My Favorite Things

Everyone has a list of their favorite things.  Things they like to do, buy, have, eat, etc.  My kids have their favorite things.  My favorite season is Autumn.  Hayley's favorite show is Olivia.  Ryan's favorite toys are her Pet Shops.  One of Jonas' favorite thing to do is Guitar Hero.  I thought I would share some of mine with you all.
  1. Cupcakes - I believe I've gone on about my love for cupcakes before.
  2. Photography - this is a given.
  3. Bumble and bumble hair products - They are awesome.
  4. Candles - I love to burn candles in the fall and winter.
  5. Coffee - Love me some coffee
  6. Tea - iced, hot, loose, green, black...but not instant, that's just gross.
  7. Getting a massage
  8. Chi Flat Iron - Best flat iron, hands-down.
  9. Jodi Picoult Novels
  10. Going to the Movies
  11. Pie - yum...
  12. Getting a manicure or pedicure -who doesn't?
  13. Jewelery - handmade, diamond, Tiffany's, bead work
  14. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers - These are indeed magical, makes cleaning my oven that much easier.
  15. Febreze Products - They make your house smell nice.
  16. Scones with Lemon Curd - Yummy.
  17. Subway - Turkey stacked with veggies!
  18. Making Photo books - They make nice gifts and are an awesome way to display pictures
  19. My Keurig Coffee Maker - One day I will blog about my Keurig
  20. Place mats - I like my table to look nice.
  21. Body Butters from The Body Shop - especially the Olive Oil one!
  22. Cards, pretty stationary. - I still like to hand write letters and notes and use snail mail.
  23. Coupons - I've blogged about this, nothing better than saving some money.
  24. Knitting - I don't do this enough, but I really enjoy it.
  25. Godiva Chocolate - I could go for a truffle right now!
  26. Sweaters - It's nearly Fall, I can't wait to break out my sweaters and buy some new ones!
  27. Vera Bradley - So many colors and patterns, so many bags and things...
  28. Books - I have a stack of books I need to start working on soon.
  29. Burt's Bee's Lip Balm - Only kind I buy.
It's a lot of stuff, I got a little carried away.  So, why am I sharing this today?  Is there a catch?  Yes, here it is:

Welcome to my first ever, hopefully not my last, blog give away!  I've always wanted to do one of these and decided now was the time.  What do I win, you ask!  It's a secret.  But the prize will include at least 6 things from my list above.  I will also have a second drawing for a smaller prize including 3 items from my list.  I am not sponsored, this is for fun.  So here is how you enter:

  • For 1 entry, follow my blog and leave a comment.  If you are already a follower, please just leave a comment below and tell me.  I will still give you an entry since it's my first give away.
  • For 1 entry, comment on this contest and tell me one of your favorite things, leave your email too. 
  • For 1 entry, share me on Facebook.  There's no way to confirm this one easily, so please leave me a comment and let me know.  There a share button on the left hand side of my blog.   
  • For 3 additional entries, add my button to your blog.  Comment below and leave a url.
  • For 3 additional entries, blog about my giveaway.  Comment below and leave a url.
You must leave a seperate comment on this blog for each different entry for it to count.  Please leave an email with every entry so I can contact the winner.  The contest will end Sunday, September 26 at 7:00pm PST.  The winner will be chosen at random.org.  Winners will have 48 hours to claim their prize, if that doesn't happen, I will pick someone else.  Have fun!

Favorite things to match your faves:

Coffee: Vinaccio. Local, organic, good vibe for meeting friends.
Massage: Robin at Smokey Point Massage Therapy. She works body and soul, truly amazing.
Knitting: Are you on Ravelry? Member of the Snohomish Knitters Guild? You should be, we have a great group of local meetups that have some awesome women. You'd fit right in.

Any my other obsessions lately-
Headbands- www.bondiband.com, for both moms and girlies.
Running, yoga and spin class.
AlterEco chocolate bars.
Coconut milk ice cream and coconut water.
