Favorites and Sketchy Thursdays...

Mmm..chai tea
Love this music!
Just the right snack...

Favorite jandals, jeans and polish!
My layout this week for SketchyThursdays got me to thinking about some of my favorite things right now.  I thought I'd share some of them with you.  First up is my new favorite warm drink...spiced chai tea.  I am trying to perfect making my own as a cup of it at a coffee shop is about $5.  Not quite there but pretty yummy all the same.

My next favorite I'm listening to as I type this.  My top 3 Christmas CDs.  With it starting to be summer here, it just doesn't feel right to play Christmas music most days.  We will stop into the mall and hear "Dashing through the Snow" on the loud speaker and just shake our heads as we are in jandals (flip flops) and short sleeves.  Just doesn't seem right.  Today its in the low 60's, wet, and my hands are cold so it makes more sense to play it.  I love Christmas music and usually play it from my birthday in October well into January.

I love these rice crackers!  They are a great snack without costing me too much in calories.  Yumm!!!  And I love it when they are on special (not sale because everything is for sale every week) for $1.99 instead of $3.49.  That's when its time to stock up!

These are my favorite jandals, practical and a splash of color.  I ordered them from the states for $27.00 which if I could have found them here they would have been well over $100 and then my loving Mother-in-law shipped them over to me.  They are SO comfortable!  I will be on the lookout for another pair.  I'm wearing my go to favorite jeans and never leave the house without this polish on my toes...Walmart $0.97 special I might add.

Now on to my layout....Kaikoura is one of our favorite places to visit in New Zealand.  The mountains are just stunning there and you can be 3 feet or less away from brown fur seals.  Of course they are still wild so we approach them with caution but love being able to see them so close.  We took these pictures when we visited Kaikoura on my birthday.  The next time we are up to Kaikoura, we will have my in-laws with us and are so excited to share this beauty with them.  I must admit that some of my favorite things have shown up on this layout...bling, pom pom trim, flowers, mini alphabets, and Thickers.  And of course I've scrapped my favorite subjects too...the boys and us!      : )
