Meet the Sullivans: Finish This

Finish This

One of my favorite things about reading other blogs is getting a little peek into how other people live their lives. I love seeing how other moms spend their days with their children, what books people are reading, the food they're cooking for their families, and what's on their minds. I pretty sure I'm not alone in this! It's all about telling our stories, and sometimes, just like life, they're a mixed up hodge podge of thoughts and details.

So, I'm linking up today with the Java Mama, Three 31 and others for Finish This.

My favorite makeup item is… Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream! I love this stuff. It goes on so easily over moisturizer and it gives just enough coverage for everyday wear. On special occasions I add some foundation and/or concealer to the mix, but on a regular day I just wear the BB cream. I love it!

 Some of my other favorites!

The best book I ever read was…The Help. I love when a story takes place in a long time ago -- time period movies / shows and books are my favorite. I like looking at how different the clothes, social norms and everything else was. And the story is fantastic. The book is an easy read and you really grow to love & hate a lot of the characters. Planning to read it again this summer!

My favorite TV show is… All time favorite? That would have to be Friends! Or favorite that's on tv right now? I can't decide between The Walking Dead, Girls, Downton Abbey or Veep.

The most spontaneous thing I’ve ever done is… This is a hard one. I'm not spontaneous in the larger sense, like taking off on a trip at the drop of hat or making a big purchase or decision. I might, you know, decide to take Owen to Target after dinner, or something -- which is about as spontaneous as I get these days.

I prefer DOGS/CATS because … I like dogs. This doesn't mean I don't like cats. We always had cats and loved them just like I loved out dogs. My family had many animals when I was growing up. At one time we had two frogs, two mice, a rabbit, three dogs, three cats and a fish. Having said that, I found over all those years that I mostly liked the dogs the best. They are easy to care for and became a huge part of our family. They were like one of us.


I met my husband... At the gym. He was working there at the time and slowly over months and months we became friends. Eventually he asked me out and the rest is history! You can read the story HERE.

Thanks for reading!

Guilty! Why is it that we love reading about others so much?? It's something women must be born with. My husband will never EVER understand why I watch (and love) Keeping up with the Kardashians. I digress. Anyway, I will have to try that BB cream and I always have an EOS egg on hand :)

BB cream is my fave, too! Especially with two littles, I really don't have time for makeup! I like BB cream, bronzer and mascara and I'm good to go for the day!

I also love BB cream, and I use that same mascara!

I enjoyed The Help also.

I've tried tinted moisturizer, but I've never tried BB cream - I might need to after reading about how much you love yours:) Loved getting a little peek into your life today!:)

I use BB cream too and really like it. Have you tried CC cream? I haven't found one that I particularly like or provides the coverage I thought it would. I don't wear a lot of makeup, but when I do I want 'some' coverage. I almost chose 'The Help' as my favorite book. I read it three times, watched the movie the weekend it was in theaters, then read it again. I absolutely LOVE that story.

The Help.... yes!!!

Conan's face in that photo is too funny! And I agree with Friends and Walking Dead (although Walking Dead usually stresses me out, but it's sooo good!). The Help has been on my reading list for awhile, I'll have to bump it up to the top :)
