Fill In The Blanks Friday

I'm gonna take a page from my cousin and Lauren at thelittlethingswedo and opt for an easy post with:
Thanks Lauren for the blanks & this image!
1. The last thing I ate was PROTEIN cramming: three egg scramble with a handful of cheeses mixed in. (I think I've eaten more in the last 24 hours at my parents than I have in four days back at my own house....)

2. The last time I went to the beach was well technically I'm at the coast right now...and will be taking the dogs to the actual beach manana. It was seriously awesome yesterday when they could smell the salt in the air and broke into their huge doggie smiles :) In fact, if you're not my FB friend, here's a picture for you, just to make you smile too:

3. My last vacation was to here right now. I'm pretty sure Mom and Dad's counts as vacation these days, especially since this is the first time I've felt emotionally ready to really spend much time back in my old stomping grounds...and even if I'm grading while here.

4.The last place I drove was to my massage this morning and back to the house.

5. The last song I listened to was well let's check the Ipod since I just finished running: Jason Aldean's Dirt Road Anthem.

6. The last thing I watched on TV was Monday night football at a bar in downtown PDX this last week. On my own TV....I can't remember since it hasn't been turned on since June or July.

7. The last time I said "I love you" was probably last night either to my parents before bed, to my bestie when we parted ways, or to the dogs just cause they need lots of extra love right now. ;)

And it's Wine Walk Friday y'all---glad to be home where strangers head nod and wave, runs include major hills, massages are cheap, dad's loving on my crazy dogs, my best friend Deir and her lil fam are in town on pre-deployment visits, other friends abound, the beach is located, the church of my youth feeds, the trees are just turning and the nights are crisp, and life just feels's good to be here and I hope each one of you is having a fantastic Friday as well.


  1. I am glad you got a chance to spend time at your parents' home! That is such a treat for me as I feel so safe and protected and cared for when I am around my parents. It's like I can hand over this burden of always having to do everything for myself and I let them help out for a chance - which they seem to appreciate and enjoy as everyone likes to feel needed!

    1. It is nice isn't it? Sometimes I feel bad, but everytime I leave Dad remarks how "quiet" it is around their place aka his way of saying it's lonely and they miss having me/us kids around. Plus I've realized these days that we all take care of our parents too in other ways. Always a give and take, and I know my father has mentioned several times how much it means to him to be able to "serve" and take care of those he loves...
