Hey bargain hunters! Just found this list of free stuff you can get on Black Friday this year.
Freebie: This doorbuster freebie was actually the first 2013 Black Friday ad: a free JCPenney 2013 Snow Globe. In response to the frustrated outcry of shoppers who went home globeless in 2012, JCPenney has brought back the popular keepsake. No word yet on when you'll have to show up in-store to bag one, though, so stay tuned for more details on how to get yours.
Seattle's Best Coffee
Freebie: Whether you're standing in line at midnight on Black Friday or heading back to the daily grind on Friday morning, Seattle's Best Coffee wants to perk you up with a free sample of its medium roast coffee. Just head on over to its Facebook page anytime after November 13 and sign up to have that liquid caffeine delivered directly to your IV mailbox.
Freebie: Although human presents tend to be at the top of our Black Friday shopping list, PetSmart wants to make sure that your favorite feline or canine isn't forgotten during the biggest shopping day of the year. For the first 100 shoppers, retail stores are giving away free pet stockings pre-stuffed with dog and cat treats and $130 worth of in-store coupons.

It's almost holiday party season....and I am working out extra hard NOW, because I know when it comes to all those holiday treats....I have ZERO willpower. Haha! Nutrition experts say that if you don't want to pack on the pounds during the holidays, you need to know what you are eating or drinking.....and just budget your calories accordingly. Here's hoping this list helps you figure out which drinks to indulge in....and which to avoid.

You may have heard about the website, Don'tdatehimgirl.com , where women warn other women about guys who treated them terribly. Well, now there's a new public shaming site: www.she's a homewrecker.com . Women go on this site to expose the women who ruined their marriage/families. What do you think? Are these women providing a public service or does this site have dangerous potential to ruin someone's reputation and life?
This is a few years old, but somehow is just now making it's online......and it's hilarious. Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry doing some Boyz 2 Men karaoke. I could try to describe this to you.....but I think you need to experience the magic yourself! haha!
p.s. I am SO doing this song next time I go karaoke-ing. LOL
I've been hearing about the Starbucks "secret menu" for years, but have always been afraid to try to order one of these drinks.......because, with my luck, I would get the one person who had NO clue what I was talking about. Haha! I might have to break down and order one of these new ones, though........that Cookie Dough Frappucino sounds AMAZING!
Cookie Dough Frappuccino
This drink boasts some pretty crazy flavors. Start with a Chai Creme Frappuccino with soy milk. Add two pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup for a Tall, two-and-a-half for a Grande, and three for a Venti. Blend in java chips and whipped cream. Top with chocolate whipped cream (instead of original) and drizzle with mocha syrup.
If you're getting sick of the regular Pumpkin Spice Latte then this recipe is killer. It requires ordering a Pumpkin Spice Latte and adding caramel syrup (one-and-a-half pumps for Tall, two pumps for Grande, two-and-a-half pumps for Venti, three pumps for a cold Venti). Then, add Chai Syrup (one pump for Tall, one-and-a-half pumps for Grande, two pumps for Venti, and two-and-a-half for a cold Venti). Finally, top with whipped cream, pumpkin powder, and caramel drizzle.
Cake Batter Frappuccino
This delicious drink uses a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino base and adds one pump of almond syrup for a Tall and two for a Venti.
Who wants their own personal robot bartender? If these guys meet their Kickstarter goal, you very soon could have one......for around $3000. the "Monsieur" will make you cocktails on demand......warn you when you've had too many.....and even call a cab for you or your friends.....no tipping necessary, but then again, it won't shamelessky flirt with you, either. ha! What do you think?
Thanks to Prevention Magazine for this list of the 5 places in a restaurant that carry the most germs. I think I might just start taking a bottle of hand sanitizer with me when I go out!
1. Restaurant Menus Have you ever seen anyone wash a menu? Probably not. A study in the Journal of Medical Virology reported that cold and flu viruses can survive for 18 hours on hard surfaces. If it's a popular restaurant, hundreds of people could be handling the menus — and passing their germs on to you. Never let a menu touch your plate or silverware, and be sure to wash your hands after you place your order.
2. Lemon Wedges
According to a 2007 study in the Journal of Environmental Health, nearly 70 percent of the lemon wedges perched on the rims of restaurant glasses contain disease-causing microbes. When the researchers ordered drinks at 21 different restaurants, they found 25 different microorganisms lingering on the 76 lemons they secured, including E. coli and other fecal bacteria. Tell your server that you'd prefer your beverage sans fruit. Why risk it?
3. Condiment Dispensers
It's the rare eatery that regularly cleans its condiment containers. And the reality is that many people don't wash their hands before eating, says Kelly Reynolds, Ph.D., a germs specialist and public health professor at the University of Arizona. So while you may be diligent, the guy who poured the ketchup before you may not have been, which means his germs are now on your fingers — and your fries. Squirt hand sanitizer on the outside of the condiment bottle or use a disinfectant wipe before you grab it.
4. Restroom Door Handles
Don't think you can escape the restroom without touching the door handle? Palm a spare paper towel after you wash up and use it to grasp the handle. Yes, other patrons may think you're a germ-phobe — but you'll never see them again, and you're the one who won't get sick.
5. Soap Dispensers
About 25 percent of public restroom dispensers are contaminated with fecal bacteria. Soap that harbors bacteria may seem ironic, but that's exactly what a University of Arizona study found. "Most of these containers are never cleaned, so bacteria grow as the soap scum builds up," says microbiologist Charles Gerba, Ph.D., who directed the study. "And the bottoms are touched by dirty hands, so there's a continuous culture feeding millions of bacteria." Be sure to scrub your hands thoroughly with plenty of hot water for 15 to 20 seconds — and if you happen to have an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, use that, too.
Did you ever watch "Man Vs Food" and kind of cringe at the amount of food host Adam Richman would put away? Yeah, it would literally make my stomach hurt to watch him and I would joke that he would explode one day. Well, since leaving the show, Adam has gotten serious about getting healthy and to date, he has lost 60 pounds! He talks about it in this video interview.
