Hello lovelies! It’s time for another edition of “Things I Love Today!”
Most of these things revolve around two topics: eating and staying warm, because there’s not much else to do when you’re facing frigid temperatures, ice, and snow day in and day out. Needless to say, I’m over it. I want warmth, sunshine, and green trees again.
Without further delay, here’s today’s list!
Our Electric Blanket
I’m taking credit for this one, since I suggested an electric blanket as a Christmas gift when my mother-in-law asked for ideas for her son. Honestly, it’s been a luxury neither of us take for granted, as we try and keep the heat down to save money, yet deal with freezing floors and drafty door cracks. It’s been used every single day since it’s been in our possession. I highly recommend getting one if you’re in colder climates!
My Mug Collection
There have been times I’ve wondered if I have too many mugs, but this winter I’ve proved that’s not possible. Between my husband and I, we’re using an average of one a day between the teas, cider, and cocoa we’re whipping up to help us combat our chilly apartment. I think there’s about 8-10 mugs in my cabinet, one large enough to eat soup out of, and one as tall as a tumbler! Combine it with that electric blanket I just mentioned, and well, you’re in for a cozy night.
Depending on the area in which you live, you may not know the glory that is this Canadian eatery chain that sells delicious breakfast and lunch items. I’m not sure if they’re most famous for their Iced Caps (short for Cappuchino) or Tim Bits (their cute name for doughnut holes), but I’m partial to the bacon, egg, and cheese croissant sandwich. I eat one at least once a week, so does that count as addiction? Either way, I need the protein and calories, and it’s perfect for picking up on my way to work. The bagels are a favorite as well. I love you, Timmy Ho’s!
This is pretty self explanatory. Spend money at Kohl’s stores, get money back! Due to the purchase of a new bed set, I had about $40 to use, and there’s nothing quite like shopping for “free.” I had one specific thing in mind (see the next paragraph!), but didn’t realize it was going to be so inexpensive, so I was able to take my time and ponder what else was needed. After looking and debating for about an hour, I decided to go the cute route and purchase a few adorable clothing items for Hannah, my best friend’s daughter. Seriously, though, I hope Kohl’s never gets rid of this awesome perk!
My New Rice Cooker
This is what I purchased first with the Kohl’s Cash! My rice cooker was my 2nd favorite kitchen appliance (nothing beats my slow cooker), but it had died sometime between the last time I used it and when I unsuccessfully tried to use it for dinner about a week ago. I am the WORST at cooking rice, so this gadget was something I wasn’t going to go without for long. I purchased one — on sale — from Hamilton Beach, and it also has the option to steam food while the rice cooks. I plan on using it for the first time this weekend and can’t wait to test it out.
I hope you enjoyed my list! What are YOU loving right now?
