Favorite Things

Part of my goals for the year is to be more regular in posting on the blog. Sometimes I have nothing to write about, but, I do like to have my thoughts, ideas and stuff out there.  So, anyway, I watch a couple of children that have recently watched The Sound of Music. Now, I like musicals and Sound of Music is one of the first musicals I remember watching and I loved it.  But, one of the kiddos was wandering around yesterday singing A Few of my Favorite Things yesterday and it got me thinking about what my favorite things were.  Some were easy to come up with, some were more difficult to choose.  The difficult ones fell into 2 camps, either I love so many I couldn't pick or I couldn't come up with a favorite.  Something to keep in mind, my fav's change often.  Some daily, some seasonally, some when I get a new notion in my head.

Favorite Cookbook
This cookbook is great in the winter, especially when I cannot think of something to make with what is available and fresh! 

Favorite Children's Book
This books makes me laugh, end of story, it is hilarious.

Favorite Book
I have always been fascinated by the Salem Witch Trials and I am loving this style of writing that takes you to the past and correlates it to a present story.

Favorite Color



Favorite Movie
I really couldn't think of one, I have lots I like, but not any I thought I loved:) I tend to like cheesy movies, like RomComs and Spoofs:)


Favorite TV Show

Oh, Glee, I am so happy you start again soon, You make me laugh .

Favorite Food
Avocado, yummy.  I love you with egg whites and salsa and on a sandwich! 

Favorite Magazine
This was hard to pick, I also love Living and Ready Made and Eating Well and Whole Living and .......

Favorite Place to Shop
Target is amazing. I also love thrift stores.  Probably my second fav place to shop are thrift stores, most any.  
Favorite Restaurant
This is a great local pizza place, the food and the atmosphere  are great.  I also love Bittercreek Alehouse in Boise and Ricks Press Room in Meridian

Favorite Child
I typed this cause the kids were looking over my shoulder and I wanted to freak them out a little.  So, I asked  them what they thought the answer was and Hannah points to Anders and Anders says "yeah, I was the most inventive when I was little" (which is the nice way we say that he was a handful). But, I have no favorite. I love Anders for his inventiveness and I love Hannah for her creativity.  Which says both of our children are creative, Hannah with her arty crafty stuff and Anders with his sciency building stuff.

Favorite thing in my kitchen
Really, best thing Pampered Chef has ever made! 
Favorite Hobby
Ha Ha! my husband (who is my favorite husband) suggested this one, but I love them all. Reading is fun and I love it. But, I also love to create. I can create with knitting, scrapping, sewing, decorating and just general crafting so they are all my favorite. Or maybe I should say my favorite is creating! 

Favorite Office Supply
yes, I love to highlight!
Favorite thing that has happened in the last 5 minutes

Hannah said "lets play marriage" to her brother (they are in the dramatic play center) and when she said marriage it sounded just like the priest from Princess Bride. "mawagge." he he.


Well, there you go.  I wonder if Julie Andrews could do my favorites justice:

Highlights on paper and Real Simple in the mail
Target and Cheese knifes in my kitchen
 Flatbread Community Oven to eat, 
these are a few of my favorite things. 

Avocado and Cheesy Musicals
Turquoise and Seasonal Food
Rhyming Dust Bunnies read to small children
These are a few of my favorite things

Anders, Hannah and that favorite Husband
Creating  and Making lots of fun 
Thrift Stores full of deals galore
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad



PS, dear Julie Andrews, sorry I butchered this song so much, but, it was fun (and maybe a new favorite thing)
