A Few of My Favourite Things

Rebekah  tagged me for the A Few of My Favourite Things tag. Thank you, Rebekah! :) 

The Rules:
-Write down ten of your favorite things
-Tag at least three others!

Okie dokie, here are a few of my favourite things! 

1. My Family!
I could never make it without my family! 
2. Books

I have finally figured out that I do like to collect things. Books! I don't think I could ever get tired of collecting books :) Or reading 'em! 
Don't judge; I like to dream ;) 

Imagine if you owned a library like this! :D Ahhh..... 
3. Music
Music. It can be so powerful at times, and it's a magnificent way to praise God! Listening to it, singing it; it's just something that will always be in my life. Music is so beautiful, especially when harmonies are added. It's a gift that God's blessed us with, and I'm SO thankful He gave it to us! 

4. Friends
I don't think you could ever live a truly happy life without good friends by your side! Good friends are with you through thick and thin, you can trust them (and talk their ear off XD ) I'm so thankful for each and every one of my friends, including those from the blogosphere! ;) You're all so special and  I'm so glad I met you! :D

5. Surprises
Who doesn't love a good surprise? Life is full of surprises, some good, some bad, some good and bad. But all in all, I like 'em pretty well :) 

6. Nature
The fragrance from a newly bloomed flower, the sound of waves lapping the sand, the smell of freshly cut grass, the tips of tiny green shoots breaking through dark soil, raindrops reflecting the golden gleam from a setting sun, and the cheerful songs of birds flying through the sky. All a result of our Maker's creation. God must really love us to bless us with such wonderful things, don't you think? 

7. School
Okay, so not all of my school is .... well liked (hint, hint - math), but for the most part, I love learning about new things. Literary Analysis has probably got to be my favourite, though. First, because there's LOTS of reading; second, I found that it's really fun to dig deep into something and well - analyze! :D 

8. Animals
Sooo...animals probably belong under the nature category; but I'm giving their own section. 'Cause I say so ;) 

9. Babies
Babies are SO adorable! Puppies, kittens, chicks, calves, foals, and especially human babies! :D
I've missed having a baby around here, actually. Tiger Lily and I have been asking Mom if she's going to have another one ;) 

10. Thrift Book Stores!!!
Clothing thrift stores are pretty awesome, but my favourite has got to be thrift book stores.  It's SO nice finding copies of books that are almost brand new but are priced at a dollar or two each. Sometimes even $0.25!! There is hardly ever a time when I go into a thrift book store without coming out with a pile of books. Actually, I just went to the store on Thursday :) I found the 3rd book from the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, for only $1! It was barely used and it was a hard cover. Later on that day, I looked it up on Amazon and found it priced at $19! I could probably ramble on and on about thrift stores and how much you save there....but I'll spare you all from myself and stop :P 

And that's the end! Of course, that isn't ALL of my favourite things...but then the tag said only a few, right? ;) What are some of your favourite things? 

I tag: 


  1. Love it! Babies! Oh, now I want to go hold a baby, but I'd better wait until I get rid of this cough I have. :(
    And books! Yes, yes, yes! Love to dread of large libraries full of my favorite books . . . Of course I'd have to have plenty of time to read them too. :)
    Actually my favorites are all of those things. :)

    1. Yes, aren't babies the most adorable things in the world?! Oh, I'm sorry to hear about your cough! Hope it gets better soon! :)

      Ahh yes, time. It would be nice to have large quantities of that too ;)

      Thanks for commenting, Rebekah! :)

  2. Thanks for doing the tag, Blessing! I had fun reading your answers. :)
    Books are so good! I don't think I could get tired of collecting them or reading them either. :)
    I love babies! They are so cute and so much fun!! :D
    Shopping for books at thrift stores is so much fun! I've found some pretty good deals on books at thrift stores too. ;)

    1. Thanks YOU for tagging me, Rebekah! It was super fun :)

      You like to collect books too! :D Yeah, aren't thrift stores awesome? ;)

  3. Family, yes. Books, yes. Music, yes. Friends, yes. *scans back over post* Just yes to everything. :) Oh, yeah. Cheap books are AMAZING!!! :D

    Lovely tag answers, Blessing. :)

    1. Hehe, glad ya agree ;)

      Thanks Faith! :D

  4. Love these! Thrift book stores -- yesssssssssss. They get a bit dangerous, though. I've been known to fill a whole shopping cart with books. Eep.

    1. Yes! That and book fairs. We go with books to sell and come back with more books than we started with :P


Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
