This is a great recipe for pulled chicken from cooking light. Spice up a summer cookout by adding this to the menu and it is sure to be a big hit. Between using the slow cooker and the grill for traditional favorites you will please every palate and have very little clean up! http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/pulled-chicken-sandwiches-50400000124261/.

I am fond of www.zulilly.com. They offer such a wide variety of products, anything from home decor to childrens toys and clothing at very good prices. Over the last few years I have saved on birth announcements, shapewear, and gifts by using this site. They are not always the quickest to ship things out but they also are very good about refunds and giving you credits for their site if there is ever a problem. Another great on line shopping experience can be found Tuesday nights on Facebook at www.facebook.com/mareleboutique. This on line store offers the trendiest jewelry, clothing, and accessories for amazing prices. Every Tuesday night they donate a portion of their profits to a charitable organization. And this company is owned by two stay at home moms!
