"My Favorite Things"

(by Julie Andrews) My Favorite Things - The Sound Of Music - 45th Anniversary Edition

My Favorite Things by Sound of Music on Grooveshark

Most of the moms from my MOPS table came over for a Favorite Things Party on Friday night!


We enjoyed great conversation & some of our favorite finger foods {& a yummy punch with instructions that made us laugh!}:


As for the favorite things part...each lady picked their favorite item {$5 limit} & brought enough to share with the rest of the girls.

{The items that weren't wrapped ~ or were wrapped in cellophane ~ were hidden under the "brown paper packages tied up with strings". I was totally going to try to incorporate a few more items that are in the lyrics of today's song, but that was the only one I accomplished. Fail.}


One of the Jessicas is from Germany, and she was unable to attend the party. But she sent her favorite thing anyways: yummy goodness from Germany + a Starbuck gift card {for a Pumpkin Spice Latte}!

The other items were equally super...leg warmers, wristlet key fob, lotion, nylon pan scrapers, magnetic notepad & pen, and items that one lady always has in her purse: lip balm, Advil, & tissues! :)

It was so much fun!! I enjoyed the part where we exchanged items, but I enjoyed the fellowship even more. I really have a wonderful group of ladies at my table! :)
{We missed you, Sal & Jessica!}

If you were coming to my Favorite Things Party, what would you bring?

That looks so fun. I can't believe the leg warmers were under $5 score! I wish I was a part of that!

Hmmm...I would have to bring chapstick, Reeses PB Cups, and maybe a cheap notepad and pen to make lists!! You know how we love to make lists!!
