I had the opportunity to meet some of the people behind CarrotLines at the Vancouver Health Show a few weeks ago and was lucky enough to win a Terra Breads gift basket from them!
Terra Breads gift basket includes a box of Pecan Fruit Crisps (which are delicious by the way), a ceramic coffee mug and a bag of granola.

The Christmas Cheer group at Burnaby North Secondary school has teamed up with McDonald's to raise money for the Burnaby Christmas Bureau. This Friday and Saturday only (November 25-26), purchase any McCafe beverage and $1 will go towards the Burnaby Christmas Bureau. The two participating locations are the McDonald's at Capitol Hill and Brentwood Town Centre. The drinks include mochas, lattes, cappuccinos, americanos and hot chocolate. What’s better is that there are coupons for McCafe drinks floating around that came in the mail, including a coupon for a free drink!
This fundraising effort is organized by students of the school who volunteer their own time to raise money each year to donate to the Christmas Bureau, so go out and support them this weekend!

The Muppets are finally back on the big screen after a 12 year haitus. The story follows Walter, a huge Muppet fan, and his brother Gary (Jason Segel) who must help the Muppets raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theatre from being torn down by Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) who plants to drill for oil underneath the theater. The Muppets have all gone their seperate ways but Walter reunites them and together they put on one last show.
I'm a huge Muppets fan, so as soon as I heard there was a new Muppets movie coming out, I knew I had to watch it. I found the movie a little cheesy but hilarious. There is a lot of humor only adults would get and like most Muppets movies, there are plenty of celebrity cameos including Sarah Silverman, Jack Black and Zach Galifianakis. It's a great movie to reminisce about the Muppets and their history as it includes the original theme song of The Muppet Show, which aired on tv in the 1970's and 80's. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are always really fun to watch and the songs are catchy (Mahna Mahna plays in the credits!). Go watch it!
The Muppets comes out in theatres tomorrow, November 23rd.

Holiday drinks are now available at Starbucks and from November 17-20, there will be a buy one get one free offer from 2-5pm! This is a great deal for a little afternoon pick-me-up, since these drinks are pretty overpriced. Peppermint mocha, here I come!

Attention all techies! The inevitable price-drop for the Blackberry Playbook has finally come. Starting November 18th (November 16th in Quebec), there will be a $300 price drop on all models of the Playbook. The new prices will be:
16gb for $198 (Was $498)
32gb for $298 (Was $598)
64gb for $398 (Was $698)
These are pretty decent prices for the Playbook so make sure you go early to ensure you are able to get one. Don’t let this be another HP Touchpad fiasco – stores may be out of stock within hours, though I think people may think twice about dropping $198 on a tablet. The sale prices seem to be only happening at Wal-Mart, though other stores may follow suite. Remember you can always price match at other electronic stores as well.
