I'm Like Oprah

Pe-OPLE! The holidays are up-PON us! And that means it is time for O-PRAHHHHH to unveil her "Favorite Things" and cause normally rational, functional people to become babbling morons, -- and cause the rest of the world to envy them because they have just been given thousands of dollars in gifts. This year though, I am not letting Oprah steal the spot-LIGHT! This year, I am sharing my OWN favorite things! AND EVERYONE WHO READS THIS BLOG GETS ALL OF THE THINGS LISTED!*

Let's kick things off with something I think you all know I enjoy a great deal. It's tasty, it's economical, and it's green way to drink. Yep, I am talking about box WINEEEE!


Every sip makes you a better person because instead of leaving behind four glass bottles you are leaving behind one box! All your sips are cheaper too -- unless you regularly buy bottles of wine under five dollars each. And because it's a box you don't have to watch the wine level go down and feel bad about all those sips! Win! Win! WIIIIIIN!

You know what I really love doing when I am drinking? Yep, that's right blog-GING. And do you know what's better than just blogging? STEALING BLOG TOPICS FROM OTHER
PEOPLE!

That's right everyone! For instance, I stole this blog topic from the lovely Wendi Aa-RONS!
I could probably just put her blog on my list of favorite things, but I don't want to her to think I am selling her into slavery. Not yet.

I like to be comfortable when blogging. I mean, who doesn't, right? Aren't we all just looking for a little comfort, whether we are Utah based bloggers just trying to stay sane or Chicago based billionaires aiming for world domination? Of course we are. That's why one of my favorite things are pa-JA-ma PANTS!!


The pants above are from the holiday collection in keeping with the season, but pajama pants come in all themes, colors and sizes. Yes, comforting is that accepting and accommodating. No matter how much weight you gain or lose, they are there for you, like a secret fleecy lover. I'm not going to say any more, because this could get awkward.

Of course, I can't just sit around the house all day in pajama pants drinking wine and blogging. I have to go out in the world, if for no other reason, than to buy more wine. When I do that, I like to put my best foot forward, and that mean BOO-OOTS!


No, I have never spent time in a prison rodeo. Nor have I been a hobo. I am just clumsy and end up kicking things I should step over. Ryan keeps asking me when he can polish my boots, or burn them, and I just let him know I am keepin' it real -- boot style.

Our last, but not least item is being modeled by the lovely TA-ra. I think you will agree it is the e-PITO-me of class.


Not only can you express your love for the tiny hamlet of Beaver, Utah, but you can laugh like a 12 year old boy while doing it. I carry mine in my purse wherever I go. I never know when I might need it.

There are so many more of my favorite things I wish I could share with you in full. Road trip dough-NUTS. Mocking cele-BRI-ties at their low point and ignoring that even then they make more MO-ney than I ever will. Getting a pedicure at a salon where they are DEF-initely talking about me in Vietnamese, but not caring because they have good maga-ZINES. Really, I wish I could tell you all about all of those in detail, but this is only a one hour show, er blog.

I just hope that my little glimpse into my favorite things has brought you as much happiness as it has brought me. And I hope each and every one of you will enjoy taking them home with you, and loving them as I have.**


*No, you don't.

**No, really, there are no gifts.

You know, I'm totally going out with the toddler tomorrow to buy box wine now ;-)

Deidra said...

I really, really like the new layout. :)

As far as this post, it's great to see some of the things that make you happy! Usually, you cover topics that are a little more...controversial, and although hearing your opinion is always interesting, it's nice to hear...er, SEE you happy!

Rassles said...

Oh, those boots are killer.

Riot Kitty said...

Awesome boots for sure! I think I'd get into trouble if I wore that bracelet around here. Meaning, it would be taken literally...

Jules said...

Boxed wine and I love Beaver. NICE! Seriously, send me those boots.

Little Girl::Big Glasses said...

I looked under my chair just in case you had put boxed wine and a beaver bracelet there. Alas, no. But I did find some pajama pants. Yay!

Nicole said...

Loving those boots. Leave them just the way they are. They're fab.

BugginWord said...

I carry my beaver in my purse, too!

LL Cool Joe said...

Geez I thought this was Wardrobe Wednesday for a moment..

Love the new layout too.

JenS said...

Love the boots. Never had box wine, but there's always this holiday coming up. :)

Kelly said...

There is something about wine in a box that makes you get a bit tipsyer faster. Yay, box wine!

Summer said...

I like the boots the way they are. Very Calamity Jane-ish. Fleecy Lover. I will never look at pajama pants the same again.

WA said...

AH! WHERE'D MY FACE COME FROM!?!?

Did my agent give you photo clearance?

And the box rocks.

The other day, I had a coupon for a free small cup of frozen yogurt from an ice cream place. When I asked for it and the man behind the counter handed it to me, I was tempted to go Oprah Favorite Things show audience member CAAAAHRAYYYZEEE on him, but he looked fragile, and I didn't want my tears and screams to scare him to death, so I opted for a polite thank you. Free ice cream makes me happy, but not delirious. I would, however, weep tears of joy for some of that boxed wine!

Chief said...

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU ARE GIVING ME A NEW CAR!

GASP!

FabuLeslie said...

Oh my goodness! Your favorite things are some of MY favorite things TOO! Can you beLIEVE it?? I can't. Who KNEW? I'm glad you're like Oprah, because we need a new one. Congratulations. I know you are happy to be appointed. Anointed? Well, you know.

Midwestern Mama Holly said...

I have been a lover of the boxed wine for many many years!! Love the boots and I may just steal this topic idea from YOU!! Bwwaahhaaa!!

Erin said...

Have you seen Conan's spoof of her favorite things show? Hee hee... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XcT49ms4yg

Kim said...

With your stature those boots are more Spanish Conquistador than urban cowboy.

The new template says "subtle sophistication and wisdom."

I think the lime green suited you better.

Catherine said...

Oh lordy you really sound like Oprah! Love to boots and love the look of the blog. Esp. the cute photo of Me-egh...she's getting so big!
