LAST CREDIT CARD STATEMENT: A fabulous birthday dinner for my husband [chef Geoff Tracy] at Quality Meats in New York City and cashmere sweaters from J.Crew.

LIST OF REGRETS: My husband always tells me life is too short to have regrets.

SPOTIFY PLAYLIST: Taylor Swift, Adele, Chiddy Bang, Ne-Yo, and Swedish House Mafia, which pumps me up for running.

TWITTER FEED@bobschieffer; @charlierose; @gayleking; @60minutes; @katyperry. (Follow O’Donnell @norahodonnell.)

DVR: All three network morning shows . . . and Game of Thrones. Daenerys Targaryen is such a strong female character.

MIND: Why are there so few female leaders in government and business? There’s no longer an education gap, so is it, as some suggest, an ambition gap?

KITCHEN COUNTERA coffee machine, bananas, and a fabulous knife set.

MEDICINE CABINET SHELVES: Perfumes, eye cream, face cream . . .oh, and Toy Story Band-Aids.

IPHONE: The Uber app— it makes getting around the city so much easier. 

BAR TAB: My guilty pleasures are sauvignon blanc and pinot noir.

KINDLE: Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg. She raises a very provocative question about whether the women’s revolution has stalled.

INSTAGRAM: Anderson Cooper and Carolina Herrera.

VACATION ITINERARYThe Abaco Club, the Bahamas; and Sea Island, Georgia.

NIGHTSTAND: A picture of my three children, my Kindle, and a 32-ounce bottle of water. I think it’s important to hydrate at all hours. I chug half the bottle when I wake up at 4 a.m.!

TV IN THE MORNING: CBS This Morning, of course! On Sunday, it’s Face the Nation.

GROCERY LIST: Gallons upon gallons of milk for my kids, apples, cereal, Greek yogurt, chicken breasts, carrots, onions, celery, and bacon.

QUOTES-TO-LIVE-BY LIST“Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” —Goethe

COFFEE TABLE: Picasso Black and White, which I picked up at the Guggenheim.

WORKOUT PLAN: P90X and runs in Central Park. I’d love to do a half marathon soon.

FEET: My Asics Gels. I wear them with a pedometer on long runs.
