Finish This: Week Twenty-five on the Twenty-fifth!

Linking up with the super talented and oh-so-generous hostesses: Nicole at Three 31, Jen at The Arizona Russums, Becky at The Java Mama, and Lisa at Coastlined. These wonderful ladies are giving away $25 gift cards {see all the 25s!} to four participants of today's link-up. What are you waiting for!? Jump on this link-up train!

I have a quarter to use a pay phone. I call either my mom, dad, or sister, depending on the situation. If I'm lost, I'll call Dad. If I'm shopping, I'll call Mom {I don't know why I'd interrupt shopping to use a pay phone, but we relish the hypothetical here, don't we}. And if I'm in trouble that I don't want my parents to know about, I'll call my sister. I'd try to call my bestie, but I only have her home phone number memorized {yep, we've been friends that long} and like most families I know who live in this century, their home phone has been disconnected for a while.

I found $25 in my pocket! I buy a book, a set of stationary, and a chai latte. Half Price Books + coffee shop = perfection.

I have 25 minutes to watch anything on TV. I watch "Say Yes to the Dress" or "The Office" or any rom-com on repeat. I'd say longer shows, but if I can't finish them, I don't want to watch them! It's probably because they're all drama or crime scene and I have to see the conclusion.

A meal I can prepare, from start to finish, in 25 minutes or less isn't really a meal, but let's face it: crack popcorn can be substituted for any meal and has the calories of about 3 meals. It's basically the perfect food....except not. But yeah, two ingredients. I'm all over that.

At the age of 25, I wish I'd known how important it is to be older than 25 when answering this question? Ha! I'll say something I've learned since turning 25. I learned that comparison is not worthwhile, that cooking can be fun when I've planned ahead, and that it's ok not to have my whole life figured out.

If I drive 25 miles from my house, I'd be in the mountains at a waterfall {east}. Close to visiting my sister who lives close to the Canadian border {north}. Headed to Powell's Books {south}. On a ferry {west}.

Thanks for hosting 25 weeks of fun, Nicole, Jen, Becky, and Lisa! And thanks for reading, friends!
