I simply remember my favorite things....

and then I don't feel so bad!
It has been kind of a stinky week... for various reasons. But last night it all was worth it.
My sister Jill told me about the fabulous idea of having a Favorite Things party. So I had one. Last night. And it was fabulous!

Jenica LOVES hot chocolate. She drinks it everyday.

Caroline LOVES to drink water in fun glasses. So we got a fun glass with cute limes inside. So fun.

Sundee LOVES to come home from work, take off her shoes on put on warm, fuzzy socks. They are so soft.

Jen had a sister missionary sleepover in the MTC
where they ate apple juice and popcorn and
since then it has been her favorite combination.

Michelle LOVES to go to her bedroom after work, lighting a yummy smelling candle and relaxing. I need to light mine and do some relaxing. real soon.

Elaine LOVES smoothies from Robeks. It was delicious.

Tiana LOVES things that make life easier. Things like this fabulous grater from IKEA. I am so excited... I bought one of these awhile ago but didn't want to use it while I have roommates that might ruin it, so there is sits under my bed at my parents house. But now I can grate my heart out!

Courtney apparently was confused about the whole thing and brought 8 different favorite things. But it was fun to see them all. We decided to do it "white elephant" style where one person picks something and the next person can take that thing or a new one. I got to go first and picked a cute children's book but then it got stolen from me. But I ended up with these fun socks.

I will post a picture of what I gave soon. I just needed to get this posted and it seemed to take forever as it would only let me download a few pictures at a time.

I think everyone needs to have one of these parties. It was so fun to just have a girls night. We laughed soo much and soo hard. I realized that I talk too much. If I don't get my daily quota of talking in, I tend to get verbal diarrhea. I haven't had a good conversation with someone in person in a REALLY long time. So thanks girls. (even though I don't think any of them read this!)
