A Few of My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

-My Favorite Things 

I just saw the trailer for a movie coming out in December called Saving Mr. Banks.  And it already feels like a Christmas movie!  And Tom Hanks AS Walt Disney???  Genius.

Trailer: Saving Mr. Banks on Disney Video

Really?  I think this movie will be added to my list of Favorite Things before it’s even in theaters.  Oh Disney, how I love your creativity and story telling abilities!

And now for a few of MY favorite things!

  1. Which brings me to my 3 favorite Disney cartoon movies.  All 3 have a different place in my childhood memory.  I remember going to see the Little Mermaid in the theater no less than 3 times and by the third time, I’d listened to the soundtrack (on cassette tape) so much that I sang along to the movie!  Let’s just say I wasn’t the most popular person the theater that day…
  2. Essie Nail Polish.  Their creative names for their colors is enough to get me looking at their display for at least 10 minutes!
  3. Nutella… and now Biscoff Spread.  If you thought Nutella was amazing, just wait until you try this!
  4. Cherry Coke. *sigh* Even though we haven’t had a date in 4 months, my taste buds still crave that bubbly every so often.
  5. Apple.  Yep, I’m an Apple Addict.  iPhone, iMac, iPad… iKnow.
  6. Y’all know I love TOMS. And I recently got some black crochet ones that are great.  But ORANGE ones??  Awesome!
  7. I went into Anthropologie to get their monogrammed mugs… but then I saw these!  Um, love them.

So, in honor of the beauty of sharing and things I love and it being Tuesday, I’m going to send someone one of these mugs with your initial on it!  All you have to do is leave a comment below with one of YOUR favorite things by midnight and I’ll announce a winner tomorrow morning!

    That’s a tough one. I’d say one of my favorite things is craft paper! The stuff you get a hobby lobby! Hah

    Favorite things:

    Lion King – it was in the vault until right before my 18th birthday. Guess who got a copy for their big 1-8?

    Hummus and dark chocolate chips, though not together.

    These jeans from Mavi. I wish I had a pair in every color. (http://www.mavi.net.au/serena-black/)

  4. Soooo it may seem like I am copying you but TOMS are my 1st favorite thing! I own about 10 too many pairs :) Chacos are my second favorite thing! Love this post by the way!

    Fun post!! My “b” anthro mug is one of my favorite things. Seriously, I use it every single morning. Sure would be nice if I had two of them.
