Thank you to everyone who participated in yesterday’s Knock-Off Party. Check out the links to the awesome Pottery Barn and Ballard recreations if you haven’t already!
Today, I’m joining the party at 320*Sycamore.
I have to start with something that is more than a favorite; it’s more like an addiction. In fact, one of my very first blog posts was about this product and the title was “My Addiction”.
In that post I said I was going to stop drinking it every day, and I did, for a while. I’m back at it now. (And I’m back to skim milk.) Except that they’ve changed the name to Maxwell House International Cafe French Vanilla Iced Latte. I think the taste changed a little, too, but it’s still good. I must, must have the whipped cream and sprinkles. I’ll skip an afternoon if I’m out of whipped cream.
The next item is also edible. Can you tell I have a sweet tooth? My sister introduced me to Popcorn, Indiana Original Kettle Corn this summer. It’s sooooo good! Sweet, with just a little salty. My Walmart has it for just under $3 for the big bag, which is a really good price, but they’re often out of the original…it’s that good.
If there’s anything I love more than sweet treats, it’s sleep. Recently, Craig began selling The Bed Boss Memory Foam Mattresses in his office. Our mattress was pretty old, and if he was going to recommend his product, he decided he needed to use it. So we have one, and I love it! It doesn’t jiggle like a spring mattress; you can barely feel it when the other person flops around or rolls over. That means better sleep for me.
Melissa mentioned her favorite Christmas music in her list. I love most Christmas music, but my childhood memories, the ones that mean “Christmas” to me, are the Goodyear Great Songs of Christmas series. We had several of the LPs, and I know the songs complete with scratches. The tire company put out this series in the 1960s, and my dad says he remembers his dad going to get the year’s album at the gas station.
They are pretty easy to find at thrift stores, usually for about 50c. I got several last year, and then bought a thrift-store stereo with a turntable, and Craig was able to put them on CD (you’re legally allowed to do that if you own the album). Or you can order them here.
I’m not quite ready for Christmas, though! One more week (I’m a Christmas-starts-after-Thanksgiving gal).
