These are a Few of my Favorite Things

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.

Television Show:

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!


  1. Dude, you forgot to mention a few of your favorite board games...Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit anyone? And please enlighten me, what's the diff between a Trekkie and a Trekker?

  2. I haven't gotten there yet, my dear. Didn't you see the part where I said there would be more posts like this to come? Now you've stolen my thunder! Just kidding!
