Best fiction book: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
This book was so good that it's even a contender for my top 10 all time faves. And if I remember correctly, this was one of the only books that everyone in book club enjoyed.
Best non-fiction book: Insight Guides Vietnam
If you want to get a feel for the culture of VN, then you need to pick this book up. It covers the history, food, religion, and people of Vietnam and most of its provinces. And the beautiful pictures are a bonus.
Best movie: Miss Potter
I don't think this movie received very good reviews when it was in the theater, but we were very pleasantly surprised when we rented it.
Best album: Into the Wild soundtrack (Eddie Vedder rocks)
If you stop by my house at any given time, chances are I'll be singing along to Eddie. I just can't get enough of this album. And the book and movie of "Into the Wild" were close contenders for making the "best of 07" list.
Best beauty product: Rosebud Salve
You gotta love this little pot of balm- I never leave home without it! You can use it as lip gloss on chapped or sun-burned lips, you can use it to tame frizzy or flyaway hair, and what I'm using it for lately - to soothe the skin around my nose.
Best restaurant: Sample
This tiny little restaurant on Allen St. serves everything in bite sized "samples". Doll-sized chicken pot pies, steak and frites, cheese fondue and even a tiny bread bowl of french onion soup. And this is where we discovered the Golden Monkey reisling.
Best moment: beginning the adoption progress on our 3rd wedding anniversary. Need I say more?
Those are a few of my "bests" of 07, and I'm looking forward to having some of the "bests" of my life in 08! What are some of yours?
