A Few of My Favorite Things...


I thought I'd give a quick shout out to some yummy (and non-edible) products that are starting to show up on the store shelves. First, I was elated (ok-seriously- GIDDY) upon stumbling across this first item. If you've read older posts you know my obsession with all things peppermint (with the exception of peppermint disk candies). This is Haagen-Dazs new Peppermint Bark ice cream. It has subtle peppermint bark pieces mixed into white chocolate ice cream. So incredibly yummy-I'm talking PURE PEPPERMINT BLISS! Hurry though it's a limited edition and it is worth every stinkin' calorie.


I am not a coffee drinker so every year at Christmas I envy those who are able to partake of Starbucks peppermint lattes. Last year I discovered Nestle's Coffee-Mate Peppermint Mocha creamer. I added it to my cocoa and viola-a creamy peppermint cup of joy. Delicioso!! You can try this as well or see what I found this year...





This year I bought one of these...
to use with this...


and most of all- this...

And what do you do while you are enjoying all these holiday treats... stamp your Christmas cards with this: My ultimate FAVORITE stamp set this season. It's called "Christmas Greetings"and it's by Stampin' Up! You may recognize the gorgeous handwriting of Kristina Werner. She used to design for Stampin' Up! and I buy anything that she has designed. Her handwriting is so fun. She unfortunately has moved on to other endeavors and I'm guessing that this was one of the last sets she "designed." Best of all, it's only $10.95. I'm not kidding when I say I use it ALL the time lately. LOVE IT!


Edited to Note: The Back to Basics Cocoa Latte Hot Drink Maker I bought at Bed Bath and Beyond was only $19.99 and I used a $5 off coupon which made it a lot more appealing. It isn't chrome, it's white, but for that price I wasn't too bummed:)
