a few of my favorite things

last night i was thinking about some of the things that i really love right now and decided to compile this little list. i find it so funny how we go through these patterns of liking certain things for a while and then moving on to something else... just the seasons of life i suppose. so here are a few of my current favorite things:

my cath kidston slippers. i tried searching for a picture of these online and came up with nothing. and trust me, you don't want a picture of mine because they are so worn out! i discovered cath kidston when i was in england last summer. my friends and i took a train to southern england to a super cute beach town called brighton. we explored a bunch of shops and it was there that i found cath kidston. it's kind of like the vera bradley of the UK if that makes any sense. everything is in these soft blues and pinks with really shabby chic floral prints. just lovely! while i was there i picked up a pair of slippers and they are the most amazing thing ever! unfortunately i have worn them out so much and there are holes and tears all over the bottom. i don't know if i'll be able to find a replacement pair. looks like i'll just have to go back to england.

the dr. quinn series. seriously, i cannot get enough of this show. i think i'm already on the 3rd season. i literally watch at least 1 episode almost every night before i go to bed. i don't think i appreciated joe lando as 'sully' nearly as much as i do now at 27. haha! i mean seriously? who doesn't love a man who appears out of nowhere with a tomahawk and a wolf by his side? haha! but seriously, that show was just honest-to-goodness family entertainment that's so hard to come by anymore. i'm so glad this was released to dvd and that i got it for over 50% off on amazon! like a gift from heaven, i tell ya. and ps- it's still on sale.

words with friends. if you have an iphone and aren't playing this then you are totally missing out. it's glorified scrabble that you can play with friends over a few hours, days, even weeks. just play a word when you have time and when it's your turn a handy-dandy little notification lets you know. you can play multiple games at once. i currently have 12 going. haha! it's another one of those things i do at night while i'm watching dr. quinn. man, i love that time of the day!

wege of hanover broken hard sourdough pretzels. i'm pretty sure this is a PA thing cause the pretzels are made in a small town somewhere nearby. oh man i am so obsessed with these though! it's basically thick sourdough pretzels broken into a bunch of pieces. i love anything crunchy and salty so these hit the spot for me! pair it with a coke zero and i am so satisfied. :)

so those are a few of my favorite things right now! let me know what you just can't get enough of right now. maybe you'll get me hooked. haha! :)
