Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kit...oh, who am I kidding?

It's been a really crappy couple of weeks. Really crappy. Bad weather, bad interviews, bad allergies, the list goes on. All of this bad reached it's culmination last weekend when my sister suffered a miscarriage at nearly five months. It made every other bad thing seem insignificant. I travelled home for an undetermined amount of time to do exactly what she needed me to do: sit, wait, cry, hold her hand, watch movies, clean her fridge (another blog, another time), and look for the silver lining.

Looking for the silver lining turned my attention from sadness to sunshine and made me seek out what it is that truly make me smile. So, here you go...these are a few of my favorite things:

My nephew. Joss. The J-Bear. He is amazing. Smart, funny, silly and cute to boot. I let him eat marshmallows for breakfast.

Being driven around. I hate driving. I'm not very good at it, either. This must be why I often opt for a cab.

Sunglasses. All of them. The bigger and darker the better. I like that no one can see my eyes.

Dairy. Sure, I'm lactose intolerant, but I like a little guilty pleasure and a Mocha Frappuccino every once in a while is totally worth it.

Motown. Those who know me well are aware of my Diana Ross obsession.

Clean bedding. I love the feeling of crawling into a bed just made with freshly laundered sheets. I also spray my comforter and pillows with lavender vanilla Febreeze before I put the duvet and pillow cases on. One more thing: before I get in to said clean bed, I have to take a shower and wash my hair.

Swear words. A high school/Facebook friend got me thinking about this today. He used the term "effin" in his status. I quickly posted a short rant about my appreciation for a well-timed, appropriate dropping of the F-bomb. I like 'em. I just do. I received validation when he then posted what he really wanted to say. Made me smile.

Genuine people. I don't care if you're outspoken, brash or even a little bit rude, just don't be fake. Be real with me. I like seeing who people really are. My friends run the gamut: bitches, douchebags, dumbasses, smartasses, princesses, possessors or superiority complexes, eternal optimists, realists, cynics, pushovers, you name it. I like all of them for who they are.

Television. I really like television. I especially like watching it late at night when it's too late to vacuum or walk around my neighborhood, which, incidentally, happen to be two more of my favorite things.
