Candi’s Favorite Things!



I was tagged by my new buddy, Piper of Steak & Cakes, to list some of my favorite things. Her blog is fantastic….please check it out!


As a recovering shop-a-holic, spend-a-holic, I don’t shop much anymore. I will state that once I start making money, I plan to shop at my home away from home during college (which is the reason I can’t shop anymore)

I can’t forget about Etsy, since I’ve learned so much from it since I started about 8 months ago. For those of you who don’t know, I’m working on opening up a shop very, very soon with my photos as note cards/post cards or for those of you who want to buy them as prints. Please stay tuned!!!


The city I love the most hands down is Lake Tahoe…which is in both California and Nevada! This was my favorite place growing up. I realized at the young age of 10 that I wanted to be a reporter, thanks to all the practice of chasing down celebrities and conducting my own interviews! Each year my mom and I go to the celebrity golf tournament. Mostly to see Sir Charles, but mainly to have a good time! This year Tony Romo and Lucas Black threw me their golf balls! Needless to say I’m already counting down to next July!

I love Tony Romo, it's just a joke. I'd never mock him!Haha I love Tony, I wouldn’t mess with him!


I tend to love sour things far more than anything sweet, but when I do have sweets I love turtles-chocolate with nuts. I am happy with a Hershey’s with Almonds! I love caramel covered marshmallows too!



I like water, chamomile tea when I’m stressed, dr. pepper, and iced tea. Drinks with alcohol: bud light with limeade, margaritas, and a key lime martini from a restaurant called Centros in Sacramento.


I love it all from classic country, to new country, oldies, rock, classic rock, hip hop, to elevator music. I love everything! A few favorites are

Keith Urban concert on my birthday!


I don’t really watch tv. I turn on The Hills, but I can’t even get myself to be fully engaged in an episode. I don’t know what’s happening to me! If I watch tv it’s usually the news or if I know somebody I like is going to be on a program. Wait a sec I almost forgot, I’m really liking Kath and Kim and I watch The Soup.


I’m thankful to have a fast metabolism, and I don’t work out.


Red velvet and fruit basket cake are my favorites!


Before I start please don’t think that I’m anal because of my drink. I have a weak stomach that can’t handle more than one espresso shot.

From Starbucks I get a tall caramel macchiatto with extra caramel and whipped cream in a venti cup. I used to have to say I’d like venti caramel macchiatto with a single shot, decaf, ex. caramel and whipped cream…but thanks to a nice guy at Starbucks recently I only have to say tall ” ” ” ” in a venti cup…and it saves me money 🙂

I have to tag two people but there are three lovely blogs I’d like to tag!

I was tagged by Little House On Green this week, to list seven random/weird things about myself. This is harder than I thought!!!!

1) I have over 600 songs on my computer, but don’t have an ipod!

2) I have just recently learned that photographing around the yard is a stress reliever!

3) My Grandma is my 87 year old child. I give her speeches before we go places about not talking about people’s appearances. Just yesterday I regretted not giving her a speech before her doctor’s appt, when will I ever learn? lol

Love Grandma Margarita, but she's always up to no good!!!

4) My favorite song is Las Mananitas. It’s the Happy Birthday song in Spanish, but it has been used as my Graduation from college song, and just about everything else!


5) If somebody won’t do something for me or help me do something, I’ll do it myself. From moving furniture, to cutting my own bangs…if I want to do something, I won’t wait.

6) I can imitate Aunt Bee on the Andy Griffith show, and I irritate my mom when I imitate Karen’s voice from the Will & Grace show.

7) I made my mom an etsy shop today with her Christmas ornaments. I forgot how hard it is to make a shop!!!! I should be paid for this lol!
