Then I toss some of this Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce over it. I love BBQ sauce and this is by far my favorite store bought sauce. Toss the BBQ chicken in a roll, boil some corn on the cob and dinner. is. served. DONE.
Another one of my favorite go-to’s for quick dinners is “boil-in-bag” rice. LOVE this stuff. You pull out the bag and plop it in some boiling water. It’s done in 10 minutes. Cut the bag open and let the rice sit for a bit to cool and wa-la! Easy, tasty rice that was no mess to cook. (The “no mess” is my favorite part.)
Better Homes and Gardens Kitchen and Bath magazines. I can’t get enough of them! I am always drawn to the same things in kitchen/bath photographs which makes me feel a lot more confident in the way I am designing our new house.
Cetaphil lotion and daily facial miosturizer/sunscreen. This stuff is THE BEST. I mentioned in my make-up post that I wear sunscreen every single day under my make-up and Cetaphil is my favorite. I have to wear sunscreen daily because my skin is so fair and I live in such a sunny climate. Best secret to looking young – wear your sunscreen. Or so I’m told. :) My dermatologist recommended Cetaphil for daily sunscreen (and lotion) use. A little bit goes a long way so one bottle lasts a long time. It has a little shine to it which I like because I have dry skin. It gives my skin a bit of a glow! I always order it through Amazon (I included the link above) because I can’t ever find the facial moisturizer in stores.
Another favorite product of mine is regular old Pond’s cold cream. Several of you tried my favorite mascara out and loved it (YEA! Makes me so happy!) but wondered how I remove it. Pond’s is the best for removing make-up. I’ve tried several other products for removing make-up but always come back to Pond’s. I use this every night to remove my make-up before I wash my face.
These are my favorite newish pajamas that I have LIVED IN this summer when I’m home. I bought them at the Gap Outlet and the material is so soft and comfy and stretchy. I never want to take them off! Another favorite are my Ugg house shoes. A fun Christmas gift last year. I know. You’re thinking who wears Ugg house shoes in August? Um that would be me. Weather doesn’t change that much around here and my kitchen tile is so hard and cold. I always like house shoes on when I’m home. I’m excited to put less tile and more wood in my new house. But I bet I still wear the house shoes. :)
Close-up of the print on the pajama pants. Grey with coral flowers. Cute, right!? They make me want to join Ellie in her crusade to pass a law declaring that every day be pajama day.
I know I mentioned my favorite cereal Bran Chex in my last favorites post but I have to also say how much I love the containers that hold them. I found these at the Container Store and this one container holds three boxes of Bran Chex! Talk about a space saver.
Really ALL of my pantry containers and baskets are favorites of mine. This is by far my favorite organized space. I love that it looks good but is also so practical and easy to keep organized. The OXO containers have been perfect for keeping food fresh and visible. I doubled my pantry space when I got rid of the boxes and started using these containers. WOOT WOOT! Love them all. (You can see where I bought all of my pantry containers in this post).
We bought these necklaces for the girls on our back to school shopping spree. They are from Justice and my girls begged me to buy them. It wasn’t a hard sale because I love the necklaces too.
