Odwalla Mo' Beta

This time of year, I need all the healthy goods I can get. This just happened to be on sale at Kroger so I gave it a try. I'm going back for more at Publix this very night. 170 calories, it makes a great breakfast. It's all about staying hydrated these days, folks. Keep those colds away!

Calling All Ginger Ale Addicts

Hello, again! No, I didn't stop blogging. I just couldn't do it with finals week. I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season so far. Now that I'm free, I'm in the process of whipping up my Christmas menu. One thing we must not forget, a varied drink list. Are you struggling to accommodate the drink list this every holiday season? It always seems an issue when entertaining. We need enough variety to please all yet not so much that we can start a concession stand. An excellent sugar free AND caffeine-free choice is Canada Dry Diet Cranberry Ginger Ale. Available everywhere, this has the taste of the holidays, yet will still allow for a long winter's nap. Serve this as a choice and guests will be singing your praises ever more. Hallelujah!

Caffeine, Get Your Caffeine

Sam's has cases of these precious bottles for sale right this very minute! We used these at Thanksgiving and they were such a hit. Also, great for recycling and a pop of color to your holiday drink selection. What a perfect addition to the Christmas table!

Planters Almonds

Planters has a great Roasted Salted Almond. In my opinion, a great study snack for finals. Yes, I snack, and snack, and snack. I'd rather snack than study, so, most times, I do.

A Fix to a Fashion Disaster

I have three pairs of flannel pajamas that I wear all winter long. I love them so much! Last night, I had the candles lit while doing homework. Bed time approached and it was time to blow out all of the candles, safety first. I took one pillar I had off a wall sconce and the candle split down the side. Perfect. Wax went everywhere, all over my hands, and yes, all over my favorite pair of flannel pajamas. Let's not forget that it sprayed onto my leather chair, all over a wall, and all of my cookbooks on a shelf. Oh. my. goodness.
I've had to get wax off of furniture and books before, as this is not my first candle disaster. But, clothing, no. For a moment, I thought they were ruined, too much oil in the fabric, on and on and on. I googled how to get the wax out of the clothes. I found that you could place two paper towels one on top and one on bottom of the fabric, then iron the wax out of the clothing with a non-steam iron. It seemed like it wouldn't work, but I was desperate. I tried it, and somehow, success! The paper towels absorbed the wax. I immediately put the pajama set in the washer by itself, and magically, all was anew. I hope you never spill wax all over a clothing item, not to mention one of your faves. Yet if you do, problem solved! For he rest of the household items I mentioned, a hair dryer, soft rag, and butter knife work wonders.

American Apparel Groupon

Remember this post on American Apparel V-Necks?

It just so happens they have a great Groupon right now. Its $25 for $50 in apparel. A great time to stock up on basics, especially if those on your list need some under the tree. I haven't bought it, yet, but am seriously considering one for Billy boy's Christmas. Yes, he knows it's that time of year for new t-shirts!
