10 Things I Love & 10 Things I Hate

So I'm really liking lists of 10 Things lately, & I figured it would be fun to do a list of 10 Things I Love & 10 Things I Hate, so we can all get to know each other a little better!  So here we go:

10 I Love:
1. Peanut butter, this is one of my favorite things to eat ever!  Peanut butter ice cream, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter & chocolate, & more I love anything peanut butter.  I'm not picky between smooth or crunchy, but I am picky about the brand, I am a Skippy girl all the way.
2. Nordstrom, my favorite store.  As I've mentioned before I have been shopping here forever, & this is where my mom got all my clothes as a kid, my love has follwed me through pre teen & teen years, & is definitely following me into adulthood.  What's not to love about the department store?  You can get clothes, shoes, makeup, homegoods, and yummy food (seriously you can buy their delish salad dressing for like $6.00!).  My favorite roommate I have ever had, works here, & she's from Seattle so when she's home on break she gets to work (& shop) at the original Nordstrom, which is so cool!
3. New York, New York City, The Big Apple aka one of my favorite places in the world, & where I want to live when I'm done with school.
4. A Walk to Remember, both the book & movie are my favorite book & movie.  I have watched & read it a million times & would highly recommend doing both!
5. Shoes, they really make the outfit & I probably own about 100 pairs.  I cannot wait to get my hands on a pair of Louboutin's one day.
6. Nail polish, which is a considerably less expensive love then shoes, thankfully.  I favor OPI & Essie, & usually have to purchase a bottle when they come out with a new collection.  Check out my nail polish posts.
7. Mascara, my lashes the same color as my hair so they are basically invisible without it.  I've tried so many different types because I am very picky & so are my eyes (they're very sensitive).  This is by far #1 makeup must have. 
8. Peonies, these are my new favorite flower, they are gorgeous!
9. Sparkles, I'm kind of obsessed with these, I always joke that I'm like a baracuda - anything sparkly attracts me.
10.  My mom loves monograms & for years I have bucked her on this because I don't love my initials.  However, recently I have been bitten by the monogram bug & want my monogram on everything!  

10 I Hate:
1. Being woken up, anything sudden freaks me out & being woken up unexpectedly really upsets me, & I may have been known to cry when this happens.
2. Loud noises, see above, these scare me almost as much.
3. Cottage cheese, I really hate this.  My mom & friends really like it especially with fruit, but it just grosses me out - the taste, the texture, everything about this just rubs me the wrong way.
4. Humidity & I do not get along well.  I have a few health problems & humidity makes me fell awful, not to mention it makes my hair frizz & my skin shine, none of which I like.
5. Waiting a week for a good show to be on again, when you have a favorite show that you watch & it is so good, it is really hard to wait an entire week for the next episode to see what happens.  I'm not very patient & would love if a season could just play consecutively or every night I don't think that's too much to ask (hear that TV execs?).
6. Hangovers, there's nothing worse then having an amazing/fun/crazy night out with your favorite adult beverage of choice (& perhaps a lot of that beverage), & then waking up the next morning feeling like death.  I really wish that the amazing way you feel the night before (maybe minus the drunk part) could just carry over into the next day so you wouldn't have to pay for playing.
7. I am a huge baby & cannot watch scary movies, if I ever do (which is next to never), I never want to sleep again.
8. My biggest pet peeve is rude people, is it really that hard to say please, thank you, excuse me etcetera?  If everyone could just be polite the world would be a much better place.
9. Taking out the garbage, for some reason this just really, really bugs me.
10. Guinness.  This is my dad's beer of choice & I find it absolutely disgusting.  I like beer, just not this brew.

So now that you know how I feel about a few different things, do you love or hate any of the same things or maybe in the opposite order of me?

  1. I hate waiting for a show to come on again! That is why I secretly like recording the show and watching it days after it premieres...however sometimes this is ruined by Twitter spoilers!

  2. We used to have TiVo & I would always do that!!
