Valentine's Day Goodies

I was asked recently if I would like to spread some LOVE. Everyone likes to give and receive Valentine's Day chocolate right? And a lot of you are on diets?? Well these goodies are fruit, so you can enjoy them a little bit - without the guilt.

The ladies over at Mom Central are doing a blog tour featuring My Fruit Rollups. I had the opportunity to customize my own special Valentine's treat, and I have a contest to share with you in which you can join in on the fun as well.

This is what you have to do: leave me your sweetest Valentine's Day message that you have ever received or given in the comments and I will pick 3 people that I feel are deserving based off your message to receive a My Fruit Rollup treat package of you very own. Customized however you'd like it. But hurry, the contest ends at midnight on Wednesday, January 30th.

I assure you that it's really easy. I designed my own Valentine's Day fruit rollup treat using the simple and easy steps on the website. You design your treat using their invention center as a guide, create an online account, fill out your billing / shipping information, a few clicks here, and a few clicks there and your order has been placed. The three winners selected will have their very own chance to do this - for free.

What are you waiting for? Time is running out. And also, those interested that participate and are not selected can place an order on the My Fruit Rollup site and get a $10 discount if you order before February 2nd.

It's a sweet deal, isn't it?

I Was Let Down

Today I was let down just a little bit. Hannah and I were sitting here at the house and looked out the window and to our surprise, it was SNOWING.....

And within 10 minutes, that's right I said 10 minutes, it was GONE. I'm glad I got a picture of it however, this might be all that we get this year people.

Now I know other parts of the US are getting a lot of snow. And I know that they are so tired of it by now that they just want it to go away. Is it too much to ask for just one good snow so I can take the little one out to play? The only place she has seen snow is in Colorado. And I just wish that that wasn't the only place.

I Can't Believe It...

Thursday I was headed to BS's house and thought I would go up Rt. 1 for a change of scenery. I usually take 95 because it is much faster. So I was headed up Rt. 1 and I crossed the Rappahannock River minding my own business and I saw a bird fly down into the road going after some roadkill. My first thought was that it was a buzzard. But as I took a better look, I almost wrecked my car because I was actually watching this kind of bird come down into the roadway to pick up dinner. And then it flew away.

Now I know a few of you are probably thinking that Bald Eagles don't eat roadkill; they eat fish, but I was only 2 cars back from where this bird landed in the road and when it started to fly away it came right beside my car. I got a good look, and I still cannot believe my eyes.

I wish I would have had my camera to try to take a picture but instead I reached for my cell phone to use it and that is when I was startled back to reality as the car in the center lane was blowing its horn at me. The first person I called was SJ. She can tell you how excited I was.

A Helping Hand

Yesterday was a day to help others. I received a phone call from my big sis and she was in need for sure. When she called I was on the phone with our brother so I called her back . She sounded like she was in trouble (like something was wrong). First thing that came to mind was that she might have been in a car accident because her voice just didn't sound right. So she proceeded to tell me that she didn't feel good and that she had a little bit of a problem and wanted to know what to do.

In short, this is what happened.

When she told me the details, all I could picture was her ceiling falling down on top of everything she had in her basement. But once I was there and saw it for myself I realized that it wasn't that bad. Thank GOD.

After we finished moving stuff and had put down plastic, we went out to eat. And we pigged out. It was very good and I don't remember or not if I told her THANKS!! so I will take the time now to say thanks for dinner last night.

And also while I am saying thanks, I know that he is reading and so I wanted to take the time to say THANKS!! to him and his wife for the Christmas gifts they gave us as well.

We are going to see...

I ordered some tickets yesterday because I want to go see Disney On Ice. I know this show has been out for a while now but Hannah was too young to understand when she was younger. So now she is going to see Finding Nemo.

I hope she doesn't get upset because I didn't ask her if she wanted to go but I called to order tickets and the next thing I know I had 5 tickets for less than $100.00! And that was with shipping and all that mess (I guess I'm special like that).

Happy New Year

I just wanted to take the time to say THANKS to everyone that wished me a Happy Birthday. I know I'm a little late. Didn't do much other than take myself out to eat. I treated myself to Red Lobster and it was pretty good.
Hannah had a pretty good Christmas and is enjoying everything she received. She just cant make up her mind on what she wants to play with .
I also would like to say Happy New Year to everyone and hope you had a safe night last night and a have safe 2008.
