I bought this on a whim at Stop and Shop last week because it was on sale. Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Soy Protein drink. It is REALLY good. I am trying to use in the place of a 4pm snack (that's the usual time when I am suddenly starving) I highly recommend it. Just be careful b/c it is so good you'll be tempted to drink the whole bottle - I measure out a cup at a time to limit the calories to 160. I haven't tried any of the other flavors yet, but I'll keep you posted if I do :) xo, Brie

- Preheat oven to 220
Line a cookie sheet with the pretzels.
- Unwrap the kisses and put one on top of each pretzel (warning: the unwrapping is a bit of a pain, but the kids liked doing it!)
- pop them in the oven for about 5/6 min
- remove from oven and carefully press the m&m in the top (chocolate should be soft and this should be easy to do)
- cool and eat :) Once cooled they can store in a tupperware container
These could be great for holiday treats by using the seasonal color m&ms! xo, Brie

Loving it!! It's a 4 disc necklace hand stamped with each child's first initial and their birthday is stamped on the flip side.
I like the thickness of the discs... each circle is a half inch so the sizing is perfect for me. Nice macro feature on Kay's camera. I'm stealing this! xo, Brie

This is an egg mcmuffin transformer that was a Happy Meal toy sometime in the 80's - because what is more fun than breakfast foods that transform into robots? Nothing, that's what. I am completely calling BS on its low market value btw, this guy is true treasure!
When Keely and I were younger (I'm guessing high school) a favorite trick when cleaning our rooms was to secretly unload all the random crap that had accumulated in our room and put it somewhere in the other's room. The egg mcmuffin made the rounds several hundred times. I can't for the life of me figure out why we didn't throw him in the trash, but I am sure glad we didn't!! We still hide him today. He was sitting on her chair at high school graduation, snuck inside a piece of banana cream pie, and he even travelled internationally to Ireland. You never know when he will appear but he will always make you happy when you randomly find him in a snow boot that you haven't worn for a few years.
Come to think of it, I have no idea WHERE he is right now. Keely please tell me you have him or he is hiding here in a most awesome spot? I don't want to live in a world without Egg McMuffin transformer! xo, Brie

May have to stop in there tomorrow too just to try them out. I am also going to look around on ebay for some depression glass votives in other colors to disperse throughout the table.
The point of this post is, I need some help!! Do you have any suggestions? I think I want something on the larger side, something a little different, something pretty.... I'd love to hear what you think! xo, Brie

Out of all the School House Rock shorts they used to play on Saturday mornings - this one was my favorite. It really helped me get a handle on interjections. Too bad the making of a bill or the adverbs one didn't stick with me as well because I think that type of information might have served me better. Oh well, the bright side is I do know when to properly use and exclamation point (or a comma when the feeling's not as strong). Shazam! xo, Brie

Wish me luck :) I'm starting by taking down the Christmas decor today (the glitter and pine needles all over my person and house look glorious) and while I am very sad to say farewell to Rudolph the Red Nosed Minivan.... I have a new friend in the house for inspiration and support. I proudly introduce one of my very favorite Christmas gifts (drum roll please)hmmm looks like the piano could use a light dusting! I'll add that to the list
Mr. Davey Crackit the Squirrel Nutcracker! You know you're jealous... I LOVE him! Don't be jealous, you can get one here !! I hope 2010 brings you all the best! xo, Brie
