This is a fun thing I received in my e-mail and thought it would be fun to do on here! :) The name of the game is Finish That Sentence!

1. I’ve come to realize that my body. . . is pretty amazing. It can stretch out to crazy capacity while housing a baby and then just go back! Of course my body will never be exactly the same as it was pre-baby, but I'll take my curvalicious body in exchange for a Weebie ANY day! :)

2. I’ve come to realize that my job. . . is the most rewarding, challenging and absolutely exciting job I've had. It's my dream job.

3. I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving. . . I am unstoppable. I can drive safely all while contorting my body by throwing one arm in the backseat to feed my baby, sip my iced tea and answer my phone. (Please no lectures. I get it.)

4. I’ve come to realize that I need. . . a mouthguard when I sleep. Day 6 (and counting) of headache free days!!!

5. I’ve come to realize that I have lost. . .every game of Monopoly I've ever played. I hate that game because it does not end. And then I freak out and quit.

6. I’ve come to realize that I hate it when. . . I get in the car, turn it on, and the radio BLARES at me. I am a firm believer in turing the radio DOWN or OFF before exiting the car.

7. I’ve come to realize that if I’m drunk. . . it’s a case of mistaken identity because I don't drink.

8. I’ve come to realize that money… is a lot uglier than it used to be. It's paper. I wish we still used silver coins or gold bars to pay for things with. Less handy, yes, but a lot more fun! (And I complain about my purse being heavy NOW!)

9. I’ve come to realize that certain people. . . are happy people and they reflect that by how they act/what they say. And other people, just aren't. And that's just too bad.

10. I’ve come to realize that I’ll always. . . do whatever it takes to make family vacations a must, no matter how near or far. I want Levi to see and do as much as we are able to show him! Some of my greatest memories of my childhood are the time spent with my mom, dad and brother on vacation. And I just think it's important to have that time away with only your family.

11. I’ve come to realize that my sibling(s). . . could write a best selling novel and likely will. He is an excellent story teller.

12. I’ve come to realize that my mom… is one of the most fun people to be around. And to know her is to love her. She has 250 best friends, give or take a few.

13. I’ve come to realize that my cell phone. . . is too addicting. It just is.

14. I’ve come to realize that when I woke up this morning. . . I made Levi laugh and probably looked like a fool doing it.

15. I’ve come to realize that last night before I went to sleep. . . I realized we hadn't set the alarm, so I got out of bed to set it and I got really cold. So I jumped in bed and put my feet on Husby. He screamed "OHHH!!!" and scooted away. So then I got up again and put some socks on.

16. I’ve come to realize that right now I am thinking. . .that I want to watch Home Alone. I'm watching another movie and the dad from Home Alone is in it and now I can only focus on watching Home Alone and not this movie.

17. I’ve come to realize that my dad. . . has a big soft heart and is full of integrity. He has been blessed greatly for his diligence and hard work.

18. I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook. . . I check the status updates and appreciate the ones that took some thought and show some wit.

19. I’ve come to realize that today. . . I ate a really good biscuit from Popeye's. With honey!

20. I’ve come to realize that tonight. . . Wait. I ate the biscuit tonight. But I already used that one. So I've come to realize that tonight. . . I shared a Fresh Berry with Husby and neither of us would take the last bite. And I accidently called a hexagon a "hexacon".

21. I’ve come to realize that tomorrow. . . you will be able to eat off my floors.

22. I’ve come to realize that I really want to. . . get rid of a lot of useless STUFF in my house and make more room. Maybe I'll sell some stuff on EBAY.

23. I’ve come to realize that the person mostly likely to repost this is. . . a fabulous human being.

24. I’ve come to realize that life. . . is a gift. And so are other people's lives. So we need to enrich and enhance other peoples lives with friendship and encouragement and maybe others will do the same for you! :)

25. I’ve come to realize that this weekend. . . is the last weekend before CHRISTMAS! So you know what that means? We are taking Levi to see Santa....again. (Hey, I can't help it. I have a super cute outfit for him to wear for it!)

26. I’ve realized the best music to listen to when I am upset. . . Michael Buble. How can you not smile when listening to that guy? Love him.

27. I’ve come to realize that my friends. . . are the world's best. And most of them are really good cooks.

28. I’ve come to realize that this year. . . is one I will always look back on with the sweetest memories. Absolutely fantastic.

29. I’ve come to realize that my husband. . . opens his mouth every time he feeds Levi as if he is the one eating it. Hilarious.

30. I’ve come to realize that maybe I should. . . eat more fruit and veggies and less bread. Then maybe my immune system wouldn't be so WEAK!

31. I’ve come to realize that I love. . . dates with my 2 boys.

32. I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand. . . percentages. No matter how many times anyone teaches me how to take 33% off something, my brain simply can not do it. It just doesn't make sense. Please just tell me how much it will be with the sale. I can't figure it out otherwise, so I just bring extra money.

33. I’ve come to realize my past. . . is something I love to reflect on and laugh about with others who lived it with me.

34. I’ve come to realize that parties. . . aren't parties without a cheese ball and wheat thins.

35. I’ve come to realize that I’m totally terrified. . . of condensation. Especially milk jug condensation.

36. I’ve come to realize that my life. . . is a great journey of new experiences and adventure that will one day fill a book of wonderful family stories.

Day 18.



So far, our story is as follows:

Caesar Augustus said that a census must be taken. So Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem to register. Mary was going to have a baby. An angel told Mary her baby would be the Son of God. In Bethlehem, it came time for Mary to have her baby. But there was no room for them at the inn. So she had her Son in a stable. She wrapped him up in swaddling clothes...and laid him in a manger.
In a field nearby, shepherds tended their flocks. An angel appeared and the shepherds were afraid. "Do not be afraid," said the angel.
"I bring you news of great joy. Today in Bethlehem, a Saviour has been born. He is Christ the Lord. You will find Him lying in a manger."
Then, more angels joined the first one.
They all said, "Glory to God in the Highest!"
I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. I love Michael Buble and I am scared of milk condensation, too.

    (Bean wants to say hi: i b bn 6tt d 54bbnmcbnv xvb)

    (I think he just broke my keyboard

  2. Cool list! I am amazed at how long my right arm can reach all the way around a rear facing car set to give a small child a cracker!

    As for happy people...they choose to be happy, it isnt luck or an accident. People who are happy are so because they are grateful for the life they have.

  3. This made me laugh so stinking hard. Especially the condensation one. Oh little Whitters.

    OH! and "Whitney V Whitters the put down that phone while you're driving...10 and 2, young lady! 10 and 2!!" That's my best impersonation of my own mom telling me that.

  4. what a fun finish the sentence game!!!! If I get some time, I will do it for sure!!

  5. What a fun post to read... thanks for sharing!

  6. #29 - I do the same thing and my husband laughs at me EVERY time!! It can't be helped. It's just a reflex!

  7. i had a party at my house last week just so i could use a special bowl that was given to me for a cheese ball. that is NOT normal. ;)
    but i got compliments and that's all that matters.

  8. I am blessed to wear a bite guard at night too!!! It is not cute but it helps!!!!

  13. Hi!
    I've been reading your blog for a while, I found it through marriage confessions. I love the way you write and I look forward to your updates. Like you, (a few months back) I also want to be a housewife... but for right now... I'm stuck at work (but at least its a great job).

    Anyways Merry Christmas and Thank you for a fabulous read!

    :) - Jen
