Our Favorite Things~

Here are some of my FAVORITE THINGS from January.

1. Bobbie Brown Hydrating Eye Cream:

Does this actually work? I have no idea. Does it feel amazing? Yes!

2. Laundry Baskets from Walmart:

Snooze alert! I know. But seriously, I am in love with these laundry baskets. Perfect size to organize all the clothes.

3. Kourtney and Kim Take New York:

Don't pretend you don't watch this! (Or good for you if you haven't gotten sucked into it yet) I love this show. These girls are in FALSIES (fake eyelashes) ALL day. How is this even possible? Who cares? I love it. Noel and I watched the movie, "One Day", a few weeks ago. Not to spoil the movie for you if you haven't seen it, but it was hands down the worst, most depressing movie of all time. I couldn't even move afterwards...I was that depressed. Noel suggested I watch K&KTNY. And that is why I married him. It totally zapped my "I want to cry myself to sleep" mood and replaced it with mindless Kardashian material. Perfect.

4. Gerber's Squeezable Fruit:

Charlie can't get enough of this stuff. (So, I guess it should be on Charlie's list). It's super easy for a quick snack. And that's why I love it.

5. You're All My Favorites:

My mom gave me this book several years ago. I've always liked this book, but when I started reading it to Charlie and Walker the other day, I got choked up because it has a totally different meaning now.

While I was making my list, I thought it would be interesting to see what Noel had on his list of January Favorites.

And here they are (with Noel's thoughts).

1. The Alabama Crimson Tide are National Champions:

My favorite college football team played for the BCS National Championship down in New Orleans earlier this month. A lot of people questioned if they event deserved to play in the championship game because their only loss all season came against LSU who was the undisputed "Number 1" team in the country. Alabama's defense put on a show and proved that not only did the Tide deserve a shot at the championship, but that they were the best team in the country when it counted. Watch the SportsCenter highlights below:

2. The Roots album "Undun".

Best album of 2011. Period. I've been listening to this non-stop. Everyone knows The Roots from their role as the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC, but they've been making great music for years. This is by far their best work. "Undun" is a concept album told in reverse. It tells the story of a young man named Redford Stevens who makes bad decisions in his life due to the environment he is surrounded by. The first song is meant to be his death and the story goes in reverse from there. While the album has been critically acclaimed, it's not exactly selling out in all the stores. Take a listen and decide for yourself:

3. Clarks Originals Lapland Boot.

I got a pair of these from my mom for Christmas. They might be my favorite shoes ever. They look great with khaki's or jeans. They're dressy enough for work, but casual enough for a Saturday afternoon. I've been rocking' Clarks Originals Wallabies forever, but these have a little bit different flair. Just wanted to show everyone that Ashley's not the only one in this family with some style! Haha!

4. Range Rover Evoque.

It's a smaller Range Rover. It comes in 2 or 4 door models. It has everything you'd expect from a Range Rover (luxury, performance, etc.). Not really much else to say here.

5. All I have to say about my last one is... YO!!!!!!!

We did have ONE thing in common for our January favorites:

Walker's bathtime
I know I keep talking about this, but Walker plus his bath equals some SERIOUS cuteness. He kicks his arms and legs so hard and LOVES that he can control how the water splashes. It never gets old.

Enjoy your last day of January!!~

Cute post :) My OCD requires that I ask why the laundry basket on the left doesn't have handles, but the other 2 do??

Ashley said...

Ughh! I know. I had it turned backwards and didn't notice until the pic had already been uploaded. I immediately went to the laundry room and turned it around!
