Finish This! #57 Favorite Things

This week's prompt for Finish this with Nicole - My favorite...

Before I begin, I'm sure there is some tacky saying about how middle of the road I am about things. I seriously lack in all things favorites. I haven't had a favorite color since childhood; I really like purple, orange, pink, gold. Which of those is my favorite? No idea. Several of these will follow suit. The way I see it, there are too many good things in this world to have just one favorite! 

I think this is one of those things I just haven't ever been interested in since A) I'm cheap and B) I don't really follow pop culture. I'm 99% certain that the last magazine I owned was a All You and I had it for coupons. I have honestly enjoyed reading through magazines when I've had them around, I'm just not interested in paying for them. We did have a short lived subscription to Good Housekeeping and I've gotten some really fun ideas and recipes from them, but not enough to justify the price in my mind. 

I can only pick one? Cheese balls are fun! I like that you can have so many different flavors from one simple concept. I also really like shrimp, so just about anything shrimp I'm quite pleased with. Ohhhh... if we count it as an appetizer, I love all things Tex-Mex! Chips and queso, or salsa, or guacamole or how about all three, please! I also really love certain spinach and artichoke dips, particularly with pita bread! There is a restaurant in McKinney that John's friend owns and I will get cravings for their spinach and artichoke dip and we will drive the hour just so I can eat there to have that appetizer!

Board Game...
Hmm... this is hard because I honestly don't have a favorite. We didn't really play board games growing up (my brothers still hate it when I suggest pulling out a board game) so I don't have much exposure to them. John and I own a few, his family are all big game players so I'm sure our collection will expand as our children grow up. Right now we have Apples to Apples (I really think this is more of a card game, but I really enjoy it!), Monopoly (because, duh), Risk (I don't think I've ever played it though), and Battle of the Sexes (haven't played that one either). 

Oh goodness, this is again where my cheap factor comes into play! I really enjoy body sprays, I feel like they're more my style than perfume and definitely more at my spending point. Vanilla anything is really an all time favorite scent! 

Wait, people like chores? I guess a chore of sorts would be gardening and working in the yard. I do occasionally enjoy that. Not so much when it's blazing hot outside, but early spring and fall I do enjoy my time outdoors doing things. Last years vegetable garden was a lot of fun and we plan to do that again this year. As far as more traditional chores, I actually didn't hate doing cloth diaper laundry. A little weird, I know. Something about washing and caring for the diapers that I knew were saving us loads of money just didn't feel like near as much of a chore. (I've known several other moms who say this, so don't worry, I haven't lost my mind!)


  1. Oh man, this made me laugh! Love reading your wishy-washy, kinda sorta favorites!!!!!

  2. I'm the most indecisive person you'll ever meet, so middle-of-the-road, on-the-fence is my comfort zone! By the way, I want to come over and eat cheese balls and shrimp and spinach dip while we play Battle of the Sexes. That sounds fun .... and full of shenanigans!!!!! Thanks for joining the link up too, you're wonderful. :)

  3. Mmmm you had me at cheese ball. So good! So many of my favorite apps are now no nos since I'm gluten free :/

  4. You are so right- Vanilla anything is where it is at!

  5. "Wait, people like chores?" made me choke on my Coke Zero. Thanks!
    Mmm...vanilla anything really does smell so good.
