Welcome back to Three on Thursday, a weekly list of three things I'm loving at the moment that I think you should do, try, or buy.  If you're interested in past weeks and more recommendations, you can find those here.  If you make your own Three on Thursday list, please share it in the comments so I can check it out.


ONE.


Christkindlmarket If you're in Chicago or plan on visiting before Christmas, definitely check out the Christkindlmarket in the Loop, right outside the Daley Center.  It's a German themed Christmas market, full of food, candy, ornaments, clothes, wooden crafts, beer steins - all things German.  It's a ton of fun, and not only because they have a beer tent and mulled wine.  I love that I get to go past this every time I go to work in the Daley center, because it's so festive.  And by go past, I mean go in and get beer and roasted nuts.


TWO.


Amazon Echo.  File this under things I didn't know I needed until I got one.  John bought it on a whim for me/us for Christmas.  And yes, it is in fact only December 13.  We're both horrible at secrets and surprises, so he pretty much handed it to me the day it arrived.  We've been playing with it ever since, verbally shopping for things, adding things to lists, listening to music and audiobooks, changing the Nest temperature, locking the front door, asking the weather, ordering pizza, and even making it bark at Hawkeye (yes, Jurassic Bark.  Hilarious.)  I want to get the special plugs for the outlets now so I can also use it to start the coffee maker and turn off lights.  You go, Alexa.


THREE.


Williams Sonoma Hot Chocolate.  I got this little sampler pack from a client and it's so, so good.  I'd say the peppermint is my favorite but all of them are delicious.  It was such a fun little surprise, so if you need a last minute gift or something for a secret santa type gift exchange, then I highly recommend this.
