It’s possible I’ve been a tad too serious here for a bit. So today I bring you my totally frivolous “My Favo(u)rite Things” post.
Fave Christmas Album
John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together. Sometimes surprisingly good music mixed in with the hilarious Miss Piggy questioning, “Piggy Pudding?!” Followed by the assurance of, “FIGGY Pudding, made with figs … and bacon.”
Fave Coffee Fixin’
We have a ton of Folgers right now and a refusing to sleep more than 90 minutes at a stretch kiddo. Clearly I need coffee, and this, Chocolate Mint Truffle creamer … yum yum yum.
Fave Christmas Season Movie
Love Actually. With this song kicking my butt and giving me total chills every time.
Yes they doctored her voice – they added breathiness so it was believeable that a 10 year old was actually singing. They actually made her sound LESS good than she sounded originally. Holy Cow! And if Alex could turn out just like Thomas Sangster in this movie, I’d be a lucky, lucky mom.
Wore these Chico’s pants all 10 and a half months of my pregnancy. Wearing them now. Elastic waist, comfy as all geddout, people think I’m dressed up when I wear them. Cue evil laugh! I’m all stealth comfed out!
Fave body product:
Origins A Perfect World – pretty sure it was a regift when I got it a couple years ago. Pricey, but when were in the polar tundra up north it kept me from feeling like a lizard shedding skin. Smells nice too 🙂
Fave Baby Shoe
Hands down – Stride Rite Stage One Prewalkers. I have the Pea Pods for Alex and I’ve only had one come off once and that’s because he stood on it. He also enjoys teething on it so there’s an added bonus!
Tell me about your fave stuff… Let’s be fluffy and fun for a day!!!
Looky! You used a U in favourite!
My favourite pastime – Sleeping
My favourite food – Chocolate
My favourite dinner – Roast Lamb
My favourite smell – Amy, fresh out of the bath
The Other Dawn
I *heart* the muppets, Wondertwin. There’s a new Muppet Christmas album, but it’s a waste compared to the John Denver version.
Favorite tee shirt: Old Navy perfect fit tees, and the v-neck shows off my ta-tas nicely.
Favorite Kitchen Gadget: My Kitchenaid mixer. Sometimes I brainstorm things to bake just so I can be with it.
Favorite baby wash: Plain ol’ Johnson & Johnson’s, since I found out the lavender version could give Jake titties at 8.
We’re listening to the Charlie Brown Christmas over here like crazy. I don’t think the kids have seen the Muppets Christmas, or we’d probably be listening to that, too!
I looove that Christmas song. Good movie, too. But I found the sex stand-in scenes to be a bit awkward when seated next to family members. LOL!
I LOVE “love, actually.” cool list.
Hydes Like Us
I think anything made…with bacon…is my favorite thing. 😉
It’s like Ophra..but witty.
I am going to have to go to Chico’s. My MIL gave me a gift card for my bday..I need to get on that.
Favorite Christmas Song: Santa Baby.. I don’t know that it’s my favorite but it’s the first one that popped into my head.
Favorite Christmas Characters: Heatmiser and Snowmiser from my favorite Christmas TV show: The Year Without A Santa Clause
I’m new to your blog, please feel welcomed to come n visit mine.
If you think Stride Rites are awesome, you should try See Kai Run or Livie & Luca. They look as comfortable as slippers! Okay, I admit it, I’m jealous of my toddler’s shoes.
My favorite body product is Body Butter from the Body Shop. So thick and creamy, which is a dream on my extremely dry skin. My favorite is the brazil nut scent – I seriously want to eat it.
I love, love, love Origins! Great stuff!
I also heart the Muppets and John Denver. Good call there!
Wonderful list. I am filled with Christmas cheer today!
BTW, I’m having a contest at mah blog. Come check it out!
My favorite thing is my grandfather clock that we got while living in Germany! LOVE IT!
I love chocolate and anything soft and fuzzy too!!!
That movie is adorable, I had wondered if that was really her singing or not…thanks for the info!
Love your HURLburt comment!! How funny! I hadn’t thought of that but now I plan to take credit for it! (just kidding)
And I agree about John Denver and the Muppets… there are songs on that record that actually make me cry…
I LOVE the Muppets…
John Denver & the Muppets–favorite Christmas album HANDS DOWN!
did you say coffee?
oh..favourite blog? Yours of course!!!
Great list! I must say, I’ve always been a fan of the Looney Toons Christmas album… AND the Chipmunks! …And I’m running out to try some of that creamer… haven’t seen that one yet!! 🙂
Favorite Christmas Song: “Ding, Fries Are Done!”
Yes, I’m bereft of all tact and completely insenstive and crass, but f’me, that’s funny. John and I sing it every year.
We like to buy Starbucks Christmas Blend at this time of year. It’s pretentious and yummy.
Speaking of expensive creams and whatnot, in the past I’ve been completely addicted to products of this brand: H2O Plus Expensive, and that’s why I don’t buy them anymore. I still have some leftover from my pre-baby days, and use it sparingly. Every single thing I tried from there was EXCELLENT. My favorite is the hydrating facial gel stuff. Super hydrating and NOT GREASY. Magic.
Favorite Food: All of them, dummy.
