As I was contemplating what to write about today, I decided to let you have a look into the things I like. So I am starting a new series inspired by the Sound of Music Song:
I love food! That’s ironic because for many years after I was diagnosed with Crohn’s there were many foods I couldn’t eat. Since my surgeries I am not limited at all and I do enjoy trying new things. My favorites include Italian, salad with bleu cheese dressing, Mexican, Southern…what can I say except that I just really do enjoy food. I’m not a huge fan of seafood unless it’s deep fried and doesn’t taste fishy. Hubby thinks this is ironic since I grew up in Florida near the beach. One of my 2010 resolutions has been to try new foods that I wouldn’t typically order. This has been a fun project so far.
I shared on an earlier post that my life’s theme song is If You Want Me To by Ginny Owens. I enjoy all kinds of music with my favorites being Praise and Worship as well as the old hymns.
I just love fairy tales and happy endings and I have a confession to make. I collect DVDs and I like to watch the same movies again and again. Hubby is not a fan of watching a movie more than once unless it is Star Trek or Dr. Who. I’m not a fan of either of those. No offense to any Trekkies or Trekkers that may be reading my blog. Is it sad that I know the difference? Anywho, back to the topic at hand, my favorite movies include: Pretty Woman, Gone With the Wind, Driving Miss Daisy, The Princess Diaries, You’ve Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle…notice none of these are recent releases. This would be because I now have small children and unless it’s animated, I don’t get to see it. I did get hubby to take me to see Julie and Julia, which I thoroughly enjoyed and I confess that I own it on DVD and have watched it at least 4 more times. However, it sometimes takes me 3 or 4 days to watch one movie because I usually fall asleep part of the way through.
I used to like tear-jerkers and sometimes I still do, but there are a few that I can’t watch since I have had children. They include: Steel Magnolias, Step-Mom, Jack Frost, movies that involve little kids losing their parents…it’s too much.
Mostly my television is set on the Disney Channel and Nick Jr. when it is on. However, when we aren’t watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or Olivia, I love to watch Food Network. My new favorite show is Parenthood. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. The hubby and I have a date every Tuesday night to watch it together. Other favorites include The Big Bang, 7th Heaven is my all time favorite and I still watch it on DVD as well as The West Wing on DVD.
So these are a few of my favorite things. Stayed tuned for the next installment of My Favorite Things coming soon!
