10 Favorite Things

Today I want to share 10 of my favorite things that I enjoy in life. My first list of the year.

  • Movies – I love watching movies. Mostly action movies.
  • Gummy Bears – Don’t judge me! I’ve cut back, but I try to keep at least one pack in the house.
  • Football – I’ve loved football since I was in Germany. Think I was in middle school when I started watching, but fell in love with it later in high school.
  • Dance videos – No, I’m not a dancer, but I enjoy watching those that do. It gives me life. I might attempt the easier routines or try the ones made for exercise. (I.e. Zumba is one example)
  • Site Seeing – It doesn’t matter where I go, I can almost find something to go see. I will even tour my own city like a tourist. You’ll be amazed at what you find. Try it!
  • Writing – I don’t write as much, but I’m getting back to my love. Poetry is one of top things to write followed by blogging.
  • Spoken Word – A good show is always good for the mind and body. It’s always a joy just to listen to all that raw talent.
  • Reading – This is another thing I’m trying to build back up. A good book can be read in a day or two.
  • Jewelry – I’ve always loved picking up a cute accessory, especially earrings and rings. Now that I see it, I’m falling in love with a lot more styles and colors. Let me go place an order! ūüėĀ
  • Photography – I’ve been in love with taking pictures since middle school. Yep, Germany again. How can you not like taking pictures in such a pretty country.

    Favorite Food/Dish

    ‚ÄčMy favorite food is lasagna, spaghetti, pizza and some good barbeque. LOL Yes I’m that simple. I love bread too. French bread, garlic bread, bbq bread. I don’t do wheat bread though for various reasons. 

    Of course, because those are my favorite, I try not to limit myself to those. I do try new things. For instance, I was really into the crock pot dishes for about a year or so. One of my favorite I’ll share with you today.
    “Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops” 
    The original recipe calls for boneless pork chops, 1 can of cream of chicken, 1 package of dry ranch dressing. 
    I also added: seasoning to the meat, fresh onion and bell pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Cook low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

    We’ve also done boneless chicken and it was just as good.

    Fall TV

    Fall is a time for cooler weather (in most locations), football (for sports fans), and fall season premier tv shows! You maybe wondering why I’m choosing to discuss fall shows only. It’s simple, that’s when the best shows air! Yes, there are dune decent shows throughout the year on all stations, but fall is by far the best. 

    Most of my shows air on CBS, but a few are on ABC & NBC as well. I typically only add one or two new ones,not much more. Here’s my list:

    • NCIS (Eager to see where they go with the exit of Denizo)
    • NCIS Los Angeles
    • NCIS New Orleans
    • Criminal Minds (Eager to see how they develop it without Derek.)
    • Criminal Minds Beyond Borders
    • Grey’s Anatomy (Losing interest in the show.)
    • Lucifer
    • Blindspot
    • Quantico

    New shows that I’m looking forward to checking out include:

    • Bull
    • MacGyver

    As I stated before, you see I’m not really adding new shows. The reason I love hulu during fall is I can see the shows the next day (except CBS) the next day. These shows and football is my lineup for fall. 

    What shows are you looking forward to the most?

    “Red & Black”

    “My Favorite Color”

    I don’t have one favorite color. I actually have two. ¬†They are red and black. ¬†I fell in love with those colors in the 9th grade back in Germany. ¬†The school colors at Giessen High School was red and black. ¬†I just loved the way they looked together.

    Now as I’ve gotten older, I still find that I absolutely love those colors still. ¬†Love them so much I have to force myself to wear and buy other colors!!! ¬†I always drift to those. ¬†I love they way they look on me too. ¬†So that’s an added bonus too. ¬†I’m doing better with adding more colors, but those will always be my all time favorites!!

    (Not in any specific order)

    1. Shani Greene-Dowdell — She’s a local author that is always striving to do even better. ¬†Her books have drama and a taste of erotica that’s not overwhelming in either department. ¬†She also masters using local areas in her book to help readers really get the full picture.

    2. Eric Jermone Dickey — He grabs your attention from the start and keeps it through the book. ¬†When he does action, oh boy, it is action packed. ¬†When he ventures into erotica, can we STEAMY, cross your legs steamy!!! ¬†He just keeps getting better and better too.

    3. Carl Weber — If you like drama, then he’s your author. ¬†He takes events from real life and turn it into books. ¬†That I can see because the drama be so real. ¬†You either love or hate the characters in his stories.

    7. Marissa Monteilh — I just love her books. ¬†It doesn’t matter if it’s her drama books or her erotic books under the name Pynk. ¬†She keeps you on your toes. ¬†She’s another author that uses a lot of local places too to keep readers grounded.
