We think a great way to get to know someone is to learn about some of his or her favorite things!
So to launch This Blue Dress, each of the This Blue Dress sisters are sharing 10 of our favorite things starting off with the oldest Crouch sister Maegan!

1. Brown paper packages!
Brown paper, tags, gift wrap, ribbons, baubles, cards (I love using these Project Life cards). Any little things that can brighten someone’s day! I found out recently that the Dollar Store has great brown paper for wrapping! I love to deliver things with homemade treats or flowers.
I ate eight tacos on my 8th birthday (and yes, I got sick). I haven’t matched that record since, but I still loooove tacos.
3. Teaching and doing projects with children
Especially my own crew! I homeschool and hope to teach children’s art classes someday in my own home studio.
Singing, playing piano, listening, violin (total newbie), teaching Primary music (children’s class), musical theater.
My nickname was once Hermit because I’d spend hours in my room reading. But I also love the social aspect of enjoying a favorite book with others by reading aloud with my family!
6. The beach.
Warm beaches are my favorite, but I think they are all beautiful! My husband and I honeymooned in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and I can’t wait to go back someday!
7. Dancing with my husband, Joey.
He still makes me swoon! Family dance parties rock too.
8. Playing games with my family!
Any, but Calypso brand is one of my top picks (fun fact: our parents’ cat is named Calypso after this lemonade!). Chocolate milk (have you tried Fair Life? Yum!) Skim milk. Smoothies. An occasional root beer.
10. Helping at the food bank
Visiting at a nursing home, or helping someone with their yard. I love service projects!
Do we share any favorite things? Let’s chat in the comments!
You can check out more posts about our favorite things or review posts. We’ll always share our honest experiences!
What a wonderful list! Books and beaches sound like my kind of fun. I am also really impressed with you eating 8 tacos-Wow! They really are delicious.
Thank you! Lol I learned my lesson about the tacos, definitely suggest spreading them out a little more. Books and beaches is a dream combo! -Maegan
I loved getting to know you a little better! Game night are my favourtie too!!
Thank you! They are so fun. And just have to add I love your makeup posts! -Maegan
I love your list! For my Mother’s 75th birthday we had a “Favorite Things” Birthday Party. We decorated with bright copper kettles and snowflakes, etc. One of my favorite things from the party were all of the brown paper packages tied up with string! Such a beautiful canvas! Also, a huge fan of lemonade!
Aw, what a sweet birthday! It’s on my bucket list to attend or host a Favorite Things party. They sound like so much fun! -Maegan
Aww I love brown paper packages! Tacos, yes any type! Playing games with my family-for christmas this year I got the girls a bunch of board games! Lemonade..I just made strawberry lemonade yesterday. The beach…is warm weather here yet?
I think we need to be friends 🙂 strawberry lemonade is the BEST! Thanks for dropping by! -Maegan
Fun post! I love reading about people’s favorite things. Reading is definitely one of my top favorites too!!!
Bookworm friends make awesome friends. BTW, love your red hair Harry Potter post! -Maegan
Three cheers for Tacos! I dont think Ive ever met someone who doesn’t like tacos! I love how you enjoy service work as well.
Thank you! Service work always helps me have a better perspective on life. I’m still trying to convince a few of my children on the taco gig. They’ll eat quesadillas now! 🙂 -Maegan
At least two of my favorite things made your list: beaches and helping at the food bank! Lots of good stuff on this list!
Thank you! Love that you like helping at the food bank too! I think it feels so great even when it’s the night to package hot dogs. 🙂 -Maegan
Your list is so sweet! And I totally agree, lemonade and tacos all the way!!
Thank you! Oooh, lemonade and tacos make such a great meal combo! -Maegan
I’m all about reading, and I have been really getting into reading SO MUCH in 2018! I live in PA, so beaches aren’t as wonderful as they would be in the south, but I just booked my honeymoon for a beach getaway and I am so excited! Great list of things you love.
Congrats on your engagement! I LOVED our beach honeymoon. Have an amazing time! -Maegan
I’m with you! Tacos are the bestttt. Loved getting to know more about you!
Thanks! We actually had homemade tacos for dinner last night, leftovers for lunch, and my sweet husband is bringing me tacos from one of my favorite Mexican places after work! #eatallthetacos
So many good things here! I love wrapping things in kraft paper and used to make my own wrapping paper with stamps and lots of pretty ribbons. 🙂
That sounds so fun! I haven’t really made my own wrapping paper, but it’s on my list to do this year for Christmas!
Girl, we have a lot in common. So many awesome favorite things! Let’s be friends?! I too love brown paper packages, but I suck at wrapping gifts!
Yes, let’s! I can ALWAYS use another friend! I could wrap packages for you, and we could enjoy a fun drink! 🙂
I love service projects too! I’m the volunteer coordinator at my job, and it’s so inspiring to go out into the community and help. I also volunteer at a local homeless shelter. The beach is my favorite! I used to work on a cruise ship, and I went to the beach almost every day. I never got tired of it. I haven’t been to the beach in so long! I’m planning on going on my trip to L.A. in a couple weeks.
What amazing jobs you’ve had! I’m sure you do a lot of good as a volunteer coordinator and your work at the shelter. A cruise is high up on my bucket list. Have an amazing trip to LA! I hope you get lots of beach time 🙂
