Tag #2 Favorite Things

My good friend, Amy, tagged me on this one! This was fun, thanks Amy!

Whenever Oprah does her ‘Favorite Things’ show, I am always curious about the things she chooses and why. The best part of her ‘Favorite Things’ show is that she shares them with others! Well, the other day I thought to myself, “I don’t have to be Oprah to have ‘Favorite Things’. I started to think about the day to day things that I have or use that bring me some form of enjoyment. I thought it would be interesting to find out the ‘Favorite Things’ of my friends and family too. So here it goes…If money were not an issue and you wanted to load up a basket of your most ‘Favorite Things’ and give it to your friends, what would you choose and why? During your day to day life, are there things that you use each day that make you smile or feel good? Is there something that you look forward to everyday? It can be something simple, like the type of pen you use or something big like the type of car you drive. I will list my ‘Things’ and then I will tag a few of you to do the same thing. Here they are in no particular order...
I love water & the convenience of water bottles. I love this Vita Splash drink mix. It is light, refreshing & very tasty. It has 5 grams of natural fiber. 5 grams!!!!! I keep little packets everywhere: my scrapbook bag, the diaper bag, the car, kitchen cupboards etc... It makes drinking water taste even better.

I love my ipod Nano. I love how small & portable it is. I can tote it around with me as I shop, exercise, or scrapbook. I love that I can have all sorts of music loaded on my ipod & shuffle the songs so I can listen to whatever I am in the mood for.

I am not a professional photographer in any way, shape or form... but I love my Canon digital camera. I love to take lots of photos & I love how I can delete the bad ones with a push of a button. I love that I don't have to pay to develop bad pictures. Did I mention that I love to take pictures - WINK. It is a fun hobby that goes hand in hand with my scrapbooking.

For those of you who know me really well, you know I like to clean. I am always buying different cleaning products to try. A clean kitchen sink is a MUST. I clean my sink with SOFT SCRUB GEL with BLEACH (the bottle on the left in picture). It takes those grey marks (that pots & pans leave on my sink) right off without having to scrub too hard.

I love scrapbook magazines. You can usually find a pile on my nightstand & many piles in my scrapbook room. I love the page ideas, the colors & the adds advertising new product. My current favorite scrapbook magazine is SCRAPBOOK TRENDS. Lots of cute stuff in their magazine!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Aromatherapy spray from Bath & Body. My sister in law Petra introduced me to this to me years ago. My favorite scent is the Lavender Vanilla Pillow mist. I spray it on my pillow each night before crawling into bed. It is very light smelling. It is so yummy & it is making me want to crawl into bed right now just talking about it. If my boys spend the night somewhere (Grandma's or friends), they will ask me to spray their pillows.
**One more favorite thing(I could not find it online,hence no picture) that I LOVE is Mint Lemonade flavored Lip Balm from Old Navy. It is yummy & makes your lips tingle. They display/sell it up @ the check out counters. It sells for $3.50 a tube! Very affordable & worth every penny. Again-I LOVE - LOVE - LOVE this stuff. Run, don't walk to OLD NAVY.
I am tagging Annie P., Lisa H., HolleAnn, Camie, & Laurie! I can't wait to read your answers!
