Birthday Post: 31 Favorite Things + a $31 Amazon GIVEAWAY!


Today I turn


Ooh- that last one hurts.

Since I'm not a huge fan of odd numbers, and since 31 seems like a generally uneventful age (I felt the same way about 29 and 26... although at least 26 was even and still "mid-twenties"), I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite things with y'all and do a little giveaway- because who doesn't love winning things?!

This list of favorites spans a lot of years- 31 to be exact.

Some of them are all-time favorites, and some are more recent.

If you're new around here, consider this a getting-to-know-me list... a little peek into the quirkiness that is- me.

And maybe you'll even find a thing or two that you need to try for yourself!




1. Book- Same Kind of Different as Me (although For the Love may beat this by the time I’m through!)
2. Movie- Dirty Dancing or Pretty Woman
3. Song- Bryan Adams’ "Summer of ‘69"
4. TV Series- Friday Night Lights & Parenthood
5. Adult Beverage- Red wine or a margarita on the rocks
6. Kid Beverage- Yoo-Hoo
7. Face Product- Clarisonic Mia 2
8. Cleaning Product- Roomba for Pets
9. Baby Product- Solly Baby Wrap
10. Place to Buy Clothes- Loft, BR Factory, J.Crew Factory
11. Candle- Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint
12. Me-Time Activity: Bath & a book or Cooking with a glass of wine & pandora
13. Date Night- Cooking class or exploring a new place
14. Family Time Activity- Playing in the backyard or hiking
15. Music- Country or 80s-90s
16. Food- Pasta anything
17. City- London (I need to share this post one day!)
18. Flying Vacation- Our Honeymoon & Turks and Caicos Trip
19. Driving Vacation- The Inn at Palmetto Bluff
21. Starbucks Coffee- Cinnamon Dolce Latte
22. Form of Exercise- Pilates
23. Ice-cream- Mayfield Moosetracks
24. Board Game- Scrabble
25. Game Show- Wheel of Fortune
26. Piece of Jewelry- My “R” Necklace from here
27. Season- Fall
28. Holiday- Christmas
29. Sport to Watch- Football & Tennis
30. Sport to Play- Tennis
31. Verse- Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.”

And now for the giveaway!


I didn't work this into my list, but I buy just about everything on Amazon these days. Why drive to a store when what I need can be at my doorstep in two days or less?!

So in honor of the big 3-1, today I'm giving away a $31 gift card to Amazon.
