Favorite Things Friday

Okay kiddies….I’m starting a new feature here on Adventures in Cheeseland called Favorite Things Friday! Original, eh?  I want to share with you my favorite things…and the list is plentiful.  I’m a pretty passionate person…about everything.  I have lots of favorites.  Tons!  But I’m also quite discerning and super opinionated, and I do not dole out “favorite” ratings to just anything.  This is serious stuff.  We’re talking FAVORITES!

So, with that scintillating introduction, shall we get this party started?  I say yes.   Here are two of my favorite things in the world that made the list today because, 1) I smelled how awesome my shirt smells, and 2) I just devoured and immensely enjoyed the other, just as I sat down to write a post.  Pure strategery, people.

ECOS Magnolia and Lily Laundry Detergent

Ecos Magnolia & Lily: The wonder detergent!

As my darling husband can attest, I am completely, 100%, un-apologetically obsessed with this laundry detergent.   I began using ECOS Magnolia and Lily Laundry Detergent a few years ago when I was trying to go more natural with my household products.  At first sniff, you might not be that impressed.  But once you wash your laundry with it…whoa.  The gorgeous scent this environmentally-responsible detergent imparts on my clothing, sheets, and towels is so delicious!  I literally cannot stop smelling my shirt sleeve when I’m wearing a freshly-washed garment.  Don’t even get me started on how I feel about slipping into our bed made with freshly-washed sheets.  Total bananas!

Fannie May Candies Pixies

Fannie May Pixies = pure joy

What up, Chicagoans?!  If you’re a Chicagoan, then you know about Fannie May.  The beloved Chicago chocolate institution has  been making delectable chocolates for more than 85 years, and for good reason.  They’re sensational!  Everyone has their favorite lollie from Fannie May, but mine is most certainly the Pixie, Fannie May’s gourmet version of the Turtle – a chocolate covered caramel and pecan piece of magic.  They are gooey, rich, substantial and amazing.  Enough said.  And, in 6th grade, my first boyfriend, Andy, surprised me by giving me a box of Pixies the day before Christmas break, signed “from your secret admirer”.  How cute is that?!  I’ve loved them ever since.  Good news Madison folk – there’s a Fannie May right here in Madison at the Hilldale Mall.  Get yourself some.

So with that, I wish you a very happy weekend friends!  I’m visiting my family and friends in Chicago for the weekend, mostly under the guise of baby shopping.  I’m not shopping for a baby, but rather, stuff for the baby that I am making.  Let the games begin!
