If you have ever seen Sound of Music, you will know the wonderful song that Maria sings to the children in the storm. I was thinking about that movie the other day and I would like to share with you a few of my favorite things.

1 – The mini watercolor paintings from my mom. She is a wonderful painter and I get a few paintings every month and I love to display them on my fridge. This pumpkin painting is one of my favorites. 

2 – Coffee in my “You are loved” mug. This is one of the first gifts that Paul gave to me while we were dating. Using it reminds me of those early years. :] 

3 – My iPod shuffle {so tiny and pink}. This thing gets me through long days in lab and helps me sleep. I am addicted to listening to audiobooks. 

4 – L'occitane hand cream. My hands get pretty beat up and I love this creamy and luxurious hand lotion. It’s the little things in life. I don’t often splurge on beauty products, but a good hand cream is essential. 

5 – CHAP STICK. I will be the first to admit it; I am addicted to chap stick. The blue one with SPF is my favorite. You can easily find 5 tubes laying around my place and in my purse. I cannot stand it when my lips get chapped so I want a tube within arms reach at all times. 

6 – My Tiffany & Co key hole necklace. Paul gave this to me for our first wedding anniversary. It goes with everything and I rarely take it off. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to jewelry. 

7 – My time turner key chain that I got at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter on my honeymoon. I absolutely love Harry Potter {one of my nicknames is Hermione}. I cannot wait for the park to be finished at Universal Studios in Hollywood!

What are a few of your favorite things? 

P.S. I’m obsessed with this app that allows me to doodle on photos. You will probably see way too many photo edits using this app hehe.
