"It's my favorite and my best"
"Charlie" said Lola, "I do love pink milk; it's my favorite and my best!"
~from Lauren Child's Charlie and Lola book series
Here are a few of my "favorite" and "bests" this week:
Food: skip gleefully, don't walk to your local Trader Joes where you can spoonfeed yourself a creamy, thick Greek Style Pomegranate yogurt (followed closely by the fire roasted tomato salsa... but not in rapid succession, that's just asking for a bellyache!)
Blogs: The Artful Parent There is a whole lot of fun going on at their "messy party"
Jewelry: This little number from The Farm Chicks The Spring Burst one made my mothers day all the sweeter by adding vintage wallpaper to my necklace collection
Show: What the hell is going on with Whitney and Spencer? Why is Stephanie putting up with all his couch potato-ness and the eating of all the turkey? Yes people... I am an avid closet fan of "The Hills". So shoot me... (but first check out those fabulous black pumps that Lauren Conrad was wearing this week)
Cause: Setting the Sun on Melanoma, a fundraising walk this fall organized by my sweet amazing sister in law (who happens to double as one of my most favorite and best people) who lost her mother last September. A cause so near and dear to our own hearts after losing my own mother in law to the same tragic cancer.
Song: this one sung loud and proud (in my head, I'm shy about singing)
Book: Mary Oliver, Red Bird That woman sure as hell can rock out with nature in the most serene and observant poetry. ever.
Quote: The reference to a spent dandelion, made by my wonderific and follicularly challenged friend Jen: here (Happy Birthday Jennifer!!!)
