I Dig it...

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad....I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad....

Here are a few of my favorite things currently: (I kind of feel like Oprah right now! Except you aren't magically getting ANY of these things, you don't really care what my favorite things are, and no one is screaming/fainting/crying/passing out because of this HUGE reveal. Nonetheless, I will begin.)
  1. It's SPRING!! 85-95 degree days are here!
  2. It's baseball season
  3. Cherries in the Snow, You're a Pisa Work and Cajun Shrimp toenail polish
  4. Easter Bunnies and seeing the little girls in their fancy Easter dresses and patent leather shoes
  5. The reason for Easter: Celebrating Jesus as a risen Savior!
  6. Monday night TV: DWTS and The Hills
  7. The Duel starting again on MTV (I just love these challenge shows...such trash, but it sucks me in)
  8. Sno Cone season
  9. Grilling out and eating outside
  10. My new found favorite: Magnolia Banana Pudding
  11. Black Mango iced tea
  12. MY SISTER IS MOVING BACK TO TEXAS!!!!!! If any of you live in the Dallas (or Austin) area and are looking to hire a darling, hard working, smart as a whip, former (well, former after tomorrow) advertising assistant at O, The Oprah Magazine let me know. I can hook you up!
  13. Coconut Lime candles from Wal-Mart (Remember the $3.00 Mainstay ones I told you about?? They have a new summer scent.
  14. Sonoma chicken salad from Whole Foods. Special thanks to my MIL for introducing this to me
  15. Planning fun weekends with friends involving the outdoors, grilling out, golf for the guys and poolside gossip for the girls! CAN.NOT.WAIT.
  16. I'm loving these flip flops although I would NEVER pay that price for them. They're cute, but not THAT cute.

PS...I've gotten a few e-mails asking what I do and what I like, etc. I have answered a bit of what I like in this post. As for what I do, I am a meeting planner for a non-profit association. I plan our annual conference, board meetings, and many other events and meetings throughout the year. If you have any questions for me, or would like to nominate something for a Fabulous Find Friday, OR, if you are looking for a certain something and would like my help in finding it e-mail me at: . I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

I haven't even read your whole blog yet... but your first line made me want to send you THIS:

First thing on the page... the video about Do Re Mi. This will definitely be added to your list.

And as a co-worker of Tiffany's, I can so vouch for the lovely scent of the coconut lime candle. I haven't been to Wal-Mart in years (don't ask) and when I get the courage up to enter that madhouse, I WILL buy one!:)

I am definitely trying that chicken salad... looks awesome!!! And you are so wrong... I AM VERY EAGER to know all of your favorite things/interests/hobbies!!! As far as going to Wally World, I have just recently become ok with stepping foot in there (though I still take a bleach bath when I get home), so I might try one of those candles. Maybe.
