Fill in the Blank Friday.

1.   The phrase or punctuation I overuse most is     ..... Definitely ellipses.  And hyphens.  I love punctuation...  

2.  Today I am thankful for   The mortgage interest deduction.  The fact that I pay a ridiculous amount of my mortgage to interest and taxes means that I get a nice present this time of the year from the federal government. :)    

3.  My best friend is    My mom.  She's the one person that I talk to every day, and she knows me better than anyone.  :)  

4.  A quirky thing about me is     I hate to sit in silence.  The tv is ALWAYS on at my house, even if for nothing but the noise and I can't drive far without the radio on.  Even at work, I have to have some tunes going all the time. 

5.  This weekend I     am going to be watching the UNC-Duke game Saturday night.  Go Heels!  

6.  Something that worries me is      Money.  I kind of over-spent last year, and I'm nervous about doing it again this year.  I really need (and want) to create a strict budget-- I just haven't yet.  

ps-- I found this image and loved it until I saw the "budgeted item" on top of the pig.  But I thought I'd share it anyway because it's so funny.  Hahahaha.  :)

7.  On my night stand you would find     My cell phone w/ charger, remote controls, a hand mirror, cups of water from the previous several nights, my nighttime moisturizer, a couple books, my Bible, etc.  My night stand is kind of a crazy place in my room-- it's home to lots of things.  


  1. I feel like we should be related or something. =P The TV is *always* on at my house too. I even keep it on while I'm reading or cleaning. Sometimes I leave it on if I'm going to be gone for a couple hours so that I don't come home to a quiet house. Also, my night stand is a huge collection of things. Books, lotion, pens, hair ties, a brush... I'm sure there's more too.

    I'm pretty sure I have been seriously overspending lately. I guess it's kind of my therapy since Joe is gone. I never thought I'd say that shopping is my kind of therapy...

  2. 3 and 4 are my favorites! I am COMPLETELY the same with the tv- I always need noise!

  3. Me again, traveling through your posts>>>>>>>>>

    To #6 I say JOIN THE CLUB! If gas keeps going up it is going to break my piggy bank! kt

  4. I am the same way about the TV being on. I fall asleep to it on at night!

    Our nightstands are very similar! I have so much on it (and it's not that big!!)
