Giveaway: Get rewarded this Halloween when you shop using Swagbucks!

  It's that sugar filled time of year again, when kids don costumes and masks, pull their cases off their pillows, and storm the sidewalks in search of as much candy as their little stomachs can handle. (and often times, more candy than it can!)

  So what's that mean for you and me? That feeling of spending (what seems like) hundreds on costumes, personalized candy buckets, and mountains of candy to hand out at every "trick or treat, smell my feet". Lucky for you, I'm letting you in on a little secret, just in time for you to open your Halloween wallet.

 Swagbucks (, the web’s largest rewards site, would like to scare up some savings for your Halloween shopping needs this month with up to 14% cash back from some of your favorite retailers including Groupon, Target,, Costume Supercenter, Living Social and much more.

Also, for all purchases over $75, Swagbucks Halloween shoppers will also receive an additional $5 gift card to the retailer of their choice (or cash!) direct to their Swagbucks account!! (Um how awesome is that?)

To help celebrate this promotion, one Chasing Dandelions reader will win a $50 gift card just for entering on this post and answering the following question: “What do you – or your kids – want to dress up as for Halloween this year?” Please also leave your Swagbucks username if you are a Swagbucks member and your email! Want 3 extra chances to win?? Become a follower of this blog and post that you have to done so, follow me on Twitter and post that you have done so, and follow me on Facebook and post that you have done so! Winner will be chosen on Friday, October 24th at 6 pm ESTand notified via email. Winner must claim prize within 48 hours.

*le sigh* October Goals

I couldn't say it better myself. I love fall, it's definitely my favorite season. I'll take boots, hoodies, and pumpkin spice lattes over shorts and sweating any day! It doesn't help that fall clothes are just so ME as well. I really feel myself in the 50 degree weather ;) But I digress... On to the important stuff!

I'm starting monthly goals. I'm trying to work on me. For a long time, everything was about everyone else, and I did whatever made them happy. While I still live for my family, Z and I have realized that you can't let go of yourself in the process, so we've been working at doing things that make US happy too! One thing that I had stopped doing that I enjoy is reading. There's something about a great book that whisks you away to a new place. I truly enjoy it. So that's the first goal, and there's a few more to follow!
1.) Read 1 book in the month of October.
2.) Finish HALF of my Christmas shopping.
My total goal is to be done by the beginning of December!
3.) Find a perfect fall nail color!
and then move on to finding a perfect Holiday lacquer as well.
4.) Exercise 3 days a week.
5.) One down day a week.
Our August and September were INSANE. Our family needs some quiet time to recoup!  
So there you have it, folks! I will follow up with you at the beginning of November to let you know how it went down!
