Finish This

I'm back again this week with a Finish This post.  I don't participate in this fun link-up every week, but it really is one of my very favorites. It is as easy or hard to write as you want it to be. It can be as in depth as you want it to be.  It is a great glimpse into who someone is. If you would like to link up, go check out Nicole's blog.

I feel like a badass when... I fall into bed at night.  No really. Lately, I have been feeling pretty gosh darn impressive for making it through the day.  Between James' preference to sleep in 45-75 minute block (and only sleep 12-13 hours a day -- less than my toddlers!!), the fact that I have toddlers and all the attitude that entails, trying to prepare a dissertation defense, basic household stuff (and lets be honest, not much household stuff is getting done lately), and just general life, I am feeling impressed my head is still above water.  Admittedly, my head is barely above water.  But I'm surviving. For now.

One thing that always cheers me up... a hug.  I love hugs.  A lot. From my husband. From my kids. Hugs rock. I'm also cheered up by a Snickers Blizzard from Dairy Queen. It's really a shame I'm dairy free right now. Ice cream, cheese, and milk are my comfort foods!

The quotes I live by...


  1. Oh Lexy, I'm sending you a big ol' virtual HUG right now. Love you woman, and all your awesomeness. I'm dairy-free as well, for allergy purposes, so the thought of Dairy Queen and blizzards makes my mouth water. Mmmmmmm cookie dough blizzards are so good. HA!!!!
