Happy Friday! This Friday definitely feels like Friday, unlike the one over break, haha! Well I had a weird school week. Tuesday we had a delayed opening due to the freezing temps and Wednesday was a half-day. So not complaining, but it was really cold and sucked to go out at 7am in my freezing jeep with no heat! But I digress. This week I am excited to link-up for the first time to FTSF (Finish The Sentence Friday)! Which I found out about through a blogger friend Dana. FTSF is that you are given a sentence each week and you finish it however you want, long or short. This week’s sentence was, “If I had a Million Dollars, I…”
So if I had a million dollars I would pay my for my college education and graduate school and then travel the world! College is a given and it is a huge burden on my family, plus I want to get the best education possible. As for travel, there are so many places I want to go and see before I die! This girl has only ever been on the East Coast, but I want to see the world. Every continent, every wonder of the world! The world is so beautiful and there are so many cultures and experiences that the majority of us will never know if we don’t travel. I don;t want that to be me (I guess this goes along with the education as well). I want to know the world, the people, the different lives we all live.
Okay, now on to the Finisher!
Tuesday: A Continuous Journey
Wednesday: Red Winter Kale Salad
Thursday: Vanilla Purple Sweet Potato Pancakes
Blog Posts I loved this week:
Hey! Want to try a new cardio “machine” for the new year? Try rowing ;)
Presley always say she is a bad writer, but I beg to differ :) I always love reading her “opinions” and posts, especially this one!
Trying to look perfect in our lives through social media, etc, is not just a disguise to others, but deception to ourselves.
Simple, realistic, and so important!
A checklist to help you with social media and your blog.
Love this list! Plus they sum it up perfectly at the end with, “DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY! Keep trying new things and tweak as you learn and grow.”
When we are true, our stories can help us connect and support. Christine’s response goes along with Carla’s post on truth!
O my, isn’t this the greatest idea? I am so doing this for 2014!
Where do you stand? Do you go out of your way to buy BPA-Free?
What’s real food? Find out here. It is simple and easy!
This was so interesting! I think we all just need to be aware of how we talk to one another.

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Shelter and warm clothes. Even though I wanted to die all week form the cold, I have to stop and truly be thankful that I have the resources I have. I could not imagine the pain and hardships those who are homeless or do not have coats and hats and heat are going through. So for this, I am truly thankful.
+ For the love and support I got on my Continuous Journey post! I love you all so much and you made me feel so much better about posting it! I was so scared to have it go up Tuesday morning. I kept going back on to WordPress and came close to unscheduleing it so many times, but I stuck to my guns and went for it and I am grateful and thankful that I did :)
+ Got my first “paycheck!” I feel like such an adult now ;)
+ Since Monday I have been Trich free again! So I guess the count can start back up! I have a really long way to go again as I have no eyelashes or brows this time so it will take a few months to get back to where I was a few weeks ago, but I can do it!
So Tell me:
Weekend plans? Homework, studying, testing a new recipe, and grocery shopping. O, and yoga…always yoga ;)
Finish the sentence…If I had one million dollars I would….
