These are a few of my favorite things...

Look at the adorable vintage planter I just got.
He's so cute I just want to make doe-eyes at him all day. I have enough knitting needle holders now, so he may become the keeper of the pencils.

Another one of my favorite things lately is staring at socks. I recently discovered Sock-Dreams and I am completely hooked. The socks are really cute, good quality, and reasonably priced. And there's free shipping!
I've already received four orders, and I'm about to place my fifth. When I'm not actually ordering socks, I spend my time trying to come up with outfits that will show them off (or, when I can't, hiking up my pant legs and demanding that people gaze at the glory of the socks), and I even read their sock blog. I know I should be ashamed to admit that, and yet I'm at peace with it.
The photos below are a sampling of my glorious new sock collection (note: those aren't my knees - the photos are from the sock-dreams website).

Oh, and one more favorite thing - Friday Night Lights.
I'm not a sports fan, and I'm extra not a football fan, but this show has completely won me over. The first episode was football-heavy, and I didn't think the show was going to be for me, but by the end of the second one I was so caught up in the characters that I would have continued watching them even if it was a show about....well, actually, I can't think of anything I dislike more than football, and still I love this show. Every episode has something so funny that I laugh out loud and something so moving that I'm often found dabbing my eyes and claiming that the room has gotten dusty. It's one of those shows where I want to re-watch each episode as soon as it ends, and then I start pining for the next one to come out. If you haven't been watching and want to jump in, you can watch all of the episodes to date online at their website.

Those socks are wonderful. Maybe I really need to rethink my stance on socks and skirts.

I love those socks, but I couldn't help notice all the models have their knees together. Maybe they're birth-control socks!
