Some Fun Things

Here we are on the 9th of January and it's only my second post of 2015.  Apparently I don't have much to say.

{Thinking, thinking....}

Want to hear about some of my favorite things from the holidays? 

You do?  Oh, you're too kind.

1.  Best Candy EVER.

Someone from Bill's work gave this to him and I have been feasting on it every day.  Bill doesn't like candy and I hid it from the kids, so it was all mine. (as was the added poundage.)

2. My new Byer's Choice doll.

My wonderful sister gave me another doll to add to my collection.  Isn't she pretty?

 Here's my collection.

I usually only put them out at Christmastime.  I display it with fake snow and lights on the mantle. I forgot to get a picture of that this year. I took the lights and snow down, but I couldn't bring myself to putting the dolls away just yet.

3.This wine.

It's a Cabernet-Merlot mix.  It goes very well with Toblerone and it's cheap! Ahem... I mean it's inexpensive.

4. Minnetonka Moccasins.

Bill got these for me for Christmas.  They are super comfortable.  I've seen them sold at Marshall's for about $15 cheaper than online, so if you're interested you might want to check there first.

5.Tartan silk pajamas from Victoria's Secret.

Only wholesome picture from google for "tartan pajamas Victoria Secret"
Another gift from Bill.  I basically lived in these from December 26th until January 4th.

Finding a good ending for a blog post can be difficult, so I'm taking taking my cue from Spandau Ballet.

"Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
Oh I want this post to be said."

Ah, ah-ah, aaaah, ah ah.....


  1. You are the best! : )
    And that candy!!!!
    My German teacher sold that when was in High School...oh!!! I remember how good it is!!!
    And Madison has those exact same jammies. She lives in them. Steve got me a pair a blue plaid.
    I may or may not be wearing them. At 4:00 in the afternoon!

  2. I need to try the candy...and the wine!

  3. My daughter received one of those chocolate "bars" for her birthday last spring. I've heard of them before, but it had been eons. They are delicious and addictive!

    I think your Byer's Choice dolls should stay up for awhile. They look all ready for cold winter days. Just my humble opinion ;)

    Stay warm up there!

  4. Hi Kathleen! You had a great Christmas! Love your pj's and of course, the wine and chocolate. If you like blends, may I suggest Menage et Trois or Apothic Red? They are both very good and not too expensive. Costco sells both of them.

    I love my pain pills, but one regret I have is I can't have my glass of wine while I take them. Sigh. What a sacrifice!
    Have a good night,

  5. I am so glad you had a wonderful holiday. I like your favorite things and I am pretty sure I offered you a toblerone years ago because we always brought them back from Greece when we traveled there. There was a time when we couldn't even get them here. I got one in my stocking too! I wish we could have visited last week. I guess this blog will have to do for now. xoxo

  6. That doll is so adorable! I want one too. :P
    I hope you have a wonderful week ahead, Kathleen.
