Hi friends! I am back from a bit of a blog/personal vacation! It felt really nice to get away for a little while and even when we got back to unplug for a little while longer. I am excited to be back though and even more excited to be linking up today for Show & Tell Tuesday!
Today we're talking about the three things we just can't live without. Now clearly I could go super deep with this and talk about my fabulous family, my framily/friends and my faith, but I'm going to go a little more light, airy and fun today. No offense to those three things, but it's early in the morning and I just need some light and airy!
It took me a second to try to figure my three things out, but I thought of things I "NEED/MUST HAVE" every single day and came up with the following:
Hello, my name is Natalie, and I am a a mascara addict! Y'all...I flipping love mascara! I think it totally changes the way a person looks and I use it like it's my job. I really don't leave the house without it. Now, I am not a big make-up person at all. Most days I don't have any make-up on at all, EXCEPT MASCARA!
I don't buy expensive make-up. I am a drug store make-up kind of girl and I'm proud of it! I usually change up my mascaras pretty much every time I run out. I always have two different ones that I apply. One that typically separates your eyelashes and makes them look longer and another that makes them look fuller. I generally stick with the Maybelline brand and rotate between them all before starting over. I'm serious you guys...I would take mascara with me on a deserted island!
#2 - SONIC drinks
This one kind of pains me to admit, because from about my senior year in high school until before I got pregnant with Henley, the only two things I drank were water and iced tea. Then I got pregnant and everything changed! I craved carbonated drinks like no other and I HAD to have them, so Sonic became my best friend.
Since I couldn't take advantage of happy hour while I was teaching, I would usually try to get there before school and take advantage of the 99 cent large drink deal. These days, I don't really care what time it is...I will pay for a Sonic drink! My go to drink is a coke zero with vanilla, but I also love the diet cherry limeade and I will always love some unsweet tea (with sweet n low of course!).
I do not drink enough water - I know, shame on me - so I think that is why I constantly crave a refreshing drink. I am working on getting more water in and limiting my Sonic drinks each week, so we'll see how things go. All I know is that when we were in Hawaii earlier this summer, I was dying for a Sonic drink. It felt like I was on a deserted island because all I wanted when I got back was a big ole Sonic drink!
#3 - Throw Blankets
I know this one may seem a little odd, but it is for real. We were just in Colorado and the place we were staying didn't have any throw blankets and I was dying. I am cold ALL THE TIME! I absolutely hate being cold, so if you are at my house and I am sitting down, I have a throw blanket around me always. They are just a necessity for me! I have a basket of them next to the couch and I have a feeling that I will be constantly adding to my pile.
I'm pretty sure this Pottery Barn blanket will be the next one I add to our collection...holy soft and make you just want to curl up!
Well, that's all for my ridiculous necessities! I would love for you to leave what your 3 things are in the comments!
Happy 4 day work week!!
