A Few of My Favorite Things {3}...

My favorite chocolate fix

I have seriously gone through {by myself} at least 5 jars of this stuff since the beginning of June. I bought a jar of it at the beginning of summer...thinking it would be okay, but probably not anything special. OH MY! Was I wrong! This stuff is SUPER delicious...though not really the best for my {not nearly small enough} waistline! I just finished off a jar today, and I think I am going to NOT buy another jar for a while! I need to get back on WW big time...which for me means eating a ton of Special K and apples!

My favorite summer t.v. show

This is a new show that comes on Lifetime. I thought it looked interesting, so I set the DVR to record the first episode a few weeks ago. It is actually pretty good...especially considering it is a Lifetime show and I'm not really a Lifetime kind of girl! This show is helping to fill the t.v. void that the summer has left since everything {and I mean everything} that I like to watch is either in reruns or not even on the air!

My favorite piece of furniture
My china cabinet

I got this china cabinet back in June for my anniversary, but I don't think I ever posted pictures of it! I am still SUPER excited that my wedding china finally has a place {after sitting in the boxes for 7 years}! Just in case you don't remember, Jason and I got this beauty at a Rooms 2 Go Outlet store for less than $400! The only thing wrong with it was a few scratches that a furniture marker took care of easily....and the exact same cabinet was sitting in the regular store with a price tag of $999!

My favorite song
Perfect People by Natalie Grant

Never let 'em see you when you're breaking

Never let 'em see you when you fall

That's how we live and that's how we try

Tell the world you've got it all together

Never let them see what's underneath

Cover it up with a crooked smile

But it only lasts for a little while

[CHORUS:]There's no such thing as perfect people

There's no such thing as a perfect life

So come as you are, broken and scarred

Lift up your heart and be amazed

And be changed by a perfect God

Suddenly it's like a weight is lifted

When you hear the words that you are loved

He knows where you are and where you've been

And you never have to go there again


Who lived and died to give new life

To heal our imperfections

So look up and see love.

Let grace be enough


By a perfect God [5x]

Be changed by a perfect God

Be changed


What are some of your favorite things?

I am not a big fan of Nutella, But i am not a big fan of Chocolate either. But we have tried it on crepes and it is pretty good like that. And I love that song!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things.

OK, sorry. I couldn't help myself.
