These are a few of my favorite things

In honor of my birthday I thought I would list 36 of my favorite things. Not necessarily in any order.

1. Mint Chocolate Chip Mint Chocolate Chip from Baskin Robbins is my all time favorite ice cream.  No one else’s mint chocolate chip compares.

image in Austin is also on my list of best ice cream.

2. A child’s laughter. Not the forced kind, not when they are laughing at the TV, but when they are really, truly laughing (like when being tickled).

3. image Purple. Can’t you tell from my blog’s title? LOL. I love purple, but I have never decorated with it other than a pillow in my old office. I wanted to do my bedroom in purple, but it isn’t considered a soothing, relaxing color and I already have trouble sleeping so I follow feng shui a little bit.

4. image Fudgy Oatmeal Bars, homemade. My Christmas cookie pick every year when my mom says she isn’t going to make all her cookies (she always ends up making more than she says she is going to).

5. image Spitz Sunflower Seeds have less grainy salt so they don’t tear up the inside of your mouth as bad as the others. I never thought I would like the Dill Pickle flavored but they are my favorite. I had them at almost every baseball game.

6. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday (not because it is around my birthday) because when I was younger that was always the big family celebration. I always loved the big table of family gathering together. It doesn’t happen so much around here anymore. =(

7. My late grandmother’s pecan pie, topped with Cool Whip.

8. Snowmen décor (at Christmas time).

9. Decorating the house and tree for Christmas.

10. Las Cruces sunset 

Sunsets in New Mexico, I took this one in Las Cruces.

11. hibiscus (2) Hibiscus (if I ever got another tattoo it would be a band of hibiscus).

12. CarneAdovada Carne Adovada, but it has to be really good like La Posta (Old Mesilla, NM or Little Anitas (Albuquerque, NM).

13. Ennis, Ireland

Getting to travel to Ireland, many times, when I was a flight attendant.

14. San Juan (ocean, wall)

Of all the beach towns we flew to, even Maui, I preferred San Juan, Puerto Rico for the beauty of the ocean and the beach.

15. presents My little munchkin.

16. 044 My niece.

17. Merrik My nephew.

18. family 2 Family, and this is only a SMALL part of my dad’s side of the family.

19. The girls

Ryeley, Kota and Tosh. Labs. All the dogs that have been part of the family. These 3 sisters are the late members.

20. Wedding outfit 3 One of the best pictures ever taken of my little munchkin. That was his wedding outfit for when my brother and sister in law got married, in the mountains.

21. Granny & Gramps2 copy My late grandmother, we called her Granny even though she hoped when we got older we would start calling her grandmother. It didn’t fit her at all to be called grandmother.

22. 005 (6) Creating. Looks like a big mess, because it really is, but something great, new or cool comes out of the mess.

23. Nicholas Sparks. I have read and loved every one of his books.

24. My iPhone, iPad, iTunes. Apple rocks. Too bad they are so expensive.

25. Sappy chic flics. I love them. Better when they make you cry.

26. Singing along to songs I know, in the car where no one else can hear me except maybe my son.

27. OneRepublic, Linkin Park, Nickelback, Train, Savage Garden…some of my favorite songs come from these bands. But I don’t like the heavy stuff. More like Secrets and If Everyone Cared.

28. Searching through crafting magazines looking for inspiration.

29. Looking through Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine.

30. Watching all The Nanny reruns.

31. NCIS, Burn Notice, White Collar, The Good Wife, Castle, Private Practice (those are current favorite shows, of course they change when a show starts to get “old”, like Grey’s Anatomy, or if a show just disappears).

32. The clean baby after bath and lotion smell.

33. The smell of cookies baking.

34. My mom’s lasagna and manicotti.

35. Fresh cut flowers.

36. Friends.

Happy Birthday to me and anyone else celebrating today (my cousin) and Happy Thanksgiving.
