Today I’m going to share A few of my favorite things this Christmas season and you should.
I just went to Bath & Body Works, used a coupon and managed to buy 12 foaming hand soaps for $30. I love them and they are my splurge, yes, I choose to splurge on soap that gets washed down the drain. I used to use the cheap soap from Target with a refill jug for $4.50 but I hated the way my hands smelled after washing them and the foaming soap just seems more fun to wash your hands with.
Two of my very favorite Holiday scents right now are Ribbon Candy and Iced Gingerbread. Yummy smells that you can only get once a year, check. Clean hands that feel good, check. Use a coupon and get them for around $2.50 a piece so you feel good about not spending a lot on soap, check.
I am not a coffee drinker, if you know me at all, you know that I have enough energy I don’t need a kick start to my day. Also caffeine kicks up my anxiety and you will find me in a corner, rocking and sucking my thumb. I do love flavored hot chocolate though and this one, is my favorite, Land O Lakes Amaretto! It’s hard to find but if you find it, hoard it! That’s what I do, I buy like 10 at a time, they are about .50 cents a packet so really you are getting 10 hot chocolates for the price of maybe one Starbucks hot chocolate. If you get a small one maybe you could buy one and a half from them, maybe.
To make it even better, I have now started adding some whipped cream on top, caramel topping drizzled on top of the whipped cream and then sprinkle some sea salt on for the final WOWZA! Oh yummyness in a cup, how I love you! If you aren’t a big Amaretto fan they have other great flavors like Hazelnut, Caramel, Raspberry, Mint, Artic White and Irish Cream to name a few.
Finally, my hubby and I have recently discovered the tv series Parenthood on netflix. We are not tv people much but we do like to watch tv sometimes. This is the perfect series for us, we laugh because sometimes we so relate to what’s going on.
Have you watched this show? Don’t tell me what’s happening, we are only halfway through season 2!
Ok I am editing this post because how could I forget about one of my very favorite things that I use whenever we watch an episode of Parenthood!
This little lovely makes popcorn kernels turn into popcorn in the microwave. Add some kernels, no oil or butter needed, place the lid on the container, put it in the microwave, hit the popcorn button and in a few minutes enjoy fresh popped popcorn without gross fake butter all over it. I of course add my own butter and lots of it but that’s the beauty of this baby! No messy pan full of oil on the stove, shaking the pan vigorously for 10 minutes while it pops. I found my bowl at Target in the chip aisle, right where the popcorn kernels are. It was only $8 in the store, it’s $12.99 online but I think that is still a deal! What a great Christmas gift to give with some kernels, maybe a movie and a fun beverage like root beer!
So that’s it, my favorite thins right now, this moment! I love them and I’m sure you will too, really! What are your favorite things right now? Tell me, talk to me, I want to know!
