Helping me get through winter...

I was hanging out over at Leigh Ashley's blog earlier today and she inspired me to share with you some of the things that I'm loving right now.  I was sitting here trying to think of what I use the most of and what I'm really enjoying at this moment and I couldn't help but keep the fact that it's wintertime here in the Windy City and tomorrow's high is 10 degrees - yes, 10 degrees!!!  So, keep that in the forefront of your mind when you're checking out a few of my favorite things!

{1} Tim Keller's book: The Reason for God in which he discusses and looks at in depth different ideas and doubts that people have surrounding religion.  It's a great book, although it might make your brain hurt a little bit (maybe I'm showing too much of my ignorance with that statement) :).

{2} White Citrus lotion from Bath and Bodyworks...mmmmmmmmmmmm!!!  I got this lotion unintentionally when I had a coupon that enabled me to get a free signature item of my choice.  If you know me, you might already know that I have somewhat of a lotion collection and I really don't need anymore.  However, I was in BBW purchasing some smell goods for our apartment and I couldn't let this coupon go to waste so I picked a lotion based on the fact that I love the way the room freshener smells like in this scent.  Let me tell you, I've almost used half the bottle already because I love the way it smells - so clean and so fresh!

{3} Can I get a "WOO-WOO" for some menthol action happening on my chapped lips?!  A big shout-out goes to my boys at Blistex for helping keep my lips healthy even though it's so dang cold outside!

{4} Did you forget that it's cold where I live?  How could I survive without the warmth of my North Face?  This is a staple - I wear it daily.  

What about you?  What are some things that you're loving right now???


  1. I am loving EOS lip balm. it is amazing. see picture here:

  2. I like your personality :)
    One time I put blistex on just as a gloss...heehee this isn't funny at all...I wasn't thinking about the smell and to my first time date is screamed "cold sore". He took me home SO fast my head spin! The end.

  3. Hey girl! Awesome post idea! That books def sounds interesting....I should prolly give it a read too. Also...WOO WOO! (for the menthol action, that is).


  4. Brrr, my sister lives in Chicago and I don't know how you guys survive the winter! It's bad enough here in Kansas City. I've been wanting some new lotion from BBW. I'll have to check out that scent!

  5. Love the post! my husband is a preacher and may enjoy the book! New follower!


I love to hear your thoughts - leave me some loving!
