Coffee-mate Peppermint Mocha Creamer

It's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!  YES!

Coffee-mate Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer is pretty much the only reason I exist.  Okay, that's a bit dramatic.  But it is ONE of the reasons I exist.

I can't wait to wake up tomorrow morning and add some to my coffee!!  

If you are a flavored creamer fan, you mUst (put the U is must) go buy some right now.  If you are smart (like me) you'll buy it in bulk after the season too b/c it stays good for quite some time (about 2-3 months) you can enjoy it well into spring too!

Wake Up and Drink Up!  (There are 2 liquids that make me want to get out of bed, coffee and bloody marys.)

Ranges between $3-$6 depending on the size and what you local grocer with the club card sales and coupons.

Dreamfields Pasta

What is an Italian girl supposed to do when the entire world has nothing to say about pasta except that it will make you fat?  I'll tell you what I say, "I'M NOT FAT, I'M BIG BONED!" But since when I grocery shop, I have little demons in my head telling me that pasta makes me fat, I found DREAMFIELDS PASTA.  It is a low carb pasta (actually, I have no flippin clue how this works b/c it has the same amount of carbs but it's DIGESTABLE carbs- whatever the heck that means.)  It's good, I eat lots of it and I am still big boned.  What now? ay?

The Garlic Twist

The Garlic Twist is one of those kitchen tools that I actually use.  Like for real, I really use this one.  I don't really use the other 2 drawers filled with kitchen stuff, but The Garlic Twist is great.  You simply place the peeled garlic pieces in the container, place the top on it and twist it a few times.  VOILA!  Minced garlic in a matter of seconds.  Then you just throw it in the dish washer and you are good to go.  

She comes in red, white or clear.  I have the red one.  $15.00

Clinton Kelly

Clinton Kelly from TLC's What Not To Wear is FABULOUS!  SO fabulous that he has a new book out called "Freaking Fabulous".  I suggest you thumb thru it, it has some of the best fashion tips ever.  Not only fashion but just tips in life... how to decorate, eat, behave and just "be".  I don't want to gloat or anything here but I did get to meet him in person this past Friday night and he told me my jacket was great.  I started sweating.  I then posed for a photo of him where I look like an amazon next to his body but that's my own personal issue.  I want him to move in with me.  I have 2 extra bedrooms, he can have both of them and I'll cook his dinner every night.  I wonder if he would agree to this?

The Glass Castle

My friend told me about this book, The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls.  It is a really great book.  I had a hard time putting it down and wanted to stay up 'til all hours of the night (even on school nights!) to keep reading.  And for you people that say, "I don't even have time to brush my hair, let alone read a book!" Let me tell you, "Boy, you are missing out and Boy, your hair looks like crap!"  Make the time and start reading, it gets you hooked within the first 5 pages.  If you disagree, I'll argue with you about it.
