Turkey Burgaloaf

  1. My apple TV. This miraculous device connects my itunes world to my big screen. Between Netflix, HuluPlus and my iTunes movie purchases, I should be thankful it doesn’t count the amount of hours you watch on it.
  2. Pitch Perfect. On an unsuspecting Sunday Fat Amy entered my life and I haven’t been the same since.
  3. This crazy elephant toy my dog can’t get enough of.
  4. This cup. I fell in love so I got one for everyone for Easter, filled them with jellybeans (Starburst flavors, of course), and still get thank you’s for the kind introduction.
  5. A Kammok. Literally rocks. my. world. (I should add it’s not even mine. But it was the best gift I could have gotten a boy, ever.)
  6. iCloud reminders. Work to-do’s. Grocery lists. Event tracking. Simple. Elegant. Always available on my phone or my computer. I couldn’t ask for more.
  7. Yurbuds. You finally put on your running shoes and head out the door. You’re mid stride, feelin the burn but the song your blasting keeps you moving UNLESS your earbud falls out. Yeah. That doesn’t happen with Yurbuds.
  8. Quarterly.co. Not only do I have a subscription to Food52, but when in doubt, best. gift. ever.
  9. This Rally. Someday. You will be able to track me on this adventure. And provide my mother with her fill of worry in place of the grandchildren I have yet to provide her with.
  10. Despicable Me 2. And I haven’t even seen it yet!

I’m, of course, also a big fan of Turkey Burgaloaf. (Coin termed by Michael Tyler, whom you’ll soon hear from with our summer time root beer tastings.)
