#Superbowl Guide - Welcome to New Jersey. Things to do.

I am so excited that the Superbowl is being played here in my home state this year.  You can feel the excitement in the air.  Concerts and events are abundant.

 Being from the Tri-State area, I am use to the fast paced lifestyle that surrounds me every day.  If you plan on visiting for this event, be prepared!  If you order food in a restaurant, you will usually have it in front of you within 10 minutes tops.  If you go to a drive thru or fast food place,  you will most likely have it in 2.  I highly recommend you have pizza while visiting.  Some of the best pizza in the USA is made here in the area.  Look for the local pizzerias, not the chains.

If you're looking to listen to local sports on the radio, check out 660 AM or 101.9 FM for WFAN and 98.7 ESPN FM .   Local news and weather can be found on 880 AM (traffic and weather on the 8s) or 1010 AM (has traffic and weather on the 1s)

For TV Sports there are too many stations to mention but the Superbowl itself will be on FOX 5 NY…

Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker Review

I was given the opportunity to review the Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker and I love this product!

Its so easy to use.  Just fill the silicone mold with water and place it in the freezer and chill until frozen.  It makes perfect ice balls.

This could also be used to make great snowballs.



The Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker is great for punches and pitchers of drinks.  You can even freeze your punch or juice so that your drink doesn't dilute. I made an ice ball  for my sisters dog and he had a blast rolling it around and licking it.  We made sure to supervise him the entire time he played with it.

The molds clean easily and


The Arctic Chill Ice Ball Maker is available on Amazon.
Visit Amazon if you would like to purchase this great product!

Directions of use: The molds couldn't be easier to use. All you need to do is pop the lid together and fill it up through the little hole in the lid. Make sure you leave around a 1/2 inch gap as water expands when it freezes and then put it in the …

Freshen Up Your Home with Sears Furniture

I am a huge Sears fan.  I can remember shopping there with my mom as a child.
Sears has a lot of value for your money and in my opinion really good customer service.  I purchase all of my appliances at Sears and look forward to browsing their furniture as well.
My house is due for some major redecorating. My family room couches need to be replaced and so do a few of my tables.  Rugs are beginning to wear and to be quite honest, I am tired of looking at the same furniture after so many years. 
My house is starting to feel more like a catch-all and less like a home, so I know its time for a change.
Finding furniture that is sturdy and fits my style is so important to me.  
With the start of 2014,Sears has new furniture collections in a wide range of stylesto help you make your house feel like a home again. Whether you prefer a modern look, are more of a traditionalist or comfort is key, the large selection of sofas, dining sets, accent chairs and accent rugs will let you create a look that i…

Hurry Spring!

This cold weather is putting me in survival mode.  I never throught I'd be sitting in my home wearing gloves and a ski hat , but here I am doing just that. 
  I find myself cooking and baking all day.  In the past 2 days I've made  beef stew, a pot of chili, coffee cake muffins and meshi, which is ground beef with minced onion, tomato sauce and diced peppers wrapped in foil (like stuffed cabbage) and boiled in mint tea.  I haven't even been hungry. I am just cooking to stay warm. Plus, I figure if we lose power from this frigid weather, I can start a fire in the fireplace and throw a pot of food on it, if I don't freeze first.
How have you been fairing in this cold polar weather?  
Here are some tips for keeping warm in the winter from thesimpledollar.com.  I hope they can be useful for you.  
Stay warm my friends!
