My Favorite Things

I turn 30 years old in less than a month. I'm over the moon excited to celebrate birthday month for all of May. To kick it off (even though it isn't quite May yet), I'm sharing a list of 30 of my favorite things. Feel free to send one of everything for my birthday.

1. Brunch. Eggs, french toast, bloody mary's, pancakes, mimosas and fresh fruit.
2. Seasons - all four of them for different reasons.
3. Playoff Hockey. GO RANGERS!
4. Starbucks You Are Here mugs.
5. Clean sheets and new pillows.

6. Candles.
7. Skinny jeans - they are comfortable and I'm so glad they are a thing.
8. My library card.
9. Toms shoes - I have multiple pairs but they are so comfortable.
10. Instagram. It's my favorite social media site because I love looking at pictures.
11. Fruity beer. Watermelon, Grapefruit, Strawberry. I love them all. Also, Wine & Sangria.

12. Celery with Peanut Butter.
13. Musicals - movies & Broadway. Newsies will always be my favorite.
14. Dresses. Maxi dresses, sun dresses, fancy dresses.
15. Memoirs. I love reading real stories of other people.
16. Lush Bath Bombs.

17. Green smoothies. I love spinach mixed with fruit every day.
18. Really soft t-shirts. If they have a clever saying on the front, they are even better.
19. The best blanket in the whole world.
20. Pizza. Every damn kind (unless there's meat.)

21. Method cleaning products and soap. I love the smells of all of them.
22. Bravo.
23. Scarves. I can't have enough of them.
24. Mail. I love sending mail and getting mail. Postcards, letters, packages.
25. Netflix. What an amazing creation. How else could I have seen Gilmore Girls from beginning to end?
26. Cheese on everything. All kinds of cheese. Goat cheese is my current favorite.
27. Sunglasses and sunscreen. I couldn't handle the summer without them.

28. Sweatpants and sweatshirts and all things comfortable.
29. Doughnuts. The plain ones, the sprinkled ones and the fancy ones.
30. Planners and lists. They make me productive and happy.

Oh how I love a list. Tell me a few of your favorite things.
