Monday Morning Loves

3:02 AM
Happy Monday everyone! Another installment of just a few of my favorite things...

1. Urban Outfitters. I'm not a real clothes shopper. The mall to me is truly exhausting. But one store that I just can't get enough of is Urban Outfitters. Often it's either out of my price range or because I don't have the figure of a 12 year old boy, I can't pull off all their looks. But I don't let that discourage me. I own several cute dresses from Urban. I especially love their home decor items. From my bedspread, to my chair, to my wall hooks, and probably even more, so many little decorative items I own come from them! And one of these days, I'll get the fashion sense to truly pull off a great outfit.

2. Amazon Kindle. Oh, my Kindle. I didn't realize how much I'd love my Kindle. I feel like a salesperson for Amazon. I'm constantly raving about its benefits. For being such a reader, having the ability to carry hundreds of books with me at all times, is truly amazing. I love the ease of downloading, and being able to jump from book to book. Plus, it has international wireless availability, so I can keep the fun going in Cambodia, and wherever else my travels take me. No more heavy bags of books for me while traveling! Me and my Kindle are soulmates.

3. Cambodia! I first visited this country last year, and I can't wait to get back! I loved too much of this country to list in this little post, but if you read any of my other Cambodia tagged posts, you'll understand why I fell in love. I mean...look at this!

4. Macbook. I was a PC for the first 25 years of my life. Then, I converted. Several people I knew were Mac users, and I needed a laptop for work, so I thought...why not! And I've never looked back. From its streamlined look to its super easy use, what's not to love?! Everything I ever do is on my Macbook. I'd be lost without it.

5. Switchfoot. There are few bands that I can listen to at any time. Switchfoot is one of them. I've seen them live 4 times, and every time they amaze me. I love their sounds, their lyrics, and their energy. Somehow they manage to be a band of Christians, instead of a Christian band. Too often I hear a Switchfoot song that stops me in my tracks. My favorite, Awakening, reminds me to wake up and discover my dreams. This video is one of my all-time favs, starring Buster from Arrested Development and Emma from Glee!

So there you have it! Another installment of my Monday Morning Loves!
