Mimi’s Cafe “Go Red for Women” Starts February 1st

I love February for a variety of reasons, it’s a short month, it usually has pretty good weather, and it’s a month of love and taking care of our hearts (emotionally and physically!).

During the month of February, Mimi’s Cafe will be celebrating  American Heart month with  Go Red For Women!

Mimi’s Cafe is raising awareness throughout February, American Heart Month, by participating in the American Heart Association’s mission to turn America red. In its second year supporting Go Red for Women, Mimi’s is dedicated to shout louder and stand stronger for the fight against heart disease, the number one killer of women.

  • Beginning the first of February, Mimi’s will recognize guests who show their support by wearing red with a FREE cup of signature soup.
  • Guests that donate $1 will receive a red heart-shaped tribute card to inscribe and post on a giant in-restaurant red dress display.
  • A limited-edition sparkle red dress lapel pin will be given to those giving a $5 donation.
  • As a thank you for every donation, donors will receive up to $30 in Mimi’s savings.
  • Every Tuesday throughout the month, Mimi’s will thank warm-hearted guests that donate with a warm cup of FREE soup.

It’s giveaway time!!! !  I have (2) $25 Mimi’s Cafe gift cards to give away to 2 winners.

Celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Disney’s Classic Adventure, Peter Pan


How did the weekend go by so quickly? It seems I blinked, and bam, weekend over. We’ve had a few rainy days here, and we have been in movie watching mode. A few days ago we received an early copy of the Peter Pan 60th Anniversary Diamond Edition Blu-ray DVD, and it certainly was put into good use.

We sat down and watched the newly restored digital edition and we were in for quite the treat!  The “Peter Pan” Diamond Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy & Storybook App) comes with some great  bonus features that include – the groundbreaking feature Disney Intermission, Growing up with Nine Old Men short film, never-before-seen Deleted Scenes and a never-before-heard Deleted Song.

It’s one of your favorite movies, just sharper, thanks to a new digital restoration and high definition picture and sound. The kids and I watched it a couple of times. I love the film. I found myself humming, “you can fly”, over and over. I also remembered that we can always learn something new from a film, even after having watched it over a dozen times. My daughter experienced this for herself. She’s a huge Tinkerbell fan and was so upset when she realized just how jealous, Tink was of Wendy. It was pretty funny!

The Diamond Edition of Peter Pan, is one that has to be added to your collection. It’s a classic! The Diamond Edition hits shelves on Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 or pre-order here.
