Good morning Friends, It's that time again...and this is a really nice giveaway, too, sponsored by MyBlogSpark.com.
I received a sample of Progresso High Fiber Chicken Soup to try and my teenage son offered to try it out for us...he loves Chicken Soup and like all teenage boys, he LOVES to eat, so it was a perfect fit.
Z gives the soup a big thumb's up and said that the noodles were good and the taste of the broth was really delicious (he calls it the 'juice' haha). He ate it all up lickety split, so I will definitely be buying more for him.
They also included 2 HUGE Soup mugs, that fit very comfortably in your hands and 2 spoons, too. How handy!
To enter to win this great giveaway, just tell me what your favorite soup is. That's it!
I will be choosing a winner on Thursday, so this is a quickie!

Here's a nice deal on a microsuede comforter set from Amazon.com!
They come in Twin, Full/Queen or King and each size set comes with microsuede feather filled comforter and 2 pillow shams and each size is clearanced priced at $39.99 with free shipping!
Here are the 4 color choices:
Enjoy the luxurious feel of microsuede with this stylish king bedding set, which includes a comforter and two matching shams. The set is made of 100-percent polyester microfiber that's undergone a sueding finishing process. The end result is a fabric with a slightly napped surface that looks and feels like genuine suede despite its synthetic nature. Available in four fashion colors, the comforter is filled with 100% waterfowl feathers. Both the comforter and shams feature matching 100% polyester microfiber on the reverse.
Looks so warm and cozy and I love the vibrant colors, too. I think I like the Brick and Chocolate the best, but they're all nice. That brick color reminds me of Christmas, it would look great with some red and white pillows on it for the season...and would take you right into Valentine's Day, too.
I just love getting a new look for my bedroom, it's like buying a new outfit...now, to pick a color ;)

Well, it's that time of year and although I cook all of the time, I am no baker! (Betty Crocker and I are besties! lol)
Can anyone recommend any great Christmas cookie recipe sites and blogs and blog posts? Thanks so much!!!
This looks like a pretty good deal for a digital picture frame. It's a 7" Memorex Digital Photo Frame. The original price was $109.99 and it's been marked down to $39.95! The reviews are mixed, basically people wish the resolution was better...but if you want a digital frame without paying $89 or more, than this one should do the trick. I love the brown and blue design, too.
Yesterday, I got the Sports Illustrated for Kids $5 magazine subscription for my older son and a PS3 game for him, too. Still looking for a few more things for him. My younger son is all set for Christmas.
How much shopping do you have left to do?
