Time goes by quickly

It was only a year ago that Bryan and I were dealing with the devasting news of Nicolas and his diagnosis of Trisomy 18.  Not a day passes where I don't think of him with tears welling up in my eyes.  I continue to grow in so many ways.  Sparks of creativity and powerful writing pushed me to redefine who I thought I was. Even with my accomplishments (finished my Masters, ran a half marathon, got my probabationary black belt), those accomplishments do not fill the void that Nicolas filled in my heart.

Nine months ago we said goodbye, but only for this lifetime.

Now to share the ultra fantastic not another baby...BUT something else amazing. We were selected as a finalist for the Cub Plenty for Twenty contest.  See announcement below.

What can you make with $20? Plenty!
Finalists Announced, We Made It!

Recently Cub Foods advertised a contest to challenge their customers to see what they could make for less than twenty dollars.  The grand prize -- a year’s worth of groceries from Cub Foods.  Who could pass up that opportunity? I certainly could not.

Here is a link to our video 5 Great Dips & Homemade Chips

Limit: one vote per day per Facebook account.  So come back and vote for us daily!

Watching the Cub Foods commercial I thought myself how hard can that be.  I set out to conquer the Plenty for Twenty challenge.  With my daughter, Noelle, at my side, we prepared Five Great Dips: Black Bean and Roasted Pepper, Quick Queso, Tomato Salsa, Spicy Chipotle, and Guacamole accompanied with baked tortilla chips and a refreshing Cran-Rasberry Spritzer all for $19.61.  Plenty of food for your hungry football fans!

Cub Foods is leaving it up to the public to vote on Facebook for their favorite entry.  Public voting starts Friday, September 30th at 11AM and ends the following Friday, October 7th.  With lots of luck and maybe a little help, we have a chance to win the grand prize.  Remember to vote daily!

Challenge yourself…see what you can do with just twenty dollars.
