The Love Dare - Day 1


A lot of people began 2012 with a resolution, lose weight, start exercising, eat right etc. etc. etc. Usually about three weeks into January those resolutions are just a memory. I don't want that to be the case with me. 

I want to implement some real personal changes in my life this year. One of those is to take action to make my marriage better. My husband and I don't have any major problems, I feel the monotony of daily life has gotten to us though. I think we neglect "us" as a couple.  We need a boost. We also need to improve our communication. We need to put some time and effort into our marital relationship. As Mahatma Ghandi once said - "You must be the change you want to see." That's what I'm going to do.

I decided to take those words to heart and embark on a 40 day journey called The Love Dare. Based on the book "The Love Dare" by Alex Kendrick.  The book is based on biblical and Christian principles and takes you through 40 daily dares.  The dares are done without your husband or wife's knowledge, they aren't to know you are doing this.  These dares challenge you personally to take some action daily to improve your marriage.

I will post a very brief statement daily so you know what the goal of the day is and post the daily dare.  I encourage you however to purchase the book so you get the commentary that supports each day's dare.  I also invite you to embark on this journey with me.  Change starts today.  

Day 1
Love is Patient

Dare
Say nothing negative to your spouse today.  If the urge arises, choose to say nothing.

Follow-up comments
Although this dare might have been a disaster on other days, today went surprisingly smooth and I was able to get through the day without saying anything negative to my husband.  How did you do?

JCPenney - No Sales (almost) starting February 1



Have you seen the new JCPenney ads? The one where there are ladies screaming "No!" while looking at a sale sign that ended yesterday, looking at tags with a ton of markdowns and another one with bunches of coupons falling out of the mailbox? I was confused by them so I did a little research and found out why. As of February 1, 2012 JCPenney will have almost no sales.

Yes. You read that right. Almost no sales. JCPenney is implementing a bold new pricing strategy in response to low profits and third quarter losses in 2011.

  • No more sale stickers on the price tag. Any item that goes on sale will receive a completely new price tag.
  • Sale prices will become the "Everyday Price". JCPenney's current retail prices will be slashed at least 40% and as much as 70%. A pair of jeans that normally had a tag of $19.99 will be $11 for example. Every Day priced items will have a red tag.
  • Some items will be selected to go on sale for the entire month. Swimsuits being discounted in June for example. These items will be deemed a "Month-Long Value" and will have a white tag.
  • Items that don't sell well will go on clearance on the first and third Friday of every month. Clearance items will have a "Best Price" and will have a blue tag.
  • Prices will be in whole numbers. No more .99 on the price tags. You won't see a pair of shoes priced at $19.99. The price will be either $19 or $20
This is a big move away from their current pricing strategy that has focused on giving it's customers the perception of deep discounts and big savings on their purchases. It remains to be seen how the typical shopper will respond. 

Little information is available on their website but they do have hints of what is to come and you can RSVP for the official "event" on their facebook page.

What do you think? Do you like it?  Do you think it will be successful?

Bertolli Frozen Meal Soup 1-hour Meal Challenge



I love to cook.  There are nights though when I just don't feel like it.  I want something easy but tasty and nutritious.  Well I found just the product to help me out  Bertolli Frozen Meal Soups. Bertolli Frozen Meal Soups are hearty and fresh-tasting with vegetables, meats, pasta and herbs individually flash frozen at the peak of freshness. 

I was given the opportunity to try the Chicken Minestrone soup and Bertolli gave me a challenge.  Get dinner on the table with no more than an hour of prep time.  They made it easy.  Bertolli Meal Soups come in 24 oz. packages and go from the stove to the table in just ten minutes. I served it as the main course for my husband and I. I decided to spend the time I saved cooking on setting the mood for an enjoyable family dinner.


I pulled the stemware from the china cabinet to use as our drinking glasses.  It made the table a little fancier for my husband and I and the kids thought it was great fun to drink out of "grown-up" glasses.  I lit some candles on the table to add some ambience.  It made it feel like we were having dinner out even though we were at home.  I also put some soft music on.  The music set a nice mood in the kitchen.  The kids weren't as rambunctious around the table as they usually are.  They took it all in just long enough for John and I to enjoy a quick uninterrupted conversation about how great the soup was.
  

Our chicken minestone was full of chunky vegetables. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the seasoned broth was savory and yummy.  It was restaurant quality.  I served it with some parmesaan on the side and a loaf of foccacia bread that I basted with some garlic butter.  A glass of red wine rounded out our meal.  

I will definitely purchase Bertolli Meal Soups again.   In fact, I am looking forward to trying the other three varieties they offer. 

The new line of hearty, fresh-tasting meal soups are available at Walmart and Target and other grocery stores nationwide and can be found in the in the frozen foods aisle.

Bertolli Premium Meal Soups for Two are available in four varieties:

  • Chicken Minestrone - Roasted white meat chicken, beans, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, tomatoes and pasta in a hearty vegetable broth
  • Roasted Chicken and Rotini Pasta - Roasted white meat chicken, pasta, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and celery in a savory chicken broth
  • Tomato Florentine and Tortellini with Chicken - Cheese-filled tortellini, white meat chicken, spinach and tomatoes in a rich tomato bisque with a hint of basil
  • Tuscan-Style Beef with Vegetables - Tender beef, mushrooms, yellow squash, zucchini, carrots and celery with bowtie pasta in a savory broth
About Bertolli:

With a brand heritage dating back 150 years to Lucca, Italy, Bertolli celebrates the authentic restaurant-quality Italian dining experience. Through their variety of pasta sauces, frozen meals and olive oils, Bertolli brings flavors reminiscent of kitchens of notable Italian chefs. For more information about Bertolli visit the Bertolli website, facebook page or follow them on twitter.

Disclosure:  I received a coupon for the product and was compensated for my time to write this post.  All thoughts and opinions expresses are entirely my own.  For more information please see my full disclosure policy.
