God has a plan for ALL of us!'s Paper Coterie Giveaway

When Melissa started blogging she had no idea what she was getting herself into; She had no expectations of what she would do or even if she would enjoy it.  She certainly has come to love it though; more than she thought possible.  

The title of her blog: God has a plan for ALL of us! really is to remind her. To remind her everyday that there is a wonderful world out there, to remind her that we are all loved by God and that no matter where we are in life ~ we have a purpose.  

Jeremiah 29:11 NIV  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

We are not to always understand to or to know. He knows and we are to have the faith that is enough.  Her and her family were saved on July 1st of this year.  But her blog, it's name, well that came about in January.  Did she know then that they would be saved by the summer? Of course not! But like Jeremiah said... God knows! 

She am here to celebrate! Celebrate their love of God, of each other and the world! This is the first giveaway that she has organized and what a great gift to be giving others but a Memory Keeper from Paper Coterie.

Several fellow bloggers have been kind enough to support her and I would love for you to stop by and give them a shout out! Southern Stay-at-Home Mom; CMMStyle; This Frugal Family; Make a Dolla Holla; Love2Encourage You and several others!

Paper Coterie have graciously given one winner their choice of Memory Keeper.  A Memory Keeper is a custom designed box to hold those precious mementos.  Whether it be for a new baby, a new beginning as with Christ, the beginning of a new school year or for past memories of loved ones.  With over 45 different layouts to choose from you can definitely find the right fit for your special occasion. She has ordered her gifts from Paper Coterie and have loved each one. They make sure each item is of high quality and the pictures are excellent.  She reviewed another one of their products here

Please complete each entry on the rafflecopter form.  I will be verifying each entry so make sure you wait for the pages to load so you don't miss out.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to let me know :)

Uncle Matt's Organics Giveaway

Let’s talk about juice. There are certain expectations you have when it comes to
fruit type juices and when it comes to Uncle Matt’s organic juices they exceed every
expectation. Matt Mclean started his organic juice business in the great state of Florida
(imagine that!!) in 1999 where he come from four generations of organic citrus growers
and produces high quality juices that are certified USDA organic and it started with his
100% not-from-concentrate organic orange juice.

I found Uncle Matt’s at Whole Foods which must be very popular because the last time I
went to pick up some they were out and had to go to another Whole Foods store to find it.
I chose the orange juice with pulp and I could not believe the taste. If I did not know it
I would have thought it was fresh squeezed. It had a sweet taste combined with the pulp
like eating an orange, it was that good. Made with a mixture of Hamlin and Valencia
oranges this pure Florida organic orange juice hits the spot any time of day.

The organic apple juice is 100% pressed apple juice has a sweet blend of a mix of apples
types. Served cold has a delicious taste like drinking an apple and makes you wanting to
take another drink. Our children love it, but what’s not to like? Fruit that is organically
grown that is free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, which is some thing I can get
use to real quick.

Now here is a juice that has more of a flavorful taste than most fruit juices, grapefruit
juice. Uncle Matt decided to use a combination of Ruby Red, Rio, and White grapefruits
blended together to make a bold tasting juice that only the grapefruit can deliver. So,
remember to add glass of Uncle Matt’s grapefruit juice to your breakfast or any time for
that just picked taste.

Uncle Matt’s has created the ultimate lemonade in his organic home-style lemonade that
has mixture of sweet and sour. You first taste the delicious sweeten lemon flavor then
comes the more natural tart flavor that lemons are famous for. Blend them together and
you have a thirst quenching drink leaving you wanting more.

Don’t just take my word for it... try it for
yourself. Uncle Matt’s are sold in the 12oz and 59oz bottles at a store near you and if
you cant find it go to Uncle Matt’ and they can help you get it in your local store.
Uncle Matt's Organics has been so generous to offer 1 lucky winner 3 coupons for FREE juice and an Uncle Matt's Organics Cooler Bag.

El Tri Market Review

When it comes to the evening meal the one question on everyone’s mind is “what’s for
dinner?” Since Mexican food is a classic and our favorite we tried the Comel Foods
ready made Barbacoa de Res, the Carnitas de Cerdo and Cochinita Pibil thanks to the
folks at El Tri Market. El Tri Market specializes in outstanding customer services while
proudly selling online its many wonderful Mexican products and to promote the rich
culture and history that is Mexico.

Barbacoa is a slow cooked marinated shredded beef. It had wonderful flavor we put it
on a tortilla added some cheese and salsa the kids loved it. The Cochinita Pibil is a slow
roasted pork dish the comes from the Yucatan Peninsula and is usually marinated and
shredded which happen to make another excellent taco, the Cochinita had an overall good
taste and texture and will satisfy just about any appetite besides the fact that they are
quick and easy to make and with our hectic and fast paced lives we lead a little help in
the kitchen goes a long way.

We decided to make Carnitas burritos with Mole sauce. Carnitas are slow roasted
then fried pork pieces and Mole is a popular sauce made with chiles, spices
chocolate or tomtoes. The burritos were great. The Mole was a great addition and made
a great burrito even better they made a great combination together. So did the Pipian
enchiladas. Pipian sauce is similar to mole but more of a nutty earthy taste. We made
some cheese enchiladas and topped it with some Pipian sauce and the taste was quite
good with lots of flavor which just made the enchiladas.


The food was good and was easy to prepare and all you need is add in a few margaritas
and it is fiesta time. 
So, when you get the feeling for some Mexican food that is quick and
easy to make for the family do what our family did and went to
or you can call 855-358-7444 where you can enjoy a flavor that is truly Mexican.
