It's been a while since I've done one of these posts - and I feel like bloggin'. So here we go! The following is a list of some of my current favorite things (in no particular order)
Oh my. This book. This movie. LOVED them both. So good. Read it then watch it. You'll love it and want to read it and watch it all over again. Good stuff!
You see things that you love online - and you can pin them onto different boards that you create. For example, say I want to find some recipes. So I create a board for recipes. Every time I find a recipe online, I can pin it to me recipe board. Boom! Now I'll always be able to find it! And what's so fun is that other people can look on your boards, and pin your pins to their boards and vice versa! It's so much fun I can't even stand it (my voice is getting high pitched just TYPING this - lucky for you I'm not telling you about it in person).
Find me on Pinterest (hey look, there I am!) - it's easy, you'll love it. Just do it. (my name is Heidi Goble)
CrochetingI'm hooked. Hahahaha, see what I did there? Hooked? ((sigh)) I think I'm funny - no one ever thinks I'm funny, but I think I'm so funny. So crocheting. I taught myself how to do it through Pinterest and YouTube videos and I'm addicted. So much fun! I even crocheted this cute little cowl scarf - isn't it adorb? Love it!
(The one on the right, that's my Iranian peasant girl look. And no, that's not bad back lighting on the pictures - that's just my angelic glow. )
Truthfully I have mixed feelings on this one. I've had Invisalign since July. I want straight teeth, but hey. It's orthodontics. How much fun can it really be? But I'll be happy when I'm done, I'm sure. But, in the meantime, be a friend and if you see me with food stuck between my teeth and my Invisalign trays, don't point and laugh (like my husband does) - just point me in the direction of the nearest restroom.
Password Photo FrameOh.My.Word. I could spend 3 days talking about how much I love this little invention. I found it on my new favorite blog Sew Many Ways. I don't know about you - but I have a LOT of things that require passwords and I can never keep them all straight. I'm forever have to get my password emailed to me - it drives me NUTS. Enter the Password Photo Frame.
It's a .99 cent frame from Ikea - it's dual sided. One side is a cute little picture of me and my guy (oooh, isn't he cute?) and on the back, I've typed out all my usernames and password clues! Note in the example I didn't give out any names and passwords - I just said sample, sample, sample. I love to share - but I have to draw the line somewhere. Also - on my actual list, I didn't put in the passwords, I just put in a clue that will prompt me to remember the password. I can't tell you how often I look at this crazy thing!
Thank you again to Sew Many Ways! (I'm telling you, this woman is brilliant).
Downton Abbey((Dramatic Sigh..... ))
There aren't enough ways to say how much I love this show. It's practically perfect in every way. It's on on Sunday nights at 9:00 PM on PBS. Of course I have to watch it on a different night because I won't watch it when my husband is in the house. He claims to despise it - but methinks he protests a bit too vehemently. Trying to cover up a secret appreciation for the show. Quite Right! Anyway... After it airs each week, they show the episodes on the PBS website. Season 1 is streaming on Netflix right now. If you love Jane Austin, you will absolutely adore Downton Abbey.
People MagazineTruthfully, this has ALWAYS been a fave of mine. It's brain candy, it's fun AND it helps you make small talk with people (who doesn't love talkin' celebrity gossip?!). I'm particularly smitten with it right now because I just a a subscription for Christmas - yay! A magazine AND mail! Win win!
Well, I think that's enough for now... I could go on and on but I've probably lost most of you at this point. I'm off to find more favorite things! (cue the Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens....)
