20 of My Favorite Things

Peggy @ The Simple Woman challenged us to name our favorites on this list. I have a hard time picking favorites, because I like so many things and my "favorites" often change. But... I thought it would be a fun exercise. And so I'll post this with the disclaimer that the items on this list might not necessarily be my only favorite in any given category... and I reserve the right to change my mind!
1. Color: Sage green. (If you visit all 3 of my blogs, you might get that impression!) I also like red really well. I wear red a lot, and love red accessories... my purse, date book, cell phone, slippers, bathrobe, sandals... all red!

2. Dessert: Currently Breyers Dulce de Leche ice cream.

3. Smell: Well, I was going to say fresh-brewed coffee. But, no, I gotta go with my hubby fresh from the shower! Love dat man!

4. Flower: Oh, my! This is a hard one. But I do like the spring flowers best, I think. Tulips, pansies, daffodils, lilacs... probably because they don't last as long as the summer flowers.

5. Animal: This one's easy! Dogs. In particular, our adorable little border collie/beagle, Cookie.

6. Month: I used to say April, but since we live further north now where spring arrives later, I guess it's actually May.

7. Beverage: Starbucks Caramel Macchiato

8. Pair of shoes: Salt-Water sandals in the summer. Lands' End fleece clogs in the winter.

9. Snack: Another easy one! Popcorn. With real butter, please.

10. Song: It's hard to pick a favorite. It varies according to the seasons of my life... but one of my all-time favorites is He Abides.

11. Book: The Bible. (I know the question probably meant, "besides the Bible..." but I'm going to take the easy way out, because there is no way I can pick any other book as a favorite!)

12. Fruit: Strawberries.

13. Hairstyle: On me? I like the way it looks when it's down and curled, but it drives me crazy and gets in my way. So, yeah, I usually wear it pulled back in a doubled-up ponytail or a big clip.

14. Piece of clothing: My sherpa fleece hoodie.

15. Store to clothes shop: Christopher & Banks

16. Season: Spring!

17. Hobby: Reading. I have dozens of other hobbies that I thoroughly enjoy, but reading is at the top of my list. I also like to listen to audio books while I work on my other hobbies.

18. Thing to collect: Books!

19. Movie: Anne of Green Gables

20. Restaurant: On the Border

Pretty interesting answers. I have to say I like Anna of Green Gables too.

Constance said...

I'm with you on the sage green! I have loved earthy greens for as long as I can remember!

Green Gables, yup that's just one of my favorites too!

On the Border-thumbs up! Needless to say, living in Texas we have more Mexican restaurants than you can imagine. My absolute favorite though:
Casa de Leija!

This is my daughter Jessica and her husband Steven's (he's Mexican) house!

I knew there was a reason I liked you. We have a lot of things in common :o) I love Anne of Green Gables, Starbucks & well as pansies. Oh and I can't forget to mention the Bible.

Had a great time at the convention this weekend. Got most of my questions answered about Sonlight. I did place my order last night for a few of the things I needed. I made sure to mention your name. Thanks for all of your help!

Lol about your comment that you reserve the right to change your mind. I wish I had thought of that!

I'm a big Anne with an "e" fan, too. If you haven't already watched them, you might enjoy Tales from Avonlea.
