And with the fun of blogging comes many perks... this being one of them.
So, here's a little bit of foreshadowing on what's to come:
I will be adding a fun new feature to this good ol' blog of mine. A way for me to say "thank you!" for supporting me in my efforts to head over to Romania this coming summer. Sporadically I will be testing out some new products, and if I happen to like them, giving a few of them away to you! So stay tuned... giveaway posts to come. This oughta be great.

This year's theme is "The Bovines in Blue"
If you're at all familar with these calenders,
every edition features those cows up to something.
This year it's "protecting cows and serving chicken".
And it's pretty stinkin' hilarious.
If you can get past the slightly bizarre nature, they really are nice calenders. Each month features one great-deal of a coupon (and December's has two!) They cost $6.00 a piece- but seriously they pay you right back with free sandwhiches, salads, drinks, shakes, and more. A friend of mine just keeps her's in the trunk of her car so she'll have them while they're out and about. Handy, ain't it?

Horaay! Finally, the first fundraiser has come upon us! It's an exciting one too. And pretty yummy at that.
Friday, the fourteenth of November, I will be holding a bake sale at the Chick-Fil-A in Westminster. This is the one on Englar Road in the Food Lion shopping center with the Joann Fabrics, not the one in the mall. It's from about 2:30-5 pm, roughly.
Now, you may be wondering what kind of yummy deserts there might be at this bake sale, or even where they might be coming from. That's where this thing turns into one big group effort. I need you!
If you have a knack for baking, or don't and need some practice, this is certainly your lucky day! If you would like to donate any baked goodies (brownies, cookies, breads, muffins, cakes, candy, pastries, etc.) I will take them off your hands with overwhelming gratitude. You can just drop them off at the church (or my house- whichever is easier) sometime early Friday. We'll probably run by the church around 1 or 1:30 to pick stuff up. Unless of course it's something than can be frozen and thawed, in which case you can drop it off whenever it's convenient.
Next on my list...
I will also be selling Chick-Fil-A 's 2009 calenders to accompany this fundraising effort. They sell for $6.00 a piece. The nice part is each month features coupons so that, in turn, they end up paying for themselves after the first month. Pretty sweet, huh? They will be available at the bake sale and beyond. Pictures to come...
So, with that said, if you feel that you could donate any baked treats, whether they be healthy or not so healthy, please leave me a comment with your name, what you plan on cookin', and about how much you'd like to give. Or in case the calenders strike your fancy, just comment me and let me know.
Thanks so much you all- this should be pretty cool!
