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

Well, hi!

I am so excited to kick off my Summer Linky: These Are a Few of My Favorite Things.  

Although, just so you know, I’m still in school! I have another week and a half to go until I’m sleepin’ in and layin’ out :)

The first Favorite Things topic is “Morning Must-Haves”.  I have quite a few things that help my mornings go smoothly, so without further ado…
The first thing I reach for in the morning are my face wipes.  I wash my face every night before bed, but I feel like there’s always a trace of mascara or bronzer left over.  Plus, these are sooo easy and they make me feel fresh and clean. {So fresh and so clean, clean ;)}
I used to watch the news while I got ready, and I watch the Today show all summer long, but during the school year I get ready to music instead.  I pop my iPhone in the dock and go about getting ready.  Music always puts me in a better mood, and it’s much less distracting {and depressing} than local news.
It doesn’t have to come from Starbucks, but I love me an iced latte or caramel macchiato.  I NEED caffeine in the morning.  I’m sure it’s mostly mental, but caffeine is a must-have or my day just.isn’t.right!
Preston and Steve
I’m a faithful listener of the Preston & Steve Show on WMMR.  I literally laugh out loud on my way to work every morning. Belly laughs and an iced caramel macchiato…is there a better way to start out a morning? I don’t think so!


Once I get to school I have to eat and I’m all about convenience.  I pretty much alternate between Jimmy Dean turkey sausage sandwiches and Quaker Real Medley’s in Apple Walnut.

So there you have it! My morning must-haves “school-year edition”.  I hope that maybe you found a few new favorite things to try.

I can’t wait to read about your “Morning Must-Haves”.

  16. Oh my gosh!!! LOVE caramel macchiato!! I spent a summer in Poland while in college and fell in L-O-V-E with it. While its not quite the same as in Poland, at least I can buy the flavor at the grocery and start my day off right! I have to keep one jug at home and one at school.


  17. I haven't blogged all week, but I couldn't miss your linky!

  18. Those face wipes are my favorite! Just found your linky.... I plan to link up soon!
