My Daily Survival Tools.

We're all creatures of habit, and need certain things in the day to function--otherwise, we'd probably be miserable, cranky, or lost. Amanda over @ Chasing Twins did a post on her "Daily Tools" and it got me thinking of mine.....

1. My Epic 4g Android.

It's funny to think that my whole world revolves around this little 5 inch device. But it really does. It's my alarm clock, my inbox, my mini movie theater, my social media outlet, my mobile bank, my GPS, my calendar, my game arcade, my love, my life...and oh,'s a phone too.

2. Starbucks.

Tall white chocolate mocha's and mocha frappucino's to be exact. I've tried to stray away and play the field--see what other coffee brands have to offer. But I always go running back to the arms of my one true ♥ love....

3. The Talk

I don't really watch television during the day (I prefer the classier wig pulling/table tossing reality entertainment of the night. haha) The only daytime show I watch is, The Talk. I've watched it since day one and I love it. Even if I don't get to watch it live, I set it to record to watch it later on in the day.

4. Pandora

If there is one thing you should know about me, is that I love music. I'm ALWAYS listening to music ( and thanks from a tip from my brother) I started using Pandora about 2/3 years ago. As I'm typing this now, I have my Pandora station set to my Bruno Mars radio. I listen to anything from Ella Fitzgerald to Eminem. From 70's music to salsa--I like it all. I have the Pandora mobile app on my phone too.

5. Nick Jr.

Hey, mommy needs some quiet time too. Don't judge me--It works. Every time I need to get some uninterrupted time to get things done, I turn on Nick Jr and one of these characters will captivate my daughter's attention. This is what I like to call a win-win situation.

6. Warm Tea.

One cup of warm tea at night, and all my day's worries are gone. Plus it helps me sleep like a baby. I highly recommend it.

That's it! Those are the things that get me through the day. (Or at least the things I could think of.) What are yours?


  1. My iPhone and Coffee!!! Also Nick Jr because you are right mommy needs some quiet time!

  2. Who makes it through the day without Starbucks?? =)

  3. OK, sista... I knew we were soulmates but to find out your Pandora was set on Bruno Mars station just as mine ... this is too much!!!;)

  4. I'm jealous about the phone - I'm stuck with a Blackberry Storm 2 until June. :( I can't wait to get a phone that actually does what it's suppose to do! ;)

    The rest are also MUSTS at our house, too! I love Pandora and Nick Jr. is one of the only stations on our TV while the kids are awake! I have to admit, though, that I am guilty of substituting the Warm Tea for a glass of wine now and then! :)

  5. Shelly: I don't know WHAT I would do without Nick Jr. It's a lifesaver.

    Amy: I don't know..crazy people. :)

    Julia: You see! Great stylish minds think alike!!

    Krajcimama: Sorry about the phone, I had a BB for YEARS and just recently converted to an Android! Best. Move. Ever.

    I'm not much of a wine drinker, but I can't blame anyone with kids who does! haha.

  6. Really? The Talk?! I'm a View girl ;)


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I always make time to read each and every one. ♥
