Finish This


On Saturday morning, I usually wake up at my normal time and then blissfully go back to sleep. Unless there are early morning plans. If there are no plans, I roll out of bed around 9ish, start coffee, turn my brain on and think about my day. Sometimes Le Husband and I get sucked into a morning TV show, but usually we head to our local farmer's market for our produce pull for the week. I enjoy the quiet, coffee moments before the weekend truly starts.

I feel beautiful when I'm all dolled up, in one of my favorite outfits. Yes, I know that beauty is only skin deep, but 1] I think it's so much fun being a girl and having makeup/hairstyles to try out 2] looking pretty and beautiful is awesome. I enjoy the time spent in the bathroom trying to get that perfect smoky eye, or perfect blend of a rosy cheek. I know Le Husband enjoys me more in Under Armour and a pony tail, post workout, but I feel my best all beautified :)!
[going glam is so fun]

I wake up every morning and hope for just FIVE more minutes of sleep. Or ten or maybe another hour. I've never been the girl that could just POP out of bed the minute after waking up. I like more sleep or cuddles before facing the day.

A happy home is one filled with love, joy and fun. One that encourages residence to be themselves, laugh, try new things and one that spreads happiness. A happy home is one filled with family, jokes, memories and joy. One that might not always be picked up, but one where the people are comfortable and content. I grew up in a happy home of five. Things weren't always perfect but here were more laughter and smiles than tears and sadness. I only home my future families' home can be just as happy.

When I have down time, I like to read and catch up on my tv shows.When life gets busy, those few minutes on the couch with my Kindle or our TV shows while eating dinner are my favorite moments. I love getting lost in a book, it's one of my favorite past times.

Linking up with these lovely ladies (Nicole {Three 31Lisa {The Coastal Chicster}and Becky {The Java Mama} Jen {The Arizona Russums}) for my first Finish This.


  1. My favorite part of the start to the weekend is sipping coffee on the couch and just sitting an enjoying it, too.
    Love love love to read!

  2. Great post idea! I love what you said about a happy home. When I was growing up my mom used to keep it spotless. She now says she wishes she would have played with us more than she worried about vacuum lines.

  3. I love Saturday mornings when I roll over see two puppy snouts and just cuddle for a second.

  4. Love your responses, thanks for joining us this week! What you said about a happy home is EXACTLY right. I figure I'm extending extra hospitality to the dust bunny family by allowing them to stay a while in the corner of our living room. HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

  5. Cute post idea! I totally am the same way in the mornings, always wishing for a few extra moments of sleep!

  6. I so wish I could rock red lipstick... I definitely hear you, I so often turn around for "just 5 more minutes", hoping that they don't accidentially turn into 30 minutes :-)

  7. I hit the snooze over and over then get so mad at myself afterwards! I love playing with makeup too...getting dolled up is so much fun!

  8. i love the sound of your happy home, because it sounds like what mine was growing up :)

  9. This sounds like me!!! :) Obviously. Because we're both awesome!!

  10. Great post! (We could def hang out bc I'm just about the same way on all of this! haha) xoxo


I LOVE LOVE LOVE your comments! Make my p!nk day and leave me some love!
