Jimmi's Favorite Things Sunday!

Hi Everyone!!!!!!
I'm back with some of my favorite things from the past week. Today we have fashion, food, stamping and entertainment!

So let's get started!

Last week I was in love with my Bearpaw knit boots...well this Black Friday I got these Bearpaw boots for myself and I love them! Even my husband loves them, he said they look ADORABLE even though he says I'm "fun size" when I wear flat shoes, lol!
They are just like UGG's without the $130 price tag!
THIS card by Karen is one that jumped off the screen while I was looking through the SCS gallery! I love the colors and her coloring makes me so jealous, ha! All the shapes on the card are to fabulous, too!

This cute and cozy hoodie from Aeropostale had to be mine while Black Friday shopping! It's so sparkly and I love this color and it's a nice slim fit so it still looks a little "put together" but casual, not sloppy, love that!THIS super trendy, fab card by Lisa Arana is just perfect! The colors and the white embossed image work so perfectly together with her fun Nestabilities! Love it!

Okay, Dunkin' Donuts coffee has become the coffee of the Mayo house! I just love it and so does Rachel so it's a keeper! I have had it at Dunkin Donuts but never at home until I got a free sample of it to try and then I went right out and bought some at Target (they had a great price).
Do you want your own FREE sample? Go to THIS page and sign up for it!THIS card by Lori is SO striking and lovely! I love the simple elegance of it and the rounded corners on the right side are just the extra touch that sets it over the top! Fabulous!

Last night Mike and I went to see The Blind Side!
I have been dying to see this movie; 1. I love Sandra Bullock, 2. I LOVE football, 3. I {heart} Tim McGraw! So for me it was a no-brainer! Let me tell you, this movie is BEAUTIFUL, FUNNY, INSPIRING and simply perfect! Go see it NOW! I've totally decided that VA is not Southern enough for me and we are immediately moving to Tennessee, Mississippi or Louisiana or some other proper state, LOL! We'll see what Mike has to say about that, I guess...but I need a more Southern accent ASAP! :)I couldn't post without a Christmas card could I? It is almost that time of the year! Here is a gorgeous Ippity card by Michelle that I love! It is so elegant and light, whimsical and feminine that I just love looking at it!

Here is something I loved and my whole family loved. My Kosher Salt encrusted Prime Rib I made last night for dinner at my mother in law's house! I know it looks kinda weird but scroll down for the recipe and try it, you will not be disappointed and your mouth will be watering just thinking about it for days!Here are my directions...not so official but you get the idea:
Heat oven to 450*F
Place Standing Rib Roast (this one was boneless but bone in is good too) in roasting pan on bed of salt.
Pepper it and cut little holes for some garlic slices and put those in it
Then I put dijon mustard on it, just rubbed it on with my hands...
Then cover it with Kosher Salt, thickly (I use a whole 5lb box for this 6 pound roast)
Then put it in the oven for 30 mins. at 450* then turn the heat down to 350* and roast for 15 mins. per pound or until it reaches 140*F for Med. Rare. The end pieces will be Med. Well and towards the center will be Med. Rare.
Then take it out and make everyone "ooh and ahhh" when you break the salty shell off!!!


I serve it with this sauce:
1 1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 tbsp. Horseradish (not "prepared horseradish) or more if you like it hotter.
1 tbsp. Mayo
a little fresh or dried Dill to taste
Pepper to taste
Mix together and serve with Prime Rib
________________________________________________________________
The other thing that was a FAVORITE of mine this week was Black Friday shopping! I was so excited to introduce it to one of my daughters friends! She saw something I said about it on Facebook and called Rachel right away and said "your mom has some elaborate shopping plan and I want to go with her!", isn't that cute? So she came over Thursday night and spent the night and her and Rachel got up and went with Sherry and I for the best day of the year!
We got great deals at JcPenney, Kohls, Target and an awesome deal on a digi-frame at Wal-Mart. Besides the frame Wal-Mart was kind of a bust but that's ok the EXPERIENCE is really all I am out there for, it's not about the deals, it's about the FUN times with FRIENDS for me!
I hope you had a beautiful, wonderful week and I will see you next Sunday with another edition of Jimmi's Favorite Things!
{Maybe you'll see your card here!}

Here are a few shopping quotes to inspire you!



I like my money right where I can see it: hanging in my closet.
-- Carrie from Sex and the City

{SO TRUE for me!}

Shopping is a woman thing. It's a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase.
-- Erma Bombeck


Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping.
-- Bo Derek
