Zupas is open in Sugar House!
Since the first Zupa store opened in Provo, I have loved eating there. The closest one to us was in Cottonwood Heights and not the most convenient. So, when we saw that Zupas was opening in Sugar House we were super excited.
Last week I went with the kiddos to check it out.
NetZero Giveaway $300 in Products and Services
One challenge of working from home is finding places to work that have reliable internet. I like to take my laptop to meetings, conferences and workshops. For example just yesterday, I was at an event and needed to pull up my email on my laptop, but didn’t have internet connection. I really wished I’d had a portable hotspot.
NetZero has some great hot spot services available that I’m really excited about. NetZero’s hot spots are reasonably priced and are the perfect Christmas gift for anyone on your list (especially bloggers!) Here are two great options:
- The NetZero Stick is for laptops and works with a PC or Mac. I like that this fits easily into your pocket or purse.
- The NetZero Hotspot allows you to become your own hotspot and not rely on guest access or business wifi. NetZero provides secure, mobile and super-fast 4G Internet connections.
Available in over 80 cities, NetZero 4G Mobile Broadband allows laptop, netbook and tablet owners to access the Internet anytime and anywhere in our coverage area. Simply select a device and data plan and you’re set!
To help spread the word about their new services NetZero is giving one of you the chance to win $300 in products and services. Use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.

Tiny Prints Christmas Cards
It’s been a whirl wind of a month and am so excited to finally be able to focus on one of my favorite Christmas traditions of Christmas cards!
How many of you out there in cyberland still like sending cards? It’s a highlight for me. Why do you like sending Christmas cards? I like sending Christmas Cards because it’s a way to stay connected and let people I love know that we’re thinking of them.
For years I’ve used Tiny Prints and I’m thrilled to share Tiny Prints fresh designs and fun features with you—especially our new Premium DoubleThick™ Matte Paper, their most luxurious cardstock yet. Here is a great video about their new uber fancy paper
This years collection has a merry and bright, yet modern feel. I’m sure you’ll find something you love!
Here are a few of my favorites:
It will be tough to choose just one! Maybe I’ll have to do one for my blog and one for my family? Hmm…tempting, isn’t it?

I love technology. It brings people together for great causes.
Moro connected with Macy’s when a buyer for Macy’s found Moro on Facebook. This is a great social media case study for how social media can help in third world countries.
Moro has made masks and sold about 2,000 of them for carnival. These masks have also gotten the attention of Donna Karen. Moro now employes about 20 people. Half of them work in the factory and the other half work from home. Women are invloved and he sounds like a really great boss He said, “They walk in and out of production, tend to their family and meals” basically allowing them to come and go as need to care for their family.
When I asked Moro “How has your life changed since connecting with Macy’s?”, Moro replied, “It has added prestige to my business and made it so the workers are proud that their things are being sold in many department stores. It gives them a sense of belonging to something bigger than what they were doing before”.
