Thank you to everyone who entered my Coffee-Mate giveaway!
I hope you all didn’t mind using the Rafflecopter interface. I was accepted into the beta program and it made things much easier for me on the back end. It even randomly picks the winner at the touch of a button, so without further adieu the winner is….
The dog days of summer are coming to an end — our schools starting in just about two weeks (and many already back in session). But that doesn’t mean the warm weather is going to stop anytime soon. I plan on enjoying iced coffee drinks well into the fall, and I’ll probably need the extra jolt of caffeine to get everyone ready and out the door on time!
One of my favorite ways to jazz up iced coffee is to use a flavored creamer. The folks over at Coffee-Mate sent me a to-go cup (perfect to take to the bus stop!), a coupon for a free bottle of Coffee-Mate creamer, and recipe cards with tasty ideas for fun beverages.
I’ve really been enjoying my own versions of expensive coffee shop-style iced coffees, thanks to their yummy Café Collection creamers. The flavors include Hazelnut Latte, Vanilla Latte, Café Mocha, Café Latte, White Chocolate Caramel Latte, and my favorite — Caramel Macchiato. I think that the next one I’m going to try is the White Chocolate Caramel Latte, which also sounds yummy.
I have the opportunity to give away a Coffee-Mate prize pack to one lucky reader so you can whip up some tasty treats of your own! You can enter up to four times — there is one mandatory entry and three optional entries. Just follow the prompts below! Good luck!

I was first introduced to Wasa crackers a few years ago when I initially went low-carb. I read dozens of message board posts about how wonderful they are and once I tried them — I was hooked. So when I was asked to review the new Wasa thin & crispy flatbreads, I was really excited.
The flatbreads come in three flavors: rosemary, sesame, and original. We had a small gathering for my mother-in-law’s birthday, so it was the perfect time to try them out. They were a hit with everyone — especially the rosemary flavor. Paired with a little dill havarti, they were scrumptious! But the great thing about Wasa crackers is that you can use them in so many different ways. They’re not just for cheese platters (although my husband was very proud of his artistic food presentation here):
One of Drew’s favorite ways to enjoy Wasa is with a fried egg on top. This is so yummy on the original flatbread, especially when you add a dab of salsa. As for the sesame, I like to top a sesame flatbread with hummus and a little roasted red pepper for a mid-morning snack. If you are short on ideas, check out Wasa’s Snackspiration promotion on their Facebook page. You can create your very own Wasa recipe with the new Create-A-Snack app for a chance to win a trip to Canyon Ranch Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona.

One of my favorite things about parties is putting together little favor bags for the guests. And while it would be impossible to give a favor to each and every blog visitor from the Ultimate Blog Party, I can host a giveaway for a little something. So whether you’re a longtime reader, or someone who has just discovered my blog through UBP11, just leave a comment on this entry for your chance to win this springy boutique hair bow. I made it from three different ribbons: a polka dot grosgrain, a lime green grosgrain, and a pink and green printed satin ribbon. The center is embellished with a silk flower and a tiny rhinestone.
I’ll accept entries for the duration of the blog hop (until April 8). I’ll use Random.org to pick the winning comment and post the name here bright and early Saturday morning! Good luck!
Last year I participated in The Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom and discovered so many great new blogs in the process. I can’t wait to do it again this year! It takes place from April 1-April 8 and it’s a wonderful chance to meet new friends, win fun prizes, and (let’s be honest here) promote your own blog.
I’ve decided to submit a “door prize” this year. At the end of the blog party, one of the participants will be chosen to win a bunch of knitting goodies including a pair of needles, two skeins of yarn, a knit pumpkin kit, and a copy of “Stitch ‘n Bitch: Superstar Knitting” by Debbie Stoller.
I don’t pick the winner for this giveaway — the lovely ladies organizing this web event take care of that. I just ship it out However, I do plan on having a giveaway right here on my blog so you’ll want to check back for that. Want to know more? Read all about the 2011 Ultimate Blog Party to find out how to join, how to submit a prize (if you’re interested) and when everything gets rolling. I promise you’ll have fun!
