1. Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino. Whenever I need a pick-me-up and have the extra cash lying around, I splurge on a little love from Starbucks. This puppy ain't cheap but it sure does taste amazing goin' down.
2. Pampered Chef's Large Bar Pan. This is my go-to pan in the kitchen. I seriously couldn't manage without it. From breakfast to lunch to dinner this amazing stone can do it all. It makes the best cookies. You seriously cannot burn anything in this pan. Salmon, bring it on. The results are amazing.
Tabouret 30" Metal Barstools from Overstock.com. I've had my eye on these for our new kitchen (which will be here next month--eek!) I think they're the perfect blend of both industrial and modern with a little retro thrown in. I'm picky with stools. There's a ton of options out there but these are pretty much perfect in my book. They have the little bar across the bottom to prop your feet up on and they just happen to be on sale. $98.99 for two. And free shipping. Hmm...I sense a purchase in my near future.
5. Kyma Seafood Grill. Okay this is my new favorite restaurant. Again, locals it's located on 272 near Green Dragon. The food was so delish. This was my plate. Oh. My. Word. I didn't even eat half of it--so Mitchell enjoyed the rest the next day.
And this is what my friend Karen got. Some sort of shrimp pasta dish.
6. My husband's curly locks. It's hockey season. So that means Mitch grows out his hair. During the warmer months, I buzz it for him. But come winter time, his curls are back in business. I love how they go all crazy around his ears. It makes me smile. And I love his face in this pic. He probably won't share the same love though.
7. This little log cabin across the field from my house. Can you spot it nestled in among the trees? It makes me want to pick up a copy of Little House on the Prairie.
8. Homemade applesauce. I think I could go on forever with my love list but I will end with my most recent experiment in the kitchen--homemade applesauce. We had four of these containers full of applesauce. The whole family was involved. B and Ry were our taste-testers. And they approved. It was a lot of work, but it turned out really yummy.
