I Don't Want to Live Without It!

It's Friend Makin' Monday again over at Kasey's.

Today we are sharing 10 things that we can't live without. I know I have listed a few of these before...I love them...can't help it!

1. Filtered water and food. Of course I can't live without these...who can?

2. My camera and pictures. I've always thought to myself if there was a fire in the house after the kids...I would grab pictures! Of course, when we were talking about this to our 5 year old the other day....about our fire safety plan. He chimes in that he will grab the Wii! Oh, no you don't! Get out of the house...even if you are naked! (You never know with Caden!)

3. Magic Erasers. They work like a charm. My favorite cleaning item! A must have for moms! The finger painting today got all over the sink, wall, and light switch. No problem. Magic eraser to the rescue!

4. Bible...... I love God's Holy Word. Getting a new Bible is one of my favorite gifts.

5. Organic coconut Oil. This is great to cook with and will not turn into trans fat at high temperatures as EVOO will. If your EVOO is starting to smoke it is turning into trans fat!!

I also am using it on my skin. I just starting using it at night and after I shower. You do have to give it a few minutes to let it soak in. I am loving how soft my skin feels. I have also heard to use it for your hair. I have not tried that yet!

6. Shout...with boys I've got to have a strong stain lifter! However, I would like to try making my own detergent!

8. Green smoothies! (Sometimes my blueberries) I love them. I have had one almost everyday since I started them less than a month ago. I believe I am addicted to them...yeah a good addiction! I miss it when I do not have one. I feel so good when I drink one! I blogged about it in a previous post here.

9. Prayer. I could not live without the power of prayer. I do not want one day to go by without talking and listening to my Savior.

10. A definitely do not want to live without the cuddle time in the mornings, smiles, and "I love you" makes my day and puts a spring into my step!

Have a blessed day!

momma said...

i like your list! i forgot about how wonderful those magic erasers are!!! (probably because my kiddies aren't allow markers any more - long story, and 2 boxes of magic erasers!!)

we drink a lot of protein shakes with the flax seeds and fruits. i might have to try your green smoothie!

Renee said...

I didn't know that about EVOO. That's a bummer.

We buy shout from the warehouse stores because we use so much of it.

I love the photo at the top of your blog.

Hi, That is a nice list. I havn't heard about organzic coconut oil. I will have to look for it. I like natural things. Thanks. Have a great week.

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

Hey! I'm with your son- grab the Wii!! :)))

Those green smoothies sound intriguing!

Great list- have a wonderful week!


Nancy said...

Well, hello to another smarty pants, then!! :)

Good list. I have and use coconut oil...still love the olive oil, too, though! And yes, magic eraser are, well, magic!!

Pam said...

Hi Loved your list! I didn't make it this week.
Have a great week!

Kim said...

Rhonda great list. I am not sure i am going to post this week. I am about out of energy and dinner dishes need done! Enjoy your day!

OK, how did I forget to say prayer? That's definitely a must-have!

Miller Racing Family said...

Love your list! I totally agree with you on the cuddle time. How I seem to love it even more now that Trey is older. I also agree with you on the photos! I have all of mine on CD's in a fireproof safe. Since my aunt has been our photographer since Trey was born she has a copy of all the photos. Thank goodness for backups. Hope you had a blessed day!

I am a big filtered water drinker, too. We have a cooler with those big bottles and I love it so much. We get them filled at a local health food store for a mere $.39 per gallon. Way cheaper than bottles and it's hot or cold at the touch of a button. Hot chocolate any time I want it...yummy.
I am a big fan of Magic Erasers too!

Christie in Dallas, TX said...

I love that Caden is going to keep the Wii safe! How did we ever live without those magic erasers??

Amber said...

Great list girl! Those 2 are some of my staples as a mommy {Eraser & Shout}.

I'm not so sure on that coconut oil. It is HIIIIIIIIIIGH in fat!! My dad used to use that I would never use it. But I get what you're saying on the EVOO. :)

And ooooh, a blue smoothie sounds good!

Kelli said...

I love getting a new Bible. I was just telling my husband that I wanted another one and he laughed at me. There's nothing like it. Great list!

Lela Lyman said...

We tried your smoothies and love them. Georgia and I have been morning smoothie drinkers for a long time, but we have always been scared to add veggies - glad we did! Love to read your blog.

Carrie said...

Rhonda thank you so much for your kind words they mean alot to me!

Magic Erasers are the best!

Shawn said...

I'm a little late commenting, so we'll call this Friend Makin' Wednesday.

Love your list and I'm glad to see you're still drinking your green smoothies, one of us should be healthy!

I just bought a new Bible and I love it. It's a NIV/The Message Parallel Bible, it really cool to see two versions of the same verse side by side.

Have a great day!
