Just in the last month or so, I’ve come across all these fun things! So here are my “Favorite Things”- Holiday style! Check ’em out! They make great gift ideas!
Fat Boy Candy Cane Ice Cream Bars. Holy Hannah! If you ever try one of these, be warned! “Hazardous to your health!” Peppermint ice cream on a stick drenched in chocolate. Oh baby.
I love getting these jeans for my kids in the winter. Super cozy, they’re lined with fleece or flannel. Right now they’re on sale at Old Navy.
Old Navy Girls $25
Old Navy Boys $15
Diet Pomegranate 7UP-yup – this is my new favorite beverage! You can’t even tell it’s diet! I just hope it’s here year round!
I was Christmas shopping last weekend and happened across these adorable pillows. Maybe I’m behind on the times, but I fell in love with them! They are a cute little “pet” folded up. Unfold it and it’s a pillow! They have blankets too! $19.95
Celine Dion’s These Are The Special Times. This is my absolute very favorite Christmas Cd ever! Just ask my husband. He gets so sick of it, bless his heart. It got 5 stars on Amazon.
Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what the reviewers said:
“One of the best Xmas CD there are. Beautiful. Awesome. Great. I bought it a number of years ago but I wanted to see the DVD that goes with it. Great. Really good.”
“This is one of the best traditional Christmas albums out there. Celine’s voice is perfect for the holiday classics “Oh Holy Night”, “Ave Maria”, & “O Come O Ye Faithful”. She soars to highs that would give anyone chills. She also covers Elvis’ “Blue Christmas” & John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas” with the touch of sadness the songs require. She brings home the Christmas message with the Diane Warren song & title track “These Are Special Times”. It also includes the hit song “I’m You’re Angel” with R. Kelly.”
“I got this album when it first came out and have bought many different Christmas albums since. Whenever I buy a new Christmas album my first thought is “Will it be better then Celine’s?” The answer is always no. Some albums do come close. Josh Groban’s new one Noel was wonderful. Sara Mclachlan’s was breathtaking and Jana’s was beautiful and unique..but it wasn’t the same. Celine’s voice has the power to make you feel these songs like no one else can. Every single song on the album is amazing! There is no fillers here. Plus about half the songs were new and written the year it came out. Very rare when most Christmas albums now have mostly covers and a couple of new ones. I don’t think there will ever be another Christmas album that can top this. Unless Celine decides to record a new Christmas album. :D”
Lemon and Pomegranate Lip Cream by Bath and Body Works. Love the glossy pink tint and the pomegranate defends your lips with it’s powerful antioxidants. A great stocking stuffer!
Anyone who knows me, know I have a fetish with herbal tea. I was at Target the other day and found this yummy holiday one. Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. Taste’s like sugar cookies straight from the oven and no calories! $2.50
