A Few of my (Non-Teaching Related) Favorite Things!

Persnickety Pickles is having a linky party of your top 7 non-teaching related favorite things.  Here are mine:

1.  Traveling
I love exploring new and exciting places, especially if they are warm and tropical.  This photo is from our hotel balcony in Cozumel, Mexico this February.  I am dying to get away again somewhere soon.  On my "dream vacation" list are: Greece, Dominican Republic, Spain & almost anywhere in South America, just to name a few!

2.  Havianas
These are the most comfortable flip flops in the world.  I LIVE in them all Summer!

3.  Shopping
I don't do it very often, but once in awhile I love to splurge on clothes and especially shoes!
4.  My Cat
This is so dorky, but I can't help it.  He has so much personality and keeps us laughing all the time.  He is snuggled up next to me as we speak.  In this picture, he's helping me with lesson plans!

5.  Reality TV
My new favorite channel is Bravo, but I will watch pretty much anything that is trashy and entertaining.  Jersey Shore, American Idol, Teen Mom, Bethenny Ever After... the trashy list goes on and on!

6. Cupcakes
I taught myself how to cook in college when I lived in a house with 24 girls and we cooked for each other a few times each semester.  I had to teach myself how to crank out huge quantities of food fast.  BUT, my true love has always been baking.  From cookies to banana bread, I will make anything at least once.  My new passion is cupcakes.  My best friend bought me this book for my birthday and I am obsessed!

7.  Reading
Between teaching and grad school, I don't have much time to read anymore, but reading for pleasure is definitely one of my favorite things.
