13 Must Haves for 2008

Thirteen Must Haves for 2008

1. Housekeeper - I can't stress how much time she saves me not to mention the fact that I love coming home to a clean house!

2. Manicure / pedicure - Somehow I never seem to fit these into my schedule!

3. New Music - Might I recommend Maroon 5's It won't be soon before long - Gossip or Dax Riggs?

4. Time Off - I never seem to have enough time to relax. Just ask yourself, what are you doing working so hard that you can rarely, if ever, kick back and enjoy it?

5. Fun Books - Jack Cafferty's It's Getting Ugly Out Here is good for starters

6. Recycle Bins - If we don't take care of Mother Nature then we have no right to think she'll take care of us.

7. Sumptuous Bath Towels - I'm SO in love with the massive Egyptian cotton bath sheets. I wrap one around me and it feels like heaven.

8. Lindt Truffles - My favorite chocolate in the world.

9. Off Button for the television. We've become a nation of people who watch others live their lives. So get off the couch and out into the sunshine!

10. Body Butter - from - I highly recommend the Orange's HEAVEN.

11. Something to love - it could be a pet, a stuffed animal, a pillow - it doesn't matter. The only criteria is that every time you look at it you smile.

12. Soft Clothes - I'm talking about something sinful to kick back in at home. No, not your husband's boxers - maybe a stretch velvet jumpsuit? Cashmere? Something fabulously expensive that you wouldn't buy for yourself - but you deserve it!

13. A wish - Everyone needs to have a wish. I don't mean you should wish for a new car - pick something that no one else knows - a secret wish - and you never know...this year it just might come true!

I was shocked over the holidays to find out my BIL, his wife and 3 kids, are fantastic recyclers - they throw away 1 bag of trash a week! For a family of 5, that's flipping amazing.

A fabulous list that hits all the hot points for me - thank you.

Holly Smith said...

All of those sound wonderful! Great list!

Aack! I'm trying to get caught up on the blogs I missed while out of town and your mention of a housekeeper reminded me that I've got much more to do tonight before she gets here tomorrow. You know: cleaning for the cleaning lady. (at least it's just the kids' stuff and I'm not going to scrub the toilets or anything for her)
