Frantic Mama's 5 Friday Faves (Round 1)

I'm going to try a new weekly Friday post with five of my favorite things, kind of like Oprah does, only with one millionth of her readership.

Here are 5 of my Favorite Things:

1.  My new pink Keurig brewer.  I didn't think I needed one (we brew a large pot every morning of course), but my generous mom gave me one as a Christmas gift.  Now I especially look forward to choosing my afternoon cup o' joe.  (On a side note: how on earth do non-coffee drinkers SURVIVE?).

2.  FaceTime.  Not an object strictly speaking, but it is something I really enjoy (and/or depend on). My sister and my mom live in different states, and we try to use the FaceTime function on our iPhones several times a week to see each other and our kids (for those of you lost in a sea of smartphones, it's basically a video chat).

3.  Those Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds from Trader Joe's.  Remember when I first wrote about Trader Joe's?  Well, now I love it even more.  It has been the best thing since sliced bread around these parts, and now I NEED my daily chocolate almond fix.

4.  Nars "The Multiple," color stick.  I've written about it before.  I'm obsessed.  It's expensive, but I wear it almost every single day every time I expect to see someone from the outside world, so really it just costs pennies a day, right?

5.  SNL episodes OnDemand.  Again, this not a physical object per se, but there's zero chance I will stay up to watch SNL live and then be expected to survive an endless Sunday with little kids (which often begins by 6 a.m.; yes, it's true, child-free people).  My husband and I have taken to watching episodes that are saved OnDemand, and this season is hilarious.  I'm especially loving the Drunk Uncle character.  Paul Rudd's recent role as the host was a classic as well.

                                                              (Yep.  that's Drunk Uncle alright)

What are a few of your favorite things?
