Finish This

July 09, 2014

This is a weekly link-up courtesy of co-hosts Jen, {The AZ Russums}, Nicole {Three 31}, Lisa {Coastlined}, and Becky {The Java Mama}.

For the Fourth of July, I celebrated by... hosting my sister who was in town. She was extremely helpful and so hands-on which made time for me to relax this last weekend. On Sunday night, we went to a free concert in the park to listen to music and watch fireworks. Naturally, my extroverted child talked to every stranger in sight. But he missed his first fireworks show since it was way past his bedtime and he fell asleep in the stroller.

My go-to cosmetic product is... my tinted moisturizer. I started using Pond's Luminous Finish BB+ after receiving a free sample. It's super light with sunscreen included, and it leaves my skin looking smooth and clear. If I have to look alive and awake in thirty seconds, I go with this.

I am inspired by... watching Liam learn and communicate and soak in everything around him like a sponge.

The best relationship advice I received was... to stay true to yourself and not become so dependent on a relationship that you lose yourself in the process.

When no one is around, I tend to... enjoy the heck out of it. Because unlike my husband and son, I am an introvert and thrive off of alone time. 

Prompts for next week:
I don't have to be perfect to be...
I would improve ____ by...
The only thing standing between me and ____ is ____.

Pin It!


  1. Oh how I relate with the alone time :) I enjoy being alone far more than the average person I think. Have a great week!

  2. Not that I necessarily needed one, but it was nice to have an excuse to revert back to childhood and watch Sesame Street and play in jungle gyms and eat goldfish all day. Plus, it was a great four-day workout. Thanks for being a great host, as always.
