Grilled Roasted Shrimp with Southwestern Sauce

Happy Friday!

Are you entertaining this weekend for the Super Bowl? Travis and I will probably stay home and cook homemade appetizers and our favorite desserts. We’re not big football fans (Shh! Don’t tell anyone!), but I think we’ll watch some of the game and check out the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

On Monday, I did a TV segment for the ABC-7 WXYZ Morning Show. I partnered with to share tips on how to save money when planning a Super Bowl party. You can watch the video here if you’d like to see the segment, or watch the video below! is a cashback/rebates website where you can sign up for a free account to earn cash back rebates on online purchases you make. Most cashback sites will give a fraction of this commission back to you, but TopCashback is the ONLY site that returns 100% of the commission back to shoppers as a cashback rebate.

If you’d like to sign up for an account on, the process is really simple. I signed up for a free account the other day, and I plan on using the website for my online shopping. My mom’s birthday is the end of this month, and Michala and Elijah have big birthdays coming up, too. She’ll be 16 in March and Elijah will be 18 in April. (UGH! Slow down time!) With all of the birthday shopping I’ll be doing, I could definitely use a bargain shopping opportunity to save some money.

Here’s how you can sign up for a free account:

Sign up and log into your TopCashback account.

Search for a retailer and hit “Get Cashback Now”. The site will automatically redirect you to make your purchase at the retailer’s website.

Behind the scenes, TopCashback will be able to see how much you’ve spent and award your cashback account with the appropriate rebate.

If you have any questions about signing up for an account, just let me know and I can get the answers for you!
