Howdy Everyone!! I hope you’re all staying warm, and for those of you who actually live in a warm area, I hate you.
Kidding! While I do love a warm day, I’m definitly more of a cold weather kinda gal. Give me a snowsuit over a swimsuit any day!
Anyway, I’ve been taking a mosh-posh of photos lately, and I thought I’d share them with you, as there are quite a few things I’m excited about. Only one of them is food related, and that’s actually pretty much the only photo I’m not excited about.
My lunch for tomorrow:
I’ve been feeling very snackish lately, so I decided to take a variety of things to eat while I’m at work. An apple, a few slices of cheese (My lactose intolerant tummy is hating me for that, but you can’t leave cheese in my fridge and expect me to not eat it.) some raw pecans, dried apple snacks, a pumpkin pie alt bar (Not a huge fan, they’re very dry and dense, but I don’t want to waste them.) and some triscuts, honey mustard wheat things (AMAZING) and a handful of dark m&ms.
Most, of not all of my other photos are actually beauty related products, which is odd for me. I normally don’t go head over heals for hair and face stuff.
My Yes to Carrots black friday sale stuff came today!! (UPS sent my package to the wrong place, so it took forever to get here.) I love love love this brand. I’m still waiting on my $2 sale stuff, but I’m excited to try this stuff out. The carrot body butter is amazing, it smells like cabbage patch dolls, if you remember those.
I tried the yes to cucumbers face mask earlier today, and I love it. I can’t stop touching my face it feels so soft!
Dwight has figured out how to get on top of the fridge and cupboards. I knew it was only a matter of time. In this picture he’s watching me make dinner. I don’t know why he looks so interested, he’s made it very clear we have absolute opposite diets, as he is a strict carnivore, while I’m a veggie gal.
These are reusable cotton pads. I saw these on Etsy, and knew I could make them with some leftover flannel I had. (What I used the flannel for originally is coming up in a future post!) Now I no longer have to spend money on cotton balls or cotton pads, and they won’t fill up in landfills! (A lot of cotton balls are actually cut with polyester fibers, making them a little less eco friendly). I just cut two circles and zig-zag stitched them together, right sides out. So easy.
I just throw these in a mesh wash bag and throw them in with my laundry. I use them to apply toner, but you could use them to take of makeup as well. I’m making a few more with terry cloth on one side and see if that will work to take off nail polish.
And lastly, there:
Scandinavian woodland creature cookie cutters!!! I bought these at Ikea after Thanksgiving last year, but never got to use them last Christmas. I don’t like sugar cookies, and have never worked someplace that does Christmas parties or potlucks, and I don’t have a lot of co-workers, so I never make them. My brother is always having office parties at his job, and since he’s not a cook, I told him I’d make some cookies for him to take in. I can’t wait. I’ll definitly post pictures when I get around to making them.
What are you excited about? Besides all the stuff I just showed, I’m just excited for the season in general. Christmas is the best time of the year, the decorations, the snow, spending time with family and friends, as well as giving to others.
