A Few of My Favorite Things

My new friend Amy did this over on her blog, and I thought it was a cute idea! Kind of a random picture story of things I like. So here are a few of my favorite things today:

Have you seen the post on my book blog about this book? I loved this book. I just got done reading the ending again (for like the third time this week) and it's just as good the third time around, as it was the first. It's in the same category as Twilight, and I would have to say... I liked Shiver better. Blasphemy! I know. I love Twilight, so that just goes to show you how awesome this book is. Check it out from the library (or even better, buy it cause you know you're going to want to read it over and over again!) and take a look.

Apparently my skin hasn't gotten the message that I'm not a teeanger anymore, and it can be normal now. Ugghh.. so frustrating! I've been using this for the last three years, and it works great. It's not perfect, and it's a bit pricey, but when I can't go to the dermatologist for perscription medication, this works in a pinch. And I'd rather use this and have my skin be semi-normal than the awfulness it is without it. Plus, they just came out with a new body wash and it's fantastic!

I love pumpkins. I actually bought one this year at Wal-Mart (who knew they were so cheap?) and put it right outside my front door. And then someone stole it! I was so upset. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Not because I like the scary aspect of it, but because of the cuteness factor. And of course, we can finally buy pumpkins.

I am totally in love with this movie. Mostly because it has Ryan Reynolds in it (who is soooooo dreamy), but it's also  really cute story. Have you seen it? Did you like it? Plus it also has Isla Fisher who is pretty adorable.

I've been doing this work out for the last two weeks and it's awesome! I've lost four lbs already. I love it because I can roll out of my bed and stroll into my living room and work out. It's like having a personal trainer come to my home. The workouts are really good. Best I've ever had! It's about $120 to buy the set, but it's totally worth it (or you can find someone who already has it and burn it from them.. which is what I did). If you're interested, go to http://www.beachbody.com/

This is absolutely my favorite store ever! I love it because it's simple. I'm not a style guru, and sometimes have a hard time dressing myself. I can go into this store and everything goes with everything else in the store. And black and white will never go out of style! So every piece I buy will last and will always look stylish. Alas, it's quite expensive. Someday I will be able to shop in the actual store and not just on the clearance racks!

Okay, I couldn't get the picture any bigger. That's what I get for saving pics off the web. While Jared was gone in Iraq, he bought me this Dell lap top so that we could talk to eachother through IM and web cam. Believe it or not.. it's red! It makes me happy every time I look at it.

*sighs* Can't we all just be thin like that? If only. I was introduced to these Downeast Basic Wonder Tee's by my in-laws. Being LDS we have certain clothing guidelines. Basically, I try to be modest. And these Tee's are a huge help! They are cap sleeved and I use them as undershirts. That way I can still wear my regular ol' shirts, and everything is covered. If you are LDS and outside of the state of Utah, I highly suggest these. They're amazing and definitely expand your wardrobe! I can't live without them, and wear them everyday. They come in a variety of colors and are only $10 bucks! Go here for more info: http://www.downeastoutfitters.com/.

And that's all I can think of right now. I'm off to go do laundry, clean the bathrooms and get my hair cut.. yay! Later today I'm going dress shopping. What does one wear to her dad's second wedding, where she hasn't seen or spoke to him in a year and hasn't yet met the woman he's marrying? I'm drawing a blank.

I'm sure you'll great in anything! Good luck dress shopping.... I hate shopping for clothes. Thanks for all the tips. I am a huge Downeast fan for sure! Also, I was looking for a good book to read, thank you for helping me with that!

Love this post! I used to do posts like this and stopped for some reason, maybe I will try it again.

SO I am totally gonna get that book now. Glad you love Ryan Reynolds too!! :) Girl, my skin hasn't gotten the message either and it's so depressing!! Glad you can use PA, I can't, my skin is too sensitive. :( And thanks for the advice on the tee's when we were in Utah...we love then in Cali now!! :)

I'll have to get Shiver...I'm crazy about reading and I'm always looking for new things to read. And I love those T-shirts, too. Great for modesty! Thanks for sharing...I love learning more about people whose blogs I read.

Those are some fun things! Don't know if you already knew this, but there are even more modest clothing websites and stores if you want to look into them. shadeclothing.com and themodbod.com I like to get my swimsuits from these guys too. :)
