Three things – September 10


I don’t think that I’ve posted any Three Things related posts, but I’ve certainly seen Steph draft these posts on numerous occasions and they look fun, so I thought why not.  Here we go. Thanks for the idea, Steph. 🙂

Three experiences I recommend:

  • Scuba diving.  It’s like nothing else you’ve ever experienced.
  • The gift of traveling.
  • Falling in love and finding your mate.

Three pieces of advice for everyone:

  • Be kind and compassionate no matter what.
  • Rise above.
  • Never, ever let someone tell you your worth.

Three things I’d give up in a second:

  • Commuting two hours a day to and from work.
  • Anything for my family and close friends.
  • Anything for my dogs.

Three things that are always in my fridge:

  • Lettuce
  • Bacon
  • Eggs

Three things that are always in my freezer:

  • Bacon
  • Chicken
  • Ground beef or pork

Three things that are always in my pantry:

  • Pasta sauce
  • Perrier
  • Aluminum foil (yeah, weird one, I know.)

Three most often used makeup products:

  • Brow Zings
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara

Three things I’ll spend money on:

  • Lululemon. It’s expensive but I’ve been wearing their shit for well over a decade now and it lasts if you take care of it. 
  • Running shoes.
  • Aluminum foil. Cheap shit is garbage and is like tissue paper. lol 


Three things I won’t spend money on:

  • Cable <— I’m with Steph on this one. We haven’t had cable in I think 4 years now.
  • Magazines
  • Sunglasses. I lose or scratch sunglasses a lot so I usually just get $50 pairs. Anything more expensive than that would make me cry if I lost them.

    I see you are a carnivore. I like 🙂

    Also: Yes, to giving up long commutes, spending money on running shoes and mascara.

  • The advice is brilliant.
    Agree with spending on running shoes and not on magazines 🙂

  • Oh love this! What a fun list of things! I am with you on the cable. It’s so silly with Netflix and everything else you can get for relatively little $$.

    Also LULULEMON! Yes! I hate that their clothing is so expensive but I’m wearing their pants now and they are so damn comfy and they really do last forever. I will say I rarely wear their pants to work out in though, because hand washing them is a pain; but their tops are amazing for gym.

    What are brow zings?! Where have I been!!??

  • Cathy C Bennett

    OMDoodle – There’s no wine on your list girlfriend LOL What’s up with that? But I can relate to the “bacon” – love my pork!

  • I am! 🙂 Id love to be a vegetarian but yeah….
    I’d give up my commute for a pay cut if the price was right any day of the week. 🙂

  • I used to love reading magazines but they’re such a waste!

  • Girl, you do NOT have to hand wash lululemon I can assure you. Just don’t dry it that’s all. 🙂 I would not fair well with all my lulu gear and hand washing all that shit every day/week.

    Brow Zings is a Benefit eyebrow filler thing. It’s not cheap but it works (for me) and it lasts a long time, too. I have blond/sparse eyebrows so they’re perfect for what I need. 🙂

  • Your comment made me chuckle. LOL!

  • uhm. well, that’s a total game changer! LOL.. someone once mentioned having to hand wash everything so i was like, “welp, looks like i’m never wearing these clothes to the gym.” 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend, love!

  • I might’ve been that way 10+ years ago, but certainly is not the case. Of course, be careful of more delicate things if you’ve got mesh in the tights or what not.
    Wash away, my friend! 🙂
    Weekend was good and plenty of sunshine, I can’t complain. I hope yours was good, too. 🙂 xo
