Friday Favorites and the SOB Award

No. Stop. S.O.B. does not stand for what you think it stands for. It is the “Sisterhood of Bloggers” award and I was nominated by the oh so great Tinisha over at Note the Obvious. She’s a new blogging buddy of mine and it has been so great getting to know her!

But more on the SOB Award at the end of this post – and you know you want to read all the way to that end so you can see if I nominated you, right? RIGHT? Yeah I thought so.

Happy Friday Loves!

Here are the favorites I’m loving this week:

BBW Vanila Bean Noel Nourishing Hand Cream. Go get yourself some stat. Use coupons, they always have coupons! I got two full size candles, two hand creams and a full sized body cream for only $23 (which was the price of the candles). Plus there’s a new coupon in the bag, as usual #winning.

Coffee in a Holiday Cup. I think most of you know I’m new to this coffee thing. I still prefer the taste of chai and order that about half the time… but Coffee…. I mean I get it now… and in a holiday cup, I really can’t say no to the caramel mocha-y goodness.

Windshield Scraper Mitt. It started blizzarding here yesterday. Yeah welcome to Idaho. I am just never prepared for winter weather when it decides to show up, especially when it’s been in the 50’s and 60’s and gorgeous and then all the sudden BAM a blizzard this week. Not cool weather. Not cool. The scraper though? Yeah, it’s a win for getting that gunk off the car.

Mine is from LL Bean, but you can grab a similar one like the ones pictured HERE I’m trying to buy a new car (wahoo!!!) and this website has been a Godsend. I don’t think it is 100% accurate, but it sure beats bouncing from dealership website to dealership website. All the cars in my area, all in one place, easily searchable by whatever criteria I have. It’s awesome. SIDENOTE – I am having a huge dilemma deciding between a sedan and an SUV. I currently have an SUV, but I am torn between the comfort and good MPG of a sedan vs. the size and utility of the SUV. HELP!? What are your thoughts?????

Leggings. Ok I’m kind of late to the legging fad because I didn’t think I could pull them off and I didn’t have the appropriate tops to go with (long ones). Now I’m obsessed. I want to just wear leggings and boots all day, every day. With this high-low sweater particularly. Bought it. Love it.
