1. Soma Vanishing Edge Underwear
These underwear will change your life. Not even kidding. They are like the holy grail of undergarments. They don't leave a panty line (even in pants as tight as yoga pants) AND they have a gripping material inside the leg that makes sure they stay in place. No panty lines, no wedgies, pure awesomeness. Trust me on this, you won't want to wear anything else after you try them. The put VS to shame.

2. Tervis Tumblers
Hot drinks, cold drinks, to go drinks, these cups do it all. You can put them in the dishwasher. They don't sweat, even when you take them outside is 115 degree Turkish heat. The largest size has a thing bottom so it still fits in a cup holder. Drop them? No worries, they don't break. These are the best cups ever.
3. My Keurig
I'm a coffee drinker but my husband is not, hence the need for something that does not require making an entire pot. The Keurig fits that bill and does so much more! I make iced tea, hot chocolate, iced coffee, chai lattes, and all kinds of coffee. It's super easy to use and takes very little maintenance in the cleaning department. Some of my favorite K-Cups are: Island Coconut Coffee, Newman's Own Extra Bold, and Southern Sweet Iced Tea. (If you don't have a brewer and want to buy one on their website send me your email and you and I both get 2 free boxes of K-Cups!)
4. Erin Condren Life Planner
Clearly with a degree in Library Science I'm into organization (and a tad bit nerdy). Planners are on of my favorite things to buy in the organization department. In fact I often buy a few a year because I find one I like better. I'm pretty picky about my planners, I need both month and week view, note pages, birthday calendars, and easy to find pages. This planner has it all and more! It's an inch thick worth of amazingness. With tabbed months, colorful weekly pages, note pages, a zippered pouch, a pocket page for receipts, a birthday calendar, important information pages, colorful stickers, and coordinating personalized gift tags- it really is the best planner. PLUS, it's personalized, so my name is on the front. My southern self LOVES anything personalized.
5. Sweaty Bands
While teaching Zumba I am constantly battling with headbands. I either have to pin them on, and sometimes even then they don't stay, or they squeeze my head so tight I feel like my brain my leak out of my ears. Not so with Sweaty Bands. Some how these super cute things stay on your head without squeezing your brains out or using bobby pins. In fact, just this past week I ran a 7K and forgot I had on the zebra one. It didn't move an inch! Must have for anyone who works out.
6. Photo Albums
I don't have the patience for scrapbooking in the crafty sense, so these photo books are the perfect option for my travel photos. Recently Snapfish had a buy 1 get two free deal so I finally got around to scrapbooking our three years of travels from Germany. So glad to have these memories put together in super cute books!
7. This Blog Post
This post on IF etiquette is one of the best I've seen. It's honest, it's thorough, and it left me saying AMEN! after every line. I highly recommend that anyone who is dealing with IF/Loss, or is close to someone who is, check out this post.
