My 5 Favorite Things right now...

In no particular order....

Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe Joe's are ridiculously delicious. Oreo's but with candy cane bits added in. I actually have shipped boxes of these to friends in non-Trader Joe's territory. People have sneered when I hand them a box with a bow, because it lacks a hand made quality. Those sneers quickly change once they've tasted the pepperminty perfection. Don't knock the Joe Joe people.
A shower curtain? Yep, a shower curtain. Actually it's a liner, waterproof, and it's made of fabric. It repels mold for the most part, and when it's dirty, you toss it in the washer with some bleach. For whatever reason, I can't stand the smell of the plastic shower liners. Mr. SevenHands -This is the last tool, you'll ever need. Seriously, worlds best invention. It has 7 different screwdriver heads. Perfect for when you need a screwdriver to change the batteries on a kids toy. I use this at least once a week. Found here at Target
Word Whammer by Leap Frog and also Fridge Phonics. The music and voice will annoy the snot right out of you, however it's BRILLIANT for learning to letters and phonics. If you have a preschooler, it's a genius product!
It's no secret, I love Target. The plates on the left are on clearance right NOW! So run and buy them. The ones on the left are just to annoy Kerry, because I want to point out that I bought them at Target prior to Halloween! However, aren't they adorable. So, for whatever reason, my kids feel compelled to have something in each compartment. Dinner sometimes doesn't have 4 components to it, but I fill the compartments up usually with a main dish, veggie, fruit, and either a dip, or another veggie. We started using these plates almost 2 years ago, and it's changed the way the kids eat.
So share people!!
