Finish This! Week #25

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}, Jen {The Arizona Russums} and Becky {The Java Mama}.

I have a quarter to use a pay phone, I call … Adam. Seriously I never talk on the phone so I'd likely give him a call, check in, see how things are going..

I found $25 in my pocket, I buy … Well, I'd first start by couponing for whatever I actually do need to buy, so that I could stretch that $25 a little farther... mostly likely, I'd try to get ahead on groceries, diapers, formula, etc.   If all of that was done and I was getting to "spoil" myself, I would probably either go out to dinner or get a manicure (I think I get one like once a year...)

I have 25 minutes to watch anything on TV, I turn on … either baseball and if that's not on, I'd probably catch up on some sort of garbage TV.. I like RHOC, Catfish (yes, I'm old but I can't get enough of that show!), Rizzoli and Isles (because I love crime shows), but my FAVORITE show is Nashville, I've talked about this before... but since it's summer and on hiatus I'd probably default to one of the above. 

A meal I can prepare, from start to finish. in 25 minutes or less is … sloppy joes.  My neighbor gave me the BEST recipe for homemade sloppy joes (or bbqs as they are called by some folks).  They are absolutely incredible!! 

At the age of 25, I wish I had known … How all of my choices mold and shape who I've become and if I can't be proud of the choice, or if I didn't want my dad or grandma to see it, then I shouldn't do it.  I look back on some of the poor decisions I made, and yes I've grown and learned from them, but sometimes I wish I had a do over. 

If I drove 25 miles (direction) from my house, I’d be in the St Croix River.  I live in Wisconsin near the border of Minnesota, so if I drove West 25 miles, I'd literally be in the dividing river between the 2 states.  If I drove, North, South, or East,  I'd be in a corn field.  I think there's actually a college about 25 miles East of me, so I guess there's that, but since I do most of my activities in Minnesota, that's where my mind went... (My work is 1 exit away from Mall of America... hard to do anything in Wisconsin when all your needs are in the metro!).

Prompts for WEEK 26 (July 2) are:
It’s never too late …
I compare myself to others …
My personality is …
I can …
I embrace change …


  1. I want to try to get into Nashville. It always looks so good on the commercials. I might need to actually start watching it!

  2. A woman after my own RHOC-loving heart. I'm a Real Housewives junkie. It's totally crap but totally addicting too. HA! Thanks for joining the link up (this week and every week) and good luck with the giveaway too. Share with your bloggy pals. let's grow this thing!!!!!


  3. Sloppy joes are great! I don't make them that much because my youngest doesn't like them. I know that's absolute crazy.

    Have a great week!

  4. Hi Kristen! ahhh RH! Love all of them. My guilty pleasure! And I love sloppy joes too. YUMMMM!

  5. I've heard only great things about Nashville. I loved Connie Britton in Friday Night Lights so I think this should definitely be on my list of things to watch this summer!

  6. My daughter just discovered Sloppy Joes!! Thank goodness because I love them! Also Love RHOC.. my fav right now! Not sure what's up w the brunette she is crazy! Love the new cast member.. the one whose husband sent her an email re their marriage.

  7. I must watch Nashville too! I loved FNL and Connie Britton is one of the main reason, she's such a great actress! I'm going to add it to my list of shows I need to watch!
