A Few of My Favorite Things

Happy Thanksgiving! If you're reading this, chances are you know me very well and I love you a lot so I'm thankful for you! If you don't know me- I'm thankful you are reading this!

Now I'm not at all trying to downplay the spirit of Thanksgiving. I am absurdly thankful for the people and opportunities that have allowed me the life that I have. But since this blog is usually pretty lighthearted (except when crying over celebrities) I wanted to focus on something . . . well . . . a bit more materialistic. Sometimes aren't you really thankful for something you own? Is that just me? Don't judge. So as an ode to some of the things I love and possibly as a holiday shopping guide, I present to you . . .

CFC's Favorite Things
( also known as all of the materialistic crap that I'm thankful for)

Sometimes I can't believe I got through 10+ years of regular running without this. To know how far I am running AND how fast . . . to have a running watch that looks legit, yet still a subtle bit of pink . . . it is a joy to use everyday.

When you graduate from college, it is a requirement that you develop some sort of morning caffeine routine. Maybe you were more hip and developed this in college? But I'm willing to bet you just got some absurd Starbucks beverage when you had to study. Anyways, coffee in the morning makes me so jittery and sweaty palmed that by 4pm I inevitably have to lay down and take some smelling salts. It's very Victorian. Anyways, I started drinking tea when everyone started drinking coffee and I never looked back. I've become a bit of a tea snob, and really only drink loose leaf tea when I can. And Adagio is the best of the best! I like to rotate the flavors in my cup per season- lemon and rasberry in the summer, cinnamon spice in the fall, and I am currently enjoying gingerbread this morning!

Sex and the City - the complete series DVDs

Well this is a gift that keeps on giving. Sure, SATC is now replaying on E! and the Style network, but who wants to watch it completely censored (which pretty much means sans Samantha?) Not me! I got this for Christmas the year the movie came out and watched every single episode in a row before I saw the first film in theaters. When those girls appeared on screen I almost teared up at seeing old friends again! But these discs are great for a lazy Sunday on the couch recovering from a night out, when nothing is on tv, or for those terrible first few days when you move somewhere and don't have cable yet.

Jessica Simpson- Waleo Pumps

I think we can all agree on one of life's greatest mysteries. How can Jessica Simpson have a successful clothing line with shoes that I LOVE yet have the worst personal style of all time? I don't know! What I do know is that I love these shoes. They come in rich, gorgeous colors and are the perfect mix between demure pumps and GaGa-esque towering booties. I have them in royal blue and leopard print and I'll tell you more about them later.

Frye Daisy Duke Cowboy Boots

I've posted about these here and here, but seriously . . . if you own red cowboy boots you automatically feel like a movie star. Or someone who owns reds cowboy boots.

In my ongoing quest to transform into Kelly Ripa I have developed a fairly regular routine of Physique 57. I know its not the same as being in the class, but its by far the best workout dvds I've ever owned. I'm not much closer to looking like Kelly, but at least I can say I tried.

Frizz Ease Hair Serum

Before and After (with a better hair cut and styling tools too). Enough said.

Conair You Curl

See above.

My favorite romantic comedy I've seen in years starring the sexiest man alive. (Take that Bradley and Ryan!) Out of dvd this Friday!

Regal Cinemas Gift Card
No need to complain that you don't know what to see when you have CFC! Also no need to complain that you don't want to spend the money when you have a gift card! Feel free to send some my way and I would be happy to review some more movies for you!

And as Thanksgiving ends . . . Christmas begins! Here's a few more of my favorite things. What are yours?
