These are a few of my favorite things

This post is a very random tribute to the material things in my life that bring me great joy:
I want it, I need it, I can't function without it. Starbucks Breakfast Blend brewed fresh each morning by my loving husband with just the right amount of half and half. Heavenly.
This is the only dish soap I can use. My mom uses it too, and it smells like home to me.
A great go-to white wine for any occasion. 2005-2007 have all been very good years :)

This fall I ended my 14 year love/hate relationship with Clinique in favor of Bare Minerals. LOVE IT. I was skeptical of a loose powder foundation at first, but I have seen the light!
My CHI straightener has died a slow, agonizing death over the last year. (It is 4 years old...I hear that's an excellent life span for a CHI.) It has been replaced by the Sedu. The Sedu beats the pants off the CHI any day.

The "Dallas Red" variety of lantana camera; beautiful, native and very drought resistant!
I adore all Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Lavender Vanilla products. I know they say for "sleep", but I use them in the morning too. That might explain the need for the coffee...

I love to travel, but it's expensive. My consolation prize is reading about travel. This magazine is fabulous, and gives me great ideas for saving money. A $10.00 a year subscription lets me spend hours dreaming of future adventures!

Double pan fried noodles from P.F. Changs. I don't eat them often, but they are culinary perfection.
The only piece of technology I own. And really, do I need anything else? I don't think so.
Canon EOS Digital Rebel. We got ours in 2006 and have been snap-happy ever since.
I have more fun checking out what these bad boys pull out of my pores than I should. Don't judge me!

Anyone else up for the challenge of sharing the little things that make you smile?
