Backyardigans toys are on sale!


If I had to watch one little kids show the entire day… I would definitely watch the Backyardigans that comes on Nick Jr. They have the best songs on their show and an album (which you should cop by the way… it’s fire).

Anyways, Amazon is having a big sale on their Backyardigans toys… so you should definitely stock up if you have nieces and nephews under the age of five… It is so great!

ThankYou Network… I’m rich b*tch!

Finally received my first ThankYou member reward a couple of days ago! It only took 3 weeks to get here even though customer service told me it would take 6-8 weeks (felt like rebate status for a minute). Anyways… I got the Target $100 Gift Card, with a cute lil doggy sitting in a car on it. It took 10,000 ThankYou points to get that! When I used it at Target today, I only got one thing because I was afraid of getting bamboozled at the counter (maybe the card wouldn’t work? who knows, these things happen!). It was a Target brand (ghetto) bottle of Tylenol ‘cos this one heffer I love is giving me a major headache. 

The point system is really easy to break down. I don’t understand why people would ever retrieve their ThankYou points for merchandise on the site. The isht doesn’t add up and you would be wasting money when you can get it cheaper somewhere else. Might as well get you a gift card! There are even gas cards, but they don’t have one for Chevron so I got Target instead.

Other things you can get…

  • Check to pay your student loan (up to $100)
  • Blockbuster cards for rentals
  • Other retailer gift cards for Macy’s, Nike, Footlocker, Gap, etc.
  • Phone cards
  • Dining gift cards (Quiznos, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Chili’s, Applebee’s, etc.)
  • Best Buy, Comp USA, and Circuit City gift cards
  • Even statement credit


The gift cards come in increments of $10, $15, $25, $50, and $100, $250 I’ve seen some gift cards for like $500 but not at anywhere you would go (and I just know).

My Cranium addiction has been satisfied!

Ever since I played Cranium at Joseph & Erika’s house (on our vacation to Utah), I have wanted to get a copy for myself…. But, instead, I got the TURBO EDITION! Yayers! It is usually $35, but I got on eBay for about $25… isn’t that great? Brand new and sealed too!

Unlike the regular edition, there are Turbo Cards and no dice — the light up 4-pointed star does it all for you. You sometimes even get to choose what color activity you want to do! Batteries not included.

They even updated the moving pieces =) Much better than those block people. I haven’t played it in full yet, but hopefully I can get a game night crackin’ and it’ll be on!

I also got Pop 5, it is Cranium with a twist and with only pop culture questions and the performer gets to choose what activity they want to do— cameo, sculptorades, cloodle, letter line-up, or humdinger. This game is best for people that are afraid of looking entirely stupid in front of other people since there are not actual facts in it, just pop culture information from the past 20-30 years. You can play in big groups too. I purchased this at Amazon for $28 (free standard shipping over $25). Everyone loves this game!

Lastly, I got the two booster packs that were available. I got Booster Box 1 from and Booster Box 2 from an Amazon Marketplace Seller. The first box comes with 800 new cards. The second box comes with 800 more new cards and 4 jars of clay (which I heard dry up very quickly). They won’t cost you more than $20 each.
