Wow, What A Weekend...

I am one exhausted girl this morning.  It was a busy weekend.  I don't even know if I have the energy to write this post but I'll try.  Ha!

Friday - I headed up to have a sleepover/movie night with my friend, Courtney.  She lives an hour away & I like to get up to see her about once a month but this time, I stayed the night.  We started our evening off with supper at a local Chinese place.  It was delish. I even tried sushi for the first time.  It was a California Roll & I really liked it!  Yum!  We then headed back to her place, played with her son until his bedtime & then we watched Paranormal Activity.  I know, we're both a little late on the boat with that one & we both thought it was horrible!  I cannot understand how they could be making a FIFTH one of these.  It wasn't even scary.  We were both disappointed that we wasted precious time on it.  So, since we both knew that we liked Catching Fire, we watched that one & then hit the sack.

Don'…

Musical Monday...

Doo-Wop (That Thing) by Lauren Hill
It's been a while since I've heard this song & when it came blaring out of my phone this morning while I was listening to my "Dope 90's Tunes" playlist while getting ready, I knew it was this week's Musical Monday song.  It's so much fun!  Enjoy!  :)

Goliath, Raging Bull, X-Flight, Oh My...

So, I just totally realized that I have yet to post about our lil vacation we took last week.  We went down to Gurnee, Illinois to Six Flags: Great America.  For Trouble's birthday, she was able to bring a friend, so she brought SK (who I love to death).  Anywho, here are some things that I learned on our trip.

 - Even when Trouble has a friend, she'll still act out when she doesn't get her way.
- Shopping with Sunshine is quite enjoyable.  She manages her money well & she's quite the bargain shopper.
-  Goose can sure put down some beers while us ladies shop.
-  SK can rock the cross eyed look:

-  Trouble has the "I-Smelt-A-Bad-Fart" face DOWN:

-  Sunshine is just a lil cutie:  

-  I love crabcakes & hush puppies...well, I know that but it was confirmed:

-  Trouble & SK are some pretty girls (again, I already knew but had to share): 

-  When we have an attractive waiter, the girls must get pictures with him:

 -  Selfies must be taken at ALL times…

June Birchbox...

Yes, I'm really far behind as I'm just now getting to do my first Birchbox review.  Life has just been one insane thing after another!  Eeek!



Laqa & Co. Lip Lube - I love this stuff!  I put it on over my chapstick & it gives my lips a purple tint & I love purple!  :)

Egyptian Magic - I actually have not tried this yet & to be perfectly honest, I don't know where it went.  Hmmm...

Suki cleanser - I would probably like this product a whole more if it wasn't a lemon scent.  I dislike lemon scented stuff...actually, anything citrus.  Yuck!

Love set (shampoo, conditioner, multi-benefit treatment & perfume) - this stuff was okay, the hair products really smoothed but I did not really care for the scent.  As for the perfume, I did like that!  


After taking the lil quiz, it told me to hit up Chicago...I don't need a plane to go there, it's about a four hour drive or I could take the train.  However, it really did show that I am a real midwest girl. …

Funny Friday...

Okay, if you don't know/like this movie...you gots to get yo' ass outta here!  Love this movie & it was one of the first ones I went to as a "big girl".  My cousin & I went by ourselves (after being dropped off, of course) & we loved it!  Who wouldn't?!












Thankful Thursday...

Ohhh, what are we thankful for today?  Lets see...

  ~  Lunches with one of my most favorite people in the whole world...& then she buys!  Awhoo hoo!

  ~  For weekend plans with an old friend - dinner, movies & convo.  Cannot wait!

  ~  A late afternoon snack of gummy bears.  The only thing better would be Swedish Fish.

What are YOU thankful for on this Thursday?


It's A Good Day When...

Oh oh, Blog Bandit has struck for the millionth time!  This time, the bandit has hit up Erin (my female soulmate - ha!).  Lets do this thing!


...I get to spend time with my niece, D.  Watching her crawl around after the kitties & squealing makes me smile.

...one of the bosses goes on a breakfast sandwich run.  Sausage biscuit!  Awhoo hoo!

...my hubby buys me five pounds of cheese whips from the local cheese factory.

...I have Swedish Fish.

...my hair doesn't do it's weird flippy thing.

...I can get in the boat with my hubby & just go.  I've really come to love boating.

...I can wear sweatpants.

...I can sit on the front porch just relaxing.

...I can just get in the car & drive with the music loud.

A To Z Of Books...

Oh oh, the Blog Bandit has struck again!  This time, I stole from Jenni.  Thanks, girl!  :)


Author you’ve read the most books from. James Patterson.  I love his books.  They are such a fun, easy read.  I love him! Best sequel ever. Ohhh...tough one...I'm gonna go with Catching Fire. Currently reading.
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris.

Drink of choice while reading. Water. E-reader or physical book? Before I got my Kindle, I never thought that I would like it.  I always liked having the physical book...I was wrong, I think I do like reading on my Kindle more. Fictional character you probably would have actually dated in high school. Probably Peeta from The Hunger Games. Glad you gave this book a chance. There were some Dean Koonitz books that I wanted to give up on but I read them through.  I enjoyed the stories but the fact that he has to describe every single thread on someone's couch gets to be a bit much. Hidden gem book. Anything by my friend, Meredith.  Check them out, they are…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

Lucy, you knew your stuff!  How many of you lie about your age?  I don't but that's because I don't think that I am 33 years old.  I really don't.  Sometimes I feel younger especially when I'm cruising down the street with some Lil Wayne or Jason Derulo blaring.  Then there are other times that I feel older, like at night when all I wanna do is come home, eat supper asap, get in my jammies, relax & be in bed by 10:00.  I think that sounds marvelous...as do most senior citizens.

I agree that you're only as young/old as you feel so right now...after tanning, shopping at Maurice's during lunch & then coming back to work for a pretzel & Mountain Dew snack...I feel about 28.  Tee hee!

To Be Honest Tuesday...

To be honest, this whole working thing sucks!  I mean, really.  It gets in the way of EVERYTHING!  & I don't just mean fun things either.  I have vet appointments to go to this afternoon, I have to get Trouble in to get some new medication, I have to take Sunshine in to freeze a wart off her hand, etc., etc., etc.  There is always something to do & here I have to be stuck, at work.  I have been trying to get Goose to agree to me quitting my job & then working part-time at a book store or something...but even those hours would get in the way of things.  It just sucks.  I want to win the lottery - just enough that I can pay off bills & then live comfortably only working part-time.  Is that too damn much to ask?!  I really don't think so!  So, if anyone has some extra cash just laying around & they're wondering what to do with it, please send 'er my way.  I'll gladly put it to good use.  :)

June Ipsy Bag...

Okay, so I must make a confession:  I am CRAZY about getting packages in the mail!  So much so that I now have three that I get a month:  Ipsy, Influenster and Birchbox.  I love them & I'm like a kid on Christmas morning when I see one of these packages sitting & waiting for me to dig through.  So, here is my review of this month's Ipsy bag!




Dream Waves Beach Spray:  since I have short hair, this did not work very well in it.  So, I gave it to Trouble to try & it seemed to work really well on it.  She used it after spending some time in an indoor waterpark on our vacation.

Jessie's Girl liquid eyeliner:  I cannot stand liquid eyeliner!  Blah!  However, I tried it just to make sure & I was still in the "I-Prefer-My-Eyeliner-Crayon-By-Cover-Girl" club.  Trouble & her friend, SK, LOVED it though!  They are crazy about liquid eyeliner so they can do the cat eye look.  :)

Wind Kissed body spray:  I am a sucker for perfumes & body sprays especia…

Musical Monday...

Yes, everyone, that there is some Wham! action for your Monday morning.  I just need a little pick-me-up from my exhausting vacation.  I thought vacations were supposed to be relaxing...I need to come back to work to relax!  How awful is that?!  I'll blog about many things in some upcoming posts but for now, enjoy some young George Michael!  :)

To Be Honest Tuesday...

To be honest, I'm more loving/emotional then I let on.  I usually like to keep my emotions to myself, even from my husband but the last couple of days have been pretty hard for me.  My cat, Chandler, has been missing since Friday.  She's never done this before.  I've gone to the humane society to fill out paperwork & provide them with pictures of her.  She's twelve years old & she was the first pet that I had.  I miss her very much & I've been finding it hard to sleep.

Trouble having the good heart that I know she's always had (just doesn't use most of the time) went on Craigslist with two of her friends & went to pick up a kitten for me to help me feel better about Chandler being missing.  I met the kitten during lunch today & as soon as I let him out (apparently, it's a he), I started sobbing uncontrollably & then called Goose.  I felt that having this kitten was like I was giving up on Chandler & that's the last thing …

Musical Monday...

In celebration of True Blood's final season premium coming up on Sunday, I'm going with the theme song - Bad Things by Jace Everett.  This song is just as sassy as the show & that's pretty damn sassy!  Ha!
So, who of you are True Blood fanatics?  Who's your favorite character?  Have you read the books?

Funny Friday...

If you don't think this shit is funny then you gots to go home cuz this is hilarious!  I love the evil looks on the scissors & rock after they have murdered.  Cracks me right up.  Tee hee!  Yea, in case you didn't know, I'm a little morbid & strange.  Ha!
