Blue Bell Southern Blackberry Cobbler ice cream -  If they could figure out how to heat the cobbler within the ice cream without melting the actual cream, Lord have mercy, it would be HEAVEN ON EARTH.

Shoes – Heels, flats, peep toes, platforms, wedges, sneakers, kitten heels, boots, loafers, sandals, pumps, slippers……I love them all.  Oh and purses….don’t get me started on purses.

Books – I love books.  I am almost always in the middle of three.  One that I’m actually reading 5 minutes before I crash into blissful slumber, one on cd which I listen to on my commute and one on my ipod for mowing and yard work.  It can get confusing sometimes.

Twitter – Have an AHA moment? Got a gripe?  Have a secret?  Something exciting to share.  Twitter is instant gratificationAnd it’s just you and two bazillion of your closest friends.

Turbocharged hand dryers in public restrooms – You know….the ones that almost blow the skin right off your hands.  I just love how fast they are.  I’m totally bummed when I encounter those sorry, old, slow ones now. 

The Dollar Spot at Target – It’s all a bunch of CRAP….and I know that.  But somehow I can’t resist browsing thru that section by the door every time I visit much to MHS’s dismay.  I’m absolutely certain that I’m going to find a real treasure at a dollar of a bargain someday.

Cake pants – I know that I’ve mentioned this a few times before but it’s worth mentioning again.  Life without cake pants (aka yoga pants) is like a day without cake sunshine.

Competition – Whether it’s football, board games, trivia shows or Dancing with the Stars, I just love me some competition.  Someone to root for for whom to root. *wink*  Like Donny Osmond. 

And speaking of Donny Osmond – So what if he’s a goody two shoes.  I say, GOOD.FOR.HIM!  He is a great entertainer (YES.HE.IS!), a wonderful family man, and from such a huge talented family.  You cannot wipe the smile off my face if Donny and or any other Osmond is performing.  AND I’ve loved him since I was eight years old….maybe longer.  If that kicks me out of the cool kids club, so be it.  I happen to know that VodkaMom loves Donny too and she is the QUEEN of the cool kids.

Soooooooooo……..what are some of your favorite things?

Snappy Di said...

I love Donny TOO! He's a super nice guy and a good singer too. YAY DONNY!!


otin said...

I am not on your list of favorite things????? What????? LOL!

jeanmac said...

Great list - I'm a shopaholic - like everything!

Fragrant Liar said...

I have been dying to try a pair of those yoga pants.

Today, I tried my first spanx. Oy. That will not be on my list of fave things.

I do love me some shoes and purses too. The sparklier the better.

My word verification is STORGIR, which seems to me to be short for STORE GIRL. You too?

only a movie said...

I'm with you on the shoes. Also, my laptop seems to be one of my favorite things. All my friends are in it.

Mrsupole said...

I guess if you read my comment from your previous post, you will see that everything is my favorite stuff.

Oh so sick, and cannot get rid of all my stuff, cause it is all my favorites.

I need to get a lot less favorites.

But I have to say that ice cream sound wonderful. Who makes it? Do you know if they sell it here in CA. Now I got a craving. Sigh.

God bless.

Lone Star Queen said...

I like Donny too. I've liked him since I was a young teenager but couldn't admit it because Donny and Marie wern't for the cook kids.

The Peach Tart said...

I can't go in the Target without hitting the $1 section too. I've actually found some cool stuff.

Arkansas Patti said...

Yoga pants huh? Have to check that out.
Love Donnie and all he stands for. Obviously there are millions who agree. That family knows how to entertain without mug shots being part of the family portraits.
Too bad really, really cute and really, really decent are not cool.

Jan said...

I swooned over Donny when I was 9 years old. At 12 or so, he got replaced with Elton John, then I discovered the likes of Led Zepplin and Lynyrd Skynyrd. But Donny? He's still a sweetheart, nearly 40 years later.

midlife slices said...

One of my favorite things is opening my computer and seeing there is a new post from SMB in my reader. Really.

And.....banana taffy
my grands
BOOKS BooKS and more bOOkS
my iPhone
when HBL drives & I don't have to [drive] *wink*
deep restful sleep *oh how I miss you*
Completing a job
A commission check *oh how I miss you2*
Dr. Pepper

o.k. I'll stop since you really didn't ask me to guest post and if this gets any longer, that's exactly with it will be.

Gaston Studio said...

Books is at the top of my list; I panic when I'm halfway thru the one I'm reading before I've gotten another one to begin.

Also love those clearance aisles and like you, am convinced I'll someday find an absolute treasure.

Peanut butter and chocolate cookies with a glass of ice cold milk.

And, don't laugh, but I think Richrd Dreyfuss is so sexy!

Gaston Studio said...

Actually, I think he spells it Richard Dreyfus.

Ashley.SoItGoes said...

My new favorite thing today is that you correct your own grammar too!!

Debbie said...

Great post and I love the way you describe your favorite things in only SM style.:) I happen to like Donny too and I guess I have never admitted that in public...oh shit.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I feel so sad that we don't have that ice cream over here. Cobblers are a favorite of mine.

manker said...

atiredwife said...

Ahhh, back when music was music.

Tony Letts said...

Hit 40 said...

I am with Otin?? Where is he? LMAO!!!

Now I need to twitter!!! Although I feel ok just doing a solo tweet to Otin when I am pissed!!

Theta Mom said...

Can I just tell you that freakin MOVIE is one of my favorite things! Otherwise, good coffee and good wine always do it for me. :)

blueviolet said...

Now wait just a second. Those turbocharged dryers freak me out. I'll give you that they work beautifully. But geez, talk about age awareness. I clearly have no elasticity left in my skin, because the rate of flappage is terrifying!

Donna said...

Jason, as himself said...
