I've blogged about SWAGO before here and here. They will have a special birthday Swago (like Bingo) that you don't want to miss out on. It's going to be a good way to earn some bonus SB (points) by filling out squares as you earn points for doing things you're already doing online.

For each square you fill in, you get a spin on their big birthday prize wheel, where you can earn up to 2500 points with each spin!  Now this is exciting to me because I don't think they've ever done a prize wheel so I am eager to see how it works.

The best part is that the points you get can be used to get free gift cards to places like Amazon, or PayPal cash!  Fill up your board and then submit your patterns to get even more spins and more chances to win big points!

Click here to sign up and get started! If you sign up through my link and earn 300 SB before March 1st, you'll get a bonus 300 SB!

What I'm Loving This Month

In an utter disappointment to my mom "ironing my clothes" is not on this list.  Sorry, Mom.

Here are the things I am using and loving this month!

1. Cabin Socks

I'm a sucker for cozy socks. I got a pair of these a year or two ago from someone (husband? inlaws? Can't remember. I'm sure you're going to be up late bothered by the fact I can't remember who gave me socks).
Anyway.  My secret pal got me a pair for Christmas. They are so soft on the inside.  Here's a link.  These are wonderful for wearing around the house on cold winter days.

2. "The Underground Railroad"

Released just this past August, I'd heard a lot about this book before adding it to my Amazon wish list and ultimately receiving it as a Christmas gift.  I'm halfway through right now. Warning: there is a LITERAL underground railroad in this. Which, right now, strikes me as stupid but I love the book so much it's still what I'm loving this month.

3. ABC's new show "Speechless"

This half-hour comedy is one of the best new shows out there. Of course Minnie Driver and John Ross Bowie (Big Bang Theory fans will recognize immediately) are great as husband/wife.  The entire cast is fab but Cedric Yarbrough as Kenneth MAKES the show.  If you watch for no other reason, watch for Kenneth.

4. Fererro Rocher 
hazelnut chocolates, best chocolates ever, fine chocolates, anniversary chocolate, valentine's day chocolates, chocolate gift

Have you ever had these?  The ones in the gold wrapper?  If not, high tail yourself to any local grocery store and grab a 3-pack by the checkout lane. They should be under $1.  Be prepared to hide them from anyone you live with!

There you have it, 4 things I'm loving in January. Socks, tv, a book and chocolate.  Pretty much the Introvert's Starter Kit.  ;)

Best Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes

Today we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.  Last week I read a book to some of my students ("March On" by Martin Luther King, Jr's sister) and learned that his birth name had not been Martin.  His father learned about Martin Luther and was so impressed he changed both his own name and his son (MLK Jr)'s name.  Isn't that interesting?  Here's a History Channel link if you want to read more about it.
MLK jr quotes, hate cannont drive out hate, science religion, social justice, racial justice, racial equality, injustice, sojourners, civil rights, civil rights activists

We've all seen various quotes from MLK, Jr.  "Hate cannot drive out hate..."  "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" and so on.  He was such a wise man.  That book that I read to students was phenomenal.  Today I'm sharing 7 of his lesser known quotes.  I found these and made them into graphics. These quotes don't make the rounds on social media as much but I found each of them to be important.
