Yep.  We’re each giving away a bundle of ‘Our Favorite Things’.  Because we love you.  Because it’s the holidays.  Because we’re awesome like that … and because we want you to know how much we appreciate YOU.

Seriously, I’m not going to get all sappy here, but I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had over the past year blogging, and that’s all because of YOU.  People that actually READ my posts.  THANK YOU!

But back to this giveaway …

It’s my favorite giveaway YET.  Why?  Because these are my picks … my favorite things … stuff I secretly (or, I guess not so secretly now, want someone to buy me).

Wanna guess where they came from?

Huge shocker here …

Target.  Yep.  I could buy thousands of ‘favorite’ items from this place, but I today I’m not that generous.  Or that rich.

But here’s how it works … check out my favorite things below and enter to win them using the Rafflecopter widget provided. Then hop around and visit all of my bloggy buddies who are giving away THEIR favorite things as well! So many chances to win awesome stuff!

Now for my favorite stuff:


And here’s another view of the goodies:


So, my favorite things have a theme …

Basically, they’re all a part of my ‘perfect’ weekend morning of the holiday season.

Let me tell you just how it goes …

First, Matt and I would wake up early and have a couple hours to ourselves before the boys woke up. We’d relax and sip some hot chocolate in these adorable sweater mugs (we’d actually probably have coffee, but these Hot Chocolate packets were way cuter and more festive than the coffee packets).


Then, Matt would whip up some breakfast while I browsed for holiday inspiration in this Real Simple Magazine:


Then … Eventually, the boys would arise to the smell of Matt’s delicious breakfast, and we’d all stuff ourselves (with something healthy, of course).

After all that healthy-ness, the boys and I would then bake some Christmas cookies using these fancy COPPER baking tools:


Copper measuring cups!
A Copper Whisk!
And a Copper Cookie Cuter!

How Fun!

We’d bake ’em just perfect using this fun oven mitt from the Oh Joy! Collection:


The cookies would come out golden brown and just a little crispy. We’d eat a dozen or so, and then package up the rest for Grandma … Or the neighbors … Or our preschool teachers … using these fun Chriatmas bags and baker’s twine:


Sound like the perfect holiday morning?

I agree!!!


Ready to win this stuff??? Just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter below!

Best of luck  Seriously … I hope you win, and appreciate you stopping by to enter!

    Would you believe that I’m probably one of the few people that doesn’t go to Target on a regular basis?! It’s probably because there’s not one in my hometown, and it’s an hour drive to the nearest one. :( But anyhow, I guess what I’m saying is that I really don’t have a single favorite thing from there – I kind of go into spazz mode (inside) because I’m so overwhelmed. :)

I like to get all the gifts for birthday parties there too. The toys and games and arts & crafts sections are wonderful for birthday gifts AND they’re easily returned if the child already has the item.
