My Favorite Things...

Here are a few of my favorite things right now. I'm not sure why...I just felt like sharing them with you!

1. My Sewing Machine - I'm making a lot of my Christmas gifts this year. Me and the sewing machine are spending a lot of quality time together at the kitchen table!! I'll share what I've been making after people get their gifts...I don't want to spoil any surprises!

2. Point of Grace: A Christmas Story - every Christmas I spend countless hours listening to this CD. It's my all time favorite Christmas CD. Mock me if you will, but I LOVE it!

3. My new boots - I've been wanting real cowboy boots for a while now, but have never been able to justify spending the money on them. On Friday, I was checking our message board at work where people post things they want to sell. Low & behold there was a pair of size 9 Justin cowboy boots. The girl had only worn them twice. I rushed over to her building at tried them on and wrote her a check on the spot. And they were a deal!!! I'm wearing them today, and they are fantastic!

4. My Camelbak water bottle - I've always been a Nalgene girl. For some reason, a couple of weeks ago, I decided I wanted a bottle with a straw. I bought this adorable thing, and I don't think I'll ever go back. It's just the right size. It doesn't spill, even when the straw is open. And I just think it's cute!

5. The Pioneer Woman - This website is great. This woman is a hilarious story teller in the "Confessions" portion of her blog. But, what I'm enjoying most is the "Cooking" section. This weekend I made the Pasta alla Vodka and it was SO good. I've been enjoying the leftovers ever since. In the cooking section, she takes pictures of the whole process and makes it really easy to follow her instructions. If you like that kind of thing, you should try making the Chocolate Sheet Cake, it's fantastic! And I really want to try the Cinnamon Rolls...they look absolutely delicious!

Ooh, I'm going to have to look at the Pioneer Woman site! That's all my blog is about - me cooking, with pictures! Except my pictures are not nearly as good as hers, and I don't have the patience to take step-by-step pictures. Yum!

You already know I adore the boots, so I must also comment on the adorable nature of the water bottle. Adorable AND environmentally friendly! I'm going to carry one around D.C. and think of you. =) Must see you as much as possible before trekking across the country!! Lunch in A-town to start!
