25 [finish this]

For those of you who pray, please say one for me and my OB appointment today. As I've posted before, I am having cholestasis symptoms again this pregnancy and today is the day some decisions around that will be made.

But, in keeping with the "ignore all the bad things" tone my blog has taken lately, I'm linking up for this weeks Finish This post rather than delve any further into those emotions. Also -- get excited because today will be a two post day! I never posted my Citrus Lane Review yesterday so it will go up at some point today.


I have a quarter to use a pay phone, I call …. no one. Because having a quarter is the easy part. I honestly don't remember the last time I saw a pay phone! They took them out of the local movie theater. I don't recall seeing any at gas stations. Really, where would I find one?!?


I found $25 in my pocket, I buy … a Sonic Rt 44 something and keep the change for lots of days at Sonic. I have an addiction to Sonic. I don't always get the same drink. It isn't the tea or their soda fountains. I love the ice! In fact, last week I went to Sonic and ordered a Rt 44 ice water!

And because even I admit making a special stop to buy an ice water is weird, I documented it. #overgram

I have 25 minutes to watch anything on TV, I turn on … HGTV. Or Bravo. Or I catch up on my DVR! It's a bit old and now my summer shows are out, but you can get a glimpse into my TV addiction here.

A meal I can prepare, from start to finish, in 25 minutes or less is … chicken and rice, quesadillas, homemade sloppy joes, etc. Most if my go to recipes can be finished that fast. It's obvious that I'm no food blogger!

At the age of 25, I wish I had known … that someday we WOULD get pregnant. And not only would we get pregnant, we'd have three boys in 18 months! Our journey to get where we are was long, painful, and heart-wrenching. Knowing then it would eventually have a happy ending would have saved me a lot of tears. You can see our infertility timeline here.

If I drove 25 miles North from my house, I’d be in ... my hometown, McKinney!


Join in the fun and "Finish This," by finishing the above prompts and linking up your post with the hosts of this party: Nicole {Three 31} Lisa {Coastlined}, and Becky {The Java Mama}.

    1. Thanks. I know I have an awesome OB :) so that makes it a bit easier!

  2. Prayers for you, friend, and that sweet, precious baby too. Keep us posted! I love your responses this week. Chicken and rice is one of our go-to quick-fix meals too. I haven't been to Sonic in a year, since eliminating caffeine and sugar from my diet. My regulars (Route 44 sweet tea or Route 44 extra cherry Coke) are out of the question but you are absolutely correct: they have the BEST Ice!!!!! I know folks who drive 20-30 minutes to the nearest Sonic just to buy bags of it. CRAZINESS.

    Thanks for participating in this link up, this week and every week, and good luck with the special giveaway for Week 25. Invite your bloggy pals, let's grow this thing!


    1. So wait --- no caffeine? No sugar? AND No dairy? I can't even imagine!! Your will power is like whoa!!

  3. Sonic ice is the bomb!

    Have a great week!

  4. What the what..... at first I was going to comment on your Sonic addiction because I have one as well... Do not order water tho.... But I am in love w the ice and cups and the teas and the flavorings!!!!

    MY HOMETOWN IS MCKINNEY!!!!!! What the what?!?!!?!? Now we live outside of SA have my oldest kids were raised and schooled in Mckinney....

    1. I don't NORMALLY get water, but last week I REALLY wanted sonic ice after my OB appointment but I was in the midst of a horrible stomach bug. So, water!

      And seriously what a small world!!! I grew up in McK and graduated from MHS (when it was the only high school) and my family is still there. I still love it there and wish it was close enough to my husbands job for us to live there.

  5. Praying for you!

    Also, for some reason that payphone meme made that Maroon 5 song "Payphone" pop into my head and now I can't get rid of it.....thanks... =)

    1. I've been thinking of that song ever since I saw the question!
