Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

I am a HUGE believer in this.  One of the things that I'll always remember is my friend, Robyn, telling me when her kids were younger that they enjoyed hanging out with me because I talked to them like people, not kids.  That has always stuck with me & it makes me feel all warm & fuzzy on the inside.  I always have conversations with the kids surrounding me.

I have even told Goose that even though some of the stuff that flies out of the girls mouths is so ridiculous to him, listening to them will go miles.  He does have a difficult time with that & that's why at the end of the day, I probably know more about his kids than he does.  I talk/listen to them about the little stuff, the big stuff & everything in between.  

I know that Goose has an especially hard time when Trouble talks about getting this tattooed & this pierced.  It drives him nuts.  I've told him that he just needs to just let her talk about all the things that she WANTS to do.  Just because she talks about doing it, doesn't mean that she's going to be doing it because she's not 18 & she doesn't have her own money.  I told her that when she's 18 & has her own money, she can do whatever she wants to herself but that she has to remember that anything she does to her body, will be there for the rest of her life.  I explained to her that the removal process of tattoos is worse than the tattoo so she needs to put plenty of thought into it.  As for piercings, I showed her the mark I have on my nose from my nose ring that has not gone away & will not go away.

I give her the tools/advice to make the right decisions & I really think being able to talk to one another helps.

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…
