Steal of a Deal, Act NOW!

Okay peeps, here is a bargain for you! Here are some directions for printing out $20 Gift Certificates for $2. Yup, true story $2. They also have $10 certificates for $0.80. Go to (This is a website where you can buy Gift Certificates for %50 off). Find your state/region and search restaurants. (Even you out of staters can do it.) Add the Restaurants to your cart and on that page enter the promo code: BITE. I think that this expires tomorrow night so hurry and do it, they are selling out fast. Also pay close attention to the limitations, some you cannot go on specific days, and on all of them you have to spend a certain amount before applying the G.C.. Still it is so worth it! We just got back to Tres Hombres and it was EL Fantistico! One of the best parts is that you do not have to wait for it to come in the mail, you just print it on your printer, Let me know if it works for you, and don't forget to hurry!

I haven't been into blogging at all lately. Number one reason, I detest thinking of post titles and then trying to connect all of my random thoughts to it. I am seriously debating doing away with post titles. Take today, I don't have anything overly important to say, and my thoughts are most certainly not connected, but can I really do a 67th post title with "random" in it? Anywho here they are:
1. Totally bummed I missed the Jet Blue sale where tickets from SLC to JFK went for $10 each way, yup you heard me. It would have been oh so great to go with Momma J, I sure do love that women.
2. Teething stinks. I hate it, not as much as the Mr. though I am sure. The poor thing looks like he is getting four teeth really close together. Cheers to sleepless nights folks.
3. Speaking of nights, the other night I woke up to a HORRIBLE smell. I was pretty sure it was Big E's breath that was blowing in my face. I kinda gagged and then rolled over. The stench was still surrounding me. It wasn't too long before I realized that the smell was coming from my own mouth. Sometimes Farsen is disgusting.
4. Why don't they make sitcoms like they used to? Really, where are the Frasier's, Cheers and Golden Girls? I had a serious dilemma today when Frasier and the Golden Girls were on at the same time.
5. I miss my Sorority officer group. Kristina, Melissa, Amie, Mindi, Gretel, Bethany and Maureen you guys rocked and were such a blessing in my life. Really, I had never needed solid friends so badly when you all entered my life. Thank you a million times over. For the giggles, the fun and the richness that you added to my life. I miss you all! I think that when we finally find a home, I am going to throw us a reunion party!
6. Hate the gym and I still hate sweating. I have been going pretty consistently since January, thinking it would get better, but alas, still hate it.
7. I love 24 this season, but Jack and Renea need to hook up already.
8. Cooking today? Well, I have totally slacked off with Tasty Tuesday so here is a recipe, once again super yummy! This one comes from my Grandma Jo, and it is seriously the best fudge ever!

Microwave Fudge
½ c butter
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow cream

1 tsp vanilla
