Making the Most of Virgin Mobile Custom Plans

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Sprint. I received a device to facilitate my review.  All opinions and bad puns, however, are all my own.

I am frequently asked about the best phone plans out there.  And, to be perfectly honest, my husband works for a major phone company, so I don’t actively seek out this knowledge for my personal use.  Tiffany shared information with y’all about a mobile plan a while back Walmart was offering.  However, I was recently invited to an event with other local bloggers to learn more about Virgin Mobile’s Custom Plans, and was rather impressed by it all.

WhatchaReading

Note: this was initially posted on one of my old, personal blogs, back on January 30, 2010.  There are some “current” event clues that may suggest so…  I stumbled across it recently, and thought the discussion worth re-hashing, as I am constantly in search of the Next Good Book.    I’d love to hear y’alls thoughts on great reads.  :)

 What’cha Reading: In Search of the Next Good Book

The author of one of America’s most beloved books passed away this week.  May you rest in peace, Mr. Salinger.  Your spirit lives on in Holden Caulfield.  How many Americans even knew of this, save for a scarce reference on their friends Facebook pages?  Heck, how may people are familiar with him at all these days?  Sadly, not enough can make that claim…  Shame on us!

The Catcher in the Rye

I digress.  The passing of a true American icon, with no disrespect to the Brittany Murphies of the world (God rest your soul), made me reflect on the literature that has shaped my life, and how many of them left their mark on us.

I cannot begin to explain how much joy I still get from reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.  Please do not confuse these with Disney’s Alice in Wonderland - although one of my favorite movies of all time, it is not literature.  The fact that Lewis Carroll broke out of the mold so long ago, refusing to create children’s stories designed to frighten, ultimately to have a moral, was pretty advanced for his time.  To create a story -heck! an entire world- for the sheer JOY of reading, and fantasy, is still inspiring to me today.  Thank you, Mr. Carroll, for helping me enter the wonderful world of children’s literature.

Nancy’s Pizza {$50 Giveaway}

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Disclosure: I was blessed to receive a gift card to try out Nancy’s Pizza, in exchange for this review and giveaway.  All opinions and tasteless jokes are all my own.

Nancys-Pizza_Deep-Dish

So a few things you should know about me.  Yes, I’m a full-fledged Georgia girl.  Period.  And my husband has lived in Atlanta longer than I’ve been alive.  However, he is from Chicago.  His family is from Chicago, and he has roots in Chicago.  Thus, in the last ten years, I’ve been immersed in a few things “Chicago”, including the cuisine.

Enter: Chicago-style pizza.

We ventured over to the Buckhead location the other day after Saturday Mass, and gave Nancy’s Pizza a try.    I’d had a hankering for deep dish pizza ever since our last trip there in 2007.  So deep dish was long overdue.

But first, we started off with appetizers: cheesy bread sticks!  What can I say, I’m a sucker for bread products you dunk in a delicious tomato sauce.

For the main course, the kids and hubs split a medium thin crust pizza, half sausage, half cheese.  There was nothing left.

And I indulged in my small cheese deep dish.  Holy Mary, motherofpizza!  Yep, it hit the spot – it was the perfect combo of deep and tomato sauce and cheese.  …nevermind the calorie count…Nancys-Pizza-Collage

Because we had a few bucks left on our gift card, we treated the kids to cinnamon sticks.  Ok, fine.  Those ooey-gooey morsels of delicousness were for all of us.  The kids just *happened* to be present at the time we were passing them out.

Overall, we were quite pleased with our experience at Nancy’s Pizza in Buckhead.  The service was friendly, and the atmosphere was fun, and family-friendly.

And who would I be if I didn’t share their coupons with you, huh?  Currently, you can get $2 off any size deep dish pizza, good through 12-31-14.  And one more piece of awesome trivia: Nancy’s Pizza’s midtown location recently launched a mobile app (iOS and Android) where you can order on the go, AND there’s coupons to go along with it!  I suspect there will be mobile apps for more locations, coming VERY soon!

P.S.  My apologies.  You’ll have to settle for partial portions in pictures, and stock photos from Nancy’s Buckhead, as my family was too eager to dig in and eat, before “blog-worthy” photos could be had.

Win a $100 IKEA Gift Card – and Support Devereux Georgia

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Remember a while back, I told you about IKEA’s amazing community outreach, both locally and globally?  I’d like to tell you a little about a great organization, which is supported in part by the Atlanta IKEA store:   DEVEREUX GEORGIA, the nation’s largest not-for-profit behavioral health organization. The youth served at Devereux Georgia are considered high risk and require intensive treatment services. As you can imagine, treatment services for such an organization add up and fundraising is the way to keep the doors open.  The Devereux Georgia Treatment Network (Devereux Georgia), is part of the Devereux Foundation, Inc.  Founded in 1912, Devereux is one of the nation’s leading nonprofit behavioral health organizations with 13 centers in 11 states.

Devereux Georgia

Since 1973, Devereux Georgia has provided new hopes, new dreams, and new choices to youth who are suffering from emotional and behavioral challenges brought on by mental illness, sexual exploitation, abuse, neglect, and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities.  The continuum of care provided by Devereux Georgia includes a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility, community-based treatment programs, Specialty Foster Care program, and a SACS-accredited school.  With Devereux Georgia’s help, youth develop the confidence and competency to achieve once-unthinkable goals such as literacy, graduation from high school, or the acquisition of basic job readiness skills to become successful and productive members of our community.

For further information about Devereux Georgia, please see links at the bottom of this post.

How can you help support Devereux Georgia?

On October 2nd, they will have an art auction fundraiser featuring pieces designed by the youth at Devereux ages 8-21. The evening will also include a jazz trio, dinner, cocktails and a live auction.  The event benefiting Devereux Georgia will be held at the Marietta Country Club, located at 1400 Marietta Country Club Drive in Kennesaw, Georgia. Guests will enjoy dinner, cocktails, and music along with a silent auction showcasing works of art created by Devereux youth. The featured guest speaker of the evening will be Lynn Garson, Esq., mental health advocate and author of the novel “Southern Vapors.”   Ms. Garson will also be joining nationally renowned child psychiatrist, Dr. Yolanda Graham, in a panel discussion on mental health issues and treatment.  To purchase tickets and for more information please visit www.devereux.org/hopeevent or call 770-427-0147.
