Welcome To Moe’s

iPod Shuffle Winner: As selected by, commenter #2, Rebecca Hines! I will be in touch to get your information, Rebecca! Congratulations!

One night last month while I lay in bed  “visiting” walls on Facebook (you can’t tell me you don’t go around “visiting” your friends’ walls late at night.  Sure, [you] might call it “stalking” but I call it “visiting”—whatevs!)    I went to one of my social media “boards” (I call them “boards”, but that’s because I’m an old school bulletin boarder.  Sure, they might be “groups”, but I’m calling them “boards” and you can’t stop me, but I digress.)   That’s when I saw a post from Stacie asking who was local to Atlanta and liked Moe’s (as in Moe’s Southwest Grill).
Ok, first thing’s first, you have to know how much my family loves Moe’s.   We’re in there, at least, one time a week.  Some weeks we are in there more.   We love our Moe’s crew, we love how relaxed we can be in there, and we love the food.
So, back to me in bed, iPad in hand, Stacie’s post on my Facebook “board”….
I didn’t even bother to answer the post, I went right to my message box and sent this:
“For serious, the Moe’s thing,.. I’m dying to know more!”
And, with that I was in.   I was to become part of the official Moe’s Blogger Advisory Council.
That weekend [we] were invited to go down to Moe’s where we met the head chef and all the executives.   It was amazing.   I already knew how awesome Moe’s was, but to really learn ( just. how. awesome.) all the good stuff they believe in and do was the icing on the cake (or should I say the queso on the chip?)
Seriously, did you know that Moe’s has a Food Mission which reads, “Moe’s Food Mission is to bring the highest quality ingredients to every guest, every day, everywhere.  We’re always focused on the best possible option – from vegetarian to low calorie ingredients to a variety of ingredients without rBGH, steroids, added preservatives or MSG.”
Now do you see why we eat there as much as we do?

Moe's Collage

It started with the new black dress that I got for $20.00.  I drove down to the Westin Perimter and met all the bloggers involved.  We had some cocktails (which for me was just club soda with lime since I was just coming back to life after having the bubonic plague), talked about ourselves a bit, and then we headed down to Moe’s where a special night was planned out just for us.    When we walked in were were greeted by the spectacular Moe’s executives including the CEO and their head chef.    Waiting for us was a chef jacket with our names on them.   We were all so seriously jazzed about them that it didn’t take long for each of us to put ours on as we prepared to be dazzled by the planned event.   We mingled, ate chips, salsa, queso, and guacamole, played with the Coke Freestyle machine, had a little friendly salsa competition (my team, aptly named ‘The Salsa Superstars’, totally won, yo!), and then we tried out some new items that Moe’s will be unveiling soon.   With our bellies happy and full of good stuff we each gave the burrito assembly line a roll (pun intended!)   So. Much. Fun.
I didn’t want the night to end, but I knew that I had to get home, digest all the food I had eaten,  and get some sleep.   The next morning Mikey and I would set off to Atlanta to meet our group for breakfast before heading to the World of Coca Cola, but I will have to tell you about that in my next post.


For now, I wanted to share some swag!  Moe’s gave me a 2 GB iPod Shuffle.  In our house we all have iDevices, so I wanted to share this with one of my lucky readers.   All you have to do to be entered to win is tell me what you order when you go to Moe’s!   And, don’t worry if you don’t have a Moe’s.  If you don’t, all you have to do is visit their Food Menu online, and tell me what you would order if you could!
The giveaway will end on Cinqo De Mayo!

Disclosure:  Moe’s provided my travel expenses and hooked me up with some swag for participating in this event.   The opinions expressed are purely my own, and even if I didn’t become part of the Moe’s Blogger Advisory Council, I’d still go to my local Moe’s on a weekly basis!   It’s all in the, “WELCOME TO MOE’S!”

It’s 2012

It’s already January 5th.  How in the world did that happen?
Here are some things that have been going on between the end of last year and the beginning of this new one:
On December 28th, Davey turned FIVE!  Lucky boy, it was Moe’s Wednesday, and we all headed there for lunch.  It’s our favorite place to go; not only because on Wednesdays kids eat free, but we totally love their food!  After a week of having Michael gone, through Christmas, he was home and we all enjoyed our lunch together (which concluded with a visit to the Western store where Davey got one of those cute little stick horses, and I drooled all over the cowboy boots.
Oh, and he named his horse, “Horsey the Bomb”.  Or Bob.  Either or works, really!

Davey requested a cookie cake for his birthday.  Five candles and one for good luck, yo!


Mikey and Mama LunchDuring the last days of Christmas break I took each of the kids clothes shopping.  Their Baba & Dedo sent them money for Christmas, and we decided that they would spend it on new digs.
We had a great time each day, eating lunch and shopping.   The only day that was a little crazy was the day that I took Benny and Davey out, together, because, in my opinion, a five year old and an Outlet Mall DO.NOT.MIX.
I also started The Hunger Games!   I’ve since finished it, and now I am waiting for Catching Fire to come in to our library.   I hope it comes in today.   I also want to publicly state that Katniss Everdeen is BAD ASS and totally trumps Bella Swan!
On New Year’s Eve we made a big pot of white beans with corn bread, had Mikey’s buddy over after their bid day of airsoft play, ate chips and dip, and Benny and I went outside and threw pop-its at the ground!  I barely made it to midnight–guess I am getting old—but, I made it and we did out traditional “HAPPY NEW YEAR” shout out to the world from our front porch!
On new year’s day, I found myself in Webkinz hell with Livey and Benny (aka Justice, the evil store that still sells these stuffed animals.



A few days ago, Davey overcame his fear of spontaneously going down the hill on his bike, and rode in the cul de sac for over an hour.  He is a big boy, after all.
It’s been a great start to 2012!
