These are a few of my favorite things...

I know that a couple of times in the past, I've done a "favorite things" post. It's been a while, so I thought it was about time I do another one!
This creamer is a staple in our fridge. I like using plain cream mixed with this to add just a little sweet when I am craving sweet...

We hardly use any other cups/glasses, but these. LOVE Tervis Tumblers and I know I've posted about them before, but really, if you've never used them, you should try. Ask ANYONE who uses them, they will agree. The Hawkeye one below is what we have. We drink our coffee in it and it stays hot forever, we drink our cold drinks in it and they stay cold forever and the cup doesn't sweat. We use the Tervis Lids with ours too.

Modern Family...seriously hilarious. You must watch it if you don't already...must.
Oh my goodness, I love my Prius with these gas prices! Yikes! I love it anyway, but with these gas prices, I cannot imagine not having it! We spent the most we've ever spent to fill it up the other day and that was $27. And we won't have to fill it up again for close to 2 weeks. Seriously, the best car I've ever had!
I had wanted Scentsy stuff for a few months before getting it from my in-laws for Christmas. I'm addicted. My house smells delicious! And I want like 250 of the scents...it's so hard to decide! And it's safe for kids...the wax doesn't get too hot to touch and no flames!

When I worked for Wells Fargo Health Advantage, I attended a Dental Conference in NYC and was introduced to this awesome product! Best.Toothpaste.Ever.
And I am not even kidding...I wake up every morning and think, "I love this house." Really, I do love it! I can't say that I've ever been happier with a home I've lived in. I thought after a while I'd get used to living here and things I didn't like about it would start to pop up (I am aware it's only been 6 weeks and that very well could still happen!), but that hasn't happened yet. In fact, I find more and more things I LOVE about our house as each week passes!

A Kind Of Original (but actually copied) Song By: Jennie Peakin
(to the tune of the 'original' Favorite Things song)
"Creamer in coffee and coffee in Tervis
Modern Family and cheap gas oh my goodness
Scentsy and toothpaste, the joy my home brings
These are a few of my favorite things!

When it's winter
And it's freezing
When I'm feeling saaaaad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feeeeeeel so baaaaaad!!!!!!"

you might not know this, but i am having a huge open house party on april 3 (tentatively) and scentsy will be there! along with mary kay and possibly pampered chef, tastefully simple and upper case living.
so save up! profits going to the adventure project.
(no...it really isn't public knowledge yet, but the planning is in the works!)

That's the day after we get back from Florida. I am definitely going to try to make it though!!! :) If I can't make it though, I'll place an order for you to put in for me.
