Hey everyone! Happy Leap Day! If today is your birthday, Happy Birthday! I can't imagine having a birthday that technically falls every four years. Hey, maybe that is the way to beat the aging game. LOL By the way, I got an email from Einstein Brothers Bagels that if today is your birthday, go in and show them your id and you can get a free meal. Pretty cool!
I'd also like to say a special hello to those of you who are visiting my blog that live outside the United States. I was looking at my blog stats and see I've had visitors from Australia, Serbia, and a few other countries. Thanks for stopping by.
Not only is it leap year, but today is Friday. And its time for my second Fabulous Favorite Friday. Where I feature things I love and want to share with you. Because who knows, you may love them too.
To start off with, one of my favorite purchases that I made about a month ago is the Swiffer Sweeper Vac. My husband's aunt has one and said she really liked it. So, I decided to get one and give it a try.
We have a two story house and our downstairs is hardwood floors. With our little guy and the dog, the floors need to be vacuumed alot. I was tired of lugging our upright vac up and down the stairs. This little vacuum has been my favorite thing. It is great on hardwood floors and has pretty good power. It will suck up Cheerios and small pieces of dog food. I keep it plugged up and ready to go in my pantry. So, if you need a light weight vacuum in a small area, I'd recommend it. It would be great for a bathroom too. Here is a link so you can sign up to get coupons. I got a $5 off coupon for mine, along with some other coupons for other Swiffer products. As Martha Stewart would say, "Swiffer Vac. It's a good thing." http://www.swiffer.com/swiffer/en_US/home.do
This Friday, I wanted to share a second thing that is one of my favorite things. A french rolling pin. I love this type of rolling pin because to me it is easier to use. I like the way it is shaped. I feel like it fits in my hands easier. I use mine all the time to roll out the Friendship bread that I posted a recipe for earlier on the blog.
I purchased mine at a specialty kitchen store a number of years ago. But, I did a search on Target's website and they sell them. So, if you are interested in getting one I'd suggest Target. Of course Sur La Table is an awsome store too and if you don't have one in your area, check out their website.
