Friday Favorites

On my first blog, I sometimes used Fridays as a chance to share a little about me and reflect on the week by highlighting a few of my favorite things.  Why not kick off my first post the same way?

So here are some of my favorite things:

1.  Sid-tastic’s smiles.  She’s been super smiley this week, and I love a wide, gummy grin.

2. Pop-tarts, especially brown-sugar cinnamon ones.

3. Mad Men.  I have been powering through the episodes available on netflix.  I tried to watch it a while ago, and I couldn’t get into it.  Now I’m obsessed.  Donald Draper might be one of my all-time favorite characters.

4.  Donald Draper (but not all the time…sometimes I can’t stand him…but when he is good, he’s really good.

5. Peanut M&M’s.  They were on-sale at Kroger’s this week.  Yum.

6. Sixty degree weather in February.  It makes me a little sad that I’m not wearing my boots these days, but I can’t complain about the beautiful weather we’ve been having.

7.  Grandparent visits.  My parents stayed with us collectively for three weeks to help us get under our feet after Sid-tastic came along and watch her while I started back to school and teaching.  The time with them was terrific.

8. Steven Johnson’s Book Where Good Ideas Come From.  A fast and good read.  Had to read it for school, but I recommend it to anyone for pleasure, too.

9.  Kid pictures.  That other people with nice cameras take.  Christi Lopez is amazing.  She’s taken pictures of Riley and Adrian twice.  R and A also had some antique pictures taken at daycare.  They turned out so well!  The kids were super smiley!  My mom had a woman from her hospital take pictures of Sidney over Christmas.  The pictures are beautiful, and they make me so happy.  Now, if only I could put them all up all the time…:)

10. Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  That’s where we’re headed to for dinner tonight.  Best burger on the East Coast.
