These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

One of the best things about the bloggy world (or as some like to call it, the blogosphere) that I have come to know and love, is the ability to give and receive information. So this is where I'm going to let you in on a little bit of information that you may not have known before: a few of my favorite things.

This post is the first in a series I will do throughout the weeks, months, however long to come, where I will share with you a few of my favorite things. Whether it be recipes, products, books, or restaurants...I am going to let you know a few of life's simple things that make me smile (my husband, family, Jesus, friends, etc. are favorite things that obviously make me smile...but these I'm about to mention are a little less obvious.)

These are a few of my favorite things...

Hot chocolate with french vanilla creamer. I just need to take a moment and tell you how wonderfully delicious this combination is. You have not tasted the amazingness of hot chocolate goodness until you have tried putting french vanilla creamer in your hot chocolate. You will not be disappointed, my friends. Trust me and try it. And if you want some extra yummy hot chocolatey goodness...try putting some whipped cream on top. Heaven in a cup.

I don't know about you, but for me there is nothing like a nice warm and fuzzy blanket to go with my yummy hot chocolate. This blanket is my favorite! We have the Full/Queen burnt red blanket, and in addition to it looking nice folded neatly on top of our white down comforter in our bedroom, it is also great for wrapping around you on the couch to read a good book!

The C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine from Bath and Body Works is amazing. If you like your lips to be a little shiny, to feel nice and smooth, and to taste, smell, and feel minty...then you will love this lip gloss. I sure do! It's definitely a favorite. My preference is the peppermint (it's colorless), but they have it in a lot of different shades and flavors.

Whenever I hear the word free, my ears definitely perk up. So, naturally, when a friend of mine told me that she got some free ring tones for her cellphone, I was definitely interested. If you go to, you will find a smörgåsbord of music for your phone. Just type in your favorite artist, song, or genre, and I'm sure you'll find something you like. For example, I got this and set it for when husby calls. This one is for when my office calls me. And I just had to have this one to set as my alarm clock. I hope you'll have as much fun looking for new ring tones as I did! The only drawback is that they send them to you via text if you go crazy with new tones, then you might rack up the amount of text messages on your phone bill (but if you have unlimited texting, I'd say go for it!)

So, there you have it, a few of my favorite things! And who knows...maybe they will become some of your favorite things if you try them out. :)

Stay tuned for part 2, which will come at some point in time.

Have a great weekend!

You inspire me. I need to come up with my own list of favorite things... or maybe a list of favorite people... and you would definitely be on that list. Of course you would

Love ya!
