My Favorite Things

oday Melissa at 320 Sycamore is hosting a "My Favorite Things Party".  How fun is that?  It's like getting to peek into the cupboards and cabinets of your blogging buddies!

So, without further adieu....here are a few of my favorite things:

Diet Pepsi
Seriously, this is my all-time, numero uno, must-have, favorite thing.
I've been drinking Diet Pepsi since I was 16.
Gosh, what I must have done to my insides since then!?

Activia Yogurt
Speaking of insides,  I will describe my affinity for this yogurt in just 2 words:
Yummy.  Regular.
'Nuff said, right?

World Market dishes. 
I received these as a birthday gift in September from my parents.
Looooving them!  My last set was from when I was married...in 1990.
Love the colors, love the dishes!
Thanks Mom and Dad!

Food. Of. The. Gods.
If you don't have access to a Chipotle burritto in your area...
....you have my sympathies.

I love collecting my Buttons.

Bath 'n Body Works Antibacterial Soaps
Proof that you don't have to spend a fortune to have some classy, fragrant hand soap in your home.
These are often on sale for 3 for $10 or less.  Use a coupon, and it's even better.
I would pay just as much for a generic bottle of SoftSoap in the grocery store.
Our family favorite?  Warm Vanilla Sugar

Bare Minerals
This makeup may be a bit pricier than your average drugstore makeup, but it is so very worth it.
This is one of my little splurges that I give to myself.
It really does work just like the infomercials. 
It is so light, covers so evenly, and has even improved the health of my skin.  I recommend the starter kit.  It comes with all you need and even a instructional DVD.
Definitely worth a try.  You can buy online or in stores.  I get mine at Sephora.

OPI Nailpolish in "Cha Ching Cherry"
My fingers and toes have never been happier.
And my husband kinda likes it too!

Lucky Perfume by Jessica Simpson
I smelled it in the store.
I added it to my Christmas wishlist in '08.
Santa was good to me.

Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers
My all-time favorite album CD to listen to from beginning to end.
Yes.  I am a rockin' Mom.
(coming in a close second is Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell)

Good news?  Season 6 will be here in January.
Bad news?  It will be the last season.

Hello, my name is Stephanie, and I am addicted to Reality TV.
Not all of it, just the good stuff.
American Idol.  The Amazing Race.  Survivor.  Project Runway. 
America's Next Top Model.  So You Think You Can Dance? 

Tide-To-Go Instant Stain Remover
It removes stains.  Instantly.
This item is a Cheer Mom must-have.

Pandora Charm Bracelet
My bestie gave me a Pandora for my 40th Birthday.
I am having loads of fun adding beads.
I feel so "la-dee-da" when I wear it.
I love it!

Ferrero Rocher
Never had one?  Uhhh,  you need to get to the store quickly.
Go!  Now!  You won't regret all of the chocolate, hazelnut yumminess.
Your taste buds will thank you for it.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
I can't imagine there is a reader out there that hasn't tried this sponge.
If so?  You must know that they don't call it "magic" for nothin'.

Good and Plenty
Last but not least is my little guilty pleasure.
The Cheer Moms and I could not get through an entire day of
cheerleading competition without it.
Just when the day begins to wear on us,
one of us will break out these licorice babies, and we are good to go!

There you have it.  A list of some of My Favorite Things.  Now head on over to 320 Sycamore and add your own list of Favorite Things.

Come back tomorrow for a really cool Friday Driveby.
Have a great Thursday!
