I was tagged by my sweet friend, DaniJoy at Taking The Gospel 2 Gijon! We're supposed to list 6 of our favorite unimportant things! I really liked this tag, and enjoyed sharing some of my faves! You should try it, but I have to admit, it's not as easy as it seems!

1. I don't know why this picture came out so yellowish, but at least you can still see my Clorox Green Works natural all purpose cleaner! This was my first step in "going green" and I can tell you that this is my favorite cleaner to use! It cleans everything from the kitchen counter to the bathroom mirrors! I can't imagine going back to anything else! That bottle is almost empty, but no worries, I got a full one under the kitchen sink!
2. Ahh..I gotta have my Coconut Creamer! When I notice the bottle is almost empty, I start to get in panic mode! Can you imagine how devastated I am when they run out of it at the grocery store? The first thing that comes to my mind is, "I hope it's not discontinued!" I know..psycho! I will drink any coffee just as long as I have this in it!
3. My scanner! Without this bad boy I wouldn't be able to scan all those awesome pre-digital photos for my Friday meme, "Friday Photo Flashback!"
4. There's just something about sweet cherries on a hot summer day! My mom bought these for us, and I could not wait to rinse 'em up and eat them! It brings back memories of me being in the car with her when I was a teenager, and she would pull off to the side of the road to buy some if the cherry stand was open!
5. I know that I said I would drink any coffee just as long as I had the above said creamer in it. Well, that's not 100% true. Let me clarify. It can be any coffee, but it has to be coffee from Starbucks! We try all the different flavors, but my favorite is the Verona! YUM!
6. Last but not least, I love candles! I don't care where they came from or what brand they are. I just love how relaxed they make me feel!

So, there ya have it! Thanks Dani Joy, for tagging me! I had fun doing this! Now, if you want to share your unimportant faves, consider yourself tagged!

I have been wanting to try those new cleaners and just haven't bought any yet...maybe I'll pick some up today! I LOVE fresh cherries YUM! And you know...I'm not much of a candle person. I have a few around for decorations, but I rarely ever light them!!

Sara said...

I use that cleaner too.. it's great! And, I tried the coconut creamer and I am IN LOVE! I just ran out this morning, on my second cup, and had to use my old creamer, and it doesn't taste as good!! WWWAAAAAAA!

I feel the EXACT same way about my chocolate Raspberry Coffee Mate lol. Coconut is a close second but I'm always worried I'll go to the store one day and there will be no more purple bottles. :P

Hi Alicia,
Kamusta =)
Glad you stopped by! I love your proile and really taken by your faith.

My mom loves coffee mate. Everytime I send a BALIKBAYAN box home, there's always a coffee mate!

I love sweet cherries, too.

Have a great weekend.

I really got to know you better through this! I love candles too! You have some really nice ones! I love how you have them teared there on your table next to your picture.

Love coffee creamer too. My fav is hazelnut but alas none of that here in Spain. (that I know of yet)oh and now it has to be sugar free. LOL

so are you totally green?

well, I have totally missed my Sunday nap by catching up on my e mails just from my comments on my blogs. This is a good thing. I love hearing from you and I love you did this tag with me. I would love to start a meme too but then I would have to think of something to write for it every time. LOL

Laura said...

You and your creamer crack me up! You are too cute. Those cherries looks delicious!!!! I might need to add some to my grocery list! ;)
