Raindrops on Roses….


You know the song and I’ve had this post in my head for the last few weeks. 


Oprah’s got a list.

Cindy’s got a list.

And I’ve got a list.


Allow me to introduce to you, a few of my new favorite things:



1.   Meet my new morning BFF made by Keurig.  This is a single serve coffee system and brews a STEAMING hot cup of coffee, tea or cocoa in mere seconds!  This little invention is right up there with the DVR!





2.  My feet are pretty happy about these next little gems.  They are Rainbow Sandals, the latest and greatest shoe craze among the generation I refer to as “kids”.  Which would include anyone in college and below! 

The pair I bought has what Rainbow refers to as a “double layer” arch support, which is so much better than just plain ol’ flat flip flops.  They are a little more expensive than, say, Yellow Box flip flops; however, they come with a sole guarantee.  If I could wear these to work, I would!







3.  This next item will probably result in harassment from people who actually know me, but I don’t care.  For my birthday month, I got a coupon in the mail for $20 off any Vera Bradley item.  And quite frankly I needed a new purse.  So I thought why not get something cute, so I did.

The print I chose matches NOTHING I own.  Come to think of it I’m not sure any of their prints do.  If I may Ms. Bradley, I’d like to throw out a suggestion right here.  How about a Madras Plaid collection for the LL Bean girls of the world???  Would that be too much to ask?

Meet my “Purple Punch Hipster” :




Thank you, thank you very much. 



Now, you tell me a few of your favorite things!

I've had a pair of Rainbow flip flops since I was in 8th grade...and yes, they're still wearable!

I also LOVE them...they're so comfy!

SOOO behind. I haven't heard about Rainbow flip flops til now. I adore flip flops so I will be looking into those.

And my oldest and I looked at that exact purse today. She loved it!

I like your post way better than mine. Pictures are always better. :) I got the same Keurig for my bday last week! Where do you get your coffee?

I do love #1 as well and I will have to take a look at those flip flops. That double arch thing is calling my name! I recently retired my Vera Bradley purse but I do like them. Great list!

Thanks for the post! I am currently looking for flip flops and your post came in such a great time. I also need something with good arch support because I am always on the go.
