A Few of my Favorite Things

I hope everyone had a happy weekend! I am really enjoying this year. It may because it is sans torn ACL, but there are a lot of really great things going on.

I thought I would take the time to recap on some of my favorite little things as of late...

My gift this year for Valentine's Day to Kevin was small, but I ran out and bought a couple of his favorite things as a fun little surprise. I also attached little notes onto the items.

For example:
A bottle of wine with a note that said "sip sip hooray, it is Valentine's day."
A can of cashews with a note that said "I am nuts about you."
Mountain Dew with a note that said "I would dew you."
Some funny Star Wars printable valentines with coupons on them
Chocolate kisses (unwrapped, cause that is a lot of work) with a note that says "kisses, when I am not here."
And a marshmallow heart.

Oh and I cannot believe I haven't discussed here on the blog that I am SO HAPPY that my Denver Broncos won the Super Bowl!! That has truly been one of my favorite things that has happened recently!

I made some really yummy Carrot Cake cupcakes decorated with lots of orange and blue!

For snacking, I obviously prefer Reese's or Peppermint Patty chocolate, but I realize that can't happen all day every day. I have been mixing chocolate chips and almonds together as a snack. Yeah, I know Rome wasn't built in a day, but I am getting to a healthier point. Oh and it is so easy when skiing and need a quick snack on the lift. My next step is to try substituting the chocolate chips for some sugar free chocolate chips that I have heard about. Stay tuned.

I also had a great weekend off work skiing in Lake Tahoe. It was super relaxing. Gotta love being able to get away and living life!

Sometimes it is all about enjoying our little favorite things in life!
What are some of your favorite things as of late?


  1. That's a cute idea with the little things for valentine's day. A snack to munch on that I heard about is mini marshmallows mixed with golden grahams and chocolate chips - just the right sweet that one needs.

  2. Hahaha you are the nerdiest wife. <3 you!


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
