Top 2 Tuesday: Things I can't live without



It's Top 2 Tuesday over at the undomestic momma! Today's topic is two things you can't live without, this excludes the obvious things like Jesus, Mr. B, family, friends and TV.

So here we go, my top two things:
1. iPhone. I can't even imagine having a normal phone any more. Honestly I am not even sure how I could live. Ok, that might be a bit of a stretch. But really...it would be so weird to not be able to go on facebook, twitter, blogs, check my emails, google anything, follow the map when I'm lost, listen to music, watch movies, take pictures, record videos- everything. The real question is- what can't I do with this phone?? A sad, slightly embarrassing fact about me: when I wake up in the middle of the night to check the time I always go on and check fb and twitter too. It's a habit.
Cute little Roxie ( I hope we get new pics soon!!) as my wallpaper, I am aware that the time is an ugly, odd number and yes it is bothering me, I debated whether or not to take another picture, and I am also in love with my phone cover.

2. Fan. It's an inherited trait in the Grace family. I can not sleep without a fan. I can if I absolutely have to, but it takes me for.ever. It normally takes me a long time anyways because my mind never turns off {isn't that so frustrating?? Why is it necessary to replay the entire day and think about the next 50 days?} I hate sleeping in silence. Who am I kidding...there is no silence with Mr. B's snoring, scratching, talking and various mouth noises he does in his sleep, but I can't sleep with that either. I love white noise and the hum of the fan is the perfect sound to drift me off into dreamland.

One day Mama Grace told Papa G to pick up a big fan for the living room because it was a really hot summer day. Well he took her very literal and he came home with this beast. A huge industrial fan that sounded like a plane taking off --wasn't exactly what she had planned for the living room. It was impossible to watch TV and have the fan on at the same time which is clearly a BIG problem. Although this fan was not the right fit for the living room, it is so amazing to sleep with. I think about it all the time, specifically when our current fan fails at completely blocking out the love of my life while he sleeps, therefore results in waking me up. Not a fan. No pun intended. Yeah right... totally intended that pun. Pretty clever if I do say so myself.


What are 2 things you can't live with out??

PS. Just finished Day 6 Level 2!

Cute cover! Where'd you get it?

Oh wow. I've met my twin. I would say the exact same two things. First off, iphone. HELLO?! Who has one that wouldn't put this in their top 2?? I don't have facebook or twitter, but I do have Words with Friends. It's an obsession...I mean fun thing to do.
And a fan. Holy cow. I can't sleep without one either. I remember, whenever I would stay at my grandparents house, the only time I even tried to fall asleep was when their loud air conditioner turned on. Music to my ears.
When I was little, my mom would blow dry my hair when I went to bed and I'm convinced that's why I now need a fan.

My 2 things (other than the obvious) are: my computer and my phone. Ok I'm not in the cool iPhone club YET but I do love me some blackberry :)

Mrs. B said...

I love your picks this week! I'm totally the same about the fan, too! I HAVE to sleep with one every night (love the noise), and if I don't, I just sit there listening to the silence and it takes me forever to actually fall asleep. I'm glad I'm not the only one that does this! I'll have to let my husband know, b/c he thinks I'm crazy. ;)

Mrs. Hesson said...

Love the picks. Except I finally got out of sleeping with a fan and NOW I can't sleep WITH one. Haha. Hubby is the exact opposite, but I've tried. I can't stand the noise anymore. Has to be completely silent!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours - I'm your newest follower?

OMG - you're getting a boxer puppy? I'm dying for a puppy in my house! Oh so badly. I love pic of her. They are seriously the cutest pups. I posted tons of pictures of Dixie on my blog on her birthday March 10th. They can be SUPER energectic, but they are so loving and great with children. Can't wait to see pics of the little girl.

I love your blog! I look forward to reading your hilarious ramblings every day. I swear your thoughts are so in sync with mine sometimes... you just express it so much better than I do on the screen!

I can't believe your phone lets your battery get that low! Mine shuts off every 5 minutes when it gets down to 20% power. It's obnoxious! Maybe it's because mine is the 1st generation?
