things i love thursday...

Got a few things on my list this week...

I've been using this scrub for years now - love it.  I'm a sucker for almost any almond scented product...


Got a new popcorn popper last week and it makes that old time popcorn, we're both lovin' this one...


and the thing I'm loving most of all is my new birthday present from Andrew Henry...


I don't know how to use it yet but AH is reading the very thick instruction manual and he's going to teach me because that's the second best part of the birthday present!  Have I mentioned how big of a crush I have on my husband?

Things I'm not loving lately  - how our painting is coming along, how the fish handles came out and the fact that it's still in the high 90's here in Phoenix but this is things I DO love Thursday so we won't discuss such depressing things here. 

Where is autumn???

Cuisinart makes the best products! If you like Almond scents you would love Almond Cookie perfume by Carol's Daughter, (Sephora), it's great! xo

Maria said...

Hurray! You found the popcorn maker! Where??

Almond scent - good to know - gonna write that down!

LOVE the camera! Can not WAIT to see what wonderful images you produce with that - I can NOT even imagine them being better!

Curious about the fish handles -

Autumn - well dear, it is here with me - I'll send SOME of it right over :-D

Was concerned about that bomb scare over there yesterday -
Gonna follow your lead and stay with the happy thoughts!

I make popcorn in a saucepan with a glass cover. Talk about old school!!

I recently got a Nikon D90 with a huge book too from my husband! he's not teaching me though, i have to do it, haha- lucky girl :)

kroney said...

wonderful birthday present!
I'm with Maria, you've done a great job with your 'point and shoot'.
We don't have our usual Autumn temps yet but enjoying the warmer days here.
I do like almond scented products but thoughts of edible 'goodies' run through my mind when I get the aroma. :)

I love almond sented things too- although I've always felt they smell nothing like almonds.

Teenage Bride said...

Jude said...

Oh my, I've been looking for a popcorn popper (love old fashion popcorn) - a lovely thing to love indeed! You just made me want to check out the Booth's almond too :) (And goes without saying, I'd love - lurve - that camera!)

D&D said...

i looove almond scented stuff too!

Andrew H. said...

Your pictures were great with your little point an shoot. I can only image how they will improve with your new fancy schmancy camera. I just have to get through about another 100 pages of the user guide... ;-)

Ooooh, I need that popcorn popper! We have been popping corn the old fashioned way lately, I might do better with one of these! XX!

pamela said...

so jealous of that camera!!! very exciting. i got the middle of the road nikkon and it is really closer to the basic. it is a big jump to the nicer ones but worth it!
have you tried lime juice and chili powder on popcorn? yum. a mexican favorite, mine, too!

Stacey said...

I love anything by Cuisinart and my oh my, that Nikon is so cool! XX

Nicole said...

I love the smell of Almond also and my husband and I have been wanting to upgrade my camera and that's one we've looked at. We want pics and to know how you like it :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

These are great things to love any day of the week!
I also love almond scented things. And almond flavored things. Lke bubble tea.

Autumn is alive and well and here in the UK - we have the colours to prove it.

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

Yay for Nikon SLRs!! It's one of the things that makes me life happy.

The other is obviously cheese.

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

I would opt for the popcorn popper. Simply cannot get enough of it. And I covet the camera, but don't think I would ever figure it out. Lucky just to get my point & shoot photos loaded on le blog!

I have such a thing for old time popcorn makers! Love that one! I don't love popcorn all that much but I wish I did so I could pop my own in a great machine! :) And that camera looks amazing! What a great birthday present!

La Dolfina said...

Love you love list!
And where may I ask did you score that popcorn maker? We don't have a microwave so we never get popcorn at home anymore. I need I want I love!!
But most of all I love how in love you are with that Virgo hubby of yours. You are one blessed gal :)
