Weekend Scoop: Celebrations, The Cloud and More

by Kay Lynn

My husband and I celebrated my upcoming birthday early last night with dinner out with my sons, daughter-in-law and grandson.  We had good food and enjoyed being together.

It was a little bittersweet because my youngest will finally be leaving the nest next month and landing across the country.  I don’t know when I’ll get us all together again.

Changing topics…Have you heard about Amazon Cloud?  Everyone gets 5 gig of free storage for music, documents, photos or whatever.  There are two things I really like about this new product.

  • You can get up to 20 gig of free storage with the purchase of any MP3 album for a year
  • There is a cloud player that allows you access to your stored music anywhere using a web browser


Don’t forget to enter my two giveaways running right now.  Enter to win a copy of David Bach’s latest book, Debt Free for Life which ends Tuesday at 5 pm.

The second giveaway is for a chance to win up to $50 in Amazon gift cards and ends on April 15th.  The code should be in today’s feed (sorry it was missing yesterday but I had technical lameness).  Enter now!

Invest it Wisely is celebrating one year of blogging with a big giveaway bash with 15 prizes and the grand prize of $150 gift card.  The other prizes are pretty sweet especially since I’m one of the sponsors.  Hurry and enter before or on April 16th!

Do you still have a landline?  Let Wise Bread know for your chance to win one of three $20 Amazon cards.  This one ends at end of day on Monday.

Mom’s Plans is giving away a $45 CSN Stores certificate.  I recently bought a wood filing cabinet from there and love it!  Entries close on April 8th.

Sometimes our house is so crazy with 3 little ones that I can’t wait for some peace and quiet. But then I remind myself how quickly time goes and that there will soon be a day when the house will be empty and I will be longing for the craziness. I am glad you could have a nice birthday dinner with the whole family.

This is my birthday month too. I am loving all of those free dining out birthday treats.

Thanks for promoting my giveaway!

Happy Birthday! (This is my b’day month too. 😉 – I guess a lot of us bloggers are Aries?! ) I’m glad to hear you were able to celebrate it with your family. Have a wonderful month!

Thank you for the birthday wishes. Please accept mine as well. Hope to see you at the next SoCal meetup.

Does the Amazon cloud allow you to store anything? Like docs and music files? Sounds great. We buy music from them all the time.

Hi Barb,

It’s looks like it’s setup to store documents, music files and pictures.
