Three Things

I am totally stealing this from Emily. She did it way back in July of 2017.  I think I've shared before my love for these kinds of posts!

Three Things I Would Never Give Up

Three Favourite Vegetables





I really wanted to pick more than three here!
One of my favourite "me" suppers is to eat a big green salad and read a book.

 Usually happens in the morning. #momlifeSleeping with a toddler is like sharing your bed with a drunk octopus looking for its car keys! Funny motherhood kids meme quote

The drunk octopus one is like sleeping with Rachel
 and I laughed so hard I cried.

Jimmy Fallon's hashtags
(Dave introduced me to these and they make us laugh so hard!)

Three Things That Make Me Cry

The kids singing at VBS

watching Les Mis -- either the musical or the movie

books where a mom dies


  1. Oh my goodness...the mom memes are so funny and so real! :)

  2. 1) I've been to Estonia and really liked it. It had a very old world feel to it and I loved that.
    2) I actually had to google Carmex lip gloss; I have never heard of it in my life! Most people I know like chapstick. My go-to is lucas paw paw (consistency of vaseline) or just plain vaseline.
    3) The mom memes had me ROLLING with laughter. "Dinnertime: Lost my Shit. All of it." ME EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!!!!
    4) So books where a mom dies is your trigger like books with children in peril are for me? I should have never recommended "I liked my life" to you!!! I will make note for the future.

  3. I did this a while back (stole it from Emily too) and had a hard time coming up with 3 vegetables, I hate them ha. I have actually been to Alaska - I feel so well-traveled NOT. How does Emily not know what Carmex is?? I'm always with my Burt's Bees Wax!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
