Things I Like (And an extra cupcake tidbit!)

Taking my cue from Anita's Post, here's a list of things I really like/love. Some are things, some are events.

* Trying a new recipe and having it come out super delicious.
* Rainy days when I can actually sleep in with no one nagging me.
* Having everything I HAVE to do, done before noon.
* Double stuffed oreos. ..oreoes? Oreo's? Brain fart.
* Deep dish pizza, from domino's.
* The welcome home ceremony on Cooper field. Something I don't mind only going to once every 2 years. :D
* When someone stops my husband to shake his hand and say thank you. (Only happens in his uniform, random people don't thank a 22 yr old in flip flops.)
* Writing.
* Reading.
* Pizza rolls.
* Cold winter days. Don't get many down here in Texas.
* Blooming flowers. From a distance, I have crazy allergies.
* Good friends hanging out having fun.
* My new mattress. It's all of 4 days old. :D
* Mop 'n Glow.
* Being able to rent a carpet shampooer.
* French fries.

Okay so the fact that five of my things related to food doesn't escape me. What can I say, I love food.

Cupcake Tidbit:

Just stumbled onto this blog, Mini Baker. She's running a contest to win this awesome looking cupcake book. I know most of my followers are writers, not bakers, but it's cute! The book claims anyone can make those cute cupcakes!

Go check it out. :D


  1. I just had to say that the cupcake book my work carried! Haha, the store (Daedalus Books) might still have it, but it sold out super fast. I have a copy, the cupcakes are freaking awesome. What I wouldn't give to have an hour to make adorable little creatures that taste yummy too. :-)

  2. Ooh, great list. I love mangoes, oysters, reading in bed when it is raining outside, snow (we don;t get to much of that in OZ) and Christmas. I love Christmas! Oh and words. I am rather taken with words :)

  3. I love to bake: muffins, pretzels (the big soft kind), cookies, pies, rolls, bread. I'm definitely a foodie. But I'm pretty sure I read and write more than I bake. Definitely more than I cook :)

  4. I like cold winters days too. I grew up in Michigan but now reside in southern California. I miss the seasonal changes. I miss a really good thunderstorm that really rocks. I do my best writing in that environment.
