2012 Holiday wishes

It's been awhile, but it's also time for this year's edition of my holiday droolings. Consider this a more realistic version of "Oprah's Favorite Things"; to bring awareness of both awesome products and also what I would love to have. most are practical. ;)

you are about to see a number jars. glamorous, no. but I would love nothing more than to fill my kitchen cabinets with glass storage, preferably filled with whole grains, coffee, and raw nuts.

this first variety is the most expensive, and while many are not necessary, at least/just one would be nice to have for smoothies/granola/morning cereal, etc. Bodum Yohki Storage (the middle size, 20oz. is currently out of stock)

these next jars I hope to be getting from my husband, so I can always keep my cupboards stocked. (isn't it romantic that my #1 wishlist item is glass food storage?!) Even if nothing is in the jars at all times, I'd love to be able to stay far away from plastic food storage bags.  Sur La Table Le Parfait Canning Jars

or these with the larger mouth... Le Parfait Terrine Canning Jars

This is a little "indulgent" but I would love silk pillowcases.  (at least for me) Sleeping on a silk pillowcase has been reported to reduce the appearance of lines on your face, keep hair in better shape while you sleep and keep your face moisturized, since silk doesn't absorb oil like cotton does.

of course, a Christmas list wouldn't be complete without a few cookbooks...
1. Eat Taste Heal

2. The Sprouted Kitchen
3. Superfood Kitchen
4. Eating for Beauty
Tarte Lip Stain
because who doesn't need a lead free/nontoxic, fabulous lipstain?
Slate Cheese Board
(self-explanatory, right?)
and last but certainly not least, I have been eyeing these Bodum classes for months. perfect for hot or cold serving, I know they would get a lot of use. (AND! I just saw that the Bodum brand is for sale at JCP and Dillards, maybe even more department stores?! good news!)

I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving. I was thankful that my husband, who had been training since the beginning of November, had the last week of training cancelled and was able to fly into Fargo, where I had been celebrating Thanksgiving with my family.  It was a very short, but great, trip home-my first Thanksgiving up North for 5 years.  We did some awesome Black Friday shopping and I ate more food in three days than I had all month.

Hmm, now I also want that Tarte lipstain.

As for glass storage, way cool. We have a whole cupboard of mason jars (I got 12 for $5 on base) filled with dry goods. It's awesome. They are so easy to clean in the dishwasher, and I just write on the lids with dry erase. The ones you found are super fancy and beautiful!! I never thought of using them for veggies and refrigerated things, either.I know Costco has a nice set of glass tupperware if you are interested in that, too.

Also, can't wait for you guys to move here!!
