Favorite Kitchen Tool:Le Creuset Buffet Casserole with Glass Lid
I originally bought this right before last Christmas to use to serve a potato hash for our Christmas brunch. But I have consistently used this buffet casserole/pot several times a week throughout the entire year. It is so versatile because it goes from stove top to oven to table. The glass lid is even oven safe to 400 degrees. I love this pot so much that I am adding it to my Christmas list for this year in another color. The hardest part is choosing a color!

Favorite Bath Item:
Taking a bath each evening is something I especially enjoy at this time of year when the days are so chilly. I like to read in the tub and this stainless steel rack holds both my book (or iPad) and soap. I even light a candle that I keep on the tray. Aaaahhh...relaxation. Is it bath time yet?

Favorite Clothing:L.L. Bean Cozy Pullover
I love a comfy sweatshirt and this L.L. Bean sweatshirt is the coziest. It isn't oversized and sloppy like may sweatshirts can be, so I feel put together when I wear it. I especially love the collar and the length. It is long enough to comfortably wear with leggings. Add a pair of Ugg boots with a vest and this is my winter uniform. A big bonus - it's on sale this week! I have the Spruce Green.

Hanging by the fire with my guys is my favorite pastime at this time of year. Add a good cup of coffee and a couple of cookies and I am a happy lady.The warm and cozy mug is a recent find from Target. My husband gave me a package of these socks for Christmas last year and they fast became my go-to socks. Cookie of choice this time of year? Pepperidge Farms Peppermint Milano slices. Have you tried them? Yum!
Favorite Beauty Items:
I read a few glowing recommendations for this very affordable mascara before I bought it a couple of months ago and just had to try it out. It is now my go-to mascara everyday. It makes my lashes thick and defined and comes off easily with makeup remover wipes in the evening.
Curling Iron - Babyliss Pro 1 1/2 inch
I have been using this large curling iron for most of this year and I love the casual waves adds to my long hair. It heats up quickly and has a heat setting so you don't damage your hair.
Favorite Book:My Kitchen Year by Ruth Reichl
I enjoy reading both memoirs and cookbooks and when you add the two together, I am a happy reader. This book follows Ruth Reichl, the former editor of Gourmet magazine, through an uncertain year in her life after losing her job. Her descriptions of food and stories, together with fabulous recipes, have made this a cookbook I reach for over and over.

Favorite Pet Item:Dog Collar - RC Pets 1 1/2 inch All Webbing Collar
Of course I had to include a pet item in my favorite's list! It's probably not surprising that I enjoy changing my dog's collars with the seasons. Dax's current buffalo plaid collar is my favorite collar ever. It is a red plaid with a deer motif and I love that it is wide enough to be seen - even with all of that Golden Retriever fur. Dax is wearing a size Large in Urban Woodsman. So many cute patterns to choose from!
Next stop on the tour is Katie at Little House of Four. I can't wait to see what her favorite things are. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you got an idea or two. I am busy decorating our home for Christmas and am looking forward to sharing that soon!
