When I meet someone, I love to ask questions about their favorite things. I always love how different we all are and finally learned to embrace and adore that you and i don’t have to like the same things and still become the sweetest of kindred spirits. I even like it better that way sometimes. Because I love hearing about things I’ll probably never submerge myself in – but can somehow live vicariously through you as you tell me about your favorite things. So I’m copying our fearless leader in the #write31days challenge, Crystal Stine, and am going to have Friday Favorites because, well, Friday is just a great day to end the week, chatting about all of our favorite things.
So, since we’re just getting to know each other, here are a few of my favorite things… (humming in the back of my head “girls in white dresses, and blue satin sashes, snowflakes that fall on my nose and eyelashes… 🙂 )
Comfy pants – well, duh 🙂 You probably could have guessed that. Whenever I plan a girls night at the house, there’s always one requirement…elastic waistbands. There’s just something that happens between girlfriends when there’s nothing to suck in or squeeze into. And these are some of my favorite ones by Karen Neuburger (but I got mine at Costco…and certainly didn’t pay $48 for them).
Fuzzy socks – I think everyone needs a bright printed pair of fuzzy socks! I was recently at a country general store in the NC mountains and found these…and OMG…they are the softest ever…I’m in love!
Dark Chocolate + Raspberry = Heaven
Yes, I firmly believe that although the Bible says that the streets of heaven are made with gold, there just might be dark chocolate raspberry rivers alongside of them. I recently discovered this at Target and about pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming…I could drink this with a straw.
Colorful pens – the bright & colorful ones that write really smoothly are my favorite. I’m somewhat of a pen junkie and I might have a problem – I have specific pens for my planner, my journal, my thankfuls and my doodles. Here they are…
oooh, just writing about all these of my favorite things gets me giddy and ready for the weekend! And it’s getting chilly here in North Carolina and snuggling up with some comfy pants, fuzzy socks and some kind of yummy dessert sounds like the perfect way to end the week – TGIF! 🙂
