Sometimes you just need reliability. And here it is.

Taking a cue from the editor of Real Simple, I started thinking about those things in my life that 100% reliable.  Fail safe.  Dependable.  Solid.  The Rocks that keep me sane.  So I’m sharing with you thing things that I can always, always count on and then I’m going to tag some folks to get their lists as well.  Enjoy!  (oh, any by the way, people I tag, this blog better be on your list! 🙂 )

1.  Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream ~ It smells like lemons…good enough to eat and it does amazing things for my nails. 

2.  Kissing Chloe on the top of her head ~ she’s the cleanest kitty ever and her head is so soft and she always smells so good.  Plus, she’s my baby!

3.  Hearing “In My Life” by the Beatles ~ I danced to this song with my dad as the father-daughter wedding dance.  Although it makes me cry (EVERY time!) it makes me so happy.

4.  Groth Savignon Blanc ~ Crisp, dry, not too fruity.  Oh, it’s the best for a hot day.  Or a cold day.  It’s so, so good.

5.  Zappos.com ~ All the shoes I could ever want.  I can buy them, have them shipped free the next day and if, on the off chance I don’t like them in person, I can send them back for free.  It’s like shoe shopping in a store without all the stupid people. 

6.  The Jayhawks, Rainy Day Music ~ Hands down, one of the best CDs ever

7.  My pewter hair clip ~ It matches everything.  It holds all of my hair without showing any signs of weakness (and I have a LOT of hair!).  Plus, my best friend, Jen stole it from Filene’s Basement in 1997 when I needed a classy hair clip to match my first power suite. It is still going strong over 10 years later.

8.  Yaki Maki sushi roll from Go Fish in Mystic, CT.  It’s a twist on a California roll…it has smoked salmon on top that is slightly warmed.  Good God, it is the BEST.

9.  Lily of the Valley ~ My favorite scent and it always has a calming effect on me. 

10. L’Oreal Nature’s Blush Lipstick ~ Honestly, ladies, this shade looks good on everyone.  And it matches everything. 

11.  Cuisinart Emulsion Stick Blender ~ Very versatile.  It’s good for whipping cream, making meringue, gazpacho…basically anything that needs to be blended or whipped.  Awesome.  Love it.

12.  Pasta with butter & salt ~ My go-to meal.  If there is nothing else in the house (or even if the house is loaded with food) this is my favorite meal. 

With that….now I’d like to hear from:  Anna, Mike, Molly, CuriousC, & Hallie!
