Finish This! 9th Edition

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather we are having now.  It was such a LONG winter that I didn’t think it would ever end!
Like every week, I am linking up through:

OK, let’s get going!

The best compliment I ever received….. was that someone thought I was my daughter’s sister (not her mother).  WOW!  Must be the good genes I inherited from my Mommy!  

Wearing red lipstick makes me feel…… self conscious.  I know that sounds weird, but it does.  I do not like drawing attention to myself; therefore, the red lipstick isn’t something I reach for.  ğŸ™‚

The best investment I’ve made……is in my daughter, Heather.  All the years of sacrifice and scariness of being a single Mom has paid off.  She truly is a bright spot in my life and to everyone she comes in to contact with.  And not to mention she just got promoted to Assistant Manager at her work (salon) so I am very proud of her!

My best childhood memory…..would be camping with my family.  So many memories that I will never forget!

even though we’re doing “chores” in this picture, we were having fun.

That wraps it up for me!  How would you answer these questions?

  1. We've just started camping w our girls and I HOPE the camping memories stick w them. The red lipstick question .. I have not heard a positive thing about it yet.. I may just have to try it again..

  2. Sounds like you did a pretty amazing job raising your girl! As a new parent, I commend you 1000 times over. It had to have been the hardest thing raising a little one on your own. You are a pretty incredible person for doing so.

  3. aww thanks Kristen! You are too kind. It was tough, but I had a lot of help from my parents and my now husband. I couldn't have asked for a more loving daughter! <3

  4. I feel the same about the red lipstick! My sister lives by it, and even though we look a lot alike, I just can't do it. Exciting news about your daughter!
