Pretty Makes the Job More Fun

Which would you rather see on top of your dryer? This:

Or this:

Thanks to Emily for her Container Therapy post over at Savvy Nest. I got these jars half price at Hobby Lobby yesterday and so it was only $6 total to make my laundry area more lovely :0)

A few of my favorite things...

Purex Crystals
They don't leave the oily or waxy residue that other fabric softeners coat your clothes in, but they make them smell very good!

These things will smell up your whole house! I get the wax from a Scentsy distributor. Then I got:

Walmart Wax Warmer and

Two Lakeside Plug in Warmers
So far my favorite scents are Amber Road, Autumn Stroll, and Sunkissed Citrus.

Xochitl Tortialla Chips
They are just like restaurant chips! SO YUMMY!

Brown Cow Cherry Vanilla Yogurt

This is my all time favorite! Maple is a close second, but I can duplicate that at home with plain yogurt and a little maple syrup.


I know this is a cheezy choice for a list of favorites. But, I just had to have a root canal yesterday and let me tell you, it was not fun. This horrible tasting Listerine is the only mouthwash on the market that "Was shown in a clinical study to reduce 52% more plaque and 21% more gingivitis than brushing and flossing alone". Sounds good to me. Tooth pain is not fun.

What are some of your favorites? I'd love to know!
Next I will by posting about my favorite bits of technology...

I just wanted to mention...

We have a baby on the way! It just occurred to me that I had not shared this fun news here yet. We are very excited and thankful for this little one! He or she should arrive in early June. However, my good friend Marian told me months ago (long before I was pregnant) that she dreamed I was going to have a baby on May 27, 2012 (her son Jacob's birthday). We'll see if she is right :0)
