My Favorite Things

Today's topic for our Thursday blog project is to create a list of our favorite things, the way that Oprah does every year.

I have never really paid much attention to Oprah's list before.  But, I am going to assume that I have Oprah's budget.  Although, my audience is pretty small, so if we take an Oprah sized budget and split it amoungst the handful of us, we could make out pretty good.  I think you will get 8 things.  I like 8.  It is a good number.

1.  Merino/Cashmere/Nylon yarn, in a variety of colorways and dyers.  I love MCN yarn.  It is so soft and squishy.  It makes my feet feel like they are wrapped in little sweaters from heaven.  I would like you to have that exprience too.  But you have to make the socks first.

2.  Godiva Truffles.  I love the way they melt in my mouth, but no raspberry ones, because they are have seeds and seeds aren't my favorite things.

3.  6 months worth of work outs with a trainer, 3x's a week.  I haven't really ever had this, but I would really like to.  I would like to have a trainer help me with my running form.

4.  Housecleaning every two weeks.  Having someone clean my house for me every other week is absolutely one of my favorite things!

5.  Trip to Hawaii.  Not much needs to be said about that.

6.  American Express Gift Card for $5,000 because we will need some spending money in Hawaii.

7.  Knit group.  I know it isn't a thing persay, and it is a bit hard for me to give it to you, but the people in that group have kept me sane, make me laugh, held my hand and been there for me during the good times and bad.  Everyone needs a place like that.

8.    Chai Tea Lattes.  I really enjoy those.  They are a special thing I only have occasionally.  For everyone, gift cards to Panara, because the Chai Tea Lattes are best there.

I hope you enjoy your goodie basket! :)

  1. Love it! I especially look forward to the Hawaii trip. :)

  2. Lovin' the chai tea; lovin' the housekeeper! I really need you to step into Oprah's shoes!
