It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Papa John’s is getting into the holiday spirit. To celebrate this time of family and giving, Papa John’s revealed its latest culinary innovations, the Philly Cheesesteak Pizza and The Salvation Army Red Kettle Cookie. A portion of the proceeds from each cookie sold during this period will go to The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign, the longest fundraising program for the Army and one of most recognizable sights and sounds of the holiday season.

A limited time product offering through December 28, the Philly Cheesesteak Pizza is Papa’s own take on the traditional flavors and ingredients of the Philly Cheesesteak, stacked up on top of his signature, hand-tossed pizza dough. The pizza is then layered with creamy garlic sauce and thinly-sliced steak made by the famous Original Philly Cheesesteak Company. Additional toppings include fresh sliced onion and green peppers, then covered with mozzarella and provolone cheese and baked fresh for the whole family to enjoy.

The Red Kettle Cookie, another unique holiday twist on Papa John’s popular treat, the Chocolate Chip Cookie, was created in partnership with The Salvation Army to support the annual Red Kettle Campaign. By teaming up with The Salvation Army on one of the most recognizable sights and sounds of the holiday season, Papa John’s is providing customers the opportunity to support this organization by purchasing a delicious holiday treat.

Also, until December 31, for every $25 spent on a gift card purchasers get a free large one topping pizza. Check it out here – http://www.papajohns.com/papacard/index.shtm

 

My Take on the Pizza

I was given the opportunity to try out this pizza and as you know I have two girls. For them this was an amazing gift and we were able to use it online. What we loved was that no matter are we are able to simply go online and get the pizza that we wanted when we wanted it. Ordering online was easy and the pizza was ready when we needed it to be. I remember back in college when we got pizza all the time from Papa John’s. I wish that they had this ordering feature available then. Alas, we were not able to as it was before they had online ordering.

If you have never had Papa John’s Pizza you should. It has amazing flavor and the amount of toppings that you get on the specialty pizzas was remarkable. I, for one am very impressed with what you get when you purchase a Papa John’s pizza and think that you will be too!

Having an electronic gift certificate to order pizza was such a great way to go. I was able to order without having to worry about any money and it covered everything that I needed. With that in mind I have to say that I could easily see giving this to another person this holiday season. Check out the deals on Papa John’s giftcards today!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

During this holiday season you can get a bit lost in all of the activities and hectic nature of the season. Sometimes this can lead to things being not as efficient as you may like. That’s why it is important to have things organized and ready for when you have to get all of your Christmas Cards ready as well as your Christmas presents wrapped. Office Depot has you covered with anything and everything you need to make your holiday run a bit smoother. From tape to labels and bubble wrap, scissors and more, you can find it all. You can even make customized items that are super special, such as calendars too.

OfficeMaxWorkSpace

I was lucky enough to be able to work with Office Depot to work on my own Holiday workshop. As you can see I was given a bit of everything including earphones to rock out to while I was doing my wrapping. All of these items became a part of the work area that I have in my basement and allowed me to be able to get my holiday gifts wrapped in a timely manner and allowed me to be able to feel secure in the fact that I was able to be ready without worrying much.

What does #YourHolidayWorkshop look like? Is it organized, cluttered, or already cleaned out? Let me know, I want to hear about it!

Give Voice Lessons To Go This Christmas #dadchat #giveaway

voice-lessons-to-go
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

I have always been the type of person that has enjoyed singing. I was the young kid singing with the radio in the back seat of the car and I had the high voice in middle school (that they made me sing with the girls – geez).

It was not until high school when I started to sing in a more formal way, first in a barbershop chorus, and then in high school musicals. Finally, I was even selected to be a part of the most select singing group in high school called Madrigals. Beyond high school I sang in college in formal choirs and continued to sing as I could in church and beyond. Singing lesson to improve my overall singing craft.

Throughout all of this I have to say that I never had formal voice lessons. I had great directors hat taught me a ton about singing and about music, but I never took a formal singing lesson, that was until recently. What is funny is that the lesson that I took was not like what I would have expected. Instead it came on a number of CD’s and allowed me to learn at my own pace. That’s right, I had the opportunity to try out Ariella Vaccarino’s Voice Lessons to Go and I have to say that I am glad that I did.

The CD’s are set up for easy understanding and implementation. Each CD is set so that you can easily listen to while you sit in the comfort of your home or when you are on the go. I enjoyed the lessons and learned a lot. I found that the voice repair CD is something that anyone that uses their voice could benefit from. Beyond that though the CD’s really push you to grown and learn, developing a stringer voice that you can use and share with others.

voice-lessons-to-go-for-kids

 

I also received the Kids’ CD too entitled “Voice Lessons on the Go For Kids“. This CD was a ton of fun and my girls enjoyed trying it out for themselves. While my girls are different in their vocal abilities, they both enjoyed the CD and have asked for it to be played a few times thus far and we have only had it for a short period of time.

All of this being said, I have to encourage all of you to consider a last minute unique Christmas gift. Think about a unique gift for that special person that loves to sing or uses their voice on a regular basis. You also could give a younger child the gift of good vocal technique as a part of their own singing. I highly recommend these CD’s as they really work and I think that you too will agree with the results that you see in yourself as well if you too try them.

My Take on the Gift Pack

This was a great gift pack and seeing that I received it right before Thanksgiving I was able to tear into it right away. I have to say that the meat was succulent and the cheese was amazing. For the price this is a great gift for that hard to buy for individual, as you have quite a few gift packs to choose from. I, for one was very impressed and could think of at least a handful of people that would love a gift like this. That being said I would have no qualms purchasing this for myself or for a gift and encourage everyone else to check it out too. I think you will be impressed with the variety that Hickory Farms offers and the quality of the items that you receive is top notch too.

My Take on the Games

Pictopia

If you enjoy games, especially trivia games, and you are a Disney fan, you will want to play this new game by Wonder Forge. The game involves the players with Disney theme pictures and answering questions using a specialized mouse head shape with letters that represent the pictures on the cards. Sometimes you work as a team to answer the questions and sometimes alone.

We found the first time through we needed the direction sheet to assist us in remembering what each symbol meant, but then it was quite easy to play smoothly . It was fun to play and challenging too.
There are over 1000 questions so even if you played through all the picture cards there are five questions to choose from on each card. And don’t worry, the answers are on the back too.
I recommend this game as a new family game. The age range is 7 and up, however my almost 7 year old daughter was able to play it with some assistance reading the more difficult words. In the end your family members will probably be like my kids, asking to play the game again and again!

 

Star Wars Force Grab Game

My daughters love Star Wars movies and all of the spin offs that have come since the movies. This game was a ton of fun. You have to practice your memory and really pay attention to what is happening throughout the game. The rules of the game were easy to follow and the pieces of the game were intricate and ones that my daughters both really enjoyed. All-in-all this was a fun game that any Star Wars Fan will enjoy!

 

Star Wars Face Off Dice Game

This was a fun dice game that offers a very cool dice cup and dice that have characters that you and your family will recognize and love. My kids loved that got to choose whether they wanted to go as a hero or villain and sometimes they chose one way and others times they selected the other. What was fun was that the game is not quick, but will end up lasting about 20-30 minutes, which is a lot longer than I originally would have guessed, but the time was definitely worth every minute spent. The other great thing about the game is how portable the game is. You can take it with you no matter where you go!

My Take on the Game

Get behind the music and take control of the beat and the music itself in this new game. Talk about awesome, I have to say that this game was SO much fun to play and to experience. As someone who is a huge fan of all types of music, this game really takes you behind the music and allows you to be in the driver seat. While the graphics may remind you of of some of the dance games of the past, this game has you become the director and by the end your arms will probably be a bit tired, but the reason is that you are now the conductor and in control, so keep up with the music! I also have to comment and commend the makers on the variety of music selected for this game. There is a bit of everything for any music lover, and I’m sure that as time goes on more music will become available too. If you love music and have always wanted to be in the driver seat to the music that you have heard, strap yourself in and jump on for a fun ride, you will be glad that you did!

What is the Aether Cone?

Aether (www.aether.com), a brand new creative music player that combines voice recognition and machine learning for a listening experience never heard before. Aether is a gorgeous Cone that learns what you like and plays what you love. It’s small enough to fit on a counter and elegant enough to upgrade the décor of any room.

The team at Aether is dedicated to building things that remove the effort and frustration from daily life.  Things that offer up what you want, in the right way, when you want them.  Things that are designed to take the focus off the technology so that you can put it back onto things that matter.  We deliver on this promise by taking a “whole product approach”. This means that hardware, software and services and content are all included and considered together in every product made.

 

PRODUCT FEATURES:

Thinking Music Player – The more you use Cone, the better it gets at playing the songs you’ll love.

Voice Command – If you know what you want to hear, just press the center button and ask out loud for any artist or radio station.  You don’t have to look at a single screen to use Cone.

Portability – Sync multiple Cones together, or take advantage of the 8-hour rechargeable battery to get incredible sound anywhere you take Cone in your home.

What I Think

As anyone that has read my blog before knows, I love technology and I love things that make my life easier. Having a speaker that learns about me, what I like to listen to and more is simply amazing. I have never seen or experienced a music player like this before. It is SO portable and can be used either with or without a wire plugging it in too.

This time of year we are on the move a lot. Going to visit family, friends and more and at many of these events music is definitely a part of the gathering. On a few occasions already I have brought the music player with me to show it off to others, and the reaction always has been one of awe. They cannot believe that a music player can do all of this.
