Plans, plans ... What plans

This one is difficult for me, most of the time.

You see, I may have a control issue.  Ok I said it, I just may have a control issue.  

I get a bit flustered when things are going according to plan or even close to a plan.  I need to "fix" it.

I know God has His plan for my life, and hopefully I will allow Him to continue with His plan and just trust that everything will work out.  It just needs to be in His time because it is His plan.

Ok ......... BREATHE.

Go with the flow .......... and trust that all things will work out as they are meant to.

Progress is Progress

Sometimes people forget this one, especially when it seems like it is taking FOREVER to get something done and they want to stop, right then and there.

Heck IF I didn't believe that any progress was progress I would have stopped doing a ton of things that have made me who I am today and what continues to shape my world.

Tell me ... do you agree or am I the only one (except benefitsofgiving) that thinks this way???

Learn from the Butterfly

The "lowly" Butterfly is a beautiful creature ... and the source of so much wisdom.

See I told you ... the source of so much wisdom.
We can learn a lot from the butterfly - and not just that it can fly.

Amazon Fire TV

Have you joined the Amazon Fire TV Crowd?
I admit it - I have.  And I am so glad that we did.
I bet you would find all kinds of things that would make it a great buy for you too!

I have an Amazon Prime account, so it really was the next step to purchase one of these.  Once I connected my Amazon Prime account to my Amazon Fire TV I found a HUGE and I mean HUGE selection of TV shows and Movies that I could watch that I have missed.  Some I saw when they were originally broadcast and others I missed - not sure if it was because something else was on or if I just missed it ... but I have lots of new favorites to go with my "old" loves.

We have connected it to our Livingroom TV (a nice Sony HDTV that hubby just "had" to have) and you would think we had our own "stadium" or "movie theater" right in our house!

I know we have just scratched the surface but we already have some new favorites or go to shows when there seems to be nothing on TV.  They have a massive selection of shows and movies and of course games (but we haven't tried any of those yet).

I love that they have a voice search to find what you want to watch.  All you need to do is say the name of the show you want to watch and it finds it for you!  I think that is one of hubby's favorite - he doesn't have to do the searching ... or ask me to find it.

If you have kids, you can set up a "kids network" where you set up how much time they can watch as well as set up their own profiles.  I haven't gotten into this one too much since my "kid" is the one that got us all hooked up while she was home from college for the summer.  That's right, my kid in college ... I'm still having trouble with that one.  Set up is super easy too - and you don't need to have a kid in college to set it up.
Connect to the TV, 
Connect to your Internet
Start Watching

I love that I can catch up on the last season of Covert Affairs, that I somehow would miss.  I was so mad at myself for always having something to do when it was on or worse yet, fell asleep and missed all but the last 10 minute!  Now I was able to watch the entire season and be ready for the new season without missing a beat.

I started watching the series called "The Fringe" and now I can't stop.  I've gone through the first season and now I'm getting ready to watch the second.  Since it seems to have been around for a while, I'm hoping that the next season is as good as the first.  As much as this stretches the limits of what is "feasible", its not totally out there in the realm of Sci-Fi that you just can't watch anymore.

I guess I will start that season soon as well as look to see what else I might like to watch, like season one of Under the Dome.  I missed a few of the weekly shows and got lost - so I'm thinking its time to start from the beginning and catch up. And anyone who just loved Jack on 24 ... you guessed it.  IT'S HERE!

Hubby is liking that he gets to watch The Sopranos again from start to finish without having to get all the DVDs, although I'm sure he might like those as well.  Yes they even have all the seasons of The Sopranos for your watching pleasure!  I just saw that they have Duck Dynasty and American Pickers so I bet he will be trying to take over the TV if I'm not careful.

Anyway, the other thing that this baby does is give you a "one stop spot" for all kinds of viewing.  You can obviously hook up your Amazon account to it to view all their shows and movies (many of which are free with Prime) as well as your  Netflix and Hulu+ accounts and YouTube.com to rent low-cost movies and shows.  You can even watch Downtown Abby on this baby so I know there will be many people who would buy this just for that one show - but there are so many more that I bet you will love as much as I do.

There are just so many possibilities on this baby that I think every household should own an Amazon Fire TV.

Whatcha waiting for?

I bet you could get this baby at your house for about $100 and have YEARS of movies and shows to watch, that would be so much cheaper than going to the movies, which you probably don't do every day/night.

Adult movies and shows, Kids movies and shows - its a total win - win here.

How many weeks?

Have you seen this one?  Did you think about it or just pass it by without thinking?

At first, when I saw this one, I thought really Brad, are you for real?
And then I realized just how many years this is.

I intend to make the most of each and every week I have left.

There may have been weeks that I didn't accomplish what I wanted or even attempted to accomplish anything in particular.

But from now on, I will treat each of my weeks as one to be proud of .... no matter what I do.

How about you?

Thanks for the reminder Brad!

Where fear ENDS

This is an extremely powerful concept.  
One that I think many need to take to heart.  
Read it and THINK

I know many people have not worked or lived up to their full potential because they were afraid.

When you are afraid of failing, you stop and decide you CAN'T do something.

When we stop being afraid .. we can live up to our full potential ... LIFE Begins!

Do you agree??

Brownie Set up for when you are "short on time"

Have you ever wanted to make some home-made snack and think I don't have the time and either take a pass or go for a "box" mix?

Now I have a solution for you that could be made now and put in your cabinet for those times and you are still a SUPER COOL Mom that makes great snacks/desserts at the spur of the moment.

These are called "Sand Art Brownies" that you can have in your cabinet or give as gifts.

You could make these as is, or you could do some "optional" ones.  You could put M&Ms in the mix instead of chopped nuts.  Or maybe you like coconut or butterscotch chips or ... well you see the possibilities are endless.

And the best part .... you can make these NOW and store them in the Tupperware Modular Mate Spaghetti Dispenser so its always available to make at a moments notice (since we all know kids forget about those parties or bake sale needs until 9PM).  I can see these are family and friends gifts as well.

Oh if you don't have the Spaghetti Dispenser ... you can pick them up right now on my Tupperware Site for just $9 each!  You could pick up a half a dozen and have everything ready for this school year without breaking the bank.  You can also get the seals in 2 different colors (black or passion) so you could identify those with nuts and those without if that is a problem for you.  Or those with something other than chocolate chips ... the possibilities are endless.  

I know I am going to pick up a few so I can send some back to college with Jenn to make when late night munchies hit during those cram sessions that still go on every month or so!

Remember we are all suppose to help our fellow man ..... will you?

This is a post that  my cousin had posted on his Facebook Page recently.

I just wanted to share the powerful message that is reflected in this video.
Tell me what your thoughts are after you see this all the way to the end.

It takes a few seconds to load (could be because many are viewing) but it really does make you think.

Making it your own decision

I saw this one and thought well of course you make your own decisions so you shouldn't feel bad.  But then again I know I am guilty of this, less so now (a wonder what a little "age" will do for you) but it does still happen from time to time.

And then I started to think about all those that make their decisions based on what others would think.
They worry about how others will react to their decisions, and at times change their mind as to what they will do or what they will say or even what they will accomplish.

What do you think? 
Do you agree with the idea here?

Garden Frittata

I know that with school starting you may be thinking that good and quick breakfasts are out the window.

I'm here to tell you that is not the case ... check out this recipe using the Breakfast Maker by Tupperware.

Interested in this great piece of kitchen equipment?
I use this for all kinds of egg dishes, including this one when I don't have a lot of time in the morning but want an "egg" of some kind and don't want to be stopping on the way into the office.

Check it out on my Tupperware Site, where you can find this and so much more.

Tupperware's Microwave Cooking Pieces

The other day I shared the differences in the Tupperware Chopping and Mixing pieces, today I thought I would share the differences in our Microwave cooking pieces ... and share a sneak peek at the product of the future!

COOKING IN THE MICROWAVE IS SMART…Requires minimal fat content, so it’s healthier. Requires less energy than traditional stoves or ovens & cooks much faster, so you can save time & money!

First we have the Stack Cooker.

This was the first piece I received from Tupperware as part of my Business Kit.  Up until that point, I NEVER cooked anything in the microwave.  In my mind, the microwave was just for "reheating",

Then this baby came into my life and I made a cake in 9 minutes!  Yes 9 minutes and it was AWESOME.

I made a meatloaf in the microwave in this baby and even my picky hubby (sorry honey) liked it!  And a whole chicken ... yes whole, not cut up into pieces but a whole chicken popped into this baby with some stuffing.  But the exciting part was it was all done at about 6 minutes a pound and was so juicy!

So you see this one was a winner and I still to this day think about what I can make during the week when I don't have a whole lot of time to cook but still want to have a nice dinner on the table when hubby comes home.

Then we have the Smart Steamer.

We are not big fish eaters, but I have done a really nice salmon in here that was AWESOME.

I use this the most to steam my veggies (and with it being summer and LOTS and LOTS of FRESH veggies around it is constantly in use) for lunch or dinner.

I make hard boiled eggs (10 eggs / 10 min) so I always have a great portable protein source or something to quickly make an egg salad for lunch.

What I really like about this is that it truly does steam the food in the microwave and not cook and steam because the base actually has metal enclosed inside so the microwaves can't get to the food - only the water.

And then we have the
Product of the Future.

The Microwave Pressure Cooker!

I just earned this one and can not wait to try it out!  I am hoping that it will be in a mid-month brochure or in the Spring Catalog, because I know it is NOT in the Fall/Holiday Catalog that just started over the weekend.

I am hoping that I will get this delivered to my door soon so I can start "playing" with my food in this one.

I just saw the youtube video of this one and I KNOW I want to see this one in everyone's home.  As soon as the video is available for public viewing, I will share here so that you can see this baby in action.  But until then, trust me when I tell you it will be an AWESOME addition to your kitchen so be on the lookout for it.

Now to purchase the Stack Cooker or the Smart Steamer, you can jump on over to my Tupperware Site or join my Current Online Party (top right sidebar for link to invite yourself) I really don't think you will be disappointed - I know I haven't been.

There are so many wonderful things available other than these but if you are checking out my site, or visiting here you will know when the Product of the Future is available, or when sales occur.  So I hope that I will see you visiting often.

I think every now and again, we need to be reminded that WE are the ones who ultimately decide how far we can go.

Yes there are financial reasons that we can't do things, but even those at times can be overcome if we just decide that we CAN do something.

If you don't try or at least give yourself the chance to try -- you never will.

So stop giving yourself reasons not to do something
and start giving yourself reasons

Disney's FROZEN comes to Tupperware!

I bet you have seen this all over Facebook ... 
FROZEN is coming         FROZEN is coming 
... well 


You can grab your own FROZEN themed pieces from my Tupperware Site.  

You can also check out the Fall/Holiday Catalog as well ... because Tupperware has released this catalog 2 weeks EARLY!  That means you can grab those pieces that you wanted from the Summer Catalog, anything that is being discontinued AND the Fall/Holiday Catalog on the same order (saving on shipping costs) until August 29th!

If you want, you can also jump on my current Online Party, that will be open until August 27th, and be eligible to be my Mystery Hostess.  All you need to do is "invite" yourself, say NO for attending (I know confusing) and then you can order on this party.  Hope to be contacting you as my Mystery Hostess!

What people say behind your back

I really liked this one.

I think that maybe this is something that we should share with our kids, especially our young daughters, since they are usually the ones that worry about this the most.

I think that this would help them cope with the "whispers" when someone says something behind their backs and make them understand that it really isn't THEIR problem it is the problem of those that are whispering!

But it will also be a teaching tool to help them realize why they might not want to be in the "whisper" group.

Sometimes when you bring things full circle, the lessons learned are priceless.

Besides, don't you think it would be a much nicer place to live?
No more fault finding until our own lives are faultless

Tupperware Discontinued items from Summer 2014

I know that sometimes people hold off on picking up things because they think it will be in the "next" catalog and then find out that its not there.  I've had a few requests for things that I might have in my inventory - sometimes I can help, sometimes I can't.

Here is a picture of the things that will no longer be available when the Summer Catalog ends on Aug 29, 2014 so if you want them, now is the time to grab them.  As always you can pick them up on my Tupperware Site or you can grab them on my Online Party (and then you are entered to get something or things as my Mystery Hostess), just "invite" yourself but say you can't attend .. then you can order.

As I said, some of these pieces I MAY have in my inventory, but if I do its probably only 1 or 2. The best thing is to grab them NOW so you don't miss out on something that you really want.

I love the UltraPro pieces ... I can start them in the microwave and then finish them in the oven (which cuts the time in half) or cook in the oven from the start ... I use mine quite a bit.  And the Chef Series Cookware is the bomb!!!!!  Yes it is expensive but then so is other good quality cookware like All-Clad and Calphalon. I always laugh and say that it is the last cookware you will need to purchase - I know I LOVE mine!

Any problems, leave me a message or email me and I will help in any way I can.

If you want to join my team and be able to get any of your pieces at a discount, give me a shout out and I will get you set up so that you can start earning great commissions AND discounts on your personal purchases.

If you just want to earn some free Tupperware - join me as an order taker and we can get you started that way too.

See lots of ways for you to get FREE or Discounted Tupperware!!!

Tupperware's Chopping and Mixing Pieces

I have been asked what the difference is in some of our products that "look" similar.  So I found some info in our support section and thought I would start by passing it on to you and see if this helps you understand why you really need each of these pieces.

Lets start with our chopping and mixing pieces.

First we have the Quick Chef.

One of the  things I really like about this is making my own soft serve ice cream ... sometimes you just really need some ice cream and don't want a huge amount in the house (for obvious reasons) but this one makes that treat possible without a too much guilt!

Next we have the Chop 'N Prep, which I actually use more than I ever thought I would, mainly because of its size.

I thought originally it was just too small.  But I learned that I was wrong in that thinking.

I love to use it for chopping fresh herbs, small amounts of veggies (no more smelly onion hands/fingers) for a quick topping or a salad.

And finally we have our Power Chef

I use this one for all kinds of things, including protein shakes, puddings, and whipped cream.

I'm going to try using it for mixing cakes that I can cook in the microwave in my Stack Cooker (but that's another post).

I'm also going to use it for making home made Mayo for sandwiches and as a base for creamy salad dressings.

As you can see, each have their own unique uses, and yes I have all three, mine just happen to be in green and not this really sharp blue color.

Remember that you can purchase any of these products and so much more on my Tupperware Site, or jump onto my current online party, see top right sidebar.  Or you can have your own Tupperware party and earn Hostess credits without having to clean the house and organize an at home party ... Talk to me and let me explain.

Are you making mistakes?

I saw this and thought that it really puts it all into perspective...

What do you think? 
 Are you still making mistakes?   You are?  GREAT.
 Guess that means you are still trying and haven't given up!

Tupperware's Exclusive Frozen-themed Products

I think that everyone that has children under the age of 15 has seen the movie Frozen at least once or has a child that has been talking about it constantly.  Or at least it seems that way.  It really was an awesome movie last year and I believe it is either already out for your movie collection, or it will be soon.  I think I saw something on iTunes the other day.

Tupperware has created their own EXCLUSIVE design for their Frozen-themed collection, that I think will be perfect for the "Frozen" lover in your house.  There are some really great pieces in the Fall/Holiday Catalog that was to be officially available for purchase on August 30th, BUT the good news is you can start purchasing from the Fall/Holiday Catalog, including the Frozen Collection starting THIS Saturday August 16th!!

The tumbler set, includes all 4 of the tumblers shown here for just $28!  Is that not unbelievable??

This is a set of 4 12 oz tumblers with liquid-tight seals and a flip-top spout.

They would be perfect for road trips or sitting in the bleachers at a siblings Fall Sport Game or Practice.  No more whining that they are "thirsty" and "need" a drink from the concession stand!

The lunch set is PERFECT for school lunches.  PERFECT for weekend trips out to the park, the soccer fields, the football fields....  
And at just $24  how can you go wrong??

Set Includes 
  • Sandwich keeper
  • Small Packable Container
  • 12 oz tumbler

As I said before, the "Frozen" pieces will be on an EARLY release, as is the ENTIRE Fall/Holiday Catalog, starting THIS SATURDAY AUGUST 16TH.  But here is the thing, I know I can order anything from the Fall/Holiday Catalog (as well as the Summer Catalog for these next 2 weeks) at a physical party, but I don't know for sure if it will be available online until August 30th.  

So if you would like to have anything from that catalog, like these Frozen-themed pieces above, you can try my Tupperware website or you can contact me and I will call you for your information and enter your order with a credit card, on my current party.  
This will get you: 
1) the Frozen-themed products you want early and 
2) give you a chance to be my Mystery Host/Hostess.
  (remember everyone who orders on my current party is entered for a chance to be my Mystery Hostess)

Think about the up-coming Holidays.  You could be getting the Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse Snack sets (remember only available until August 29th) AND the Frozen-themed sets on order for a special ones birthday or holiday present and not have to be running crazy in the shopping crowd who seem to lose it as the holidays approach.

I know I am already taking orders ......... and would love to add yours to my list to be ordered on Saturday.

Will your absence be noticed?

Sometimes you see something that is just so perfect, you want to share without saying too much about it.

Sometimes the words or picture is just so profound, so deep it needs no explanation.

I hope that in the long run, my absence will be felt.

What do you think?

Mid August Tupperware Brochure!

The mid-August Tupperware Brochure comes out tomorrow!
But that means that the mid-July Brochure ends tonight at midnight ... so if there was something in that brochure that you were interested in ... you NEED to do it today!

Personally I love the freezer set - I can separate "family" size packages and freeze.  Put together your fruit in the smalls and have your ingredients all together for a morning smoothie.  And then the Power Chef System is an awesome product for camping, power outages or just everyday use - a whole lot easier to clean (cause most of it goes in the dishwasher) than a big blender.  You could pick up any of these items on my Current Party  just say no when it says, do you want to attend this party.  

And remember if you are thinking of joining Tupperware, now is the time to do it because of the great deal available until 4PM today EASTERN time.  You could get a 3 pc knife set, a $69 value, for FREE and the possibility of the completer set ($99 value) also for FREE.  There is the picture of the starter kit at the bottom of the flyer above.

These are not available until Saturday August 9th, but you can order those on my Current Party starting SATURDAY, but you can check it out and see what you might want to put on your order, especially the back to school items or those short term items!

These items are only available for a short time --- ENDS AUGUST 29th.  I bet certain items will be selling out quick ... can you guess which ones??

Remember when you order, do so on my CURRENT party, so that you can be in the running to be my Mystery Hostess, just invite yourself, so no for attending, so you can order.

Or how about using it for a weekend special breakfast
Or for snack time when your child gets home from school (or when I got home from work)

I can see these as a special place setting for when your child is at grandmom's or for when the baby sitter is coming so mom and dad can have dinner out.  These would be great - mom can put their favorite foods together so all you need to do it take it out of the fridge.  I can think of so many things to use these for.

We have all kinds of things available in this month's (mid-August) brochure that will help make school lunches as easy as possible.  All kinds of great containers to keep sandwiches, snacks, treats and drinks safe for travel to and from school.  You can check them all out on my Tupperware site or you can invite yourself to my current online party by clicking the link at the top of the page.  Remember there is always a party going on on my page, and each month I pick 1 person who has ordered on that party to be my mystery hostess.  You just never know ...... one time it could be YOU.

Here's the latest from Tupperware!  
I had to jump in here and share this one.
Calling all Tupperholics (even those that don't realize that's what you really are), If you want to get all the deals & squeals from the new fall/holiday catalog, (and there are some super awesome things coming in that catalog by the end of the month) then you need to sign up.  Become a Tupperware Consultant before 3:30 tomorrow afternoon, and with just $30 down plus tax & $69 in 60 days YOU will get the Tupper discount PLUS the sampling discounts. PLUS a FREE $60 knife set! And when we get you to $450 in sales (samples count) by Aug 29th, you get the $100 completer knife set for FREE!!!   Think about Holiday gifts too!  Message ME, Email Me .... Trust me YOU WANT to try this for 60 days and see if you could be making holiday or vacation money by PARTYING!

Summer's End doesn't just mean vacation ends and school starts ...

I know if you have school aged kiddos you are working feverishly to get everything you need to get them ready for the new school year.  If your kids have already started school, you may be dealing with the "we are going green" even at lunch time chants.  Mom if you are still using those plastic bags and aluminum foil, you so have to get with the program.

Here is where Tupperware comes in.  Starting on Saturday, you can get an entire weeks worth of lunch box pieces for just $75.  Now before you start cringing or skipping on by, think about it.  How much do you spend on plastic bags?  How many times do your kids come home starving because they said they couldn't eat their sandwich because it was all wet and soggy and smushed?

What I like about these pieces, well besides the obvious, is that the way they put these together you can order the whole set, all 5 sets of 5 OR you can just order the sets you think you will use.  Personally I like the entire set (yes I have a complete set for my lunches for work) but if you don't think you will use the TupperMinis (great for salad dressings, condiments or mini snacks like M&Ms) you don't have to order them.  I actually keep a Mini in my purse with some snack items so I'm not tempted to stop and get a big bag of M&Ms or Dove pieces.

We have some great lunch box sets that have the lunch "bag" and lunch pieces like the Sweet and Sassy Lunch Kit with a super kit Pengui bottle for your drink.  This piece is available right now OR if you wait and order it on Saturday, with a $75 order (see those lunch box pieces would be perfect), you could get this Sweet and Sassy Set for just $20! 

Or if you have guys your getting ready for home-made lunches for school we have the Urban Eco Lunch Kit that is really a great idea.  This one is also available right now, so if the man (big or little) in your life needs a lunch kit - this would be perfect.  Sorry no sale on this one.

And the best part ....... not only do they come with the lunch pieces shown, those sets I showed you above, will fit in these as well (a 5 piece set from mini to tumbler) - so you would be set for the whole week and more!

If you are trying to get your kids to drink more water (or juice or milk or whatever) our Pengui bottles are so cute!  You can get 1 or 2 or 3 and of course you get to pick the color of your choice.

I've used one of these bottles for jelly beans but that will be our secret ...... unless you want to try it too.

If you Spiderman is THE thing in your household, this could also be a perfect solution for your lunch time dilemma, that is available today.  I love the graphics on this one. 

But if you are more of a Disney Fairies lover, I always loved Tinker Bell, this would be the set for you, also available today.

There are so many solutions for lunch time at Tupperware in the Go Green movement.  There are even more solutions that you can find on my Tupperware Site.  

If you are going to purchase any of these pieces, consider ordering from my Current Tupperware Party.  I will be selecting 1 person who orders on this party to received a "gift or two" as my Mystery Hostess.  The gifts really depends on how big the party becomes.  So YOU get to determine how big the Mystery Hostess prizes are.

To order from my Current Tupperware Party, click on the link, enter your Name and Email Address and then click No, under where it says add a comment.  Then you can place your order on this party and be eligible for the Mystery Hostess prize.  Any questions or problems, just leave me a message or email me and I will get back to you asap.

Wine Vs Coffee

I saw this the other day, and I did share it on my Facebook page ... but well it's just too perfect so I'm sharing it here for anyone who may have missed it earlier.

So this morning I am having some coffee ... ok a LOT of coffee.

Some time this afternoon I'm sure I will be switching to wine .........
lets face it, it will be 5 o'clock somewhere and by then, I am almost positive SOMEONE will have done something so stupid even I can accept it without a little "help"

Please share if you agree.

Xpressivo for You

Are you a coffee lover? 
A lover of a good espresso, cappuccino and lattes? 
Are you a "regular" at Starbucks, where everyone knows your name ... or at least your "addiction"? 

Now, I refuse to pay upwards of $5 for a cappuccino or latte so Starbucks does not know my name ... now my daughter is a different story (with her gold card) but when she is in the "real" world (that would be once she graduates from college) I bet that will stop or at least slow down.

But back to the reason for this post.  If you have answered yes to at least one of those questions above you need to check this one out.

I present to you the Xpressivo X1 machine, shown here in black with the optional electric milk frother.

X1 Specifications:
  • Expected Retail Price: $199
  • Make savory espresso-drinks with the touch of a button.
  • Italian-made 19 BAR pressure pump.
  • Fast, easy, and no mess.
  • One-touch button for short (1oz), regular (2oz), and full (10oz) pours.
  • Sleek, compact, and quiet design.
  • Available in black or white
  • Water capacity: 0.8L
  • Transparent removable water tank.

Now if you would like to see this baby in action, you can check out this post. There are 3 videos in this post, one at the beginning and then 2 more further down, towards the end.  When I saw this baby perform as a proto-type in those videos, I was blown away.  It was super quiet, super quick and had a beautiful crema that was created.  I really wanted one right then and there!

The reason for this post, is to tell you about what is coming and to help you get in on the ground floor for a product that I think will be a big winner.  You can buy into the start-up for up to 64% off the expected retail price - but you need to do that soon.  The discount buy-in is only available until August 27th, or until they are sold out, and the first 100 backers option are already gone!  
Yes there is quite a buzz going on here for this machine, so I highly doubt the ground floor buy-ins will last until August 27th!  

Oh and don't worry about coffee pods.  If you get in on this offer, you will receive 60 pods to start (or a years supply) of the best coffee available.
They have teamed up with the best roasters and producers in Italy, who have perfected their craft for over a hundred years. They are going to be using only the finest sustainably-grown, fair-trade certified beans from around the world, they create distinct, savory tastes with each blend.  With 6 different "blends", including decaf, I am sure you will find one that is perfect for you.

They are expecting that they will start shipping in November (its coming from Italy remember) so this could be an awesome Christmas or Hanukkah gift, but you need to think about that now and get in on this deal.

Now I would love to do a "head to head" comparison between this machine and the Keurig Rivo ..... hmmm thinking thinking thinking.   Or maybe a giveaway for you to experience this little bit of heaven in your kitchen.   

Help me get the excitement building to a crescendo by sharing this post, and maybe you could have one of these babies delivered to YOUR door in December!   Cappuccino for Christmas, Santa would be very happy when he visited YOUR house!  Heck it sounds very nice to me.
