A Few of My Favorite Things

I'm home sick today from a wicked stomach bug. I haven't been able to keep anything down and I feel super weak from being up all night. Here is a post I had saved for a day just like this. Wish me a speedy recovery!

Just like Fraulein Maria, there are a few things in my life that make me happy. While cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels do sound nice, here are a few of my favorite things that I couldn't live without:

My tea kettle: It is green. It is cheerful. And it gives me steaming water for my tea each morning. What more could a girl ask for?
My Asics running shoes: specifically the GT-2150s. This is my third pair since 2008 and they have never let me down. Best running shoes ever!
Google Reader. How else am I suppose to keep track of the 50 blogs I read, most of whom post 2-3 times a day?! I won't tell you how many hours a day I spend on this thing, but it can easily be classified as obsessive.
Teen Mom. Yes, I know...I'm 25 and still watch MTV. Some girls I love and some I just want to slap, but there is something about this show that keeps me coming back for more. Plus, watching it reminds me that I am not ready for a kid. Is it sad I need MTV for a reality check?
Laura Mercier's Eye Basic concealer; I use the color 'Wheat' because I am pale like that. It goes on thin and non-cakey however completely hides the circles under my eyes and makes my eye-shadow go on smoother and stay on longer. I started wearing Mercier's Eye Basic about a year ago and it was life changing. I try not to leave the house without it on!
Our TV remote: Now, I'm not a techy kind of person but this little guy sure makes my life easier! Josh has a million things linked to this touch-screen remote and it is quite simple to work. Also, we only have one remote for everything and No clutter = A happy wife. 
And now a little Julie Andrews to brighten up your day:

What are some of your favorite things?


  1. I hope you feel better soon! Make some tea in that kettle and zone out to "Teen Mom!"

  2. I need to know some of your most favorite blogs!! I don't use google reader but I might check into it now...

  3. I also love your tea kettle...and watching Teen Mom, even though I feel like I'm supporting their bad choices the whole time I watch it hahah.

    My favorite things: earl grey tea, the color green, north face sandals, frozen sangria, and dancing in heels.

  4. Hope you're feeling better today. I can't believe you don't have fro-yo on the list ;)
