Finish This

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}, and Becky {The Java Mama}.


1. I don't get enough... time to blog. I just love blogging. It's therapeutic for me to write for fun, but it's so hard to squeeze it in with an infant to take care of and a PhD keeping me busy.

2. My favorite indulgence... is a pedicure once a month. Except it's only partially indulgent... the weather here {and corresponding sandal wearing 8 months out of the year} is so hard on my feet, so it's partially a necessity too.

3. I made a major change in my life when... I switched concentrations in my PhD program. I used to study Shakespeare and now I study mommy bloggers... what?!

4. You should read... Where'd You Go, Bernadette? It's my favorite novel I've read in a long time, and it's especially hilarious if you're a Seattleite like me and can more deeply understand the quirky Pacific Northwest characters and setting.

5. Lavender is my secret ingredient in... getting a teething baby to sleep through the night. When Zianne got her first two teeth, she woke up in pain 1-3 times in the middle of the night for a whole week. Then I heard that if you rub a little lavender essential oil onto the soles of a baby's feet, mixed with a carrier like coconut oil, it helps them sleep. It worked like a charm with Zianne, and we had NO night wakings at all when she got four of her top teeth all at once a few weeks ago.

Okay, miss tanned already and it's only April 2, stop making the rest of look (mainly me) look so ghostly white!!!!!!! Miss Z, you need to slow down on the growing up too. I can't believe you have six -- SIX -- teeth already. But I'm glad to hear about the lavender. I really need to jump on the essential oil bandwagon and do my homework to learn more. I hear such great things, not to mention uses, all the time.

Oh this is such a fun idea for a post! I totally agree about not having enough time to blog. It's something I wish I could dedicate hours to each day but that is just not really an option with working full time!

I just finished "Where'd You Go Bernadette" and I really like it! I thought the perspective was really cool - I love books that are a just a little different. I want to hear more about that PhD thing!

Shakespeare to Mommy bloggers! There is something to be said about our society there, but I'm not sure what it is!

Jeannie said...

I bet your thesis will be interesting. Do you compare mommies to Shakespear? LOL
