Today is my birthday, but it’s rainy and dreary up here in the Pacific Northwest and I’m not feeling much like celebrating so I thought I would put together a list of a few of my favorite things a-la The Sound of Music to cheer myself up and get into the party spirit.
A Few of My Favorite Movies
I’m a sucker for the older ones, especially the ones that feature people acting crazy and fate/luck. Here are the movies I would watch over and over again
IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD
BETTER OFF DEAD
A Few of My Favorite Romance Novels
This list is pretty all over the place but these books all stuck with me long after I read the final page. If I wasn’t on a quest to read as many books as I can in my lifetime I would gladly go back and reread each of these. But alas, my TBR pile grows longer by the day…
And Lastly... A Few Things You Might Not Know About Me
- I learned how to drive on the left side of the road when I lived in Dublin for a year
- I ran a full marathon a couple of years ago but after having a baby I can barely run a mile without collapsing into a heap
- I have three younger brothers who were as rowdy as they come and somehow none of us ever broke a bone
- My favorite birthday dessert is yellow cake with chocolate frosting, and nothing fancy – just the boxed stuff!
So what is your favorite birthday dessert? Something unusual? Or tried-and-true? Leave a comment and let me know!
