Five on Friday

This is my first time linking up with these lovely ladies for the weekly 5 on Friday. But, if you've learned anything about me yet, you've learned that I love lists!
Today I'm going to share with you my 5 summer must-haves.

1. I have had my Tervis tumbler attached to me at all times for the last few weeks. I do not drink nearly enough water so I made a note to myself at the bottom of the cub to drink 4 of them a day. That's 64 oz of water a day folks. That's also 64 trips from my desk down the hall to the bathroom a day. So... I can safely say I will be fully hydrated this summer. These cups aren't cheap but I like that it has a lid that closes and it's double walled so my cold water stays cold. There are few things I hate more than room temperature water. I don't have a photo of my actual tumbler but it's a pretty one from our local country club.

2. I bought a pack of these lace creaseless hair ties at Icing a few months back. Who shops at Icing anymore? I do apparently. Anyway, I made a promise to my hair that I wouldn't be using a blow dryer this summer. I've been showering at night and then sleeping with my hair up in one of these and styling pretty in the morning. Where have these little lovelies been all my life?

3. I love a good tote. My closet is packed full of these things. I recently accidentally/on purpose bought enough swim suits at my favorite summer clothing supplier to get me this pretty little bag fo' free. We take a lot of weekend trips and I've been stuffing all my bathroom essentials in this bag and will be using it for many trips to the pool, lake, etc.

4. I recently discovered the Perrier skinny can. They are a 0 calorie, 0 everything else, slightly flavored treat. Our fridge has been fully stocked with their range of flavors. My favorite is the grapefruit. Apparently it's everyone else's favorite too because I have had one hell of a time finding them.

5. Nothing says summer to me like a good book. My kindle is not a new addition to my reading repertoire but it's definitely an essential. I'm currently reading Gone Girl and absolutely loving it. I love that I can dim the back light and read at night after Mr. M is snoring and that it is bright enough to still be able to read in the direct sun. It took me a while to convert to kindle reading (I do miss the smell of a real book) but being able to have all of my favorite books, magazines, and blogs  in one tiny little reader that I can stuff in my purse is worth it.

We are headed up to Napa for the weekend for a belated birthday celebration for Nick. You better believe every single one of the above will be tagging along!
