Tag! I'm it.

Heather, my new blogging buddy, tagged me for a 5 favorite things post.

Her 5 favorite things are very thought provoking... my favorites are going to be a little more, um, superficial. :)

My personal 5 favorite things to pamper myself:

1. A good pedicure! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a good pedicure. I don't even mind (too much) when I make an appointment and still have to wait 30 minutes to get into the massage chair... It kills me to wait at the doctor's office or the dentist, but the nail salon? No big deal. Why? I know that good things are coming!

2. A good book! I've been working on a post to tell you all about my newest obsession... Twilight! The Twilight book series is geared towards "Young Readers". It's probably slightly "young" for me, but good grief I LOVE IT!
If you like a good, CLEAN (no s*x scenes, only 2 uses of an "ugly word"), romance novel this is the book for you. **NOTE: I'm am only on the 2nd book in the series so I can only speak of the quality of the first 1.5 books of the series.

Here's the run down (without spoiling anything for you): High school girl, Bella, falls in love with Edward, a guy who is not exactly her "type". They face all sorts of life threatening challenges.
I told my sister in law, Amanda, that I'm glad I'm married and not in the dating scene anymore... Edward Cullen will raise your dating standards to impossible heights!
I know several people (some younger than me and some older) who have read this series and ALL of them LOVE IT!
**There will be a Twilight movie coming out this December!

3. TV on DVD! I really enjoy getting a TV series on DVD. Brandon and I have watched a few seasons of 24 on DVD. If you like blood pumping, high action tv... 24 is for you! We've watched a few others, but for some reason I'm drawing a blank right now!

4. Mint Mocha Chip Frappuccino! I mentioned this great frappuccino in a recent post. It's just delicious! I don't get them very often, but they are great for those super hot, all day shopping trips! :)

5. A trip to Target WITHOUT my kids! I could spend all day in Target! I love to wander the aisles. I don't even have to buy anything... I just look to see what's new! :)

So there you have it! 5 of my Favorite Things! :)

Jen, I read the whole Twilight series, except the new one, and I loved them too. Did you know that Forks is a real place in Washington State? Wouldn't it be cool to visit there?

I love pedicures, fraps, and Tarjay, too. :)

Hey is the Twilight series the one about a vampire? Or am I way off here?

Carolina Mama said...

Well, these sound good to me! DItto to Jackie, your top three here too. :)

I haven't read the Twilight series, but I haven't read much lately. I do however, love some TV on DVD. I own about seven seasons of different shows!!!! (Criminal Minds, CSI:Miami, and NCIS)
