Erin at Shades of Gray and a Pinch of Pink inspired me today! I love a good list post and her's was easy and fun. It's almost reminicent of those notes that would go around Myspace and Facebook...you know, 26 things you don't know about me, or the ones that gave you a choice between two items/ideas/movies/etc.
10 of My Favorite Foods
Cheese and pepperoni - this was a staple at get togethers when I was growing up. I totally associate this combo with family
Homemade macaroni and cheese
Mint brownies - heaven in my mouth
Sonic diet limeade with pineapple - sometimes I add cherry and it tastes like fruit punch
Dark beer - nothing lighter than an ale...lager, brown, stout, porter. BJ's blonde and Leffe blonde are the only exceptions
Mashed potatoes - either lumpy or whipped!
Rice Krispy Treats - DH made me a pan of rice krispy treats for Valentine's Day last year. I ate the entire pan over the course of 8 hours at work. The. Entire. Pan.
Chocolate covered coconut anything
Pumpkin pie - I've asked for it as a birthday "cake" before

The Hudsucker Proxy
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with Kevin Costner
Singin' In the Rain

Ryan Reynolds - but only if he's ever daft enough to leave Blake Lively
Neil Patrick Harris - we could sing and dance all over the place

Mall Madness - my first lesson in credit card debt and what those little cards could buy a girl!
