Friday Finisher 1/10/14

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…”

Janine's Confessions of A Mommyaholic

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!

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….

  1. Thanks so much for sharing my post! I’m glad that it made sense and seems to have connected with people. If I had a million dollars? I would travel! I have such a bad case of wanderlust right now!

  2. Thanks for sharing my post! I love link sharing posts! :)

    Those kale bagels look really interesting! I just bought a bunch of kale that I need something to do with… hmm.

    If I had a million dollars, I would buy a lot of running shoes and sign up for Disney races. lol!

  3. Thank you for the mention on my blog post on Choosing Raw!! You are too sweet!!

    This is a fantastic list of finds and links. I’m so glad to hear you’re doing well!

    Have a awesome day Rebecca!!

  4. So glad you joined us for the first time this week and I know what you mean about paying for college and was actually on my list, too. I have student loan debt now from going to college and would love nothing more to be able to pay off and never have to worry about that again here also.

  5. I know what a weird week for weather…and now it’s going to be a bit warmer. I live in the east coast too, but I love winters. I hate sweating and the heat, so I’ll take the cold and snow anyday…I know I’m weird.
