The Breakfast Hostess Gift

Believe it or not, I do have other obsessions other than Pinterest and Jenny Steffens Hobick's blog is one of them. Every morning, I open up my email to find her newest blog post in my inbox. Lately I've been stashing some of those emails away for later, but I just couldn't wait to share one I received this week - The Breakfast Hostess Gift | Banana Bread and Honey Butter. It looks like the perfect gift and it sounds like it would taste great too!

Here's what the basket includes:

Banana Bread (recipe here)
Butter, softened
Sea Salt
Ground Coffee Beans
Kitchen Towel
parchment paper
Kitchen Twine
kraft coffee bag
small glass jar with lid

Be sure to read her full blog post for all of the details - Breakfast Hostess Gift | Banana Bread and Honey Butter. And yes, you will be making that banana bread and honey butter yourself! Mmm... doesn't honey butter sound like it would be so delicious? I will definitely have to try making it some day... I know the hubby would love it. Oh, and if you still haven't gotten your mother something special for mother's day, this would work!

I Confess... I'm Addicted!

It's only a couple days since Christmas and I must confess, I'm addicted to this one gift my husband received - a Perplexus Epic. At first it seems like a child's game, foolish and pointless. And then, you try it. It's the world greatest puzzle in a ball. It has a tiny silver ball that must make it through the twists, turns and slides of a 125 level maze. There's no other word for it, other than addictive. If you're looking for that perfect gift to get a friend or loved one - look no further.

If I have it right, this is the hardest of three different ones you can buy. I'm telling you, you must go and get yourself one of these, the whole family will love it! I give it five stars and two thumbs up!!! Anyways, I must get back to my challenge, I have over 60 levels to go. Goodnight! :o)

What's in that Stocking?


Today at work I received an email from a coworker that said, okay ladies I'm stuck, what's the top five things you put in your husband's stocking? Quickly I wrote down my list:

1. Gift Card (Timmies, iTunes, his fave store)
2. Lottery Tickets
3. Cologne
4. Magazines
5. Candy

And then I thought about it, this is my list of faves, well with perfume instead - haha. Okay, so just a quick post, we're babysitting the niece tonight... so tell me, what's the top five things you want in your stocking? Hope you had a great Monday out there!

Custom Mason Jar Lids... Great for Christmas Gifts.

Once again I've been caught exploring Pinterest and have found another great craft/gift idea to add to my list - custom mason jar lids. I'm not sure if I'll do this for organizing my craft supplies, pantry items or for great gift containers.

A great idea and free templates from Christine and Nicola over at The Pretty Blog - go and check it out and get other great ideas too.
