These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things



THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Y'all ready for round 2? Good! I had a hard time picking 5 things this week. I just like so many things! Which, I guess is good because I'll always have something to say. :)


1. Coconut Chicken Curry


I'm not kidding, I could eat this EVERY day and not get tired of it. A big thank you goes out to Rachel for introducing me to Indian food. And getting me addicted. Helloooo Naan! Anyone want the recipe? Let me know and I'll email it to you! You won't regret it.


2. BRACHS GUMMY BEARS

It has to be Brachs, though. At walmart they sell these tubs of mini gummy bears. So cute! You almost feel bad for eating them. ALMOST. They are perfect snack size for Kate, and some days it is the ONLY thing that gets us through Sacrament Meeting sane. And they are so good! I even like them better than Haribo, and that's saying something.


3. VICTORIAS SECRET BRAS.




My friend Julie introduced me to these about 6 years ago when we lived in Golden. I had never even had a "lined" bra before...or an underwire...or anything with any form of shape or anything. I had NO idea what a good bra was, or what a difference it made. I was always too scared to step into Victorias Secret...only hot supermodels shop there. But I'm telling you, you FEEL like a hot super model with a good bra. It lifts, supports, shapes...it makes all the difference in the world (especially when your mamas aren't quite as perky as they were before 3 kids... *cough cough*) and I will never go back to any other bra. Victorias Secret is DA BOMB and they know how to make girls happy. Getting the perfect fit is oh so important. I was way off from what I thought I was! Who knew I wasn't a tripple J? (I kid, I kid.) So go get sized and get a good bra. :) Ooh!!! *JOKE* What did the bra say to the hat? "YOU GO ON A HEAD WHILE I GIVE THESE TWO A LIFT!" har har harrrrrrr!


4. PICNIK.COM

Yup. Picnik.com. This is the photo editing site I use. It's free, unless you want the deluxe model which is only like $30 a YEAR. I have Photoshop Elements now...but I still use Picnik because it's so easy to figure out! (Maybe some day I'll be smart enough for Photoshop...) It's amazing. So many fun filters and stuff! You can pretty much fix any picture you can find. Want proof? Here.
See what a difference? I'm telling you, if I can do it, you can do it.


Photo Editing Awesomeness. Simple as that. So, if you keep an eye on my photography blog PictureAlmostPerfect.blogspot.com, then everything you see there is done with Picnik.


5. JONES SODA
Oh how I miss these. I can't find them anywhere around here. (Any of you valley people know where to find these here!?! Anyone???) Mandy got me hooked on these in Houston. (dang yoooou!) And they are so good. No high fructose corn syrup...just pure cane sugar deliciousness. One of the things on my list of things to do before I die is to try the Fu Fu Berry flavor. It's like trying to find the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. You can never find it! :( So, if you ever see them...GET SOME! Especially the blue raspberry lemonade....or the strawberry lime.... *sniff sniff* or the green apple. Okay, now I'm really crying. I'll just stop now. Can you tell I'm passionate about this stuff? Mmm-hmmmm. That's what I thought.


Well, that's it for this week! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Accept for the fact that now I'm hungry, slightly depressed and out of gummy bears. ;)

6 people leaving some love!:

I'll have to try more of the Jones drinks for you! I see them all the time up here but have only tried them like twice!

Mike & Rachel Barton said...

Yumm.. That made me want to make Indian food. And I was the one who gave the recipe to mom ;) Make me some!!!

I haven't ever tried Jones soda but I am tempted to pick some up on the lonely nights when Mike's gone. ha ha.

Love you!

Mmmmm....gummy bears. I'm going to go put those on my grocery list now, thank you! Doesn't Brach's make the best candy? I got one of their flavored caramel mixed bags around Christmas and pretty much ate the entire thing. And their candy corn!!! OK, now I'm drooling.

I love following your blog!! You inspire me in so many ways! I love your pictures and hope someday we can get together and have a photoshoot...I got a Cannon Rebel T1I for Christmas and it's too much camera for this girl! I need some tips! I hope all is well for you! Miss seeing what you're up to on Facebook!
