Orange you glad...

One of my {very} very favorite things about Christmastime is:
orange season.



I am one of those who {loves} to find a large orange in the toe of my stocking.

I try to have orange slices with every meal possible.

I'll even cut some orange rings when I'm feeling {extra} festive.

My hands smell like oranges 24/7 December-February...

We just purchased a large box o' some Cuties @ Costco.
{Love 'em because they are even easier to peel!}

Yum.


{A cutie for my cutie.}

Happy Wednesday!

oranges are so refreshingly tasty. only problem is . . . why did they have to be orange. just think how cute they'd be if they were pink or red. food for thought. chloe {on the other hand} is cute in any color.

I love the clementines the most! My kids love them too cuz of the easy to peel-ness.

I have to say that I can go without the orange in the stocking toe though, don't waste the space... Keep them in the fridge and add some cute socks or something to MY stocking:)!

i ran over the little cutie. except when i got a little closer,i noticed it was a big big orange. whheeewww. what a relief. it wasn't the baby cutie. i felt pretty bad. i took a pic. i will email it to you just so you laugh.

You've tempted my taste buds. Yum!

A Rod Stewart poster, of him w/Leapord tights and a flowing white shirt? Will that work?

Lol!

Thought not.
So give me ideas.

Also, that pic of Chloe... Lovin' it! Cute bangs, cute look, cute bow/thingy. Also, I love the citrus in the winter time as well!

Kim said...

Oranges are one of my favorites and they smell so good. I too would get them in the toe of my stocking. OK can Chloe get any cuter?

Em said...

Oh, Ang! I always got an orange in my stocking growing up. It's a tradition. Nothings better than the smell of orange blossoms and fresh cut oranges.

First of all, I love the look on Chloe's face. Second, we discovered the best fruit dip that tastes really good on oranges. Just melt some white chocolate chips. Oh my gosh I love it! Talk about taking a healthy snack & making it just as unhealthy as my normal snacks!

I totally love oranges, too. The only thing I don't like is when they get sticky if you accidently pinch one while peeling. But way to be heathly and eat one with every meal! If you want to indulge a little, take Shalae's advice. Leave it to our family to turn it into sugary, calorie-filled goodness.

Speak to my soul. I've had three today. Do you think overdose is possible?

Kaytie Brown said...

MAN do I miss AZ yummy citrus. I'm dying about how cute Chloe is!! Can't wait to see her (and you) again soon!!

Coree Adams said...

Yum that sounds delicious!

Laurie M. said...

Yummy! Love the picture- she is so cute!

Staci said...

I could eat an orange for breakfast, lunch & dinner & still want more! I worked in a Citrus Stand for 3 years & I would get excited EVERY year when it was time to open...just because I knew I could walk in & eat an orange...and kind...any time I wanted!

I LOVE Chloe's ribbon in her hair!:)

chris & amber said...

Dang it! I knew I forgot something at Costco today. I didn't want to be late picking up Halleigh from preschool. Those are DELECTABLE. My kids devour them...and so do I. Shalae...do share the recipe of that fruit dip, please. :o) Can I please be as cute as Chloe?

granny said...

Why oh why did I not discover cuties until this year while we were in Oregon. Where have I been? We just finished a box today that we bought about 3 days ago. :)

amanda p. said...

I wish there was a candle for my house that smelled as good as peeling an orange. It always reminds me of the smell at Zuka Juice. Fresh, clean & yummy!

MeL said...

Knock knock.

Who's there?

Orange.

Orange who?

Orange you going to do us a favor and run this card through your card machine?
Rose, that really is a great name.

I like oranges too, and asked Philip if we can plant an orange tree as soon as we own some dirt. He said yes. But then when I asked him if we could then transplant that same orange tree every time we moved, so that we could have a mature tree, he said no. I think the only thing I miss about the old house on Vine is our amazing orange tree. I think that is the highlight of the 15+ years that I lived there.

Kaylea said...

oranges are so yummy. i love the smell of a freshly peeled orange.

I have to say that has to be one of the cutest pictures I have seen. Love the bow and her precious face is just to cute. Oh by the way oranges have to be one of the coolest things god ever created!
