Favorite Things

23 Feb

My blog friend Danielle is hosting a Favorite Things Link up!

Here are a few of my favorite things:

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers

I have read this devotional almost every morning for the past 5 years and STILL love it.

All books by C.S. Lewis 

He was a genius. If I could meet anyone in person (besides Jesus Himself), Lewis would be the person I’d pick.

Nike Zoom Structure Triax

This is my 4th pair of these shoes and they still treat me well. Although, I recently read that the Mizuno Wave Riders are good for wide feet and high arches so I might look into those.

Quaker Oatmeal Squares

My favorite cereal EVER. But I only buy it when it’s on sale but it’s against my morals to buy a $5 box of cereal. Kidding.

My dogs

Even though I get frustrated with their bad behavior, I absolutely adore my furbabies. I think they’re the cutest dogs ever.

This race picture My Brooks Speedy Bullet Jacket

I have worn this jacket for every single run I’ve done outdoors in the past 4 weeks and have been surprised time and again at how well it keeps me warm, even though it is windbreaker thin. Worth all $108 I spent on it.

And that race pic from the Snowman Stampede last Saturday? Priceless. (Was I praying to not die? )

The Subaru Forester

I heart the newest version so much. And I feel so out of place in Colorado without a Subaru. That is the color I would want too. As soon as our Focus dies…


We’ve found two great places for sushi in Denver: Namiko’s in Arvada and Sushi Uokura in Golden. We almost always order a California roll, but I like to try new rolls and honestly, I have yet to have a sushi roll I didn’t like.


What are some of your favorite things? Head on over to Danielle’s blog and join the link up!

    I love this. It’s a fun look into your life, and it’s also a great way to get ideas about stuff I should try. 🙂 I’ve honestly never had that cereal, so I may need too. And that jacket…

    I also love C.S. Lewis. When my car met an early death last Christmas we spent awhile car shopping & got a Subaru. Mine’s an Outback, and I love her. I suppose they are probably a common sight in CO! I should really put together a “favorite things” of my own.

    Hahha, I LOVE that race pic!

    Your doggies are precious!

    If you ever make it to Georgia we can have a sushi date. I like to try new ones too, but I’m usually pretty boring and order a California & cucumber roll. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your faves!!
