Finish This! 15th edition

Another Finish This!  If you do not already join in, you really should.  It's fun to answer and to see how others answer too.  I find that a lot of us have the same answers sometimes!  As always, I am linking up through:

Lisa @ Coastlined
Jen @ The Arizona Russums
Becky @ The Java Mama

Here we go!

I like wearing.......Jeans.  Oh yea....I love it.  I have to dress up for my full time job; which annoys me.  So anytime I can dress "down" I'm all about it.

My most memorable style was......... I have no idea.  Seriously!  Probably the things I wore in the 80's.  At the time I thought this was a normal style.  Till I look back at it now.  HA!

I dress to impress when........ I really don't dress to impress that I know of.  Although I suppose if I had a job interview I might think differently.

The best style tip I ever received....... Is to wear clothes that actually fit me.  I know that sounds strange! But after losing 75 pounds a few years ago I still gravitated toward clothes that are big on me.

Three wardrobe staples in my closet.......  Black dress pants, Black cami's and Black jacket or sweater. Notice they're all black.  LOL  But they go with everything!

Three words to describe my style..... Hmmm... comfortable, affordable, business-like (for my job)

And there you have it!  How would YOU answer these?

Ashley Bridget - bracelet love!

Aren't they pretty?  I saw these advertised on Facebook and fell in love with the white one (Escapes).  When I went to order it I also saw the the black "Capricorn" sign bracelet.  I had to get both and it came with a sweet discount off so I couldn't resist.

I have very small wrists.  In fact so small that most watches and bracelets are so big that they fall off when I put my arm down.  So when I find a bracelet that actually fits me, I get very excited!!  There are adjustable lengths.

The only thing about these is they are hard to put on by yourself.  I have a "bracelet buddy" and it's even hard to put on with that.  I had to have my husband help me clasp it.  LOL!  But other than that I love them!

It's already time for another Finish This!!  Check out the blogs of the lovely ladies I link up through every Wednesday!

Lisa @ Coastlined
Jen @ The Arizona Russums
Becky @ The Java Mama

Let's go!

I add spice to my life by.......  Going to concerts.  Yep.  At 44 years old I am still going to concerts.  I am a music freak and there is nothing better than going to see your favorite band play LIVE!  wheeeeeee!

Bacon is......  OH SO YUMMY!  I love bacon!  And if left alone with a crispy pound, I'm not afraid to admit I would eat it all.  :)  But I save it for an every once and awhile treat.  It does not love me as much as I love it.  

The perfect meal......  is Thanksgiving Dinner.  OH BABY!  My family has wonderful tradition-like foods that we love.  And we cook them every year!  I let myself enjoy that meal with no restriction.  HA!

My favorite food to grill is.......  A juicy burger.  mmmm nothing like it.  

I beat the heat by........ well my first choice would be to jump in the ocean, but since there isn't one in my back yard, I'd have to say by drinking plenty of fluids and visiting our local pool.  (or stay inside with the air conditioning LOL!)

It's your turn!  How would you answer these?

This is Shane and his wife, Melissa.  Shane and I went to high school together.  And like most people, we drifted apart for most of our adult lives.  But then thanks to Facebook, it reconnected all our classmates.

One year ago today (July 21), Shane died due to an accident in the home.  It was a tragic loss to many.  His wife was left with 2 boys.  I'd like to honor his memory by sharing some of my memories of Shane.  Quite a few of us had a great ride of reconnecting and sharing our lives with each other and our families.

This is what he did.  He LOVED to grill.  He would grill just about anything!  From pizza, to veggies, chicken, name it.  And it was very yummy.

This was his humor.  One of many funny things that he did.  Makes me laugh to see this picture again.

This is the crew that went to Outer Banks, NC in July, 2010.  We had a wonderful time eating, drinking beer, campfires, body surfing the waves and so much more.

This picture was taken during that same vacation.  Love this picture of their family.

He was fantastic at the guitar and singing.  He would play for us around campfires.  Loved it.

I miss my friend.  He was a great Father.  Rest in Peace, Shane.  Save us all a spot on the Other Side.

Finish This! 13th edition

I missed last weeks edition of Finish This - but I am back!  As always I link up through wonderful bloggers:

Lisa @ Coastlined
Jen @ The Arizona Russums
Becky @ The Java Mama

And here we go!

The only thing standing between me and ______ is.........  I think I would answer this one as:  the only thing standing between me and the BEACH  I mean, having to work is so annoying.  Don't you agree?  It totally messes up plans and really just gets in the way.  LOL  But we do what we have to do I guess.  :)

I don't have to be perfect to be.....  the Mommy to my three doggies.  That's a true statement right there.  If you have a dog (cat or any pet for that matter!) you can understand what I mean.  My three doggies love me unconditionally and they show it everyday.  I could leave the room and come back 5 minutes later and they are excited to see me as if I was gone all day long.  Where else can you get that kind of love except from animals?  Love them!

I would improve ______ by......  I would improve myself by.....Do you have an hour?!  I have a huge list of things I would love to improve about myself.  Guess my biggest struggle at the moment is keeping on my food plan and work out schedule.  Huge pet peeve about myself.  But I am human and I love food, what can I say.  :)

Now it's YOUR turn!  Tell me your answers in the comments below!!
