Friend Makin' Monday: You Wanna Know?


It's Friend Makin' Monday again and our topic this week is all about:

"The Top Things You Can Not Live Without!"

As there are few things in life we truly can not live without..... God, family, shelter, food...I did some serious soul searching today to think of what I truly can not "live" without.

The Message. I recently joined an online Bible study, Bloom, where we are reading through the book Crazy Love. (BTW, is anyone else doing this??) A few years back, hubby had given me The Message, which is the Bible written in contemporary language. I have been using it again with this study and was reminded of how great a tool this Bible is. Yes, it is an interpretation of the Bible, but it really puts it in a frame of mind that I understand & relate to so much better than the NIV version.

Anything Apple. I fell in love with Apple when I bought my first Mac in 2004. I have never looked back. I love my iPod. I love my iPhone. I love my Mac. And I feel shaky when I leave home with out my iPhone. Yes, I am that addicted.

Bumbo! I need to buy stock in this puppy- I have been blogging about the Bumbo all last week. Can't eat dinner without the Bumbo so Bubba Boy can join us. Seriously, we went to brunch yesterday with family and sat him in the middle of the table to watch us eat. It worked great.

Burt's Bees. You'll notice this one makes every list we blog about- favorite item, can't live without, one item to take on a desert island. It's all about the tingly feeling you get while using.
Books. I think college ruined my ability to sleep. I fell asleep every time I opened a textbook- somehow still graduated with honors though! And now I can not fall asleep without reading a book. I even have trouble falling back asleep at 3 in the morning. I have to go read in the guest bedroom to put myself back to sleep. Is that a problem?

Some of the books on my nightstand right now:

Books made my list too! My husband has the IPhone and he's addicted to it. I'm jealous. We used to use the Bumbo seat when the kiddos were tiny and absolutely loved it.

Happy Friend Makin Monday. Thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to reading more of yours.

Christie said...

I love apple products too (although I don't have a mac) and the BeesWax chapstick. I think I'm going to have to look into the book Crazy Love-thanks for the tip.

Good luck with the toy store contest, your video is cute!

I have watched the video and passed it along.
I am becoming a mac fan. We do everything at the newspaper with macs so they are becoming a big part of my world.
I am also a huge fan of Burt's Bees. The lip balm was great this summer when I burnt my lips.
Happy FMM!

Trudy said...

Great list Becca! I love books too and will definitely have to check out Crazy Love...sounds like an awesome book and I've never heard of the author?!

Happy FMM!

Brandy said...

An online Bible Study...how cool is that. I love books too, best thing ever. I need to get back into my reading. I also love apple products. I don't have any but I've used them and they are wonderful. I'm working my way towards an iPhone.

Jessica said...

The Message sounds like something I need to try! Thanks for sharing that!

Lindsay said...

ooo great list.. I'm not a fan of mac.. mostly because in my opinion overpriced now that they use the same hardware as PCs. But I love my ipod :-). Sorry crazy IT person here ;-). How are you liking your books?

Lora said...

Great list! I love the Message Bible, too, and Burt's Bees:)

Thanks for dropping by *my place*!
