-Dame Edith Sitwell
When I got behind the wheel of this 426 horsepower V8 powered MACHINE, i forgot about my Mercedes, I forgot about my husband’s BMW… this car is about power and acceleration and I freely admit: I HAD A BALL DRIVING THIS CAR AROUND TOWN FOR A WEEK!!
I’d recommend this car to ANYONE; this is not your mom’s Camaro (if in fact, your mother happen to have a Camaro)- it’s fast and handles well and turns on a dime… and most importantly for us moms… IT IS BEAUTIFUL, just BEAUTIFUL. We got the chance thanks to the great people at GM (who appreciate Moms and want to know what we are thinking and paying attention to) to drive this for a week and… we already miss it.
Thank you General Motors for making one little guy’s week… he and his friend who I picked up from a birthday party decided on the ride home that their first cars… would be Camaros.
Not too shabby on the building of Brand Loyalty, Chevy….
I have to say we have never gone in better style- we went in an ‘Inferno Orange’ Camaro Convertible and it was incredible.
Thanks so much to General Motors for being so in touch with moms and giving up the chance to drive this beautiful car !
Congratulations To Sandie for winning our GiveAway!
So I don’t do a lot of GiveAways….
BUT, a few weeks ago my son asked me if we could go to ‘Boloco’ and try a ‘Globally – Inspired’ Burrito. They just opened a location by our house, so I said, “Sure, why not?”
And it was a great experience!
I got a salad and my son got a burrito, because they offer their creations in a burrito, or a bowl (I LOVE THIS!) ….
A few days later, Boloco contacted me about trying their food, along with a leader in the tofu business, Nasoya, and would I like to do a GiveAway for my readers ????
…. KARMA ? ….
So I said, “YES!” Because you don’t mess with the Universe like that; plus I learned that Boloco is partnering with Nasoya to make some of their recipes in their restaurants and this creates healthy alternatives for the burrito chain (I LOVE THIS!).
I’m already a big tofu fan and I can honestly say that Nasoya tofu is in my refrigerator right now.
We’ve gone back since and my husband even likes Boloco and he’s generally not a fan of burritos and overly-filling food; BUT that is what is great about Boloco, in my opinion, you can get healthy choices at this burritos joint (I LOVE THIS!).
So try it out !!
They have numerous locations in New England and one in Bethesda and one in the District-
but don’t take my word for it-
ENTER THE GIVEAWAY FOR A $10 GIFTCARD AND A COUPON FOR FREE NASOYA TOFU!!

I just had the pleasure of reading Measure of Love, by Melissa Ford.
This book is the sequel to Life from Scratch, and it’s the story of Rachel and Adam Goldman; they are getting married… again!
This is a great book about relationships, perspectives, trust and love.
The more you read of this book, the less you want to put it down.
Pick it up this summer-
I recently had the pleasure of reading When She Was Wicked !
This is a GREAT Debut Novel by Anne Barton.
It has everything… twists and turns, intrigue, money and most of all, LOVE.
And the pacing is terrific – it never stops !
I loved this book, and got to finish it on the beach,
so keep it in mind this summer-
pick it up now for a great beach read!

This week, another great book…
on a totally different topic-
It’s Stuart Horwitz’s -
Blueprint Your Bestseller !
This book is a great guide to writing a novel.
It’s in-depth yet simple to understand,
and helps a writer organize a novel well.
I bought it after I heard him speak at a Writer’s Digest Conference,
and I think it is a great investment for a writer.
I believe it is a fantastic tool for a new and/or
unpublished writer, especially.
It deals with organizing scenes and series,
and never uses the word plot!
And I love that it also reminds you
that your book can only
This week I’m look- ing at another book, this time it’s a non-fiction picture book!
This is a story about the true rescue of a whale and the unusual and beautiful display of animal behavior it delivered.

This story really gave me goosebumps and the pictures show Jennifer’s amazing talent.
