5 Things

Apr 8, 2011

Happy Friday or should I say TGIF. I know I promised ya’ll some fashion pics of me in my birthday week outfits and it’s Friday and there is still no post and I am super sorry. Its been a hectic week! The hubs has been working late most nights, my mother-in-law came in town for a visit and on top of that my sweet baby has been sick. So, no time to be vain and take pictures of myself. I promise my best to have it ready for next week. In the meantime…

The gorgeous and insanely sweet Michaela tagged me in the “Name 5 Things You Can’t live Without” Series. This was kind of a tough assignment. I mean there are alot of things you can live without, so I tried to think past the obvious food, shelter, and clothing. I feel pretty confident with my answers (although a few are probably a little shallow, but I’m just being honest)!

ONE: IPhone

I just got this bad boy about 3 weeks ago and we are officially attached by the hip. Before my Iphone I had a love affair with my Blackberry. So you see I really can’t live without my phones.
Yes, sadly two things on my list are technology related! I watch alot of TV and most of it I can’t watch while Matt is home because, he despises Reality TV and Teeny Bopper Shows, which are really what I love to watch. I usually end up recording most of my shows and watching them while he is at work thanks to my DVR
THREE: Cooking + Fashion
Ok, I kind of cheated and grouped two things together but they are my two biggest passions and I can’t imagine my life without them! Here is my girl crush showing how its done in her bad ass dress and dream kitchen. The perfect combo of food and fashion!
FOUR: Wine
Technically I can live without this. I mean I did go 10 months with almost no booze, but I sure do love my glass of wine!
FIVE: My Family + Friends
My family means the world to me. Matt and Sterling are the two loves of my life. My parents, sister and brother are also some very important peeps! I don’t know what I would do without all their love and support. I love them all to the moon and back again a million times. I feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful family and close group of friends.

Now I am going to tag one of my favorites, the fabulous Jill at A Beautiful Life! Have a Great Weekend! xoxo

    Great picks! My phone & friends/family would definitely make it on my list, too. I have to watch my reality tv when the bf isn't home, too! Not fair.

  5. I couldn't agree more with your choices!

  6. Luvs. And who can live without iphones, fashion, and booze??
