Monday's Must Have - My Favorite Things

This is my version of "Oprah's Favorite Things". But I missed doing it before the holidays for gift ideas, so, instead, I'm doing it now. I got some great gifts for Christmas and now that I've had time to use them, and try they out, here are a few of my favorite things...

Vera Bradley - I got my second Vera Bradley purse for Christmas. I got a Morgan handbag in Puccini print. I LOVE IT. I love the colors and the purse can fit so much! Its nice to not carry around a diaper bag.
Twilight - I know most people have probably already read (and seen) this, but I enjoyed reading it over the holidays. It was a quick read, but it was so easy to get caught up in. I can't wait to read the second book.
OXO Salad Spinner - I know this may seem silly, but I have put this on my Christmas list for the past several years. And I finally got it this year. I was so excited. And let me tell you...it works so good!!! It removes excess water from lettuce. It is such a time saver!!! Honestly, I LOVE it.

Brum - I got the Dirt Devil Brum...a cordless electric broom/vacuum. With a toddler who takes after her very messy mom, our floors are a constant mess. This works so well and keeps the floors clean. I was worried it was not going to work as the commercials showed, but I'm happy to report that it does work good. Just sweep, vacuum and dump it out!! Easy-peasy.
Garmin GPS - The thing about me is I get lost, a lot. And my previous GPS was my husband...who I called almost everytime I ventured someplace new. Although I'm sure he loved the "job", he gave a GPS for Christmas. Now Samantha (my GPS voice) and I are best friends.. How did I ever survive without one?!?!
