Although this is my blog with my own thoughts, I’m not sure that y’all know me. You don’t know my favorite color, which could be guessed, you don’t know my favorite flower, you don’t know what I love and what I hate. I don’t want to stress what I don’t like, though, so here are a few of my favorite things!
My favorite color is pink.
I love the color pink because it is girly, it reminds me of princesses, I associate the color with happiness, and I think that it is a truly beautiful color. Second in line would be purple and blue. I like most of my colors to come in pastels, though, like Easter!
My favorite month is December.
December is my birthday month, so obviously this has some pull on my decision of my favorite month, but I also love December because of the weather and the season. I love the season of giving, I love that we all celebrate Jesus’ birth, and I love how families come together at this time of year. December is typically colder than the rest of the months, too, so this makes me extra happy!
My favorite food is chicken nuggets or a salad.
Yes, I am aware that these are two polar opposite foods… If I’m in a restaurant and there are chicken nuggets available, you best be betting that I will order those. I just love chicken in general, in fact, it is my favorite type of protein/meat. I like salads because they are so easy and everywhere and everyone has salads. They are totally customizable and I just love how pretty and colorful they can be.
I love to bake.
For me, baking is like a stress reliever. I love to bake alone or with someone. I really enjoy making cakes, but cookies and cupcakes are fun to make, too. I also really love that after baking a cake, I can share it with all of my friends! Everyone loves cake, right?
I love to eat fruit.
I would say that my favorite fruit is an apple. I like Golden Delicious apples or Honeycrisp apples. I usually always have them in my house/dorm and I probably eat at least one a day! I cut mine into 8ths or 16ths, into little slices, like a little kid! I also like oranges, bananas, avocados, but not mangoes or peaches!
I love to color and do crafts.
This is where my little kids comes out of me. I think this is part of the reason that I want to become a teacher. I love to color and make crafts, even though I may color outside of the lines or my projects may not be Pinterest worthy!
I am so excited to become a teacher.
At Samford, I am studying to be an elementary school teacher. I am so excited to teach when I am older because I will have such a great impact on these little one’s lives. I love not only how cute these little munchkins are, but I also love how each child has their own personality and quirks. Each child has something special about him/her, and I really love to find out what that special something is.
My favorite flowers are either peonies or hydrangeas.
Yes, I know, basic, right? I love peonies because they are so fluffy and light, and pink! I love how simple they are without even trying if that makes any sense! I love hydrangeas mostly because of the beautiful coloring. The blue hydrangeas are my favorite because the color is so vivid! I also love how there are so many little flowers that make up a big whole bouquet that is stunning. Alone, the individual flower bud is not that impressive, but together, the flowers create something beautiful. My favorite flower to buy just on a whim, though is an Alstromeria (weird name, right? Look it up and I’m sure the flower will look familiar!).
My favorite clothing shops are Athleta, Gap, J.Crew, and Free People.
There isn’t really anything to say here, besides that these are my favorite stores that I like to shop at!
My favorite type of donut is a munchkin.
Typically, I will go straight for the glazed munchkins, but I also love the pink-frosted-with-rainbow-sprinkles-donut. Either or is fine by me.
My favorite artists are Francesca Battistelli, Taylor Swift, Sam Hunt, the Newsboys, and The High School Musical Cast.
Wow, I’m sorry that I’m so lame. Yes, I really do love HSM so much and if you ask me any day to watch all three in a marathon with you, you bet I’ll be there with some popcorn.
I love to travel.
Weirdly enough, I love plane rides, but I hate the airport, mainly because of security. I get super stressed out at the airport. I love to travel and explore new places, though!
My ultimate favorite store is Target.
Enough said. Target has anything and everything.
I enjoy grocery shopping.
Just like baking, I find grocery shopping relaxing. I love to go grocery shopping. I don’t know what about it that makes me like it so much, but I just love it! I especially love waking up early (8 AM-ish) to go grocery shopping- I used to do this with my mom when I was little!
I love to chew ice.
Some might find this annoying (ahem, Emma), but it is just a bad habit, I guess. I love to chew ice when I am bored and yeah, that’s it.
I love to read.
When I have time, that is. I really love to read series, and it is good for building vocabulary! I originally started to read for the mere purpose of expanding my vocabulary, but now, I love it! It is way better than watching Netflix, although I am guilty of this.
I love to watch movies.
Ask my roommate how many times I asked to watch movies with her. I love to watch movies, but not alone. I like watching movies with at least one person. I pretty much like any type of movie, just not scary movies! My favorite movies are HSM (all three of them, but the third is my favorite), Planes (yes, I love this movie- I cried), Frozen, Soul Surfer, Camp Rock, A Cinderella Story (the Hilary Duff one), The Last Song, Life as We Know It, Pitch Perfect, Tangled, and 21 Jump Street (22 Jump Street, too). Wow, that’s a lot of movies, but hey, I warned you! Another warning, if the movie is confusing, I will be that person that talks and asks a bunch of questions, sorry!
I like Miley Cyrus.
I will probably get some hate from this, but Hannah Montana really just had a good impact on me. No, I’m not joking. I love Hannah Montana and although, yes, I think that Miley Cyrus is a little crazy, I think I will always admire her and like her. I might not agree with everything that she does, but she still rocks.
My favorite type of cookie is a chocolate chip cookie.
Mmmm, I love cookies. I also love cookie dough. A chocolate chip cookie is just so wonderful. I also like those sugary cookies from the Starbucks in Barnes & Noble. Now those are really good. I also really like Monster Cookies, without nuts though!
My favorite thing about God is his sovereignty and mystery.
I really love God. I hope that you do, too! I love that God is in control of every situation and everything that is happening. Everything that He does works for the better in our lives, no matter if we think otherwise. One of the most annoying things, but also the greatest thing is His mysterious ways. God is unexplainable and indescribable. He keeps us waiting, but it is always worth it! He knows us so very personally, he knows what we are thinking and feeling before we even feel it. It is just so awesome. He is so awesome. Although He is mysterious in His ways, I’m so glad that He is in control instead of me being in control. If I got everything that I prayed for, needless to say, I would be a train wreck.
I love to paint my nails.
I have a lot of nail polish, like a lot of nail polish. It is kind of embarrassing, but whatever. I really like to paint my nails, and after a lot of practicing, I can say that I am pretty good at painting my nails! When I have time, I like to paint my nails. In high school at one point, I painted my nails and changed the color every single day!
I don’t like curse words.
I know that this doesn’t really categorize under my favorite things, but I guess it can because I love people who can refrain from using bad words. I don’t think that it is very attractive to use curse words, and I think that it is awesome when people can swap out a curse word for a different term that better describes their emotions. I sound like a mom or something, but oh well!
I don’t like to be alone.
So here’s the thing. I don’t like being alone, but at the same time, I don’t like to talk all of the time, too. Sometimes I just like to sit in silence with someone else. If I’m driving in my car, I usually like to call someone on the phone to have a conversation or to catch up. Sometimes, I do like to be alone, like when I’m upset, or when I am grocery shopping (sometimes), but I typically like to have company, as long as I am already friends with that person. I kind of don’t like meeting new people because I won’t talk a lot and I find it hard to express myself sometimes. I find it easier to express myself through writing or actions than through my words.
I like to write letters.
Simple enough. I like to write letters. As I said before, I like to express myself through my writing and actions versus words, so this makes sense, right?
I love small acts of kindness.
I love the little things in life. For me, they mean so much and they really do make a huge impact. Something as simple as helping someone with their groceries, or opening a door for someone is really nice and special to me.
This post turned out to be way longer than I meant for it to be, but I hope that now you might get a better sense of who I am!
