I love the HGTV shows that help you spruce up your home on a small budget. Those fabulous designers can take a plain room and make it pop with just one color piece.
The CB2 family is excited to partner on their latest furniture collection with husband-and-wife design duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz. This design team offers bold, colorful style as seen on their popular TV home design shows. Their eye is playful, their mix of modern with vintage is fresh and unpredictable.
Their latest CB2 and Novogratz Collection debuted at the beginning of this month and was inspired by their vacation home in Brazil. It features pops of hot color mixed into warm wood, as well as range of items and price points, from the whimsical Luli Table Lamp at $129, to the sophisticated, modern Dupla Credenza at $499.
I love how each piece is full of vibrant color. I could imagine a piece like this in a solid white painted room or a room that has tan walls. This chair could definitely give an amazing blast of color into a rather drab or dull room.

Are you coming too? I sure hope so!
Be sure and check out these videos that are listed here on the 7 different types of potatoes. Maybe this will give you and me some inspiration for questions to ask and ideas for new recipes. Those purple potatoes look interesting.

What would you consider to be the epic playdate? For me, I think anywhere that my family and I could have fun together — laughing and exlporing, having one adventure after another — that is the total epic playdate for me. I think I would love to take my kids (even though they are almost grown) to Disneyworld! That would be the place where we could find a new adventure. We’ve never been before, and I know how badly my kids want to see Mickey and Buzz Lightyear. Me? I want to meet all the princesses!

Who would have thought a vegetable company would be creating their very own line of yummy chips? Way to go Green Giant! Their little surprise hit my doorstep and I was immediately drawn to the Zesty Cheddar chips. Opening the bag reminded me of my favorite cheddar triangles that I refuse to eat because I always eat SO many of them. With the first bite I was in heaven. Nothing about this chip tastes like a veggie. The Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – Zesty Cheddar Flavor are made with real vegetables, 17 grams of whole grain per serving (48g are recommended daily), and are naturally flavored. Total win in my book.
The great thing about the new Green Giant Veggie Chips is that you can allow yourself to enjoy and indulge just a bit without feeling guilty at all. It is a great tasting snack that you can feel good about. And the sweet potato chips with sea salt? I got ONE out of the whole bag because my entire family loved them — even my “I’m never eating veggies” son. They are that good! The Green Giant™ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips – Sea Salt Flavor are made with real sweet potatoes and made with 14 grams of whole grain. Plus, they contains 40 percent less fat than regular potato chips!
What’s your talent? Green Giant wants to know!
Visit the Green Giant Facebook page and share your special talent. I have a special talent that not many people know about — I sing. I’ve been singing for the last 13 years at church and I love doing it. I surprise a lot of people with my voice . So — what’s yours? Go share with the folks at Green Giant.
While you’re at it, grab this coupon here for .85 cents off a bag of the new Green Giant Veggie Chips.

I am an avid drama watcher on television. Yes– I will admit it, I am a t.v. junkie. Some of my favorite shows are Army Wives, Drop Dead Diva, Biggest Loser, The Pioneer Woman, and my newest favorite — Nashville! When we moved to where we are now, our only option for television was Satellite and it was a no brainer that we were going to choose Dish Network. I love being able to use my DVR to record my shows, and now with the Hopper™ — I will never miss any of my shows again!
Not only do I have shows that I love to watch, but hubby also has his favorite shows — and if any married couple is like we are, most of our shows come on at the same time. With my old DVR we could only record 2 shows at a time, which sometimes left one of us to sacrifice the recording of our shows. I cannot tell you how many countless times I have gotten aggravated because I had to miss my favorite show on tv.
With the Dish Hopper, you can record up 6 different shows at the same time during primetime TV on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC (PrimeTime Anytime). Now, I no longer have to fuss with him over what gets recoreded and what does not. Learn more about the Hopper here.
Annother great thing that I love about the Hopper is that I can watch my shows anywhere –even without internet connection. I fly a lot now for work and most of my flight time does not involve a movie on the plane, so now, if I am bored — all I have to do is watch my recorded shows. Really — this is like THE best thing since sliced bread.

Growing up, I was a girl who never liked to try anything new. If you set something in front of me that I was unfamiliar about — I would push it away and turn my nose up at it.
The older I got however, I began to branch out and try new things. One of those things is Avocados. It has become one of my absolute favorite go to healthy fats. I eat it on burgers, in guacamole, chopped up in a salad, and I use it in desserts as well.
Here are 5 of my favorite uses for Avocado:
Use avocados in place of butter in desserts
By using avocados in place of fats in a dessert dish, like brownies for instance, then you can cut the calories. It adds a delicious flavor, but helps you stay healthy.
Create delicious salad dressings
You can create homemade dressings right in your kitchen by adding avocado to some regular pantry items.
Avocados are great to smooth your skin and make masks for your face.
Chopping Up Avocado for salads
By chopping up avocados, you can add them to salads in place of oils and such to give that yummy healthy fat that you need.
Make Yummy Dips
Check out my cool Avocado Gear from Cafe Press
I recently purchased the cool plate from the Avocados from Mexico Cafe Press store. Avocados from Mexico has their very own CafePress store where you can purchase Avocado’s branded shirts or gear that will help you showcase your love for the delicious, green fruit like me
Do you love avocados as much as me? During the month of February, you can share your passion for avocados with your family and friends via the Facebook App “Share the Avocado Love”. Check it out here: Share the Avocado Love Facebook app. I sent an Avocado Valentine to my sweetie He knows just how much I love them!
Join the Twitter Party!

I love the Muppets so much! When I got this email yesterday I was SO excited to share it with you. Looks like the Muppets are at it again. I grew up on this show, so anytime I see that Disney is bringing them back to the big screen, I want to hug their necks! Here are the first look images for Muppets Again.
This picture above makes me SO happy because I love Ricky Gervais. He is so funny
About the Muppets…Again
Disney’s “The Muppets …Again!” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
Disney’s “The Muppets … Again!” is directed by James Bobin and produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Bobin co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller, who is also executive producer with John Scotti. Featuring music from Academy Award®-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie, “The Muppets … Again!” hits the big screen March 21, 2014.

When it comes to artificial-substance free, organic cleaning services, there aren’t many choices available. Most companies don’t have the foresight to perfect organic cleaning techniques that are friendly to the environment. That’s why it’s so refreshing to see one finally enter the carpet cleaning scene– Green Choice Carpet.
Green Choice Carpet is new to NYC but already making its mark, as a green alternative to traditional carpet cleaning. There are some drawbacks to selecting Green Choice, but for the most part the benefits outweigh the costs, and organic cleaning is always a good option regardless.
One major advantage of Green Choice is same-day service. Instead of waiting days for your service, you get your cleaning on the same day that you call. This is especially useful for busy NYC residents like myself who need to schedule all cleaning services tightly.
The other major attraction of this service, of course, is the set of organic cleaning compounds used in cleaning your rug. Instead of using toxic arrays of chemicals and cleaners, Green Choice uses specially prepared unique organic cleaners to flush toxins and dirt out of a carpet.
Now that this environmentally safe and earth-friendly option is available, other companies are going to need to step up their green policies to match Green Choice. Select this cleaning service if you absolutely need a toxin-free, organic cleaning solution to a stained or dirty carpet.
Robert is graduating this year. WOW. I cannot believe that my baby boy will be done with school period. In fact, he pretty much has become a full time hand with his dad learning the family business. For him, he has decided he would rather pursue other options and not go to college. And ya know what? I am totally okay with that. If your teen wants to go to college though, you might want to check into private scholarships as a way to save money.
What is a Scholarship?
A scholarship is a grant of money designed to pay for the costs associated with higher education, such as college, graduate school, or professional school.The best thing about college scholarships and grants is that you never have to repay the money that you’re awarded. Scholarships are generally awarded based on financial need or merit.A private scholarship is a grant given to a student by any other individual or organization for any purpose. Mos times, private scholarships have very specific criteria for eligibility, such as the student is a member of a certain race, religion, gender or field of study, while others have no specific guidelines. Generally a student must have displayed superior performance in some area–such as athletics, academics, volunteer work, essay writing or other extracurricular activity–to secure a private scholarship.
What Kind of Student Can Get a Private Scholarship?
Here are some of the factors that typically boost an applicant’s chances:
- Higher grade point averages
- Higher ACT/SAT scores
- Majoring in engineering or science
- Attending private high school
- Participating in community service

I use Retail Me Not like it’s my third arm — especially when I am shopping for a great deal. I discovered this little beauty when I was working at JC Penney. There was always a $10 off coupon on there somewhere, and these always came in handy during the $10 off $25, plus they could be combined with my store discount, and my rewards points, so I always saved these for when I needed to do some mega shopping. Because I used all those items combined, I could walk out with 3 bags of clothes (enough to outfit my daughter for 2 years) for around $50-$60.
RetailMeNot.com, the largest online coupon site in the United States, recently announced the launch of the company’s latest innovation – a location-based coupons app for iPhone. Version 2.0 of the app includes geo-fencing capabilities that enable consumers to receive local coupon notifications for nearby stores at hundreds of shopping malls across the United States. Get the iPhone app now and Save When You Want, Where You Want!™
Features of the Updated RetailMeNot Coupons app for iPhone include:
- Location-based coupons available at more than 500 geo-fenced shopping malls across the country by Black Friday
- Map services that identify nearest store locations to redeem in-store coupons
- Simple, easy-to-use interface with curated “Hot Deals” from popular stores and access via search to RetailMeNot’s best online and in-store coupons from thousands of merchants
- Ability to save coupons for later use, helping consumers organize their shopping excursions
- Coupon expiration alerts that message you when your saved coupons are about to expire.
- Push notification to consumers of relevant coupons
- Ability to add RetailMeNot coupons to Apple’s Passbook
- Supported on iPhone 5 and iOS 6: optimized for new screen size and features.
How the App Works:
A geo-fence is a virtual perimeter set around a physical retail location.. When functionality is enabled, a consumer entering a geo-fenced location, like a shopping mall, with the RetailMeNot coupons app is immediately alerted about relevant offers nearby. Coupons can also be added to Apple’s Passbook for better organization, storage of offers and later use at the point of purchase.
(Please note: Android users can also get the app but it does not have the new location-based coupons upgrade, yet.)
Download the app and you could win an Iphone5
