My Favorite Things...

Since Oprah gets to do a show about her "Favorite Things", I decided I could blog about a mom, I've found several items that were created to make my life's what I've found:

Senseo Coffee Maker:

This little beauty makes a WONDERFUL cup of coffee in about 90 seconds. Let's be honest...what new mom doesn't need a nice caffeine jolt once in a while?!? And it's actually really good coffee!

Baby Einstein:

I know that there's been some controversy as of late as to whether or not this is really "good" for the child, but for the mother this collection of videos provides 30 minutes of entertainment for your baby so you can get a shower, make some lunch, switch and fold the laundry, etc. Wonderful invention, people...just wonderful.

Diaper Genie II:

Now that Hailey has started eating solids, I truly have grown to appreciate the effectiveness of the Diaper Genie II. It's easy to use, and provides a barrier against the "scent of a baby", if you will...AND I've got Todd trained to empty it every few days!! What could be better??

The beauty of online shopping, of course, is that you can do it in minutes from the comfort of your own couch! AND if you check the clearance section, you can seriously get cute stuff for 2 or 3 bucks!?! I think I check for new deals almost every day!! (And my daughter's closet can attest to that.)
Well, that's all I've got for now...and sadly, no...I will not be giving you all of these items to take home. I'm not Oprah.
Feel free, however, to add to this list as you will. I know I'd love to know, what are your favorite things?! :)

I love this are a few of my favorites!

1. Steve & Barry's - it's a store at the SuperMall (holla) that carries Sarah Jessica Parker's clothing line and now Amanda Bynes'. Cute clothes for super cheap!

2. Crock Pot - how cool is it that you can cut up a bunch of stuff and throw it into a container then return 5 hours later to something delicious?!?!

3. Zac Efron - I know I'm 27 and that makes me a little strange. However, it's only because of my next favorite...HAIRSPRAY! The movie was so sweet and I loved every minute of it. It far surpassed my expectations (I didn't really have any though).

4. DVR - I'm fairly certain it's the greatest invention ever! ;)

5. Colbie Caillat - her album is incredible! She's a perfect fit for summertime.

6. Long Shorts - since the weather hasn't been the most perfect around here I haven't been able to wear them much, but I love my plaid shorts that hit just above the knees. They're so much more comfortable than a pair of booty-huggers.

That's my long list for now. I am certain there are more, but it's not all too exciting to simply read my long-winded response. Perhaps a few pictures would be helpful. Maybe I need a blog of my own...

Shawna - I'm pretty sure the Sanseo idea came from you!! :)

Anne - I must second the DVR!! The BEST invention ever...not only do you not have to remember your shows, but you can fast forward through the commercials?!? Perfect.

Everyone else - keep 'em coming! I want to know your favorite things... :)
