My subject is What are the top 3 things you cannot live without? It was submitted by  Here goes:

Here I sit Thursday night writing this…It’s been crazy and lately and I’m trying to get it all done. Anyway, there are so many things I can’t live without, so I had to put them into categories.

It goes without saying that I could never live without my son, hubby, or dog.


  • Key Lime Pie – yes, I just love it.
  • Napoleon Cake – my mom got me hooked on it at my bridal shower, and I have loved it ever since. 
  • Chocolate Pudding with a graham cracker crust – how can anything be better?


Favorite Meals:

  • Nachos sans jalapenos – nothing better than a HUGE plate of nachos with the works. 
  • Sushi with extra wasabi- I LOVE sushi…could eat it almost every night
  • linguini with muscle – loved it from when I was a teen….



  • Peapod Delivery – they rock and make my life so much easier as a working mom
  • FlyLady System – sometimes I slack off, but without her system I would be lost
  • Cozi Calendar – what a great site, calendar, and app…so love all that it does. 



  • Books on CD – forget music, I NEED my books on CS, I need to get lost in a story. If by chance I am caught without a book, it’s a long and boring ride.
  • morning grilled cheese/egg sandwich – yes, I do eat that every morning, it’s cheaper than going to a deli and super easy to make. 
  • coffee in travel mug – traveling without a coffee would make me a VERY tired mommy 


What makes me smile:

  • Dino’s smile, laugh, hugs, and kisses
  • morning grilled cheese/egg sandwich – yes, I do eat that every morning, it’s cheaper than going to a deli and super easy to make. 
  • coffee in travel mug – traveling without a coffee would make me a VERY tired mommy 



  • Cadbury chocolate bar
  • Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
  • Melted Hersey kisses and peanut butter

  1. Key lime pie is my very favorite dessert! I adore it!! And I could eat sushi every day, too!! I know you won’t believe this since you have it every morning, but I’ve never had a grilled cheese and egg sandwich! It sounds delicious! I’m totally trying this!! –Lisa

  2. With Lisa on this and Key Lime Pie is my absolute favorite, too. Seriously, my mother-in-law always buys me my favorite one from the freezer section in the grocery store at holidays, because she knows this about me. Loved your list though and wishing you a heat weekend now!! 🙂

  3. THis was a great idea for the prompt. After our family and pets, of course a girl’s answer should involve chocolate and coffee. Throwing books in is the cherry on top. Now, I HAVE to find a good life organization system 🙂

  4. Love the Reese’s peanut butter cups!
    Chocolate pudding pie with graham cracker crust is by far a favorite around here too.

  5. I am eating a grilled egg and cheese on flatbread as I type this. I kid you not. Also. Now I have to go check out all those organization sites because that’s my new thing. So thanks, I think, for that. Sincerely, A crazy working mom. =)

  6. You are a serious foodie! Your list is definitely make me want to try things like the chocolate pudding! Ahhh! Sounds yummy! :). I can’t live without my hubby and son’s kisses now either! Love it now that my son gives real kisses 🙂

Would love to read your thoughts
