Finish This! -- Week #13

Finish This!

This game is called "Finish This," and all you have to do is finish the following prompts and link up your post below! You can also visit the other hosts of this party on their fun blogs: Nicole {Three 31} Lisa {Coastlined}, and Becky {The Java Mama}.


1. I don't get enough... TIME in the day.  I am a full-time working mom with a long commute each day into the city.  I try to make it to the gym after work and home in time for cuddles and time with my boys.  I always wish for more hours in the day :)

2. My favorite indulgence... by far, hands down, Mountain Dew.  Since having George I have had to cut WAY back but this is the one thing I simply love love love to savor when I get one! (And I can never seem to get enough Peanut M&Ms either!)

3. I made a major change in my life when... I became a mom.  Prior to George I had an awesome job that I got to travel all over the country for extended periods of time.  I loved what I did because it involved helping people with computer issues, teaching classes, and data analytics (that's the nerdy side of me!).  But, becoming a mom has slowed me down and now I have a great job and get to come home to my wonderful family each night.

4. You should read... Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult.  Hands down one of the best reads ever!  She does an excellent job creating empathy for a character who committed a horrific crime.  As a mother, this book speaks to me and what I would do if my child were involved.  The ending also is a complete shock. I loved this book!!

5.  Parmesan is my secret ingredient in... My lasagna... I add a thick layer of this on top of the sauce in each level of the dish.  It melds the sauce with the cheese and creates an incredible flavor. YUM! 


  1. Becoming a mom, for me too, was a major change but an AWESOME one!!!!! I can't imagine our lives without this handsome, chubby, and funny three month old we have. P.S. your post on returning to the gym speaks to me. I renewed my gym membership yesterday, April 1, after a five-month hiatus to deliver Kamden and have surgery to remove my gallbladder. It feels amazing to be back, even if today is just the second day! I walked on the treadmill yesterday and did an hour water aerobics class today. I'm also doing the #1800minutechallenge during the months of April and May. After day two, I've got 1705 minutes to go!!!!!!!

    1. Way to go on your 1800 minute challenge!!! I hope you are sticking with it :) You will feel awesome once you meet your goal!

  2. Children do make a major difference in your life. As do grandchildren! They're even better, if you could imagine!
