Favorite Things & A Winter Wonderland

It's a link up day today!
You know I love a good link up :)


First up, these lovelies ~ Andrea & Erika for


Today I bring you a couple of my winter favorites :)


I love Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate!
A box of 10 packets is under $3!!!!
Add a swirl of whipped cream and you have the perfect cold weather treat!


I love fresh popped popcorn, but in the winter months it is my go-to snack! You can pick up a container of kernels and the oil/butter topping for under $5 each!






What are some of your favorite items under $10?



The next link up for today is with the wonderful Lisa and Kristen for
Showered With Design

The topic today is...

What does your "Winter Wonderland" look like?

In the winter months, you will find Ohio looking a lot like this...
 and this...
Slick roads covered with snow and ice :(

Then there are the beautiful days like this...
The state bird just hanging out in my trees :)
Love Cardinals!

But by the end of winter we all look something like this...
"Get me outta here!"
We all long to be back outside playing and running around.

And just for fun, check out X's Winter "One"derland birthday party here!

What does your "Winter Wonderland" look like?
Do you get snow where you live?
Have any of you not experienced a white Christmas?

  6. We've been drinking hot chocolate nightly --- I buy Swiss Miss for Steve, and a little more expensive of a brand (Land o Lakes) for myself :)
    I love air-popped popcorn too!

    1. I have tried a few other brands of hot chocolate, but nothing is as good as Swiss Miss to me :) I think it better than Starbucks!!!
