Things I love Thursday.

1.  I am obsessed with nail polish.  Most people know this already.  But I have been a die hard OPI fan my whole life.  But, thanks to a nudge from a friend (check her out!  I purchased Butter Nailpolish.  Their colors are soooo deep and beautiful!  Friday night I went to Ulta and bought 3 more (buy 2 get 1 free, how could I not?) and I added these beauties to my ever expanding collection of Butter

2.  My new Ninja Cooking System is amazing.  I mean, there are really no other words to describe it.  It cuts down cooking time, steam cooks and bakes, and is the greatest slow cooker alive.  Being able to sear meats and then just add everything to the same pot is outstanding.  No more extra pots and pans to clean!  If you have seen it, this is a must watch video.

3.  Our Christmas Tree.  I know that sounds odd to say in October, but we went this past weekend to Tag a Tree.  I know this concept makes no sense to others around the country, but the gist of it is this: Go to a tree farm, walk around with hot chocolate in hand, find the most perfect tree, and tag it!  Some families will even add garland and such to make it easier to spot when they come back to cut it down.  It's fun to walk "through the christmas tree woods" and see trees decorated.  The best part of these farms, is that every tree that is cut down, a new one is planted.  The trees also tend to stay healthier through the season.  Our tree for 2 years in a row has lost zero needles while on display.  We will go back on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (because Friday is reserved for shopping, duh!) and have it cut down and bring that baby home to be decorated! :) As you can see from the photo, I'm pretty excited.

4.  The Chew. If you have yet to watch this show, set your DVRs.  They have cooking, crafts, baking, health tips, and games.  Really, it's just a fun hour of TV!  And Michael Symon is on my "list".  He can cook me bacon any day of the week.  And really who is more fab than Clinton Kelly?  The answer is no one.

5.  I am loving my new phone to death.  I got the HTC One S for T-mobile and couldn't be happier.  You can just do so much with it.  So much stuff, that I don't even know all of it yet!  The best part is that it takes great photos.  My last phone was sucktastic at photos so this makes me sooo happy.

Which farm do you go to? Our tree lost 3/4 of its needles last year. We are definitely not going there again!

I want to try the butter polish. I've heard great things. P.S. your tree is Ginormous!

Mrs. StP-we ended up in Rehoboth at the Pleasant Street Tree Farm. All trees, no matter what size are $45!

Ok, I am officially going to go buy some Butter Nailpolish. Everyone has been talking about it and I just need to try it. Thank you for the re-inspiration!

And I've never seen The Chew and now I'm really excited about this too! I'm a DVR-aholic.
