Cause two blogs are better than one...

I found this from Rachel, and I thought it was fun, so I wanted to share. Here's the description she copied, as did I...

What I want to know is 10 NEW (not the same old thing) things you've discovered that you can't live without and why.

I'm talking practical, here.

Not Jesus or your family ... that's a given.

I'm talking PRODUCTS ... anything from groceries to toiletries to make-up to shoes. This will help us all discover new things we may want to try.

Ta da! My list, in no particular order...

Diet Lipton Green Tea

Delicious! Superman and I drink probably one a day. They're sweet, they're something other than water (my usual drink), and they have zero calories. That rocks.

Born shoes

Born shoes are a little expensive, around $100 for a pair, but you can walk around the world in them. I've had one of my two pairs for over six years already, and they're still in great shape. Plus, they're comfortable and are great work shoes. Highly recommend.


Is it bad that I watch TV shows on my iPod while my students are taking tests?

My fake Chi

It's called a GER or GRE or something like that, but it's a fake Chi. I bought it at Sally's last year for $60, and I love it! It looks like a real Chi and it straightens my hair like a real Chi -- but it doesn't cost as much!


It's crawfish, not crayfish, and I cannot wait to have some soon!

Bath and Body Works Sweetest Softest Socks on Earth

These socks really are the softest socks on Earth. They're warm, they make my feet feel soft, and there's nothing better than being cozy in PJs with a cup of hot chocolate and wonderful socks on your feet.

Red tulips

My favorite flower. I love them. One Valentine's Day, Superman brought me red tulips and roses. He said the roses were a traditional Valentine's Day gift and the tulips were because they were my favorite flower.


You know, I'm not a fan of Starbucks coffee (other than the Christmas blend -- and only when they make it right!), but their mochas are delicious. When I want coffee, I head to our local coffee shop, but when I want something sweeter, it's Starbucks all the way.

Rokr phone

FYI, my Rokr phone is older and doesn't look nearly as cool as this, but I was psyched when I got it because it was the first phone I had that could take pictures. That's moving on up for me. But my old Rokr died, so Alltel gave me a new one...and I can't get new ringtones on it. But, hey, it's still better than any other phone I've ever had.

Victoria's Secret night shirt

These $10 night shirts are my favorite sleepwear ever. Kudos to Misti for getting me my first one. I now have about three, and they are super comfortable -- great with those BBW socks I was mentioning.

If you want to do this, please let me know! I want to make sure I see your meme! =D

OK I am so glad you posted on the GRE or GER or whatever it's called. My stylist told me to get one (for styling, not straightening OBVIOUSLY) and she recommended a Chi and I was like, "Um, remember that my husband works for the seminary? Yeah, won't be getting a Chi any time soon." I might have to go by Sally's and check this out.

Oh! I saw those socks on clearance after Christmas and had them in my hand before I laid them back down and walked out. Now I wish I would have gotten them...they look so wonderful.

And now I am craving a Starbucks...too bad I already used the gift card you sent me. ;)

I'm so glad you love those sleep shirts...I have four! And I want more! They are stinkin' awesome.

It's all good, except those crawfish!
I don't know if I could come up with 10 things. I'll think on that.

I love all your favorites! I have the same flat iron...and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. My hairdresser actually recommended it to me! I might have to participate in this...maybe Monday. I'll start thinking over the weekend of my favorite things. This is a great idea to share and see what everyone enjoys...see what we have in common! I have always doing a similar I have a reason to! Thanks for the idea!

Sit A Spell said...

Hi...glad you popped over to "sit a spell" on my blog.

Have a great Sunday!

Growin' with it! said...

This looks like fun. I will have to file the idea for another day.
I spent today creating a new award, and you are one of the recipients. Come see.. :)
Oh, and TV during tests, don't I wish!
