2011!!! Really?!?

Time truly does FLY BY! It's almost 2011. You're kidding me. I just turned 33. How the heck did that happen?!? My son will be 9 next month. No way. Life is passing by and I'm left sitting here in awe.

Every time a new year approaches, I am reminded of how lightening fast childhood is. My kids were just babies in my arms yesterday. The thought of them leaving home someday kills me. I know, I know...it's years away, but I can't help thinking about it. Maybe I can talk them into living with me forever. Slim chance, I know.

I want 2011 to be successful, breathtaking and just plain fun. I hope you all have a wonderful year ahead. Spend time with your kids. Make them laugh. Help them grow up to be the best they can be.

Make. Every. Day. Count.

I'll be taking my own advice in the new year. I want nothing more than to see my kids have their best year yet.

Best wishes to all of you! Now start off the new year with a bang!

If you're looking for running gear, you must check out what Brooks has to offer. I was sent some awesome gear from this company and I am a huge fan of their apparel. I just know I'm getting a top quality product when it comes to the fit and feel.

Pringles: Kringle-Spiced Pringles Cookies

My kiddos really love Pringles. My hubby likes to sneak some in, too! The holidays may be coming to an end, but that doesn't mean delicious holiday recipes like the one below can't live on!

Kringle-Spiced Pringles Cookies by Chef Kyle Shadix

Yield: 2 dozen sandwich cookies
  • 1 can Pringle's “The Original”
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fruit preserves, raspberry or mixed berry
  • 1/3 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven at to 350 degrees and place Pringles, flour, baking soda, and spices in a food processor, and puree until the consistency of corn meal; set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until slightly fluffy.

  3. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix for 30 seconds.

  4. Pour the Pringles spice mixture into the bowl and mix for 1 minute; place dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

  5. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, and bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.

  6. In a small bowl, combine fruit preserves and ginger (if desired, ginger is optional); spread 1 teaspoon onto a cookie, and top with another cookie. Instead of crystallized ginger can swap out 2 teaspoons of powdered ginger to the jam.
So grab your kids and a can of Pringles "The Original" - you'll all be enjoying delicious cookies in no time at all!

Wacoal, a leading luxury intimate apparel brand, is known for their superior comfort, quality and technology. Women of all shapes and sizes depend on Wacoal and the company was recently selected as the #1 selling brand at department stores. Whether you’re looking for the perfect t-shirt bra, shapewear to go with your holiday dress or something sexy, Wacoal has it all!

I am a huge fan of Wacoal now. I'm always finding an "almost" comfortable bra. I've finally found my all-time 100% comfortable bra!!! Thrilling! I couldn't stop telling my hubby about it. Like he cared...

I received the Custom Contours T-back Underwire Bra. I do best with front close bras. To me, they're just easier to put on and I prefer the fit better. Nothing feels awkward about this bra. It's neutral in color so I can wear light-colored clothing and not worry about my bra showing through. It provides nice support without feeling like I have anything on. The cups are lightly lined and provide great shape without adding a size. This bra also came with clear straps.

FIVE lucky readers will get to choose the bra of their choice from Wacoal!

The Strawberry Toaster Pops were loved by my kids. They are lighly sweetened with California strawberries and are non-dairy and low in fat. Now I purchase these for after school snacks and for a great breakfast.

I LOVE their Cheese Pizza Snacks! I could eat these all the time for a snack or a make it a meal. You get a generous portion of snacks that taste delicious! The snacks feature a taste organic crust filled with reduced fat mozerella cheese and organic pizza sauce. I would not have guessed these were lower in fat.

I'm a big burrito fan and I really enjoyed their Been & Cheese Burrito. The organic flour tortilla is wrapped around organic pinto beans, rice and vegetables in a mild Mexican sauce with added cheddar cheese. Oh yum, I'm already getting hungry for lunch just thinking about it.

All of Amy's Kitchen products are natural and organic. Vegetarian or not, they're products are enjoyed by all. I'm a huge fan and will continue to purchase their products not only for their health benefits, but because they are full of flavor and taste great.

Conair: Infiniti Cord Keeper Hair Dryer Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - deanna #17!

I am loving my new 1875 watt Infiniti Cord Keeper Hair Dryer from Conair! The retractable cord feature is brilliant. I love that it doesn't get tangled up in my hair appliance drawer. With the touch of a button, the cord retracts into the handle in an instant.

The tourmaline ceramic ionic technology helps smooth the cuticle layer leaving me with silkier, shinier hair. The high torque DC motor gives it maximum drying power to dry my hair in a timely manner. This saves me time and gets me to where I need to be faster. This hair dryer also features three heat settings - cool, warm and hot and two speed settings - high and low. Also included is a diffuser and concentrator.
And let's face it, the hot pink color is really cute.

One lucky reader will win their very own Infiniti Cord Keeper Hair Dryer!

Plow & Hearth: $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - Sweeter the berry #242!

Plow & Hearth never fails to impress me with their items for the home. I know I can always find a gift for someone special from this company. I love what they have to offer and I would like to share two of my finds with you.

I received a really great product called the Wet Pot. This has to have been made just for me as I always forget to water my plants! My husband likes to say I have a black thumb because I kill just about every houseplant I buy.

The Wet Pot has come to the rescue and I adore it. Now my plants can live in peace and get the water they deserve! If you know someone who needs as much help as I do in the plant watering department, be sure to get them one of these. Trust me, they'll thank you for it!

Modern European design and high-quality materials are the hallmarks of our self-watering Wet Pots. A fine-grain terra cotta pot rests inside a thick-walled glass container. Add water to the glass container, and the unglazed terra cotta takes water in gradually - not too much, not too little. Clear glass lets you see when to add water.

It's been raining cats and dogs where I live and you know what that means - muddy feet and dirty floors!

The Rectangular Waterhog Doormat has been a blessing in disguise. Now my family isn't tracking in muddy shoes all over my entryway. This mat also works great for wet dog paws, too.

True to its name, the Waterhog™ Doormat drinks up water, mud and snow to keep your floors clean and dry. The unique ridged surface effectively removes dirt and moisture from shoes and boots. Place this mat indoors or out; it's made of anti-static, 100% polypropylene, so it dries quickly, won't fade or rot and vacuums or hoses clean. The special Tri-Grip™ cleated rubber backing keeps it in place.

Available in two different sizes: Medium approx. 21"W x 31"L and Large approx. 34"W x 52"L

Colors: Medium Blue, Bluestone, Brown, Charcoal, Evergreen, Red

Styles: Fern, Basketweave, Cable Weave (shown), Dogwood, Leaves, Stained Glass

One lucky reader will win a $50 Gift Certificate from Plow & Hearth!

MANDATORY ENTRY: Visit Plow & Hearth and tell me how you would spend your $50.

HearthSong: $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - michtuck #355!

HearthSong always amazes me with their amazing products for kids. Their slogan says it all - Toys you can feel good about giving. I couldn't agree more!


I received two very cool toys for kids. The first is their Magnet Penny Magic Kit. My son could not stop playing with this when it arrived and he still can't put it down.

Build a pyramid of coins that floats in the air; create sculptures of pennies connected edge to edge (impossible!); make a penny spin so fast you can barely see it!

How? With this kit's two super-strong magnets, 24 newly minted authentic British coins (and US penny), and kids' curiosity.

The 54-page instruction booklet includes 32 astounding feats, plus amazing info about magnetism. Sponsored by the Institute of Physics, the Royal Institution, London. Carrying case included.

For ages 8 to adult.


We've all had our fair share of time with this magical toy. It's been a great conversation piece in our home during the holidays. Everyone loves it!

I also received the beautiful Jellyfish Aquarium. My daughter loves this! It's the perfect size to place on a desk. She has it in her room and sometimes uses it as a nightlight. This is also another product from HearthSong that is a real attention grabber!

You don't need to visit a marine exhibit to see the graceful movement of a jellyfish. Set up this mini-aquarium at home and watch as your faux jellyfish mimic the movement of the real things.

Simply add water and a dab of dish detergent to help them glide. Includes 3 delicate faux jellyfish that dance up, down, and around, while ever-changing colored LED lights create a wonderful glow.

Makes a soothing night-light or desk accessory. Designed with an on/off switch and 4-hour auto button. Requires 2 AA batteries (not included).

Recommended for ages 8 and up, but my daughter is 6 and she is old enough to take care of it. The aquarium measures approximately 10"L x 7 1/2"W x 2 1/2"H. Set up was a breeze and we had it up and moving in no time!

One lucky reader will receive a $50 Gift Certificate thanks to HearthSong!

Facebook...help...

Alrighty, I now have at least 25 likes on Facbook and I'm ready to set up my username. However, when I go to do it, I receive a mobile phone verification notice. I clicked on it, read it, but can't seem to find where I need to submit my mobile phone info. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?!?

I see this:

Before you can set your username, you need to verify your account.
If you have a mobile phone that can receive SMS message, you can verify via mobile phone. If not, please try to register your username at a later time.

I click "Continue" and then there is a box to enter the confirmation code that was supposedly sent to me.

Help!

You've gotta love Pediped!

191 Unlimited: Stylish Shirts for Stylish Men


191 Unlimited Vertical Shirt – Stylish long sleeves shirt, grey pinstripes with contrast fabric inside cuffs, shoulder epaulettes, square buttons, and red stitching adorning the button holes. The best way to describe this shirt is to take a slim fit dress shirt, add a little ruggedness, mix in some stylish details without going overboard and you get the 191 Unlimited Vertical Shirt. Definitely not a big box store shirt, this is a great casual shirt to add to your wardrobe.

I’m big on having clothes that fit me perfectly and this shirt kept me from a tailoring bill. I’m the type of person who visits a local tailor frequently each time I get a new long sleeve shirt or jacket, because I already know that I’ll have to take it in around the waist for a more tapered look. The Vertical shirt from 191 Unlimited comes tapered at the waist, but not too tight. Last, but not least, the cotton fabric looks very durable and looks like it will withstand numerous washings.

Bottom Line – You will look good wearing this shirt if you have a slim build. An athletic build will also look good in 191 shirts, but ensure you get 1 size larger than usual. This is what I did and it fits me perfectly! Trust me, go to a party wearing this shirt and you will NOT see another person wearing the same shirt as you… unless it’s a party filled with hip and stylish people then there might be a chance.

CamelBak: Groove

CamelBak Groove – Finally, a portable water filter in a 20 oz. bottle! I have always been impressed with Camelbak products and their innovation, but the NEW CamelBak Groove takes the cake. I put filtered water into water bottles to drink when I’m out and about running errands, working, and exercising. Many times, I run out of water and end up purchasing a bottle of water. I bring water from home to save money and with the CamelBak Groove, I will definitely be saving more money on water.

To use the CamelBak Groove, all you do is add tap water into the bottle, firmly screw the lid closed, lift up the Big Bite Valve, and sip. Ensure the bottle is upright; it’s not meant to tilted to drink like a regular water bottle. The CamelBak Groove is 100% BPA free and dish washer safe, but you will have to remove the Fresh Filter carbon filter before putting it into the dish washer.

The filter will last up to 300 refills on the bottle which equates to a savings of $425! How so? Take 300 refills X $1.50/20oz bottled water = $450. MSRP on the CamelBak Groove is $25, so $450 - $25 = $425. I’d say this bottle is a great investment! What will you do with the extra $425 you will be saving?

Icebreaker: Aspiring Hood Coat

Icebreaker Aspiring Hood – This jacket is perfect for someone with an active lifestyle and cares about high quality clothing. Stylish, luxurious, and versatile; this is the jacket I have been grabbing as I run out the door instead of my other coats. Another wool coat I own is 3 times thicker, but the Aspiring Hood is just as warm. Made from 100% merino wool, this jacket is soft and very comfortable. The best thing about this jacket is the cut and how well made it is. It reminds me of my favorite blue blazer, only it can be worn during strenuous activity. You can wear a button down sports shirt under this jacket and still look good.

First, I was hesitant to run in this jacket. I thought it looked too nice to be worn during exercise. When I finally took it out for a run, I noticed how well the jacket kept me warm and at the same time kept me dry. Merino Wool’s physical traits allow the jacket to trap warm air in its fibers while drawing liquid from your skin and to the surface of the garment. Once on the surface, the liquid quickly evaporates into the atmosphere. Furthermore, unlike polyester which also wicks moisture, I noticed that I still smell fresh after a workout in my Aspiring Hood. When I wear polyester, I quickly start smelling funny (according to my wife), but she does not seem to complain when I am wearing my Icebreaker jacket.

Last but not least, Icebreaker is a company one can be proud of. They support wool farmers from New Zealand and you can trace your jacket’s wool to the source. On the jacket, there is a tag is imprinted with a BAACODE. Enter it on their website and you will be able trace the origin of your jacket. Lastly, Icebreaker ensures that the sheep that they source their wool from are well taken care of and not abused in any way. Happy sheep produce quality wool and Icebreaker has definitely been keeping their sheep happy.

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner - Ashley #30!

We all need a greener world. I was fortunate to receive items from Ecoland. We love to own organic clothing in my home. It's better for the Earth and we love to support environmentally-friendly businesses.

Their Women's hi-cut brief 2 pcs/pack is a great pair of briefs. I like to change things up. I own many different styles of intimates and really love the feel of these. Sometimes you really do want comfort over sexy underwear.

Get these in their Women's hipster 2 pcs/pack as well.

My husband received their Men's V-neck T shirt. This shirt has a nice weight to it and is extremely soft, just like the briefs. This tagless shirt works great as a layering piece and made from 100% organic cotton.

One lucky winner will receive a pack of briefs or hipsters!
