I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things I’ve enjoyed this holiday season.
I’ve been a gold card member of Starbucks since 2009. I love all the perks that come with this card; including the free drinks on a regular basis. My favorite drink continues to be the triple grande nonfat caramel brulee latte. I’ve tried all the others but I keep coming back to this! I’ve thought about trying to make it at home. This recipe caught my eye.
Liz had this milk frother in Scotland and oh my, the BEST creamy foam I’ve ever had. It’s on my Christmas list. Any takers? The best part is that it takes nonfat milk and makes it seem like whipped cream! Add in a few shots of espresso and amazing!
My Sorel boots have been a lifesaver this winter season. I got them from REI at the end of last year thinking maybe I’d wear them a few times. I’ve had them on my feet almost every day these past few weeks. Super warm, super waterproof and just plain fun!
I’m a big fan of wrap sweaters and scarves. Some of my favorites are from Banana Republic. I’ve found that a sweater, boots and scarf can get me by most afternoons when I’m picking up the kids from school. The weather seems to always drop 10 degrees between the time I’ve left the house and walked to school and get them, a 1/2 mile later.
I’ve been slowly working through the 3o day Praise Challenge. It’s more like the 6o day challenge. The author came and spoke at our women’s Bible Study a few weeks ago. Becky Harling is super energetic and vivacious. She’s put all the praise songs on Spotify and Youtube. Here’s the link if you want to listen to some great songs!
Christmas candles. I love all things that smell like pumpkin, vanilla or cinnamon. Yankee Candles are a favorite and I was thrilled to get my yearly $15 off, $30.
Chocolate comes second to coffee for me. My absolute favorite is Reese Pieces. I may or may not have taken all the pieces out of my kids Halloween candy supply.
Christmas lights make me happy. My home is filled with warm lights. I may just keep them up throughout the entire winter. It makes our home feel so warm!
Pinterest. Here’s my winter page. I love all the ideas of crafts, food to make, memories to create and gifts.
