A few of my favorite things...


I've never completely understand why My Favorite Things is a Christmas song but let's just go with it. Just in time for this merriest of holidays - these are a few of my favorite things...
1. Tropical Beaches - Greetings from Key West by the way. 
2. Books that draw you in from the first sentence and don't let go when you're done. There's nothing like a book that makes you feel you are living it with the characters. To the point that you hate to see the book end and clamor for a sequel. 
3. Great kisses - a kiss that tells a whole story of emotion and there's no rush to get to the end? My favorite kind. Especially, if he puts his hands on my face and neck to start? Whew, boy... next topic. 
4. Paid Time Off. Self-explanatory, no? 
5. Chocolate. All varieties. Take that anyway you want. 
6. Sleep - really, is there anything better than 7+ uninterrupted hours of sleep when you have nowhere to be the next day? Or a 30 minute disco nap? Or sleep after um - satisfying aerobic activity? Sleep rocks. I plan to get more of it this year. 
7. Royalty checks - I would write for free. I really would. And I kinda do. But I gotta say, getting a check from my agent's office gives me a little thrill every single time. *throws confetti* 
8. Shoes. What can I say, it's an addiction. Sandals, loafers, boots, pumps - I don't discriminate. Right now, I'm having a love affair with driving loafers in funky colors with sparkle across the toe. Last month, I "enhanced" the boot wardrobe. Don't judge me.
9. Music that means something. Driving down to Key West from Fort Lauderdale today, we pulled up the iPod and selected a playlist at random. We ended up listening to Take 6. Two and a half hours in and we were still singing, swaying and snapping along - how many artists can you say that about? Good music rocks. {cliche but true} 
10. My Kindle Fire - Bougie OlderBro got me one for Christmas (I may or may not have opened it early) and I love it. Love, love, love it. My Amazon addiction knows no bounds now. 
Bonus - This blog - Yeah, I do love it. Some days I can't think of a thing to write and other days I write something one way and you guys take it a completely different way in the comments. Le Bougie Shrug. It's still all good. Free therapy for us all. 
Thanks for hanging out. Can you list one of two of your favorite things? The floor is yours...
