My sister has another one of her photo hunt challenges going on and this one is nice and easy – Favorites. Which isn’t to say this slacker got right on top of it and dutifully took all these photos with the assignment in mind. But, since I tend to take pictures of my favorite things anyway, it all worked out.
Okay, one of my new favorite things is Instagram, which was recently released for Android users. I already love the camera on my smart phone, and Instagram just makes it a little more lovable. I love the filters which help give my phone pictures a little extra something. So, all of these photos were taken with my phone and processed with Instagram.
The first picture is obviously two of my favorite things/favorite photo subjects – Ozzie and Kitteh, reluctant buddies. She drives him crazy and tries to push him around, but they seem to have come to a mostly amiable peace.
And this is a food blog, and of course I like to bake, so these chocolate chip cookies had to make the cut. If you give me dessert choices of cakes, pies, ice creams, brownies or cookies, I am going to pick cookies every time. These particular cookies were made with Alton Brown’s muffin method recipe, which is one of my favorites because I don’t even have to fire up the stand mixer. And, I made them with KerryGold butter, one of my favorite dairy products!
This is my favorite way to sweat off those cookies – Saturday morning hot yoga!
After all that sweating, it is important to hydrate! Okay, vodka is not the best way to hydrate, but this cocktail in a nice crystal glass on a sunny Friday evening, that’s definitely one of my favorite things.
Spring! That’s another favorite thing, and so is this dogwood tree in my backyard near my garden. It’s kind of a sad litle tree that is all hunched over, but every year it blossoms for us anyway. Seriously, how pretty is that?
And finally, for bonus points, one of my favorites and Karen’s favorite things. And now it is time to wrap this thing up because one of my other favorite things starts in 19 minutes – Mad Men. Somebody get me one of those cocktails!
