RePost of My Favorite Things and Giveaway

So I have this friend (The famously funny, fantabulously fit, MannLady) and she is having this giveaway. I just had to participate, because as she would say…”that’s the way I roll” So in honor of her post and keeping with her rules, I am reposting “My Favorite Things”

When Julie Andrews sings “Favorite Things” it gives me a warm “Towel-out-of-the-dryer” feeling. She finds comfort from simple things and carries those thoughts through the rough times. I think that it is a survival instinct to find light in the dark, joy in the sorrow.

(Not that I am feeling sorrowful) I just want to share some of my favorite things. You can sing along with the tune if you know it…

Girls in bed sleeping and a warm plate of burritos,

A sunny day outside that is void of mosquitos.

Being able to find my cell phone and key rings,

These are a few of my favorite things.


Savings with coupons and a day on the lounge chair,

Kisses from children and not having to do my hair.

A day picking flowers and not one bee sting,

These are a few of my favorite things.


A good book to read and a warm cup of coffee,

The house already clean and my mom’s homemade toffee.

Playing with the kids on the big slide and playground swings,

These are a few of my favorite things.


When the bills come,

When my makeup runs.

When I am feeling sad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don’t feel so bad.
