"must haves"

It's always kind of fun to see what people's "must haves" are. So I rounded up my 10 favorite everyday "must haves" and gave a little explanation on why I can't live without them.

The sonicare is worth every penny! When I brush my teeth with this, I am not sure why, but I have 2 minutes of calmness, thinking time, and peace while I sit on the edge of the bathtub and let the sonicare clean my teeth. I cannot explain why I have these feelings, but hey, if a toothbrush can give me 2 minutes of peace...hey, I will take it!
The Sedu flat iron...I did a lot of research on which flat iron was the best. This is the one I came up with. I ordered it off of As most of you know I have very curly hair and let's not forget very coarse hair too. This flat iron gets my hair so straight and leaves it so shiny. It is so smooth when you pull it through your hair (doesn't pull out hair at all). It also is worth the money.
Cover girl super thick lash mascara in very black. No need for expensive mascara...this is the best one out there.
Nothing beats Bonnie Bell chap stick...enough said.

Pink Sugar by Aquolina, this perfume smells like candy, everyone wants to eat you! It isn't overpowering at all and everyone seems to love it.
The smell is why these are my favorite. It is an orange cream smell, not an orange peel smell (yuck). They also do disinfect the counter tops and table too.The hand held DYSON, a huge must have in our house...a quick and easy way to vacuum up all the crumbs. I don't do a lot of organic things, but this is one I love! The smell is great and I love everything about it! I also use the hand soap in the same scent, LAVENDER!
Mmmmmm!! Creamy Caramel wallflowers (plug ins) from Bath and Body Works (it's seasonal). It makes your house smell like you have been cooking yummies all day long.

This is my Isabella Fiore handbag, the greatest handbag ever! I have the matching wallet too, this is one item that I will never be able to replace. LOVE IT!!

I would love to see and hear about your everyday "must haves". Go ahead, round up your 10 favorite items, maybe one of them will become my next "must have"!

Luke's BIG day

Luke's first day of Kindergarten!

The whole day he said went great! He rode the bus with his brother (Gavin was nice enough to let him sit with him on the bus), after school they rode the bus home....but it took awhile because they wanted to put Luke on the wrong bus!!!! Lucky for Luke, Gavin came to his rescue and told them he rode the "blue" bus not the "pink" bus (our address is a little confusing to everyone). This whole ordeal did come with a few tears (from both Mounts boys, Gavin was so worried they were going to make his little brother ride the wrong bus), but they both made it home safe and sound!!!! That's what big brothers are for right?

Gavin on the first day of 4th grade.

If you were wondering why there is no picture of Luke, Kindergarten doesn't start until to follow!
