A few things that I CAN NOT LIVE with out. :)

I have been thinking about a few things that I can not live with out, these are my must have things! Things that I could never and will never live with out.
I can not live with out my converse.  I usually get a new pair every 1-2 years and I usually keep my old ones.   My first pair of converse was when I was 16 and they were black high top and I embroidered flowers on them.  :) I am due for a new pair and I didn't know that now you can now design your own.
I can't live with out caffeine.  I am so heavily addicted to caffeine based products.  A couple of years ago I tried to give it up for New Years, and I lasted maybe 2 weeks before I CAVED in to the cravings.  I am so weak, but I do love caffeine.  I have been debating on getting a coffee cozy.  Isn't this one super cute?
I can't live with out glasses.  Not very many people know this but, I secretly wear glasses.. 98% of the time I wear contacts and I am blind with out wearing contacts or glasses.  I asked my husband, what I can't live with out.  He said- You mean besides me? Your glasses because you always run in to everything when you don't wear them.  I do think I might need a new pair or maybe an old pair.. something vintage!
I can't live with out television.  When I am on vacation and out of my house it is super easy to go with out television, but when I am home I need it on or I start hearing noises in the house.  :) Anyone else the same way?

I can not live with out the all the boys in my life  :) They have me trapped!
 What can you not live with out?

I agree with you that I cannot live without CAFFEINE! I am an addict. Before I was pregnant I seriously drank a pot of coffee every day...I just love the taste also:) I cannot live without music...I am addicted to Pandora.com because of the free music:)

Love those glasses by the way...If I wore glasses I would totally get some like those!

You can design your own?! I have to investigate.

I've only had glasses for a few years and contacts for a few months. I prefer the glasses for actual vision, but I think I still look like a stranger with them on.

The things I can't live without? A pen, lots of paper, and at least one of my cameras.

My two boys (Christian and CK). I could probably live without them but I wouldn't want to...

What a great post! I definitely agree with you on a few of these points - I couldn't be without my fiance or my cat and my glasses or contacts are a must! I don't really watch much TV but when I'm home alone at night, I have a tendency to turn it on because otherwise every noise I hear freaks me out - and I hear lots of noises because I'm in an old rowhome. I couldn't live without certain food items either - there are too many for me to choose just one! But I love dried cranberries, chips and salsa, guacamole, and Reese's peanut butter cups. And tea!

Andrew. Glasses/contacts. Kleenex. Books. Projects.

I think everything else is pretty flexible. :)

Felicity said...

I think you should get that monkey cozy, it's so fun and cute!

I can't live without chocolate, a hoodie, and my purple Kangaroos! : )

I too am blind without my glasses/contacts. It's pretty bad and I look like a big goofball in my coke-bottle glasses. I can't live without coffee either and like you, I love having the TV on for noise. I can't live without my husband and cat and find it hard to go without a computer nowadays too.

great list! tea, for sure. though I'm the opposite about caffeine- it does terrible things to me and I get horribly high strung and simultaneously depressed. Noooo good whatsoever.

i would die without my camera. die i say. that's how much i love to take pictures. which, when you think about it, is pretty ridiculous. i also couldn't live without my carmex chapstick. it's my addiction.

Francesca said...

Ooh! Design your own converse! Hurrah!

After 6 months off, I am recently re-addicted to coffee. I've got one beside me right now. I also need music - just a few songs each day or I go a bit nutty. And I need my camera and notebook and pencil with me all the time!

I never think about the fact that I can't live without my glasses but its so true! I am also very blind and wear contacts and I would be oh so lost without them... oh and I couldn't live without pretty dresses and skirts <3

My MacBook and water! :)

Love your list. I can't live without caffeine either. I do have a special pillow I have slept with since I was little. Can't live without it. And my husband of course...

I also have a converse addiction although I just traded mine in for my classic vans... I also almost always have to have some noise in my house (music,t.v.) even when I sleep... it is horrible :-p

Tracey said...

Haha, I love the things on your list and can see a few commonalities with my own! :)

I adore converse and have always had at least two pairs in my wardrobe since teenage years. I love that you can design your own, though I'm really wanting a bright yellow pair next! :D

I love caffeine too, I just can't function without at least one awesome coffee a day - it's my one vice!

I definitely didn't know you wear glasses, and I'd love to see what pair you get next ... go with the vintage option for sure!

I'm a bit of a 'Scaredy Cat' at home especially if my husband is away - there's nothing quite like the good company of television.

jen said...

my list is similar to yours...
my coffee, my 'kids' (pug & cat), tv noise (it's on right now...), warm socks!
oh, and converse!! i don't have any now but i have mourned the disappearance of my 'knee-hi' grey/pink converse I bought in 7th grade. I saved babysitting money until i could afford those $32 beauties!! ahhh...the good ol' days...

The monkey cozies are great!
