Day 7: Five Favorites

Dang, this might be incredibly hard. I live in mommy land, and I definitely don't want to blog about just kid stuff, so, hmmmm, here we go!

1. Coffee. 

This is just coffee with sweetened condensed milk in it, topped with whipped cream. I don't usually have the whipped cream, and if you chill this concoction in the freezer for a while and then add ice, you'll have the most delicious iced coffee ever. So easy!

I have a sick love affair with coffee. I really am not sure how I'd function without it. 

2. Can I put coffee again? No? Uh, my iPhone. 

I'm not sure how I would keep on top of all of our family appointments, plus the kids' school schedules without it. I have never been a very organized person, so the fact that I can plug it all into the phone helps me immensely. Plus, I can take lots of pics of my kids to share, chat with friends, keep recipes, and blog from it like I'm doing now. Even though the Blogger app pretty much stinks. 

And truly, I see so many people replacing their phones all the time, and my iPhones have all lasted well over a few years. I don't even NEED to upgrade when the time comes, which is super nice. 

3. My parish. 

We've only been there a little over a year, but it was one of the greatest moves for our family. We are still trying to become a part of the community, but I guess that takes time. I love the parish and the preschool, and I feel very blessed to have found our home. 

Found this in google search. 

4. Mexican food. 

I don't get a chance to go out to dinner much anymore, thanks to a strict budget, but I love Mexican food. Living in the southwest has its perks in that regard, and I'm not sure how I will cope in Eastern Europe without good Mexican food. I have made restaurant style Mexican at home a few times, but I just can't get the hang of cooking it in a cost efficient manner. 

If anyone wants to take me out for dinner, I'd be good company, I promise. ;) 

5. Target diapers. 

Sorry, I couldn't go this whole post without something related to the kids! 

Target diapers are so cheap, but they are excellent quality. They're also pretty cute.

 We tried the whole cloth diaper thing for a while but the leaks were driving me absolutely bonkers, and I just couldn't handle it anymore. We still have our cloth stash, that we use in an emergency, and I'm going to start using them on my 3.5 yr old that can't stop wetting her bed, but I can't do them full time.

Anyway, if you haven't tried Target diapers, do it! You won't be sorry! I'm a Huggies girl, usually, too. 

This concludes my 7 posts in 7 days with Jen at Conversion Diary! Hope you enjoyed my ramblings! 


  1. Adore coffee! I go to bed looking forward to it!!!

    Huggies???? Really??? They are awful! Lol agree with you on target diapers! Love them!

    1. I love Huggies Naturals, but they're like 30¢ a piece and Target's are like 18¢, I think!!

  2. I am drinking coffee right now, despite my rigorous efforts to raise my hemoglobin count (coffee inhibits iron absorption). I just couldn't stay off the stuff.

    I love Costco diapers... But I am hoping to go back to cloth diapers soon when we move to our new house that boasts a washer, dryer, and concrete floors. Yessss...

    1. It's impossible to stay away from. I drank little to none my entire first 15 weeks or so, it wasn't settling well with my tummy, but now I must drink it or I can't function.

      I also like Costco diapers, but I think even they cost more than target's!

      If I could find cloth ones that don't make me want to punch something, that'd be cool, but they're so expensive and buying a bunch of diff kinds to try just wasn't working for me!! I did love not having to buy diapers tho.

    2. I have a bunch of fuzzibunz that I liked pretty well, but with coin-op laundry it was actually cheaper to buy diapers from Costco. Go figure.

    3. All of my Fuzzinunz ended up leaking like crazy.

    4. Sad story! A bunch of mine broke their snaps, but fuzzibunz ended up replacing them for free!

    5. My FuzziBunz leaked too! And we have a cistern for water supply so I couldn't rinse before actually washing them and then run a second rinse at the end. Too much water for my small stash with how quickly they were going through them. They're my "back up" diapers now.

    6. That happened to me too! Haha!

  3. Ooh, good job on the blogging, too ;-)

    1. Thanks! Can't believe I actually succeeded! Lol

  4. WELL DONE! And thank you for the coffee post. .. I just got a can of condensed milk. It seems a better option than coffeemate. . .so THANK YOU!

    1. I hope it's sweetened condensed milk, or you're in for an unpleasant surprise lol. You'll love it, it's delicious.
