A Few of my Favorite Things

April 14, 2012

And these are a few of my favorite things

{Disclaimer: I am not Oprah so I won’t be giving these things away to all of you readers. Also, I have not ever seen The Sound of Music.}

It was 4th grade, I’m pretty sure, when I walked into a classmate’s house and heard Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians’ “What I am” playing on the stereo. Her mom was probably listening to it on record or cassette tape!  It has since been my song y’all. Or, don’t the cool kids call it “my jam”? Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars has lots of gems on it: “Nothing” and “Little Miss S.” are two of my other favorites.

When Harry Met Sally. Both Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan are excellent in this and there are some funny and memorable scenes! It highlights the way women v.s. men view relationships; platonic and otherwise.  Carrie Fisher is great in this, too.  I never get bored of this movie.

Who doesn’t like to eat? Who? Stonewall Kitchen is a Maine-grown and -based company that makes delicious, I repeat delicious, condiments, mixes, marinades, dips, and jams and so on.  This is coming with me to a friend’s birthday get-together tonight: my go-to appetizer to bring to a gathering {I add walnuts}:

Roasted Garlic Onion Jam Pizza

Stationary, for whatever reason, has always appealed to me.  It might be that you write someone to thank them, share the love, make them laugh, wish them a happy birthday or congratulations…it might be that the paper can be so lovely or fun or interesting…I think it’s the combination.  I have a stash of “last one” notecards; of the box where the rest have been used and sent, but I couldn’t bear to use the last one because I loved them so much.


Blooming Mother's Day Card

So I save them to remember.  Someday I want to frame them all and put them on a tucked-away wall. Not to offend, but this one-liner about a frame cluster made me laugh!

What are a few of your favorite things?  Do tell!
