My Favorite Things ... part 2



I love crayons!

Think about it ... it's a just a box full of wax sticks.  But all those colors, the choices, the creative possibilities.  Do I pick Jungle Green or Forest Green?  Atomic Tangerine or Mango Tango?  Purple Pazzazz or Razzmatazz?  

Crayons just make me happy.



I have so many favorite movies.  I seriously cannot pick just one.  But I will.  Here's my current most favorite movie ... 

Don't be mistaken ... it has to be the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice.  I've seen the other versions.  They're ok.  But this is THE one for me.  I could watch it over and over.  I have.  And I do.  I love this movie, I love Elizabeth Bennett, I love Mr. Darcy.  I love Colin Firth.  What can I say?

I had a previous post about my standing date with the espresso machine.
That's my morning wake up call.  But in the afternoon I like a cup of tea.  In the summer it's iced.  The rest of the year, it's a nice comfy warm cup.

I keep an assorted stash of teas in an old jar.

My current favorite is Earl Grey.  I also like chai, if I'm in a chai mood.  Or even good ol' Lipton hits the spot on most days.


Ok, here's a good idea ...
A nice warm cup of tea ...

and this ...

That just makes me happy.

Don't forget I'm going to be giving away a few of my favorite things when I'm done rambling on and on about them.  My birthday present to you!  So I hope you're taking notes and I hope you check back for more to come.

Do you have a favorite movie?
One that you can you just watch over and over?
One that makes you happy?

I'm not usually an over and over again movie person. My hubby and sis are and drive me nuts with it, but I can watch Napolean Dynomite frequently, and Harold and Maude.

And yes. Colin Firth is yummy!

You've Got Mail. I love the story and the characters.

I can watch Love Actually over and over again. That and Four Weddings and a Funeral. They both make me happy...

Can you believe I have never seen that movie? I think I hear a weekend rental calling my name.
