These are a few of my favorite things :)

"...when i'm feeling sad, i simply remember my favorite things, and then i don't feel so bad!"
I'm so excited (four more days!) for silas to come home (four more days!).  Even though it's getting closer (four more days!), i'm still missing him like crazy (because it's stilllll fourrrr more days!) an i'm in a bit of a fUnK.  What would make me feel better? You said it, Fraulein Maria! ...MY FAVORITE THINGS :) :) :)

10. Freckles!

"A girl without freckles is like a night without stars..."
The first time i saw the beauty of freckles was on my missions trip to Mexico in 2006.  Some of us teen girls were sitting with the little girls of the Church there.  I was wishing i had paid more attention in my high school Spanish class, when the precious little girl i was sitting by looked up and said "pecas".  I said "QUE?!?" I had no clue what she was talking about! lol Then she started pointing to my face, "pecas". I still looked dazed. She pointed to a freckle on my arm, and then to another while almost chanting "peca, peca..."  DING! The light bulb went on! my freckles :) i had plenty of them! i just smiled at the amazed and curious little girl.  Later, when i told the missionary about what had happened he said that Mexicans don't generally freckle, so they see this rarity as beautiful. Beautiful and Rare... that's me :)

9. Autumn

ahhhhh! the cool breeze, long sleeves, bright leaves, fall festivals :) Autumn is my FAVORITE time of year!

8. Percy <3

Percy is my four year old schnauzer :) I love him so much. He's always so happy to see me, he kisses me when i'm sad and sleeps with me when i'm lonely... He's my baby :)

7. Audrey Hepburn Movies

I am always intrigued by her Characters, grace, and classic beauty :) My favorite Audrey Hepburn movies are, My Fair Lady & Sabrina. 

6. Pregnant Bellies <3

I love to see pregnant women.  I love how each woman looks different with her baby belly :) 
they are so beautiful.

5. I Love Lucy

nothing else can make me laugh so hard :D

4. PINK!

Pink is my favorite color :) I can't help but smile when i'm surrounded by pink.
I believe that your favorite color says a lot about you, this is what mine means: 
Those who choose pink as their favorite color are often calm and sensitive and care about others feelings. Pink lovers are also generally sympathetic and compassionate and dislike controversy of any kind. 
WOWZA! Dead On :D lol

i'm always hunting for a good quote :)
