Open For Bids

News flash but act quickly: I have some high Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls up for bid on Tina’s Bake Sale.  Current bid page is listed here.

My balls are posted here on her site

The bake sale cause is for Team For Kids, an organization that provides more than 100,000 kids in low-income areas with health and fitness education.

All bids must be emailed to CHRISTINA.HAUPERT@GMAIL.COM

Please hurry and email her if you’re interested because this is a short sale!  Ends at midnight (Eastern time) Monday May 16th.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I promise to include more than just the dough balls, too.  Like I did for the last person who won and bid on dough balls from me.

In other bake sale news, remember the San Diego Blogger Bake Sale I participated in that was the San Diego “chapter” of Gaby’s Nationwide Blogger Bake Sale?

I donated Fudgy Nutella Brownies

Without the cream cheese frosting

I love frosting but the chocolate chips on the top of the batch I donated worked fine.

Great news: The San Diego Blogger Bakers raised $1750 for Share our Strength, with the goal of eliminating childhood hunger!

Big thanks to Marie of Meandering Eats who organized the San Diego bake sale and all the ladies who participated locally as well as to everyone who participated nationally.

From my last post, it was interesting hearing if your eating habits change when you travel or not, and just how adventurous you are when it comes to sampling local fare.  Some of you use vacations and traveling as an opportunity to dive right into local fare and eat things you wouldn’t normally eat at home, and others play it safer and don’t stray far from your usual habits.

Questions:

1. Have you ever bid on anything?

I love ebay and I love bidding.  I have to tell myself, this is my maximum bid, and no matter how much I think I “have to have” a certain item, I will not go past X dollar amount, even as the auction ending time appears and the bidding frenzy is in full force.

I also like betting.  And gambling.  With other people’s money.  haha!

I am far too frugal to gamble much on my own.  The thought of losing more that 50 bucks pains me!  I think to myself, I could have bought Skylar things with it.  Or a cute shirt with the money, or shoes, or food, or kitchen gadgets, or just saved the money.  Saving money and continuing to be 100% debt-free are huge priorities for me!

So, I do like bidding, but on things I know I can “control”, and that’s a bit different from betting, and very different from gambling, but I’d like to know your thoughts.

2. Anything new or exciting happen for you on Monday?

I ran around and accomplished a lot.  More on that tomorrow.

For now, the beach and a family walk.


I hope some of you bid on the dough balls or the other items up for bids.  Email Tina and current bid amounts are here.

  1. Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
