5 things I can't live without

I know, I know...the most important things in life aren't things. That said, there are some things in my world that I'm fairly certain I would die without.
Have you ever had a super-hard day? Duh. Of course you have. At the end of a hard day, who doesn't want to unwind with a special treat? Well here's mine. Izze Clementine soda. Yum. This stuff is like liquid sunshine. And hey-two servings of fruit. Can't beat that.
The Baby Jogger City Mini Double stroller. Not a jogging stroller, but pretty much the most incredible stroller in the universe. It folds almost completely flat, fits in the trunk of our civic, turns on a dime, and fits through every doorway I've ever tried to take it through. Have you ever had a crush on an object? If I did, it'd be my stroller.
These disposable/reusable sippy cups are a gift from heaven. Ok, maybe not that impressive, but I love knowing that I'm not going to feel like crap if I forget a sippy cup somewhere. And on top of it all, they dont have valves, so it's only two pieces in the dishwasher, and no weird places for things to get stuck. I love them.

I would take a picture of mine, but I'm feeling pretty lazy. This is the Erin Condren Life Planner. It sits open on my dining room table, and if something isn't written in it, it doesn't happen. It keeps all of my crazy appointments straight, and I even write down our shows so I don't forget. Ha! It has tabs for every month, a page with a full-month calendar, and each week is broken down into days, and the days are broken up in morning/day/nigh boxes. No lines, so I don't feel weird drawing pictures on the pages. There's also a handy pocket in the back for receipts and things, and a pouch that holds address labels and stamps (at least that's what's in mine). If you've been looking for a planner that keeps you organized and haven't been able to find the right one, this is your baby. Worth every penny.
Last but certainly not least, the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 lens. Swoon. It gives almost perfect bokeh, and has taken all of my best photos. I even have a camera nicer than my Nikon, but I use the Nikon most often so that I can use this pretty little thing. Fast and sharp as a tack. If I could marry a camera lens, it'd be this one.

What items can't you live without?

I've been thinking about this. I'm going to come up with my own list, but the first thing that came to mind is chocolate. I'm sure you're not surprised by that! :)
