Good Morning Everyone,
I hope everyone had a great weekend. We did! My daughter's friend invited her to go ice skating. It was a great night out. There were little shops around to buy hot apple cider and food. It was a great couple of hours watching her skate at the Carmel Christkindlmarkt and guess what was in walking distance? The Cakebake Shop!
So my husband wanted to walk over and have dinner there? Nice right? He loves the chicken velvet soup so that worked out for me.
The restaurant now has all of the Christmas decor up and it is just as beautiful and elegant as ever!
So for our dinner choices this time I got the roasted salmon filet with Maille dijon sauce, roasted potatoes, and Haricot vets. For my cake selection, I got the incredibly moist red velvet cake with pink vanilla bean buttercream. It was all delicious!
It was a great evening.
Okay, let's get into my November favorites. I will start with this wonderful new tea that I found at the supermarket.
It is called TeaWell Organic Matcha Green and I love it! As you can see it helps with antioxidant support, immune support, mental vitality and what I need digestion support! It has a wonderful earthy taste to it and tastes wonderful with a teaspoon of honey. And not to give to much t.m.i. it has been getting my juices flowing properly.
And my new tea selection could not be complete without a new teapot.
I found this beauty at Homegoods and they don't let you shop online yet. So if you have one nearby go and check it out. This teapot was only $14.99!
Fourth on my list, and it would not be complete without a favorite scent this month. I am loving the Tis the Season scent from Bath and Body Works. The combination of sweet apple, cinnamon, and cedarwood has been filling my hallways lately. I absolutely adore it!
As some of you may have heard my Christmas trees are up (I put up four in the house), and I can not get enough of them. I love my blue and white ornaments. I promise to post a video on my Youtube channel of the rest of my trees sometime soon. If you have not watched my video of our Barbie Ornament tree you may view it below.
Sixth on my list has been these Thomas English muffins! I don't know what possessed me to get English muffins but I did and I love them! I bought a few into the office and I placed them in the toaster, spread some butter on them, and enjoy them at my desk with my blueberries and hot matcha green tea. That is how I start my morning when I get into the office!
Seventh on my list and this list is getting quite long, are these bow mules that I ordered from Ann Taylor Factory. I talked about these on my blog a few weeks ago. See here if you missed it. They are so comfy and most of my co-workers love them! Don't miss out!
And last but certainly not least has been the Vince Guaraldi- Charlie Brown Christmas Songs! Now I know it may be a little soon for some but my daughter and I love listening to these on our way to school in the morning.
They are so classic, timeless and simple. For some reason, these songs put my soul at ease and bring about some peace which is what this country needs so much.
Well, I hope that you all enjoyed my favorites for the month. I will be prepping this week for Thanksgiving and will be really busy. I hope to film a little of it. We will see.
Enjoy your Monday!
