Favorite Thing Thursday

Lately, these have been a few of my favorite things...

1. Being in the U.K. for an Extended Period

I love extended trips. When I was younger, my family and I would always go to Turkey for 6 weeks at a time and I truly think it's the best way to travel. It gives me the chance to really soak in the every day life of a country, and even gives me a chance to miss California a little. For an extreme wanderluster as myself, this is crucial!

2. Sunbathing with Oscar

3. Fresh Basil


I've put this in all caps because I LOVE sticky toffee pudding. Pretty sure I'm going to gain a few pounds eating copious amounts of this, but I just don't care! Thank you Waitrose, I love you too.


What are some of your favorite things of the week? 


  1. My UK visitors always say - ANYTHING BUT PUDDING - for dessert when they're here in the States. Pie, cake, cookies, ice cream, anything except pudding. Which suits me just fine because that means more pudding for me

  2. hahaha...I am right there with you, rooth!!

  3. I so love sticky toffee pudding - it's the best! This week I'm loving eating cupcakes and only working 4 days this week. Hurrah!x

  4. Agreed. Extended trips are most definitely the best. They truly allow you to live like a local and spot the hidden gems.

  5. Hehe, love this list! It's so great you're able to extend your time in the UK. That's definitely a wonderful way to travel. Yum, I love sticky toffee pudding too!! xxx
