Happy Tuesday!

Guess today's just the day for giveaways! Holly over at Homebody is giving away these super cute ceramic number balls and April at dot... dot... dot... is giving away some Juicy Goodies!

Be sure to check these out!

Also, I'll be having a giveaway in a few more weeks in honor of my 100th post! I'll give you a hint now- it's spicy & relaxing! :)

In other news, Z spent last night helping a guy who flips houses. He's helped him out a few times now, in exchange for this guy teaching him how to do whatever it is he's doing. It gets him some great experience for when we decide to flip our first one (did I mention we're going to do this?)!

I almost died from coffee inhalation this morning. Thank God my coffee cup was mostly empty and I could spit the coffee back in. I almost had coffee spewed all over my desk. I know, you didn't need to know that, but really, it was a scary thing! Thank goodness no one saw!

My wedding photographer asked me to write up a rave about our wedding photos for her new website! I'm so excited for it to launch- I'll definitely share when it does! If you're in the greater Boston area, she's the girl you want (no, we're not in Boston- she graciously traveled for our wedding)!!

Z and I watched Australia last night (Free Redbox rental!). It didn't help that he got home late, but the movie lasted forever! We were up til 12:30 watching that darn thing! Which is not wise when you wake up at 6:15! It was a pretty good movie- nothing amazing, but worth the watch. I just would rather have done it on a night we didn't have to have incredible discipline to get out of bed the next morning. Don't tell, but I may or may not have dozed off for 1/2 hr. this morning while no one was in the office! :)

As promised, here's the Tiramisu recipe! I love it because it's soo simple, you make it the night before you need it, and it gives a certain impressive air when people ask what it is and you say, "Tiramisu", and have to explain to them that it's a light Italian dessert. Oh, and it's yummy! :)

What You Need

2 Tbsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee
1/4 cup boiling water
32 Reduced Fat NILLA Wafers
1 tub (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP FREE Whipped Topping, thawed
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Make It

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog... it is so easy to forget that there is *someone* out there who knows all and sees all and has a plan... :) It's always nice to have a reminder...
