To help kick off a new outlook on the New Year, Progresso is excited to announce the return of the "Souper YouTM Debut" contest! From January 3rd through March 16th, you can visit Progresso on Facebook to enter for the chance to win a full makeover in New York City. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 20th-22nd. The prize includes roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money. To enter, you´ll need to do the following:

Go to

Progresso on Facebook to learn more and enter the contest. Submit your essay (200 characters or less) telling Progresso why you love their soups that contain 100 calories or less, and why you deserve a chance to win a trip to NYC for a full fashion overhaul.

Progresso on Facebook from March 30th through April 13th to vote for your favorite. Visit the Facebook page to download a coupon for $1.00 off four (4) cans of Progresso Soup and to check out makeover videos provided by MyStyle.com and the Style Network. Be sure to also "Follow" Progresso on Twitter to keep up with the latest news from Progresso.

I've been a fan of Progresso Soups for sometime now. My favorites are their Chicken Noodle soup, Chicken Barley and the Zesty Santa Fe Style Chicken. I love Chicken what can I say! They give you a lot of broth in their soups. I don't drink a lot of it just because there's so much of it in the cans. I do wish Progresso would put more Chicken and veggies in their soups opposed to all the broth. Do YOU want to win a Progresso prize pack?! Read on below!

*Win it!: I received a Progresso gift pack through Myblogspark that included 5 cans of a variety of Progresso Soup, a yoga mat, water bottle, set of aerobic bands, sport headband and two sport wristbands. I also get to give the same gift pack away to one of my readers!

Review: Kathy's Kindle 3 Cozy


I love my Kindle 3, latest generation and have had it for 4 1/2 mos now and my love for reading has grown. I really wanted a cover/cozy to protect my K3 especially since the unlit Amazon cover that I had was causing issues with my precious Kindle!

I had the chance to review a Cozy by a very nice lady named Kathy, who creates these beautiful Cozies. To the left, is the one that I received. She was so kind enough to show the fabrics that she had and even took pictures at Joann's to show me what else was available. I was soooo excited to receive my finished cozie! She shipped it very quickly to me. I instantly fell in L-O-V-E with it! :) It was so lovely that the picture doesn't do it justice. I immediately popped my K3 right into my beautifully made Cozy and viola! It fit perfectly. I love everything about it....the colors, crocheted flower, button and the brown strip across it. Perfect! Thank you Kathy! You can get your very own Cozy for your Cricut machine, Kindle or iPad at Kathy's Etsy shop! Tell her Doreen sent you!

Book review: "Voices of the Faithful"


Recently, I had the chance to review, "Voices of the Faithful" book 1 from the Thomas Nelson’s Book Review Blogger program . I had already had the opportunity to review book 2 sometime ago and was a little disappointed that at the time, Booksneeze didn't have book 1 for me to request. However, I'm so thankful now to have book 1 & 2 in my hands! I love reading the stories of missionaries as I have for sometime now.

"Voices of the Faithful" inspiring stories of courage from Christians serving around the world with Beth Moore is one devotional book you don't want to miss! It has 366 devotions for every day of the year and before each month begins, Beth has something to say to us. Each month has a certain topic. Believers around the world have gone through great sacrifice for their faith and their love for God. Their stories have been told. We must listen and remember them. I really love this book, it's such an invaluable treasure for believers. There is strength found in their stories so that we may live the gospel of Jesus Christ.
