These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: Morning Must-Haves

I've made  a little change to my blog that you may not have noticed, I am now a .com. You should still be able to follow my blog the same way as before and the old blogger address automatically will send you to my new address.

You can also follow my blog in a new way. If you use Google Reader, this is going away on July 1st. I would love it if you follow my blog through Bloglovin. I just recently started using it and it's pretty awesome!
I'm linking up with Halle at Across the Hall in Second Grade for her fun linky party.

This week's topic is our morning must haves. Being a teacher has turned me into a morning person. I'm not gonna lie that it was rough getting up the first couple of years. But now I am at school bright and early. I like to be there about an hour before school starts so I can get things done. (mostly for peace and quiet --don't tell my secret!!!!)

I like to have the news on while I am getting ready. It makes me feel more prepared for the day.

I love anything by Aveeno. I always start and end my day by washing my fave with their Clear Complexion foaming cleanser.
One of my new favorite finds is this palette by Urban Decay. It has a bronzer, highligher, and blush all together. You can mix them or apply them separately. It's hard to find a bronzer that doesn't make my fair skin look weird but this one really works. 

I am a breakfast gal. I don't know how some of you don't eat breakfast before school each day. I can't even think without breakfast. Anyways, I get so tired of cereal after a while but I usually eat a mix of Honey Nut Cheerios and plain Cheerios with skim milk.

I try to read my daily devotional while I eat breakfast. I don't always remember if I'm in a hurry or have other things on my mind but I try. It sets my day off on a better path when I do.

 I love iced coffee. There is a Starbucks near my home and it often gets me in trouble. I sometimes buy the International Delight iced coffee and it's pretty good too but not nearly as strong as Starbucks. I also love Starbucks' chai tea. Yum!
My new car has XM radio. I love listening to it in the morning because there is no talk or commercials. My favorite station so far is Pop2K (channel 10).

What are your morning must haves?


  1. Hmmm...I love Urban Decay's eyeshadows, so I am very curious about that palette you shared! Especially if it works well with fair skin.

  2. I found you through Halle's linky- I love sbux's Chai tea too, and I've seen that Naked Palette around but haven't bought it. Maybe I'll look into it!

  3. (Sorry if you get a billion comments from me...I am having issues.) I LOVE xm radio. I have it in my new car and used to have it in my old car for a few years. I used to listen to Cosmo radio in the morning (Wake Up with Taylor) and would always get a good laugh. It is the only talk radio I ever actually listened to.

  4. Ok, I totally need that bronzer! I agree, bronzer on us fair-skinned gals is hard to do! I have their eye shadow palette and I'm obsessed!

    Thanks so much for linking up!

  5. I am Chai tea kind of girl too.. Although I do love a good cup of coffee!! I must say -- I envy you for having time to watch the news and read your devotional. I am usually scrambling around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get everything done so I can make it to school. However, I do get to school about 30 minutes early. My husband is convinced I just like the rush and excitement of being in a hurry.. Not so sure about that!!


  6. I love Urban Decay make-up. I can play in Ulta or Sephora for hours if left on my own! I also love my Starbucks iced mochas... and can't imagine riding in my car without XM {what did we ever do before satellite radio?} Hope you have a great Monday!
