Day 29: 3 things you cannot live without

I'm guessing this beyond the usual food, water, oxygen, shelter, clothing, and caffeine. So here are three things, in no particular order.

Lip balm. Nivea, Neutrogena, Burt's Bees, Carmex, whatever. I have to have something on my lips! If I don't use any, I wake up with little cracks or whatever in the center of my lips and that HURTS. Even Sophie asks for some, as I'm putting my makeup on in the mornings. She'll point to the tube on the bathroom shelf, say "Me! Me!" and purse her lips. It's so cute!

My iPhone. Yes, I realize it sounds awful to feel that way about a phone. But it is so much more! Games and shows to entertain Sophie (and Emma), email, internet, diet, GPS, and more. Last night I walked 2 miles while watching an episode of Doctor Who, in the park! Now isn't that mind-blowing to think of? And FaceTime is great when my husband is traveling.

These two. Come on, I couldn't leave them out, could I? I was just telling my husband a few days ago that three years ago, I was perfectly happy with only one child. Our family was perfect and complete. But now, I can't imagine not having both girls. I honestly believe the world would stop if anything happened to either one.


  1. Your girls are beautiful.
    As far as the phone- I was just thinking today how I could 'lose' my phone :) ha ha- I had lost one a few months ago and it was glorious prior to getting it replaced (in fact, my hubby wanted to know if I had lost it on purpose)- of course, mine is not an Iphone, so maybe if I had one of those I would not WANT to lose it :)

  2. LOVE the pic of your girls! BEAUTIFUL!
