How I Make Money Blogging Managing Your Monthly Nut

Weekly Favorites, Gratitude, and Giveaways #128

Weekly Updates

  • Yay for my birthday being at the end of this month!!!  One of my best friends gave me the Antworks gel ant farm that I wanted early (it’s blue gel and it plugs in, so it lights up and you can see all of the ant activity through the gel…cool beans!).  Now I’m just waiting anxiously for my Harvester ants to arrive.  Then I can watch them dig out tunnels and see what ant life is all about.
  • Remember to sign up for my posts via email or my weekly newsletter to be able to enter the separate giveaway that I host for subscribers only every month! Plus, I share things in the newsletter that I no longer share here (hint…what do you think happened to my monthly income reports).
