1. My first awesome picks at the DI!
I am part of a cult of people that stalks the DI stores in search of books. That's right, raise your hand if you participate too. We lurk the DI stores all the time in hopes that someone has donated their grandparents books. To them trash, to us TREASURES!! Thursday was a day that I scored HUGE. I was able to obtain the Mortal Mesiah series, hard cover, by Bruce R McConkie. I was also able to get Joseph Fielding Smith by Francis Gibbons and then Stand Ye in Holy Places by Harold B Lee. SAWEET!!!
In the Stand Ye In Holy Places book, the inside cover was dedicated to a couple and then signed by Sister Harld B Lee. I was so tickled when I saw that and it wasn't even in the collectors case. Books bring me my greatest joy and I was clicking my heels on the way out of the store.
2. Natalie's Chocolate Pretzels
I lost all sanity when my good friend Natalie (who I have nicknamed "The Devil") gave me a bag of evilness. Pretzels with Hershey Kisses and M&M's on them. She had warned me that they were addicting, but I did not know that I was going to lose all and complete control of my hands to not grab another one. The biggest problem with these little temptations is how easy they are to make. Please check out the recipe here: Evil Christmas Treat
3. The Book of Mormon
In 2004, The Book of Mormon was reprinted in a different style and more to be a table top style looking book. I have always wanted this version because it is pretty and those that know me really well, know that I have a collection of Book of Mormons from family, one's that I have found, etc. My good friend Katie gave me this Book of Mormon for Christmas. I was so blown away by such a kind gesture. This gift is up there in the top things I have ever been given for Christmas. Thank you Katie, I love it more than you will ever know.
4. Nolan's Famous English Toffee (Notice how it is an empty tin foil! He he!)
Saturday I had the opportunity to go and hang out with one of my most beloved friends, Christy. She shared with me how to make her English Toffee and I about died how easy and delicious it was. I will forever treasure the memory of hanging with her and making toffee while we laughed, giggled, shared recipes and talked. Thank you Christy, I love ya!
