Twisted Favorites!

I found a fun Favorite Things challenge on My Fam Five--list ten of your favorite things--but they all have to begin with the same letter (see, that's the "twisted" part)! Aubrey of Fam Five has issued me an "M" to work with. She had a really tough one--"I"-- and she made that happen, so hopefully I can come up with some good ones too.

My Favorite Things--"M" Edition:

1. My Chemical Romance--Okay that was an easy one! MCR is my all-time favorite band. I could go on and on about how much I love them and how much they have inspired me--but I'll spare you!

2. Marzipan--This is one of may favorite candies. I inherited the marzipan gene from my dad who was a hardcore marzipan fan. For those who haven't heard of it--it's made with almond paste, rose water and sugar and it's extra good covered in chocolate.

3. Monte--He was my sweet, sweet dog--my first Italian greyhound and truly the best dog ever! He lived to be sixteen and I will always miss him.

4. Mochi--These are little Asian treats made of rice flour and sugar. It's my favorite topping on my Pinkberry which is also one of my favorite things but doesn't begin with an M...

5. Movies in the Theater--I LOVE going to movies! Even bad ones in the theater are fun for me. By the way, I just got back from seeing Changeling with Angelina Jolie--what an emotional roller coaster that was!

6. Maki--As in sushi rolls maki. My very favorite is salmon skin roll. That's what I had for lunch today.

7. Mexican Coffee--This is coffee made with brown sugar, cinnamon and orange peel. SO good!!

8. Makeshift--One of my favorite words. I say it all the time.

9. Ma Bar by Lush--This is my favorite thing to take a bubble bath with. Smells kind of like brown sugar and makes lots of bubbles.

10. Month of May--This is such a fun month for me because it has my birthday, my anniversary, Mother's Day, Teddy's birthday and my niece and nephew's birthday. It's always really busy--but in a fun way!

Well there you have it! If anyone wants to do this Twisted Challenge let me know and I'll assign you a letter.

Have a great weekend!

I haven't heard of half those things. I am glad you described them, or I would have thought you were making stuff up!

Fun post!

Jen said...

Oooo, I want to try that Mexican coffee.

Ronda's Rants said...

Okay...I love coffee and I am trying to figure out how I have never had Mexican coffee...it sounds devine!

Shannon said...

You did a good job! Aub gave me the same challenge... but my letter is 'J'... I'm still working on my list!

Your May sounds like my October... my birthday, my dad's birthday, my wedding anniversary, aunt's birthday, uncle's birthday... then friends of ours, the husband and two kids all have bdays in October!

And I like seeing movies in the theater, too. Yes, watching a movie at home has its merits (no talking rude people and you can be in your jammies!)BUT there is something pretty great about seeing a film in the theater, especially when its a movie people are excited about seeing. Like seeing Twilight last night! Everyone cheering and clapping at Edward's first appearance... it was great.

Whew! Is this comment long enough for ya???? ;)

Sera said...

What a fun list. I don't even like coffee, but that Mexican coffee sounds yummy!

noble pig said...

I am a huge marzipan fan too! I love, love it...I've never found anyone who shares my love of it!

Jen B. said...

Oh... great list! I HAVE to try Mexican coffee - sounds delicious!

Mimi said...

All right Jen, I need something for today, so assign me a letter please!

Angie said...

How fun! Hmmmmm, marzipan, yumm!

CaraBee said...

That is fun! About once a year I decide I want a bubble bath but I never have the stuff, I'll have to pick up some of that Ma Bar.

mrsmouthy said...

And don't forget...you also love ME!!! (And I do too!!!)

Aubrey said...

Fun list! I haven't heard of a few of those so it was neat learning some new things. I'm going to have to find some of that yummy sounding Mexican Coffee!

Temple said...

You had me at Marzipan! :)

Heather said...

OOOOOOOOhhhhh, Mexican coffee is the BEST. I love it too.

Sera said...

Just responding to your post on my wall...You poor Sonic deprived woman! It's such a wonderfully amazing place. Breakfast served all day long. Happy hour 1/2 price drinks from 4-7. You can mix up flavors of drinks - like grape, orange, cherry slush. I'm tellin' ya, if you ever go on a trip or something and you see a Sonic, you need to pull over immediately. I highly recommend the chicken basket with Texas toast, fries and gravy, but I typically substitute tots for fries. Grape cream slush and lemon berry slush are the most yummy beverages.
