My Favorite Things | Just for Fun

May 1, 2012

I feel like I’m always starting a conversation/status by saying, “I am obsessed with….”  So – I thought it’d be fun to make a little blog post about the things that I am currently obsessed/in love with.  How many of you share my same loves?

1.) Summer dresses:  Um, yes.  Last year was declared my “summer of dresses” and from June 1 until I couldn’t take the cold, I didn’t wear a single pair of pants.  Skirts and summer dresses fill up my closet, for the most part.

2.) Monster Absolutely Zero:  Judge all you want, but this girl is in constant need of a caffeine kick.  I would KILL for a super yummy latte from Later Alligator (my favorite local café/restaurant) but I can’t afford the calories.  Something about this drink has me addicted.

3.) Aviator Sunglasses:  I have more pairs of these than I’m willing to admit.  Most of the time, when I’ve lost my “favorite $5 pair”, another one turns up immediately. Haha.

4.) PURPLE!!!: I have issues.  I own more purple than one human being probably should.  Maybe it’s because I think redheads look best in this color?  Maybe I’m channeling my late grandmother’s obsession with the color?  Or maybe the color of royalty is just constantly calling to me for a reason.

5.) Koozies: They’re cute.  They keep my hands from freezing.  I can make them out of yarn.  Enough said.

6.) WVU:  Do I even need to explain why I love all things Mountaineer??

7.) Handmade Anything: Be it Etsy, a seller on Facebook, craft shows, small town shops…if it’s handmade, I’m going to love it even a little more.  I think it’s amazing that people take time to create something for others’ enjoyment.  It’s so much more special than a machine created item.

8.) Chevron: It’s super trendy right now but I don’t mind.  I’m hooked.  I want everything chevron that I can get my hands on!!  I’m on the hunt for fabric at the moment…but I’ve come up pretty short so far.

9.) gDiapers: I am a loud and proud cloth diapering momma.  This is easily the best company I have ever worked with.  Their customer service is top notch and the CEOs of the company (husband-wife team) are sweet, giving and caring.  I couldn’t ask for a better company and product to cover my little one’s bum with.  (Please go check them out!!

10.) Orchids: They’re delicate, exotic and beautiful.  And we currently have three pots growing in our home that I’d like to expand upon.  Something about these flowers makes me want to become the green thumb I am not.

11.) Fonts: I am a self-proclaimed font addict.  I actually got a card in the mail the other day and instead of being excited about the party I was invited to, I was excited because I owned that font on my computer.  Haha.  I download so many different ones to try out, it’s ridiculous.  My husband can attest to this statement {most likely with an eye roll or two}.

12.) My Family: My husband is my rock.  My son is my ray of sunshine.  My parents, in-laws, siblings, niece, nephews, aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins are the glue that keeps me together.  They make me crazy and keep me sane at the same time.  I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂
