things i love

It doesn't take a lot to make me happy. Today I am channeling Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music with a few of my favorite things. (Nick has never seen that movie - how is this possible?!?)

Coffee. I really can't live without it. My favorite is an iced tall half the chocolate white chocolate with cream americano. Nine times out of ten, though, I drink drip. It does the job.

Sleep. I really, really, really, really, really, really, really love when Nick let's me sleep in.

On that note, I love my husband.

Reality TV. Go ahead and judge me. I've lived in the shadows long enough. 

Legwear. I love you, Tim Gunn, but I don't care what you say about leggings, I will wear them, maybe everyday if I have to. Oh, and tights - especially in fun and funky colors.

Retro and vintage clothing. I wish we could bring back the days when women wore dresses and aprons everyday. Like a whole Mad Men-esque world. I thought this before that show existed - does that make me cool? 

When someone puts the laundry away. Someone being Nick. And he does, because I never, ever do.

My family, obviously.

Trader Joe's. Good food, good deals, free samples, lollipops and stickers that make shopping with three little dudes much, much easier.

Feeding my family healthy, nutritious food that tastes good.

And on that note, donuts.

Reading a really good book. I rarely make time for this, though. There are currently eight books on my nightstand that are collecting dust, but I WILL READ THEM.

Having parties. For so many reasons, mostly seeing friends and family. Good food and an excuse to really clean my house is a close second. 

Photography. I am trying to expand my scope beyond the boys in 2011. 

Art projects. I think I currently have 27 in the works, and I probably won't finish 24 of them.

Anthropologie. That place makes me happy, and it makes me feel poor.  But everything is just so pretty

Did I say coffee?
