these are a few of my favorite things

a cheery new flowery tablecloth to brighten the kitchen

long walks and even longer conversations with a dear best friend

teal nail polish

my new Liberty of London top (I also got this one. They were on clearance! happy happy!)
thanks for taking my picture, Emma Joy

this verse:
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong, and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

and this one:
"Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life." Proverbs 4:23

Running to Muse's new album

this silly little girl and her new phase of funny faces and attitudes. She's a hoot.

wonderful friends who have birthdays and invite you to a swanky hotel to party till midnight (till midnight? who are these wild people?? I hardly knew us.)

egg/salsa/avocado wraps for lunch

new piano books

picking rose buds from my garden and then watching them bloom on my kitchen table

what are a few of your favorite things these days, my dears?

forgive me, I realize this is a cop-out post, something to fill the space ... but I'm really busy this week getting ready for my mom and sisters to come on Thursday. whee!! :)

Can Emma come take my photo too? Seriously, that photo of you is gorgeous, out of this world. You are one hot chick! Drool.

OKAY. You are so flipping adorable, it kills. That top is lovely on you! And the bangs! Mine never look that perfect.

And Rosalie is the doll of dolls. Can she GET any cuter?? No, I just don't think it's possible.

Okay, let me see... my favorite things are being able to wear pretty dresses in this nice weather (finally!), putting Maddie's hair in a ponytail with a ribbon (I did it and died of the adorableness) & reading your comment on my latest post about Emma throwing your tampons. I was laughing out loud... hysterical!

P.S. I'm all about the cop-out posts.

Steph said...

There are Liberty of London items on CLEARANCE? I am currently plotting my next Target run just to go searching.

And little Emma is quite the photographer! She's a natural!

When you said something on Facebook the other day about running with your buddy Muse, I was about to be all "I love Muse!" - but I thought maybe you were calling something your "muse". And I didn't want to sound retarded if you weren't talking about the band Muse. LOL!!!

Barbie said...

So fun! Emma is quite the photographer! Has Lorie been giving her lessons? :) Mmmm...egg salsa avacado wraps sound delish!

Mommy Diffee said...

What a great list. Love that top! My favorite thing today is that I get to have all the windows open and air out my house because it is just gorgeous outside. Oh, and my other favorite thing is that I get to leave in 3 days for a five day excursion to Miami with my man! Happy Mother's Day to me! I hope you have a great visit with your family!

Stacie said...

I couldn't believe how much Liberty of London stuff there was in the clearance section! NOT that I mind of course, I got the dress that matches the other top you have - we will have to be twinsies sometime :)

Sunny said...

I read this forever ago and forgot to leave a comment. Just the mere mention of you eating an egg/salsa/avocado wrap made me crave one. I honestly made one right away for breakfast, lol. I was so happy I had everything I needed on hand. :) That is a great favorite thing!
