Heaven on a Stick!

Just had my first Starbucks cake pop (the pink, birthday cake one). Ooooooh! So yummy! Perfect little ($1.50) treat to go with their insanely overpriced coffee.

Expired: Chex Mix "Party Mix-Change" Giveaway!!!

I have a confession to make - I don't really like Chex Mix. Well no, actually, I LOVE Chex Mix, but I don't like the dry pretzel thingies that are usually a large part of the bag's contents. Can you believe I didn't know you can make your OWN Chex Mix party mix from scratch, and that there's a TON of recipes?! And that they're really easy to make?

Well, thanks to the friendly folks from MyBlogSpark and Chex Mix/Sam's Club, I received a huge box containing three different Chex Mix cereals, and a $25 Sam's Club gift card, to host a Chex Party Mix-Change - "a modern spin on the traditional cookie swap with a delicious and savory twist! With several Chex Party Mix recipes that can be made in just 15 minutes and Sam’s Club stores providing you with everything needed to host a fabulous party, there’s no excuse to not call on family and friends for a celebration".

It's ridiculous how EASY these are to prepare - just melt stuff in the microwave, pour it over your Chex Mix cereal, let cool, and enjoy! We made 3 different recipes - the "Original", the "Hot Buttered Yum Mix" (my favorite!), and "Muddy Buddies" with peanut butter and melted chocolate, oooh! There's a ton of other salty and sweet recipes out there, so give 'em a try!

EXPIRED - Congrats to the winner: June!

If you want to get your own Chex Mix party mix started, MyBlogSpark is offering one of my readers the same package I received - a huge box of Chex Mix cereal and a $25 Sam's Club gift card! (Note - if you have a gift card, you don't even need to be a paying member to shop at Sam's Club - just walk in and show them your gc. You DO have to pay 10% extra, though.)

Here's how to enter: Leave a comment below, telling me about your favorite kind of Chex Mix. One comment entry per person, open to residents of the United States who are 18 years old or older. This giveaway will end on Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. C.S.T. One winner will be chosen randomly. The winner will be contacted via email. Please leave a valid email address if your email is not available in your profile. The potential winner will have 48 hours to respond by email or another winner will be chosen. Good luck!

"Disclosure: The Sam’s Club gift card, information, and giveaway have been provided by Sam’s Club, Chex Party Mix and General Mills through MyBlogSpark."

Blue Christmas

Soo pretty! I found this in the December issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine. A miniature tree with blue spray-painted pinecones, silver stars, tiny acorns, and a light blue chiffon ribbon garland. Love the shades of blue!

The best thing about Thanksgiving...

... is the leftovers!
