10 Things | November 2011

It’s the 10th of the month so it’s time for another 10 things. Since it’s the month of gratitude and Thanksgiving, (and I have been feeling anything but lately) I thought it was time create a list of things that are making me smile right now.

1. I made this the other day. So yummy!

I have discovered the best recipes via Pinterest!

2. Holiday Card Boot Camp started this week. So much inspiration!

Love their classes, I always learn so much! And it inspires me to create really cool stuff.

3. I’ve been trying to do more yoga lately.

This is my favorite yoga workout. I always feel so good when it’s over, so you can’t help but want to do it. This is the time of year when I usually stop working out and just relax, enjoy the holidays. This year? I’m pushing forward with my morning cardio and yoga a few times a week. No gaining 10 pounds over the holidays this year!

4. I’m so glad Philosophy brought Snow Angel back this year.

This is one of my most favorite Philosophy scents ever. I don’t even know how to describe it – it’s a light, fresh scent – not fruity, not exactly floral – but it’s also not at all like the Graces (which do not appeal to me). It’s very a very soothing scent and perfect for a hot shower after a long day at work. The lotion is thick and creamy and equally soothing to dry winter skin.

5. These guys are recording a new album to be released next year.

New music from a favorite band not only makes me smile, it makes me giddy! I’m a fan from way back to our mutual days in Orlando. Good times at the Sapphire Supper Club in the mid-90’s. I see a summer concert or two in my future.

6. Just discovered this new SoBe Life Water:

Probably not for everyone. Coconut is something you either love or you hate. I love it so these sounded intriguing. I really like both of them and the Mango Mandarin. Sometimes I need something with more kick than water, while trying to lay off the soda. These work for me!

7. Season 5 of Chuck finally started!

So sad that this is the final season. I love that Chuck!

8. I’ve been working on a new afghan.

Are you loving the hexagon? I found the pattern on some Hobby Lobby yarn. This time of year I’m either cross-stitching or crocheting while I’m catching up with the DVR or Netflix. Because I can’t be paper crafting all the time, much as I’d like to.

9. I splurged and picked up this awesome stamp for Christmas card making:

It will make excellent backgrounds for Christmas cards this year. Which reminds me, I really need to get working on that this weekend…

10. Only 8 more sleeps until the vampire wedding of the year!

I never wanted to read these books. I vaguely knew what they were about, but vampire teens have never been high on my list of interests. But now I commute two hours every day and listening to books on my iPhone keeps me sane. Twilight was available in the audio download section from my library, so I started listening.  And I got hooked. I’ve been looking forward to this movie for three whole weeks now! But why is part 2 an entire year away????

So, what’s making you smile right now?

I am linking up with Shimelle.com today. Go here to check out more lists of 10 things!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  2. what an awesome list!!!

  3. Ooh, so much to take my fancy in your 10 post, thanks, lovely hexagons esp, and snow angel will have to go on my Christmas list, have been looking for something less heavy and musky than the usual offerings.

  4. Great list Tammy, I am sooo looking forward to Twilight and I must check out the Holiday card making class!

  5. Oh Tammy, now I’m hungry, want to curl up with a cozy afghan and think about trying out that yoga DVD! 🙂

  6. Oh I so can’t wait for that movie!!!!! And yes, I AM lovin’ the hexagons! 🙂

    • So many things in common! 🙂

  9. very nice i wouldlove to see ur completed afgan….. thanks for sharing….

  10. Since I no longer drink sodas I have been drinking more water but I have not tried the SoBe Life Water I may check it out!
    I wish we were closer. Nobody here wants to see the new Twilight movie 🙁 I may just go alone!! The afghan looks beautiful!

    • Well, we are closer now than when I lived in Spokane. 😛 Yes, we could totally make it a fun girls night out…if it weren’t for that distance thing. I’ll probably have to go by myself too, so don’t feel bad. I won’t make it opening weekend but maybe over Thanksgiving weekend. And I love a lot of the 0 calorie SoBe waters. Really helps to drink something flavored when you are craving a soda.

  11. Great list of 10 things, what a variety! Loved the peek at your crocheting.

  12. What a great list of tens. I especially like the afghan – it’s going to be so happy & colorful!

  13. Ohhh I am loving your favourite picks this month 🙂

  14. LOL I can’t believe how sucked into Twilight I became…I read them all while breastfeeding a newborn. They were great reads for that sort of down time. You know what, I should probably make a layout about that…

  18. Who knew you could get hooked on teenage vampires, right?! 🙂 Will be a fun movie to see. That pasta looks amazing! Will definitely be trying it out.

  19. This was a great list! I haven’t done the 10 on the 10th yet, but yours is so fun, I may come to “play” next month! And I’m hunting down that Yoga video next week!! BTW, its been a little while since I stopped by, so I took some time to check out some of your previous posts! I really enjoyed your Use Your Stash and Scrappers Block posts! Just wanted to tell you how good a job you’re doing here…will be back soon! =D

  20. I just discovered your blog…not sure how, but I’m so glad I found it because you have great posts! I’ve read all your posts and I especially like the Use Your Stash series. I’m a scrapbooker/hoarder and really need to use up or let go many of my things. By the way, I belong to the Alabama Scrappers facebook group and a bunch of us are planning a day trip to Archiver’s in Nashville. Have you visited it yet?
