I finally have a few moments to breathe– both of my daughters’ birthdays have come and gone (and the enormous, 50+ people- in- my- home- parties that accompanied them this year!) and I am up to date on editing.

SO……what to do?  Well, I started looking at Christmas stuff today!  I absolutely LOVE the holidays and everything that comes with them- the decorations, the lights, the family time, the FOOD (oh yes…I may be a small person but I can PUT SOME FOOD AWAY at a holiday dinner!).  I love watching the holiday events through my girls’ eyes and seeing things their way.  I love Elf on the Shelf. I love pumpkin everything. I love the sights and smells and feel and emotion.

I love the holidays…I think you’ve got that. 😉

I started working on my Christmas wish list today, and while I’m not ready to share it yet, I thought I WOULD share a list of things that I’m loving right now.  Maybe they might be on your list, too? 🙂

Right now, I’m loving:

OPI nail polish in Bubble Bath- the perfect color! One coat is nice and demure, just enough to add some glam to your nails. Two coats and it looks like you’ve been to the salon (even if you’re like me, and you HAVEN’T been to the salon for your nails in….oh, I think 11 years, when my grandma paid for a manicure for me?!)

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.  ‘Nuff said.

Or, if you are like me, and Starbucks is a bajllion miles from your house… International Delight creamer in Pumpkin Pie Spice.  Almost as good. 🙂

Caress Evenly Gorgeous body wash with burnt brown sugar and karite butter.  Seriously, I’m not usually a food-smell kind of girl….but I found this this summer and I. Am. In. Love.

Hershey’s Kisses in Peppermint and White Chocolate.  Technically they’re for Christmas….this bag I bought this weekend is gonna be lucky to see this weekend, much less 2 months from now!

Potato soup in the crock pot. Warm, delicious, and smells great in my kitchen.  Perfect for the nights we have dance or other obligations and want to walk in a find dinner ready.

Tres Semme Heat Tamer Spray.  Every day I wash, dry, and flat iron my crazy, unruly hair into submission.  This stuff helps keep it (somewhat) healthy!

The 2011 Toyota Camry XLE.  We bought it to semi-retire my GMC Yukon (12mpg…omg.)  The Camry (or my “little car” as my daughter calls it) gets 30mpg in the city and cruises just perfectly. I love it, and that’s saying something since I am really an SUV kind of person.  Nothing better than being able to drive all over town and NOT have to get gas 2-3x per week.  $600/month in gas gets old REALLY quick!

Adobe Lightroom3.  Amazing editing program that has really helped cut down on my Photoshop time.

 

OK….I’m pretty well out of things to love now (you know, besides my girls and husband and our families).  Thanks for checking in on CBP and I’ll be back blogging again soon!
