Happy Favorite Day

Celebrate! It's Happy Favorite Day! Get excited...make your banner and start planning your Favorite Day celebration.

What exactly is Happy Favorite Day?

Oh, I'm so glad that you asked. It will be your new favorite holiday. You will look forward to it for weeks.

Most of you know about Good Will Grace and if you don't, you really should hop on over there and check it out. It is fantastic and my dear friend Whitney wrote a wonderful piece to be published on GWG and I am so grateful she did. You will have to go over there to read it and trust me, you'll love it.

She writes about her favorite "simple things" in her life. Mornings with Mom and Grandma's treasure chest junk drawer are two of them. These are really the important things in her life and not the material things that we all get obsessed with at times.

I have been thinking so much about this and have decided to create a "Happy Favorite Day" holiday in my home. On this special holiday, we will do those simple things that make "living so grand."

Immediately after reading this, I decided that I was going to write a list of my favorite simple things too. I am thinking I am going to do it twice a year. I am on the hunt for a special box that will hold my favorite things list. I am also going to get my family on board for this and have each of them participate too. What a fabulous keepsake "time capsule" to hold these lists and drawings. We can look back on these and relive these memorable portions of our life. It will be interesting to see which things change and which things remain as a constant favorite.

Now, enter this holiday. I love my life and I love all of those little things that Mr. Molly Lou, the minis, and I have and do each day. I am going to make a fun and creative banner that says Happy Favorite Day and we are going to spend the day together doing all of those simple things in our life that we love. If we want to spend the day reading a novel early in the morning when no one is awake, drinking coffee all day, making a birthday cake and blowing out the candles, reading Guess How Much I Love You 52 times, playing in the sandbox and getting sand in our hair, eating pizza, painting, pretending we are Leo, Annie, June and Quincy (The Little Einsteins) or Mickey and Minnie, singing and dancing in the kitchen and giving kisses then that's what we will do.

My favorite day always involved my family and spending the day together remembering what we have and how much we love each other is what it's all about.

Happy Favorite Day to you!! What will you do on your Favorite Day and what will write on your list as your simple things that make your life so grand?

"Yeah, the little things in life that make it livin'Are the little things in life that make it love"
~C.W. McCall's lyrics from "The Little Things in Life"

Have a great day!


  1. I so love this idea! My Happy Favorite Day will probably consist of hanging with husby and the dogs, sitting in the backyard, reading a great book and drinking lots of coffee (in my favorite Starbucks cup!).

  2. Oh what an excellent idea! I'd really have to think on it, though... there are so many 'favorite' things I love to do. We have a joke in our family--I always get real close to whoever I'm with and whisper, "You're my favorite!" Mr. Bitsy cracks up and says, "Favorite what?!" Favorite husband because he's my ONLY husband. So not really a compliment in his book! lol

  3. I LOVE this idea! My Happy Favorite Day would consist of a maid arriving and cleaning my house from top to bottom while I relax with the man pool side. Then I would go out to my favorite restaurant for dinner with family and friends, enjoy some live music and maybe even dance...I think I still remember how to dance!

  4. This is a great idea! In our house, one thing we'd agree on is ice cream...and lots of it! :)

  5. What a great idea! You're such a fun mom!

  6. Happy Favorite Day - that's the best!!! I'm going to have to give mine some thought!


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
