These are a few of my favorite things.... {Post II}

Hello there! I thought I'd share some of my favorites right now :)

Emma ~ the 2009 BBC version

Now you may be familiar with Gwyneth Paltrow's 1996 movie of Jane Austen's "Emma". It's a favorite for sure! Well a couple weeks ago my sisters & I rented BBC's 2009 version of Emma, and it was wonderful! They did a great job of casting, everyone really fit their part. If you like anything Jane Austen you will love it! Go rent or buy it now! You will be dreaming of Mr. Knightly for about a week straight. (Disclaimer, I cannot guarantee that last sentence but it is highly likely!)

Estate Sales

I love a good antique store, thrift store, and even garage sales. But there's something in particular I love about estate sales. Perhaps it's because the theme of garage sales are "one man's junk is another man's treasure" and with estate sales, it feels like you are having the chance to buy something that was someone's treasure. Maybe it be their collection of tea cups or a nice dresser - this wasn't the stuff they considered junk. They may have been holding onto it for 65 years! Now, I know that not everyone has the same style... but that's what makes things interesting. I've joined a couple mailing lists that alert me of local estate sales, so fun!

Graeter's Ice Cream

Some friends of mine have family back in Ohio and they just got back from a visit. They brought home along with them THE most delicious ice cream on the face of this earth. I'm sorry but I will argue this point with anyone, haha! On one of their past visits they brought home mint chip and it was true love at first taste. Yesterday I got to try Buckeye Blitz, which is chocolate + peanut butter goodness. Now I just saw online that they have a flavor called Strawberry Chip which is basically strawberries + dark chocolate - how does it get any better?? If you are ever traveling through Ohio, you can definitely bring me back a pint, k? :)

My New 5D Mark II

My newest addition to my little camera family! Isn't she lovely!?! And yes, I said "she". I'm actually still trying to pick out a name for her ;) If you have any name suggestions, feel free to leave a comment below & they just might make it on the name list!

Ciao! :)
