Favorite Things

Happy summer! Well at least it is for me, hopefully yours isn't too far away. I had my brief "bored" moment after school let out and then I got over myself and am ready to move on to enjoying my summer.
I have been seeing several blogs that I follow and they do a "Favorite Things" post or "Favorite Products". I don't know what it is, but I love seeing what other people use in their every day lives. Not sure if anyone else does, so if I am the only one who looks at this post, I will know that this is a curiosity that I share alone...

1.  Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter
Oh my, I love this stuff. It's creamy, buttery, and smells so good. I put it on this morning and I still smell like coconuts 11 hours later! Of course, I have to really take a good sniff inhaling my skin practically, but I can smell it! Buy it, you won't regret it!

2.  Yankee Candle Spring Days
This smells like spring/summer in a candle. I know that was unexpected. The end.

3.  Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas
I never would have done this without my sister's urging, but making your own tortillas is amazing! I get my recipe from here.  You seriously need to invest in a tortilla press, but they aren't that expensive and it helps soo much (as evidenced below)...

4.  New Books
Thanks to some severely old Barnes and Noble gift cards, I was able to purchase two new books for only $9. I'm not sure if I am more excited about how little I paid or the books themselves, but I am pumped to read! Has anyone read these?

5.  Wedding Date
After many issues and trials/tribulations, my wedding date has finally been set, and it ain't changing!! Did you hear me?  It's in Sharpie marker on the calendar... stick a fork in it, one itty-bitty part done!
