I'm Back?

After a nice break from the blogging world, I miss it. UM.... a lot! So, with that being said, you'll see me around more often! I'll be sure to start posting some of the awesome last minute Christmas deals and steals that I run across, and I look forward to reconnecting with everyone!

OH, and by the way.... my baby girl is going to be a BIG SISTER! While I was away, I managed to get preggers with a little boy who is due in February! <3

Chilis: Wild or Mild!

Chili's Bar and Grill is currently offering a fantastic new promotion, and I have been given the opportunity to tell you more about my WILD or MILD side!

Working the menu right now are some of Chili's classic favorites; however, for a limited time, you now have the opportunity to spice them up with the fantastic "Wild or Mild" promotion! Kicked-Up Queso, Jalapeno Chicken Quesadillas , Blazin’ Big Mouth Bites, and Sweet Maple BBQ Chicken Crispers are just some of the revved up options you can choose from!

Chili's has graciously given me the opportunity to tell you all about it! I'm a sucker for the classics, and we chose to stick with the mild side of things up until the very last minute! When our fantastic waitress took our order, I slid in the little words, "Kicked-Up" in front of our queso order, and boy am I glad I did! A short while later, our table was blessed with the perfect combination of fresh chips and a spicy version of our absolute favorite dip! The wild side of me went crazy for this *HOT* new menu item.... and when I say *HOT* I mean fantastic! It wasn't too spicy, but it was just enough to make me think, "WOW! They should permanently add this to the menu!" Even our 2 year old seemed to enjoy it! An addition of pico de gallo, chipotle, and fire roasted jalapenos to their skillet queso had our mouths watering for more!

For fun, Chili's has invited you to join them in their Shout Out To Eat Out: Wild or Mild boards! Create your own avatar to show your WILD or MILD side! Everyday through April 30, 2011 one winner will win a $20 gift card to use at your favorite Chili's restaurant. THEN.... are you ready for this?!? The avatar with the most fan votes at the end (4/30/11) will win a WILD trip to Las Vegas or a MILD trip to Disney!!! How exciting is that?!?! (PS... Vote for me! I'm the one in the tye-dye shirt, grass skirt, and funky flip flop feet! Haha!) So head on over to Shout Out to Eat and create your avatar, get your friends to vote, and win a gift card or a fabulous trip!

Chili's WOM promotion provided me with a $20.00 gift card. All opinions offered are mine and mine alone.

A chance to reach out...

Most of my blogging is light-hearted. I'm always excited to share awesome deals with you, provide new ways for you to connect with others, and tell you about the funny little quirks of my motherhood experiences. However, there is a great deal of stuff in my life that isn't so easy to deal with, and most of it is no laughing matter.

I know I'm not alone in feeling this way. Life is tough, and sometimes it's nice to have someone to talk to... even a complete stranger.

So, here is my idea. Over the next several weeks (or longer if we have a good turnout), I'm going to allow anyone and everyone who would like to email me with a question, problem, or issue they would like some extra support with. This can be anything. I will keep all identities anonymous and incredibly confidential. The goal is to find support, and if the individual would like to identify themselves or reach out to one of the supporters, then he or she is more than welcome to do so.

I will leave the topic up for a week, and go to another the next week. Again, the goal is to find support, gain good advice, or obtain the input of others in a way that will aid you in dealing with the problem at hand. Sometimes you find a sense of comfort in the strangest of ways, and just knowing you aren't alone is more powerful thank you think.

There will be NO condescending remarks, judgments, or any hint of insensitivity. These issues are important and are causing a disturbance of some sort in someone's life. THAT alone makes them far beyond a laughing matter. I will take these rules very seriously, and any infractions will be addressed immediately.

This is your chance to reach out....
