These are a few of my favorite things

Although cream-colored ponies are lovely, they’re not one of my favorite things. But these are:

1. Getting the first scoop out of the peanut butter jar

2. Sitting in a dark movie theatre, eating popcorn drenched in butter, watching the previews

3. Baby laughter

4. Hills ablaze with autumn leaves

5. Feeling tired and sandy and sunburny after a whole day at the beach

6. Antique clock chimes

7. Bedsheets tucked in very tightly

8. Reexamining my purchases after a shopping trip.

9. The smell of pavement during summer rain

10. Chirping birds

11.The excitement of going to the airport

12. Polka dots

13. Bracelets jangling on my wrist

14. Watching my children help each other

15. The first sip from a can of ice-cold Mtn. Dew

16. Finding a great new restaurant

17. Creaky sailboats

18. Surprises

19. Laughing so hard that I can’t breathe

20. Schnitzel with noodles (spaetzle, to be exact)

What about you? Do you like girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes?

  1. That is a great list of favorite things. I really like the smell of freshly cut grass, and watermelon. I do have to admit that girls in white dresses are cute, but not on my favorite list.

  2. Nice favorites, Jennie! Except why not just call the sheets just that? My husband calls them bedsheets too and I think it sounds odd. It’s late and I’m ’bout to head for the bed…with sheets. lol

  3. I love lots of your list… Some of my favorites are 5, 9, 11, 14, 18, 19… I will do this sometime this weekend.

  4. It’s funny, I have never thought about a lot of the things in that song, and some of them are kind of strange! Like the girls in white dresses. I mean, cute for sure. But who would put that on their list of favorite things? I guess Maria would. Or Hammerstein, at least.
