These are a few of my favorite (50) things

Mary Beth over at saltandchocolate has come up with a few (also 50) of her favorite things.  Here is my list in progress.  What are some of your favorite things?

1)  Apple picking.  We go here to Stribling and recommend it if you're in Virginia.
2)  When my husband calls me a fool but is laughing at the same time he's calling me a fool (so who's the fool?!). : )
3)  Starbucks coffee.  There.  I said it.
4)  An organized desk, at home and at work.
5)  Coming home with a few new clothes items for work, whether they be from Target or H&M.
6)  Oogling over the make-your-own fabric at Spoonflower
7)  The sometimes incredibly beautiful jewelery from...  Forever 21.
8)  My new penpal.  (We're talkin' pen, paper, stamp, customs, post office)
9)  My daughter who says things like, "Maybe if today is sparkly we'll have recess outside." when she first wakes up.
10)  My son who says things like, "I do not stand for rudeness."
12)  New potatoes tossed in olive oil and sea salt, then roasted.
13)  Pandora radio
14)  Dreaming about living someplace else.  I love it here, but it's fun to imagine too.
15)  Tons of thin blankets in winter instead of one big thick blanket. 
16)  Flurries after dark.
17)  The sound of a snow plow at 5:00 in the morning and then tuning in for the school cancellations.
18)  Having a child come and tell me that they loved the book I recommended to them and that they finished it in two days or 1 day or 1 night under their covers with a flashlight.
19)  Etsy, especially hats from here.  Send her your head size and it's a perfect fit for fall.  And cowls from Sweden.  You won't step outside without it.
20)  Thanksgiving foods.
21)  Nature in general.
22)  My girlfriends.  They always have time for me.
23)  Decluttering.
24)  Turning 40.
25)  A full fridge and a full pantry.

I love your #9, especially. I love finding stuffed animal cats stashed in the lego box with a blanket and pillow because "THAT'S WHERE LITTLE KITTEN LIKES TO SLEEP!!"
