Hi there! Happy Thursday to you! I think this week went by pretty quickly overall. I hope it went by quickly for all of you as well. Today is my last day of work for the week. So technically it’s my Friday today. I am off from work tomorrow for another test for my stomach. This test is the one that should be finally be able to get the root of everything. So I am wishing, hoping and praying that it’s true. It’s called a capsule endoscopy. You prep the day before as if you were going for a colonoscopy. Then the next day, you swallow a large pill that contains a camera. They then attach a pack that you wear around your waist for eight hours. The pack picks up on the waves from the pill and takes images of your small intestine. This test is one that can get the best views of your small intestine which is where I was told a lot of my stomach issues were located. So we will see what happens. I’m glad that Melissa will be going with me. The test is going to be in New Jersey so we will need to hang around that area for eight hours because I have to return the pack containing the images. So we have some things planned. I think we will see a movie, get lunch, browse some stores. It should be nice spending time with her. I just pray that I will feel alright. I think I will.
Enough about my on-going stomach issues. Let’s talk about some of my end of November favorites! How is it the end of November already?! I can’t believe it! I feel like it was just August and I was in the middle of getting married. Time sure does fly by so quickly! It’s like you blink you eye and it’s gone! Anywho, let’s get to some of my favorites. I found three new favorites this past weekend on Black Friday!
This was one of the first candles that I picked up in the store. As soon as I smelled it, I knew I needed it in my home. It smells exactly like a Peppermint Mocha drink! You get hints of chocolate with an underlying tone of peppermint. It’s so soothing and comforting. It’s a perfect holiday scent!
This is another one that as soon as I smelled, I had to pick up. I love candles that smell like baked goods. They are my favorite. This one smells like sugar cookies. I love that smell so much! These 3-wick candles are great! They last a long time and I love that they have the 3 wicks so it looks pretty while it’s lit. I highly recommend the 3-wick candles.
This gingerbread hand soap is the best smelling hand soap I think Bath and Body Works ever made! I swear! It smells so good you almost want to eat it. I wish they made this scent in the body wash. They only make it in the hand soaps and antibacterial hand gels. Seriously, you need to grab a bottle of this before it’s gone! I’m waiting for their Semi-Annual Sale to stock up on more of these! It smells beyond amazing!
Target Market Pantry Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies
Over the weekend, Mike and I were browsing the snack aisle in Target and as soon as I saw these on the shelf, I knew I needed them in our house. I couldn’t even wait to try them until we got home, so I opened them in the car. Wow! That is all I have to say about these! They taste exactly like the pumpkins that you get in the autumn candy corn mix! Those pumpkins are my favorite and eating it in cookie form is even better. I cannot begin to tell you how incredible these cookies are. They taste exactly like pumpkin and the filling is heavenly. I am so glad we bought them! I saw gingerbread cookies too. I think we are going to need to go back and get those!
I didn’t realize that Target started making their own version of Granola Bars. These are the imitation Quaker Chewy Granola Bars. They were half the price at the store and I thought S’mores sounded good. These are really good! They are the perfect size for snacking and have mini marshmallows and chocolate chips in them. They look exactly like the picture. I personally love them! I found a new favorite for sure.
I might have mentioned this cereal in the past but I’m going to mention it again because I like it so much. Not only are the shapes of the cereal so cute, little hearts but the cereal tastes great as well. It is lightly sweetened and tastes like a cereal that you would expect to come from Quaker. I love it. I like the texture and the flavor. They are pretty to look at too. I’m a big fan of Quaker cereals and always have been.
I am putting this one on here for Mike. Mike never liked oatmeal. Whenever I would be eating it he would say it was gross when he tried it. I thought eventually maybe he would learn to like it as much as I do. I am a huge fan of oatmeal and lately I haven’t been eating it as much as I have in the past but I still love it. Well, I came across this oatmeal and thought maybe he would like it and give it a try. What do you know? He LOVES it!!! Yes, I have converted him to becoming an oatmeal fan! He likes the texture and the fact that there are chocolate chips. Now he needs to branch off and try other types of oatmeal but at least we have a start.
So those are some of my November favorites! Do you like any of the same favorites that I do? Have anything you want to suggest for me to try?
