We heard the song “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things” today and the kids started listing their favorite things. I felt like joining in – so here’s my list!
Mental Floss magazine. My brother got this for me for my birthday and I love it. It’s a magazine full of trivia and cool articles filled with information. Unfortunately for us women, most magazines think the most we can handle is 250 words on how walking will shed pounds (it doesn’t). So I’m always excited when I can find a magazine that actually has articles to read…actual, real words! Check out their website for more info and definitely consider gifting this to any trivia/reading/information buffs on your Christmas list.
Goody “ouchless” hair elastics. I should have taken out stock in these. I have left a trail of ponytail holders behind me since 1923. I buy them all the time and they magically disappear.
Pens! I buy pens all the time too. Mr MIP openly mocks me for it. Oh well, he has no idea what it is to be addicted (except to poofa popcorn).
(I’d put a picture of my favorite pen here – but I can’t find it…or the pen! There’s a certain, specific type I have to have. Anything else is just…not a pen.)
PopChips! Have you tried these yet? You might as well! They are all natural and not baked or fried. I’m in lurv.Their site: PopChips.
Anything by Daphne DuMaurier. I generally avoid romantic trivial books, but for Daphne, I allow exceptions. Right now I’m reading The King’s General. It’s just about the depth I can handle right now with all our busy-ness. Yes, it’s trite and a romance, but it’s Daphne!
What are a few of your favorite things?
