Sweet Sixteen

Sweet Sixteen

Darren Kincaid - Friday, March 26, 2010

Last night college sports fans watched the first half of the Sweet Sixteen. There is one word to sum it up….awesome!

The night started with a huge upset. Butler beat No. 1 seed Syracuse in a tight race that ended 63-59. Then West Virginia stomped Washington by 13 points. They’re now being called the tournament’s new favorite.

In the second games Kentucky beat Cornell 62-45….like we all didn’t see that coming!

Then March Madness got really interesting. This is also where my sleep deprivation comes in for today. I was up way past my bedtime because the Xavier vs Kansas State game went into double overtime! This is the first time since 1997 that a Sweet Sixteen ended in 2OT.

In the end, the Kansas State Wildcats defeated Xavier and I was happy.

If you’re like me, your brackets are way busted by now…but that’s not preventing me from enjoying the games! Can’t wait for tonight. Go DUKE!


Budget Date Nights

Budget Date Nights

Darren Kincaid - Friday, March 19, 2010

As new a parent it’s so hard to find the time to get out and have some fun. When my husband and I do get the chance to head out for a date night, there is always the challenge of how much it will cost.

Let’s face it, things are tight all over nowadays, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t go out and enjoy a nice date night- you just have to find creative ways to do so.

I found this great site with some unique and inexpensive ways to enjoy a night out with your honey! I will be the first to admit that some of these ideas are a bit cheesy, but at the same rate, many of them are great and romantic.
Got an idea that isn’t on the list? Share it!


iTune Giveaway

iTune Giveaway

Darren Kincaid - Thursday, February 25, 2010
If you are a regular iTune purchaser, you could win $10,000 in iTunes.  Apple is giving away this awesome gift card to whoever buys its 10 billionth song.  The milestone is expected to come up this month.

Follow the countdown on the Apple web site.

It’s just like 2006 all over again, when the 17-year old boy from Michigan won a $10,000 iTunes gift card, an iMac, and 10 iPods for downloading the 1 billionth song from iTunes.  And chances are, he still has money on that gift card and probably will for a few more years.

Wouldn’t that be great to be the winner of this???

Super Bowl Time

Super Bowl Time

Darren Kincaid - Monday, January 25, 2010
It was decided yesterday in two exciting championship games what two teams would be Super Bowl bound to Miami.
In overtime, the Saints beat Brett Favre and the Vikings in the NFC and in a not as close victory, the Colts moved past the Jets in the AFC.

Did anyone at Auston Grove watch the game? I’d love to hear what your thoughts were. Personally, I am a Jets fan and was very disappointed yesterday. Now, I’m rooting for the Saints who have never been to a Super Bowl. I always like to see the underdog win. Perhaps that’s why I’m a Jets fan.

I laughed this morning on the way to work when I was listening to a radio station and a caller mentioned that their aunt wrapped an already-opened dvd in saran wrap to make it look like new. That’s not exactly re-gifting the right way.

Check out these tips on how to give meaningful gifts, and make them from things you already own. Tell me, what’s the worst re-gifted gift you’ve ever received?
