Sound Off Please

Okay, a while back on Mari's blog, she listed some of the things she cannot live without (or prodcuts that she just love, love, loves), so I am totally copying her idea (hope were still friends, Mari). I am going to list a few items that I really like and then I am asking YOU --- EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO IS READING THIS BLOG WHETHER YOU HAVE COMMENTED HERE BEFORE OR NOT to sound off and let me (and everyone else) know what your favorite things are. These can be anything from your favorite makeup/aftershave to your favorite kind of trash bag. These should be tried and true items that you prefer over everything else you have tried.

Here is my list in no particular order

1. Principal Secret Reclaim Skin Care Line
2. CLR bathroom cleaner (Lowe's)
3. Lancome Juicy Tubes Lip gloss
4. Bath & Body Works Lip gloss in a tube
5. Trinds nail strengthener (my mom bought it for me at the nail salon)
6. Perfect Glass glass cleaner (Lowe's)
7. Blinc inc "Kiss Me" liquid eyeliner (never comes off until you peel it off - yes, I said peel)
8. True Blend Mineral Blush - I think cover girl, not sure but it comes from drug stores or Wal-mart
9. Curel Ultra Healing lotion
10. CeraVe moisturizing cream ($12 CVS - lasts forever)
11. Chap-stik (I know you are shocked)
12. Those funny looking fluorescent light bulbs that look like a cork screw - they last forever
13. Oust Air and Surface Sanitizer - smells better than Lysol
14. Febreez in any scent
15. Gain detergent and fabric softener
16. Sheer Cover mineral makeup (although I often use the Loreal kind and like it too)
17. Sheer Cover bronze lip to lid highlighter
18. St. Ives Apricot Scrub (I use it all over not just on face)
19. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - (I cook with it or eat it by the spoonful and it DOES give you energy - Natural Foods Store)
20. Great Value Cherry Limeade sugar free drink mix packets from Wal-Mart - you know the kind you put in your Aquafina? They're great!


OKAY, YOUR TURN! THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE! SHARE ALL YOUR SECRETS! SHOW EVERYONE HOW SMART YOU ARE! EVEN IF YOU ARE USUALLY A LURKER, TIME TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET (so to speak)!! TELL US ALL WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ARE!!!!! DON'T BE SHY!

OK, it's obvious that Dad needs to rescue you from your, "I'm in a rut" life. If it don't go on your eyes, your skin, your mirrows or you washing machine, you don't like anything else. You need another vacation. Come down to Georgia and I'll get one of my counselors to spend some time with you. Your a "hoot" and I love you dearly. Dad

Currently...I can't live without the beach, the sand, the sun, the sound of waves, the sunset, the delicious food, the laughter, the fun, the late nights, the family, and the most beautiful water I've ever known.

Yes. I'm in Destin! :)
Love,
Fran

Oh Beth, today would have been your lucky day..... I wasn't going to comment on this post because it is more geared towards women's interests.

BUT.... your dad's comments were just to good to not acknowledge. Eddie, you tore me up! Great post!

Welcome back Beth! I'll bet you forget to get Goofy's autograph for me, didn't you?

I agree with a lot of the things you said in your post, I can't live without #s 11, 18, and 19. I also love my Purity Mineral science makeup. I have to have my laptop. And in the summer, I can't be with out my sunglasses and swim suit!! :)

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog! I haven't updated it in so long that I'd almost forgotten it existed... so thanks, too, for the reminder!

I love this cheerful post. If you'll pardon my rambling, I'll give you my answer:

This afternoon, my kids and I were listening to XM Kids in the minivan when Julie Andrews came on, singing "My Favorite Things."

(You know: raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens? Yeah, THAT.)

Well, it just so happens that I love to sing along with the radio. My kids, however, revolt almost every time. ("Mommy, please don't sing! You're hurting our ears!" Sigh: honesty.)

But today, I started singing, and they didn't complain at all. Not one whine or howl. They just listened while I carried on, trying to carry the tune.

When the song was over, my oldest said, "Mom? Was that your favorite song?" I said, "Yes, sweetie; one of my very favorites of all time."

"Well, Mom," he said, "then you can sing that song whenever you want to."

And THIS is my very favorite thing today. So thanks for letting me share...
