Possibly one of the worst smells in the kitchen is burned popcorn. Even just typing those words, my nose starts crinkling up as if I can smell it already.

You toss a bag of popcorn in the microwave, and step away for just a second to answer the phone, and … ugh. The listening-for-it-to-slow-down thing just didn’t happen, and you overcooked your family fun night.

Here’s the cool thing – there’s an app for that.

Zazzle Christmas in July

UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Congrats Jen B.!

Do you know of friends that have already started their Christmas shopping? I do… And one of my friends posted a photo on Facebook showing a craft store that has walls of Christmas ornaments in stock. (I know!!)

Am I doing my Christmas shopping yet? Heck no, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t see things when browsing sites like Zazzle, and think “Pam would like that…” or “I should send that link to Larry so he knows something I’d like…”

You may have gone to the pool today (we did), but retailers have been blowing out the fake snow for their Christmas TV commercials for weeks now. And many online retailers are offering Christmas in July promotions, to get those wheels turning in your mind.

Continue for the giveaway!


Share a Coke

If you missed my Friday Freebies this morning on B105.7, here’s the rundown!
