I don’t smoke, and I never will smoke, and while I hate the smell of cigarettes I kind of don’t mind the smell of cigars. They smell different to me, and I never minded walking by the smoking lounge that used to be in our downtown area. I wonder if there is some process that you go through for rating cigars? I don’t know much about them at all!

Cereal Giveaway

It’s Monday, and Monday’s are probably the worst day of the week in my book because the weekend has come to an end, so how about another giveaway to make today not so bad??

We are BIG cereal eaters in our house. Joe loves to take cereal to work with him for a mid-morning snack (since he has breakfast ridiculously early when he gets up to run), Lucy loves to snack on cereal, and I like to eat any kind that doesn’t need milk (I don’t like milk at ALL). My favorites are Lucky Charms, while the others in my house like the more healthy cereals like Cheerios.

But, Lucky Charms isn’t all that unhealthy. It’s a Big G cereal, and all Big G cereals contain at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving. So, I can totally justify my cravings!

General Mills and MyBlogSpark have teamed up to give one of my readers a free box of a Big G cereal as well as a pretty nifty prize pack.

What you win:
A VIP coupon for one Big G cereal, a cereal on-the-go bowl, lunch bag, walking enthusiast kit and a digital jump rope.

How to enter:
1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite Big G cereal.
2. The giveaway ends at 11 p.m. EST on Friday, Jan. 28.
3. The winner will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to respond.

Extra entries:
1. Write a blog post about this giveaway and link back to it — 5 entries
2. Tweet about this giveaway — Win a free box of cereal from @cadifi http://tinyurl.com/4tosghq (please leave either your twitter ID or the url of your tweet in your comment) — 1 entry a day

Pleave one comment per entry, i.e., five comments for a blog post, one comment per tweet. Remember to come back every day and enter to increase your chance of winning!

This giveaway is sponsored by General Mills through MyBlogSpark. I was given a gift pack for this giveaway.


I was at Publix tonight to grab some breakfast items they went on sale for 50% off. I was looking for Cinnabon cereal because I was getting a great deal with coupons, and as I was scanning the shelves this man called out to me.

Man: Are you looking for Cinnabon cereal?

Me: Yes

Man: Too bad I’m taking the last box.

Rude much?

$20 Amazon Gift Card for $10!

Today’s Living Social deal is awesome — a $20 Amazon gift card for $10!! This is a great deal for those of you who, like me, do a lot of shopping at Amazon.com. I’ve been getting Lucy’s boxed diapers there, and I’ve been doing a lot of gift shopping there as well. The deal is only on for about 20 more hours, so make sure you take advantage of it!

Restrictions: Only one gift card per person, and gift card cannot be gifted.

I took Lucy to play at the mall today, and she had SO much fun. She just laughed and laughed the whole time. And when she got knocked down by kids going down the slide? She laughed hysterically! She is just so much fun!
