Unimportant Favorite Things Meme

I have been tagged for a meme - and like the dear lady that tagged me over at A Real Momma's Day Book - I only know one other blogger. Well, we will see if I get the courage by the end of this post to tag some perfect strangers!

My Six Unimportant Favorite Things

The smell of a clean body right out of the shower or bath. I love the smell of babies, big kids and especially my husband when they are squeaky clean.

Sushi - I love all things sushi -ish. Real sushi, maki rolls, sashimi, edamame, wasabi, ginger, white rice, fried rice yum yum yum!

Garage Sales - I guess with the economy the way it is heading this may become an important favorite thing, but for now I just love to go and dig through other peoples stuff and hope to find a treasure. In the early days of my marriage I clothed my kids from there, bought lots and lots and lots of knickknack/decorating things. When I homeschooled I bought hundreds of children's books for mere pennies. I have a library as good as a school library. Seriously.

Books - I am addicted to books. How to books, school books, religious books, recipe books, get thin yesterday books, science, math, youth books, dang near anything that isn't adult fiction.

Movies - I love to go to the movies at the theatre and buy me some plain popcorn and a huge diet coke and lose myself in the world of make believe. At home I can't sit still long enough to watch a movie. Always something that needs done. But at the theatre - I have paid and I get to enjoy!

Lilacs - I love the smell. I am in heaven during lilac season. You will see me randomly sniffing a bush. I have fantasies of stopping and cutting off branches of big bushes I pass. Just to have the smell in my car.

Out on a limb here - I tagged MommaB - check out her giveaway while you are there! I also tagged Sarah at Real Life, and my friend at The Truth Will Set You Free

One last thing -- the rules. Mention the person who tagged you, list your six Unimportant Favorite things, and then tag six other bloggers. (I know I only tagged 3 but they are all wonderful!)
