What's Your Sweetest or Sauciest Dining Out Experience? is celebrating dining out with a Sweet vs. Saucy contest


We all know that big things can happen when you are out to dinner. We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, and other big life moments with our family. We also experience blind dates, connections with lost loves, and a few moments we'd rather not have captured on film.

If you are brave enough to share your Sweetest or Sauciest dining out moment, you just might be rewarded. Visit the Facebook page to share your Sweet or Saucy dining moment and you might win $1,000! Hurry though - you have to have your story uploaded by October 21, 2011.

Check out the Sweet vs Saucy how-to video here:

My Sweet Dining Out Story

I did my own video to capture my sweet dining out story that I'm going to enter. What do you think?

Share your own and share the prize if you win...with me of course!

Disclosure: as a thank you for spreading the word about the contest I am going to be compensated with a gift card and movie tickets. All opinions are my own and this post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published. I purchase certificates on my own and my sweet story is a true story and if I win $1000 I will be sure to share the news with you!

Dear Mix107.3 Are you Playing Me?

Well look at that! I was sitting here thinking,

"It's Wednesday! I need to blog about something!"

You see a while back I decided to give up on posting every day. I just can't. But I figure I can handle 3x a week (Mon, Wed, Fri is my goal) and if I have a few giveaways and reviews peppered in than great!

As I sat down to go through my long list of to-do review emails I got a call.

From Mix 107.3.

Or, really it was some young girl probably working at a call center that is outsourced.

Anyway she told me I can be entered to win $1000 if I'm the 17th caller after the song-of-the-day is played. Then she said all I have to do is give my first name.

And I'm like, "And then what?"

"I give you my name and then what?"

And she was stumped by my question.

Her, "I don't know and then what." 

Me, "Can't anyone call in and win?"

Her, "Only people who are registerd can win. Is your name Janine .....?"

Me, "Yes." (I think I registered on their site once to get a coupon.)

Her, "Ok so give me your first name and then call in when you hear the song and you'll be eligible to win."

Me, not wanting to sound rude since she just said my first name, told her my first name.

And now the radio is on Mix 107.3

And I'm listening for the song-of-the-day to be played so I can be the 17th caller.

And I really think I'm getting that $1000.

What do you think?


WE CAN! Help our kids avoid childhood obesity with Subway and Scholastic (Part 2)

While interviewing Laila Ali and Jared Fogle was exciting, the WE CAN! program and what it is doing for kids and communities across the country is too!

Like the Escambia County Health Department giving inner-city Pensacola kids the opportunity to get in shape.

And the way the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery in Kentucky encourages families to spend more time in nature.

The WE CAN program has tools that make it fun to learn about eating healthy and getting exercise.

For example, I have a sample kit for teachers that includes everything to get started:
parent/guardian letter
move of the day calendar
certificates and stickers
AND - special hologram stickers that turn the certificates into a coupon for a FREE Subway Fresh Fit for Kids meal!

WE CAN Makes it simple to be healthy

If you are a parent you'll want to check out the Learn It and Live It sections.

If you are a teacher or community organizer you'll want to see just how EASY it is to run the WE CAN program for your group. (Think boys/girl scouts, recreation departments, educator, after-school program coordinator, neighborhood coach, etc.)

If you are a health professional there are materials you can distribute to your families.

Some of the materials available I have pinned to the side of my fridge already including the Go Slow Whoa sheet, and the Family Activity chart so we keep these in mind when we start our days.

Make it Happen! Contest

In addition to all the cool learning materials, WE CAN! and the program partners have created an exciting opportunity for your child to share a personal story about staying healthy and be entered to win Scholastic and Subway prizes!

How to enter:
Have your child write a story (or write it together) that tells how he or she eats healthy, stays active or limits recreational screen time (TV or Computer). Has she learned a new sport or motivated the family to start eating better?

Try starting with...
"My family and I stay healthy by eating..."
"Instead of watching TV or playing video games I like to..."

Then head over to and submit your child's story before June 30, 2009 (Mail in entries must be received by June 30, 2009. Visit for official rules and eligibility.)

1 Grand Prize Winner receives: $5,000 worth of athletic equipment for his/her school, Scholastic gift basket ($500 value), Subway gift cards ($100 value), and his/her story published online at and in Scholastic Parent & Child magazine!

6 Runners Up receive: Scholastic Gift Basket ($100 value) and Subway gift cards ($100 value)

I'll leave you with a tip from the Move of the Day calendar...
"Super-size? No way! If you buy snacks in big bags, put the amount you need for small healthy portions in individual bags. That way, it's easier not to over eat."

Good advice,

WE CAN! Series Part 1
