Tastefully Simple Giveaway

The clouds were colliding into one another.
We had another crazy storm last evening. There wasn't as much extensive damage in our neighborhood as last week; however, these storms are unusual for us.

They blow in so quickly, rattling the windows and shaking leaves and limbs from the trees. Makes me wish our town had some kind of warning system to alert us.

Stormy weather brewing in our backyard last evening.


That little la niña has been quite the nasty girl this season. She's brought stormy weather almost every evening for the past week.

Never heard of la niña? Being the geeky savvy blogger that I am, I have a link for you to learn about la niña so you can impress your friends with your new knowledge. ☺


Maybe it's the weather, or perhaps the lack of structured schedules that's throwing me off this week. While I have an itch to stitch, I've lost my sewing mojo. I sit and stare, fondling my fabric, as I try to decide what to create with it. I was a bit productive yesterday...I went through a huge stack of vintage Vogue Patterns Magazines and tore out the 'Couture Techniques' articles. I'll put them in a binder and have a quite nice reference section on my shelf. Since I haven't been sewing, I've been amused with some new kitchen products.

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend a Tastefully Simple party. Have you ever been? If you haven't but get an invitation...GO! It's the only party I know where you eat your way through the catalog! Every sample I tried was delicious.

One of my favorites was the Tempting Taco Cheese Ball Mix. I could have eaten that entire cheese ball and bowl of Blue Aztec Chips all by myself!


I've been a fan of their Savory Wheat Beer Bread Mix for quite a while. It reminds me of the Beer Bread my Grandma used to make, but this is so much easier! All I have to do is add 12oz of beer (or a carbonated beverage) to the mix, pop it into the oven, and wait a few minutes for the memories to start wafting through the house.


The variety of items Tastefully Simple offers is excellent. There are over 50 different appetizers and meal makers! All their products are either open & enjoy, or require just one or two ingredients to prepare – simple! I love that they have 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed clause...no worries of trying something new. And the best thing...Everything will be shipped right to your door in 7-10 days.

Amy, my Tastefully Simple representative, wanted me to share some of the TS goodness with you. So, sweet bloggy friends, we're having a giveaway! And I wanted to sweeten this giveaway by adding a little sumpin'-sumpin' to it. There will be 2 winners! The first winner will receive...
