Random Things That I Love

We all love the typical things...friends, family....but today I wanted to talk about the totally random, out of nowhere things that I love:

1- Steel Drums
The sound is amazing, and every time I hear them, I feel like I'm on a tropical island somewhere.
The best steel drum band I heard was in Jamaica--they were INCREDIBLE...the music was awesome but they did all kinds of crazy dance moves, too. Love me some steel drums!

There's nothing better than guacamole. The restaurant near us makes some KILLER guac. When my bestie Genna was in town a while ago, we ate a big old bowl of it with chips...and that was our meal. And we were both TOTALLY ok with it :)
Guac is the bee's knees!

3-Puppy wiggles
Walking in the door after a long day at work to a pup who is SO excited to see you that he just about wiggles himself off of the couch....it's one of the best things ever.

4-Sliding into a pool on a super hot day
{via} Ok...not quiiiiite like this...but you get the idea :)
There's nothing more refreshing on a hot day than getting into a cool pool.

5-Hearing a song that was your 'jam' from back in the day on the radio in the car
It's like someone gifted you a little treat on your car ride. And, if you're like me, you end up car-dancing for the song's entirety, no matter who is looking :)

6-The smell of a burning candle, especially apple cinnamon scents
Apple cinnamon might be one of my favorite smells of all time. Burning a candle that smells like this is soooo yummy. It also makes me hungry for apple pie, but that's neither here nor there.

7-Cotton Candy
{via} Ok...not in reverse...lol
Not something that I have often...in fact, I can't tell you the last time that I had cotton candy. But, I dare you to have some cotton candy and NOT feel like a kid again :)

8-The smell of  new magazines
Some magazines or catalogs just have a smell to them, and I love it. Its that fresh/crisp smell. Mmm, so random, but I love it.

9-Swatting a fly that's been flying around, driving you mad
I don't think I need to explain this one....it's just gratifying, especially after that little guy flew around making you lose your marbles.

10-Curling up and reading inside, when it's raining outside
Self explanatory, right? It's just so relaxing and peaceful. That much easier to get lost in a good book.

What are some random things that YOU love?


  1. Guac is the BOMB.COM! Oh I love it soooo much!! And I pretty much love everything else on this list too!

  2. I could easily eat guac every day and not get tired of it. #9, YES! hahaha

  3. Apple cinnamon candles and guac... Yes, yes, YES! I've (almost) been wishing for fall already just so I can get some fall scents going here in my home! :)

  4. mmmm cotton candy..... sounds so good as does a cotton candy candle. But puppy wiggles... OMG the best thing in the entire world!!! And J loves them now too. I love hearing him say in his little voice, hello chloe when he walks in the door and see that tail going 90 to nothing.

  5. Mmm guac! Do you like the smell of peppermint? Bath and body works has THE BEST twisted pepprmint candle...ever. that's what i love

  6. puppy wiggles are the best! and yum to both the guac and the cotton candy, though maybe not at the same time. LOL!

  7. Cotton candy is ridiculously delicious, and also, that gif made me die laughing. And reading while it's raining?? YES. It has been really rainy in Vegas this week (so weird!), and it's making it really difficult to concentrate on work and school, since literally all I want to do is curl up in my chair by the window and read until I can't anymore.

  8. I heart all these things minus cotton candy. can't say i have ever been a fan

  9. #5: This really perks my mood right up! I have always loved the Spice Girls and Destiny's Child songs :)

    #10: Reading is the ultimate pastime! I just finished Landline by Rainbow Rowell. as always, she has given me another book to read over and over and over :)



I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
