4 Faves – Version 16.0

Posted by lori . 6 Comments


The month of May will be “4 Faves – Friends Version.”  What are your favorite things?  Tell me about them during the month of April and one (or more) of your picks may be chosen as a “favorite” in May.  You can let me know what you like in one of three ways…post a comment, email me (whatremainsnow@gmail.com), or let me know on the What Remains Now Facebook page (either by commenting or writing on my wall.  Tell me what the item is and why you like it.  I can’t wait to hear from you!


No panty lines and a flatter tummy…what’s not to love.

Candlewick Trimmer

If you love candles, a candlewick trimmer will make your life easier.  The design of the trimmer allows you to reach down into the jar or holder and the spoonbill end clips and catches the wick.  Give one a try.


T.I.P.S. is a nail conditioner that you apply to your fingernails to keep them healthy and moisturized.

Ho Hos

By now, you have probably figured out that I have a sweet tooth.  Ho Hos are not just delicious on their own, you can use them as an ingredient in a recipe.  This is one of my favorites, just in time for Easter.

Ho Ho Pudding

Ingredients:  1 box of Ho Hos, 2 packages of instant chocolate pudding mix, 4 cups of milk, 1 large tub of whipped topping.

Directions:  Cut Ho Hos into circles, saving 1 Ho Ho.  Mix pudding and milk according to package directions and chill until thick.  In a large glass bowl, layer Ho Hos, pudding and whipped topping, ending with the whipped topping.  Take the remaining Ho Ho, slice into circles and place on top.  Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.

This is a recipe where the “sum” is greater than its parts.

    Gosh, that pudding looks delicious but mom says it might kill me cuz it’s chocolate and all. Plus, well, I don’t think I really need a flatter tummy and I’m not allowed to play with fire. And my nails are rock hard – you should hear some of the words mom says when she tries to clip them!

    Now mom seems to agree with all four of these favorite things. But maybe next time you could do 4 Faves for Brindle Doggies. If you have any trouble getting started, just let me know.

    Wiggles & Wags,

      Oh, Mayzie…you had me laughing with your response. You are right, these are horrible suggestion for beautiful brindle girls like you! I am updating my post for today because I forgot to mention that in May, all the items in the 4 Faves posts are going to come from my friends. I already have some doggie/pet suggestions, but I could use some more. So feel free to tell me your (or your mom’s) favorite things. Love you, sweet Mayzie!

    Spanx are the devil’s tool! Have you tried putting those things on when you get out of the shower? Okay, they do help a great deal after you get them on, though!

    I don’t have a candle wick trimmer, but I do love having candles in the house. Another of MY favorite things is the Scentsy Warmer that I just got today. No worries about blowing the candle out and the scents are amazing!

    Bunny says she would be more than happy to give you a long list of her favorite things!

      Bring it on, Bunny! I still need some suggestions.

      Your Spanx comment made me thing of that Friends episode…Ross and the tight leather pants.

  • houndstooth4 says:

    Ha ha ha! Oh, that was a classic episode with the talcum powder and everything! I guess Spanx would allow you to eat that Ho Ho Pudding, though!

    Bunny’s favorite things, in no specific order — Voyager’s K9 Apparel, Around the Hounds collars, 2 Hounds Design, Posh Pawz, ice cream, the Dog Park app for the iPod touch, Wolf Packs, and the color pink.
