Top Fives

This post may contain affiliate links. 

Isn't the best way to get to know someone to find out all of their favorite things?  Favorite movies tend to tell you a lot about a person, right?  I think so anyway.  Plus I just like listing all of my favorite things, particularly on Fridays, and I like hearing about yours too.  So, in no particular order, here are my top five:


Empire Records
Harry Potter ... all of them.  They count as one.
Tom and Huck
Everything Starring Nicolas Cage, but favorite... Con Air.  If I have to pick.

TV Shows

My So-Called Life
Dawson's Creek
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Veronica Mars
Gilmore Girls
(Lizzie McGuire, House, and the West Wing just barely lost out)


Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind
Real World by Matchbox 20 
This Is How We Roll by Florida Georgia Line. Or Cruise. I don't know, I can't pick.
Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran
Glycerine by Bush

Mexican Rice and Beans
Taco Bell (and no, none of those 3 are the same thing!)
Veggie Burgers and Edamame from Kuma's
Pasta with my Dad's Homemade Sauce

Can I just say how much harder this was than top threes, for some reason?  And also, most of my answers suggest that I refuse to leave the 90s and that is absolutely accurate.  Leave me your top fives in the comments below!
