Blogger's Favorites (Sort Of) -- Audrey...

So true she's not actually a blogger, but it's her week, so I'm breaking the rules a bit. Audrey and I have been discussing this post all week...let's just say she had a hard time narrowing it down, but after much pondering, she came up with her absolute favorite things.

Herewith Audrey's list. Enjoy and have a great week-end!



The Beach -- I'm not sure sure she loves the "beach" so much as she loves our annual beach trip. Inevitably after an hour or so playing in the surf, she complains of sand in her bathing suit, and we have to head up to the bookstore, the pool or set out on a bike ride. But this is her list and she said "the beach", so the beach it is...

Her Sister -- Despite all the bickering, taunting and general big sisterly behavior toward Millie, Audrey still declares her one of her all time favorite "things". Sweet...

The Beatles-- She LOVES The Beatles-- words can't describe. We have to listen to them non-stop. She's a fan of the Sgt. Pepper era more than the early stuff (thank goodness). For the record, her favorite Beatle is Paul and her favorite song is Hey Bulldog (she insisted I include this.)

Chocolate Cake
-- Those of you who happen to know Audrey in real life are probably wondering why this isn't at the very top of the list... The child is nuts for chocolate in general but chocolate cake is her nirvana.


Making Art -- Audrey draws, paints, colors... non-stop. She wants to be an artist when she grows up, and she takes this stuff v. seriously!

Playing Dress-Up -- Besides making art, this is her absolute #1 favorite way to spend time. Right after school, she and Millie head to the dress-up box and dive in. Anything remotely fairy or princess like is (of course) a fave...

The photo of Audrey and her sister is very touching. There's a beautiful sisterly bond and love between them shown in the tender kiss she's giving her sister. So cute!

Have a good weekend!

She's got a great list! I miss playing dress up, actually. My little sister and I had the best dress up collection in town, back in the day.

What a really fun list, way to go Audrey. My sister and I also loved dress up and had some great classics in there - hand-sewn prom dresses that were our mother's from the sixties, my grantmother's hat collection (think Jackie O), gold heels and my aunt's wedding dress! We wore them until they literally were in pieces

Have a wonderful weekend with your sweet sister Millie and your mom and dad.

Jessica said...

I love that she loves The Beatles. I fell in love with them as a kid too. And kudos to her excellent taste and knowledge- Hey Bulldog is an excellent lesser known song!
