Tuesday Goodies...and Ebates!

Today's post is a smorgasboard {can't believe I just used that word} of goodness! Random one might say, but oh well, so be it.
1. First things first, from a few tweets and emails, it's as though there are people out there who are unaware of the holy grail of online shopping that is Ebates. Ebates is a website that you sign up to get cash back when you shop online. There are TONS of different stores that participate like Gap, Land's End, Dell, Ulta--the list goes on and on. Basically, you venture to the Ebates site and then use their link to follow to the other websites to shop. Ebates tracks your purchases and you earn cash back...free money people. I am guilty of forgetting to use it, so there is no telling how much money I could've seen by now. Oh well, I've now put a post-it on my computer as not to forget! Very helpful for all my Cyber Monday expenditures...yay for discounts. P.S. They also show you all the online coupon codes and such, too!
2. Tonight is the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show...is it pathetic that I am so excited for it I could squeal? I just love to see what's coming into the stores {minus the $2 million dollar bra} and if those ladies don't give us all the motivation to eat normally through the holidays, what will. It's OK though, I'm sure I'll be having my nightly bowl of ice cream ;)
3. I've got 1/2 of our Christmas cards addressed and stuffed--only about 40 more to go! I had no idea how many more cards we'd be sending out now that we're married...my hand hurts from all that writing. I've found some cute ways to show off the cards we receive this year though!
4. The smell of mistletoe is now everywhere in our house...Yankee candles, Glade plug-ins, and anything else I can get my hands on that smells like Christmas trees and such--I can never get enough of that smell--it is my absolute favorite!
5. To escape from the scariness of baby books and let my mind relax a bit, this past weekend I picked up "Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang" at one of the airport bookstores and I am so happy I did...it is absolutely hilarious and a fun read--I love me some Chelsea Handler!

  7. I am SO excited about the VS fashion show, too! I've got it DVRed and I'm ready to starve myself all day so that my post-pregnancy body compared to these hotties doesn't make me feel as bad...

  8. I am borderline obsessed with miseltoe/christmas tree candles...They are so fresh and cozy - before I turn on the lights in my house, I light those candles!

    I'm looking for good beach reads to take to Mexico during Christmas and I just added Chelsea's book to the list. I need a book that will make me actually LOL.
