Tassimo Review/Giveaway

Posted by Ellie Pongratz at 9:33 PM 792 comments
I am a coffee addict.  I love plain coffee, flavored coffee, I can drink lattes, and cappuccinos as long as I don't have to see the foaming milk.  I know I'm a freak but that's the way I am and my coffee has to be STRONG.  I recently got to review the Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System by Bosch.  I was a little concerned at first because I was afraid I wouldn't get my coffee strong enough.  

Well with the Tassimo T20 after fooling around with it a bit I can get my nice strong (not quite as strong as I like it however) taste in minutes.  I will still keep trying until I get it to the strength I like.  The one thing I wasn't impressed with is since I like my coffee strong you have to stand there and manually shut the machine off before it's done to stop the water instead of just having a setting for stronger coffee.

Standing Room Only

Posted by Ellie Pongratz at 10:22 PM 56 comments

We purchased a Droll  Yankees W1 Winner Window Bird Feeder the other day through Amazon because I love Bird Feeders.  Well this one is cool because you connect it to the outside of your window so it actually sits on your window.  (Pictures Below).  Now this bird feeder sits on the outside of my bedroom/office window.  I have the corner of my bedroom, which is on the 2nd floor by the way, that I use for my home office for all my blogging jobs.  

As I sat at my desk this morning, drinking my Strawberry Shortcake Coffee and reading blogs, and just waking up, I looked up from my computer and sitting in the window looking at me was a beautiful dark red Cardinal.  I tried taking a picture but it glared due to the flash on the window.  So tomorrow I am hoping it's a little brighter out so I can grab a picture without the flash.  So after a few minutes a couple little titmice showed up, then a few more and before you know it it was "standing room only".

EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale Review & Giveaway

Posted by Ellie Pongratz at 3:57 PM 422 comments
How many of you decided to loose weight as one of your New Years resolutions?  I did, well I chose to loose more weight I have already lost about 60lbs.  Don't get too excited because I sadly only lost that weight because I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.  Yeah it's great I lost it but yet I am ashamed that it didn't happen until I was diagnosed.
