a few of my favorite things

Today is Friend Makin' Monday over at Kasey's place. She has asked us to share 10 of our favorite things. I wanted to go beyond what I might normally choose, so I tried to get a little creative!

10 (out of many) of my Favorite Things

OK, this one wasn't extremely creative, but it should be extremely obvious! I couldn't live without these 3 blessings in my life! I am one lucky woman!

I really enjoy taking some "me" time and using this creative outlet as a way to have fun and enjoy some time with friends. I use to be able to scrapbook at home, but not anymore with 2 kids! We have a scrapbooking store in our town that holds weekly crops, so I try to get in there once a month.


(especially at 50-75% off!)

Whenever I have some down time (usually at night with my computer on my lap), I like to look through some of the shows taped on my DVR and enjoy a lazy couple of hours of reality TV, like Amazing Race, Survivor, Biggest Loser, The Bachelor...but don't worry, I'm not a crazy reality TV junkie!

There's nothing like a yummy sandwich like this, with a side of Baked Lay's and some delicious fruit. My favorite is with REAL deli meat from the's a rare treat!


I love taking pictures, looking through pictures, anything with pictures! It's such a wonderful way to document life...what would we do without it?

I love the feeling of a new hair cut and color after coming home from the salon. I usually feel like a million bucks and so I usually plan my hair appointments on a day where I'll be going somewhere (anywhere) that evening!

Give me something to organize and I'm all over it...junk drawers, closets, you name it, I love it! Check out some of my organized projects here, or all of my organizing madness.

I really enjoy country music, and right now my favorite artist is Carrie Underwood. I was able to go to her concert back in November, and she was amazing! Carrie Underwood's CD Carnival Ride is nicknamed "mommy's music" by my daughter Mikayla.


LOVE THIS!! My husband is such a great man...he lets me sleep in often on the weekends (we try to trade off for each other, but I often get more spoiled...thanks, babe!)

Come and join us at Kasey's and meet some new blogging buddies!

Fun stuff...I also love to organize. Is that kind of weird? Now my 5 year old has to "organize" everything...from the silverware when she's unloading the dishwasher to her dress-up jewelry.

Katie said...

Fun list! So, what do you think will happen on the Bachelor finale? There is a lot of talk about a crazy "after the rose" here in MI b/c of our hometown connection to Molly.

Lyndsie Miles said...

That's a great list! I love those things as well. The new hair cut is my favorite as well. I always want to go out after a hair cut.

Oh yeah - I love reality TV, too. Less so now than before but I do watch TAR, Survivor, True Beauty, and Hell's Kitchen!

Hey Heidi!
Love you list! Man I really need to get a DVR! I love to get Deals too! Pictures is on my list! I love to organize, but not clean! I love getting my hair done too!
Love new looks. Right now I am growing mine out. It's been short for 8 years or more. Ready for a change.

Hi Heidi -

Loved your list! Aren't you glad Amazing Race is on again? It's one of the only shows that we watch as a family.

Have a great day!

Sleeping in is the best! And I love to do it after staying up all night catching up on reality TV... :-)

Kasey said...

Enjoyed your list, and have to agree with you on pictures and looking through pictures. Pictures are definately a beautiful way to document life.

I loved this so I decided to play along! I also LOVE deals on clearance. And a new cut/color. Need one right now!!

Amazing Race & Survivor are family favorites!! I swear our lives come to a halt the nights these shows are on. SO glad they are back with new shows right biggest wish is to be on the Amazing Race someday....after I have this 3rd child, and get my kids into school, and have lots of money to take the time off from working.....hee hee :)

Shawn said... perfect day.

Waking up, after sleeping in of course, with perfect sassy hair then scrapbooking for hours-uninterrupted!

Unknown said...

oh, i love, love, love sleeping in, carrie underwood, new hairdo's, pictures and good deals. Lots in common!!! I love organizing but rarely find the time to keep it up. a BIG problem. Great list.

Amy said...

Ok, I just went and looked at all your post about organizing, and I told my husband I wanted to hire you to come organize my stuff! He laughed and said we'd have to take out a loan to pay someone to tackle our mess! LOL plus, "Where would she sleep" he ask jokingly because it would take you forever! LOL.
Love your blog!

Miller Racing Family said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have such a super cute list this week. I agreed with most everything on it, especially the reality tv. My two favs are Biggest Loser and the Bachelor, though I can't figure the Bachelor out this year. I want to invite you to come over to my blog, I am having a bath and body works giveaway! Have a blessed day!

Monica said...

Hi nice to meet you too!I'd have to say my favorite from your list would be sleeping in,how come I didn't think of that?

We seem to have a few things in common - family, scrapbooking, photo taking...and I'm even starting to like organizing a little now that I have a new house! I thought about making a list and participating this week but never got to it. Thanks for sharing.
