It may seem silly, but I never leave the house with out mascara on my lashes. I've been known to have dark circles under my little peepers since I was a little tot, and mascara helps to disctract from that. So my pick for quite some time now has been L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black. If you don't like spider eyes but long lashes, this is the stuff for you.
I could very well be obsessed with candles, and my favorite are White Barn Candle Company. They run sales all the time so you can get like 2 for the price of one and they always have new scents. My current favorite for Christmas time is 'Tis the Season'.I tried for quite some time to find a less expensive alternative to this next one but every boot I tried fell apart or lost its shape. After months of walking through the snow in ballet flats, I got fed up and asked for these boots for Christmas. If I had bought these boots myself, I would say that these are the best purchase I've ever made, and every winter I thank God for these boots. Ugg Boots. I'm not sure what it is but I love these cups. I find that I've been drinking like 70% more water everyday. My complexion has been thanking me. You can get them 2 for $10 at Macy's right now, which is exactly what Isaac and I did.
Moleskines. Isaac and I bought a few of these for our wedding vow ceremony, and I love mine. They are such awesome quality.
Have you ever tried working out with your Ipod and the Ipod headphones fall out or feel like they are going to fall out alllll the time? Problem solved. Sony Earbuds fit inside your ear and stay in there. They also block out sound. It's so nice.
In high school, my friend Katie would have these little babies in candy jars all over her house. Her grandma would fly big packs of them from Germany because they didn't sell them in the US yet and we would eat tons of them! But much to my eternal happiness, they now sell them in big packs at most grocery stores! Let it be noted that these are the only gummy bears I will touch.
I may not be rich like Oprah and give people 2012 VWs but One Lucky Reader will get a White Barn Candle! So tell me, what are a few of YOUR favorite things?

Don't worry, we got an extra pack for ourselves. We won't be serving you these straws.

so I cut some circles from a pink fabric I picked up, grabbed a few earring clips (because I couldn't find shoe clips) and found needle and thread (which is actually really hard to find in our house... we apparently aren't very domestic).
After a half hour, I had these...

No matter how small or silly the request, God has still shown himself through all of this and has been with me through this entire planning process, guiding me to exactly the right places at exactly the right times. I feel so blessed :-)
