My friend over at http://www.deviledmegs.com/ totally tagged me a few days ago and now I am returning the favor and telling all of my readers ( loving the new ones!) 5 things that I can't leave the house without!
1) Obviously my wallet, but though it is packed to the brim with cards that I don't even use ( haven't been to Blockbuster in years!) my precious ATM Card. I hardly ever have cash these days, I mean who does? Where I work, though, we have a cafe that you can get a sandwich or some hot food or a salad and they only take Cash. So everyone is forced to use the ATM, which is so annoying and expensive! I hate that! There aren't any of my bank's ATMs really close to my house, so this cash problem is always a bit ridiculous! So after that long explanation, I use that magical card to buy everything else, gas, Mall items, online shopping, Starbucks stops, you name it, it goes on the card. I am very, VERY proud to say that I haven't used my credit card in who knows how long since I trying to pay off all of my debt.
3) My Chapstick!! I can't bear to be without the precious tube! I recently ran out of my precious Strawberry, which is IMPOSSIBLE to find so if you see one let me know. I have two in my bag right now, the Classic regular flavor and the Classic Cherry. In this brutal cold winter months, my lips need constant nourishment! Sometimes I will be upstairs and have to get up out of bed to go all the way downstairs just to put some on and get some relief from that awful chapped feeling.
4) Aqua!! I try not to buy water because I don't want to further pollute the world with harmful plastic bottles but on the weekends I do often purchase a Smart Water or two. I love this water, it has added electrolytes and I HONESTLY and truly feel better after I drink the entire thing! I then use the bottles to take my Britta water with me to work.
5) My book! Which I know I just plugged in my other post today about Chinese New Year, but its so good and you have to read it! The book is called "Girl in Translation" by Jean Kwok and the next book I am going to read is called "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett which I have heard is absoultely incredible! I hope so! I love getting sucked into other worlds where my imagination can run free and keep the pages turning! As previously promised, I am going to try to start reviewing movies and books for some of my posts. I am a little worried about giving too much away or spoiling it for people who haven't read them/seen them yet.
Now I will tag other friendly blog ladies so they can share their 5 things too:
