks just hit a major milestone – they have given their members over $200 million in cash and free gift cards since 2008! I use Swagbucks all the time to get free gift cards doing stuff I already do online, like shopping, answering surveys, watching videos, discovering great deals, and searching the web. 

To demonstrate how big a number 200 million really is, here are some fun facts:

$200,000,000 Swago PLUS Spin & Win (US)

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is nearing $200,000,000 in cash and gift cards given back to it members. Since 2008, they've rewarded members for things we all do online, like shopping, watching videos, discovering deals, answering surveys, and searching the web.

$200,000,000 is a huge number, and to celebrate they're holding a "Swago" promotion starting Monday, September 11th at 9am PDT!

Living the Good Life at Mystic Dunes Resort and Golf Club in Orlando

I was in Orlando earlier this summer attending a conference and brought the kids and a friend along. Hubby opted to stay home since he and I are cruising to the Bahamas later this year so I invited one of my besties to join me.
She and I travel for business and stay at chain hotels so I guess she was expecting a regular hotel with free breakfast. Ummmm…no-oh. Work is work and vacation is vacation.  I learned a long time ago that hotel rooms are ideal for a 1- or 2-night stay when traveling with kids but family vacations are all about luxury and Mystic Dunes Resort fit the bill.
Mystic Dunes is centrally located near all the theme park attractions including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and you can even purchase tickets at their Florida Ticket Station.  

Check in was quick and the desk clerk was very knowledgeable and shared tips on getting to the local theme parks and even helped us reserve a shuttle to take me to my conference and back.

She provided us with a map and directed us t…

25 Tasty Recipes Featuring Asparagus

Last month we visited a restaurant and Hubby ordered cedar plank salmon topped with asparagus.  The asparagus was the saddest lil' asparagus I've ever seen.  It was overcooked, dipped in some kinda oil and such a disappointment.
Asparagus is one of our favorite veggies.  It's packed full of vitamins K, C, A and folate and can be sauteed, steamed, grilled, broiled or boiled. Asparagus has a rather distinct taste - sort of a cross between green beans and broccoli.  
In my search to find new and tasty ways to prepare asparagus I found lots of recipes online and I am so excited to share them with you.  
Here are 25 recipes sure to delight your tastebuds.   Enjoy!
