About Me Monday: My Favorites

A few random facts about a Frugality Blogger

Welcome back to another edition of About Me…Wednesday? Oops. I didn't have time to do it on Monday so here I am! The purpose of A.M.M's is for us to get to know each other better. Since last time I shared my pet peeves, I thought I'd get us on a positive track and share my FAVORITES (since it is Nothing Negative Week and all). So be sure to share YOUR favorites in the comments so I can get to know YOU better as well! Here goes nothin'…

Some of My Favorites:

  • Slushy drinks. Not slurpees, SLUSHYs. Namely blue coconut cream slush from Sonic. Dreamy
  • My Dyson vacuum. If you buy any other vacuum you are wasting your money.
  • Biceps and shoulders. I think that's one of the sexiest part of a man, and I think toned shoulders look so good on a woman too!
  • Italian food, namely pasta. And ravioli. And tortellini. And anything pasta-related.
  • $1 E.L.F lip gloss. I swear it's the best.
  • Aqua Di Gio men's fragrance. I know it's old school, but seriously, I could eat it. It smells SOOOO GOOD. I won't let Bubba wear anything else.
  • Sushi. Especially the hole-in-the-wall super cheap stuff.
  • The show “Parenthood“. Hands-down the best drama ever created. It's so REAL I forget I'm watching TV sometimes! Fabulous, highly recommended. I laugh out loud (but not LOL…) and cry every time.
  • Reality TV, namely cooking and dating shows. Which is funny on the cooking shows aspect because I don't really like cooking all that much. Some of my favorites include Chopped, The Taste, Iron Chef, and Top Chef. Oh and I totally want to be on “Worst Cook In America” someday. Non-cooking shows include The Bachelor, So You Think You Can Dance, America's Got Talent, Fashion Star, occasional shows on TLC, and Shark Tank (my most favorite)
  • Colors: Aqua blue, gray, gold, and peachy colors. Basically my website but peach instead of yellow 🙂
  • Type of movies: Action and feel-good.
  • Some of my favorite movies include: Warrior (I loved it SO SO SO MUCH), Remember the Titans, Dan in Real Life, The Blind Side, Titanic (who doesn't love Titanic??), any of the Mission Impossible movies, and I'm sure lots more that I can't think of.
  • Sour candy. And those mini Cadbury eggs. Oh baby I can't wait for Easter…
  • My huge jug of water with a straw that you get from the hospital. I have two from my last 2 babies and they are precious to me. Best things to drink out of.
  • Yellow labs. What can I say, they are the best dog breed ever.
  • Vacation types: weekend trips with friends, the Oregon coast, anything Disney-related (though I haven't done that yet with my family), and Cruises. I could cruise forever. (More on that soon…spoiler alert…)
  • Autumn. Best season ever.
  • Odd numbers. If you ask me to pick a number from 1-100 it will always be an odd one. They are just way cooler than even numbers.
  • Music artists: Colbie Cailet, Benton Paul, my little brother Nate, Celine Dion (old favorite), Imagine Dragons.
  • Chores: loading the dishwasher, vacuuming (with my Dyson, of course), making the bed. Trying to stay positive on this one.
  • My family. I could hang out with my hubby and kids all day every day and never get sick of them.
  • Favorite quirk of Bubba's – that his eyes get so squinty when he's tired, that he's AMAZING at pillow talk, his perky bum (is seriously a girl's dream), that he watches reality TV with me and actually enjoys it, and of course, his dance moves that win him $2000 watches.

Those are some of my (random) favorites.

Now it's your turn to teach me about yourself…what are some of YOUR favorites??

    I LOVE PARENTHOOD! My mom told me about a month ago that she saw an episode or two of the new season and it was great, she suggested I watch it. Well I am usually cooped up in my craft room making things for my shop and because I have no TV in here and prefer background noise, I started watching on Netflix. An embarrassingly short amount of time later I finished all the seasons on netflix and watch the most recent episodes on demand. I am now addicted and I actually miss it. Such an amazing show. Its very similar in some ways to Everwood, which was on around 2002.

    Those cups they give you from the hospital after childbirth are THE BEST! I’m still using mine too. My favorite things are dark chocolate Milky Way bars, holding hands with my hubby, driving up a canyon in the summertime with the windows down and music blaring.

    Jordan, we have a lot in common! (And I’m not just saying that… 😉 )
    I absolutely LOVE the food network, and reality TV. not the teen mom kind….the Bachelor kind. Haha, I’m following all of them on Instagram. 🙂 Weird, I know. I love Chopped, LOVE worst cooks in AMerica, and my all-time favorite is Cutthroat Kitchen! I also watch the voice and love love love Parenthood and Chicago Fire / PD. both are awesome because they tie into each other. I screamed (literally) when they said Parenthood was taking a break until after the Olympics. (no offense, USA) 🙂
    Also love sour candy, Colbie Cailet, and the color scheme you mentioned is currently my baby’s whole nursery theme. grey walls, aqua ceiling, and yellow accents. love it!
    I also love hammocks – could swing in one all year long! the beach, music – acoustic types, love acoustic guitar, the box (drum), jimbay drum, piano, and other awesome acoustic sounds. my current favorite songs are “Lord I need you” by Matt Maher, and “Oceans” by Hillsong United.
    Love these A.M.M. posts! 🙂

    I am totally with you on the Dyson–I will never own another brand of vacuum! Another one of my favorite cleaning products is the Kaywos cloth ( I received it as a bridal shower gift and cleaning has not been the same since!). They work amazingly and they are CHEAP! Another would be the first sip of morning coffee…something about it just starts the day off right! 🙂 AND what about a good joke?? Nothing can cure a bad day like a good laugh!

    Lou Malnati’s thin crust pizza
    Swimming in Lake Michigan

    The End
    P.S. I’m going to start watching Parenthood! Thanks

    I personally haven’t tried the Dyson vac but I really like my Miele canister vac for my hardwood floors and upholstery! I love Cheerwine soda, Chinese scallion chicken, Estee Lauder’s Modern Muse cologne for me (when I can get free gifts along with my purchase, of course!), and good old basic Polo cologne for my hubby. I like BBC British comedies like Waiting For God, sipping Twinings English Breakfast tea out of my Downton Abby freebie mug from World Market. I love sipping a margarita on a beach vacation and listening to The Eagles. I love feeding the hummingbirds and photographing them and I have the best hubby in the world who is so thoughtful like brings me breakfast in bed sometimes!
