It's been far too long since I've made a blog post, but honestly, I've had nothing to post about. Really. No pictures, no incredible happenings, nothing fantastic outside of normal life and getting ready for the holidays.
So, I've decided to be like Oprah and have a "My Favorite Things" list. Haha. We'll see how this goes and I'll try to provide pictures as aids to my list.
1. My new favorite music of all time: OWL CITY! The group (or really just a guy named Adam Young) came out with a new album lately called Ocean Eyes. My favorite song is "Fireflies". You may have heard it on the radio. Or maybe not. But I highly recommend it!2. These adorable Naughty Monkey boots that I got for my birthday from Trevor. They are quite possible the cutest and most comfy boots I've ever owned. They make me feel like a rock star when I wear them with black leggings and a sweater dress! :) And it's kind of hard to tell in the picture, but the little wedge heels are black.3. Special moments with Trevor. Seriously, sometimes I just feel so blessed when we're just sitting there cuddling and laughing for a few minutes. This usually happens when Trevor's trying to put off work or homework, and just wants a minute to be with me. It seriously makes my heart smile. I am glad that we have more of these happy moments than unhappy ones :) Today, Trevor texted me that he loved me and I texted back that I loved him too. He then replied "Hooray! We still love each other after 18 months of marriage!" to which I replied "We're doing it! We're really doing it!". It's so exciting to look back and see that, despite many odds, our love has grown tremendously for each other over the last year and a half of marriage. I look forward to the next 18 months and eternity as well.
4. Feeling like I really accomplished something that I didn't expect I could do. Like finally get the water heater fixed at one of the apartments I manage. I walked into Lowe's and managed (with a lot of help!) to walk out with this burner assembly:That fits perfectly in here:Fortunately, I had a guy who actually put it together for me. But I learned far more than I ever thought I would about hot water heaters. And I have now decided that there are at least two things I'll always someone else fix for me: 1. Hot water heaters and 2. Cars. Yowzers! These things just have too many little parts that have to work together perfectly in order to work right. I'm not touchin' them! :)
5. Baking. Yep. I'm not a huge huge fan of cooking, but I really do love to bake. I guess it's because I can do it, and I'm usually pretty good at it! Speaking of, I have about 1403927 frozen bananas in my freezer that I need to make into delicious bread. My favorite recipe can be found here. And here's the picture:I've made this recipe about 4 or 5 times now and I LOVE it! :) So, go check it out and let me know. In addition, I've seen some fantastic looking holiday cakes that I'm tempted to make this season. However, this means I'll have to get a cake stand. There's nothing to make a cake look pretty like a beautiful stand! I'm particular to the glass varieties:6. Well. This one is obvious but YOGA is still one of my favorite things. And good news - I'm still planning on certifying to become an instructor! Certification begins on February 22nd, 2010 and lasts four weeks. I am SO excited for February! :)
7. And to end my current list of favorite things, I'd have to say FOX television. No no no... not the NEWS. Garsh. The NETWORK! :) And two shows in particular...
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE...And GLEE!!!!!!...
I highly recommend dedicating two hours on both Tuesday and Wednesday night to these shows. They truly are awesome :)
Well, I think that about ends my list for now. Of course, chocolate definitely is one of my favorite things but it's so normal that I didn't feel it deserved to make the list. My other favorite thing in the WORLD is sleeping. I am so good at it and it always makes me feel so wonderful!!!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my list. Maybe you'll even be reminded of some of YOUR favorite things!! :)
