Flash 24 Hour Giveaway!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I know we did. My sister, mom and aunt and I got some great deals for gifts and a few sales we couldn't pass up for ourselves! My darling husband bought my anniversary gift early and I got my KitchenAid! I know I will be making lots of fun treats now that I feel like my kitchen is complete! I don't usually have people over except for a meal or games and dessert but when we visit my family in Joplin we are there for the weekend and have lots of meals to eat while we are there so hopefully this giveaway will help you out if you are having family staying with you during the holidays! This is a $10 gift certificate for any Dakota Beef product. It expires on 12/31/11 so you'll want to use it when you get it. Here is the list where you can buy these always organic beef! This giveaway ends 11/29/11 at noon! Just comment on if you have decorated for Christmas! We did last night and had so much fun with Big and Little!

Torani Review and Giveaway 2 Winners!

First off, I have to give a special thanks to SheSpeaks! I am working with SheSpeaks Blogger Society and they have given me the opportunity to review Torani's who is a favorite among most coffee shops and cafes with over 80 flavors to choose from. I have had a secret love affair with Italian Cream Soda's for a long time since I cannot enjoy coffee unless it is almost not coffee anymore! When I was a kid, I used to love it when we'd go to CiCi's Pizza since they had their fountain drinks where you could fill your own cup and I would make a Suicide! (Soda Suicide, ya know when you mix all the soda flavors together!) I love mixing drinks together and adding cherry or vanilla or now say, Pumpkin Pie!
My honest opinion of Torani's is that you can't find a much better flavor idea! These are wonderful for hot and cold drinks and I am thinking maybe even in something you eat! Think of your plain old orange Jell-O, you could add Kiwi or Passion Fruit to make that after school snack even more fun.The flavors are very concentrated so you only need a little which means it last quite a while. For my adventurous friends out there, flavors range from fun Cupcake to bizarre Bacon! My person favorite is Carmel and adding it to my hot chocolate in the morning while I am doing the dishes or maybe even blogging!
You can buy it now with this 10% discount code "shespeaks" at Also, TWO of you get the chance to pick out your own bottle of Torani's flavors. I will be picking two winners from the comments below on November 16 (my hubby's birthday) to celebrate the unveiling of my new blog design! I'm mail out the coupons  to the two winners within 48 hours of their reply email.

How to enter: Leave a comment on what flavor you'd like to try and what you'd mix it with!
Optional additional entries: Share on facebook, twitter (with link), like my facebook page, follow me on GFC!
Good luck and I am looking forward to seeing all your great ideas!
