"when I'm feeling sad, I simply remember a few of my favorite things & then I don't feel so bad."

I don't care for rain drops on roses or whiskers on kittens.  In all honesty I dislike the rain, flowers seem pointless to me and I'm more of a dog person.  However this has been a "when the dog bites, when the bee stings sort of day and week" and so remembering a few of my favorite things is just what I need. I think I'll take Julie Andrews' advice.

One of my most favorite things is French Press coffee. It's perfect!   My husband and I oooo & ahhhh over our coffee every morning.  You'd think it was something we didn't get to drink every morning.

I love sarcasm & dry humor.  Don't give me any of that class clown kind of humor.  I want to hear the rough tough cowboy utter a few choice words that perfectly fit the occasion.

Oh that note, I love "The Office" - thank you NBC for gracing the viewing world with a hefty dose of sarcasm and dry humor. 

Laughing at our 2 huskies is a all-time favorite.  When I'm in need of a good laugh I feed them seaweed for sushi rolls.  Watching them try and eat the stuff kills me.  I laugh till my stomach aches.  I promise I'll video tape it next time and dedicate a whole post to it. I guarantee it'll have you rolling as well. 

I SUPER LOVE new music! Every now and then Jadon downloads a new album and puts it on my shuffle as a surprise and it totally makes my day, week, possible year :-)  Of course it has to be a genre of music I enjoy.  I new album of country music just wouldn't quite cut it.  A little hip-hop is like cat-nip though. 

If you know me at all, you know that RUNNING is not just a favorite, it's more like an addiction - a good one!  I can't imagine ever stopping.  If I could choose anything to do - I would choose a perfect run: Sunny 68 degrees, slight breeze, on a mountain trail, with Jadon, new music on my shuffle, no IT band issues, no stomach issues, 9 miles of bliss!

Along with running, I love racing. I've always wanted to be first. I even beat my twin brother out the door on my "birthday"

Confession, I have a love affair with Sunshine!  No joke! I swoon on beautiful summer days full of sunshine.  Don't worry Jadon is ok with this.  He even buys me magazines and diet coke to accompany me as I lay in the sun and get my fix. 

I thoroughly enjoy weight lifting.  It's not something I do a lot of because I quickly turn hulk-ish if I do. I typically stick to body-weight strength training but every now and then I do some serious weight lifting and it makes me feel better darn good!

Did I mention I'm competitive?  Well I am and therefore winning at anything is major FAVORITE

I LOVE PEOPLE - I love watching them.  I love interacting with them. I love all the different characters God placed on this earth.  I love discovering what makes different people tick.  I love seeing people excel and succeed and love themselves. I also love giving people nicknames.  I can't tell you who they belong too but a few favorites are, "Ladies Home Journal", "Three 6 Mafia", "Philbert", T-Pain", "Earth-Child" & "Rain Man"  Can't you just picture them?

Once final MAJOR-FAV is Jadon! I like him a lot a lot!  I guess it's a good thing I married him - huh?

Well, as the song says, "Now I don't feel so bad" 

Time to go feed the dogs some seaweed.  Later!


  1. Love this! Um, about the nicknames... I'm a tad nervous wondering what mine/ours might be, lol!
