I Really Hate Mondays...

Can someone please remind me why I have to work?  I want to stay home.  I don't even have to be sleeping right now, if I could be cleaning or whatever, I'd be fine with that.  I just hate this whole work thing, it sucks.  I'd much rather be a "stay-at-home-mom".  I'm not saying that that's easier by ANY means but I just have so much to do outside of work that I never get anything done.  It sucks especially after a busy weekend.

So, I started out the weekend with Jill's birthday celebration.  We'll just say that Mandie was feeling pretty dang good by the end of the night.  Oh yea.  There was no throwing up but at one point, I came into the bar & leaned my head on Jill's husband's shoulder.  Ha!  We even went into "teenager mode" & took some selfies:

Sassy, Chelsie.

Gangsta Jill & Chelsie.

Badass Mandie & Chelsie.

Ha!  We had so much fun.  There were many, MANY more pictures but I cleaned a whole bunch out cuz we looked like fools.  Tee hee!

Saturday was another birthday celebration for my friend, Gladys.  We hit up a sand bar on the Wisconsin River & hung there until a storm came in.  Since we had children with us, we were pretty well, this girl was hungover from the night before.  Ha, ha!

Birthday Girl, Gladys.

FM hates the loud motor.  Ha!

Pretty lil IM.

Future love - C & IM.  <3

& then yesterday, I just did some housework, played a little Wii & rested.  I was pretty dang tired after the crazy weekend.

Oh, I almost forgot - I'm already in bed watching an episode of New Girl when I hear Goose yelling my name.  I get out to the living room & he's ducking as a bat is flying around.  Now, I used to be quite the "bat wrangler" at my old place so I snapped into that mode.  I told Goose to close all doors as I ran to get the broom.  It only took a couple of minutes, a few screams & one time hitting myself to get the bat outta the house.  

What...a...weekend.  :)


  1. WHAT there was a bat in your house?!?! That is insane... I mean I'm not particularly afraid of bats I don't think... but I would absolutely FREAK OUT if one was in my home! It's so nice that you guys got to go out and act like teenagers (haha) for your friend's birthday. Now that I'm a mom I feel like people expect me to be all grown and classy and have 2 glasses of wine and then be done buttttt that's just not my style! And you on the water with a hangover... that was me at the zoo on Sunday hahah

    1. Oh yea, bats don't bother me one bit. Now if it were a snake, I would be hauling ass! I HATE snakes!

      I typically do behave myself but I let loose & it was a lot of fun to do so. I'm usually more worried about getting home cuz my hubby doesn't quite know when to quit so I always have to drive but since we were so close to home, we walked so I didn't feel like I couldn't drink. It was nice. :)

  2. I have to agree, Mondays often steal all the joys of weekends. But, if you had a great weekend - like you clearly had - then you should just forget about those Monday blues.

    1. Monday blues have now been forgotten...however, it does help that it is Tuesday now. Tee hee! :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
