Wait, wait... November is over? Oh my goodness. When I was reviewing my drafts for this week's blog entries I saw that this was ready for me to write and I thought wow.... November is over. It really flew by. Well I have some new favorites for this month and wanted to share them.
Well first on the list is Ina Garten's new television series Cook like a Pro. I have been watching every episode and recording them. I love going back and watching them at night. It's such a treat after a long day at the office.

My second favorite has been the crushed candy cane candle. My goodness it smells so good! It is not as strong as the twisted peppermint that I normally buy. It has been a nice subtle smell in the house.
Third on my list has been my glitter dot ruffle blouse from New York and Company. The color is called berry bliss and it is the perfect mauve color. It looked so nice with my long flowy skirt and kitten heels.
Fourth on my list has been the Nutcracker. I found the 1993 Nutcracker with a young Macaulay Culkin on Netflix! My daughter and I watched it while eating dinner one night. It was lovely!!!
Here is the Youtube video if you wish to watch it.
We also went to see the new Nutcracker and the Four Realms. That was lovely also. It wasn't crazy and it didn't steer to far away from the classic. There were some changes to the story but I was okay with those changes and so was my daughter.
My fifth favorite for this month has been Laura Calder. I mentioned her book a few weeks ago (see here) and I have ordered it! I can't wait to dive into it.
I have really enjoyed her Youtube channel and I have watched some of her videos over and over. Like this one about dieting.
and this video about the power of lists....
Other home favorites have been my giant poinsettias from Costco....

And last but certainly not least my homemade apple cinnamon tea cake from scratch. I made this for Thanksgiving. The recipe is here.

Well I hope that you have enjoyed my list of favorites for November. I have already started my list for December. Really..... December. I can't believe it is almost here. I guess 2019 is coming whether we want it to or not.
