These are a Few of My Favorite Things...

1. Scrapbooking (duh)
This has been such a cool thing for me because it is the first time that I can truly say I'm good at something. Better yet? I'm a better scrapbooker than all of my friends and they know it (and I didn't even have to tell them). I hate to rub it in but come on! I just think of all those years attempting to play basketball, volleyball, baseball...

2. Picture Frames
My "projects." Most of my frames were bought at garage sales for a dollar or less. I usually just paint them one color and thats it. It would be fun to do a little more than that...

3. Trident gum-original flavor
The ONLY gum I ever buy, they even sell it at Costco!

4. Our Strawberry Blond Ice Cream "Creation" from Cold Stone
Yum! It has stawberry ice cream, real strawberries, graham crackers, caramel, and whipped cream. Delicious!

It is my style inspiration for one day when Jeff and I own our own home. Bright vibrant colors and a modern, yet cozy, feel. I'm pretty sure I love everything there!

6. Smelling the Seasons
I love stepping outside and smelling that distinct change in season. It smelled like winter last night. Bring it on! That means my wedding is that much closer.

7. Brightly Colored Flowers
I absolutely love bright colors, mixing them together is even better. I was thinking of having pale yellow flowers for the wedding but now I'm going to put some other color in too.

8. Talking to Jeff on the way to work in the morning
Jeff calls every day as I'm walking to my car. Recently he's had to work at different buildings (he works for the city) so his times are slightly different or something and he hasn't been calling me too much. I never realized how much I enjoyed those early morning chats until he didn't call!

Have a great weekend!

Fun post Beatle! I've never scrapbooked, but I'm pretty sure I'd become an addict if I ever tried it. But I'm thinking I've got my hands pretty full with my junk addiction. ;)

Hey, I didn't know you did that. - I love to redo picture frames. In fact, I'm working on a couple right now.

Trident original is all I ever chew.

That Cold Stone flavor sounds awesome. I've only been once, and that was when we were there (where you live) last spring. Not too many of them in my area.

I love IKEA too! But the style is too modern for my junk tastes. I just love a lot of the home accessories that they carry. And the room displays are full of ideas/inspiration!

Nothing better than the smell of the seasons. Love that too. I'm so thankful to live in a place where the seasons change! {Too often, I take that for granted.}

And I love bright colored flowers. Lately, I've been loving pinks.

{P.S. I miss you!} :)

I have to not the same as you!! You and Jen are all about color. When you told me you bought some red boots I was not one bit surprised, Of course I got black!! :)

~Junkyard Jennifer said...

Haha! And I thought the red boots sounded awesome. I'd love a pair myself. :)

Hey, where's a picture of them?

I still don't have them!! I had to order them...I can't remember if I said that, and they gave me black! So I reordered them and I'm guessing they'll be in tomorrow! I hope so, I sure could have used them this weekend.

Oops, I forgot to say to Amanda: your post made me laugh, when I went fabric shopping with Marijane...oh I'll just make this a post.
