Coca-Cola Freestyle Machines + Enter to Win 1 of 2 $25 Firehouse Gift Cards

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Coca-Cola.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have an exciting and FUN giveaway to share with you all today! As you all try to wake up from your turkey hangover and get excited for the holiday season.  One of my favorite brands, Coca-Cola, is launching a new mobile application that allows consumers to connect their smart phone directly to the revolutionary Coca-Cola Freestyle machine.

I’m sure some of you have seen these awesome Coca-Cola machines popping up in restaurants.  We visited Firehouse Subs last week and I took a few pictures while I got my made-to-order beverage.  Coca-Cola is an American icon, and one I associate with especially during the holidays. My favorite was the Dasani Sensations.  You can choose from sparkling or regular water and then add flavors such as peach, grape, lemon, raspberry, & strawberry to give your water some flavor.  So good!


The endless possibilities are cause for celebration, and I want to encourage you to go download the Coca-Cola Freestyle app, save your favorite drink, and quench your thirst.

This opportunity is available in participating Dallas Firehouse Subs until December 1, 2013!!!SONY DSC SONY DSC 

People across the country can download the interactive app creating and saving their favorite drinks.  In addition, the app also works with AMC and is exclusive to the DFW area.

From app to dispenser to the first sips of happiness, beverage lovers can download the new Coca-Cola Freestyle app to their smart phone and save their top five favorite brands from more than 100 available brands.

Then, by simply “bumping” their phone against the Freestyle screen or scanning a QR code at their favorite Dallas Firehouse Subs location, taste explorers can select and dispense one of their five favorite beverages

I’ve chosen my fave 5 and now you can too!


Check out all these DFW Firehouse Sub Locations below and remember to download the app before your visit.

Fun Weekend with Friends

It’s been a crazy busy week.  At work and at home.  Geesh….this is the time of year it doesn’t slow down I guess?  We have a cold front right now in Texas and I’m loving it.  We are taking full advantage of building fires in the evenings.  Connor loves to help build fires 🙂D7K_1281

This past weekend I went to a Christmas Etsy market with my good friend Sarah.  She brought along baby Ellie, whom I’ve been dying to see since the hospital.  She is just the cutest….like ever.  There were some really cute vendors there.  The market was located at the Shops at Park Lane and I’d never been there before.  It was outside basically along one main street.  There was an indoor area, and it was COLD!  I am hoping that as word catches on there will be more vendors and it will get bigger in the future.  Who would’nt love a HUGE Etsy paradise?

Cottonelle Helps Me “Slow My Roll” This Holiday Season #CottonelleHoliday

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Cottonelle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CottonelleHoliday


I put up the Christmas tree this weekend.  That signifies that Christmas is right around the corner.  Friends and family will be coming in and out of our house.  I’m and OCD clean freak so I’m always trying to keep things looking tidy.  Of course it’s hard with a 3-year-old who is constantly leaving things all over the place!  My husband and I both work full-time and Connor is in school.  Between our normal everyday lives and the (lovely & fun) chaos that comes with the season, it’s all I can do to keep my head on straight!  Ha ha!

It’s the little things in life that I’ve come to appreciate.  When someone does a simple task without being asked……like…..putting the toilet paper back on the roll when it’s empty???  Can I get an amen?  Living with boys ain’t easy folks.  I think I’m the only person that EVER changes the toilet paper in our house.  When we have guests over one of the first things I do is check to see we have a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom.  That’s the worst feeling having a guest over and leaving them hanging in the bathroom with NO TOILET PAPER!!!  How rude.


Now every time I’m at Target and in need of toilet paper I go to the brand I trust- Cottonelle Triple Roll Toilet paper.  I’m really picky about what kind of toilet paper we use.  With Cottonelle Triple Roll I don’t have to worry so much and I can “slow my roll” by knowing I have plenty of long lasting & quality toilet paper on hand.  This means I have time to enjoy fun holiday festivities with friends and family.  I may even host a few and open up my well stocked guest bathroom 😉

I found a great deal on Cottonelle at Target.  Right now if you purchase a 12 or 20 pack of Cottonelle Triple Roll Bath Tissue you get a FREE 50ct or larger Kleenex!  Holla!  I love free stuff!

Maybe now I can get my little elves to quit leaving their toilet paper on the shelves???

We’ll see how that goes!  In the mean time enjoy those special moments with your family and friends & be sure to print out the coupon above to save some $$$ at Target on Cottonelle toilet paper.

I’ll leave you in the Christmas spirit with this my friends:

“Our finest tissue we bring, pa bum pa bum bum
To lay before your latrine, pa bum pa bum bum,
Rum pa bum bum, bum pa bum bum,
So to save money, pa bum pa bum bum,
When we come”

When we come…..with our Cottonelle 🙂D7K_1484
