A Few of my Favorite Things

Since it's Christmas Eve I thought I would make a list of a few of my favorite things. NOw this isn't really the riandrops on roses kind of list...but it's a few of the things that help make these long winter months more enjoyable. Obviously my hubby, friends and family are always a favorite....but I don't think of them as THINGS so they aren't on the here they are in no particular order...A Few Of My Favorite Things

1. I'm loving herbal tea..peppermint is my favorite. Tea gives me that warm cozy feeling, and it's a lot better for me than hot chocolate or coffee.
2. Scentsy. It makes my house smell so nice without having to burn a candle or worry about it catching my house on fire. Right now I'm burning "Cozy Fireside" and I LOVE it!
3. Pandora. This website allows you to make your own radio station with just the music and/or artists that you like! I made myself a holiday station so I can't listen to all my favorite Christmas songs at's fantastic! Try it out.
4.Clementines are like oranges but sweeter, smaller, and must easier to peel. They are in season this time of year and oh so yummy!
5.I LOVE Christmas movies! My favorite is "It's a Wonderful Life" closely followed by "Christmas Vacation", "The Holiday" (This one isn't really a Christmas movie...but it kinda puts me in a holiday kind of mood so it's on the list), Love Actually", and many more.
6.Latley chocolate pudding has been my weakness. I make the Jell-O cook and serve kind and serve it warm with homemade whipping cream on
7. Ok...this one is gonna sound really stupid to some of you...but I am addicted to the Xbox game Viva Pinata. In the game you start a garden...and the object is to get "pinatas" to visit and become residents. You have to feed them...make sure they are happy, and protect them from enemies. Haha...I know that it sounds a little dumb...but it's really fun. I think Josh regrets introducing the game to me though, becuase now I hog the Xbox and he doesn't get much time to play his games.
8. The person who came up with the idea for Netflix is a genius! There is no better way to "rent" movies or TV series. I love getting our Metflix movies in the's like getting a little gift every couple of days.
9. There isn't a new season out yet...but we LOVE "24". There is nobody cooler than Jack Bauer. It's the most entertaining show I have ever seen!
10. This one is more of a love/hate kind of thing. We get memberships to Apple Athletic Club for cheap through my work. I hate going, but it's helping us get in shape for Cabo...and it's nice that it's like 2 bocks away.
11. So it's not really a winter thing, but I LOVE my Joico Pomade. Anyone with short hair NEEDS this product.
12. I don't know what I would do without my Bare Minerals makeup. I have problem skin and this is the only thing that I have found that I love (I sound like a bare minerals add....I promise, that's not what I was going for).
13. Last but certainly not least is my moisture surge. On top of having problem skin...I have SUPER dry skin and this is a fantastic little extra oomph that my skin needs.

So those are a few of my favorite things lately. What are your favorite things?
