Where have I been?

I haven't written a post in so long that blogger looks a lot different! :) I guess you can't stop progress and change. Well, I got a Kindle (the basic new one, $79) for Christmas. I had already been "buying" free books for my Kindle for PC but it is nice to have an official one. If I had reviewed the features a little bit more, I probably would've chosen an older edition that has the capability to read the books out loud. I've heard it's very basic and only one voice but it would've been handy to switch to that feature sometimes.

I've also been reading some books from the library so look for some book reviews coming up. I've been reading several series so I might wait to read the whole series before I do a review. I also joined Swagbucks, so I've been pretty busy doing that. Earning points and AMAZON gift cards! So I can buy more Kindle books. :)

My family and I went to the Cincinnati Homeschool Convention so I got to meet Crystal Paine from Money Saving Mom. And we got to meet her husband Jesse, who was humbly passing out handouts for her workshop class! I think he also worked the table at her booth. I think my daughters' new favorite from the convention are the EZ Bun(s) we purchased. They've been having fun trying all the different styles and practicing on Mommy's hair (ouch!). :)
