Seven New Favorite Things

I gave myself an unusual birthday present this year.
I started a new blog back in August, on my fifty-second birthday. Inspired by Julie Powell of Julie and Julia and Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness Project, I vowed to try something new every day for a year and blog about it. Over the course of the eighty-four days that have passed since then, I have had some wonderful experiences that I undoubtedly wouldn't have had if not for my resolution. I have experimented with new recipes, visited unfamiliar places, even learned a thing or two. Some have become a part of my daily life. Since my budget is tight, most are low-cost or no-cost. Here are a few of my favorites.

1. Godiva Dark Chocolate.

2. Pillsbury Mocha Fudge Brownies.

3. Once Upon A Time.

4. 100 Push-Ups/200 Sit-Ups.

5. Pumpkin Spice K-Cups.

6. PaperBack Swap.

7. Pinterest.

That's a great list, Julee! I'll have to try the Cedar's Roasted Garlic Hummus - that sounds great! And thanks for the reminder about the slow cooker - it's that time of year again! :-)

Cool list Pam. I can't tell you mine, otherwise I wouldn't have anything to talk about tomorrow. *wink*

I am counting the hours, Lindy! 2.5, to be exact... ;-)

Nice list, Pam. I'm new to Pinterest. Still working my way through everything. Lots of pretty stuff. :)

I am going to have to grab some of that Pumpkin Spice coffee. I don't have the K-cups, but I do think I can use some of the stuff you posted on your other blog. :)

Pinterest is addictive, Tami. Beware! ;-)
You will love the Godiva coffee. Much more flavorful than the K-Cups!
