My Favorite Things

The high today was in the low 70's. It felt incredible outside. For dinner we grilled out and let the kids play outside a little longer than normal. It was so cold out my daughter insisted on wearing her warm cozy jacket. I couldn't convince her that it was cold because she had her bathing suit on.

As it grew darker and the sun was setting, I noticed the sky looked amazing. I walked to the end of the driveway to get a better view. I am sure that cars driving by thought I was crazy, but I didn't care.


For some reason I just couldn't get that song from Sound of Music out of my head. I kept singing....these are a few of my favorite things. Anyway, it made me think it might be fun to share with you a few of my favorite things. Simple every day things. So here you go:

  • Snuggling with my kids first thing in the morning when they are all sleepy and cute
  • A fresh cup of hot coffee
  • The few minutes of solitude in the car on the way to work
  • Reading right before bed
  • An ice cold beer preferably on tap or a margarita (either will do)
  • Mexican food
  • Loading my photos on the computer and discovering that one of them is actually pretty good
  • Discovering a great new recipe
  • A big hug from my husband (he always knows when I need one)
  • My daughter's neverending imagination
  • My son's obsessive compulsive behaviors
  • And of course, blogging and reading blogs

Just to name a few. What are a few of your favorite things?

Those are wonderful shots - look at that beautiful sky! I'm pretty similar, I think. I'm sure my neighbors think I'm a little photo obsessed since I always carry a camera with me on all our walks.

Your favorite things are pretty similar to mine, too. :)

I can totally relate to the snuggling, the photos and the hug! I bet that was a beautiful sky to see. Love the colors.

A few of my favorite things are:
*Mt. Dew
*The feeling of crawling into a freshly changed bed
*Sleeping in when my husband is home on the weekend.
*A beach...any real beach on the ocean
*And of course, my D80 :)

It's been in the 70s here too! I'm LOVING it! Cool weather is one of my favorite things. :o) That song is from The Sound of Music, tho! Your list of favorite things sounds pretty familiar.

Great evening sunset shot.
