Favorite Things: Christmas Wish List Edition

I may not be Oprah, but I do have a Favorite Things Christmas Gift List that I’d like to share with you. I used to love watching her Favorite Things show. People were so excited to get a pair of Oprah’s favorite cashmere pajamas and a fancy coffee maker.  Well, cashmere makes me itch and I don’t drink coffee, so you won’t find either of those things on my list. And, sorry, I won’t be giving anyone a car. But I will share some of my favorite things with you. Perhaps my hubby will read this post and I won’t Read More

My Favorites Things – Holiday Edition

Is it okay to start talking about the holidays yet? Sorry, but it’s my favorite time of the year, probably because many of my favorite things happen in the next two months. I figure once Halloween has past and November has arrived that I can start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas and all the craziness that will take place between now and New Year’s Day. Maybe you celebrate other holidays either instead of or along with the ones my family celebrates. Either way, life gets pretty busy between now and the end of the year. I was in a very Read More
