A few of my favorite things... May edition

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens...
Alright enough of that.  I've been trying to think of fun post series to share with you guys.  I love seeing what other people's favorite kitchen, home, fashion and beauty favorite products are.  It's so fun finding products that I "must have" - things I didn't even know I was missing out on.  I also would love to hear from all of you (don't be shy).  What are your current favorite things?

Favorite face product: Clean and Clear Persa-gel
This stuff is incredible.  Between finals, insurance claims, and last minute wedding planning, things are getting a little stressful up in here.  And my face is taking the brunt of this stress.  Fortunately, this stuff works like magic.  Just put a little on a trouble area twice a day and poof, trouble spot gone!  

Favorite Season Finale: Bones
Talk about a cliffhanger!  OMG!!!!  Please tell me I'm not the only one obsessed with this show.  I don't think I can wait all summer long to see what's going to happen.  I'm normally not one to look up spoilers ahead of time, but I honestly don't know if I'll be able to help it on this one.  Yikes!

We discovered this coffee right before Christmas at Sam's Club.  It is roasted in Dubuque, IA and the blend of butterscotch, caramel and hazelnut is to die for.  The flavor is not overwhelming at all, just a nice subtle hint of specialness.  Also, it doesn't make my stomach hurt at all, which is rare for me (sorry for the oversharing).  It's best with just some milk stirred in, and a few drops of stevia if I'm feeling a little sweet.

Favorite summer "brew": Leinenkugels "Pink lemonade"
aka Summer Shandy mixed with Berry Weiss

I normally don't like berry weiss by itself, too fruity tutty for me.  But this combo is killer.  It honestly tastes just like pink lemonade.  And it's from good old Wisconsin, so of course I love it even more.

Favorite can't stop thinking about it recipe: Chickpea shawarma
This is seriously one of those meals that I crave all.the.time.  It's so flavorful and tasty, but it doesn't leave me feeling weighed down at all.  I ran out of curry powder making this, need to get my hands on some more asap!!!

Favorite kitchen gadget: my garlic press
I don't think I've introduced you guys to my lovely little garlic press.  I got this Pampered Chef press as a Christmas gift 5 years ago or so.  It's incredible.  I love garlic SOOOOO much but it sucks having to mince it; I can never get it fine enough.  Plus, I'm sure I already have garlic smell (mixed with cake batter) coming out of my pores.  Better to leave it off my hands.  This one also comes with a nifty little tool to get all of the garlic out of the holes too.  Nice!

Favorite fiance: Mr. What's Annie Making

Hands off ladies.  He's mine. We're in the single digits now!!!  That's like less than 10!!!!!!  That means that in less than 10 days I will marry the man of my dreams and be the happiest girl in the world (even when he tries to squash me like a bug).

And there you have it.  Some of my current faves.  Now it's your turn - tell me what you just can't get enough of right now.  There's still some time, maybe I can add it to our registry ;)
