It’s time for another fun carnival with the great bloggers from MomDot!
The theme this time around is 5 things you can’t live without…I’m fairly certain I could live without these five things, but having them in my life makes the day-to-day so much easier and enjoyable.
First, this gorgeous DeLonghi Magnifica Espresso Machine. It makes me two shots of espresso in the morning and in the afternoon for a nice iced treat. I love it and don’t think I’ll ever be able to enjoy coffee if this ever happens to break.
Second…my calendar and whiteboards… especially now with Jeremiah in school and fall season picking up for parties, blogging events, etc…I have to stay as organized as possible. I have multiple boards – this one shows my posts for the week here and at Arizona Foothills – then I have a calendar in the kids room, and a weekly calendar for the day to day in the kitchen. Overkill? Maybe, but I made the mistake of missing one appointment for an interview and it embarrassed me to NO END! Never again.
Third, and along the same lines as the calendar, there’s my notebook. This is my big one – I use it for weekly schedules of my articles, as well as what’s coming up. I also have a small notebook I keep in my purse that I jot ideas down on whenever inspiration may strike. I am one of those people that really, really like to physically write things down. Can you tell??
Fourth, we have my 32oz water bottle. This goes with me EVERYWHERE – it’s like my cell phone. I drink probably 4-5 of these a day. Living in Arizona, you can never really drink too much water – and I love this big bottle. The cap is starting to fall off, sadly, so I’ll have to replace it…eventually.
Fifth, call me shallow, call me vain – but I L-O-V-E bare minerals. Foundation, blush, eye shadow, mascara, eye liner…I’ve got it all. They love to see me walk through the door of the Bare Escentuals store at Scottsdale Fashion Square. I’m always in there for “one thing” but I seem to end up leaving with more than that. It is a weakness, I know. But I can’t help it – it makes my skin flawless through coverage and because it’s good for my skin. How can I not love it.
(Disclaimer – neither DeLonghi or Bare Escentuals gave me product for review, I just love them!)
