O is for Oreo

I am not really a cookie person. But that being said, I get extremely curious about the different flavors of Oreo cookies that I find. Have you seen some of the flavors they have  come up with? 

Here are a few that I have come across. 


Watermelon Oreos? I definitely did NOT try these. I LOVE watermelon. But Watermelon Oreos? No thank you.



There are Candy Corn Oreos? I am not a big fan of Candy Corn so I really wasn't up for trying these.



Candy Cane Oreos. Let me just say, I am a sucker for ALL things peppermint. I thought these were yummy.



And finally, Lemon Oreos. These used to be a limited edition but I think they have now been added to the list of regular Oreo cookie flavors. Which is pretty awesome because they are my all time favorite. I really do love these cookies.


What Oreo cookie flavors have you tried?

M is for Moon

I love the moon. I always have.

When I was younger, I must have REALLY loved the moon because I remember getting a letter, when I was away at college, from my younger brother and pretty much the entire letter was him writing about how he heard I liked the moon. I guess I may have talked about it a little too much.

L is for Late

Here I am, late again. But that is nothing new. I have always been late. I stay up late and I love to sleep in late. Some days, I work late and so I get home late.

Today, I should be writing all about the letter N. But I am not. Because in typical Me fashion, this post is all kinds of late.

K is for Keepsake



{48/365}
My mom's old silver lipstick case. They just don't make them like this
anymore. The tiger's eye keeps the mirror closed and also moves to push the lipstick up.


May 4, 2010: The Beat
I have had this button/pin since I was a teenager...and if you know who The Beat were then you know just how long ago that was. ;-)


February 8, 2010: hidden treasure
Here is another little treasure I have hidden away.

I bought this awesome necklace/pendant quite a few years ago. I think I may have purchased it from one of the local street fairs but I really cannot remember that far back. It is surprisingly in great shape, the similar candle holder I purchased at the same time, sadly is not.


February 7, 2010: Little city in wax
Years ago my parents took a trip to Israel. This is one of the things they brought back for me. I love candles and find it hard to burn them when they look so pretty. At least I don't have to worry about anyone trying to light it though, as the wick fell out years ago.

J is for Journal

*notebook*

*my notebook*   {315/365}


I have blogged before about what keeping a journal means to me.

Even though I prefer to write down my thoughts, lately I have been trying out some of the iPhone journaling apps that are currently available. My favorites are Day One and Momento. I love how I can add a photo to an entry and also include little extras like the weather or a little map of the places that I've been. It's all so neat and compact and modern and new, but for me it just doesn't compare to a handwritten paper journal.

Using different pens, the way my handwriting changes, adding little doodles, all of this is what makes a journal so personal to me. Much more personal than a mobile journal. Well at least for me. I feel that when I hand-write my words, my thoughts are more personal and there just seems to be more of them.

Do you keep a journal? What do you prefer, mobile app or written?

I is for Interestingness

It's that time again. Time for me to share my most interesting photos. Well...the most interesting according to Flickr.

I must admit that this post is mainly due in part to my own curiosity, but I hope you may find it interesting as well.

This year, I am pretty happy to see that my top 72 most interesting photos have changed a bit. Sure, some of these photos have been part of my most interesting for many years. But this year there are quite a few new photos and there is even a new top interesting photo! Yay! It is kind of rare for my top photo to change. Usually once a photo makes it to the top of the interesting list, it stays there pretty much forever.

So here's this year's count down:

  • 16 photos of cats
  • 15 photos of feet
  • 12 photos of yarny things
  •   8 photos of food
