10 Things I Like!

Thank you Jen from SHE (Style Through her Eyes) for passing this award onto me!  She's always so kind with the comments she leaves and she is a very talented blogger!  Be sure to check her out!

1. Post who gave you this award.
2. State ten things you like.
3. Give this award to 10 other bloggers and notify them with a comment.

10 Things I like
(To those of you that know me somewhat well, some of these items may be old news to you lol) 

My husband
Wouldn't that be strange not to include my husband in a list of ten things I like?  I do infact love him though, not just like!  He really is my best friend and I am very fortunate.   

My Blogger Friends
You girls are so inspirational!  Not only when it comes to fashion but friendship as well!  The best thing about blogging is the friendships I've made along the way!   You girls are amazing!  

Organic Goodies
I've been trying to eat healthy ever since last year when I wanted to lose weight.  Now lately I'm trying to take it up a notch and try to incorporate more entirely organic foods into my daily meals.  I've found a lot of good food items that I never knew existed and some items that I never thought were worth trying, but I was wrong.  Unfortunately we don't have an organic market available near us, but one of our super markets has an organic section that I've found incredibly useful and eye opening.  I'm really into Morning Star and Bocca's veggie/vegan burgers.  And Smart Dogs offers their version of a hot dog, with their Veggie Protein Links (only 45 calories).  And besides good for you fruits and veggies which I try to have with every meal, if not for the entire meal itself, I've discovered this tasty treat:

Oh my goodness!  Who knew a dairy free "ice cream" substitute could actually be yummy?   It's USDA approved organic, and I can actually pronounce all the ingredients listed, and I know what they are as well!  It surprisingly has beet juice in it, but I promise you, you cannot taste it one bit!  Do you girls have any favorite organic items you always throw into the cart when grocery shopping?  

Now if only I can exercise on a regular basis, than I would truly feel good about my body! 

Our little kitty we took in a few weeks ago.  We weren't looking for a pet just yet, and when we did get one we were planning on first getting a dog, but someone had abandoned her!  Poor thing!  As soon as we reached for her she started snuggled with are chins and purring like crazy!  How could we resist?  She's definitely not a snooty cat, that's for sure!

Hot Beverages
Most of you already know this, but I'm a huge tea drinker, and I also love coffee with flavored creamers added in!  When listing 10 things I like, I had to mention this, it's such a big part of my life! :)  

Tea of the moment:  Lipton's Cranberry Promegrante Green Tea (But Twinings Tea holds a special place in my heart!)

Coffee: Kerry and Loni's Blueberry Crumble Cake Coffee ( when we brew it, it fills our whole house with the smell of blueberries and a touch of cinnamon!  It smells and tastes heavenly! 

Flavored Creamer of the moment: Oh probably Coconut Creeme or Peppermint Mochoa, but my all time favorite flavored creamer is only seasonal (Fall/Winter, so coming soon!) It's White Chocolate Raspberry!! 
Best Ever! 

The Olsens
I feel like I grew up with the Olsens.  Although I love both of their unique styles, Ashley has always been my favorite.  I know I'm like many of you out there, when I say I view them as fashion icons.  They have their own sense of style.  Sometimes I don't like the outfits they put together, but most of time they look effortlessly chic!  

High Heels
For someone's whose only 5'3, it should be pretty obvious why I like high heels!  

I can't help it.  I know it totally goes against my organic foods mention above, but deep down I still have a major sweet tooth!  I've cut back a lot with my sweet cravings, but every now and then I need a cupcake! Don't we all? Or a slice of cake, or something else sugary and so bad for you!  But it just needs to be only every so often and in moderation! 

It's my favorite season.  I love when it's not too hot and not too cold.  It's so beautiful when the leaves on the trees change colors!  And it's perfect weather for fun layers!  Also, caramel apple cider!!!

 Girlie Things
Such as bows and lace, and all things pink.  Pink is my favorite color.  Hearts and  flowers.  Love stories in books and movies.  Nicholas Sparks anybody?  

wow, this was actually kind of tough and time consuming. So on that note, I pass this award onto, lol, the following:

Sorry if any of you girls have already received this award!  I hope you all have a lovely day!

Aww, thanks for the sweet comment! I loved reading through your list!

I am not sure Fresh and Easy carries organic ice cream...maybe because I never looked, so I just don't know? Ha ha! This ice cream looks so delicious!

Aww, your new kitty is adorable.

Heels are so fun. I'm one inch shorter than you!

Mmm, yes sweets. I need them every once and a while. Totally understand what you're saying.

I'm so excited for Fall, you don't even know :)
