Favorite Things Party Link Up

I'm joining Erika and Andrea today for their Favorite Things Party. I love to know about other people's favorite anything. It tells a lot about a person!

 Each of these items are under $10.

 I always say that I sound just like the teacher on Charlie Brown until I have my first cup of coffee.. It's funny because for years, I made coffee for Dave each day, but never drank it myself. Now I can hardly function in the morning without it. We are blessed to have a Starbucks barista living in our home (our oldest son) who brings us a bag of Starbucks coffee each week. But this is actually my must have..

Da Vinci Sugar Free Vanilla Coffee Syrup. I buy this regularly at Sam's Club.  It's also very good in hot chocolate. I just add a little with my coffee along with sugar free vanilla creamer.

If you make a lot of sweet tea like I do (almost daily), then this, in my opinion, is the best tea ever.

I have a tutorial on making sweet tea at this link:

Here is $3.98 worth of wonderful

One last thing I've discovered lately are these little items - Tide Pods. These were $4.44 at Walmart. I purchased them while we were on vacation at Disney World and liked them a lot.

I'll probably think of a dozen more things that I wish I had thought of earlier, but these are the things that came to mind.

Have a happy weekend!

  1. I need to give that sugar-free vanilla sweetener a try!!! And...I also use the Tide pods and love them!!! Thanks so much for linking today!

  2. I just discovered the Tide Pods as well and think they are so great. I love that you don't have the sticky, slimy drips like you do when you use the cup. Some times it's the small things!! Great list!!

  3. You are soooo lucky having a barista at home! :) There are many drinks at Starbucks that I'd love to know how to make. I do have to have my coffee in the morning and love French Vanilla creamer. You have great list ~ thanks for sharing!
