Latest And Greatest: A Few Of My Favorite Things

Some days there is nothing quite like home and hearth.

When the breeze blows cold, the kids are tired/cranky and baby is teething, I find joy in the simplest pleasures.

Keeping life simple keeps me sane and happy. (I'm easy to please, aren't I?)

What are some of my new loves, you may ask?

Well, let me share just a few......

A quick search while recently at Walmart led me to the limited edition Better Homes and Gardens candle that exudes autumn:

Candied Caramel Pecan

When I can't be in the kitchen, at least my house smells like I have been.

Another Walmart score was a little something for my crusty, cracked spent-too-much-time-barefoot-this-summer feet:

Bare Foot lotion in Peppermint + Plum

With the first few applications I could already notice the difference. Smells good and greatly improved my feet--double hooray!

Another electronic device made it into our household just over a month ago. While I don't generally think myself a tech geek or find the need for the latest and greatest gadgets, when I laid my eyes upon this one I was hooked:

Samsung Galaxy tab

There I was at Sam's Club just checking them out and then I held it and tried using it. A phone call to hubby and we agreed that the price was right. Plus, we made it out wedding anniversary gift and my birthday gift, so we were covered.

Yes, I'm spoiled. And double yes, I love my tab!

When one buys their new electronic gizmo, there are oodles of new possibilities. I'd been familiar with Apple apps on my iPod, but very unfamiliar with Android apps.

At first gander, I really didn't like the Droid apps. A little more time at the Play Store and I discovered a few that I like to tinker on.

My new favorite CATHOLIC app would have to be


Not only is it FREE, it has a plethora of all-things-Catholic on there. To add to the wonderful prayers that are right at your fingertips, there is the entire Catholic Catechism, Bible, Rosary and Liturgy of the Hours.

My favorite part would be the daily readings. If I can't read through them, I can listen to a podcast instead. I also enjoy the meditations that are also podcasts and from excerpts of Pope Benedict's writings.

How awesome is that?!

Well, there you have it. My newest edition of  favorite things in a nutshell.

How about you? What's rockin' your world? Have a favorite Android app you want to share?

Happy Weekend!!


  1. I'm addicted to fall scented candles, I will look for that one next time I'm braving the crazies at the Wally Mart. I like the My Fitness Pal app - it's free and better than Weight Watchers!!

  2. Oh my gosh, Sarah...I got that exact same lotion at Walmart for that exact same reason! It does indeed smell so good! Have a great ,cozy, autumn weekend...

  3. Oh yes, the simple pleasures. I hear you girl. Okay, so I am heading out tomorrow to grocery shop at Walmart and was just thinking I need some better foot cream. I think my problem is aging though LOL! I'm making a note now on the cream. Thanks for the heads up. Thinking of Greta today. Clementine just started scooting around. Not an all fours crawl, but a definite army crawl. I was wondering what Miss Greta is up to since she's been on the move longer. David just laughs and says that Clementine will be 21 and clapping her hands saying, "Wipers!" LOL Have a blessed Sunday, Sarah!


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
