My Favorite Things

Happy Saturday! I figured I would have a little fun this afternoon and compile a list of my favorite things. I would love it if you all would share your answers, too! And if you come up with more questions, let me know, and I'll do another post.

What's Your Favorite...?

1. Candy
Dark Chocolate all the way!

2. Board Game
I love all board games, but my favorites are Settlers, Bananagrams, Dutch Blitz, and Yahtzee

3. Holiday
Easter

4. Childhood Memory
Vacationing with my family

5. Cereal
It changes all the time, but currently I'm into Whole Wheat Chex

6. Type of Cookie
White chocolate macadamia nut

7. Sport to play

10. Pet
My cockatiel from childhood

11. Clothing Store

  5. Dear Ellie,
    I enjoyed getting to know you a little better. :)
    I LOVE dark chcolate so much. And Root Beer flavored bottle caps are my favorite clave of bottle caps. Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods, and I enjoy shopping at consignment and thrift stores. I do not like shopping in malls. Dutch Blitz is one of my favorite games as well. And I can't forget about vacationing. I love going on vacations!
    I hope you have a very joyful day in the Lord.
    Blessings in Christ,

    I am really interested in what your favorite movies are. We are totally on the same page about 1,2,11, and 12. I have never been to Maurice's though, perhaps I'll have to check it out.

    1. You should definitely check out Maurice's. It can sometimes be hit or miss, but at the end of the season, their clearance rack has great shirts.

    Pancake lovers unite! Any particular kind of pancake that you love? My mom almost never would make them when I was little, but my absolute favorite was chocolate chip. Now I'm a little healthier and prefer pancakes with fresh strawberries on top. :)

    Thanks for sharing more about yourself! I always enjoy reading these kinds of posts. :) I'd love to hear where your favorite kind of vacation spot is (at the beach? the mountains? at home? etc.). And repeating what a previous commenter said, what are your favorite books? (This one may be a little selfish on my part, I'm always looking for new titles to read!)

    Best, Allie

    1. Hi Allie,

      That's a good question. I also used to like chocolate chip pancakes, but now I do prefer fresh fruit on them.

      I'm working on a second post, and I will use some of your ideas. :)

What are your favorite food products? What do you like to do for relaxation? What is your favorite flower and do you like gardening? Do you watch all of the Duggars and Bates TV shows?

    1. Those are great ideas! I will use them in my second post, which I'm working on now. I have watched every single one of the Duggar and Bates TV shows. LOL. I guess it's sort of a requirement. I haven't done too much gardening, but I would love to have a vegetable garden in the near future. Do you garden?
