Favorite Things

Favorite Internet Radio
Pandora is an Internet radio designed to play only the music you want to hear. When you log in you put in an artist or a song you like and then it creates a radio station of that artists and other artist that sound similar. For instances if I'm in the mood for some awesome New Wave I just pick my New Order station and it plays all New Order and others that sound like them. If I'm in a Funky mood I'll play my Earth Wind and Fire radio and if I need to mellow out I'll play Seal. Did I mention it's free. If you have Internet connection on your IPhone you can access Pandora anywhere.

Favorite gum
I have become addicted to the fantastic flavors Orbit has like Fruitini, Sangria, and Maui Melon pictured above. I pretty much quit chewing gum until I tried these new flavors now I have to buy a pack or two every time I'm at the store. Try it you'll likey.

I adore accolades, who doesn't?
Thank you Millie I think you rock!

Favorite Sandals

I bought these awesome sandals in June they are called Fit Flops. They are supposed to help you burn more calories when you walk, I don't know if that is true but they are the most comfortable sandals ever. I have worn them everyday since I bought them. I'll be so sad when it gets too cold to wear them.

Favorite Vice Presidential Candidate EVER!

Don't be jealous I've seen her in person. That's all I'm going to say about that, I'm way too chicken to talk politics on my blog.

Trips with El Jefe.

El Jefe and I were in Virginia last week for a Hotel convention. I have to admit that Virginia was not on my list of places I wanted to visit but it was so beautiful and steeped with early American history. We stayed in Colonial Williamsburg a few nights where the convention was held. I've never seen any place like it. It's what I always imagined the English countryside to look like. I was thrilled because England is on my list. The Today show was there last Wednesday because it's a battleground state. We woke up early on Wednesday and got ready to go down there so we could say we saw Matt Lauer in the flesh and possibly get our mugs on T.V. Then we turned the T.V. and saw how many people were there and said forget about it.
We also went to Yorktown Va. where the last battle of the Revolutionary War took place. We went on the life changing tour ( that's what the tour guide called it) of the Battlefield. To hear how basically everything went right for the Patriots and everything went wrong for the English at that time makes one realize that it had to be divine intervention that we won that war. God Bless America!
Then we stayed two nights in Virginia Beach. We stayed right on the beach which would have been fantastic but the whole time there was 45 mph winds and rain like I have never seen it rain before. Surprisingly it was still above 70 degrees and the water was warm. Who knew Virginia had a warm beach ? I didn't.

Stayed tuned for my next post about why I have the most awesome parents in the World.

Oh I just read Physcokity's comment and I thought I was being all clever because I went there as a kid and we saw a bazillion t-shirts that said that! I should read comments first! :(

Millie is right. You do rock!

maria singing "these are a few of my favorite things" was in my head and now i am headbanging to millions of peaches. ya! ya!

anyway..i LUUUUVE pandora and have it up a lot. except now i just love playing all my playlists when i have some downtime. sometimes i find stuff on pandora that i'm like "skip, no thank you."

and those flavors you mentioned of orbit gum have made me curious to try it..even though i'm not a gum chewer.

I see my award!!!

Virginia is gorgeous. So glad you and El Jefe had fun!


I saw your Fit Flops up close and personal!


I hope you stayed in one of those awesome Civil War era hotels that advertise ghostly hauntings and strange movements out on the battlefields at night.


It's never too early to get that Halloween mojo going. Besides, American History ghosts are the best!

My American History teacher in high school was a creepy touchy-feelyzombie, sadly. i would have preferred a ghost.

Interesting post... Looks like solid state memory is really beginning to become more popular. Hopefully we'll start seeing decreasing solid state harddisk prices soon. 5 dollar 32 gig Micro SDs for your Nintendo DS flash card... sounds gooooood.
