Favorite things

This is a new post I am going to try out. I got the idea from Sheinnin when she recently did this on her blog. I am going to have a positive attitude today and list my top 10 favorite things! In light of this being a fun blog, I'm not going to go into depth about non-material things like love and respect, I'm going to stick with the tangible, because we all know that I appreciate things like love and respect and my family. These are in no particular order, by the way!

1) I love coffee. Whoever invented coffee should get the Nobel Prize!! This is what keeps me going all day. If I don't have my morning cup of Joe, watch out...things can get pretty ugly! I love coffee so much that I have toyed with the idea of opening my own coffee shop. This dream is a little mute now that I live in the coffee capital of the country, but back when I was in my home town with nary a coffee shop in sight, this was a definite goal of mine.

2) Chocolate. What girl woman can go a day week without chocolate?? I sure can't. Enough said.

3) Flip flops are my very best friend during the summer. I own at least 12 pair...and that's not counting the ones I haven't bought for this year! It's all I wear...and that brings me to my next favorite thing....

4) Pedicures! Man oh man my post pregnancy feet need a pedicure. They are uh-gly! Nothing makes me feel prettier than looking down at my toes and seeing my "I'm not really a waitress" red toes. I am so sad they discontinued that color. I will have to find a new favorite this time around. I wonder if anything comes close...

5) Summer!! It really truly is my favorite season and always has been. Barbecues, 4th of July, watermelon, sundresses, flip flops, pony tails, sunscreen, sand, water, fireworks, otter pops, swim suits, tans, boats, the smell of freshly mowed grass and wildflowers, hikes....I could go on and on! What is not to love about summer?!

6) Hair bows and big flowers!! I have discovered a new favorite since having my daughter (and here you thought I was going to manage a post finally without gushing over my gorgeous little offspring! Ha!) and that is giant hair bows and flower clips! I love making them, buying them, taking pictures of them, matching them to her little outfits, & getting compliments on how cute she looks!

7) Pictures, Pictures, Pictures. They are my most favorite thing of all I think. I can't take enough pictures. My newest hobby has been practicing my photography on my daughter-of course! I am nowhere near a professional level, but it is so fun! I drape a little sheet over our couch, put her in a cute outfit and give her some props and just have a blast!

8) Wine. Vino. Whatever you call it, it's great. I don't even drink alcohol anymore, but if you give me a glass of wine...yumm-o.

9) Good food is a staple in our house. I have developed another new hobby in trying out recipes. Willie told me yesterday that some people at work were asking if he has a chef. That made me feel so great. I just love food. My hips will prove it to you, also! I love cooking it, eating it, finding new recipes, comparing notes with others, trying other peoples recipes, it's great.

10) My mommy groups (and What to Expect). There's not much to say about this one except that there is nothing like getting in a room full of women that have all been there. I love getting advice from all the awesome ladies I have met and just the feeling of knowing that I'm not alone in this. I have the resources to learn about solid foods, strange noises, rashes, potty training, breast feeding, and anything else I need to know. I have saved countless phone calls to the doctor, and midnight trips to the ER just because of all of these helpful ladies.

So, there you have it. My favorite things of all times. What are yours?
