I sure have missed this little piece of blog land. I thought I would post today about a few of my favorite things. Of course, I started this post of Friday and finished it on Saturday.
I'm like a kid in a candy store when I receive new editions of Southern Living and Coastal Living magazines in my mailbox. My kids laugh at me. I'm okay with that. What's your favorite way to read a magazine? In the Southern Living I like reading the story at the very back by Rick Braggs first. His stories always make me smile! Sometimes I read the story at the back of Coastal Living first, but mostly, I just love thumbing through the pages and dreaming about having another beach house. It's fun to imagine having fun at the beaches or lakes featured on the pages of the magazine.
I love sitting in the living room or on the back porch with Kelvin and drinking a cup of coffee. My favorite everyday coffee is Target's Kona blend. It's very reasonably priced and has a smooth flavor. I never thought I would drink it black, but I've gone to the dark side. ;) I find now that I prefer my java without anything in it.
I'm lovin' my new make-up and skin care, Neal's Yard Remedies. I'm all about natural and organic, and this stuff is great! I feel like I'm in a natural spa somewhere when I use the products.
We found a new little Cajun specialty foods shop in town before Emma's Bayou Bash. They cooked jambalaya for our gumbo cooking team the night before the Bash, and we are their new #1 fans! Our kids are huge fans too. If you're local, you must try UG-LEE's in Baytown on Hwy. 146. They have all sorts of wonderful things to offer. We stopped in today and bought some jambalaya and cream cheese and jalapeño stuffed chicken wrapped in bacon. Kelvin popped in on the grill with a couple of links of boudin this afternoon while we played washers, and we all wondered what the poor folks were eatin', because we were eatin' like kings and queens, y'all! It was SO good.
Speaking of washers, that's another one of my favorite things. It's always a good time to toss some washers or play a round of corn hole.
The last favorite thing for today is sleep. I like it a LOT! I went to bed the past two nights before 9 p.m...pure bliss! Lately, I can't get enough of it. We're not going to worry about resetting our clocks tonight. I'm so glad the kids are off for spring break next week so we can recover from losing an hour.
Sorry for the lack of photos. I finally got a new phone last month, (which I should have included in my favorites list) but I can't figure out how to post pictures from it to my posts. Maybe I'll figure it out soon. I know I need to get out my good camera, but I just don't always have it with me. Anyway, photos to come later. Ta-ta for now.
