Finish This

My favorite makeup item is…mascara. I go totally makeup free at least 2 days a week but I sure do love mascara. As a new mom I’ve learned how to do full makeup in less than 2 minutes.

The best book I ever read was…Redeeming Love because it reminds us that Jesus is the only husband we truly need. His love will always be enough.

My favorite TV show is…Scandal. I binge watched it when Ford was first born and now have my sister addicted. Other shows I love are Call the Midwife, Parenthood, Kelly & Michael, Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen. 

The most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done is…spontaneity isn’t one of my strong suits (especially now that I am a parent) but 2 years ago Jon planned a whole trip for us and didn’t tell me where until the day we left. I normally have a huge part of planning and organizing not only trips but basically everything in our lives so it was fun to let him take the reins and surprise me!


I prefer dogs over cats because…the only cats I’ve ever encountered have been so evil to me. I feel like they are always plotting against me and planning their next attack. I am SO thankful Jon is allergic to cats or else he would want to own 10.

I met my husband…at work. I was an intern and he was a sales guy for a software company. What a wild ride it was.

Vintage Jon & Ruthie


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

I binged on Scandal a few weeks ago and loved it but I started to get bored of it during S-2.. I need to watch S-3 but I'm scared it may not be as good as S-1... Oh the things I worry about ;-)

That's how I feel about cats as well.

Stopping by for the link-up.

3. That's so crazy you all used to work in the same office, I bet y'all miss it at NetQOS... I miss the Christmas parties haha

Hi Ruthie! Please don't judge kitties by the few that you seem to have met…they are awesome and there is even a Greeter Kitty at the little country church I have been visiting here in OR. In looking at the pose on your pic w your Jon, are you perhaps a DG Sister?

I've always wanted to do a spontaneous trip like that but I'd never be able to pull it off!

Cats creep me out too.

The only nice cat that I ever met was a stray cat in my neighborhood. It used to follow me to my car and our along my legs. I love the vintage Jon and Ruthie photos, those are fun to look at!
