White House Easter Egg Roll 2012


I believe this was one of the very first things I posted about last year, and I am truly excited to be posting about it again this year. The lottery for tickets to the Easter Egg Roll at the White House will open on March 1 at 10 am and will remain open until March 5 at 10 am.

From the White House announcement:
The president and first lady announced today that this year's White House Easter Egg Roll will be held on Monday, April 9, 2012.
The event will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling. Tied in to the first lady's Let's Move! initiative, a national campaign to combat childhood obesity, all of the activities will encourage children to lead healthy and active lives.
The White House will open its South Lawn to children aged 13 years and younger and their families.

Details will be available beginning March 1 at

Good Luck to all! Let us know if you snag a ticket!

Swagbucks Birthday Bash!

We are just under an hour away from the start of all the fun, so I thought I would put out this friendly reminder and post the explanation of how it works.

From the swagbucks blog:

While everybody’s getting pumped up for our big 4th birthday celebration on Monday, it seems like it’s the perfect time to explain how the Birthday Bash will work.
It’s a Team Challenge consisting of 5 categories:
1. Search
2. Special Offers/Daily Deals
3. Tasks
4. Surveys
The Swag Bucks you earn for each of those activities on Monday will count toward your party’s total. The party that earns the most will be awarded with a 10 Swag Buck party favor to each attendee who earned at least one Swag Buck toward their party’s total. The other party will hand out party favors of 5 Swag Bucks each.
If you earn the most Swag Bucks at your party, you’ll be crowned the Party Animal, and receive a bonus of 400 Swag Bucks.
By now, if you’re attending one of the parties you’ve noticed the giant pink and green puzzle. Behind that puzzle is the picture of your party. On the 27th, we’ll reveal one piece for you, but to reveal the rest, your party has to collectively hit a series of earning goals, one for each category. When you hit the goal, a piece of the picture is revealed! If you reveal the whole picture before midnight, ALL PARTY BONUSES ARE DOUBLED!
Finally, if you want a sneak peek at what’s happening at the other party, we’ve got exclusive snapshots that we’ll share with you during the day that ONLY your team can see!

I participated in the Birthday bash last year and was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was and how much I earned throughout the day. So get ready, cause the party is about to get started!

Mom is in the Bathroom! LOL


A fellow blogger posted this on her facebook page tonight and I just had to share!

Attention Children:

The Bathroom Door is Closed (for a Reason)! Please do not stand here and talk, whine, or ask questions. Wait until I get out. Yes, it is locked. I want it that way. It is not broken, I am not trapped. I know I have left it unlocked, and even open at times, since you were born, because I was afraid some horrible tragedy might occur while ...I was in here, but it has been 10 years and I want some PRIVACY. Do not ask me how long I will be. I will come out when I am done. Do not bring the phone to the bathroom door. Do not go running back to the phone yelling, "She's in the BATHROOM!" Do not begin to fight as soon as I go in. Do not stick your little fingers under the door and wiggle them. This was funny when you were two, but not now. Do not slide pennies, Lego, or notes under the door. Even when you were two this got a little tiresome. If you have followed me down the hall talking, and are still talking as you face this closed door, please turn around, walk away, and wait for me in another room. I will be glad to listen to you when I am done. And yes, I still love you.
