These are a few of my favorite things *UPDATED W/ MORE BLOGS*

"Raindrops on roses, feathers on chickens, bright Creuset kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages from UPS, these are a few of my favorite things."  -Me :)

Hi there.  Happy Fat Tuesday!  I am sitting on my hands fighting all urges to head to Whole Paycheck and pick up a King Cake for dessert while watching Glee.  Because I know it will most likely end up being Fat Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday around here until the damn thing is gone.  By the way while setting up Dave's phone I came across a Catholic Cheet Sheet App.  Now where the heck was this when I was in CCD as a child struggling to remember all the different Saints, Apostles, and Stations of the Cross.  Now you just press a button and up comes the Hail Mary or the Apostle's Creed.  Brilliant. 

Anyway I thought I would start a blog Series.  I guess that is what you are supposed to do when you write a blog.  It gets people used to expecting things from you on a more regular basis.  I however have a hard time with commitment because I get bored easily (Go ADD) so we will see how I fare.  I figure if I am writing about my favorite things I like it will be easier.  This could range from mascara and tampons to coffee makers and tomato seeds.  The possibilites are endless.  Kind of like Consumer Reports, only if your vacuum breaks please don't contact me.

At the request of my friend Kesha I thought I would start with some of my favorite blogs.  These are the ones who I read on a regular basis and get inspiration from.  Some are design based, some are family based, and some make no sense at all, but each let me escape my little life for a 1/2 an hour each day while catching a glimpse at how other people live.

Design Blogs

Lifestyle Blogs
http://www.koautism.blogspot.com/  (this one is written by a dear friend of mine about her precious son.  Her writing is incredible!) 

And these.....These are the ones that you can get lost in all of their different sections for hours.
http://www.simplemom.net/   -make sure you check out simple kids, food, and gardeneing too
http://www.fitsugar.com/   - this is my guilty pleasure because you can do pop sugar for a celeb fix, lil sugar, casa sugar.
http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ - because when you live in a small house you need ideas, and I love how all over the world no two people have the exact same house inside.  Also the food, and tech sections are great too. 

A lot of these I found by clicking on the links of blogs that people follow.  There is usually a side bar.  I have all of mine in my favoites menu on the computer, but will probably end up with them on here eventually.  It is a neverending cycle. You can sit up all night searching links on someone's blog and then searching the links on the other blog.  It's enough to drive you bonkers. 

And of course when I am feeling randy.....www.peopleofwalmart.com   

I would love to hear about some of the blogs you follow. 

Off to find me some rum for a Hurricane for dinner. 

XOXO, Cara
