A Few of My Favorite Things

....These are a few of my favorite things:

--A clean house
--Starbuck's tall nonfat, no whip Mocha
--Reading new blogs (hint, hint blogger friends!)
--The sound of 85,000 people screaming "Boomer" and "Sooner" back and forth across Owen Field
--My iPod (I have over 2,500 songs on there, and I only listen to about 40 of them! But, hey, there are lots to choose from should I choose to do so)
--Anything relating to my iPod
--Book Club
--Curling up in bed with a magazine and a purring kitty
--Friday after work when People arrives in my mailbox
--When I find a new album or a new artist and fall in love with an offbeat song....then hear it become a hit a few months later. Makes me feel like I have great taste in music!
--Anything Britney Spears, trainwreck and all (hhhmmm...makes you doubt my great taste in music, huh?)
--When John picks me up at the airport
--Cracker Barrel biscuits
--Ruby red glass
--Frat Pack movies (Ferrel, Vaughn, Stiller, Wilson, Wilson)
--Apatow movies (Rogen, Rudd, Carrell)
--The phrase "that's bad @$$"
--Walking away from an important presentation at work knowing I nailed it
--That feeling about 20 minutes after you take an Excedrin when you realize your headache is gone
--Folding clean laundry
--Laughing until my sides hurt
--Bare Minerals makeup
--College Football Saturdays
--Family cookouts
--Looking, but not buying, Coach purses
--Quoting movies and "The Office" with John
--My mom's dog, Simba
--Really, really good Iced Tea (Johnnie's comes to mind)
--Getting up early when I don't have anywhere to be
--Cheerios with 1/2 cup of milk and lots of honey on top
--70-degree, low humidity days when I can go walking without sweating
--Pajama pants
--My grandma's house
--When my grandma stands in the driveway as we're driving away and blows kisses until we're out of sight
--Making my grandpa laugh
--The first time I wear my black wool pea coat each winter
--Fancy post-its
--Pillsbury Southern Style frozen biscuits (when they're not frozen)

And those are just a few of my current favorite things!

***Editor's Note: Just realized I mentioned biscuits TWICE in this entry. Weight Watchers is going to be hard!!***

Amen to #4. Don't ever take that for granted. At least I'll be able to be there for Homecoming.

Can you spread your love of folding clean laundry over to our house?

I love hearing Mario Tobias yelling Boomer at OU/Texas games...

#1 How would you know? I've been to your house many times. It's never anything BUT imacculate.

PS: ALL biscuits are yummy!
