Random Ramblings: { A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS }

Saturday, July 28, 2012


I thought in honor of it being my birthday on Thursday, I thought that I would do a fun little post of some of my favorite things right now.  

1. My NIKDON D3100 I love my camera so very much.  It is an extension of my arm most of the time.  It give me the ability to do something that I love so very much and have such a passion for. If something happened to this baby, I would honestly cry.   

2. PROJECT LIFE - a fun and super simple way to record our everyday happenings.
I took this little quote off the website.

Project Life is a solution-based approach to scrapbooking that was created to simplify the process in order to allow you more time to enjoy life! It requires no glue, no scissors, no tools, and no skills of any kind. The design of our products takes the guess work out of layout design so that you can focus on recording your everyday moments through your photos and journaling. The simple design is stylish and makes it possible for you to complete more pages in less time. "

I have been bad this year about adding my pictures right away to our album, but I am still keeping up with my picture a day.  They got in all kinds of new designs for the page protectors and I am going to order them so I have it all set up for next year.  This year is just pictures, but next year I will be able to include memorabilia and fun stuff as well.  I can't wait. 

You can see where I keep up with my photo a day pictures HERE. I call ours {mantooth365}

I just got my first rotary blade and OH EM GEE!!  I love it so much. It has forever changed the way I will cut fabric.  Im so in love.  Dear rotary tool where have you been all my sewing life...  Never will I go back again to regular scissors.

4. DIET PEPSI is my drink of choice.  

5. WORDS WITH FRIENDS I love a good challenging game of Words With Friends.  If you have it downloaded on your phone you can find me under username nicolem7.  Look me up and start a game with me.  

7. SILHOUETTE CAMEO - now this is one that I don't actually have this exact one, but it is on its way to me.  I have the silhouette SD . They are basically the same thing, except the Cameo cuts on paper 12x12 size.  I will be ordering my new one hopefully next week.  I am selling the old one to go towards the price of my new one too. 

8. AMAZON.COM Not that I actually shop all that much online, but when I do it is always amazon that I check first.  You can get just what you are looking for at a great price with alot of options and low to free shipping.  I am really loving amazon right now for the fact that I can get my silhouette with free shipping and they have a great starter set and also all of my new project life stuff is right here on amazon.  

9. YOSHI restaurant .  We don't go often, in fact we have only been about 3 times but it is so good and very reasonably priced as well.  I love that you can add sushi rolls to their lunch specials for just a few dollars or less.  Jacob said he is going to take me out to lunch here maybe next week. I am really craving one of their crunchy rolls.  Yum just talking about it makes my mouth water. 
( I found this picture online, btw )

10. NETFLIX - We turned off our cable service last year and now we only watch netflix. I have to say that there may  be once or twice when I have missed the actual tv, but that was really only for the news.  But otherwise I so do not miss tv.  I love our netflix. I love getting those red envelopes in the mail.  Most of the time I forget to move a movie to the top of the movie queue so when they come it is a little suprise.
We have a wii in our master bedroom, in the family room downstairs, Ryan has an xbox in his room and marcus can watch it on the computer in his room.  So pretty much every room except the 3 littles ones room can watch netflix.  We also have the laptop that we can watch it anywhere we go with it and also on my smartphone we can watch netflix as well.  Who can do that with their cable tv.

11. IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE BOOKS - I have always loved these books and now so do my children.  I love that little Jacob can now read them to me and the other kids at bedtime.  They all love all of these books so much.  We have all of them, except for one I believe. So I think that will be the book the kids will be getting for Christmas this year.  

12.  QUAKER SNACKS - I really didn't think I would like these but I have to say they are SO GOOD.  The blackberry pomegranate are the best snack EVER.  I usually put enough in a small bag to equal out the calories (like 100 calories or 110 I believe) so I can just grab the bag and go.  

These are just a few of my favorite things right now.  The list is always ever growing.  

What are some of your favorite things?
