What's Your Favorite...

I promised myself a few days ago that I’d do my layout for the favorite food challenge over at 'WhatIsYourFaveThing' this week... but, this one has been a hard one for me... I've really had to think about what my favorite food is... I love so many different kinds of food...

While thinking of what my favorite is, I was reminded that as a child I loved pickles, couldn't get enough of them. I still like them... but my favorite? I don't think so. I started thinking about Italian food, Mexican food, Thai food, a nice steak dinner or even a yummy hamburger, but I couldn't put my finger on what was my favorite. My favorite food, it shouldn't be this difficult. Then it hit me as I was watching Rainee enjoying an espcially pleasing chocolate bar... this is my favorite food... chocolate... mmmmmmmmm! Yes, that's it!!! Chocolate of any kind... I love the way chocolate melts in your mouth. I love how it makes me feel all warm inside... yumo!

Now that I knew what my favorite food was... I couldn't stop thinking about the layout... I had ideas running through my head. Of course this meant, I would need to squeeze in little field trip to the store with Rainee, to buy chocolates! Not a problem! At the store, while I was picking out some of my favorite chocolates... I saw how Rainee's eyes got bigger & bigger... then she said to me, "Mommy, these are for me right? Cuz' you know me, I'm a chocolate girl!" When she said this, I realized two things, 1- she takes after her mama, and loves chocolate... and 2- this layout would be of Rainee and not me, because I had the perfect picture!!! I love love love this photo of Rainee, it shows how much she's enjoying her chocolate! This is how I picture myself eating chocolate as a child... enjoying every bite, getting it all over my face... and having a very happy day with something I love. So even though this layout may have my dear sweet little Rainee on it with her favorite food... it's my favorite too!!!

What is your favorite food? Did you know it instantly or did you have to think about it, like me? Whatever it is... I hope you get to take pleasure in it soon! Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by...
