Healthcare 411...

I caught this on KXAN's site.  It gives a good breakdown of what to do if/when the healthcare law goes into effect. Enrollment is suppose to begin tomorrow/Tuesday Oct 1st!  This website gets you started  www,healthcare.gov/ 

Do I need to enroll if I already have insurance w/ the company I work for?  How much? Are there different levels of insurance or the same for all across that board.  When is the deadline to sign up? Penalities?...All these questions and more are answered when you  click here!

The 1st 2013 Fall Visit....

I recently popped in the Home Consignment Center Shops Parkway Bee Cave for a first Fall visit for the year to see what's up w/ Janet and the crew! They got  A LOT of really cool pieces in from  new sofa sets, to patio sets, vintage/funky cool pieces... AWESOME art too. Check out the Marilyn Monroe. Great prices too!  You will save a lot of $ doing some fall decorating w/ the HCC. Janet told me  new shipments of Italian leather and new Macy's pieces would be on the floor for your visit.  It's also a great place to shop on a close to 100 degree FAll day in ATX!  Here's just a small portion of what I  discovered...

Both  Home Consignment Center locations are also taking consignments 7 days a week.  While you redecorate your bedroom, family room, other rooms in  your home, you can save money, and make money consigning your pieces. 
Click here to find out more!

Make sure you like both locations on FB.  Keep an eye out for new posts with new pieces they are getting in all the time.  Then go say hey to  Janet and the crew at the Home Consignment Center Shops Parkway Bee Cave w/ Rose and her AWESOME jewelry selection.  Also say hey to Tracy and the Crew at the Home Consignment Center Arbor Walk w/ Herb and his Fantabulous jewelry selection which includes a big selection of Bling Rings.  Great for future  I dos!

Sunday is National Coffee Day!

Yep, I  know my Honey Ted will be celebrating.  He's a HUGE coffee drinker. He's part of the 83% of Americans who drink coffee on a regular basis. That averages to three cups a day per person, or 587 million cups, making the U.S. the world’s biggest coffee guzzler.

I like a flavored  one every now and then or take some sips of Ted's when he has Caramel Mocha or Peppermint Mocha Coffee.  I wanted to share with you a few things that could help w/ your Coffee  Day Celebration Experience.  How about FREEBIES!
Click here for freebies from  Starbucks to Dunkin Donuts!

There are ways you can celebrate Green to help out Mama Earth too!
Click here for 7 tips to try. Thanks to Shannon for sending these tips to me.   For sure grab a reusable mug/cup for your coffee. Many places give discounts for using their cups/mugs. Starbucks does 10 cents off your drink, which every litle bit counts.  I suggest the ATX Mug! IT ROCKS!

Can you believe it's been 10 Seasons?!!!

Tonight the 2-hour Season 10 premiere of Grey's Anatomy starts at 8pm  on ABC. Click the text box to check out a preview video to get ready for tonight.  I figure I'll have wet eyes at some point watching tonight. For some reason just about every show makes my eyes water at some.  Not many shows do that to me.  It's amazing how time flies, especially if you watch the first 49 seconds of Episode 1 Season 1.  Do you remember this?

Happy Fall is coming

This Sunday (9/22) around 3:44pm is when Fall starts up! Looking forward to a bit cooler weather,
so I can whip out cute boots. Love boot and light sweater weather. Fall Food Rocks too. I've been
hearing more people cooking w/ the crock pot, so I thought I would share a recipe I ran across from
(Hungry Girl) . I will have to put my crock pot to the test. Maybe this weekend to celebrate Fall!

Ooey-Gooey Crock-Pot Apple Goodness
1/8th of recipe (about 1/2 cup): 137 calories, 1.5g fat,
42mg sodium, 31g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 17g sugars, 1.5g protein
-- PointsPlus® value 4*

Dig into a big bowl of warm apple deliciousness without turning on the
stove or oven. The YUMS just keep on coming…

8 cups sliced Fuji apples
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
3 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup all-natural light whipped topping (like Truwhip Light)

Place apples in a crock pot sprayed with nonstick spray. Add lemon juice and toss to coat.
Add brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt. Toss to coat.

Evenly top apples with oats.

Cover and cook on low for about 4 hours, until apples have softened.

Allow to cool slightly, about 15 minutes.

Top each serving with 1 tbsp. whipped topping, and enjoy!


HG FYI: Fujis ROCK, but this recipe can also be made with any type of sweet apples,
like Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, or Gala.

Since today is National Talk LIke A Pirate Day, here's a Rum Drink to give a try!
