A Few of My Favorite Things...

In my family, it is tradition to watch Sound of Music around Christmas time. I think this is the first year I've actually enjoyed watching the four hour movie. Usually, I'm playing Monopoly (and getting killed) by dad. He wouldn't play this year, so I watched. Naturally, this movie leads me to reflect on a few of my favorite things...
My wonderful, beautiful, and entertaining roommates...

Family...
Summer Family--EFY Team. That's love right there.
If you know me, you definately know this is one of my absolute FAVORITE things... I LOVE Remember the Titans

I love Wendy. I love this picture of Wendy. And I love the road trip we took when this picture of Wendy was taken.
I love my old house. So many memories... (unfortunately tons of them took place while mowing this lawn)
Old High School Friends...
My best friend, Coralie, and her cute son, Jaden. I just love him.
My Family (and BYU)

Charlie the Civic

Checking things off to-do lists. I always create my own boxes so I can check them off. It's true.
My beautiful EFY girls...The temple (this is the Orlando Temple, my childhood favorite)
Jan, she's going on a mission to OrlandoMy Savior. I love this picture.
MRW. I do not love this picture. Flashback to freshman year...
The sun. Especially the Hawaii sun.
Kristen and our Hawaii trip :)

Cream cheese. Delish.

Of course, I have a ton more Favorite Things but the song can only fit so many. Now go through and put all of these to music. Practice until you get it right. Then memorize it, record it, and sing it to me next time you see me (preferably on top of a green mountain top with seven children following you. Oh, and see if Julie Andrews is around).

Ok...don't really do that. Unless you really want to impress me. ;)

What if instead of singing it on a green mountain top with seven children we sing it in a big bed during a thunderstorm?

I love this post! And you. So, as it turns out, when you have an IV, they pump you up with about 60 pounds of fluid (which is really awesome for the post-delivery pictures...:) ), so I am pretty sure that there was a net GAIN of several pounds during the whole process. Darn, it. But, I have been losing consistently a couple of pounds a day- so that is encouraging. I'll probably come by school early next week to pick up the rest of my personal stuff-- I'll let you know so we can bump into each other!

I love making to-do lists, too. I don't make boxes though - I make little circles. I switch between filling them in when something is done and making a check through them...depending on my mood.
