Well, all good things must come to an end. My golden treasure was eventually thrown away as two broken pieces turned into three, and my mom refused to let me leave the house with a headband that was held together with globs of hot glue and scotch tape.
Now, my current favorite things will never compare to the significance of that precious headband. However, here is just a few frivolous favorites:
- Pralinutta- My sister, Jill, introduced this delicious concoction to me. It is basically Nutella, but it only costs $1.99 per jar, and it tastes pretty much the same. Guilty pleasure-eating a big spoonful after dinner for a little dessert. The swirl kind is the best.
2. Anthropolgie dishtowels- First off, what is there not to like about Anthropolgie? My mom gave me the cutest wedding dishtowels from Anthro at one of my wedding showers. Since then, she has been giving me different dishtowels as gifts. The one below is one of my favorites because it looks exactly like Bailey down to the black eye and black lips.
3. The Pink Panther- My favorite adult beverage-champagne and grapefruit juice. I first had this at Boom Boom Room in the Heights. They make their's with pink grapefruit juice. We served this at Meghan and Steven's couples shower with white grapefruit juice, and it is so tasty.
4. Taking walks- The one horrible thing about living in an apartment with a dog is that any time they need to go outside, you're going with them. Although I still hate having to take her out all of the time, I have started to love taking walks after dinner. Bailey's new favorite place to go is on the top floor of our apartment parking garage. While she still has to stay on her leash, she gets to run around like a crazy dog. Plus, you can get a semi-decent view of our part of town.
5. Reggae music- I never, ever thought I would say that I like reggae music, but it is true. Kyle created this awesome playlist of reggae music for our honeymoon, and now I am obsessed. One of my favorite reggae songs: "Love I" by The Green Band.
Now, I just asked Kyle what he thought are my current favorite things. He said the Oprah Winfrey Network and pretending I understand his insurance terminology. So true. Love him... Slightly surprised he didn't say pimento cheese. Haha.
