Funny Friday...

Okay, if you don't know what movie this is from, then you gots to go!  Ha!  I'm just kidding, come back.  It's from Monty Python & the Holy Grail.  I haven't seen this movie in AGES so I may have to make the hubby go rent it or see if it's Amazon cuz it's been WAY too long since I've giggled at this movie.

For all you folks out there that have not seen this & you want a stupid laugh, you totally need to check this out.  I mean, for real!




"RUN AWAY!"  (from a killer bunny - tee hee!)


"Bring out the dead..."
Okay, okay, okay - I'll stop now.  Have a good weekend & I hope that you don't get attacked by any killer bunnies!  :)

Death Will Become You...

Is this blog title a little harsh?  Maybe a tad.  Well, you know what, I don't care cuz there is a list of people forming that I'm gonna beat the shit out.  Yea, this girl is steamed & I'm thinking of ways to take some people off this earth.  Morbid & disturbing, yes, but when you mess with people I love, I'm gonna picture ways of making you pay!

So, right now the people on my "chopping block", so to speak, are PPB & Douche Donny.  Yup.  Neither of these folks did anything to me directly but they've made people I love sad/upset & I cannot have that!  You hurt my people emotionally, I'm gonna hunt you down (in my brain) & cuz you some major physical pain.  Oh yes.  The nicest thing that runs through my mind is getting these two & putting them on a crappy little raft & pushing them out to sea with nothing & just hope that one would be pushed overboard by the other & the other would eventually be starve to death or be…

Things That Piss Me Right Off...

My new partner in crime Amanda (we're gonna take over the world together) posted a lovely blog about things that just get under her skin & I was all like "hey, I have lots of things that piss me off...I gotta do this too".  So, the Blog Burglar has struck again!

  1.  Teenagers that talk in text.  I hate it!  Even in text I hate some of them - YOLO, LOL, LMAO, etc.  Hate them!  Then when they do it in verbal communication - oh no, you didn't!  So dumb.  If this is the best our youth has to offer us, please off me now cuz I don't want to live in a world where our next president will be up during their State of Union address using these terms.  "We may as well pass this law because, well, YOLO."  Ugh.


  2.  Sitting through the ENTIRE end credits of a movie to only see about ten seconds of someone moving stones/rocks with their mind.  X-Men: Days of Future Past, I loved you but that was a horrible teaser, give me something juicier like Wolverine gettin…

Thankful Thursday...

It's another beautiful day here in 'Sconnie so there is much to be thankful for.  So, lets get this show on the road!

  1.  New phone.  The hubby called this morning & said that he's continuing to have issues with his phone & would like to go tonight to upgrade to the Galaxy 5 & then he said that I might as well upgrade as well as I've been talking about doing it eventually (even though I love my Galaxy 2).  I am so excited to bust outta work at 5:00, go pick him up & hit US Cellular!  New phone, here Mandie comes!

  2.  Porch Monkey-ing it.  Since it's been so nice here, I've been spending as much time as possible out on the front porch.  We moved the table & chairs from the back deck to the front porch & I've added some candle jars with rocks in them & a tealight candle for some zen.  I love it!

  3.  Summer activities/jobs.  I just got Sunshine all signed up for summer sessions of dance (jazz) & gymnastics.  She is so exc…

May Ipsy Goodies...

So, my bestie, Kim, got me into this Ipsy thing.  I got my first bag in the mail about two weeks ago.  Yea, it has taken me this long to try everything so I could give a full report.


I was SO excited when I tore into this.  Such a cute lil bag full of goodies!  Awhoo hoo!

eva-nyc hair mask.  I loved this!  It smells wonderful & made my hair really soft.  Since my hair can get quite greasy, I've decided to use this as a weekly treatment than a daily conditioner.

Pacifica eyeshadow.  These people know me, it's white with purple (my favorite color!).  This stuff was a lil thick for my liking but I love the shimmer it has.  I'll still be using it periodically.

Mee night cream.  I've never been one for night cream, I figured that was only for "old ladies" but ever since I got this, I've been using it.  It was the perfect size to take camping with me over the Memorial Day weekend.

Hang Tan suntan lotion.  I didn't use this but Sunshine did.  It smelt am…

To Be Honest Tuesday...

To be honest, I cannot wait to go home to eat supper.  Yea, I'm that damn excited about our dinner this evening - BBQs, baked beans, potato chips & dip & strawberry shortcake.  How can a person NOT be excited about that meal?!  I mean, really?!  I've really been enjoying the weekly dinner menu we've been doing.  We have not had any repeats & for the most part, everyone has enjoyed what has been made & we've only been eating out on the weekends.

My Memorial Day weekend was amazing!  I went up to my "happy place" on Friday morning.  My grandparents were camping so I bunked with them.  Someone asked me what we did & here it is:  eat, play Uno for quarters, eat some more, have a fire, sleep, eat, go shopping, eat, shopped a lil more, played 5 Second Rule, eat, fire, sleep, eat, more Uno, eat, hang out on the beach, eat & then go home.  I had told Goose before I left that I planned to gain 30 pounds...that didn't happen but after all th…

Musical Monday...

Yes, I realize that it is not Monday but it's kinda like Monday as it's our first workday of the week.  Whatever.  Here is my Musical Monday/Tuesday selection:


Come With Me Now by Kongos.
The first time I heard this song, I feel right in love with it especially the according part, it just grabbed me & wouldn't let go.  Enjoy!  :)

Thankful Thursday...

I have lots to be thankful for on this 22nd day of May, it'll be hard to keep it to just three things but here we go:

  1.  Vacation.  Today, I was outta work at noon & will not be returning until Tuesday morning.  I am SO excited!  I'm leaving tomorrow morning for my "happy place" but I have so many things to do beforehand so I decided to take the afternoon off to do what needs to be done.  Awhoo hoo!

  2.  Warm weather.  The last two nights have been beautiful here in Central Wisconsin.  Tuesday night was spent cleaning my car out & hanging with D in the yard.  Last night, I sat on the porch working on an invite list for my upcoming spa party with some music playing until Jill came over to visit.

  3.  Strawberry Shortcake.  I love strawberry shortcake, it's my favorite dessert ever.  Goose went & got Dairy Queen for everyone last night & he brought me home a strawberry shortcake Blizzard, it was amazing. No jokes whatsoever!  I already want ano…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

I love this SO much, I cannot even explain to you how much I love this.  It's so damn true & should be a motto for many young ladies out there.  There is so much more positive that can come out of "opening books" & "blowing minds".  I mean, come on, what kind of girl would you rather be - a smart educated one or a lil tramp?  I'd rather be a smart educated one but that's just me.  Nobody will talk negatively about the girl who's bettering herself by being a strong, confident, empowered female.  However, the girl that is off banging this guy & blowing that guy, people are not going to respect & will talk negatively about.  So, ladies, only do/say things that you would be proud of & don't do things that you would frown upon others doing.

There is my life lesson for the day!  :)

To Be Honest Tuesday...

To be honest, I bawled like a frickin' baby when I watched Sunshine dance her ballet number at her recital over the weekend.  I saw the recital twice & I cried both times.  She is such a lil beauty.






She's the middle gal.  :)



For her jazz number, they danced to Jump by The Movement & it was so much fun to watch.  They actually had some parts where they could "free-style" & she did some moves just for my sister & I that made us giggle with delight.  










The rest of the recital was pretty good as well.  There were some numbers that were just amazing & took my breath away like the ballet number called Jasmine Flower, I had to take pictures cuz it was just plain awesome!







Musical Monday...

Today's Musical Monday selection come from Sunshine's dance recital this weekend (which I'll talk about in another blog).  Anywho, it's called Robot by Trip Lee.  A fun song to bounce to & hopefully keep you awake!  Enjoy!  :)

Funny Friday...

These dang t-rex jokes crack me up every single time.  I don't know why I get such amusement from them but I do...I guess I'm a little mean that way, giggling at poor t-rex's lack of arm.  Ha!  There I go again!  So mean but, really, is there nothing funnier than picturing a t-rex trying to knit?!  I think not!

I am really happy that it's Friday.  However, this weekend is Sunshine's dance recital weekend which means there will be LOTS of running.  Tonight, we're just gonna take it easy.  Tomorrow, I'm gonna try to catch my cousin's soccer game in the morning & then it's time to get Sunshine's hair & makeup done, go out to lunch with her & some other ladies, go to her recital, then off to my other cousin's for a spa party (I'm gonna need that!) & then home to get some sleep.  Sunday, start all over again - do her hair & makeup, go to another showing of her recital, come home to do chores, get her ready for her 4th &am…

I Just Don't Understand...

Here I go, stealing another great blog idea.  This time from the beautiful, smiley Erin (who I could swear was my soulmate in another life - ha!).  Anywho, it's a blog about things I don't understand, so lets begin:

I don't understand...

   ...why I keep the name badbrewpack.  I really should change it to "StealerOfThoughts" or "RecycledBlogs" cuz I'm always stealin' on other people's blog ideas.



    ...why most young ones nowadays have the "I-Don't-Care-About-Anything" attitude.  I mean, really, knock that shit off cuz it's really frickin' annoying!



   ...why my Mountain Dew, string cheese & Swedish Fish addiction are so bad.  It could be worse!  I could have an addiction to whiskey, crack cocaine & cigarettes...but I do not!






   ...why my husband cannot just sit & watch a television show without flipping channels.  It drives me insane in the membrane!



   ...why I cannot be paid to just sit around in my jamm…
