Love Actually Movie

Love Actually is one of my absolute VERY favorite movies.  I don't own a lot of DVDs, I own only a few and Love Actually is the chosen one.  It's quite perfect for the holidays as well as for a good 4th of July movie.  It's brilliantly funny, witty and has an outstanding cast.

The soundtrack is fabu too and I own that as well.  It's on this time of year on all those Christmas movie channels that play Christmas movies all night long so you can catch it there or you can buy it for as little as $5 at Target too.

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter

Pumpkin Butter is available year round at Trader Joe's but for some reason I associate it with the holidays so that is when I buy it.  This last trip, I purchased 3 jars.  A little bit goes a long way.  I can't even explain how delicious it is but all I can say is that you need to buy some.  It's sweet but not too sweet.  It's perfect on toast, english muffins, and I love mixing it with Ricotta cheese.  I might transfer it to an unmarked jar and give it away as gifts and make people think I slaved over it. ha. 

For less than $4-- you can taste the season.

Glass Magic Dishwasher Booster

okay, I am officially old.  I had a serious MELT DOWN awhile back about spots on the glassware and eating utensils after they came of the dishwasher.  We even had someone come out and make sure our dishwasher was working properly, we had someone come out and price quote us for a water softener. Apparently, the washer works fine and the water softener unit would cost us thousands.... so what does a girl do?!!  

I'll tell you what she does, She buys Glass Magic!!  It is truly MAGICAL, people!  Our stuff came out looking brand new and perfect!  YEAH FOR GLASS MAGIC!  All you do is put 1/2 cup of this stuff on the bottom of your washer and fill with your normal detergent and make sure you have jet dry in the jet dry holder.  

I had to buy it on amazon.  It's about $4 a box, I bought 3 since you have to pay for ship and handle.  I think I am going to buy a case next time. 

The Hotel Cafe Presents Winter Songs CD

Christmas Music is one of my very favorite things about the holiday season.  I recently have found this awesome CD, The Hotel Cafe presents WINTER SONGS.  It is a CD filled with just that-- WINTER SONGS!  Not cheezy "ho ho ho, jolly oh, dooo deee bop" music-- more just wintery sounding cool tunes.

I found it on itunes, I also saw the CD available at Target Boutique.

Only $9.99 and you can listen to some decent holiday sounds without screaming, "five goldennnnnnnnn rings."

Hello Kitty Kitty

HA!!!!!!!!!!!  I was on the search for the perfect Hello Kitty ADULT costume but all I could find where ones for kids (maybe this is a sign) or for actual kittys.  I need this costume.  I must have it.  Unforts, there isn't any other info about this kitty costume.  This will be my next "project"-- to track this kitty costume down and of course find one for myself for next Halloween.  If only my head were smaller, I could just buy the cat costume and wear that.  oh well.
