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 Musicâ€? stuck in my head. You know, “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittensâ€?. 🙂

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!

  2. 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. 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.

  8. 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.)

  16. 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!

  17. 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 🙂

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  32. 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)
