A few of my favorite things...

 I am surrounded by boys.  That's fine most of the time.  But sometimes, it'd be nice to have someone to pass my girl knowledge on to.  I was thinking today about things every woman NEEDS.  Basics for being a woman.  We don't need men.  We don't need fancy or crazy things.  But there are needs we have that seperate us from being "girls".

So, in MY opinion, these are the very basics.  The survival guide of being a youngish 20-50 something woman.  Not the would-be-nice-to-haves.  These are the MUSTS.  Sooooo get on it.  :) 
  1. An Excellent Mascara.  Because regardless of the occasion, be it dinner by candle light or a mid-day ball game, your eyes are naked without the fluffy lash splay we all love.  If you ever want to look "sick", skip mascara.  Seriously, having a mascara that is undeniably fabulous is as necessary as food and water.
  2. Spanx.  I don't care how thin you are or aren't.  Spanx are the touch of God in relation to undergarments.  If the need comes to wear a cocktail dress or anything silk, spanx are you're best friend.  It's like ironing your body.  They make everything smoother.  You wouldn't wear wrinkly clothes to a special occasion, would you?  I didn't think so.
  3. Peppermint Foot Lotion.  I can't even explain how awesomely refreshing a tingly peppermint lotion is on your feet.  If feet could do crack, it'd be peppermint flavored.  ::Happy Sigh::
  4. This one is a 2 parter.... 2 Bras.  THE bra.  You know the one.  The one you wear to the bar, to your third date, anywhere but church and probably work.  The one that makes your girls stand up and stand out.  The one that's soaking wet at the end of the night thanks to the male's inability not to drool at the sight of a boobie swell.  And the other bra.  The comfy bra.  The bra that molds to your body, but doesn't cut into your back/shoulders/side.  The jammie-esque bra.  The one you only wear in front of your partner after 6 months.  The one that makes you want to cry when it dies a horrific death in the washing machine because 4 years and 2 babies later, it just couldn't hold on anymore.  :(
  5. An A-line dress or skirt.  I love the way these look... on EVERYONE.  They look as good on the "healthy" sized girls as they do on those bitches that don't eat.  I may be deranged, but I love the throwback to the 1950's.  It just a cute, classy and classic look.

When I find a comfy bra I always by at least 2. I have lost too many to tragic accidents from washing machine disasters to having two boys that think they make a perfect sling shot for mud pies :)
