Review: Carabba's Italian Grill  

Sunday, October 31, 2010


About a month or so ago, my family and I were treated to Carabba's Italian Grill by MS&L.

We were sent a $25 gift voucher to purchase our meal. Of course, I took my camera, but I was so busy enjoying my food that I forgot to take any photos.

I took my son, my daughter, and my boyfriend to our local Carabba's in Baltimore County. Here's what we ate:

Appetizer: Lobster Mac & Cheese
My entree: Seafood Cannelloni
My boyfriend's entree: Mezzaluna
My son's entree: Manicotti
My daughter's food: Cheese Pizza

I personally LOVED my Cannelloni! I LOVE seafood and I love Pasta so for me, it was the best of both worlds! My boyfriend's Mezzaluna was great too and I actually wished that I had gotten that, so next time, I will! I talked my son into trying the Manicotti since he was just going to get pizza. I told him, "Every time you go somewhere to eat, you have to try something new that you haven't tried before." So I talked him into trying that, and he loved it.

We all loved the Lobster Mac and cheese and the bread they bring you before your food arrives! They give you a little plate with spices on it and then they add in some Extra Virgin Olive Oil and you dip the bread in that. I can't remember all of the spices due to the length of time it's been since we visited, but I'm telling you, I left there soo full!

Not only was our food delicious, but the atmosphere at the restaurant was great. It's very classy, with great prices, and the servers are all very knowledgeable. Our server made sure to explain things to us and he answered any questions we had.

I really enjoyed my time at Carabba's and I will visit there again soon! Italian food is my favorite type of food and I love Carabba's! YUM!

I felt like splurging a little when we went there so I had to use some of my own funds for dinner, but I know the general prices of Italian food and I truly believe that you get what you pay for. Including our appetizer and dinner, our food was under $50 so to me, that's a deal!

Have you tried Carabba's? Do you love it like I do?

Review: Samsung TL205 Digital Camera  

One thing that I like to do, and I hope to learn more about, is photography. I love technology products and digital cameras are of no exception. I have a great one that I won a couple of years ago, and it has a 12X zoom, but when I was asked to review the Samsung TL205 DualView 12.2 Megapixel Dual LCD Digital Camera, I was thrilled!

I mean, look at this baby:

It's sleek and just so pretty.

I love the front LCD screen! It also has a function for taking pictures of babies/small children. You push the Front LCD button twice and a clown appears on the front LCD and it's animated and makes some sounds! I tried it out with a friend of mine's toddler and she was enthralled with it!

I love this camera, and it's features, but I am disappointed with the zoom. Like I said, I have another camera that has a 12X zoom and this TL205 just doesn't zoom in as far (it only has a 3X optical zoom). However, I do love the face recognition (which my camera also has), and the Smart Auto scene function.



The TL205 is great in that you can select from many different scene functions, such as outdoors, night, low light, etc. It also has Optical Image Stabilization, which is supposed to correct the shaking effect you'll sometimes have in photos, although I still had a couple of my photos come out blurry. You can also record video on this camera, and I like that alot too.

All in all, this is a great looking camera, but I'll stick with my other camera (a Canon).

Connecting for the Cure - Giveaway  


It figures that I would be so busy this month with regular life (not just bloggy life) that I would be posting this information and giveaway on the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

At any rate, I always participate in some form of activity for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I usually round up Pink Lids to mail out every year, and this year I've diligently been entering codes to donate 10 cents for each lid. Posting this information is just another way that I'm trying to do my part.


Individually we are strong, but together we are stronger. We encourage you to visit PinkTogether.com, an ever-growing community of hope of more than 680,000 breast cancer survivors and supporters. There you can share stories, post comments of encouragement and send virtual flowers to let someone know you are thinking of him or her.

On this site, you can also read the empowering stories from the 2010 Pink Together Survivor Ambassadors, five incredible individuals whose courage in the face of breast cancer serves as a source of inspiration:
  • Ebony Steele - This three-year survivor serves as a National Ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure´s® Circle of Promise, an effort focused on fostering breast cancer awareness, support, empowerment and action among African American women.
  • Eli Arroyo-Allen - A two-year survivor, Eli is the founder of the Loving Life/Amando La Vida program supporting Latina women with breast cancer.
  • Ginger Johnson - A mother and four-year survivor, Ginger is the director of Happy Chemo!, whose mission is to bring happiness to those dealing with the negative effects of chemotherapy and cancer.
  • Libby Pomroy - Libby is a two-time, 15-year survivor and a General Mills employee.
  • Nicole Vazquez - This three-year survivor is a Komen breast cancer activist in the Latino community.

These Survivor Ambassadors and their empowering stories will also be featured on the Pink Together Facebook fan page and YouTube channel, and on special pink packaging on your favorite General Mills´ brands like Cheerios® Cereal, Green Giant® Frozen Vegetables and Nature Valley® Granola Bars. If you or someone you know would make a great candidate for next year´s Pink Together Survivor Ambassadors, please visit PinkTogether.com for more information.

To encourage personal connections in the online community, General Mills will donate $1 (up to $20,000) to Komen for each inspirational story submitted, encouraging comment posted, or virtual flower of support sent on PinkTogether.com, and for each shared message of hope posted on Pink Together´s Facebook fan page during the month of October (up to $5,000). This $25,000 is in addition to the $2 million donation General Mills has committed to Komen to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.
To help facilitate in me spreading this helpful information, General Mills sent me a "Connecting for a Cure" gift pack that included a Pink Ribbon car magnet and key chain, travel mug, and drawstring backpack, along with coupons for free packages of one Big G cereal, Green Giant® Frozen Veggies, Macaroni Grill® Dinner Kits, Fiber One® Bars and Progresso® Soup. 



All of the items included in the gift packs are from ShopKomen.com, where 25 percent of the merchandise purchase price benefits Komen. Pretty cool huh?

GIVEAWAY

One of you will win the prize pack that I received! (shown above)

To enter, tell me what you find most encouraging about the Pink Together community?

Get on the MOVE with PlayStation Move  

Thursday, October 21, 2010

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PlayStation MOVE. All opinions are 100% mine.




If you know anything about me, you know that I love technology. I heard about the new PlayStation Move as soon as it came out and I thought it sounded pretty cool. (I still do!)

If this system magically appeared in my house one day, it would be great for the kids and I to play games together as a family. I'm sure the kids would get in on the action and challenge each other on a regular basis, too. The boyfriend might even get involved! Plus, it's a good way to get exercise!

I like that it's simple and easy to use and the PlayStation website says it's even easy for people who have never played video games before.

The games for PlayStation Move look really cool too - like TV Superstars (a party game), Brunswick Pro Bowling, even Get Fit With Mel B looks interesting to me!

Did you know that you can easily add the Move bundle package to your PlayStation 3, and for a very affordable price? It's only $99!

What type of games would you like to check out on the PlayStation Move system? Do you think this would be a fun thing for your family to do together?

Online Baby Shower sponsors sought  

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

In addition to my holiday event that I'm planning, I'm also having an Online Baby Shower for my brother and sister-in-law. They're having Baby #3 and IT'S A BOY! (They already have two girls!)

As we all know, raising children is expensive and I'm looking to help my bro and SIL get items for their bouncing baby boy (due in early March 2011) since this was a surprise visit from the Stork!

My sister in law is interested in learning more about babywearing, breastfeeding, and organic baby products. Of course, all types of items are needed, so feel free to contact me with your pitch!

If you run a company that has baby products that would fall in line under this event, please take a moment and contact me for more information.

Holiday Event sponsors sought  

I'm currently planning a HUGE Christmas event for my blog and I'm seeking out sponsors for reviews and giveaways. I have three children ages 11, 14, and 16 so the normal things that those ages would love are wanted, as well as books, clothing, and movies. I also would like to highlight some great items to give to Mom or Dad or even Grandma or Grandpa for the holiday season so technology items, DVDs, music, books, clothing, and shoes would be accepted too!

The dates for this event are from November 15th through November  29th so that my giveaway winners will have their items in time for Christmas.

If you're interested in having your company represented in my holiday event, please contact me for more information.

Today the daily double is Nike who is normally 6% cash back, but today ONLY is 10% cash back! If you or your kids need some shoes, today is a good day to get some!

Review and Giveaway: Breathe Right  



I was contacted by M80 to do a review of Breathe Right strips, and since I've always wanted to try them, I figured I'd participate in a little review and have a giveaway for my readers!

My children both suffer from seasonal allergies and my son must be severely allergic to mold because it literally tears him up! Some nights they have a hard time breathing and normal over-the-counter drugs just don't help enough. They both tried the Breathe Right Advanced Nasal Strips and commented how much better they could breathe (even while awake!) These will definitely be on my list of items to keep on hand!

In conjunction with this review and giveaway, I'd like to share my tips on what I think makes a healthier, happier family. I'm a single mom so I'm always doing the work of two but it's the little things (in my mind) that make the most difference.

I always try to take time out of my day (no matter how bad, crazy, or stressful) for each one of my children. I let them voice how their day was, ask and answer questions, and I help them with their homework. In the evening when it's time to wind down for the upcoming day, I remind my daughter to get her items for the next day together so she won't be rushing around in the morning.

On the weekends, we like to relax, either at home or with friends. I give my children enough opportunities to enjoy being a child and I trust them. It doesn't mean I'm easy on them - but I feel like we have a good enough relationship that either they would come to me with a problem or I would be able to identify it.

We like to do crafts together, as well as play games, and watch movies. I make sure to do at least three of these activities a week. It keeps us close and helps keep us grounded.


We're not perfect but I like to think we're happy. I'm doing the best that I can do with what I have.

Now, onto the contest:

Whether you’re suffering from stuffiness due, colds, allergies, or a deviated septum, Breathe Right has a drug-free solution that works instantly and can help you breathe better, sleep better, and feel better.

Let’s face it – being a mom is a challenge. There are a million things to worry about from figuring out what to pack for lunch, crying babies, paying the bills etc. Something we all dread is a stuffy nose.  The folks at Breathe Right have just released a new Advanced strip that is even better at opening the nasal passages, which can help you, breathe better and sleep better.  And a better night’s sleep is precious to all us moms!
