My Favorite Things

When I'm having a hard time coming up with gift ideas for birthdays or holidays, I love to look at lists of other people's favorite things to give me ideas.  So I thought I'd put together my list in case it might help you out!
My Favorite Things List,

(Whenever I think of the phrase, "my favorite things", I always hear Julie Andrews in my head singing in The Sound of Music!  Anyone else?!)

Well, I don't have any brown paper packages tied up with string right now, but here are a few of my favorite things!
(some links are affiliate links)

My Favorite Things List, Bic Atlantis Pens,
Bic Atlantis Pens (blue) - These are my all-time favorite pens for everyday writing.  They are smooth and just the right thickness!

My Favorite Things List, Ink Joy Pens,          My Favorite Things List, Flair Pens,
Ink Joy and Flair pens just make writing more fun!  I love to use these on my calendar to color-code events, and when writing notes to students or parents.

My Favorite Things List, Fiskars Easy Action Scissors,

Fiskars Easy Action Scissors - The Spring-action design gently opens blades after each cut to reduce hand strain. These are so great when you have a ton of things to cut out!

My Favorite Things List, Biore Cleanser,
Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser - Comes in oily skin and acne formulas.

My Favorite Things List, iRobot Roomba,
iRobot Roomba 890 Robot Vacuum - This is the second Roomba we have owned and I LOVE IT!  I never thought I would have a robot vacuum my house for me, but the amount of time that I save not having to do it all on my own is amazing!  This Roomba has the rubber rollers that are so much easier to clean than the ones with the bristles.  The amount of hair and dirt/dust this thing picks up is pretty scary!

My Favorite Things List, Travel Cases by Heart & Hand,
3pk Travel Case - These bags from Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia are just adorable. (I actually got these for my sister but really wish I had grabbed a set for myself!)

Tazo Berryblossom White Tea - I love hot black tea in the morning, but this white tea is my afternoon treat!

My Favorite Things List, How to Win Friends & Influence People,
How to Win Friends & Influence People - This book should be required reading for everyone.  Such great practical advice for your every day life.

Smart Money Smart Kids - And pretty much any book written by Dave Ramsey! 

My Favorite Things List, Breaking Busy,
Breaking Busy - This book is a great wake-up call for everyone who is "busy".
