Have y'all seen this post floating around the internet? My friend linked to it (and did her own). And since I feel like I'm in a blogging slump as of late (okay, fine, I am almost always in a blogging slump!), I thought I would join in!
So here are the 8 things every girl should have:

A Go To Drink
I think I should make categories for this one:
Hot Drink -- White Chocolate Mocha, Skim Milk, No Whipped Cream, 3 shots of Peppermint
Cold Drink -- Route 44 Diet Dr. Pepper with Vanilla
And if there is no Sonic, Diet Dr. Pepper
Alcoholic -- Blue Curacao anything. Totally the way to my heart.

A Go To Karaoke Song
Let's just make this favorite song to sing in the car. Because I am not about to sing karaoke!
I would go with Taylor Swift. I love singing along with Taylor Swift.
Or RUF songs. Because that would go over great in a bar.
Nothing says "get drunk tonight" like "Jesus I My Cross Have Taken."
T H R E E
This one totally depends on my job and the weather, so I'll just go with now.
Jeans (Gap or the Loft) and a solid or striped cotton shirt.
Seriously, this may be part of the reason why I keep my closet color coordinated--it's so easy. All I own is solids or stripes, almost no patterns.
What can I say? I'm a creature of habit.

A Hairstylist They Love
This one is so easy.
Sidney, here's a little shout out for you.
Sidney is ah-mazing. I love to go to her for many reasons:
She knows me, so I don't have to make small talk with some random person.
She doesn't make too much fun of me when I read/do homework in her chair.
She can poof my hair like no body else.
She did my hair for Charity Ball, my wedding, Katy's wedding, etc.
I will do WHATever it takes to not have someone else touch my hair. She tells me what will look good and does it. She knows that I always want to do something awful with my hair, and she refuses to do it, which I need. However, she would not do that to you. It's only for me, because she knows I make bad hair decisions.
Also, she has the three cutest girls in the world.
Wedding hair. See, she's pretty good, huh?

An Exercise Routine
Um, should I even bother?
I really did use to exercise. I just haven't made it a priority in a while. But now exercise consists of walking the hills of Bellefonte with Jack in his stroller. Which is exercise, albeit not very organized.

Now, hobbies I have.
I LOVE to read. I would read all day (and obviously not exercise). I also love to cook and bake and have recently started sewing.
I also adore Christmas. Can that be a hobby? Because the amount of time I spend drinking hot cocoa, shopping for Christmas, looking at Christmas things, watching Christmas movies, and singing Christmas music seems like it would make it count!

A Best Friend
I have several of these.
My mom and my sisters are some of my best friends. I talk to my mom at least once a day and my sisters at least a couple of times a week. Not to mention the Braden family texts--which are amazing but, no, you can not be a part of them.
I also have a couple of best friends from all of our moves:
I get to be in one of my best friends weddings in less than two weeks.
We went to California to visit my best friend from Malawi.
I love reading the thoughts of my best friend from high school.
I am seriously missing my best Baton Rouge friend.
And of course, Bech and I have our various couple best friends.
One thing about my friends is that I love people who I can not talk to for three months, see or talk to, and it's like we have seen each other every day. I just love having people that I feel that comfortable with.

A Healthy Sense of Self
I hope I have this. I think I do. I struggle with contentment and envy (thank you, Pinterest and Instagram), but I think I know who I am and am, for the most part, pretty happy with that.
I'm not sure the original post writer meant this to be individually filled out, but I enjoyed this!
