10 Things I Couldn’t Live Without.

10 Things I Couldn’t Live Without. Write a list of the 10 things you need (or love) most.
Nail Clippers.  Dead serious.  I have paper thin nails and if one chips then I spend the rest of the day trying to rip at it until it is all even again, but we all know that that can't happen, so basically I rip until I can get myself to a pair of nail clippers and make everything even and smooth again.  Drives me nuts otherwise.  OCD?  Maybe.
How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days.  Hands down the best movie to quote from.  Karlie and I will still randomly text each other quotes from that movie.  If I ever quote a movie and say "where is that from" nine times out of ten, you can say How To Lose a Guy in Ten Days and you'd be right.  "You let it die!"  HA!
Hoodies.  If I could, I'd probably get married in a hoodie.  I mean seriously, it has everything.  Warmth.  Comfort, drawstrings, a pouch...who didn't want to be a kangaroo in another life?  Not because of the kangarooness, but because you had an extra little pouch to put things in?  mmmm....hoodies.
My straightener.  I am not one of those people who can jump out of the shower and run a comb through my hair and leave for the day.  I must dry my hair and straighten it.  LOVE straighteners.  It makes my life so much easier.  I am so lucky to live in a day of electricity!
My bed.  MY bed.  I love my bed.  It is so comfortable.  I never want to get out of it.  Never.  I did a post one time dedicated to how wonderful my bed is.  Because it is.  I really don't think that there is a more comforting place than one's bed.  The only other bed that is more comfortable than mine is my parent's bed.  Oh my goodness.  If my bed is a cloud, then theirs is whatever is above a cloud.  If only I could kick my parents out of their bed while I'm at home. 
My phone.  You can use your cell phone for so many things now!  I mean, seriously.  I have a relaxation app that I can turn on if I can't fall asleep.  I can text a friend (or pretend to text a friend) to get out of awkward situations.  Pay my bills, search the internet, talk to people (but not really since I hate talking on the phone, texting is what I do best), check the weather, play games with my sister, send pictures, etc etc etc.  I feel naked if I forget my phone.  I was waiting for my sister to pick me up at the airport a couple weeks ago and wondered how people used to do that without phones?! 
My car.  We all know that I'm a control freak.  I like to be able to come and go as I please.  Nuff said.
Insulin.  I think this is obvious.  I would have been dead a long time ago without my diabetes supplies.  Besides, I spend all my money on diabetes stuff, so that's what I must love the most, right??
Family.  I really think I would die without my family.  Seriously, I am a very lucky little girl.  I have parents and siblings who support me and love me no matter what I say or do.  When life is crappy and your friends just aren't or can't be there for you, family is. 
The Gospel.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ is what keeps me going.  In the world that we live in today, I am so lucky that I have a testimony.  When all else fails, I can fall to my knees and pray to my Heavenly Father and know that everything is going to work out, that I know the gospel is true.  The scriptures give me strength and comfort.  He has never failed to carry me through my trials, for this, I am grateful for.
