We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

Opening up a brand new jar of peanut butter and taking the first swipe of it with my knife.

Pocket doors. I don't have any pocket doors but I love them.

Going to sleep with the window open and the ceiling fan on.

Salt. The movie and the seasoning.

Mr. And Mrs. Smith. It's on my DVR all the time so whenever I have 5-10 minutes between shows I'm watching I will flip it on.

Spring weather.

Cool spring evenings when a cardigan is all you need.

Chiffon.

Vintage beaded gowns with lace.

Listening to the kids play with their stuffed "Aminals" and hearing the different voices and personalities they give each one.

The original names the kids give their stuffed "Aminals" such as blue bear, big teddy, brown bear, papa bear, sharky, etc..... There is one exception and that is a small blue bear Asa named Tax Credit.


My iPod, iPhone and iPad.

Page protectors.

Binders with page protectors.

Address books. Old school, as in paper address books. I have had the same one for about six years, I call it my master address book.

Personalized stationary.

New kitchen appliances.

Burt's Bees.

Planning trips I'll never take.

Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes.




These are just a few of my favorite things.

I love your favorite things, or the few of them ; )

I love every swipe of peanut butter myself. I don't discriminate.

I like pocket doors too, but what I don't like about them is the lock...it never seems to work properly : /

I've never seen Mr. & Mrs. Smith or Salt, but don't get me started on SALT, because I'll NEVER stop!!

You said cardigan and chiffon...

Tax Credit, how the...what the...that boy!!

Me too - binders, page protectors, stationary, but not personalized : )

I'm going to text you a picture of my address book. I've had it forever and LOVE it!! With the recent iPhone Calendar update, I had to go retro too.

Cereal junkie here ; )

Beya was right. I was wrong. I LOVE this post!
