These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things - Friend Makin' Monday

I am so excited that Kasey decided to start this. I have "met" some really cool people and have learned a lot of different things. I'm truly enjoying every minute.

Today's task: Share 10 of my favorite things!

Kelli's favorite things:

Sunflowers - I love sunflowers. It is such a happy flower (like how yellow is such a happy color). I would like to plant some in my yard one day, but for now I'll keep them in a vase to cheer me up.


The pool - There is nothing like sitting by the pool on a hot summer day. I love watching my kids play and putting my feet in the water. Being at the pool is very relaxing for me and summer can't get here fast enough for me to enjoy this pastime. Oh, and it has to be an outdoor pool!

Reading - I love to read. I learn a lot from the things that I read and it is another thing that is very relaxing for me. I like Christian reading, self improvement, suspense novels... I hope that my children grow up to love reading the way that I do.

Pizza - Pizza is hands down my favorite food. I am picky though, it can't be just any pizza. Local pizza places are usually my favorite but I do like a good Pizza Hut pizza every now and then (but it has to be eaten there for the best experience).

Color pens - I like to write...to do lists, journaling, life planning, etc. I love to use different color pens when I write. I'm just a colorful person and this adds to my personality I guess. My BSF notes are in all different colors.
Notebooks - If there is an excuse to buy a new notebook I will find it. I have notebooks with me all of the time. I use them for my many lists and to take notes on various things. I love them!

Coca Cola - For me, there's nothing like a ice cold can of Coca Cola...enough said.
Blogs - This one is pretty obvious but since it is one of my favorites, it had to make the list. The first blog I read was my friend Janna's (she doesn't blog anymore). It was so cute and from her blog I started reading others (you know how that happens). Through blogging I have learned so much and it has brought out a lot of creativity in me.
The Bible - While I have been saved for a while, I've never truly studied the Bible until recently. I was invited to BSF by my friend Sara and it made me want to study the Bible and see how great of a book that it is. I use it as a reference all of the time, using verses to help me with tough times and as words of encouragment. It is a valuable tool for me.


My Family - These people mean the world to me. I look forward to seeing them and talking to them each day. Rondell is my best friend and I am most comfortable when I'm with him. My children are my joy and just their smiles light up my day.

So, what are a few of your favorite things? Tell us!

Great list...I love sunflowers too! And pizza - and notebooks. Isn't this fun? You have a beautiful family!

Kelli, we have a few things in common. Quilting is not hard at all. I would lsuggest you begin with strip quilting. That is where you sew long strips of fabric together then cut them into squares and sew together again. More advanced can be more difficult, but strip quilting is fast, fun and very pretty.

Your blog is so cute and I love the list. I am with you on a love for sunflowers. Last summer I planted them in a flower bed and they just brightened the entire backyard. So as you can tell I am longing for the summer days also. I have so enjoyed getting to know you in the blogging world. Have a blessed day!

Kelli, I wasnt sure to respond to you on my comments or yours so I picked yours! Mainly b/c I love your blog! Elizabeth George's book: Beautiful in God's Eyes is life changing! She truly breaks down the Proverbs 31 woman to today and gives applications to apply to your life. It not only is making me a better wife and mother, but my confidence in myself is phenominally differant than when I began the book. The book hasn't done that but by applying what she says opens my heart to what God wants from me and how I am to be with and for my family! Honestly I will read the book again and again, just to absorb all I can from it...Ok, sorry I've written a book! Let me know if you start it! I would love to hear your thoughts,

Amy

Oh, I feel as though I know you better Kel. =) Thanks for the fun information. I do plan on doing the purse tag idea and this one. So cute. Now, I just have to get around to doing it. =)

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

Kelli, What a fun list! I loved that you included colored pens and notebooks into your list...I bet your calendar is color coded! :) And, I agree that summer can not come fast enough...I'm so looking forward to some sun! Ooo...and I'm right there with you on pizza - SO DELICIOUS!!

Hope you have a blessed day!

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

I love Pizza Hut pizza too but the hubby doesn't...so when I get it, it is a treat!

You sound like a list maker- like me.

What a fun way to get to know one another! Thanks for sharing!

Ms. Tee said...

AndreaLeigh said...

Kelli said...

I love this! Not only do we have the same awesome name, you must be my sister from another mother! With the exception of the pool (because I'm a really lowsy swimmer...ha!), the rest are absolutely my favorite things! I will have to post some photos of my sunflower art, and Lord knows I am up to my eyeballs in pens and notebooks...I love the stationery dept of any store! I'll get some photos together and post my favorite things soon...will give you a shout out on my blog too. :)
