I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

A Few Of My Favorite Things




A Few Of My Favorite Things | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

When you're feeling a little blue,
what helps to cheer you up?


Perhaps, you lose yourself in a book,
or call a good friend.
Possibly, you work off your anxieties at the gym, 
or laugh yourself silly watching a funny movie.
It could be that you pour yourself a stiff drink,
eat an entire box of Mallomars, 
and head to the mall to buy ten pairs of shoes.
(Although, I really can't imagine who would do that).


Or maybe, on those days 
when the dog bites,
when the bee stings,
when you're feeling sad,
you simply remember your favorite things...
(sing it with me, now)...
and then you don't feel...so...bad!

Now that I've gone all Julie Andrews on you, 
here are a few of my favorite things.


Traveling the world, reading a best-seller
Days at the beach, and a jar of Nutella
Jelly beans, football, watching birds spread their wings 
These are a few of my favorite things...

Magazines, family, friends, ripe avocados
Baking, and sunsets, Trader Joe's aficionado  
My deck, and my dog, and some animal-print bling
These are a few of my favorite things...

A good cup of coffee, a pair of new shoes
Fall colors, and lighthouses, fireworks, too
Cheese, and Greek pastries; the first signs of spring
These are a few of my favorite things...

  When I gain weight
When the bills come,
When I'm feeling sad...
I simply remember my favorite things, 
And then I don't feel so bad! 


What are some of your favorite things?

  4. Well Amy you have picked some spectular favorite things, some I share. Not trying to sound esoteric but I think my favorite thing in life is laughter for it lifts your spirits and balances your senses to be joyful minded to appreciate all of life's blessings. Fall color's and early Spring is certainly a favorite thing for me too. Great post!

  14. We share a lot of favourites! Beaches, books, shoes, baklava, our dogs.......and that song, which I'll take up to bed with me.
    I've just put an enormous bowl into the fridge filled with 36 pieces of chicken marinating in fig jam and rosemary. I love that recipe - I will be making it all summer. Tomorrow night it's three tables of bridge and dinner. They're going to love it!

    We share many of the same "favorites" but I must tell you that I have NEVER tasted Nutella. And, I'm trying to keep it that way because I know I would love it.

    Thanks for sharing with SYC.
