Finish this

Linking up with these ladies (Nicole {Three 31Lisa {The Coastal Chicster}and Becky {The Java Mama} Jen {The Arizona Russums}) for a new weekly series called Finish This. 

1. I first felt like a grown up...nope, I still don't feel like one. Sometimes I laugh and think to myself, have I really been married 3 years and have a baby? I am barely 5 feet tall and can look pretty young without makeup on so I giggle when I see myself in the mirror holding Ford looking like a teenager.



2. I am one of a kind because...oooh tough. I'd like to say because that's who God made me but I'm one of a kind because I have only one really deep dimple, I broke my back 11 years ago, and 1 bunion on my left foot (ugh!). 

3. Spanx...will never be found in my closet. Let it all hang out ladies! Sure they'd be nice to stuff my postpartum belly into but comfort over style for this new mama.

4. My favorite family tradition...is the word Haboo. Read about what it means to my family here.

5. The last thing I do before bed is...thank God for a husband who scratches my head while I fall asleep. 

6. Happiness is...family dinners without TV or distractions, snoozing on the couch on Sunday afternoons, and laughing so hard your abs get a solid workout. It's recognizing that new mercies come every morning and grace is boundless. 


Can you finish these sentences?

Haha. I love this! So fun. I agree with the adult thing. though I look way older than you:) my height has always made people tell me I look older :( however the whole I cannot believe I have a baby thing still hits me 19 months later!

Really like this post! I feel you on the "not being a grown up" part. I was completing tax stuff the other day sitting at the kitchen table and was like "no. this is something I'm supposed to be watching my dad do, not me actually doing it for my own family!".

Kristin said...

Awww, I love this. And Spanx are my best friend! HAHAHA!

Liz said...

Welllll...I'm letting it all hang out over here ;) Unless I shove it into my maternity leggings because gosh those things are still the comfiest item of clothing I own!!

Lisa @ MMT said...

What a fun linkup! I almost want to start blogging again so I can join ;) Love that photo of you and Ford! He is your mini-me and oh so adorable!!

1. I first felt like a grown up when I got my first business card after completing grad school. People KNOW me! Haha.
2. I am one of a kind because I am totally recessive...left handed, red hair, green eyes, freckles :-)
3. Spanx under a bridesmaid dress are a huge mistake. A few drinks, and trying to wriggle free...no thank you!
4. My favorite family tradition is sending homemade Valentine's day cards. It's always been special to us.
5. The last thing I do before bed is arrange a pillow fortress these days to get comfortable being preggie!
6. Happiness is hiking through Washington with Cole and our dogs, fresh picked flowers, a meaningful sermon, frothy lattes, and unwinding at the end of the day.

Angie's Angle said...

you are so cute!! And the whole not feeling like an adult thing, I tend to agree while I have had my moments, quite often I still feel like I am a teenager lol

Briana Runde said...

I didn't even notice you only had one dimple - ha! Cute!

Nicole M. Hutchison said...

You are so cute!!!! Thanks for linking up ..... and CHEERS for lazy days on the couch. =)

Megan said...

Love this! I too am 5ft nothing and get asked multiple times if I want a kids menu while out with my boyfriend. And you are so lucky that your husband scratches your head while you sleep, that's the only way to fall asleep!

Jessica Lynn said...

Fun! I'm definitely doing this next week.

Ugh = spanx. I wore some on Christmas Eve and immediately regretted it. Not fun.

Annie said...

I'm with you on feeling like a grown-up! I don't think I've ever properly felt like a grown-up. It's the (lack of) height and the good aging genes, I know! We both got 'em :]
