favorite things friday

Just too keep things interesting, I’m trying something new. Calling it "favorite things friday". It’s along the same lines as "my favorite things" post a few weeks ago. I initially thought it would be fun to just have this as a random musings type of post, including both the good and bad, but decided my energy is better spent on the positive things in life. My thought is that these will be nice fillers for the days/weeks I’m short on inspiration, which, fortunately, is not the case right now.

Here we go… my first official "favorite things friday" post:

– current favorite song: Something, by The Beatles. It’s just speaking to me right now.

– taking better care of myself. Whether it’s spending an extra five minutes in the morning to curl my hair, getting a pedicure or taking a long bath. It feels really good to spend extra time on myself. In the past two years, I’ve rarely worn make up, done very little with my hair and haven’t prioritized myself often, so it’s nice to indulge now.

– my new shampoo and conditioner – bed head, dumb blonde. Chemical laden, and completely opposite to the all organic stuff I’ve been using, I love it all the same. It makes my hair feel soft and look shiny, and really brings out my highlights. I’m not planning to use it daily, maybe weekly, alternating with my organic stuff, so hopefully that will reduce the negative aspects from the chemicals.

– C’s ever expanding vocabulary. She impressed me daily with new words and sentences. Yesterday when I got her up, I was wearing long green and red fuzzy socks and she said, "mommy’s got lots of socks on". Then she said, "I’m gonna go find baby owl, ok?" (one of her stuffed animals). "Ok," I said, And she ran off to find him. Hilarious.

– whipped cream vodka. So much fun. It’s best when it tops off another drink, rather than on it’s own. It’s a great addition to my current favorite drink, raspberry stoli with club soda. Yum!

– Seven jeans. Seriously never thought I would be convinced that a pair of jeans was worth $100. I’ve changed my mind. The fact that they’re rather kind with their sizing doesn’t hurt, either. :)

– my most favorite thing? all of your recent comments. It’s really nice to see and makes me happy to have people reading out there. Many thanks for that.

Happy Friday!

Update: Edited for rampant typos. :)
