Blanks + Friday = fill them in.

Fill In The Blanks
(because its Friday and I said so)

1. A very nostalgic place that reminds me of being a kid is

Tennessee. I have lots of fun memories of being at my Nanny Marshall's house. I could go on and on but now is not a good time to be gushing out memories.


2. If someone really wants to show me how much they love me

they should do something thoughtful for me. Something that i know they put a little effort into. It doesn't have to be fancy or elaborate. For instance...once for my birthday Ben got me an art easel and some canvasses, paint and really nice brushes. TOTAL surprise. i never said i wanted this, but he knew i loved art and it would be special to me. thoughtful.

3. Lately I've been wondering a lot about

what our life will look like in one year.

4. When it comes to saving money

I am getting better. I always assume we don't have a lot of extra to save, which is not true. God bless my husband for the budget. I'm with Lauren, I don't live out of my means. I want to save up for important things...scratch that...experiences. vacations, parties, dinners, events. Things that make memories, not possessions.

5. I'd prefer

tent camping


fancy camping

any day!

i hate when i see people camping with tv and refrigerators. But to each their own.

6. I wish I knew how to make

gardens grow. When i have space for one, I want to grow all my own veggies and have a hen to make me some eggs. That way if the economy falls apart and the grocery stores are empty, I will know how to take care of my woman style.

7. I'm just waiting for
the next season of our lives. ;) I have a certain itch that I would like to scratch before too long.

Thanks Lauren, fun fun. Go to her blog and link up your answers if you please!


  1. Hey I'm new to this blogging thing, I loved reading your blog. I hope you will follow me and I will follow you!

    Thanks, Nicole Mariana

  2. I so totally share your opinion on camping! I love camping the good old way and been craving to go out into the nature for quite a while just have to wait for my friends to be back from their vacation cause I wouldn't dare going alone :(

    Bloghopping from FITBF, have a nice weekend <3

  3. please become a pioneer woman! i would love it and i'd come play with your hen and help you harvest, because lord knows i can't grow anything myself :).

  4. haha you'd be a great pioneer woman!! I get eggs from my parent's chickens and they're sooo good! I agree with your camping opinion. Although when we go with my fam and my parent's bring their camper it is nice being able to use their toilet sometimes if I don't want to walk to an outhouse:)

  5. I just got your blog name from your sweet momma-in-law...whom I adore. You are so blessed to have her, which I am sure you are fully aware of. :) She was telling me about you yesterday on our lunch adventure. Can't wait to take a peek at your blog this weekend!

    Happy Happy Friday!
