A few of my favorite things...

There are things we all use everyday that we are in love/obsessed with. Some of these things we might even feel like we can't live with out it don't want to live without it. Here are a few of those things for me....

If you have not yet experienced Pinterest, I urge you to! After being introduced to this virtual pinboard by my sister Abby, I was very quickly obsessed! Any one else have a hundred websites bookmarked on their computer and hundreds of pictures saved!? Yup, that was me. Just by clicking a simple button I can easily "pin" it to the board of my choice and go back to that website/tutorial at anytime. Pure genius! I sure would like to meet the person who invented Pinterest!

This coffee machine is literally what gets me out of bed every morning! I turn it on, put a little k-cup inside [my personal fav is Gloria Jean's Hazelnut] and press what size cup I want and then BAM....the most delicious cup of coffee I have ever had is ready in less than 30 seconds. Not only is it super delicious and fast but, there is no mess! There is no coffee filter to clean out. You just take the little k-cup out and toss it in the trash. The ONLY downside I can find is that the k-cups can get a little expensive if you go through them fast. But, in my house I am the only coffee drinker and I only have one cup a day. Plus, I never go to starbucks anymore. Seriously I don't! That's how good this machine is. So, if you do not have one you should really look into it! I bought mine at Bed Bath & Beyond and used the 20% off coupon.

I have always been a candle person. I love when the smell of a candle fills the whole house! Maybe it was because my mom always had candles lit. Candles make it feel more like home to me. But, there is a downside to candles. There has been so many times I have lit my favorite candle and then 30 minutes later needed to leave the house. So, I would have to blow out the candle before the top layer completely liquefied. I HATE that because you totally mess up the candle and how it will burn from there on out. This is why I have fallen in love with Scentsy. They have SO many wonderful scents to choose from. And it lasts a million times longer [yeah, that's right a million longer] than a candle. The wax you use are called "bricks" and they are $20 for a pack. I have half of my brick pack in my warmer right now and have had it in there for months [I am not lying]. I turn my warmer on almost everyday and it still smells great! If I turn my warmer on and then need to leave the house, I just easily turn it back off. Nothing is messed up or ruined! Also, I have gone to bed before and left one on all night and when I woke up it still smelled wonderful and still wasn't super hot to the touch. And..... if that is not enough, I just recently found out that the wax from your old candles can be used in the warmer. I have a slight obsession with the scent "Diva" from the Tyler Candle Company. But, I just found out that when my candle gets too low to burn I can get an exacto knife and get out the wax and put it into my Scentsy warmer. Now really yall.....who doesn't want one of these!?! Take a look at their website. They have so many cute warmers that will match anyone's decor. Also, if you want to order anything let me know I have a friend that sells it.  :)

So, these are a few of my favorite things. I would love to hear what some of yours are!
