A few of my favorite things!

on May 26, 2012

Hello hello!   So, it’s been a really good day!  Is it hot?  Yes.  Humid?   You bet.  But it’s still been a good day. 🙂

I wanted to do a post of some of my favorite things!  I added Instagram to my Iphone and I am completely hooked!  So I have been playing all afternoon.  I even drove around my small little town to take some pictures.


So here goes, some of my favorite things:


My Converse sneakers.  I love these things!  If I could wear them everyday, I would.  They just wouldn’t go with my work attire. 😉



The Cottage!  This is one of two really adorable cafe’s here where I live.  You can get a huge bowl of broccoli and cheese soup for like $2.50!


Brew Heaven.  This place has the best salads in town!  They also serve specialty coffee too!  If you ever drive thru town, you need to stop at this place!   (M-F 8-2)



Freedom.  I love my freedom so much.  In so many different ways really.  Through the blood of Jesus, I am free from spending an eternity without Him.  I have the freedom that I have because of special men and women who sacrifice their lives so that I can enjoy the things that I do.  This is a special weekend and I just want to take the opportunity to say “thank you” to all of you.  My dad served in the military and even served a year in Vietnam.  My grandpa also was at Iwo Jima in WWII.  It’s because of men like them that I am able to walk around and take pictures today.  I love you very much.



Baking.  If you know me, or have spent any time with me, you will know that I LOVE to bake.  Even if I am not going to eat a bite of it, I just love to bake it.  I got this recipe from Courtney at  Sweet Tooth Sweet Life.  This girl puts the best recipes on her blog!  I will say that I didn’t have any Oreo’s that it called for, but they are still to.die.for.  🙂



History.  I am a huge history buff.  That is why I just cannot wait for our trip to South Dakota in two weeks!  These are some of the required reading in the Seminary Extension classes that I took, with the exception of a couple of them.



Dance.  I L.O.V.E. to dance.  I am no professional by any means, but I just love to dance.  The best thing for me is to just turn on the radio and cut loose.  I mean it.  I love it that much.  You should see me in my car!!







Working out.  I can’t tell you how many positive things that have happened to me since incorporating fitness into my life.  Do I feel like doing it every day?  Not always.  Do I ever regret a work out?  Never.




Change.  As much as I hate to admit it, I do like change.  Sometimes it can be painful, but it’s still rewarding in the end.  It may require the ending of friendships, or even moving to another state (or country!).  Change can lead to so many things!  So many emotions!



Question:  What are some of your favorite things?

    I love this list! Converse shoes are great – as are good local cafes, and baking, and working out, and reading (although less history for me!) 🙂
