Five Favorites - Plus One for the Bird

I don't know about you but I love sharing my favorite things with friends, introducing them to fun stuff I've recently discovered and fallen in love with.

Here are five things I'm loving right now:

1.  The Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny.  
Good clean mysteries.  I am totally and completely captivated by these books.

2.  My Erin Condren Life Planner.
Seeing this happy little spiral in my purse just makes me smile.  And Ryan is happy because I'm actually using a calendar!

3.  These free printable to-do lists. 
Tsh Oxenreider over at Simple Mom calls them Pocket Dockets.

4.  Ball Plastic Freezer Jars.
Perfect for smoothies.  Just fill and freeze.  Set out to thaw and in the morning, just grab and go.

5.  Vanilla Bean Soy Candles from Target.
This picture shows a jar candle but I buy mine in a big lidded tin.  Inexpensive, smells good, and burns clean.

Wouldn't it be fun to pack up a few of your favorite things like this....

and bless a friend for no reason at all?  I know I wouldn't say no to a bag of goodies.

Got some favorites of your own?  Some goodies that make you happy?  Well, by all means, tell me about them.  I want to know!

At the moment, one of the Bird's favorite things to do is play outside.  She comes in from school and goes straight to the backyard.  Right now, that kid is all over a good playground.  And with this beautiful Austin weather, I'm sure we'll be able to indulge her new favorite activity a time or two this weekend.

Hope you get a chance to enjoy some of your favorite things, too.

See you Tuesday!


  1. What a fun post!
    I'm not generally a fiction reader, but after looking at goodread (great site)I might give it a try.

    I got the email that my Erin Condren planner shipped yesterday -- Can hardly wait for it to get here!!! (it's the little things)

    I totally heart the favorite things idea and think we should totally plan a favorite things gathering!!! (one of mine is absolutely Burt's Bees chapstick - almost an addiction if I'm honest!) the rest I'll save for now ;)

  2. I love the Favorite Things idea. Perfect for an unexpected gift for all occasions. Printed off the tags today! Thanks for information. I enjoy giving out little gifts to people who might stay with us overnite, friends, and just as an encouragement to let someone know they are being thought of. This is a perfect little idea to do that with! :)
