Favorite Things

I've been seeing these posts about Favorite Things cropping up in blogland. (Melissa at 320 Sycamore and Emily at Jones Design Company are my favorites.) To echo another blogger, the first thing that pops into my head when you'd ask what my favorite things are would be, "raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...(something something something)...brown paper packages tied up with string; these are a few of my favorite things..."

Sorry. I got little lost singing in my head. Back to business:
Here is my own list of favorite things. If you make one, please let me know in your comments. I would love to hear what you love!

1. My family
The Best Husband Ever, The Darlingest Daughter Ever, and the Most Loved Baby Ever.

2. Hoop Earrings
These have become my dressing up staple. I feel almost glamorous wearing them. :) My sister didn't wear these, and was kind enough to give them to me.

3. Blistex Silk and Shine
I have an obsession with my lips. Weird, I know, but I always have this on or near me.

4. Cinnamon Sticks
Anything that smells of cinnamon. Spiced cider, cinnamon in candles, I really like the smell of cinnamon.

5. Candles
Speaking of cinnamon scents, it's almost time to pull out my very favorite candles and celebrate the chilly weather with warm smells.

6. Hobby Lobby
This should be self-explanatory. It's on an even favorites list with Target.

7. Eggnog
My favorite drink ever. I wish it was made year round. Perhaps I do appreciate it more because of its limited availability.

8. Lysol Kitchen Cleaner
My kitchen's best friend. Counters, under the cabinets, around the sink, the fronts of my appliances.

9. Netflix
This has been our biggest money saver, believe it or not. $9 a month, and we get as many movies as we like. Love it!

10. Swiffer
And last but not least, this is my top cleaner. My floors smell amazing. I love the lavender wet Swiffer wipes. Mops are SO yesterday!


  1. Hoop earrings, chap stick, lysol, netflix, cinnamon, and CANDLES! I now know why we are friends!!! :)
    Umm, but where was shopping on that list?! ;) hehe

  2. Love the first picture, Hannah! Ava is truly precious and adorable! Her little pigtails always bring a smile to my face and her giggle always brings joy to my heart! =)


  3. Elizabeth, thank you for your sweet comments! You are a dear girl to know. :)

    Malaika, I did post about Hobby Lobby and Target..doesn't that count as shopping? :)

  4. Hi Hannah,
    Wow...that first picture of you and Scott and Ava is amazing! So perfect! =) I love it.
    Ava's pigtails are adorable as well. ;)
