I love finding cool stuff online but what I love more is smart friends who introduce me to cool stuff! Melanie Nelson is the brains behind Blogging Basics 101 and turned me onto a site called Flavors.me. It’s a fun site to showcase your online world whether it be your blog(s), twitter, facebook or linked in…or any number of preset social networks.
Melanie was even able to redirect her personal URL http://melanienelson.com to the site.
Click on the blog link and it’s set up to automatically show your blog feed as well. Click on the twitter and show your tweets. Click and show a linked in profile. Click and showcase your flickr. It’s very cool! This makes it so easy for someone to find out about you and your activities all in one place with the creative twist of allowing you to customize the background, colors and font with one click.
Play around with it and if you set one up, let us know! We’d love to see it!
I think we all know someone who has been touched by Breast Cancer in some way. You may have even been touched yourself. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and One2One Network is working with Milano again, this time to honor those affected by Breast Cancer. Pepperidge Farm is turning their Milano packaging pink – inspiration for the cure!
Pepperidge Farm has launched a Facebook Campaign to encourage consumers to share a “Milano Moment” – one when they realized life is sweet. Personally I have many moments and several of them include Milano’s! Of course there are the obvious moments such as getting married, have a baby, watch the baby take his first step. Maybe if you are a blogger it’s the first comment you got that wasn’t from your sister. The hope is that we can have many moments when life is sweet and that fighting this disease will allow more people to survive and have those moments too.
Awareness is a good thing.
From now through October 31st, Pepperidge Farm is donating $.50 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every Milano moment shared on the Milano Facebook Page (up to $50,000).
You’ll find details on your One2one Network page. Won’t you help us spread the word?

After our fun with protein stains in the last Wisk (with Stain Spectrum Technology) experiment, we got to try our hand at getting out carbs.
Tailgate style. With ketchup. I know you are cringing. Maggie at Dexter’s Super Savvy Mommy and her son took on the task.
And I couldn’t resist posting about them, since cartoon Dexter is one of my favorite scientists! How fitting!
After Dexter got ketchup on the shirt, I wiped the excess off with a dry washcloth. I then poured on the Wisk and rubbed on the ketchup for about 15-20 seconds. I then let the Wisk penetrate the stain for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes elapsed, I rinsed the shirt in warm water and presto, the stain was gone!
He’s so cute and seems like he’s got this science experiment down or at least the cute factor!
We have lots of other scientists at work. See how Anne’s little one works her magic too at Mommy Needs to Work!
Tell us what your worst stain nightmare is!

I love to read any food blog, but these are a few of my favorites because of the crazy good sweets the ladies write about. I am a sucker for cupcakes, and I have found some that are “must read” and “must drool”.
Cheryl at Tidymom.net‘s photography is as yummy as her cupcakes!
“Well, my mom always enjoys a good dessert like the rest of us, but there is one treat she always LOVES…… Ice Cream Floats. A big tall glass with 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream, pour root beer or cream soda over the top, stick in a straw…….. THAT is mom’s idea of heaven!!
This moist nostalgic cupcake will take you to decades past, when ice cream floats (and sodas) were once so popular at the local soda fountain.”
It doesn’t even need to be summer for these floats! It’s such a cute idea especially with the straws as an accent. How do these ladies come up with this? Thanks Cheryl for such a cool idea!
Liz at Hoosier Homemade has a weekly cupcake challenge, and so it’s a good bet you will find me on her blog on that day. Doing research…of course..
“Autumn is in full swing at our house. We’ve gone apple picking, bought some mums, decorated the Mantle and the Hoosier Cabinet, been baking up a storm…and now, making Scarecrow Cupcakes!”
These cupcakes would make any kid get into the fall spirit. I can imagine these selling like hot “cupcakes” at any school fall festival! If you try either of these tasty treats let us know, or give us a link to your favorite cupcake! Y’all probably have some recipe we have to try!
I will admit when I saw some ladies at Type A Mom Conference with iPads I got a little jealous. I’ve been a MAC convert for all of 6 months and now don’t know what I did before I switched.
Wait now I remember. I watched my PC crash a lot!
What makes the iPad even more appealing is how you can dress it up. There are some “fancy duds” out there for them to wear!
I love pink and was immediately drawn to this fancy cover. This would dress it up nicely don’t you think? Available at Amazon.com.
Of course if pretty is not your thing, then go with the whimsical. This etch-a-sketch case made me laugh, and then click to see where I could get one….you know, for when if I get an iPad. Available at GetaHeadCase.com.
Of course this looks more like me. No need for cute. I have stuff to carry. TONS of stuff! Love the setup of the M-Edge cover to keep all your essentials together. More practical and as much as you spend on the iPad, cute is great but I’d stick with functionalities!
