Women's Health Week - Can't Live Without It

Here it is, 10:00PM and I'm just sitting down to write this post. This means this post will likely go unnoticed by all 8 of my diligent readers.
It's been one of those days. Correction, the past two days have been those days. Marcus has been extremely fussy and nothing seems to calm him. I've gone down "the list" of possible things that could be his issue(s), and none of them check out. Bleh. So, I'm chalking it up to growing pains (do those things exist?).

To lighten things up and get me out of this Mommy slump I'm running down a list of Mommy-must haves. For me anyway.

Here are the things that I cannot live without any given day.
1. The Nalgene bottle. That thing is always with me. If it's not with me I've misplaced it (very likely), or it's in the dishwasher.
2. My morning coffee. One cup is never enough. I usually have 5 or 6. Hey, don't judge. Whatever it takes to function.
3. Catwalk Curls Rock hair cream. If you've noticed, I have an unruly mane of curls. This is the only stuff that keeps the curls tamed, and not crunchy.
4. The phone. Without it I'm lost. It's my clock, my calculator, and computer at times. How did we ever function without phones like this?!
5. My arm band and no slip ear phones. Workouts would never happen if it weren't for those two.
6. My Brady Bands; 98% of the time my hair is in a pony tail, and I have crazy fly-aways. The Brady Bands keep things under control.

There you have it. My 6 daily must-haves.

  3. i couldn't live without my water bottle either!

  4. My water bottle would definitely be number one on my list too!

  5. I feel like that about my phone too. I don't know how to behave without it.

    I'm also pretty close to my water bottle.

  6. Hi! Even though my son is almost 34, I remember those crabby days. I always said those kids that were good all the time, never would amount to anything when they grew up because they were too timid. Maybe not true but made me feel better at the time :).

    The phone, seriously, I panic if I think mine is missing. I don't even know anyone's phone number without it.

  7. I love the things you can't live without! I wear activebands everyday! I have every color of the sparkle bands and couldn't live without them! I don't drink coffee but I don't judge you for drinking 5-6 cups, whatever gets you through the day!!

  8. Not unnoticed by me :) poor Marcus! I do believe in growing pains now that amelia can tell us her legs hurt, we try to rub them for her :( where do you get the hair stuff?
