Tues 2/20 Whoop It Up At Noon!

Have you had a case of the winter blahs? I sure have and that’s why I am gonna say “BYEEEEEE” to winter today at Noon in honor of Northern Hemisphere Hoodie Hoo Day! Ok, so here is what you do, set your alarm and step outside right at noon, then start to wave your hands over your head and holler at the top of your lungs “Hoodie Hoo!”. This day is dedicated to chasing away those winter blues and guess what… this also marks the one month count down to the official start to spring!

Banish winter with a loud “Hoodie Hoo” and this amazing Spring Green’s Salad as you start the countdown to the official start of spring!

Tues: 2/13 Laissez les bons temps rouler

Laissez les bons temps rouler, let the good times roll on this Fat Tuesday!  On this final day of Epiphany, Christians around the world revel in the their last day of indulgence prior to Ash Wednesday kicking off the next 40 days of Lent.  While New Orleans hosts the largest Mardi Gras celebrations, the original is claimed to have been held in Mobile Alabama way back in 1699 and is a tradition that is still going strong today.  Mardi Gras is celebrated all over the world in places from the Cayman Islands, to the Czech Republic to Italy with each country having slight variations to their traditions but each are focused on a final throw down with your favorite indulgent treat!

For me today is gonna be filled with carbs, carbs and more carbs!  Then I’ll just cry myself to sleep as I give them up for the next 40 days!

Wed 1/31: Goodnight Moon, Hello Werewolves

On Wednesday January 31st the world will witness a Blood Moon! It’s a total lunar eclipse where the moon doesn’t go totally dark…it goes blood red! This happens when the moon reaches it’s closest point to earth in this orbit and it will appear bigger than normal with a deep reddish tint. Legend’s say that this type of moon causes increased aggression in werewolves and many more people are bitten and transformed on the nights that a Blood Moon hangs in the sky.Goodnight Moon,Hello Werewolves

This is the type of moon legends are built on, so if you dare, mix ya up some Blood Moon Martini’s pack them in your KELLBEE Cup and head outside to watch the show! KELLBEE Cups are a Stainless Steel Yeti Style Tumbler that comes in an AMAZING variety of bright vibrant colors and will keep your beverage cold for 24 hours in it’s double walled vacuum insulated stainless steel walls all while insulating your hands from the cold! I have several that I use everyday for both hot and cold beverages and I totally love mine!
