These are a few of my favorite things...

I was catching up on my most favorite blog after dinner and Katie, the author over at runsforcookies, dedicated her blog post tonight to all of her favorite things. At the end she asked fellow readers to post their favorite things so that is what I am doing tonight. Below you will find a wide variety of all the things I love.

Mark got this for me for my birthday this year, I guess he was tired of hearing me complain about horrible blender... I mean, the thing smoked when I would turn it on. I love this new blender! It does amazing things. 

This is my new favorite show. Ruby is on her weight loss journey (she was over 700 pounds) and she is just a complete crack up. Mark even likes watching with me with. 

 MAC makeup is my absolute favorite! I'm addicted to their eye shadow colors. 

I LOVE tea parties with my girl!!! This is one of my most favorite things in the world.

Mark bought me this camera when we were pregnant with Amelia and I love it. I'm a major picture taker and this camera captures some wonderful memories.

My favorite hair product, I'm all about the BIG SEXY HAIR!

Chia Seeds! I add them to my smoothies almost every morning. Seriously y'all... add them to your drinks, oatmeal, salads... they are great. 

Blended mocha from the local coffee shop by my office. It is incredibly delicious!!! But I can't allow myself to drink these very often... calories, calories, calories

SALAD IN A JAR!!! This is the easiest, yummiest and healthiest lunch. Just put the salad ingredients in a jar, making sure that the lettuce is on top, and these will keep for up to 5 days. Open, dump on a plate, add protein and a little dressing... and enjoy!

Cmaping and enjoying the great outdoors.

Wine!!! I haven't ventured too far into reds but I love a good Reisling. I'm more into the fruity sweet wine. 

My most favorite blog EVER! Katie is the person who got me really excited about losing weight. I can relate to her in a lot of ways and it blows my mind at how incredible her journey has been.

My best friends aka the "Iron Triangle" Left to right, Carrie, Molly and myself. We have been friends since we were 3 years old. 

Homemade gifts and my curly hair. My sister made this awesome vase for me and I absolutely love it. I also love when I curl my hair, I just don't always have time. 

Last but not least... my family! They are my everything!!!

So... people who read my blog. Comment on this post and let me know some of your favorite things. Thank you Katie for asking this of your readers, it was fun to put down some of these things.

  1. Thanks for the great list! I absolutely LOVE Ruby--but I haven't seen her show in a long time. Do you watch the re-runs, or is it on somewhere that I don't know about?! I'd love to see an update.

    1. I've been watching it on Netflix so they are just re-runs. They have seasons 1-3 on there and I just finished two. I randomly started watching it and now my husband is even hooked.

      Thank you so much for sharing your blog. I read it every day and absolutely love it. I am just starting a serious weight loss journey and you've really helped me. Thanks to you I've also tried my hand at running and found out I actually don't mind it. I always played sports growing up but was never a runner. I'm hoping to run/walk my first 5k this summer... Probably mostly walking since I am just new to the c25k. As I say in my blog... I believe a lot of my excitement and motivation comes from reading your blog. So again, thank you.
