Remembering a Few of My Favorite Things

You all know the song- “These are a few of my favorite things”- which somehow became a Christmas song, which is why I started thinking about some of my favorite things.  And it hit me that most of my favorite THINGS aren’t really THINGS at all, but rather ACTIONS.  I thought of some of my most memorable times in my conscious memory- most of them included multiple of my favorite “things”.

These are really in no particular order…

  • Church ski trip in high school and stopping at the first rest stop that had snow to have a snowball fight.
  • Fun ‘n’ Sun concert 2009, a day full of sun, beer, friends, and live country.
  • Seaworld beer school and Halloween Horror Nights 2008 and singing karaoke in the queues entertaining all the drunks.
  • Walking in to TGIFridays on my 23rd birthday to find all my friends waiting there to surprise me.
  • Easter 2009- drinking games on Clearwater Beach followed by a nice nighttime swim/hot tub party.
  • Islands of Adventure with 8 of my good friends and just being generally goofy.
  • Eighth grade Epcot trip where we got to play a murder mystery game and see N’Sync perform Christmas songs live in a small intimate concert.
  • Swing dancing to Flogging Molly live on the side of a hill in 50 degree weather.
  • Attending a “Bal du Pompier” in Paris for Bastille Day in 2003.

And of course there are numerous “This one time at Busch Gardens/Dallas Bull/Castle …” moments- which were almost all awesome, but the things you do regularly tend not to stand out as much (or I’d be listing my whole life on here!)

The ultimate example I can think of for describing to you my favorite things is….

Drinking Guinness and line dancing to live music inside an Irish pub inside a theme park with one of my best friends. Ultimate win.  I’m pretty sure the only thing that would make this better would be adding  “…in another country” to the end of it.  But my goal will be to top it.
