ELC's Nine Favourite Yeehaws!

When TLC and I started this blog in January of 2011, we decided she would do “Yummies”—products, companies, books, movies—that she loved. And I would do “Yeehaws.” We always had the intention of doing two to three Yummies and/or Yeehaws per month. That didn’t/hasn’t always happen/happened. TLC has been much better at doing her Yummies than I’ve been with my Yeehaws. She kind of holds it over my head occasionally. Sigh.

Then there was the year-ish that we did “Yumhaws.” Those products, companies, books, movies, etc. that we BOTH liked/loved/adored. (TLC finally admitted she hated that mashed-up word I created and we officially ended Yumhaws in October of 2012. I’m not going to lie: I miss ‘em.)

In Honor of our “Month O’ Nines,” I suggested we each do our Nine Favourite Yummy/Yeehaws from the past (specifically the years 2011 and 2012)—those Yummies and Yeehaws that we still buy/use/obsess over/treasure.

Here, then, are mine:

1. I still love the Campus Quilt Company and Three Sisters’ Jewelry! Read these links so you can learn more about them...you'll be glad you did. Pinky swear.

2. I still love to get my Ballard Designs catalogues! I make sure I have enough time to sit on our couch, or in my favourite chair in our bedroom, with a cup of coffee or a Diet Mountain Dew, and look at every single page.

3. I still love and use Garnier’s Skin Renew Dark Spot Concealer! Because I'm still oldish and still getting those attractive brown spots on my face. Yes. they're quite charming.

4. I still love and use Aveeno’s Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer! Because, along with the charming brown spots I get occasionally, I also get red blotches and bumps that need "calming." Ultra calming, of course.

5. I still love and use Revlon’s PhotoReady Makeup! Got a camera? Want a picture? I'm READY.

6. We all still NEED Girard’s Spinach Salad Dressing! Devine. Simply devine.

7. TLC and I still CRAVE Kroger’s Gourmet Mini Cinnamon Rolls! They go way beyond YUMMO. We just satisfied our need to these sinfully wonderful tiny rolls less than two weeks ago. And I can assure you: We want more. Like tomorrow.

8. Our new favourite Target sheets (since they discontinued the Springmaid brand) are Threshold Performance Sheets! Our Sweet Lauren has confirmed she and Her Sweet Hubby are also thrilled with these sheets. For the price? Choices of styles and colors? The fact that they wash and dry superbly? They ROCK. Big time.

9. TLC and I continue to cherish Kashi Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Cookies and Chocolate Almond Cookies! This was actually from a Yumhaw. Take that, TLC. Or, as I now call you: Yumhaw Destroyer.

I would also like to promise that, from October, 2013, forward, TLC and I will seriously attempt to be more dedicated to posting our Yummies and Yeehaws. Alas, we have often dropped the ball. (Especially a couple of months before Little Leighton arrived last year—and for a couple of months after her birth. We apparently lost energy and/or all interest in anything that was not Little Leighton related. We're confident you understand.)

Hope Y’all have a Wonderful Week wherever in the World Y’all are…
