Way Better Than Raindrops on Roses & Whiskers on Kittens

The following are some of my absolute favorite things ... of the moment. Unlike Oprah, I will NOT be giving these away.

KitchenAid Mixer : I LOVE this mixer. I don't have the fancy-schmancy high-powered one, but I'm fine with that because I don't do extensive baking. But I use my mixer at least a few times a month and it makes my life so much easier.

MaxFactor Mascara : This is the BEST mascara I have ever tried. And I've tried quite a few. It doesn't clump, it's easy to remove and it makes my eyelashes incredibly long.

One Fabulous Fit Maidenform Bra : I've tried a lot of bras in the past, everything from Victoria's Secret overpriced bras to Target brand bras. Maidenform One Fabulous Fit is wonderful. It fits well, washes well in the washing machine (because I don't have time to hand wash, nor do I care to). These are the only ones I'll wear now.

Hoover : Does anyone else use their vacuum attachments to clean their counters and kitchen table? I have so many crumbs all over the place from Brandt that I find it so much easier to extend the wand on this vacuum and suck up all the mess instead of trying to wipe everything down, only to have to vacuum the floor anyway. While I'm vacuuming the floor I might as well vacuum the counter, too.

Abuelo's : My favorite salsa - ever. I highly recommend the Reynosa Salad as well. I wish they had one in Tucson, but instead I'm forced to wait until I drive up to Phoenix to see my parents. I guess that's better, though. Since my parents usually buy me lunch when I'm there. Yum.

Body Attack : It will kick you ass. And it's thoroughly addicting. Probably similar to "runner's high" because of the endorphin rush. But it will definitely kick your ass.

Jon & Kate Plus 8 : Aside from Gilmore Girls reruns, this is my favorite show to DVR. I am truly inspired by Jon & Kate and their beautiful children. I don't know how she stays so sane, because I know I don't have the patience for raising sextuplets. She and Jon work well together, even though some say she's a little bitchy. I think she handles everything very well and keeps her composure given the most extreme situations.

That's all for now. I'm sure I will add more when I think of things.

I'm impressed that you use your mixer that much. What the hell do you mix?
