For the person who has everything…

I’m lucky to be home. I mean, it’s a good thing I was able to get out of Ohio, what with the blizzard and all. Okay, technically? It wasn’t a blizzard as much as a dusting of snow. But I’m from Texas and I don’t know how much snow it takes to keep an airplane on the ground. I’m just glad I made it out safely.

And to show my gratitude, I’m going to give away something special. That’s right, a give away! I love to give away.

In fact, at the airport in Ohio, I gave away iTunes gift cards in Christmas cards to all the servicemen I saw. It is so rewarding to go up to them, many of them so young, and shake their hands, thanking them for their service. On your holidays travels, be sure to give a warm handshake to those who volunteer to serve and protect our country. They are awesome.

Okay, back to the give away. I am going to give away something I know you don’t have and something I know your neighbors don’t have.


Not just any chocolate, chocolate made with camel milk. That’s right, the milk from a camel! How cool is that? There is only one chocolatier that makes camel milk chocolate, Al Nassma. I’m not sure if it’s shipped globally as yet, but one can find it around Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Aren’t you the lucky ones to have a friend like me to bring some back for you? And believe me, if I could have, I would have brought a camel home so I could start my own camel milk chocolate business. I’ll bet you thought I was going to say that I would have brought you each a bar of camel milk chocolate. Yeah, that would have been a good idea, wouldn’t it? Wish I had thought of that. But since I didn’t, I’m going to give away these two bars of chocolate made with camel milk.



Oooh, won’t you be the envy?

The winner will receive two bars of Al Nassma chocolate, one of which is whole milk chocolate and the other has dates. You can keep both of them for your very own self, or you can dip into your holiday spirit and share with a friend. Santa won’t judge. much.

Since it’s Christmas, let’s say your entry for these truly yummy bars of chocolate (I know, I tasted!) is a Random Act of Kindness. An idea that I might have stolen from June, but I like to think of it more as “paying it forward”. There can never be too many acts of kindness. So, go forth and do something nice for someone else, then report back here in the comments. I’ll take acts of kindness all week and draw a winner on Friday.

There are no blizzards today in Texas and it’s a balmy 65°, so I’m going to go play outside with the dogs. Since I don’t have a camel to milk ride.

Wordless Wednesday…with some words…

I like wordless Wednesdays. It gives me a chance to show off some pictures that I have cramming up my phone. Let’s see, since you’ve alread...
