"These are a few of my favorite (Christmas) things. . ."

Every year, I love to watch Oprah's "Favorite Things" episode.  Sycamore 320 is doing something similar.  However, what I love about the favorite things on Sycamore 320's blog is that most of the items are affordable, unlike on Oprah's "Favorite Things" episode.

The following are a few of my favorite Christmas things:

1) My new Canon 60D tops my list.  It is so worth having a good camera to capture holiday memories.

2) Each year, I buy a Bed Bath & Beyond Yankee Christmas Cookie Candle.  I have yet to find another candle that I like better.  It is a little expensive for a candle, but I always use one of Bed Bath & Beyond's coupons--I LOVE their coupons! 

3) Last year, I decided that our Christmas decorations needed to be re-organized.  I LOVE Snapware and I LOVE their Christmas ornament organizer.  I bought this at Bed Bath & Beyond for around $15.00 (after the coupon of course!) and I LOVE it.  Look how organized my ornaments look!

4) It is difficult for me to find Christmas music that I actually enjoy.  In my opinion, you can't go wrong with a Mariah Carey Christmas CD.

5) I am not a huge coffee drinker, but around the holidays I LOVE Starbucks' and Dutch Brothers' peppermint lattes.  Every once in awhile, I splurge on a coffee, but I have fallen in love with Coffeemate's Peppermint Mocha creamer.  It allows me to have a peppermint mocha latte without breaking the bank.

Stop by Sycamore 320's blog if you want to see other bloggers' favorite things.

    i love the cookie candle...YUM! and that organizer is RAD!

  2. So glad you like the playlist! I need to check out that candle, it sounds like it smells yummy!

  3. Okay, I definitely need the ornament organizer. I was just thinking about how mine were such a mess in smashed boxes when I pulled them out this year.
    Yes, Mariah Christmas, the best!
