25 of My Favorite Things

Just a few days until I turn 25 and so I thought that I'd give you all a list of 25 of my favorite things, in no particular order :)

1. Books 
(Pretty much everything book related, book stores, libraries...)
2. Notebooks. 
I buy way too many of them, and I rarely finish them, because each new one has so many possibilities and then once I've written in it I feel like I've ruined all that potential.
3. Pens. 
Especially Pentel Energel pens. And the R.S.V.P. pens. Plus anything that sparkles. I like sparkles.
4. In fact, sparkles should make the list. Sparkles.
I know pretty much everyone hates sparkles (well most boys), but I'm pretty grateful that when I told the Captain that sparkles were part of the deal and that if he hated them he'd have to leave that he didn't dump me then and there.
5. Small things. 
This one is probably weird, but I think it's part of always wanted to be small, I always wanted to be tiny, life is some kind of cruel joke that I ended up 5' 9". But my laptop is tiny and I pretty much love it. 

6. Breakfast. 
But only at breakfast, or if we're eating out. You can't have breakfast for dinner at home. It's just wrong.
7. Change.
Like of the metal variety. When I was a kid I wanted to take my 20$ that I got for my birthday and get it all in quarters because it makes me feel richer to have change. I would rather break a dollar than spend my change.
8. Purses.
Ever since I was kid I spent pretty much all my allowance on purses. It's a thing. I'm a bag kind of girl.
9. Drive In movies.
You've got to bring home made popcorn and lots of pillows and blankets :)
10. Chapstick
This is probably more of an addiction than a favorite thing, but I do have my favorite kind. Chapstick brand with moisturizer. I do not understand the people who like carmex. For seriously.

11. Running.
It's odd and sometimes it's really hard, but I really love it.

12. Pool
As in billiards. A friend of mine and I played for literally at least 2 hours every day in college and it is the best.

13. Hiking. 
I used to hate hiking until I got in good enough shape that I didn't feel like I was dying. Now it is the best!

14. Handlettering
I'm still not very good at it, but it is so much fun. If you want to do it, you should try it :)
15. Poetry
This probably falls under books, but I also love writing it. 
16. Photography
My whole family has been into photography since forever, but I'm starting to really enjoy it and I've started following a ton of photography accounts on instagram.
17. Cologne
A man who smells good... there are no words

18. Adventure
I love just going and not knowing what's going to happen.
19. Blogging
This is one of my very favorite things
20. Fashion
I do not always wear the most fashionable things, and usually spend all of my clothing money on purses, but I would really seriously get into fashion if I had money and the self control not to spend it all on bags ha ha
21. Instagram
It is probably my most favorite social network.
22. Wax seals, letters, and packages in the mail
They're my favorite kind of present because no one has to awkwardly watch you open them.

23. Food
I love cooking and eating and I definitely love the food network. 

24. Temples
They're just so pretty and awesome and I just love going every week.

25. The Ocean
If I could go to the ocean every day, I don't know that I would ever forget it or take it for granted. 

Ok, I'm totally going to cheat and be cheesy and add a number 26. It kind of counts because this will be my 26th year of life. 
26. The Captain

If you couldn't tell from reading my blog, he is my very favorite thing. The end. 

What are some of your favorite things? There are a lot of things that I didn't put on the list. That deserved to make it, but maybe next year ;)
