Favorite Things Friday

"I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feeeeel, so baaaaad!" 

I'm not actually feeling bad at all.  Very tired, very glad for a Friday evening leading into a Saturday that I'm very excited for, but not bad at all.  Just have been singing that song all day, and it made me start thinking about what my favorite things are.  And since this is December and I'm in the "what shall I get for (   )" kind of a mood, I thought I'd just get on here and do some favorite things!  Maybe you'll see something that will become your favorite thing!  (Although many of these may not be present-worthy, they really are things I love!)

And the best part of doing favorite things?  The LIST format.  Love that.

1.  The Centennial Elementary Winter Choir Concert CD.

This beautiful cd is my favorite right now for a couple reasons.  One is that it is filled with the voices of a bunch of little people who make me smile every day.  But most importantly is the beautiful artwork on the cover: designed by my beautiful daughter!!  Isn't it lovely?

2.  The Oral Breeze Shower Breeze. 

Okay, stick with me.  I consider flossing to be like interval training:  go in fast spurts, then slow, then recover, the other words, I'm inconsistent and irresponsible.  But get me within a month of a check up and I'm a crazy regular flosser.  Well, that doesn't work so well, and you get away with that less and less as my age goes up and up.  So six months ago my hygienist suggested I try a water flosser.  But this one goes in your shower, so any "over spray" that would thoroughly gross me out goes totally undetected and stays in the shower.  I LOVE this thing!  I LOVE it!  When I went in for my check-up a couple weeks ago, she did a quick check to see if my measurements were better. The answer?  The last time they were this good was 8 years ago!  So I essentially got myself 8 years back!  (Let me believe that.)  The ironic thing is that now I love the heightened level of clean so much that I do this in the morning with my shower AND I floss every night!  WHAT?!  That's the power of the Shower Breeze, my friends.  And it's also fabulous for anyone in any stages of orthodontics. Clean, clean, clean.  It takes a bit to get use to due to the tickly feeling, but it's worth it!

3.  Armani Diamonds Intense

My favorite perfume, and has been for a couple years:  Armani Diamonds Intense.  I love this.  It's a fruity/floral.  Or maybe a floral/fruity.  But I like my smell, and Brad likes my smell.  Good enough for me. 

4.  Mother's Circus Animal Christmas Cookies. 

I don't know. There's just something about these little cookies.  Every now and then they hit a sweet spot that nothing else could hit.  And dress them up for Christmas?  I'm all in.  My son gushed the thanks when he saw that I came home from the store with these.  He went on and on about how they are his absolute favorites.  Why do I bother baking when "Mother" has it all taken care of for me?

5.  Cuddl Duds.

Okay, I'm as serious as I will ever get on this blog.  I LOVE these.  I've lamented on here before how cold I am at work.  c-c-c-c-cold.  Shiver-me-timbers cold.  And these Cuddl Duds?  They have rocked (and warmed) my world.  Today I wore the leggings under my jeans for the first time, and other than they are a size too big, they are fab-u-lous.  Toasty warm, thin layer so you don't look all padded...I truly love these.  They have all sorts of different types, so check them out.  The title above is a link that will take you to their website where they are having 25% off and free shipping right now.  I have the "Climatesmart" and love it.

Well, a child just called ready to be picked up and I have Costco shopping to do.  I have so many more I thought I would get on here, but it will have to wait until next Friday...

"Snow flakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes....Silver white winters that melt into Spring...these are a few of my favorite thingssssss!"
