Finish This Link Up: Week 24

Welcome to Week 24 of Finish This! This link-up is hosted by NICOLE (Three31) LISA (COASTLINED), JEN (The Arizona Russums), BECKY (The Java Mama) and I and we’re so glad you’re here. If you’ve joined us before, thanks for returning! Be sure to add your post to the link-up. If you don’t have a blog, don’t worry. Simply answer the prompts in a comment. Next week’s prompts are at the bottom of this post.


1. I could spend all day …
Sleeping.  Like, for real….and watching HGTV or Reality trash TV shows while laying in bed eating a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.  That’s borderline SLOTH!  Or taking photos….I love pictures 🙂

“Say Cheese” shirt is from Click & Blossom:


2. My primary and most essential goal in life …
Is to be the best wife and mom I can be.  Sometimes I think that would be so much easier if I could devote my entire self to that….but we are slowly getting to the point where I may be able to do that someday.  Or at least work part-time.  We’ll see….who knows if that will ever happen.  I just don’t want to wake up one day and have missed all the moments.  I struggle daily with finding balance, like I know so many of you do.  But being a Godly role model and woman in Christ is an essential goal of mine.

3. You might be surprised to learn …
Hmmm….I don’t know what I HAVEN’T shared yet???  But let’s see…. that I don’t drink coffee ALL day long.  I don’t go to Starbucks EVERY day!  We live on a budget.  Set goals.  Achieving them is a wonderful feeling.  I’m very OCD and a perfectionist.  Yet, I have a low self-esteem and take antidepressants :-/  It’s crazy because almost everyone I know these days is medicated in some way.  I can’t stand cabinet doors open and toilet seats up.  I like time to myself…I NEED that to be a better me.  I don’t have to have someone around me constantly….that irritates me.

4. My favorite place in the world is …
In my husband’s arms.  But he gets hot easily so we don’t cuddle much 😛  Boo!

5. I wish I had known sooner …
How to appreciate my parents.  Growing up you don’t realize how much your parents do and all the sacrifices they make.  Now that I’m older I realize this and love my parents, now they are not JUST parents…but friends.  I have a feeling I’m going to hate the teenage years!



Prompts for WEEK 25 *BIG SURPRISE GIVEAWAY WEEK* (June 25) are:
I have a quarter to use a pay phone, I call ….
I found $25 in my pocket, I buy …
I have 25 minutes to watch anything on TV, I turn on …
A meal I can prepare, from start to finish. in 25 minutes or less is …
At the age of 25, I wish I had known …
If I drove 25 miles (direction) from my house, I’d be in …

    Sleeping all day…that used to be my favorite thing! Something about the sleep deprivation of the past year, and getting used to waking twice a night with my son has made it nearly impossible for me to nap. I miss my naps 🙁
    And ditto on the teenage years!

    I’d love to sleep and watch silly TV all day long 🙂 I also enjoy alone time and a great iced coffee. I’m from Indiana but currently living in Arkansas. I can completely relate to trying to find the perfect balance in life – it’s hard!!

    I am pretty sure we all answered the first prompt pretty alike- sleeping! I know that’s what I said.. Either sleeping, or watching all my shows that are inhabiting my DVR.. and if you love HGTV, you should talk to fellow blogger Ruthie Hart, who is part of the link up- she and her husband filmed an episode of House Hunters a few years ago.. I think that is pretty neat, and what a small world right?
