Favorite Things

Here are a few of my FAVORITE THINGS from the month of May!

1.  Charlie's End of Year Teacher Gifts

I love this little goody basket. (Basket from the $1 section at Target.)  If your kids are still in school and you need a teacher idea you can find the printable here.

Charlie's 1st and last day of preschool.  What a sweetie he is.  Crazy the difference 9 months makes.  I am sure he will ask me, one day, why I let him go out of the house with a crazy haircut.  I will have to be completely honest with him and remind him that once he turned 2 he turned into a complete nut case whenever he saw a pair of sheers.

2.  This movie

I know I've already talked about it, but I really do love a movie that hits all my emotions.  This one did just that.  I can't get the adoption scene out of my mind.  Jennifer Lopez's character (love me some JLo) and her husband travel to Ethiopia to adopt a baby.  I sobbed while the child's caregiver presented the baby to his new parents. That scene definitely goes down in my "favorite scenes" folder. 

3.  This picture   

The boys have reached the stage where they play together, and I love it.  They are fully focussed on a truck episode of Bubble Guppies in this picture.  

4.  These flowers

My summer project!  And I'm keeping them alive...which is a pure miracle.  Hydrangeas are some of my favorite flowers and I love seeing them everyday.

5.  My newest pair of shoes

If you need a summer shoe, you need to get a pair of Jack Rogers.  They last forever and go with everything!  

During the month of June make note of your favorite things.  I'm thinking about doing a link up for your Favorite Things. (Last "week" day of the month)  Anything counts and you can have as many "things" as you want!

I love the idea of making this a link much so that I'm writing about my favorite things today. I hope you don't mind...I'm completely giving you credit for the idea. Also, I agree with you about the movie. It really did touch on all emotions.
