Having fun with the letter B...

I am finally getting around to playing the Letter Game! My lovely friend Nicole at A Sweet Soft Southern Thrill assigned me the letter "B". Nicole did an awesome job with the letter "G"...she is so witty and creative! Here are the instructions per her blog: if you want to play, leave a comment on this post letting me know, and I'll assign you a letter. You post ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on.

1. Bubble tea.
Last summer I was completely addicted to bubble tea! If you aren't familiar with this drink, it originated in Taiwan and contains little tapioca pearls ("bubbles" or "bobas"). My absolute favorite version to order is a Thai tea with bobas.

2. Books.
I am slightly obsessed with books and love spending hours browsing bookstores. My book shelves contain quite an eclectic mix...topics include fashion, history, religion, psychology, cooking, chick lit, criminology, and make-up artistry.

3. The Bible.
I can't live without the greatest book of all time!

4. Bears.
Bears have ALWAYS been my favorite animal. I especially love polar bears. I love bears so much that I got a dog that looks like a little black bear!

5. Bellinis.
My favorite drink...I love having these for brunch with prosciutto.

6. Belts.
I love all kinds of belts...skinny, wide, leather, studded, jeweled. However, I hardly ever wear belts with pants! I usually wear them over dresses, sweaters, or long cardigans. I also love to wear them with high waisted skirts.

7. Balenciaga.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. From your soft leather bags to your architectural shoes, you make me covet your works of art.

8. The beach.
Enough said, right? Sadly, since I moved to Florida I hardly ever have time to go to the beach! I am going to make it my mission this summer to spend more time there (so I guess that means I need to start cutting back on #9).

9. The Big Mac.
When I was little, I hated McDonalds. Then in college, two of my best friends were McDonald's addicts and converted me over to the dark side. Now I can't let a week pass without driving through and devouring their delicious fries and most infamous burger.

10. Ballet.
I started taking ballet when I was about three years old and have loved it ever since. I'm no longer a skilled ballerina (these days I do good to even touch my toes...ha!), so I love to go see the ballet every chance I get. Among my favorites are classics such as The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
