These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Here are some things that I'm loving lately:

Country Magazine
I used to see Country Magazine at my Nana and Poppy's house when I was younger and would always look through it. Nana was raised in the country so she liked to look through all of the beautiful pictures. So about a year ago, I decided to subscribe! Their tag line is, "For those who live in or long for the country." It's just a beautiful magazine, and I recently got the fall issue---gorgeous photos!

NeNe on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"
Okay, let me first say that the New York City Housewives are my favorite, but NeNe is hilarious. I seriously laugh out loud at something she says in every episode. I just really like NeNe.

Crystal Light!
I really don't like the taste of water (am I the only one...??), so I have fallen in love with Crystal Light. There's only 5 calories, which is really helping me with my weight loss. I think I've lost about 8 pounds, give or take a few. Yay! I still treat myself to a Gatorade or soda every now and then, but I'm primarily drinking Crystal Light so I don't drink all of my calories. My favorite flavors are Cherry Pomegranate and Raspberry Lemonade.


Houzz.com
I recently discovered this website, where you can look through images and compile an ideabook for your home. I already have a file on my computer and a hard-copy file folder where I put magazine clippings that I like. This site is addicting!


Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes
I just like these girls. Don't really have any impressive reasons, I just like their style and how they present themselves. I'm going to overlook the Scientology thing with Katie, and that Posh was in the Spice Girls {who am I kidding, I liked a few Spice Girls songs once I listened to them about 10 years late---thanks for not letting me listen to them, Mom}. I'd basically like to have lunch with Katie and Victoria, even though I have a feeling they might be a little snobby?



Bath & Body Works Winter Scents
I got a catalog recently highlighting the upcoming Bath & Body Works Winter Collection, but I threw it away before I could write down the fragrances! I'm so frustrated, because I was excited about the names. :( But I believe they're similar to last year's, which included Very Merry Cranberry, Vanilla Bean Noel, and of course Winter Candy Apple. I can't WAIT to buy some! And last but NOT least, it's obvious that I'm loving the best husband and most adorable daughter in the world! Lately, Daddy helped Evy Kate with her sweet potatoes for dinner. They were a hit!



I love all of life's "Favorites."

Have a great evening---

1) I haven't watched any of the RHW Atlanta episodes... but I love NY and OC. I might have to check the ATL out. :)
2) I most definitely don't like water either! Crystal light is my hero in this area - definitely helping in my calorie counting. Raspberry Lemonade is my favorite.
3)I ADORE the Bath & Body works Christmas scents. Over the past few years, I haven't been able to pick a favorite between Winter Candy Apple and Vanilla Bean Noel.
4) Evy is adorable with the sweet potatoes all over her face! Love it =)
(oops, my apologies for an extremely long comment. haha)

Ashley,
I have never even heard of country magazine, but the pictures look beautiful. We live in WV so I think that is about as country as ya can get Ha! Ha! Anywho I think it is so funny you said you loved Posh and Katie cause I love their style also and baby Suri is so cute... Huh... Kelcee has a few outfits like hers... I'm sure I shop for ideas in the tabloids... Crystal lite is the bomb.... lots better than yucky plain water... and EVY is sooo precious covered in sweet potatoes... Good luck getting the stains out of that outfit.... HA! HA! Been there done that....
Summer

I found your blog through Kelly's Korner and just had to laugh when I saw this post! I too love RHWOA (since I live in ATL...I think it's even funnier!) I have fears of my sweet baby's first words being NeNe or "Big Papa" ha! I looooved the episode where NeNe reminded Kim about being "twins" with Shere - too funny! Love your blog!

My grandma subscribes to Country Magazine too, and it does have beautiful pictures.

Personally, I love water - it's practically all I drink - but I know tons of people who are all about the Crystal Light packets. If you aren't a big water drinker, I think they are brilliant!
