My Favorite Things!

I've got a great list this year of things you can't live without...

I got the Sleep Number flier in the mail the other day and it was filled with fluffy goodness on every page.  Since they were having a sale I decided to take advantage and try these babies out.  Pure HEAVEN!  The Mister love love LOVES fleece and I knew he would love these sheets.  I was a bit worried because I am a sweaty sleeper but they breath really well and we were both comfortable.  It was like sleeping in a giant fluffy cloud.  It was so soft and snuggly.  These are a must have!  They put flannel sheets to shame.  Right now at Sleep Number all bedding is buy one get one 50% off and free shipping or you can use this coupon code.

I found these babies the other day at Target.  I'm obsessing over minty chocolate lately which you can read about HERE.  These are another must have for the season.  There is nothing like a little peppermint magic to get you in the spirit of Christmas.

For a little bit of stocking fun I found THIS at the Container Store.  I have quite a few art-sy fart-sy kids at my house and this is kickin' it up a notch.  If your kids love drawing then they will love 3-D drawing even more.  I saved the 3-D glasses we got at the last movie we went to so they would have some good glasses to wear while they doodle.  At $6.99-- it makes for a great stocking stuffer.  If you need more ideas The Container Store has lots of fun gadgets for everyone on your list.

The Mister has picked out his brother-in-law gift early this year.  He saw this at Tractor Supply (also available at Wal-Greens) and almost split a gut.  The saying on the top says, "Grandpa says, If ya got dry lips, put chicken poop on 'um so you don't lick 'um."  Charming right?  For the jokester in your life, try Chicken Poop Lip Balm.  When the Mister checked out, the lady told him in all seriousness that it was actually really good chap stick.  Good to know, but I doubt this will ever touch anyone's lips just because of the title.

I got my William Sonoma catalog in the mail yesterday and it has so many wonderful things.  This PIE MAKER caught my eye.  Yes, a pie maker!  Doesn't it look so cool?  I can think of about a gazillion things I would make with this.  As my mind wondered-- I started thinking about the potential to use it as a burrito maker.  OK, maybe not burritos but at least chicken pot pie-- right?  Oh the possibilites.  William Sonoma is just rediculously fun.
As for my Christmas list?  Well, I'm wishing for this...                 

NOT THIS...

It would be a dream come true.

Happy Shopping and Merry Christmas.
