Holiday Gifts 2012

Well here we are… The holiday season is upon us and that means it’s time to buy gifts. I am pretty lucky because my mother and sister are easy to shop for. My mother is a cookbook and kitchen gadget freak, and my sister loves jewelry, art, movies and a million other easily bought products. SCORE! On the other hand my father is an impossibility  My mother once got him what he asked for and the next week he sold it on Ebay. Smooth, dad, real smooth.

Anyway, here is a list of great gifts for the people in your family for the Holidays and some of my favorite new products.

Pop Tarts

So not only was I offline because of Hurricane Sandy, my computer now has a virus and I need a new one. That’s why I have has such a lack of posts lately. Well, I’ve hijacked my sisters computer for the night so I can stay connected and I figured it was time to talk about these AMAZING new Pop Tart flavors.

I must say, I haven’t eaten a Pop Tart in about 10 years but that doesn’t mean I don’t remember how good they were. And now they have come out with holiday Pop Tarts… Drool! My favorite part is that you can eat them for any meal. They sound and look amazing and I felt like now was the time to share them with the world!

NYC Subway!!! YIKES

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of posts. This is actually my first time on a computer since last Monday. I’ve been out of power for almost 6 days 😦 It sucks but at least that’s the worst of my problems. We didn’t have any damage and everyone in my neighborhood is OK. I live in North Jersey so it wasn’t as bad as the shore.

I hope everyone is staying safe and warm! I hope to have some new recipes soon!

Trader Joe’s

I was just on the lovely blog Delighted Momma and I was inspired to make a post about my two new favorite Trader Joe’s products.

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter

I’ve been putting it on everything lately. It’s really good with peanut butter!

Trader Joe’s Cream Cheese

I love all things pumpkin and I love all things cream cheese so it was natural that I would love this product 🙂

Halloween 2012

I LOVE Halloween and I can’t wait for the festivities that are in store for this year! First off I should tell you my costume… For Halloween 2012, I am going as (drum roll)………………….

Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood)

I have had my eye on this costume for the past few years but I decided this was the year! I got the Merlotte’s shirt and apron from Hot Topic for around $35 (can’t beat that). Luckily, I have blond hair so I will be doing the exact hair style as the picture.

On Saturday, the 27th, I will be doing a Bar Crawl in Hoboken, NJ. It’s called the Night of the Living Bar Crawlers.

It includes day drinking, which is my favorite!

On Halloween itself, I will be giving out (and eating) candy to the kids. I live in a very kid friendly neighborhood so there will be plenty to go around.

What are you guys going as?
