Not Just A Mom - Daily Must Haves

Hi there, welcome to our link up party! This month's topic Not Just A Mom is Daily Must Haves.  If you have a blog, please link up with us below.  And please check out the other posts linked below.

Things that I have to have/do everyday:

This is a no brainer for me.  I am one of those people who is literally addicted to caffeine.  On those very rare occasions where I have not had a coffee in the morning (like I can count on one hand the number of times this has happened) I will be met with a pretty bad headache.  I only started drinking coffee on a regular basis after my first son was born but now I love it so much, unapologetically so.

Apple Watch
I got my Apple Watch for Christmas and I wear it all day long.  I like to track my fitness, but even on days that I don't close my rings, I still like to see what I've done.  It has come in handy for more than I thought it would.

Bruush and Floss
I, of course, brush my teeth everyday (twice) and I have gotten into the habit (finally!) of flossing before bed.  I did not misspell brush above, it is instead the toothbrush I got for my birthday.  Dave has one too and they are pretty sleek.  Since I've started flossing on a regular basis, I get praise from my dentist on every visit.  It only took to my late 30s for me to figure this out!

I take Vitamin B12 and D and Iron supplements each day.  My iron has always been low so I need to take the pills and a couple of years ago my doctor recommended B12 as well.  And since we live in a northern climate and I am a sunscreen person, I need the D as well.

Saje Rollers
Now, I guess I don't use them every single day but I do most days.  I have the Immune roller which I use on my throat and chest at the slightly sign of a sniffle or sore throat.  I also have the Peppermint Halo one if I have a headache.  I know that most of their effectiveness is the placebo effect but I do call them my magic potions and I love them.

Hair Elastic
I have to have a hair elastic on my wrist everyday.  Even when I do my hair for the day (I flat iron it), it eventually ends up in a ponytail because I'm hot, cooking, or working out. I like these flat ones with the little tie.

  1. I am awful at remembering to floss! Good for you!

  2. I definitely brush and floss my teeth each day too but didn't think to add that to my list.

  3. I have those same hair ties and love them! I wish I was better about remembering to floss

  4. I need to start flossing regularly. I'm so bad at it. And I didn't used to drink coffee-hot chocolate regularly either until I had to get up at 5:30am to work. I need to start wearing a hair elastic on my wrist because I'm always asking Rachel if I can borrow hers!!!
