Finish This!! -- Week #14

April 9, 2014
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}.  
 ... We love Twins baseball in this house.. and went to the Twins home opener.. We left George at home with Grandma but had him dressed up for the day anyway!!

On a Saturday morning, I usually... Wake up early :) We are early birds at our house - even before we had sweet baby George. Adam usually makes us a nice hot breakfast and we watch the morning news before starting our day..
I feel beautiful when... I have just finished a hard workout or hard run. While I love having my hair done and makeup on, I truly feel strong and capable when I'm done working out. While my physical beauty is 100% compromised during exercise (think red face, messy hair, sweat.. uugh) but I know I'm doing something good for myself by working out. Working out = Beautiful.
I wake up every morning... thinking about what I can eat. Seriously I have been this way my entire life. I envy people who cannot eat until later in the morning (although eating right away is much healthier!). I'm trying so so hard to eat healthier in the mornings but some days I simply want those peanut M&Ms... (Peanut M&Ms are my vice.. especially the holidays ones.. they are a must!) ..and I wonder why I can't lose the baby weight!!
A happy home... is a loud home :) It means it's filled with joy and laughter and playing and all sorts of conversation. I love hearing George talk to himself and make baby conversation.. and I really enjoy having people over to our home. There is nothing like visiting with old friends and telling stories while eating good food.. (Common theme? = food!)
When I have down time, I... workout or take George for a walk. I really struggle with finding time to workout a minimum of 3 times a week, so when I can squeeze one in I definitely do!!

Prompts for next week:

My favorite vacation spot is...
If I won a million dollars I would…
If I found a genie in a bottle, my three wishes would be...
My favorite clothing item is...



  1. Sounds like a perfect home to me, one with lots of love, laughter, and food!!!!!! Mr George is adorable, how old is he? I have a three, almost four, month old. What a joy. I'm so glad to be a boy mom!!!!!

    1. Georgie is 11 weeks old now :) The time is going by so fast!!! Yes, I love being a boy's momma too... How fun!!

  2. George is SO cute! I admire you for working out....if I could just get ONE workout in I'd be golden. I try to eat decently, but I have a fierce sweet tooth. Stinking Easter candy isle is KILLING ME!!!! Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

    1. Oh my dear :) that sweet tooth is one thing we have in common!! Those Reese's holiday eggs, trees, hearts, pumpkins, (yep, know them well) are one heck of a weakness for me!!
