Do you love The Peanuts? I've been a fan for as long as I can remember, and I was very excited to hear there's a new movie coming out. Albeit, it's not coming out until November...but it's still coming. Woot!

SYNOPSIS
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation.  Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron.  From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.

Community Coffee Company: Recipes Made with Coffee!

Oh my goodness, it is absolutely no secret at all that I'm a coffee girl and just recently I did the unthinkable, something I never thought I would do... I tried iced coffee!! Let me tell you, the outcome. While I liked it (surprise! I really did), it's still the hot I prefer. That's not to say I won't be filling up a mug with ice and enjoying my beloved beverage on some hot summer days though, because I most definitely will be. :)

Community Coffee comes in single-serve cups too!
When it's coffee time, I like to have a medium roast (or a flavored coffee). Others in my family love the dark roast. Fortunately, reputable coffee companies like the ever amazing Community Coffee that we all know and love, offers all of the above, and then some!

Community Coffee Company is the largest family-owned and operated coffee company in the U.S.
Community offers high-quality blends featuring 100% select Arabica coffee beans in a variety of yummy flavors such as Pecan Praline, French Vanilla, and classic Dark Roast. For savory meals, use Community coffee in combination with other herbs and spices to marinate meats. For sweeter treats, try coffee in pudding, cake and brownie recipes to intensify the flavor of chocolate.

Cooking with coffee, you say??? Oh yes, if you haven't tried it, you must, must, must (did I say 'must?' give it a go. 

I took the following from the Community Coffee Pinterest Board, which if you haven't been to yet, I highly recommend. These are just a few of my favorites to show you, but there are others. And so so soooo many of them look absolutely scrumdiliumptious!


Coffee Braised Beef Short Ribs

The first recipe I saw that made me giddy was the Coffee Braised Beef Short Ribs. My grown boys love ribs, and if I break out this recipe the next time we're all together, and I may, I'm going to get some serious Mom-Brownie-Points (and who doesn't want those?!?!). :)


Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing
For those with a sweet tooth, how about Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing. I can't even imagine how delicious that bad boy would taste some late afternoon, on the back patio, with family, friends and some Community Coffee.

Pretty good looking, right? I told you so. :) And there's more, there's definitely more (would the chili and coffee rubbed steak tip skewers be calling your name? or maybe the Coffee Créme Brûlée?).

You can learn more about Community Coffee by visiting their website. Be sure to check them out too on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Let me know below, do you like cooking with coffee? Have some great recipes to share? Love Community Coffee? Pull up a chair and let's discuss. I'm all ears. :)

CarPET Scratch Stopper! Now in More Sizes!

Disclosure: This sponsored post is brought to you by AdvertiseWithBloggers.com and CarPET Scratch Stopper.  All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

You may remember me writing about a wonderful product from CarPET Scratch Stopper. It is a genius of a product that easily installs alongside most any door, to easily and effectively prevent cats from scratching up your carpet! You can find my previous post here.



Now due to the wild success of their initial product, CarPet Scratch Stopper has expanded their line to add more sizes!!



Made of a durable plastic, this little beauty can save you a ton of money by keeping your carpets protected from your cat's claws. And it's easy to install and use. Simply place the CarPET Scratch Stopper in front of a doorway, and voila', your cat will no longer be able to tear up the carpet because quite simply, their claws will be unable to grip the mat. There have been many who have reviewed the product, and all have touted it as highly effective, giving it two thumbs up. Two examples can be found here and here.


The CarPET Scratch Stopper comes in five different sizes (see above), and it comes with a limited money back guarantee.

One thing so many cat owners note is that their cats like to scratch up the carpets. I had one reader tell me her cat is relentless at scratching hers. If she shuts a door (intentionally or unintentionally). The CarPET Scratch Stopper products would be a great way for her, and others in the same or similar situation, to take proactive measures to protect their expensive carpet investment. And believe you me, I know first hand how expensive carpets can be.

I like that it's an easy way to keep your carpets protected, that won't be intrusive to your home or potentially hazardous to your cat. It's simple and effective, and that is always a great combination.

Do you have cats, and if so, are they prone to scratching? Would you try this product?

You can learn more about the company and the product by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Pinterest.

I know a certain someone special in my life who might really love a piece of jewelry from this line as a special summer vacation treat, and I may or may not have (depending on if she sees this article or not) made a selection for her that I hope she loves. ;)


The variety of pieces that NameStylish offers is amazing. From mongrams, to names, to single letters and more, they offer exactly what it is you want to make, receive, or gift with an item of jewelry. In addition to that, they also have a variety of styles including vertical, horizontal, engraved, and script writing. I love that there are so many styles to pick from, it makes shopping there oh so easy because there is truly something for everyone.


You can choose from gold, silver, or even colored acrylic, and you can have whatever you'd like written or represented on the jewelry piece you select. They do have real gold too, if you're interested in the pricier, lifelong pieces.

I know my teen would like shopping here, and my mom would too...and that's definitely crossing the age generations. :)

The style doesn't stop there. In addition to their necklaces, you can also select from their amazing line of bracelets, earrings, and rings. Mix and Match at your pleasure, or simply pick your favorite piece. No matter which you choose, you're sure to fall in love with NameStylish. I know I did.

Amwell Offers 24 Hour Digital Care


Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Mums the Word Network and Amwell. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Did you know that a good number of doctor's visits could be conducted effectively without the need to ever step foot in the medical office? It's true. I recently used Amwell to experience first-hand how convenient such a service can be. This digital health practice gives you access to board certified doctors, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Whether you're on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, you are now just three clicks away to care. Amwell doctors can diagnose, treat, and even prescribe.

For my first visit with Amwell, I simply sat on the couch, picked up the laptop and signed in. To get started they are going to ask you for some basic but very important information. Name, age, a follow-up phone number, medical history, what medicines you are currently taking, etc. They will also ask which pharmacy is closest to you, and what your insurance company/policy number is for the visit. If you want to skip any of the questions, you are allowed to do so.


A greeter will come on to explain a little bit about the process while you wait. The one thing she said that was instantly reassuring to me was that while I may not be familiar with the service, the doctors on the other end were very familiar with it and had used it time and again.

At the top of the screen, until it is time to talk to your physician, you will see a note telling you how many patients are ahead of you.



Once the greeter is finished, information facts pop up on the screen for you to see. I thought those were cool and they definitely made the wait time shorter, though the wait time really wasn't that long at all.


You can see my actual screen shot from the doctor's chat. the big picture is my doctor, and the bottom right hand corner is me. Along the right side you will also see a running dialogue of your question and answer session. There is also audio so you can hear the doctor. If you have a microphone you can speak to her/him as well, if you do not, you can use your keypad to converse.

My question was about swimming, and if too much of it could lead to a mild earache afterwards. The doctor informed me wisely that for an earache, the ear would need to be seen in case it was an infection that required antibiotics. I also asked her about chlorine and how to quickly alleviate its ill affects on the eyes. She told me just over-the-counter Visine would be my best option. Because my particular question was not one she could actually help with, she also offered to reimburse the fee it cost me to call. Amazing, right? That's not happening in the face-to-face doctor's office, let me tell you. ;)

I found my doctor easy to relate to, kind, and informative.


I think the Amwell service would be so wonderful for those times when you don't want/have to wait for an appointment. Of course too, it would also be amazing for not having to work your schedule around doctor's office hours. With the doctors readily available 24/7, why would you even want to?

This service gets two thumbs up from me, and I will definitely be using it again. One visit is typically $49 (you will see the timer counting down in the upper-right hand corner for your call time that is still left available). When the time arises that you find yourself wanting/needing to talk face-to-face with a doctor, you can use the following code to get $20 off of your first visit: LOVEAMWELL20 That makes your first visit comparable to or less than a typical co-pay. Subsequent visits have a flat fee of $49.
