Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen of my Favorite Things

Thanks to Mood Swing Creations for the banner!

I have that Julie Andrews song from “The Sound of Music� stuck in my head. You know, “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens�. :)

Here’s some of my favorite things, with no particular rhyme, reason, order or theme!

1. Chinese food
2. Having coffee at my favorite coffee shop
3. Towels, fresh from the dryer
4. Chocolate anything
5. Bookstores
6. Curled up by the fireplace in winter, reading a good book
7. Chick Flicks
8. Going to football games with Tim
9. Yankee Candles
10. Puppies
11. Seeing a falling star
12. Popcorn at the movies
13. Blogging!

  1. christen Said,

    all those are great things (well, i don’t know tim but i do like football).

    i’ve posted 13 also at

  2. Lisa Said,

    Your list hits everything I like, except I don’t know Tim! Thanks for the list.


  3. Red Said,

    I agree with most of yours, and I would also add clean sheets and cats sleeping in a pool of sunlight! Oh, and music.

  4. Debi Said,

    Ah, yes, a lot of these are my favorites too - particularly coffee, bookstores, and blogging.

  5. Raggedy Said,

    I liked your list.
    My TT is up too

  6. Gail Said,

    Well sis, we would have most of the same ones, chocolate being high on mine & you started me on this addiction of Yankee candles! Ooh, crisp, clean sheets is a good one too! Good list.

  7. carmen Said,

    mmm. the smell of fresh towels. :)

  8. Susie Said,

    1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 - agreed! And I’m sure I would enjoy going to a football game with Tim, too, but I’ll just take your word on it. ;)

  9. MamaDuck Said,

    Oh, lots of my favorite things on here too, I’m going for Chinese later today in fact.

  10. Trinity13 Said,

    Hmmmm, I love warm towels!!! It’s so nice to be surprised by one when I get out of the shower.

  11. Lisa Said,

    heheh This one required a bit more thought than “things on your desk” so I enjoyed it. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my 13.

    Here’s my luvvies:

    (I love hockey, books, hot hot hot coffee, my kitty cats purring, looking at the birdies outside my window, listening to books on tape while driving, my husband’s hugs, my neighbor Emma, my ipod, journaling, blogging, singing to my cats and my angel goddaughter Lauren.)

  12. Krystyn Said,

    I SO love bookstores and Chick flicks too!! Great list!

  13. Lisa Said,

    Talk about hitting the nail on the head. I love chinese food, and what is it about popcorn at the theater? Its just sooooo good. Thanks so much for sharing.

  14. EmilyRoseJewel Said,

    Blogging is a great thing! This list is quite eccletic! Different things here. I love chic flicks and football too! No big on Chinese, but love all things chocolate. Bookstores are great and get me into trouble! My list is up!

  22. Pilot Mom Said,

    We do have similar interests! I love popcorn at the movies and towels fresh from the dryer. Sometimes when my hubby is showering I’ll throw his towel in the dryer so it’s nice and warm when he’s ready for it! I thought about buying a towel warmer for our bathroom. It’s an idea! :)

    I’m going to peek around and get to know you better! :)

    Blessings on your day!

  23. Meredith Said,

    LOVE chinese food!!!

    LOVE this list! I love to read these things!!!

  24. Jen Said,

    Movie popcorn is a big thing in my family of origin. We’d actually talk our way into theaters JUST to buy popcorn and then turn around and leave with it. Mmmm! There’s nothing like movie theater popcorn!

    Thanks for stopping by :-)

  25. colleen Said,

    I like when I see a bluebird of happiness!

  42. Kathy Said,

    Hi Stacy, Thanks for stopping in at A Particularly Persistent Point of View and thanks for the compliment about my first TT. I enjoyed doing it.

    I like all the same things you listed. I’d only change one; ie, # 8. Mine would read Red Sox instead of football and Oz instead of Tim.

  43. Christine Said,

    Oh, I miss fireplaces. We don’t have one in our house, but my parents had one in their house. My dad would light the fire almost every night in the winter and I would sit in front of it and read my book. Sometimes we made smores in the fireplace. Good times.

  44. Fida Said,


    Good list… happy T13

  45. Kailani Said,

    I love the popcorn they sell at movie theaters. I keep eating them until my stomach hurts. I don’t know why I do that. Thanks for stopping by!

  46. KarenW Said,

    I love all of those things! Except maybe popcorn at the movies. It gets stuck in my teeth.

  47. mamichelle Said,

    Wow, you got a lot of comments on that list! It’s a great one.

    That is a great list! I love all those things too! Thanks for sharing your favorites!
    Thanks for visiting my TT!

  49. Kate Said,

    Great 13. I love all of those things too. Yankee Candles are awesome. I live near the factory and I’m ashamed to say that I drive by but I’ve only been in once. I go to the store in the mall instead. (bad me)

    Have a great weekend!!!!

  50. Nancy Said,

    I love books and anything about them. And, with a nice piece of chocolate and a good cup of coffee…..hmmmmmheaven!
