All the things you CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!

***Yesterday there were a couple people who expressed interest in posting so I decided to leave this open a little while longer! So if you wanted to but thought it was too late, feel free to link up today :)***

Well, here we are. Today is the day to tell me all the things you can't live without! I must say that I was a total slacker when it came right down to doing this... I know how awful, and when I'm supposed to be hosting it blah blah blah... But I totally did it! And I even got some fun pictures to go along!

I actually ended up coming up with three categories, and decided not to go with the pie-chart, but simply assign everything a percentage. So, are you ready to see what I can't live without? OK then, let's go!

Category 1: Things I CAN'T live without


I would not be who I am today without His love, grace, forgiveness and hand upon my life. He is my Saviour and I can't imagine my life without Him.

My family

Unfortunately I don't have a recent picture of my family... and consequently most of them are in bed already so I'm not sure they would appreciate a flash in their faces right about now :) But let me just say this about my family: They are the stabilizing factor in my life. When I am away from home for days and days, the only faces I long to see are theirs... and I know that when I come into the driveway and walk in the house everything will be at peace and I will know that no matter what, I am loved by them.

super amazing worship music

This is the album I am currently listening to and the one I listened to all last summer. I find that I listen to music most often in my car and I love it because it's like God-time for me... Like what else do i have to be doing? OK there is that whole paying attention while I'm driving thing, but who really does that anyway?

Category #2: Things I DON'T WANT TO live without

My good friends

I have a feeling that after they see this picture, they will no longer be my good friends... hey is that Chandler Bing? But seriously, I love you guys! My life would be so boring without you! And my car rides home from outbreak would be so much longer without Alicia *evil smile*


Again, no picture for this one... but how exactly do you photograph accountability? I for one, don't know. I know that without accountability in my life I would probably do some horrible things. I have my mom and my friends who know me so well and are always checking me... although I don't always like it, I totally need it!

my camera

This camera goes almost everywhere with me... and when it doesn't, I end up regretting it.

my lappie

this little lappie has been with me for over 2 years now and has been with me so many places... it went to India with me and on the way got to connect to wifi in Dubai... it was pretty stoked about that. Then it went with me to Brazil and has been to Canada once or twice. Big woop right? But i think it's most noteworthy achievement has been having the privilege to hold tight onto all my pictures... I wouldn't love my camera as much without my lappie :)

my awesomely comfy bed

O Bed, where would I be without you? You make my sleep cycle complete... and I know I don't take care of you the way I should... you rarely get made... but somehow I think that adds to your comfiness.


My mom and I have a mild addiction to watermelon. It starts early on and we push through all the way to the end of the summer. We eat a couple a week usually... It makes a great breakfast... and lunch... maybe a snack? Heck! It's good ALL the time!

Category #3: Things that MAKE MY LIFE MORE EXCITING!


This little cat makes me so happy. I am totally and horribly allergic to her... but I DON'T CARE! she makes my eyes itch and my nose runny... but I still let her sleep with me when she wants to and I still pet her and love her... how could you NOT love that face? oh no... I just realized that I'm starting to sound like a crazy - dare i say it! - CATLADY! NOOOOOO!!!

bloggie friends

no cutesie tootsie little picture here... But my life is definitely more interesting and exciting as a result of bloggie friends. I love reading about their lives and different activities!

random smoothy concoctions

I go on sporadic smoothy making frenzies... Usually they conincide with having many kinds of fruit in the house at one time. I like to experiment with anything and everything. Last week I had one that ended up green... it was... well... interesting LOL! But I love them!

my razor

Yes. My razor. I love this thing so much. I really wouldn't want to try and live my life without it... but if it came right down to it, I probably could. I just wouldn't want to... and neither would anyone else hahaha!!!


Melissa and I go on random scrapbooking rampages. I love scrapbooking, but it's so dang time consuming! This picture is actually the header we used for our scrapbooking blog... unfortunately, we haven't kept it very updated :(

cake dates

Cake dates started a few years back at McCollege (aka monroe community) with my friend Deb. We would go to a local dessert place and eat cake and just talk and talk. I really miss those times and am really hoping that we might be able to do it again soon. If not, I'm tempted to find someone else to do cake dates with me... I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket! :) anyone want in???

Well there you have it! I had fun with this, and I hope you feel like you know a side of me you didn't necessarily know before :) Don't forget there is a prize at stake here, so I hope you'll join in on the fun!

I'm really trying to get mine together despite in-laws and paretns visiting and Chloe hogging the computer room for selfish things like sleeping!

This was fun to read!!
I want to do it, but I'm very bad at pie charts/numbering things. Can I do it without the chart?
