These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

You know it’s been a rough year when you ask your huband, “What’s been the highlight of our year?” and we subsequently stare at each other in silence for the next fifteen minutes. We finally came up with, “Food trucks?”.  But that’s not to say that there haven’t been joys and highlights from a few of our favorite things. Here are a few things that always bring me a smile.

My favorite . . .

  • Person: Ken
  • Ice cream: Chocolate fudge brownie
  • Musical: Sound of Music. There is no question about this.
  • Movie: My Best Friend’s Wedding — or Tommy Boy if Ken’s around, because I can’t torture him with any movie with the word “Bride” or “Wedding” in the title.
  • Restaurant: Old Hickory Steakhouse in Opryland Hotel
  • Food truck: Riff’s
  • TV Comedy: Modern Family
  • TV reality show: Survivor
  • Music: Chris Tomlin, Meredith Andrews, Steven Curtis Chapman

  • Pasttime: writing, crafting, bargain hunting
  • Song: Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue (Part 2) by Jason Gray; One Less by Matthew West
  • Fruit: Farmer’s market peaches with balsamic vinegar and cajun seasoning (Don’t judge until you’ve tried it.)
  • Drink at Starbucks: grande single skinny raspberry mocha, no whip
  • Thing to do: Attend festivals around Nashville with Ken
  • Food Network stars: Adam Gertler. He may not be much of a cook, but he’s pretty hilarious!
  • City: Portland, OR
  • Beach: Cape San Blas
  • Book: My Utmost for His Highest
  • Sandwich: Bread and Company’s Steeplechase: turkey, blue cheese, green apple, with honey mustard
  • Outfit: tan striped city shorts with a teal square necked t-shirt
  • Olympic sport: ladies figure skating
  • Board game: Balderdash

So, what do you think? What are a few of your favorite things?
