Mommy escapes (this week’s deal tip)

Ahhh, those wonderful days this summer in Tuscany just me and the hubby…(this peaceful reflection shattered by the sound of my 2 year old daughter “Mommy I poop, I poop on de floor mommy”)

Sad, I can’t go back there anytime soon but after the poop gets cleaned up I can hit my elixir of mommy (e.g. coffee) with a great shot of Tuscany in the form of Coffemate’s Italian creme.

Even BETTER I saved BIG bucks on it this week at Walgreens. Check their in-store add then combine the buy one get one coupon they have with a $1 off 2 coupon you can print at

You get two for a total of $1.49 or 76 cents each!!! I also tried out the Mocha Peppermint and LOVE it… another bonus here is they are a pretty much guilt free (low cal low fat) treat! Escape my mommy minions escape!

Stuff It! (my first give away contest)

At the request of the late commers I’m re-posting this… Join in the fun

As promised my first contest is upon us. I’ve always been big on the holiday table thing. I LOVE to cook and think I’m pretty good at it. My family is used to a big ta da for turkey day. This year I’d like to stray from the ‘usual’ fare and put a twist on a traditional thanksgiving dish… Stuffing

Being that I’m in the eat healthier still taste great state of mind, I’d like to see some ideas that pack a big WOW for less than SUPER SIZED fat and calorie values…but I can always fall prey to a good sausage recipe! lol

The winning dish will be featured on our family table, on my blog and the reader who submitted it will get a jump on the holiday shopping season with a $20 Target gift card.

I’ll accept any ideas that don’t include game meats (never acquired a taste for goose liver, very low brow of me huh?). Send your entry to me at I’ll announce the winner on the 25th of November and the gift card will go out that day as well.

Have a happy Thanksgiving

I got goosebumps

Politics aside (ironically), I have to say I got goosebumps voting today. It’s a moving moment to think that no matter what the outcome, tomorrow morning we will have made history in this country. We turned out in record numbers as Americans to exercise our rights, given to us through the honor and bravery of so many since the founding of our country. No matter the ballot we cast we will forever be remembered as those of the era of change. Be it the first president of African descent, our first female vice-president or even the beginings of a call to a system of more than two parties will live in a new America.

On behalf of myself as a former service member (Go Navy) and of those who serve or have served, thank you for voting!
